“Aslan, Aslan–did I tell the first joke?”
“No little one, you have only been the first joke.”
–C.S. Lewis, The Magicians Nephew
Do not pray for easy lives, pray to be stronger.
Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers, pray for powers equal to your tasks.
Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle but you shall be a miracle.
Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.
–Venerable Solanus Casey
Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese. –G K Chesterton
No sinner is ever saved after the first twenty minutes of a sermon.
“It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” (–Attributed to pretty much everyone who ever said anything else wise)
