JDM has received repeated requests for Junior's quips, sayings, analects, even hilarious one-liners, to be compiled into a book or webpage. It is often commented how these concise remarks replay in the mind for years to come, giving simple humor or piercing perspective or new growth. In response, Junior will be publishing a regular quote here. (All content here and sitewide is the intellectual and copyright property of JDM. All rights reserved.)
Do not try to slay a formidable monster all at once. Start by winning easy battles and improve your position. Confidence-building increments feel small in the shortterm, but aggregate into a new You in the longterm, one capable of finally taking down that monster.
Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land.
Exodus 23:30 (NIV)
The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you.
Deuteronomy 7:22 (NIV)
He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough."
