Today my quotations are from the English Quaker who founded  Pennsylvania, Mr. William Penn.

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.  ~ William Penn, English religious leader and colonist (1644 – 1718)

A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it. ~William Penn

 The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves. ~  William Penn

Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it. ~ William Penn

“A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.” ~ William Penn
