A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on appreciation, circumstances, day, deed, faults, forgiveness, friendship, generosity, sacrifice, sympathy, present, and time

There are many fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others.

Grenville Kleiser (1868 - 1953)

A Quote by G. A. Studdert Kennedy on cruelty, death, forgiveness, home, jesus, justice, men, pain, and soul

When Jesus came to Golgotha they hanged him on a tree, They drove great nails through hands and feet and made a Calvary; They crowned Him with a crown of thorns; red were his wounds, and deep, For those were crude and cruel days, and human flesh was cheap. When Jesus came to Birmingham they simply passed him by, They never hurt a hair of Him, they only let Him die; For men had grown more tender, and they would not give Him pain, They only just passed down the street, and left Him in the rain. Still Jesus cried, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do," And still it rained a wintry rain that drenched Him through and through; The crowds went home and left the streets without a soul to see, And Jesus crouched against a wall and cried for Calvary.

And now I send these pages forth, not knowing what shall befall them, but with the earnest prayer that they may be blessed to aid the cause of truth and righteousness, and that He in whose name they are written may, of His mercy, "Forgive them where they fail in truth, And in His wisdom make me wise."
