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

Quotes on GLORY



The nearest way to glory is to strive to be what you wish to be thought to be.


                                          -SOCRATES ( Quoted by Cicero )
