Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.

~ Isa 26:3

How comes it to pass, then, that we appear such cowards in reasoning, and are so afraid to stand the test of ridicule?
~ Earl of Shaftesbury

He that of such a height hath built his mind,  
And reared the dwelling of his thoughts so strong,  
As neither fear nor hope can shake the frame  
Of his resolved powers; nor all the wind  
Of vanity or malice pierce to wrong  
His settled peace, or to disturb the same:  
What a fair seat hath he, from whence he may  
The boundless wastes and wilds of man survey?
– Samuel Daniel

O Lord, it is not that I am ashamed to ask thee for the truth that I do not more diligently seek it, but it is because I fear the sacrifice that may follow in obtaining it. I would that I could understand that thy strength is given in the sacrifice. Make me braver as I seek to live in the truth. Amen.
