All riches have their origin in mind. Wealth is in ideas – not money.

Inventors and Discoverers

75.
So we went to Atari and said, “Hey, we’ve got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we’ll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we’ll come work for you.” And they said, “No.” So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, “Hey, we don’t need you. You haven’t got through college yet.”
~Steve Jobs, cofounder of Apple Computer

76.
I was elated, ecstatic and extremely surprised that we were successful.
~Neil Armstrong (b. 1930), American Astronaut, the first man to set foot on the moon.

January 27: “How Soon Hath Time” by John Milton

How Soon Hath Time by John Milton

 

Stolen on his wing my three and twentieth year!

My hasting days fly on with full career,

But my late spring no bud or blossom shew’th.

Perhaps my semblance might deceive the truth,

That I to manhood am arrived so near,

And inward ripeness doth much less appear,

That some more timely-happy spirits endu’th.

Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow,

It shall be still in strictest measure even

To that same lot, however mean or high,

Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven;

All is, if I have grace to use it so,

As ever in my great Taskmaster’s eye.

Day’s Short Christian Poems

Day’s Short Christian Poems

Discover what
God has concealed
And you will see
The Truth revealed.
~Day

Come back to Christ,
Surrender pride:
Let Him control
And run your rides.
~Day

The grass will fade
And friends will bail,
But God is Love,
Which never fails.
~Day

To decimate
A country well,
Get rid of God;
Let Satan dwell.
~Day

Instruct the world
To work with God
Pull shovels out
And break the sod.
~Day

In history
We see black deeds,
Yet God will wait
To pull the weeds.
~Day

The human heart,
Deceitful dirt,
Will twist and turn,
Stay and desert.
~Day

When I go home
To heaven, see,
I’m gonna be
Forever free.
~Day

You can’t please God
By chasing sin;
Turn back to Him
And then you’ll win.
~Day

The harvest, great,
The workers, few,
Ask God to send
The workers through.
~Day
Mt. 9:37-38

Put faith in God–
Your life will change,
Though at the start
You might feel strange.
~Day

Christ Jesus is
The one they need;
But they won’t see
And won’t pay heed.
~Day

The highest king,
The lowest slave,
Through Jesus Christ
Both can be saved.
~Day

What men believe
Will shape their fate;
Where God is Love,
Men give up hate.
~Day

A Child has come
To save our souls
But oh how we
Want full control.
~Day

To be a star
Seek Jesus’ face
And you will light
The human race.
~Day

Do not forsake
Your wife of youth
Seek righteousness,
Peace, love and truth.
~Day
