Quotes on GOD




A picket frozen on duty --

   A mother starved for her brood --

Socrates drinking the hemlock,

  And Jesus on the rood;

And millions who, humble and nameless,

  The strait hard pathway trod--

Some call it Consecration,

  And others call it GOD.


                                          -W.H.CARRUTH, Evolution

There are five reasons we should drink ;

Good wine --a friend-- or being dry--

Or lest we should be by and  by--

Or any other reason why.
