Adoniram Judson Quote
As quoted in Path for Greatness : Spiritualty at Work (2000) by Linda J. Ferguson, p. 51
“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.”
