quotable

Ah, finally, an outlet for my penchant for collecting fascinating and encouraging quotes!  Here shall whimsy have her free rein… (Well, or something like that, anyway.)

“The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted.  He who will not use the thoughts of other mens’ brains proves that he has no brain of his own.” (C. H. Spurgeon)

“We never imagine that getting our heart’s deepest desires might be the worst thing that can ever happen to us.”  (Tim Keller)

“What God has given us is all we need; we require nothing more. It is not a question of large supplies – it is a question of the presence of the Lord.” (Hudson Taylor)

“Fasting is calculated to bring a note of urgency and importance into our praying, and to give force to our pleading in the court of heaven. The man who prays with fasting is giving heaven notice that he is truly in earnest.” (Arthur Wallis)

“To love at all is to be vulnerable.  Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken.  If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal.  Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.  But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change.  It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” (C. S. Lewis)

“Think like a prophet, serve like a priest, and plan like a king.” (Tim Keller)

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”   (Mark Twain)
