...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

When you feel a peaceful joy, that's when you are near truth.
~ Rumi


Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.
~Dalai Lama XIV


We only have what we give.
~Isabel Allende


That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
~Simone de Beauvoir


Speak only when your words are more
beautiful than silence.
~ Hz. Ali


When you’re anxious or worried, be patient. The key of patience opens the door of happiness.
~ Rumi


Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.
~Henri J.M. Nouwen
