“let your light so shine before men”
and yet: Take care that you hide it!
Sermon on the Mount
Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and he who wins souls is wise.
To respect something is to understand that there is something there to see,
that it is not all surface, that something lies beneath the surface, something that has the power to change the way we think or feel, something that may be so profound a revelation as to change not only how we look at our lives
but how we live them.
