Quote by Mary Austin

“We are not all born at once, but by bits. The body first, and the spirit later… Our mothers are racked with the pains of our physical birth; we ourselves suffer the longer pains of our spiritual growth.”

Overcome yourself…

Overcome yourself...

“If you want to overcome the whole world, overcome yourself.”

~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky

No truer words, nor more difficult to enact.
True to form, Dostoyevsky says sit like it is, even when it cuts to the heart… and daunts even the strong in faith.

Such is my prayer… Lord have mercy.
