*The birth of your first child marks the beginning of a new obligation to God. You are now responsible for raising one of His precious souls. Don’t cry, you had the naughty fun up front: now you’re stuck doing the work. Remember, you volunteered for this, either deliberately or though carelessness, and He doesn’t care which.
*Your body is only a temporary home for your soul, a vehicle to use to do and learn. The wise person wishes to take care of it well, so it doesn’t become an annoying, painful distraction.
I regret often that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
