A Quote by unknown on constitution, crisis, day, government, intention, power, solution, and temptation

A Quote by St. Gregory the Great on body, darkness, good, intention, mind, and work

Many things seem good and yet are not, because they be not done with a good mind and intention; and therefore our Saviour saith in the Gospel, "If thy eye has naught, all thy body shall be dark." For when the intention is wicked, all the work that follows is naught, although it seemed to be never so good.

St. Gregory the Great
