One Of The Things I Learned From Robert Collier…

“…but you remember the story of the famous Saint of Italy, who traveled from town to town healing the lame, the halt, and the blind.

A pilgrim hastening to a town where the Saint was expected met two lame beggars hurrying away.

He asked them the reason for their haste, to be told, to his astonishment, it was because the Saint was coming to town.

As they put – “He will surely heal us, and where will our livelihood be then?”

So it is with many people today – not beggars, mind you – but people in every walk of life.

They have become so wedded to their ailments; they “enjoy poor health” so thoroughly, that they are secrectly a bit proud of it.

Take away their complaints and they would be lost without them.”Robert Collier, Secret of the Ages
