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

Torino, Italy

I walked into the city of 'The Shroud' and Juventus yesterday, and after an evening of homemade pizza and good company I'm looking forward to the next five days I hope to spend in Torino after the march from Nimes. From Nimes I first headed southeast to meet a friend, then north to head through the high Alps when his plans changed. I've met a lot of interesting people along the way, one of whom walked with me for four days through the highest part of this walk so far. Over the next few days I'll try to catch up with photographs of the walk until Torino.
