A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

Almendralejo

From Badajoz we worked our way east, camping one night, then spending the next night in Montijo with two very kind English teachers from America, Camille and Sylvia. We camped again a kilometer beyond Arroyo del San Serv├ín, and got very wet this morning stomping our way to Almendralejo. A very kind woman has invited us into her house to use the internet, and we're hoping afterwards to find a place to stay dry tonight. Tomorrow we set off for Zafra, where we should arrive in a day or two.
