  4. To have faith is to go up the first step, even when you do not see the whole staircase.

  5. God has both arms extended. One is strong enough to surround us with justice, the other is gentle enough to surround us with grace.

  7. He who accepts evil without struggling against him cooperates with him.

  8. What frightens me is not the oppression of the wicked, but the indifference of the good.

  9. Darkness can not drive out darkness; only light can. Hatred can not drive away hatred; only love can do that.
