Extend a hand to the lonely

Monday, October 16, 2006

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him--a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
~ The Qoheleth (Ecc 4:9-12, ESV)

Little do men perceive what solitude is, and how far it extendeth. For a crowd is not company, and faces are but a gallery of pictures, and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love.
~ Sir Francis Bacon

  1. Amen.

    I always come see your posts, just to see the picture. It doesn't show on bloglines.

    Kansas Bob said it best. "I wasn't lonely. I was alone." Praise the Lord for brothers and sisters.

  2. Bloglines? How does one use bloglines? I have taken a look once but couldn't quite figure it out though.

    "I am alone, I am not lonely," is a line from the 1995 movie, Heat :)
