Proverbs 29:18 KJV
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Going through life without a clear plan or vision is liken to not being alive at all. When you set principles for yourself and live by them, life becomes simpler and more productive. “The most pathetic person in the world is some one who has sight but no vision” (Helen Keller).

Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?  And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord , and wept sore.
