“We’re identifying now by our race, by our ethnic group. We’re separating ourselves and we live in different realities.” — Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.)

George Washington’s Rules of Civility

Written when he was just 14 years old, the rules were drawn from an English translation of a French book of maxims.

“When you see a crime punished, you may be inwardly pleased, but always show pity to the suffering offender.

“Let your discourse with men of business be short and comprehensive.”

“In speaking to men of quality, do not lean nor look to them full in the face, nor approach too near them at least keep a full pace from them.”
“In visiting the sick, do not presently play the physician if you be not knowing therein.”

“In writing or speaking, give every person his due title according to his degree and custom of the place”

Quotes by Mother Teresa

“Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it.”

“True love is love that causes us pain, that hurts and yet brings us joy. That is why we must pray to God and ask Him to give us the courage to love.”

“There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.”

“If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.”

“Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier.”
