Poison cures in certain contingencies, and in those cases poison is not an evil thing.

Jean Louis Guez de Balzac

Each day is a special gift from God, and while life may not always be fair, you must never allow the pains, hurdles, and handicaps of the moment to poison your attitude and plans for yourself and your future.

A new generation of Christians is being called to help build a world in which God's gift of life is welcomed, respected and cherished-not rejected, feared as a threat and destroyed. A new age in which love is not greedy or self-seeking, but pure, faithful and genuinely free, open to others, respectful of their dignity, seeking their good, radiating joy and beauty - a new age in which hope liberates us from the shallowness, apathy and self-absorption that deaden our souls and poison our relationships.

Pope Benedict XVI

John Cage

Vices enter into the composition of virtues as poison into that of medicines. Prudence collects and blends the two and renders them useful against the ills of life.

François de la Rochefoucauld

John Milton

A man writes to throw off the poison which he has accumulated because of his false way of life.

No man would set a word down on paper if he had the courage to live out what he believed in.

Henry Miller
