Echoes from the Campfire

Some folks don’t put much store in a man’s words, but with us it was the beginning and the end.  There were some poor folks up where we come from, but they weren’t poor in the things that make a man.”
–Louis L’Amour  (Lonely on the Mountain)

“My father taught me, ‘Take my words to heart. Follow my commands, and you will live.'”
–Proverbs 4:4 (NLT)
