Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.

in a bad neighborhood.

Love thy neighbor,
even when he plays the trombone.

Jewish proverb

Faith without consequences is a lie.
God does not need our sacrifices
but has, nevertheless, appointed a representative to receive them,
namely our neighbor.
The neighbor always represents the invisible Christ.

J.S. Whale

When asked what a person should do when they felt the onset of a nervous breakdown, Dr. Karl Menninger replied:

“Lock up your house,
go across the railroad tracks,
find someone in need,
and do something for them.”
