Fret

Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil-doing.

PSALMS 37:8 (R. V.)


To anxious, prying thought,

And weary, fretting care,

The Highest yieldeth nought;

He giveth all to prayer.

PAUL GERHARDT


DO not be disquieted about your faults. Love with­out ceasing, and much will be forgiven you, because you have loved much. Faults perceived in peace, in the spirit of love, are immediately consumed by love itself; but faults perceived in a pettish fit of self-love disturb peace, interrupt the presence of God, and the exercise of perfect love. Vexation at a fault is gener­ally more of a fault than the fault itself.

FRANCOIS DE LA MOTHE FÉNELON


Fight like a good soldier; and if thou sometimes fall through frailty, take again greater strength than before, trusting in my more abundant grace.

THOMAS À KEMPIS


This alone is thy concern, to fight manfully, and never, however manifold thy wounds, to lay down thine arms, or to take to flight.
