Weekend Wisdom: Springtime

Springtime…Invites you

to try out its splendor…

to believe anew, to realize that

the same Lord who renews the trees

and buds and blossoms is ready to

renew your life with hope and courage.

Charles R. Swindoll

Spring… it is a natural resurrection, and experience of immortality.

Henry David Thoreau

“The good intent of God become the Christ

And lived on earth-the living love of God-

That men might draw to closer touch with heaven, 

Since Christ in all the way of man hath trod.

The first requisite for success is to develop the ability to focus and apply your mental and physical energies to the problem at hand – without growing weary.

Thomas Edison


Edison’s favorite piece of poetry was stanza nine from Thomas Gray’s Elegy To A Country-Churchyard, which he perpetually recited within earshot of his many associates: 

“The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,
Awaits alike the inevitable hour:
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.”
