Quote of the day: Monday

“If one asks for success and prepares for failure, he will get the situation he has prepared for.”

Florence Scovel Shinn


I had always believed that one should hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Then I read this line in the “The Game of Life” and I started to question my “cautious optimism”. Let me just say that living by faith is proving to be a challenge after years of always believing that I only had myself to count on. When I do get it right though, it is so liberating.
