February 5: On this day in 1881, the noted English author Thomas Carlyle died in London. He was one of the most influential thinkers of his day as well as a friend and mentor to his American counterpart Ralph Waldo Emerson. Both men believed in the power of one individual to change the world. Carlyle wrote, “The age of miracles is always here.” It was then, and it still is now, only more so.
For Those With Expectant Hearts and Willing Hands, Miracles Await
“The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When we accept tough jobs as a challenge to our ability and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen. When we do our work with a dynamic, conquering spirit, we get things done.”
“Real miracles are created by men when they use their God-given courage and intelligence.”
”Live from miracle to miracle.”
Matthew 19:26 KJV
