Lloyd Irving Bradbury VICTORY... My Painting

Nature made us individuals, as she did the flowers and the pebbles; but we are afraid to be peculiar, and so our society resembles a bag of marbles, or a string of mold candles. Why should we all dress after the same fashion? The frost never paints my windows twice alike.

Love is not self denial. Love is not blood and suffering. Love is not murdering your son to appease your own vanity. Love is not hatred or wrath, consigning billions of people to eternal torture because they have offended your ego or disobeyed your rules. Love is not obedience, conformity, or submission. It is a counterfeit love that is contingent upon authority, punishment, or reward. True love is respect and admiration, compassion and kindness, freely given by a healthy, unafraid human being.

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ~

A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.
A great fortune is a great slavery.
A large part of mankind is angry not with the sins, but with the sinners.
A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.
A person's fears are lighter when the danger is at hand.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand.
As long as you live, keep learning how to live.[24]
