This it was which saved him from death beneath the iron muscles and tearing fangs of Terkoz.Edgar Rice Burroughs

There is in Shaw , as in Gurdjieff and Nietzsche , a recognition of the immense effort of Will that is necessary to express even a little freedom, that places them beside Pascal and St. Augustine as religious thinkers.

Never try to save out of God's cause; such money will canker the rest. Giving to God is no loss; it is putting your substance in the best bank. Giving is true having, as the old gravestone said of the dead man: "What I spent I had, what I saved I lost, what I gave I have."
