Quote/s of the Day – 26 October – The Memorial of St Alfred the Great (849-899) King
“For in prosperity,
a man is often puffed up with pride,
whereas tribulations chastens
and humbles him through suffering and sorrow.
In the midst of prosperity,
the mind is elated,
and in prosperity.
a man forgets himself.
In hardship, he is forced to reflect on himself,
even though he be unwilling.
In prosperity, a man often destroys
the good he has done.
he often repairs what he long since did
in the way of wickedness.”
“He seemed to me,
a very foolish man
and very wretched,
who will not increase
while he is in the world
and ever with
and long to reach
that endless life,
where all shall be made clear.”
“The saddest thing about any man,
is that he be ignorant
and the most exciting thing.
is that he knows it!”
“Ah, what shall I be at fifty,
should nature keep me alive,
if I find the world so bitter
when I am but twenty-five?”
“One God, one law, one element,
And one far-off divine event,
To which the whole creation moves.”
St Alfred the Great (849-899)
