Make no friendship with a man that is given to anger; And with a wrathful man thou shalt not go. — Prov 22:24

Hast thou named all the birds without a gun?
Loved the wild rose, and left it on the stalk?
At rich men’s tables eaten bread and pulse?
Unarmed faced danger with a heart of trust?
And loved so well a high behavior,
In man or maid, that thou from speech refrained,
Nobility more noble to repay?
O, be my friend and teach me to be thine!
— Ralph Waldo Emerson.

What the superior man seeks is in himself;
What the small man seeks is in others.
— Confucius.


Lord God, may I live for the pure and upright, and have the blessedness of a rejoicing heart. May I yearn for the secrets of nature. Grant that my life may not seek destruction, but tenderly find and protect life. Amen.
