Cool Quotes.

Here's a few awesome quotes.

"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither."~ C.S. Lewis

"God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."~   C.S. Lewis

Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. ~ C.S. Lewis

"All that we do without offering it to God is wasted,"~ Jean-Marie Vianney

I do not love the bright sword for it’s sharpness, nor the arrow for it’s swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

The Saxon is not like us Normans, His manners are not so polite.
But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow with his sullen set eyes on your own,
And grumbles, "This isn't fair dealings," my son, leave the Saxon alone. ~ Rudyard Kipling

"...the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. [...] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists." ~ Pope Pius X (awesome quote)

Mum showed me the Saxons and Normans quote one days when I was feeling grumpy and very low, she certainly knows how to cheer up someone. Thanks Mum!!!
May your Sword Stay Sharp,
