I was inspired to create this post based on a quote found on a fellow WordPress blogger’s website. Her quote was so profound, I think it should become a world-wide statement. Perhaps you’ll help me achieve that for her and share with others. I’ll add to it when I find further inspiring quotes.

Behold, at that time
I will deal with all them that afflict thee;
And I will save her that is lame,
And gather her that was driven away;
And I will make them to be a praise and a name,
Whose shame hath been in all the earth.


– Zephaniah 3:19; JPS, 1917.



matzati et she’ahavah nafshi


for love is as strong as death,
   its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
   like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
   rivers cannot sweep it away.
– Excerpts, from Song of Songs, which is of Solomon. Version translation by New International Version (NIV).



The initial value of their investment, Vi, is only a few years of youth but the final value, Vf, is a life of luxury.
