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

Thanks for the Help!

Back in the beginning of April, when I was down to some 30 euros, I asked for help. A month later, I have received enough help to get me through another 8-10 weeks, barring an unexpected expense. So special thanks to Hugo and Kelly in Almeria, my old friend Jon from Australia, Nikki, AlĂ­cia and Patricia in Tarragona, and most recently Friend Laura in Montana. Special thanks also to Conrad Lindes and Winona Monthly Meeting/ Ohio Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends for helping me out as they did. And of course, thanks to everyone else; to all those who help me along day by day!
