When God loves a creature, he wants the creature to know the highest happiness and the deepest misery. He wants him to know all that being alive can bring. That is his best gift. There is no happiness save in understanding the whole.
——- Thornton Wilder
Don’t let your special character and values, the secret that you know and no one else does, the truth – don’t let that get swallowed up by the great chewing complacency.
In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes
——– John Ruskin
