Paul Gerhardt Quote
“Oh! make me Thine forever;
And should I fainting be,
Lord! let me never, never,
Outlive my love to Thee!”
Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 400.
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.”
