Guilt



“Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do.”
― Voltaire

"Jesus died to forgive our sins. Dare we make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing them?"
Jules Feiffer

Wisdom

What is wisdom?  Is it something we get with old age? Experience? Enlightenment?

"A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study. "  ~ Chinese Proverb

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius

“Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.“   ~ Doug Larson

Sin



“When you are guilty, it is not your sins you hate but yourself.”
― Anthony de Mello, One Minute Wisdom

“Almost every sinful action ever committed can be traced back to a selfish motive.
It is a trait we hate in other people but justify in ourselves. ”
― Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare
