Words Of Note

People often complain of their environment: it is dull, colorless, or even hostile; and it never occurs to them to enliven it or rectify it rather than just endure it. A lamp doesn't complain because it must shine at night.

Antonin Sertillanges, French theologian and writer From 'Rectitude' (1953).
