When a man reflects

When a man reflects upon himself, responds to the Holy Spirit that lives and calls within him, and follows its secret nod instead of his own whims or the advice of others, by applying himself and adhering to the station for which he was born into the world and to which he was assigned by the Highest Being Himself – this is to undertake happily one’s calling with God.

(Hryhorij Skovoroda (1722-1794), Ukraine)
