Author Quotes

Let nothing disturb you,
Nothing dismay you;
All things are passing:
God never changes.
Patient endurance
Attains all that it strives for;
Those who have God
Find they lack nothing.
God alone suffices.

Let nothing trouble you,
let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing;
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who possesses God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.

To reach something good it is very useful to have gone astray, and thus acquire experience.
