13:37-39 - "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man," replied Jesus. "The field is the whole world. The good seed? That is the sons of the kingdom, while the weeds are the sons of the evil one. The blackguard who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of this world. The reapers are angels

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:  a time to be born, and a time to die;  a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;  a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek and a time to lose ; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love ,  and a time to hate;  a time for war, and a time for peace. (BIBLE)

.As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg.  No chains, no cages.  It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reasons, they did not.
You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.  -- Saul Bellow. 
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.    “Well”, trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at the age, it is enough to hold them.  As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away.   They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”   The man was amazed.  These animals could at any time break free from their bond but because they believed they couldn’t   they were stuck right where they were.  Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?  Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
