Thought for the week: Hope is the fuel of patience.


Peace be to you. Fear not, the price of wisdom is above rubies. Keep thy tongue from evil and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil and do well. Seek peace and pursue it. They that sow in tears shall reap joy. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
