Do not underestimate your ability.
- Geshe Chekawa, "In Advice From a Spiritual Friend"
In the hour of grief you turn to Him; when grief departs you transgress. In adversity you moan entreating Him; when ease returns you turn away. Those who know God remain steady, but those who doubt exult at times and become despondent at others.
One act of obedience is better than one hundred sermons.
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Man never acts in a manner more resembling God than when he bestows benefits.
- Philo, Special Laws
