Two Things

It may not seem like these two quotes relate, but they are simmering together in my mind:

The life of the mind grows upon ideas.

--CM Volume 2 p. 29


My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

--James 1:2-8

Interesting! Seeing them together made me think a bit, too.
