All your losses will be made up to
you in the resurrection, provided
you continue faithful.
Never be discouraged. If I were

immaterial matter. All spirit is
matter, but is more fine or pure,
and can only be discerned by purer

Angel of Fredericksburg
"General, I can't stand this," said
Sergeant Richard Kirkland.
The general replied, “don't you
know that you would get a bullet
through your head the moment you
stepped over the wall?”
I know that I may, but if you will
let me, I am willing to try it.
Whether or not those were the
actual words of the now famous
“Angel of Fredericksburg,” valiant
was his act of mercy in carrying
canteens of water to the wounded
who lay across the battlefield. His
title comes from an actual event of
bravery, never to be forgotten, for
he risked his life to relieve the
suffering of others.
Words of Mother Teresa

Eyewitness sightings of living
pterosaurs in the United States of

nonfiction cryptozoology book.

the road . . . the size was much
too large to be any bat I have
ever seen . . . 6-10 feet across.’”

plants and animals as that of his
fellow men, and when he devotes
himself helpfully to all life that is
in need of help.

Words of Albert Einstein
A man should look for what is, and
not for what he thinks should be.
Any man who reads too much and
uses his own brain too little falls
into lazy habits of thinking.
Anyone who doesn't take truth
seriously in small matters cannot
be trusted in large ones either.

Diplomats are just as essential to
starting a war as soldiers are for
finishing it... You take diplomacy
out of war, and the thing would
fall flat in a week.
