A Quote by Saitn Elizabeth the New Martyr on god, love, nieghbors, fire, cultivation, growth, peace, spirituality, souls, and spirit

It is easier for feeble straw to resist a mighty fire than for the nature of sin to resist the power of love.  We must cultivate this love in our souls, that we may take our place with all the saints.  For through their love for their nieghbor, they were all pleasing to God.

Saint Elizabeth the New Martyr

I hold no preference among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses!  Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!
