“It has been often said, very truly, that religion is the thing that makes the ordinary man feel extraordinary; it is an equally important truth that religion is the thing that makes the extraordinary man feel ordinary."
- Charles Dickens
“The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.”
There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way."
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.
I believe in the sun even if it isn't shining. I believe in love even when I am alone. I believe in God even when He is silent.
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. ~Honoré de Balzac
“Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow
So quiet down, cobwebs
Dust, go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.
Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing.
~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
It is not true that nice guys finish last. Nice guys are winners before the game ever starts.
