“In an old English nursery rhyme, there is the line, ‘Tuesday’s child is full of Grace’. But ‘Grace’ is not a gift that comes without effort. Before Grace manifests itself, there is a time of great aspiration, preparation, and hard work. However, Grace is not calculable or bound by logic.” – Michael Parkes
