According to the grace of God which was given unto me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation; and another buildeth thereon. — 1 Cor 3:10
With malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds, … to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
— Abraham Lincoln.
The great moral combat between human life and each human soul must be single…. When a soul arms for battle she goes forth alone.
— Owen Meredith.
Almighty God, I thank thee for the courage that comes with a great life. Help me to be brave, even if it is only that others may be blest. May I lay a careful foundation and plan to build the best that I can afford. Amen.
