_Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report,–think on these things_.–PHIL. iv. 8.
As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.–PROV. xxiii. 7.

Still may Thy sweet mercy spread A shady arm above my head, About my paths; so shall I find The fair centre of my mind Thy temple, and those lovely walls Bright ever with a beam that falls Fresh from the pure glance of Thine eye, Lighting to eternity.
R. CRASHAW.
Make yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts. None of us yet know, for none of us have been taught in early youth, what fairy palaces we may build of beautiful thought–proof against all adversity. Bright fancies, satisfied memories, noble histories, faithful sayings, treasure–houses of precious and restful thoughts, which care cannot disturb, nor pain make gloomy, nor poverty take away from us,–houses built without hands, for our souls to live in.
J. RUSKIN.

  • “The world of demons, fallen Angels, is very real – a fact we need to know. We have to face up to this terrible reality, so that we do not fall unsuspectingly into their hands and come under their tyranny.” – Basilea Schlink
