Despair Quotes

Let us not be deceived we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to be found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart of their success.

Dating from Easter, life took on a newness which made it a different kind of life not known before - life that will not be content until all the world comes alive.

Cowardice is death, and cowardice ceased to be a part of those who knew Easter.
