Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.

your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.

that knows not victory or defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt

what comes back to you from them.

As human beings, our greatness lies
not so much in being able to remake the world -
as in being able to remake ourselves.

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do...
but how much love we put in that action.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi
