Power that never abates.

Always smiling on the ‘inside’.

Human motivation that ‘builds’.

Mutual caresses between ‘man’ and Spirit.

Espousal of moderation and considerateness.

  • Perhaps one virtue begets another.
  • Perhaps ‘good’ acts are candy for the soul.
  • Perhaps the energy in a conscientious heart is limitless.
  • Perhaps only the virtuous can be optimistic about their fate.
  • Perhaps only the human heart recognizes the path to ecstasy.
  • Perhaps the road to happiness is truly paved with good intentions.
  • Perhaps the only ‘substance’ that can truly be transformed abides in you.
  • Perhaps eschewing principles has left many searching fruitlessly for purpose and direction.
  • Perhaps to be a ‘saint’ one must embrace altruism which is constantly rewarded with transcendent moments.
  • Perhaps we feel virtuous when experiencing peaceful trust in the ultimate meaningfulness of our thoughts and actions.
