Frederick the Great
“He who cannot stand misfortune does not deserve good fortune.”
Frederick the Great

Yukichi Fukuzawa
“We should mutually teach and learn from each other, without shame or pride.”
Yukichi Fukuzawa

“The greatest gift a church can receive is to have a group of families who take their responsibilities with such Christian seriousness that they are willing to completely alter their lifestyle to raise up disciples for Jesus Christ.”
Abraham Kuyper, attrib.

Rachel Carson
“I sincerely believe that for the child, and for the parent seeking to guide him, it is not half so important to know as to feel. If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow. The years of early childhood are the time to prepare the soil. Once the emotions have been aroused - a sense of the beautiful, the excitement of the new and unknown, a feeling of sympathy, pity, admiration or love - then we wish for knowledge about the object of our emotional response. Once found, it has lasting meaning. It is more important to pave the way for the child to want to know than to put him on a diet of facts he is not ready to assimilate.”
Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder

John Calvin
“When He orders you to forgive that man for whatever sin he has committed against you, He calls you to do so not because that man deserves it, but because God Himself has forgiven you (Luke 17:3–4).”
John Calvin, A Little Book on the Christian Life, Damask
