J.B. Phillips

“If words are to enter men's minds and bear fruit, they must be the right words shaped cunningly to pass men's defenses and explode silently and effectually within their minds.”
J.B. Phillips

“You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern.”
