Apart from Christ we know neither what our life nor our death is; we do not know what God is nor what we ourselves are.
Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
The New International Version
An advisor of President Lincoln suggested a certain candidate for the Lincoln cabinet. Lincoln refused, saying, “I don’t like the man’s face.” “But, sir, he can’t be responsible for his face,” insisted his advisor. “Every man over forty is responsible for his face,” replied Lincoln, and the subject was dropped.
