God provides the wind, Man must raise the sail.
Saint Augustine

We have usurped many of the powers we once ascribed to God. Fearful and unprepared, we
have assumed lordship over the life or death of the whole world - of all living things. The
danger and the glory and the choice rest finally in man. The test of his perfectibility is at
hand. Having taken Godlike power, we must seek in ourselves for the responsibility and the
wisdom we once prayed some deity might have. Man himself has become our greatest hazard
and our only hope. So that today, St. John the apostle may well be paraphrased: In the end
is the Word, and the Word is Man - and the Word is with Men.
John Steinbeck

God looks to clean hands, not to full ones.
English proverb
