Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still


"Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still."
- Chinese Proverb

"Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out."
- James Bryant Conant

"Someone asked Jesus, 'Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?'
He said to them, 'Make every effort to enter through the narrow door,
because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.'"
Luke 13:23-24

Lord, give that I continue to make progress in this life
and that I will succeed to go through the narrow gate
and so will be allowed to enter in your kingdom.

Dutch version / Nederlandse versie > Wees niet bang voor langzaam te gaan; wees alleen bang voor stil te staan
