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

To Verona!

On the way to Verona, these fruit vendors loaded me up with fruit; I had to turn some of it down because of the weight!

My first view of the center of Verona; a Romeo and Juliet walk along the river

My host in Verona, Evi, from Latvia

Evi and a friend of ours, Giovanna, who took us out for ice cream

An odd, lifelike statue
