The Daily Reminder: Fulton J. Sheen on Sharp Tongues and Envy

victory over vice

The Daily Catch - published on 04/11/16

…There is a bit of jealousy, a bit of envy, behind every cutting remark and barbed whispering we hear about our neighbor. It is always good to remember that there are always more sticks under the tree that has the most apples. There should be some consolation for those who are so unjustly attacked to remember that it is a physical impossibility for any man to get ahead of us who stays behind to kick us.
— Venerable Fulton John Sheen, Victory Over Vice
