Quotes About Reasonable Accommodation

"God is the highest good of the reasonable creature. The enjoyment of him is our proper; and is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied.

These are but scattered beams; but God is the sun. These are but streams; but God is the fountain. These are but drops, but God is the ocean." - Author: Jonathan Edwards

Im too good at this. Behind my reflection I see the painting of the sea, slanting as if the waves crashing on the rocks have hit with enough force to tip the picture. I turn and straighten it. The frame makes a faint rattling sound when I do. Everything in this place seems to be falling apart." - Author: Victoria Schwab
