Today's Quote:

I keep the subject of my inquiry constantly before me, and wait till the first dawning opens gradually, by little and little, into a full and clear light.

Isaac Newton
(1642 - 1727)

That is how inspiration and the Holy Spirit works. Of all things, genius is patience and focus. It is simple. What makes it extraordinary is that so many people are not patient, attentive, and persevering. So what ought to be an ordinary and normal mode of rational being stands out in sharp relief to the depressed ground of the multitude.

The world is made up of intellectual grasshoppers rather than of steadfast ants.
