Quotation of the Week
They should direct their anger at themselves.
For evil in the open is but evil from within that has been let out.
The main battlefield for good is not the open ground of the public arena but the small clearing of each heart.
Meanwhile, the lot of widows and homeless children is very hard,
and it is to their defence, not God’s that the self-righteous should rush.”
-- Yann Martel, Life of Pi
= Available at Sembach Library
