Don’t let people stop your world from turning, and risk everything falling off. If their Krypton worlds have stopped and exploded, tell these bizarro evaders, this is not the Kansas farm they are looking for and to rocket off. If they do not fly away, pull out your Kryptonite (Jesus Christ).
If God were the sole object of our desire, we should not be disturbed so easily by opposition to our opinions. But often something lurks within or happens from without to draw us along with it. The Imitation of Christ

Amen I say to you: He shall make him ruler over all his goods.” The Imitation of ChristNever be completely unoccupied, but read or write or pray or meditate or do something for the common good. – The Imitation of Christ

If you do not overcome small, trifling things, how will you overcome the more difficult? -The Imitation of Christ
