“The power of God is with you at all times; through the activities of mind, senses, breathing, and emotions; and is constantly doing all the work using you as a mere instrument.”
“Life—the way it really is—is a battle not between good and bad, but between bad and worse”
" For you was I born, for you do I have life, for you will I die, for you am I now dying"
