„Have confidence in the Providence that so far has never failed us. The way is not yet clear. Grope along slowly.“

—  Théodore Guérin Catholic saint and nun from France 1798 - 1856

Letter to the Sisters at Jasper 1842-03-20.
Kontext: You may have to wait longer than you would like, you may have to bear privations; but, bear and forebear. Have confidence in the Providence that so far has never failed us. The way is not yet clear. Grope along slowly. Do not press matters; be patient, be trustful.

„I never fail to toss a stone on the pile, Hannes. In my own way it is a small offering to those lonesome gods.“

—  Louis L'Amour Novelist, short story writer 1908 - 1988

Quelle: The Lonesome Gods (1983), Ch. 8
Kontext: Sometimes, when crossing a pass in the mountains, one will see a pile of loose stones, even several piles. Foolish people have dug into them, thinking treasure is buried there. It is a stupid idea, to think a treasure would be marked so obviously.
It is an old custom of these people to pick up a stone and toss it on the pile.  Perhaps it is a symbolical lightening of the load they carry, perhaps a small offering to the gods of the trails. I never fail to toss a stone on the pile, Hannes. In my own way it is a small offering to those lonesome gods. 
A man once told me they do the same thing in Tibet, and some of our ancient people may have come from there, or near there. Regardless of that, I like to think those ancient gods are out there waiting, and that they are, because of my offerings, a little less lonely.
