“Do not grieve over temptations you suffer. When the Lord intends to bestow a particular virtue on us, He often permits us first to be tempted by the opposite vice. Therefore, look upon every temptation as an invitation to grown in a particular virtue and a promise by God that you will be successful, if only you stand fast.” ― St. Philip Neri
” Credinta si ratiunea sunt ca doua aripi cu care spiritul uman se ridica spre contemplarea adevarului. Dumnezeu este cel care a pus in inima omului dorinta de a cunoaste adevarul si, in definitiv, de a-l cunoaste pe El pentru ca astfel, cunoscundu-l si iubindu-l, sa poata ajunge la adevarul intreg despre sine insusi.”
Papa Ioan al II-lea (Fides et ratio, 1; 14 septembrie 1998)
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
“I don’t want to be a genius-I have enough problems just trying to be a man.”
” The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.” Albert Einstein
“Vines will be planted, corn will spring up, a whole growth of new crops; and people will still fall in love in vintages and harvests yet to come. Life is eternal; it is a perpetual renewal of birth and growth.”
“A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
A short note about # In the Berkshires, if the Boston Symphony Orchestra has cancelled their shows this summer at Tanglewood, a bunch of places remain closed this year. Kripalu – famous yoga center and few good restaurants from Lenox, Lee MA.
As for me I was hopping to see John Legend performance in August at…, Tanglewood.
Backstreet Boys got cancelled in Saratoga, NY. Other than this, all good.
Still tulips season.
