Sayings of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell

 A man came to the Gadfly saying, “I am no good.  I keep trying and keep failing.  God must hate me.”

 The Gadfly said, “There was a woman in a race who fell before the whole crowd and broke her leg.  But she continued on and refused to quit.  She crawled, dragging her broken body across the finish line, and finished last.  When the race was over the whole crowd rose to its feet and cheered, not for the winner, but for the one who was last.  I tell you, there is more honor before God for the one who always fails, but has the courage to keep trying, than for all those to whom it came easy.”
