Time draweth wrinkles in a fair face, but addeth fresh colors to a fast friend, which neither heat, nor cold, nor misery, nor place, nor destiny, can alter or diminish.

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on day, facts, grief, life, misery, reflection, suffering, and thinking

Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.

Jack Lewis (1898 - 1963)

A Quote by J. Reuben Clark, Jr. on belief, chastity, civilization, concern, death, debauchery, destruction, disease, friendship, life, love, misery, nations, parenthood, past, people, salvation, shame, soul, present, trust, women, and worth

Chastity is fundamental to civilization. If the race becomes unchaste, it will perish. Immorality has been basic to the destruction of mighty nations in the past. It will bring to dust the mighty nations of the present. You young people, may I directly entreat you to be chaste? Please believe me when I say that chastity is worth more than life itself. This is the doctrine my parents taught me; it is true. Better die chaste than live unchaste. The salvation of your very soul is concerned in this. I ask you to believe me whenever a man or woman, young or old, demands as the price of his friendship that you give up the righteous standards of your life, or any of them, that man's friendship is not worth the price he asks. You may not trust that friendship. He will cast it off as he does his worn out coat. Friendship is not now, and never was, the offspring of debauchery or unrighteousness. I ask you young women to believe me further when I say that any young man who demands your chastity as the price of his love is spiritually unclean, and is offering something that is not worth the purchase price. His love will turn to ashes under your touch; it will lead you to misery and shame, and too often, it will curse you with dread disease.

A Quote by Thomas Henry Huxley on duty, ignorance, influence, misery, and world

We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat less ignorant than it was before he entered it.
