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

How People Helped as I Walked to Brescia

Encouragement, and candy!

Thirty euros!!!

An ice-cold bottle of water

An offer for a place to stay with friends


Encouragement, and a photo

A cafè, water, and offers to eat at a restaurant and to stay overnight

A meal, company, ice cream at an ice cream parlour, and a place to stay from my Couchsurfing host in Brescia, Carlotta.
