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 wehad 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 reasonof the thing into your mind, and look forward. Mistakes are lessonsof wisdom.... The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in yourpower.
--Hugh White.

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for sowing,Shall doubtless come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
--Psalm 126. 6.

My Father, help me to survey my life. Make me compassionate andconsiderate, 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.
