Giles Andreae

Lionel Trilling

Billy Graham

Work, apart from devotion or love of God, is helpless and cannot stand alone.

Children that have been petted and waited upon, always expect it; and if their expectations are not met, they are disappointed and discouraged. This same disposition will be seen through their whole lives, and they will be helpless, leaning upon others for aid, expecting others to favor them and yield to them.
Ellen G. White
