Drifting Downstream

...everyone who grows up does not become an adult. (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today! 5 March)

Eating to excess is not considered to be a sin by many, because it produces no noticeable harm. But there are sins which destroy human dignity, and eating to excess is one such sin. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 4 March)

We [can] become careless, bored, lackadaisical in our efforts. Instead of disciplining ourselves to further spiritual growth, we rest on our oars and then wonder why we are drifting downstream. (Food For Thought, 8 April)
