Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some diffi¬cult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. Dr. Martin Luther King Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. As for the executions of 1937-1938, Where is that Special Archive we might be able to penetrate in order to read the figures? There is none. There is none and there never will be any. Therefore we dare report only those figures mentioned in rumours that were quite fresh in 1939-1940, when they were drifting around under the Butyrki arches, having emanated from the high- and middle-ranking Yezhov men of the NKVD who had been arrested and had passed through those cells not long before.

C.H. Spurgeon Amazingly, greedy people become such masters of self-deceit, so blinded to their own evil that they are genuinely surprised, often offended, when someone dares to call them dishonest. ‘Fascinating Stories of Forgotten Lives,’ Charles (Chuck) R Swindoll “If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking.” – Benjamin Franklin Pride, arrogance, resentfulness, evil imaginings, malice, greed are the sources of more human pain than all the diseases that ever afflicted mortal flesh. ‘Pursuit of God,’ A.W.Tozer Beat up your submissive enemies one at a time!
