"We find rest in those we love, and we provide a resting place in ourselves for those who love us.” St. Bernard of Clairvaux

"The solution to any problem you have in life is a way of life that makes the problem disappear." Wittgenstein

"Nature [God in fact] has given us a desire to discover the truth." Cicero

unexpected always happens." Disraeli

"Cameron should have resigned over Libya but I am glad he didn't or we might not have had Brexit." Me 6 years ago. Who now remembers David Cameron?
