Better to love God and die unknown than to love the world and be a hero;
better to be content with poverty than to die a slave to wealth;
better to have taken some risks and lost than to have done nothing and succeeded at it;
better to have lost some battles than to have retreated from the war;
better to have failed when serving God than to have succeeded when serving the devil.
What a tragedy to climb the ladder of success, only to discover that the ladder was leaning against the wrong wall!
