'TIS SO TRUE
Fear of criticism is the kiss of death in the courtship of achievement.
But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled.
1 Peter 3:14-15
Your companions are like buttons on the elevator. They will either take you up or they will take you down.
Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals."
1 Corinthians 15:33
Quite often when a man thinks his mind is getting broader, it's only his conscience stretching.
To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.
