A Quote by Ray Bradbury on god, errands, pray, esteem, suffering, silence, and forgotten

"Oh, ancient god, whatever your name," whispered Ahmed. "Help this lost son of a good father, this evil boy who meant no harm but slept in school, ran errands slowly, did not pray from his heart, ignored his mother, and did not hold his family in great esteem. For all this I know I must suffer. But here in the midst of silence, at the desert's heart, where even the wind knows not my name? Must I die so young? Am I to be forgotten without having been?"

Ray Bradbury (1920 -)

There are admirable potentialities in every human being.  Believe in your strength and your youth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself: "It all depends on me."
