“EVERY GREAT LITERATURE has always been allegorical–allegorical of some view of the whole universe. The Iliad is only great because all life is a battle, The Odyssey because all life is a journey, The Book of Job because all life is a riddle.
— G. K. Chesterton
“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them—every day begin the task anew.”
Saint Francis de Sales
