Finding rest, providing rest...

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.  ...
Trust in him at all times, O People; pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge. - Psalm 62:5,8 


"We find rest in those we love,
and we provide a resting place
for those who love us."

"There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge - That is curiosity.
There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others -That is vanity.
There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve - That is love." - St Bernard
