A Rose For a Smile

The most beautiful people we have known
are those who have known defeat, known
suffering, known struggle, known loss,
and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a
sensitivity, and an understanding of
life that fills them with compassion,
gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.

Standing for Truth

Persecution cannot harm him who stands
by Truth. Did not Socrates fall proudly
a victim in body? Was not Paul stoned
for the sake of the Truth? It is our
inner self that hurts us when we
disobey and kills us when we betray.
