quotes tagged with 'prepardness'

Can we see how critical self-reliance becomes when looked upon as the prerequisite to service, when we all know service is what Godhood is all about? Without self-reliance one cannot exercise these inane desires to serve. How can we give if there is nothing there? Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves. Money to assist the needy cannot come from an empty purse. Support and understanding cannot come from the emotionally starved. Teaching cannot come from the unlearned. And most important of all, spiritual guidance cannot come from the spiritually weak.

Preparedness, when properly pursued, is a way of life, not a sudden, spectacular program.
