"We are often the last to see how noble are our opportunities, to feel how inspiring the voices are that call us to high duties and productive sacrifice: and while we loiter on in the track of drowsy habit esteeming our lot in life common and profane, better hearts are looking on, burning within them to stand on the spot where we stand, to seize its hope, and be true to all its sacredness."

I always thought the loss of Anna Nicole Smith was such a great tragedy. She came to mind when I read this post, but certainly each of us make so many poor choices and miss so much of what God has for us and the good things we were created for.
