"Ask God's blessing on your work, but don't ask him to do it for you."
~Dame Flora Robson, English thespian
I sign my emails with this one.
I’m in love with quotes, but what made me chose this one?
First off, it’s a thespian… an actor… a fellow lover of the stage.
According to Wikipedia,
“Dame Flora McKenzie Robson DBE (28 March 1902 – 7 July 1984) was an English actress, renowned as a character actress, who played roles ranging from queens to villainesses.”
I don’t think I’ll ever become a lady, but to be a famous character actress – that’d be pretty amazing.
I’m itching to have some work to ask God’s blessing for. I try to apply this quote to my day job as well, and that’s why I sign my e-mails with it. It reminds me constantly to keep Him in sight and know that there is more than the daily grind.
Do you have a favorite quote? I love hearing other people’s favorites!
