QUOTE (William Shakespeare)

April 23, 2016

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man know himself to be a fool.”
~ William Shakespeare, As You Like It

“God shall be my hope, my stay, my guide and lantern to my feet.”
~ William Shakespeare, Henry V 

“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.”
~ William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

 “Now, God be praised, that to believing souls give light to darkness, comfort in despair.”
~ William Shakespeare, King Henry VI

ShakespeareTo be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil.
~ William Shakespeare, Hamlet

In honor of William Shakespeare, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language, who is believed to have died on this day in 1616.

QUOTE (Joseph E. Murray)

April 1, 2016
Joseph_Murray“One truth is revealed truth, the other is scientific truth. If you really believe that creation is good, there can be no harm in studying science. The more we learn about creation — the way it emerged — it just adds to the glory of God. Personally, I’ve never seen a conflict.”

“We’re just working with the tools God gave us. There is no reason that science and religion have to operate in an adversarial relationship. Both come from the same source, the only source of truth — the Creator.”

“I think the important thing to realize is how little we know about anything — how flowers unfold, how butterflies migrate. We have to avoid the arrogance of persons on either side of the science-religion divide who feel that they have all the answers. We have to try to use our intellect with humility.”


“Work is a prayer, and I start off every morning dedicating it to our Creator. Every day is a prayer — I feel that, and I feel that very strongly.”

In honor of Dr. Joseph Murray, a Noble Prize winning transplant surgeon, who was born on this day in 1919.

QUOTE (Alfred Edersheim)

March 16, 2016

Alfred_Edersheim“So true is it that all sin is ultimately against the Lord; so bitter is the root of self; and so terrible the power of evil in its constantly growing strength, till it casts out all fear of God or care for man.”

“The absolutely highest stage of intercourse with God is the indwelling of the Holy Ghost in the New Testament Church, when man’s individuality is not superseded nor suppressed, but transformed, and thus conformed to Him in spiritual fellowship.”
~ Alfred Edersheim

In honor of Alfred Edersheim, an Austrian Biblical scholar and author,  who died on this day in 1889.

A_solzhenitsin“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
