Disturb us, Lord...

"Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves.
When our dreams come true because we dreamed too little.
When we arrive safely because we have sailed
too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord."

-Sir Francis Drake


  1. I LOVE quotes, and this is one of the best I've seen in a while. For some reason it makes me think of the song "Father, Hear the Prayer We Offer." Thanks for sharing...I am adding that quote to my collection.

  2. I'll have to look up that song.:)
