    And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
    —Revelation 16:7 (KJV)
    At the Day of Judgment, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, I.iii.5, p.35 (see the book)

    Lord, You rebuke my idleness.
