what you are

“keep a clear eye toward life’s end. do not forget your purpose and destiny as god’s creature. what you are in his sight is what you are and nothing more. remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received – fading symbols of honor, trappings of power – but only what you have given: a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.”

st. francis of assisi
