quotes tagged with 'thorns'

Some would gather money
Along the path of life.
Some would gather roses
And rest from worldy strife.
But I would rather gather children
From among the thorns of sin;
I would seek a golden curl
And a freckled, toothless grin.

For money cannot enter
In that land of endless day,
And the roses that are gathered
Soon will wilt along the way,
But oh, the laughing children
As I cross the Sunset Sea
And the gates swing wide to heaven
I can take them in with me.

My son, God has been merciful and has placed a hedge about you to preserve your life, not to destroy it or deprive you of the luscious fruit that is on the other side.  Do not ever attempt to break through those hedges that God grows, my boy, and you will never feel their thorns.
