Holiness, not happiness, is the chief end of man.
The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ.
Certain things can only be dealt with by ignoring them; if you face them you increase their power. It is absurd to say, Pray about them; when once a thing is seen to be wrong, don't pray about it, it fixes the mind on it; never for a second brood on it, destroy it by neglect.

If you neglect your work, you will dislike it; if you do it well, you will enjoy it
Sir Philip Sidney
