Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“When a thoughtless or unkind word is spoken, best tune out. Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one’s ability to persuade.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, My Own Words

Abraham Joshua Heschel
“As long as man sees religion as a source of satisfaction for his own needs, it is not God whom he serves but his own self.”

It may indeed bring peace, but before it does so it must involve us in struggle. A “faith” that avoids this struggle is really a temptation against true faith.”
Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
