Benjamin Franklin once said:
"The way to be safe is to never be secure."
(I take this quote from Ben...we're buddies!!!...as a spiritual/governmental statement...Just like Jesus said in 1 Peter 5:8,9: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world." We must never let our guards down and be prideful, we must always know we have an enemy that wants to destroy our hearts. A part of being safe comes from knowing the enemy is out there and being on guard against any and all attacks." Go Ben!)
"He that would live in peace & at ease, Must not speak all he knows, nor judge all he sees."
"He that can compose himself, is wiser than he that composes books."
"Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing."
"Wink at small faults; remember thou hast great ones."
"They that won't be counselled, can't be helped."
"Whate'ers begun in anger ends in shame."
