”Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”
-William Butler Yeats
The tragedy in life does not lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
It is not a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is certainly a calamity not to dream
-Benjamin E. Mays
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved
- Helen Keller
All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Therefore since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down especially the sin that so easily trips us up, and let us run with endurance the race god has set before us.
Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done
