The one who weeps as he walks along, carrying his bag of seed, will certainly come in with a shout of joy, carrying his sheaves of grain. — Ps 126:6 NET
A man is not his hope, nor yet his despair, nor yet his past deed. We know not yet what we have done; still less what we are doing. Wait till evening, and other parts of our work will shine than we had thought at noon, and we shall discover the real purport of our toil.
— Henry D. Thoreau.
When you make a mistake don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind, and look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom…. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
— Hugh White.
My Father, help me to survey my life. Make me compassionate and considerate, that I may be qualified to promote that which is helpful. May I appreciate that what is worth keeping I can obtain from thee. Amen.
