April 1

Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him. — Prov 26:12

God’s April is coming up the hill, and the noisy winds are quieting down, subdued by the fragrance of the wild flowers on the way. Lest we miss the richness of life, while pursuing the world, God continues to pour out precious fragrance from his storehouse, and unconsciously, our souls are lulled to peace through the sweetness of April days.
— M.B.S.

It is a peculiar quality of a fool to perceive the faults of others, and to forget his own.
— Cicero.

A man may be as much a fool from the want of sensibility as the want of sense.
— Mrs. Jameson.

He that knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool: shun him.
— Arabian Maxim.


Almighty God, grant that I may be spared the allurements of deceptive happiness which leaves weary days. I ask for wisdom that I may not speak foolishly, think foolishly, or act foolishly; and may I not be detained by the foolishness of others, but pursue my work, whether it be far or near. Amen.
