My Favorite Quote

My favorite quote is from Henry David Thoreau. It reminds me not to succumb to the the pressure of being someone I am not. It teaches me to step out of the rat race and walk calmly and confidently on the path God has marked out for me. I’m quoting it from memory:

“Why are we in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which hears, no matter how measured or far away.”
