A Quote by Albert Einstein on abuse, deed, humanity, imagination, jesus, money, nobility, purity, selfishness, wealth, and world

I am absolutely convinced that no amount of wealth in the world can help humanity move forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistably invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?

A Quote by Aimee Semple Mcpherson on cruelty, divinity, jesus, life, love, sacrifice, and selfishness

We are all making a crown for Jesus out of these daily lives of ours, either a crown of golden, divine love, studded with gems of sacrifice and adoration, or a thorny crown, filled with the cruel briars of unbelief, or selfishness, and sin...
