Just some quotes

In order to discover new lands, one must be willing to lose sight ofthe shore for a very long time.-- Andre Gide (1869–1951) French Writer


Indeed if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are halfhearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered to us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in the slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday by the sea. We are far too easily pleased.
C.S. Lewis :: The Weight Of Glory

May God be working in you and through you, sister j!
