To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

Strong in your choices

Do not give your priceless moments away for nothing. Focus your attention, your resources, your energy where they will lift up life and create real benefit.

Choose the goals that challenge you, do the work that’s difficult. Seek goodness and meaning over comfort and expedience.

What comes easily disappears quickly. What you obtain with no sacrifice or no effort cannot possibly provide any lasting value.

Align yourself with truth, with what’s good, with what’s right, even if it’s not popular or convenient. Truth eventually makes itself unavoidable, and when that happens you definitely want to already be on its side.

Every choice you make will either add to the quality and integrity of your life, or detract from it. That is a serious hazard, and an enormous opportunity.

Today, tomorrow, every time, choose what you know is right, what you know is best. Be strong in your choices, and bring new and valuable rewards to all of life.
