A quote of my grandma... almost everyday!
Glory to God for all things
What is written in the picture?


Glory to God for all things

This will be my best quote all the time
It is the final words of St. John Chrysostom.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
