I love this!

"Do not sow a crop of good intentions in your neighbor's garden, but cultivate your own with diligence."
~St. Francis de Sales

Which is related to a point I included in one of my talks in Memphis this past weekend, that we shouldn't be living our lives as a reaction to the culture (or even to what others are doing) but live as a reaction to Christ's love and sacrifice for us to the best of our own ability.

I really liked this quote, too. St. Francis de Sales has some really great advice that makes excellent quotes!
