Neither Over-boldness nor Timidity

"Pray for me...that I neither persist, through overboldness, in what is not permitted to me nor withdraw, through too great a timidity, from due effort:  for he who touches the Ark without authorization and he who, having put his hand to the plow, draws it back are both lost."
Letter by C. S, Lewis, Yours, Jack: Spiritual Direction from C.S. Lewis, page 195

And pray for me also, my dear reader, pray for me too!
