Every morning you wake up to something that in all eternity never was before and never will be again. (Fredrick Buechner)
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
I don’t trust a theologian who dismisses the beauty of science or a scientist who doesn’t believe in the power of mystery.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
“Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Savior’s birth is celebrated
The bird of dawning singeth all night long:
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow’d and so gracious is the time.”
