Man’s mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled.

From Colossians 3:23-24:  “Whatever task you must do, work as if your soul depends on it, as for the Lord and not for humans, since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ.”

Dorothea Brande (1893-1948) was an American writer and editor.  From the 1920s and 1930s, her most sustaining works deal with beginning any writing enterprise.
