“Prepare as follows: sweeten with smiles according to variety. The sour, bitter kind are improved by a pinch of salt of common sense. Spice with patience. Wrap well in a mantle of Charity.

The Book of Practicus 12:1-3
I gave you brains, the ability to reason, and free will for a reason. Please use them.
The Book of Anomous 12:1-3
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the Dear God who loveth us
He made and loveth all.
The Book of Francis 12:1-3
“Little things that run and quail
and die in silence and despair.
little things that fight and fail
and fall on earth and sea and air.
All trapped and frightened little things,
the mouse, the rabbit – hear our prayer.
As we forgive those done to us,
the lamb, the tiniest bird
Forgive us all our trespasses,
little creatures everywhere.” author unknown.
