Meandering about . . .

Today is the birthday of Archibald Joseph Cronin (July 19, 1896 – January 6, 1981), physician and novelist.

"The virtue of all achievement is victory over oneself. Those who know this can never know defeat." - A. J. Cronin

"Above all am I convinced of the need, irrevocable and inescapable, of every human heart, for God. No matter how we try to escape, to lose ourselves in restless seeking, we cannot separate ourselves from our divine source. There is no substitute for God." - A. J. Cronin

"Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, God will open a door for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us." - A. J. Cronin

"Nothing is more limiting than a closed circle of acquaintanceship where every avenue of conversation has been explored and social exchanges are fixed in a known routine."- A. J. Cronin

"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength." - A. J. Cronin

"Hell is the place where one has ceased to hope."- A. J. Cronin
