A Quote by Ellen Glasgow on anger, animals, dogs, life, people, pleasure, and profit

. . . this rage - I have never forgotten it - contained every anger, every revolt I had ever felt in my life - the way I felt when I saw the black dog hunted, the way I felt when I watched old Uncle Henry taken away to the almshouse, the way I felt whenever I had seen people or animals hurt for the pleasure or profit of others.

A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on business, friendship, interest, love, men, profit, and self-love

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)

A Quote by David Oman McKay on authority, guidance, meditation, profit, spirituality, and worship

In our worship there are two elements; one is spiritual communion arising from our own meditation; the other, instruction from others, particularly from those who have authority to guide and instruct us. Of the two, the more profitable introspectively is meditation.
