Only the great practice this

God is God, Lord, and All-mighty — but He still humbles himself, takes the form of a servant, and asks us, “What do you want me to do for you?” He seeks to meet our needs, even though He is greater than us. Contrary to the way of the world, where the greatest are served [...]

Maybe

Maybe that person is not thinking evil of you. Maybe your friend didn’t greet you in the hallway because her mind was really elsewhere. Maybe your wife/husband is right, after all.

This must be one of the kings of comebacks in a debate, ever. Lesson: There’s always a way to [...]

No stopping them

When a man is determined, what can stop him?  Cripple him and you have a SIR WALTER SCOTT; put him in a prison cell and you have a JOHN BUNYAN; bury him in the snows of Valley Forge and you have a GEORGE WASHINGTON. Have him born in abject poverty and you have a LINCOLN. [...]

Agree to disagree

Have you ever had to “agree to disagree” with someone? If you have, you know it’s a pain. I do. It’s not easy.
