Do What’s Possible

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible,” quoted the Captain.

“Who said that?” asked Ainsling.

“Ah, St. Francis of Assissi, the patron saint of animals and nature.   When I was a child, I memorized one of his prayers, Li. You would like it.  Let me see if I can remember it all . . .”

He closed his eyes as he recited,

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is error, truth;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

And where there is sadness, joy.
