Quote of the Week

"Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred other virtues which the idle never know."

- Charles Kingsley, 19th-century English clergyman & writer 

(Painting: "Strickendes M├Ądchen vor Fensternische," by Albert Anker, 19th cent.)
