Quote Left There is no virtue so truly great and godlike as Justice. Most of the other virtues are the virtues of created Beings, or accommodated to our nature as we are men. Justice is that which is practised by God himself, and to be practised in its perfection by none but him. Omniscience and Omnipotence are requisite for the full exertion of it. The one, to discover every degree of uprightness or iniquity in thoughts, words and actions. The other, to measure out and impart suitable rewards and punishments. As to be perfectly just is an attribute in the divine nature, to be so to the utmost of our abilities is the glory of a man. Such an one who has the publick administration in his hands, acts like the representative of his Maker, in recompencing the virtuous, and punishing the offender. Quote Right

Quote Left If, for instance, they have heard something from the postman, they attribute it to a semi-official statement; if they have fallen into conversation with a stranger at a bar, they can conscientiously describe him as a source that has hitherto proved unimpeachable. It is only when the journalist is reporting a whim of his own, and one to which he attaches minor importance, that he defines it as the opinion of well-informed circles. Quote Right
Quote Left Both the Moral Majority, who are recycling medieval language to explain AIDS, and those ultra-leftists who attribute AIDS to some sort of conspiracy, have a clearly political analysis of the epidemic. But even if one attributes its cause to a microorganism rather than the wrath of God, or the workings of the CIA, it is clear that the way in which AIDS has been perceived, conceptualized, imagined, researched and financed makes this the most political of diseases. Quote Right

Quote Left Truth manifested itself and expresses its attributes through creation and created a playing field for things to exist without offering never ending assistance to exist. The same way we have legs to walk on our own, hands to grab, etc., the universe is the same for the body of all which exist. No religion can explain this governing Truth except through simple terms. The truth will reveal itself at an appropriate time, nothing can change The Will of Truth. Quote Right

Quote Left People often attribute crying as a weakness within someone, but I think it is the very opposite. I think it is the strongest thing someone could do in front of another; to reveal that you have had to be strong for so long, and that you can no longer continue to stand to suffer anymore, and to allow another person to hold you tight in a moment of "weakness" is the strongest thing a person could ever do. Its trusting someone else to accept you for all your true colors, and still love you anyway. Quote Right
