Quote of the Week: Boethius

"The good always have power and the wicked do not....Only the wise can do what they want to do; the wicked can follow their desires, but they cannot...find among their pleasures the good they are really looking for."

- Boethius, early 6th-century Christian philosopher, author of The Consolation of Philosophy
