Quotes

There’s power in words.  One of my favorite things to do is read and attempt to digest quotes.  So here’s a few of my favorites.  Feel free to add your own or comment on these.  Who knows?  Maybe this can become something weekly.

“Jesus was much more interested in the quality of the people’s response to him than in the quantity of the crowd.”  – Tim Keller

“Jesus our Lord is Prophet, Priest, and King. The concept is not new, yet many preachers never preach it, and many congregations never hear it.”  – A.W. Tozer

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What!  You too?  I thought I was the only one.”  – C.S. Lewis

 

Your turn!

  1. I used to have word documents full of quotes that I had collected over my years of reading … but then my PC crashed and they were gone. This is a good time to begin again my friend! Here are a few I still remember and a few that I recently stumbled upon!

    A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead – Graham Greene “The End of the Affair”

    “Because once we have overcome the defeats – and we always do – we are filled by a greater sense of euphoria and confidence. In the silence of our hearts, we know that we are proving ourselves worthy of the miracle of life” – Paulo Coelho – “The Alchemist”

    “The terrible threat is ‘that we might die earlier earlier than we really do die, before death has become a natural necessity. The real horror lies in just such a premature death, a death after which we go on living for many years’. — Vitezslav Gardavsky – Czech philosopher and martyr “God Is Not Yet Dead”

    Everyone wants to understand painting. Why don’t they try to understand the singing of birds? People love the night, a flower, everything which surrounds them without trying to understand them. But painting…that they must understand.
    -Pablo Picasso

    “No one has greater love than the one who lays down his life for his friends” – Jesus

    • Couple of thoughts Maria: 1) Wow! Impressive reading list.; 2) You keep mentioning the Alchemist. I guess it’s worth the read. 🙂 ; 3) It may be you and I every week, but let’s keep this up. I heart quotes!
