"So be careful of the way you end things, and devote more attention to a successful exit than to a highly applauded entrance ... What matters isn't being applauded when you arrive-- for that is common-- but being missed when you leave. Rare are those who are still wanted. Fortune seldom accompanies someone to the door. -Baltasar Gracian (1601-1658), "The Art of Worldly Wisdom"
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in . . . . " ~Revelation 3:20
