Words of Wisdom

Maybe it's just that I don't know enough about him, but I do not expect the pithy remark, the bon mot, the perfect sound byte, the Take-That-Down-and-&-Embroider-It-On-Sampler motto from Cdl Pell; but how 'bout this?

Well, I'm going to get my embroidery silks out right now! We do live in the age of a thousand options - and everyone keeping those options open. We dart from one thing to another, unable to stop looking over the fence and wondering "well, maybe, I should try this instead..."

As St. Josemaria Escriva said in The Way: Why that fitful character? When are you going to apply your will to something definite? Drop that craze for foundation-stones, and put the finishing touch to just one of your projects.

I just love laying cornerstones, don't you?
