Laying a new foundation



Abba Moses asked Abba Silvanus,
"Can a man lay a new foundation every day?"
The old man said,
"If he works hard, he can lay a new foundation at every moment."

From the wisdom of the Desert Fathers

True quote, Dina.
Goodwill is essential to build the Peace too: unfortunately some leaders have not the word goodwill in their dictionary, even less in their mind.

I love your photos, and this one is no different.

The quote is quite thought-provoking, in many ways. The photo, and its wonderful textures, add emotion to the wise words.
