William Penn

1644 - 1718

A Quote by William Penn on evil, force, forgiveness, good, information, and love

A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it. We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive or gain by love and information. Force may subdue, but love gains. And one that forgives first wins the laurel.

A Quote by William Penn on fatherhood and wisdom

He who is taught to live upon little owes more to his father's wisdom than he who has a great deal left him does to his father's care.
