So, to praise others for their virtues - Can but encourage one's own efforts
Things derive their being and nature by mutual dependence and are nothing in themselves
Neither from itself nor from another,Nor from both,Nor without a cause,Does anything whatever, anywhere arise.
There is pleasure when a sore is scratched, But to be without sores is more pleasurable still. Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires, But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.
The Lord has turned all our sunsets into sunrise.
Clement of Alexandria
