How strange and vibrant and astounding is this thing called life! So what if it’s hard? So what if we’re hounded by troubles, pressured and embattled on all sides? So many good gifts outweigh the trials. Thank God that we encounter some resistance to our cavelier passage through this world. Thank God He has designed life, not to be easy, but to test us to the limit and so turn lazy ingrates into children of God who are strong and fearless and full of love.
“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy.” (Edward Morgan)
“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” (Dr Seuss)
