Without exertion nothing can be accomplished.
Be still, my soul, and know that peace is thine. Be steadfast, heart, and know that strength divine Belongs to thee; cease from thy turmoil, mind, and thou the Everlasting Rest shalt find. If a man would have peace, let him exercise the spirit of peace; if he would find Love, let him dwell in the spirit of Love; if he would escape suffering, let him cease to inflict it; if he would do noble things for humanity, let him cease to do ignoble things for himself. If he will but quarry the mine of his own soul, he shall find there all the materials for building whatsoever he will, and he shall find there also the Central Rock on which to build in safety.
