Convictions

”In religion, the things about which men agree are apt to be the things that are least worth holding, the really important things are the things about which men will fight.” –J.G. Machen

 

Convictions

George Norris, a Senator from Nebraska, after making a very unpopular decision in the view of his constituents, stated: “I would rather lie in the silent grave, remembered by both friends and enemies as one who remained true to his faith and who never faltered in what he believed to be his duty, than to still live, old and aged, lacking the confidence of both factions.” –John F. Kennedy
