**The more I/you learn who God truly is, the more incredible his invitation to know him becomes…the high and lofty one offers to draw near to those who are humble. He sent his Son to die so that the One of perfect holiness could dwell among us. God is near. But we don’t manage or contain him. He’s not in our pockets. The almighty One is holding us in {His} hands.
-Joshua Harris

“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook – try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!” -Julia Child

“What we do in life echoes in eternity” -Gladiator

** By the goodness of God we mean nowadays almost exclusively His lovingkindness; and in this we may be right. And by love, in this context, most of us mean kindness… {but love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness}…even the love between the sexes is, as in Dante, “a lord of terrible aspect”…If God is Love, he is, by definition, something more than mere kindness.
-C.S. Lewis

“Education is what is left after you’ve forgotten everything you’ve learned.” -Albert Einstein

** To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.
-C.S. Lewis

“Because you don’t see what can be done, you say God can do nothing–which is like saying there cannot be more within his scope than there is within yours. One thing is clear: if he saw no more than lies within your sight, he could not be God. The very impossibility you see in the thing points to the region God works in.”  -from The Curate’s Awakening by George MacDonald

“Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.” -R.C. Sproul

“Wherever you are – be all there” -Jim Elliot

“It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desires which He creates -Amy Carmichael

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. -C.S. Lewis
