~Your Are The Balm Which Soothes Me~

BALM~TRUE GOODNESS
True goodness is proved like true balm; for as balm, when dropped into water, if it sinks and rests at the bot tom, is so accounted the most excellent and precious; so, if you would know whether a man be truly wise, learned or generous, observe whether his qualifications tend to humility, modesty and submission; for then they shall be good indeed: but if they swim on the surface, and strive to appear above water, they shall be so much the less true, in the same proportion as they appear.”

~St. Francis de Sales.
