Quaker Wisdom for Today

It appears to me to be one important means of helping the human mind in a healthy state, that in recreations which are needful for it, it should be trained as much as possible to look to those things that bring profit as well as pleasure with them. ... Surely He who formed the ear and the heart would not have given these tastes and powers without some purpose for them.

-- Elizabeth Fry (1833)
