“It is said that the offender never forgives. Certainly it is quite explicitly hard for the one in the wrong to do so. And it takes more spiritual asset than continued alcohol often leaves.”

“We earn what we get — most of us — and, sweet heaven help us! we get it. God does not always pay on Saturday — but He Pays.”
“Your true cosmopolitan is born, not made. He is very rare.”
Louise Jordan Miln, U.S. writer
(1864 - 1933)
