"Our lives are full of supposes. Suppose this should happen, or

suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we

bear it? But, if we are living in the high tower of the dwelling place

of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives. We shall be

quiet from the fear of evil, for no threatenings of evil can penetrate

into the high tower of God."

- Hannah Whitall Smith

of the disease of fearing."

- Charles Spurgeon

"It is better to make a thousand failures than to be too cowardly

to ever undertake anything."
