Florence Nightingale on the Work of God in her

If I could give you information of my life,
it would be to show how a woman of very ordinary ability
has been led by God in strange and unaccustomed paths
to do in His service what He has done in her.

And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done all,
and I nothing.

I have worked hard, very hard -- that is all,
and I have never refused God anything.

-- Florence Nightingale,
founder of the Red Cross and the nursing profession
