Author Quotes

Who thinks of reward serves himself, not God.

"Know thyself" means: devote time each day to studying yourself... ferreting out your weakness, working at self-improvement, purifying your immortal soul.

Promote yourself, but do not demote another.

Sincerity makes an untruth seem like a truth, while insincerity makes a truth seem like an untruth.
