It does not flash, it glows."

By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can
As long as ever you can."
-- John Wesley --

Within is the fountain of good,
and it will ever bubble up if thou wilt ever dig."

not intention to act."

"Be on the side of the good old cause,
the oldest and best of all causes;
the cause of creation against destruction,
the cause of Yes against No,
the cause of the seed against the stony earth,
the star against the abyss."
