thinking and acting

found this quote from Georges Bernanos . i read something Robert Coles said about him and knew nothing of Bernanos so i 'googled' him. Coles seemed to be intrigued by the irony and ambiguity of his life. i'm not sure about all that but i loved this quote:

"A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all."

some others i liked...

"The first sign of corruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means."

"The modern state no longer has anything but rights; it does not recognize duties any more."

"The wish to pray is a prayer in itself. God can ask no more than that of us."

"Truth is meant to save you first, and the comfort comes afterward."
