Our Measurement

Remember – the sky is the limit.  Go for it….

“God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.” 
Marcus Garvey

  1. Simon Winchester quotes Sir Thomas Brown: “The created world is but a small parenthesis in eternity.” We will have to be more than “high achievers” if we gauge our progress by the sky that to us has no end in sight, or God and eternity, both of which we can’t comprehend and have to understand by faith. However, Marcus Garvey has the right idea. I believe we can continue to learn to the end of our earthy lives–and beyond.

      Thank you! I have learned it is much easier to take photos of flowers than of people – they sit still!!
