“This is what you shall do: love the earth and the sun, and animals; despise riches; give alms to everyone that asks; stand up for the stupid and crazy; devote your income and labor to others; hate tyrants; argue not concerning God; have patience and indulgence towards the people; take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men; go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families; read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life; re-examine all you have been told at school or church, or in any books; and dismiss whatever insults your soul.”  —  Walt Whitman

“Do your little bit of good where you are. It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”  —  Bishop Desmond Tutu

“Preach the gospel always, and if necessary use words.” —  Attributed to St. Francis of Assisi

    James is a great little book. I love that line, “you believe that God is one? You do well; the demons also believe, and tremble.”

    Belief alone gets you nowhere; it’s a Zen-like observation.

    From the Book of James, “Faith without works is dead.”
