Isn’t it interesting that many of those who worship at the altar of tolerance are among the most intolerant?

As a young teacher I wanted to feel needed by my students. Now I want them to feel they can do it themselves.

As the beauty of a flower pleases the eye, so an act of love pleases the Father.
