There are some people whose instinct is to keep to themselves; there are others whose instinct is to help, and these have the Spirit of Christ in them. -William Barclay
The Great Physician
The wounded surgeon plies the steel
That questions the distempered part;
Beneath the bleeding hands we feel
The sharp compassion of the healers art
Resolving the enigma of the fever chart.
Our only health is the disease
If we obey the dying nurse
Whose constant care is not to please
But to remind of our, and Adam's curse,
And that, to be restored, our sickness must grow worse.
-T.S. Eliot from Four Quartets
One hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.
Nothing gives a more spuriously clean conscious, than keeping rules, even if there is a total lack of real charity and faith. -C.S. Lewis
Science and religion wage a "tireless battle against skepticism and dogmatism, against unbelief and superstition", with the goal: "toward God!"
AThe second surprise from the [Hubble] Deep Field is that the universe=s lights, contrary to astronomer=s hunches, turned on in one great burst. It was as if every chandelier in a mansion were flicked on simultaneously on a moonless night.@ -Newsweek, Nov. 97 Say not my soul, "From whence can God relieve my care?"
-Charles H. Spurgeon
"The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today, is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable."-Brennan Manning
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has always been the reward for what he gave. --Calvin Coolidge
