Reading from Class week of 4/29/2013: Philippe Vernier
I read this quote in a letter titled “Faith and the Power of Practice” from Patricia Walden and her team. This was a great piece written on the power of maintaining faith and practice through the recent Marathon tragedy and trauma in Boston.
“Do not wait for strength before setting out, for immobility will weaken you further. Do not wait to see clearly before starting; one has to walk toward the light. When you take the first step and accomplish that tiny little act, the necessity of which may be apparent only to you, you will be astonished to feel that the effort, rather than exhausting your strength, has doubled it—and that you already see more clearly what you have to do next.” – Philippe Vernier
These words are truly inspiring and remind me of the following quote I have shared in the past:
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”— Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
