States, or anywhere else. No cause justifies violence as long
as the system provides for change by peaceful means.”

“A man who has never lost himself in a cause bigger than himself has
missed one of life's mountaintop experiences. Only in losing himself does
he find himself. Only then does he discover all the latent strengths he
never knew he had and which otherwise would have remained dormant.”

“Until he has been part of a cause larger
than himself, no man is truly whole.”

his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it." ~ Mark 8:35

“To a crisis of the spirit, we need an answer of the spirit.
To find that answer, we need only look within ourselves. When we listen
to the better angels of our nature, we find that they celebrate the simple
things, the basic things--such as goodness, decency, love, kindness.
Greatness comes in simple trappings.”

“I don't mind the homosexuality. I understand it. Nevertheless, goddamn,
I don't think you glorify it on public television, homosexuality, even more
than you glorify whores. We all know we have weaknesses. But,
goddammit, what do you think that does to kids? You know what
happened to the Greeks! Homosexuality destroyed them. Sure,
Aristotle was a homo. We all know that. So was Socrates.”

God, of course, is the greatest philosopher of all.

is not a philosopher as He is the creator of all, including all truth.
Shame on all who simplify and or trivialize the majesty of God.

are complete in Him, who is the head ... ~ Colossians 2:9-10

mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. ~ Jude 1:16

I can give a little advice from time to time.”

secretaries, have written that he was deeply hurt by what was said about

strength of character never to display it, always able to stand tall and
strong and firm no matter how harsh or unfair the criticism might be.
These elements of greatness, of course, inspire us all today.”

... knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and
perseverance, character; and character, hope. ~ Romans 5:3-4

Endurance is insight into our nature of spiritual revival

For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God,
you may receive the promise: ... ~ Hebrews 10:36

“Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve.
Find another way. And don't pray when it rains
if you don't pray when the sun shines.”

When we encounter tough times, endurance can be on the edge
of panic. Hearts beat and nerves stretch. It is incredible that during
these stressful times our greatest character traits either shine or
pale under the strain. With vision strength is established with control
where those without much knowledge crumble at the first whine.
Tested to reveal mettle, it is no wonder we are made to reflect
a higher essence in His light where He waits.

“You must never give up. You must remember that you have to take
risks in order to achieve anything and sometimes you will suffer defeat.

petty. Always remember, others may hate you. But those who hate you
don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.”

     → Others may hate you
           ⮡  They win if you hate them
                  ⮡  Then you destroy yourself

destroy and where thieves break in and steal; ..." ~ Matthew 6:19-21

“If we succeed, it will not be because of what we have,
but it will be because of what we are; not because of what we own,
but, rather because of what we believe.”

History proves out that humanity has always been led by those
ruling from the shadows whether seen or not. If our character
is hopelessness, those that oppress us have won the battle in
defeating the minds of all that would be free. Trapped as ignorance
is consumed monumentally as truth’s candy; darkness is its’ color.
Opinion guides the blind where reflections of reality are the shadows
of all our troubles, real or imagined. A higher sight rises where the
clouds lift us in to His presence. If our hearts find faith exalted above
our heavy loads, a glimpse of freedom’s sweet taste remains.
Rejoice for all that treasure this timelessness.

... And how does a wise man die? As the fool! ~ Ecclesiastes 2:16

For in death there is no remembrance of You;
In the grave who will give You thanks? ~ Psalms 6:5

The dead do not praise the LORD, Nor any who go down into silence.
~ Psalms 115:17

When unrighteous turns righteous glory rules
In this world fear plagues all peace
The greatest test of faith comes to free spirits
Corrupt leadership creates a hostile people
Violence consumes those who perpetuate it
Only by submitting to God is one made whole
Power’s greatest abuse is lack of character
Wars among men are fought for greed, not for God
Schizophrenia is symptomatic of insecure paranoids
Fools speak what wisdom does not declare
God is more than man can explain
Endurance is the character of greatness
Hate is murder of the self
Faith supersedes all that is material

Freedom comes to those who truly believe.

Genuine magnificence comes with no tricks

Darkness has an insidious silence.
