Psalm 120:1-7

A Song of Ascents.
1 In my distress I cry to the Lord,
   that he may answer me:
2 “Deliver me, O Lord,
    from lying lips,
    from a deceitful tongue.”

3 What shall be given to you?
    And what more shall be done to you,
    you deceitful tongue?
4 A warrior’s sharp arrows,
    with glowing coals of the broom tree!

5 Woe is me, that I am an alien in Meshech,
    that I must live among the tents of Kedar.
6 Too long have I had my dwelling
    among those who hate peace.
7 I am for peace;
    but when I speak,
    they are for war. 

Psummer of Psalms - 120

There's a famous saying, attributed to the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu: The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

  • Of course, like most popular sayings in the internet age, this one has spawned some interesting variations, some of them less optimistic (perhaps more realistic?) than the original:

  • Some variations target a specific demographic, like fashionistas:
