There is nothing so powerful as truth — and often nothing so strange.
~Daniel Webster, “Argument on the murder of Captain White” (6 April 1830), as reported in The Works of Daniel Webster, volume vi (1851), edited by Edward Everett, volume vi
78. I have lived my life, and I have fought my battles, not against the weak and the poor—anybody can do that—but against power, against injustice, against oppression, and I have asked no odds from them, and I never shall.
~Clarence S. Darrow, defense against charge of jury bribing in McNamara Case, 1912, in Attorney for the Damned 491, 497 (Arthur Weinberg ed. 1957)
Give and Forgive
Give and forgive,
Let wounds be healed;
Through Jesus’ blood
Your soul is sealed.
#JesusSaves #give #forgive #poetry
You can’t go long
With massive debt;
Will start with threats.
Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.”
Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
Be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave you because of Christ.
