QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“The feeling of being, or not being, forgiven and loved, is not what matters. One must come down to brass tacks. If there is a particular sin on your conscience, repent and confess it. If there isn’t, tell the despondent devil not to be silly.”
Letter to Mary Willis Shelburne 7/21/1958
