The greatest attribute of Heaven is mercy.
Francis Beaumont (1584 - 1616)

The true way to gain much, is never to desire to gain too much. He is not rich that possesses much, but he that covets no more; and he is not poor that enjoys little, but he that wants too much.
Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop about on earth, she will never fly to heaven. But when both are joined together, then doth the soul mount up to her eternal rest.
Honor's a thing too subtle for wisdom; if honor lie in eating, he's right honorable.
Our lives are but our marches to the grave.
