They praise what they knowthey abuse what they are ignorant of, and they inspire their knowledge with their ignorance ; though in fairness you should rather judge of what is unknown from what is knownthan what is known from what is unknown.
Others, in the case of persons whom, before they took the name of Christianthey had known as loose, and vile, and wickedput on them a brand from the very thing which they praise. In the blindness of their hatredthey fall foul of their own approving judgment!
What a woman she was! What a youth he was! So the hated name is given to a reformation of character. Some even barter away their comforts for that hatredcontent to bear injury, if they are kept free at home from the object of their bitter enmity.
The wife, now chaste, the husband, now no longer jealous, casts out of his house; the son, now obedientthe father, who used to be so patient, disinherits; the servant, now faithful, the master, once so mild, commands away from his presence; it is a high offense for any one to be reformed by the detested name.

Are not the philosophers called from the founders of their systems — Platonists, EpicureansPythagoreans? Are not the Stoics and Academics so called also from the places in which they assembled and stationed themselves?
And are not physicians named from Erasistratus, grammarians from Aristarchus, cooks even from Apicius?

Subject: Proposal for blood donation camp at our campus Date: 12th October Respected Ma’am, It gives me an immense pleasure to tell you that Red Cross Society has agreed to organize blood donation camp at our campus on 3th November from A.M to PM.

It is a healthy gesture. We must keep this aptitude up at any cost.
