I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
The Bible: Jeremiah chapter 29 verse 11
It is inevitable that life will be not just very short, but very miserable for those who acquire by great toil what they must keep by greater toil.
Seneca the Younger
The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.
