“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the sea.”  – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“I will not be at the mercy of the telephone!”  – C.S. Lewis

(later)

“I think he would have added ‘email and Facebook!”  – Mark Hamby

“God has plans, not problems for our lives.  The life of a Christian is an education for a higher service. God is training you for something.”   – Corrie Ten Boom

”A cup of sweet water could never spill a drop of bitter water, no matter how heavily it was jolted.”  – Amy Carmichael

(i want to be a cup of sweet water)

If a commission by an earthly king is considered a honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?”  – David Livingstone

“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”  – Martin Luther

“Here is a good searching question for a man to ask himself as he reviews his past life:—Have I written in the snow? Will my life-work endure the lapse of years and the fret of change? Has there been anything immortal in it, which will survive the speedy wreck of all sublunary things? The boys inscribe their names in capitals in the snow, and in the morning’s thaw the writing disappears; will it be so with my work, or will the characters which I have carved outlast the brazen tablets of history? Have I written in the snow?”  – Charles Spurgeon

 

 “The heart of humanity… is certainly much more satisfied by the strange hints and symbols that gather round the Trinitarian idea, the image of a council at which mercy pleads as well as justice, the conception of a sort of liberty and variety existing even in the inmost chamber of the world. … If this love of a living complexity be our test, it is certainly healthier to have the Trinitarian religion than the Unitarian. For to us Trinitarians (if I may say it with reverence)- to us God Himself is a society. … Suffice it to say here that this triple enigma is as comforting as wine and open as an English fireside; that this thing that bewilders the intellect utterly quiets the heart: but out of the desert, from the dry places and the dreadful sun, come the cruel children of the lonely God; the Unitarians who with scimitar in hand have laid waste the world. For it is not well for God to be alone.”  – G.K. Chesterton
