“Awake! arise! the hour is late!
Angels are knocking at thy door!
They are in haste and cannot wait,
And once departed come no more.

Loses its strength by too much rest;
The fallow land, the untilled farm
Produces only weeds at best.”

“What's knocking on your door...opportunities to succeed or opportunities to fail? Times may get tough, life may not be fair, but never allow fleeting disappointments to corrupt your attitude and your plans for the future.

If your determination to succeed is where it needs to be...failure never makes it to your doorstep. ~Jason Versey”

“Master of human destinies am I.
Fame, love, and fortune on my footsteps wait,
Cities and fields I walk; I penetrate
Deserts and seas remote, and, passing by
Hovel, and mart, and palace, soon or late
I knock unbidden, once at every gate!
If sleeping, wake -- if feasting, rise before
I turn away. It is the hour of fate,
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe
Save death; but to those who doubt or hesitate,
Condemned to failure, penury, and woe,
Seek me in vain and uselessly implore--
I answer not; and I return no more.”
John James Ingalls, A Collection of the Writings of John James Ingalls; Essays, Addresses, and Orations
