A Word for Wednesday

"But for such footmen as thee and I are, let us never desire to meet with an Enemy, nor vaunt as if we could do better, when we hear of others that they have been foiled, nor be tickled at the thoughts of our own Manhood, for such commonly come by the worst when tried. Witness Peter, of whom I made mention before; he would swagger, ay, he would; he would, as his vain mind prompted him to say, do better, and stand more for his Master than all men; but, who so foiled and run down by these villains as he?"

~from The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan~


  1. preach again. bunyan knew what he was talking about.

  2. "Gravity is working against's taken better men than me." -John Mayer

  3. A fool will tell you what he will do; a man who boasts will tell you what he has done; but the wise man just does it and says nothing.
