    Chinese proverb.

    I believe that what so saddens the reformer is not his sympathy with his fellows in distress, but, though he be the holiest son of God, is his private ail. Let this be righted, let the spring come to him, the morning rise over his couch, and he will forsake his generous companions without apology.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.
