Let nothing disturb thee, nothing affright thee; all things are passing; God never changeth.

All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired, although not in the hour or in the measure, or the very thing which they ask.

No one but a theorist believes his theory; everyone puts faith in a laboratory result but the experimenter himself.
