...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

"Were I to be the founder of a new sect, I would call them Apiarians, and, after the example of the bee, advise them to extract the honey of every sect."
- Thomas Jefferson
We don’t need any sort of religious orientation to lead a life that is ethical, compassionate & kind.
Live a good life. More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.
Make no judgments where you have no compassion.
There are so many ways of being despicable it quite makes one’s head spin. But the way to be really despicable is to be contemptuous of other people’s pain."
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
~ Khalil Gibran
While the mind sees only boundaries, Love knows the secret way there.
I love you neither with my heart nor with my mind.
