"i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes"
— e.e. cummings
"Meaninglessness does not come from being weary of pain. Meaninglessness comes from being weary of pleasure. When you have exhausted that last dream and you find it leaves you barren or empty"
— G.K. Chesterton
"This life’s five windows of the soul
Distorts the Heavens from pole to pole,
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not thro’, the eye
That was born in a night, to perish in a night,
When the soul slept in the beams of light."
— William Blake
"When you realize we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, it is not that they’re watching us, it is but what we see in them. At the end of it all we do know who is watching us, and that’s the very Son of God who stands up to receive his own when the last word has been written, that divine accolade, “Well done.” I want you to so play, and so run, that you’re being watched by Him who loves you the most, who created you for a purpose. Live for Him so that the coaches and the specialist of this world will know why it is you’ve given your heart and soul into accomplishing it with Brilliance."
— Ravi Zacharias "Why Hope?" Sermon
