What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.
  - John Wesley

So teach us to number our days, so that we may bring a heart of wisdom...... And let the beauty of the LORD our God be on us; and establish the work of our hands on us; yea, the work of our hands, establish it.
- Moses (Psalm 90:12,17)

It ill becomes the servant to seek to be rich, and great, and honoured in that world where his Lord was poor, and mean, and despised.
- George Müller, 1805-1898
