Five great enemies to peace inhabit us:avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride. I those enemies were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

To do the useful thing, to say the courageous thing, to contemplate the beautiful thing: that is enough for one man’s life

— T.S. Eliot

Order your soul; reduces your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.

— Saint Augustine
