Harriet Auber Quote
Our Blest Redeemer, ere He breathed
Our Blest Redeemer, ere He breathed (Baptist Hymn Book, Psalms and Hymns Trust, London, 1962)
“I'm going to write a book someday and the title will be I'm an Ass, You're an Ass. That's the most liberating, wonderful thing in the world, when you openly admit you're an ass. It's wonderful. When people tell me, You're wrong I say, What can you expect of an ass?”
―Anthony de Mello

Quote of the day
“You can go through your whole life telling yourself that life is logical, life is prosaic, life is sane. Above all, sane. And I think it is. I've had a lot of time to think about that.”
