"Blood red with the murder of fair resolutions..."

Creativity resides in every human being, but inspiration must be accompanied by perspiration in order to give birth to art. I am trying to reduce the tendency in my life to procrastinate. We only have this moment in which to live and I found this wonderful piece I wanted to share…

“He would not lose his loaf who has taken care at once to eat it, neither can he be deprived of the benefit of the doctrine who had already acted upon it.

Most readers and hearers become moved so far as to purpose to amend: but, alas! the proposal is a blossom which has not been knit, and therefore no fruit comes of it;
they wait, they waver, and then they forget, until,
like ponds in a nights of frost, when the sun shines by day,
they are only thawed in time to be frozen again.

That fatal tomorrow is blood red with the murder of fair resolutions;
it is the slaughterhouse of the innocents."
….Charles Spurgeon.

Oh that I wouldn’t put off til tommorow the cultivation of writing and painting, that I may one day produce such fierce beauty as my friend Charles!
