Belief is a wise wager.
Granted that faith cannot be proved,
what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false?
If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing.
Wager then, without hesitation, that He exists.
~ Blaise Pascal
[ known as Pascal’s Wager ]

The purpose of life is to listen –
to yourself, to your neighbor, to your world and to God
and, when the time comes,
to respond in as helpful a way as you can find ... from within and without.
~ Fred 'McFeely' Rogers

Never again clutter your days or nights with 
so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept 
a real challenge when it comes along. 
This applies to play as well as work. 
A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. 
You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability
to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. 
No more busy work. 
No more hiding from success. 
Leave time, leave space, to grow. 
Not tomorrow!
~ Og Mandino

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
~ Psalm 118:23
