    "Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16)

      and "Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men."(Pro 22:29)

    Those two inspire me to live right and to work diligently.

      Thanks for the response! You inspired me to look through his many great quotes: "He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature." And "Let him that would move the world first move himself."

      That sounds almost like a mandate or challenge to me--he doesn't give any hint how to get a "cheerful heart". I wish it were true, also, however. Does anybody know how to get a "cheerful heart" all the time with "no sorrow"?

    I have never thought about this but it reminds me the profound truth of Buddha, the first one says that life is suffering. This reduces the pain of life once you realize that suffering in life is a truth.

      I believe the quote is from FDR's 1st innaugural address (not Churchill), "...let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself -- nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts..."
