         than promise and not do.
-Arthur Warwick

What do you think? A man had two sons.
   And he went to the first and said,
       'Son, go and work in the vineyard today.'
           And he answered, "I will not," 
             but afterward he changed his mind and went. 
And he went to the others on and said the same.
      And he answered, "I go, sir," but did not go.
Which of the two did the will of his father?   They said, "the first."
-Matthew 21:28-31

       knowing that suffering produces endurance,
            and endurance produces character, and
                and character produces Hope.

-Romans 5:3-4
