“Man is born free, and
everywhere he is in chains.
Those who think themselves
the masters of others are
indeed greater slaves than they.”

“I prefer liberty with danger
than peace with slavery.”

“Insults are the arguments employed
by those who are in the wrong.”

“No man has any natural authority
over his fellow men.”

“Everything is good as it comes
from the hands of the Maker
of the world, but degenerates
once it gets into the hands of man.”

“I perceive God everywhere
in His works. I sense Him in me;
I see Him all around me.”

“Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has
only one mode of being.”

“What wisdom can you find
greater than kindness?”

~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
