“Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift,
that’s why it is called the present.”
Yet, it is so easy for us
to become stuck in the past,
be made impotent in the present
because of anxiety
about the future.

From a Christian perspective,
“Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves
regret for the past
and fear of the future.”

It is impossible to have a man sit by you as your brother
and let him go hungry
while you feed.
Therefore we usually do not let him sit by us
we deny that he is our brother.

When I feed the poor, they call me a saint.
When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.

As Mahatma Gandhi, put it,
“An eye for an eye makes the world blind.”
