"...those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it." Job 4:8
"The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if your forsake him, he will forsake you." II Chronicles 15:2
"The life above, when this is past,
Is the ripe fruit of life below.
Sow love, and taste its fruitage pure,
Sow peace, and reap its harvest bright
Sow sunbeams on the rock and moor,
And find a harvest-home of light."
"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith, where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."
St. Francis of Assisi
