No April Fool's Joke

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."

This famous quote is not attributed to Clopin from Hunchback of Notre Dame or from any other character out of the Disney movies. No, it is not from Victor Hugo and his excellent novel either. This real insight comes from Jim Elliot, a young Christian martyr of the 20th century who chose to give his life for the sake of the message of the gospel to the Waodani people of Ecuador. Chew on this one long enough until it changes your life, and you'll be no fool either.
