„Do the best you can, without straining yourself too much and too continuously, and leave the rest to God.“

—  Don Marquis American writer 1878 - 1937

The Almost Perfect State (1921)
Kontext: The best good that you can possibly achieve is not good enough if you have to strain yourself all the time to reach it. A thing is only worth doing, and doing again and again, if you can do it rather easily, and get some joy out of it.
Do the best you can, without straining yourself too much and too continuously, and leave the rest to God. If you strain yourself too much you'll have to ask God to patch you up. And for all you know, patching you up may take time that it was planned to use some other way.
BUT... overstrain yourself now and then. For this reason: The things you create easily and joyously will not continue to come easily and joyously unless you yourself are getting bigger all the time. And when you overstrain yourself you are assisting in the creation of a new self — if you get what we mean.

„Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.“

„Be thy best thoughts to work divine addressed;
Do something,— do it soon — will all thy might;
An angel's wing would droop if long at rest,
And God Himself inactive were no longer blessed.“
