Ash Wednesday Feast of Janani Luwum, Archbishop of Uganda, Martyr, 1977 Men must not content themselves with the lawfulness of their employments, but must consider whether they use them, as they are to use everything, as strangers and pilgrims that are baptised into the resurrection of Jesus Christ, that we are to follow Him in a wise and heavenly course of life, in the mortification of the worldly desires, and in purifying and preparing their souls for the blessed enjoyment of God. For to be vain, or proud, or covetous, or ambitious, in the common course of our business, is as contrary to these holy tempers of Christianity as cheating and dishonesty. If a glutton were to say, in excuse of his gluttony, that he only eats such things as it is lawful to eat, he would make as good an excuse for himself as the greedy, covetous, ambitious tradesman that would say that he only deals in lawful business. For, as a Christian is not only required to be honest, but to be of a Christian spirit, and make his life an exercise of humility, repentance, and heavenly affection, so all tempers that are contrary to these are as contrary to Christianity as cheating is contrary to honesty.
~William Law~

The greatest fool of all is the man who fools himself.
~Unknown~
*
I’m not ugly, but my beauty is a total creation.
~Tyra Banks~
*
…Too late came I to love thee, O thou Beauty so ancient and so fresh, yea too late came I to love thee. And behold, thou wert within me, and I out of myself, where I made search for thee: I ugly rushed headlong upon those beautiful things thou hast made. Thou indeed wert with me; but I was not with thee: these beauties kept me far enough from thee: even those, which unless they were in thee, should not be at all.
~St. Augustine~

    >Önemli adamların söylediği güzel sözleri içeren bir başka site de Brainy Quotes.Benim de en sevdiklerimden biri bir Afrika atasözüdür: “Sular yükselince, balıklar karıncaları yer… Sular çekilince de karıncalar balıkları yer… Kimse bugünkü üstünlüğüne ve gücüne güvenmesin.. Çünkü kimin kimi yiyeceğine ‘suyun akışı’ karar verir…”Kaynak: Pigmelerle Dans Eden
