“Lead, Kindly Light, amidst the encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

Hymn by Cardinal John Henry Newman quoted by William Abbot in his autobiography

I had to conclude that I was on a different wavelength and that I  marched to a different drummer.  Who was that drummer?  He would show Himself in time.  It is always in His time and in His way.  He does His work according to His timetable and in His own manner.  He loves to draw straight with crooked lines.  But oh, those crooked lines, how often they would rend the heart.  –Abbot William
