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

Nimes to Beaucaire

Van Gogh's sunflowers

Cooling off at a canal

These lads took an interest in the walk and donated a euro. I accepted.

The local lads playing the popular game of boules

Like the Spanish, the Southern French  like a good running of the bulls

Beaucaire from the balcony

The Rhone

Where host Didier and I parted after he walked with me for an hour
