Quotemeal: Jan. 23rd, 2022

Sunday, January 23, 2022

"We can do nothing, we say sometimes, we can only pray. That, we feel, is a terribly precarious second-best. So long as we can fuss and work and rush about, so long as we can lend a hand, we have some hope; but if we have to fall back upon God — ah, then things must be critical indeed!"
— A. J. Gossip
