A Beautiful Amish Quote


I saw this on the Amish America website and thought it should be shared. I love it!
We realize that not everyone is cut out to be one of the plain people. Many have not the opportunity; but here is the challenge:
If you admire our faith — strengthen yours.
If you admire our sense of commitment — deepen yours.
If you admire our community spirit — build your own.
If you admire the simple life — cut back.
If you admire deep character and enduring values — live them yourself.
— an Amish man writing in Small Farm Journal, Summer, 1993
