Robert H. Smith - Quotes
The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop--
At late or early hour.
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more,
To lose one's soul is souch a loss
As no man can restore.
The present only is our own;
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in tomorrow,
For the clock may then be still.
"Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Jesus replied, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.
