    Mitch Albom

    Mitch Albom
    “Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to. Little sacrifices. Big sacrifices. A mother works so her son can go to school. A daughter moves home to take care of her sick father.”
    Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

    “Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe.”

    C.S. Lewis

    C.S. Lewis

    C.S. Lewis
    “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
    C.S. Lewis

  • #7
    C.S. Lewis
    “[To have Faith in Christ] means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”
    C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

  • #8
    C.S. Lewis
    “I think all Christians would agree with me if I said that though Christianity seems at first to be all about morality, all about duties and rules and guilt and virtue, yet it leads you on, out of all that, into something beyond. One has a glimpse of a country where they do not talk of those things, except perhaps as a joke. Everyone there is filled full with what we should call goodness as a mirror is filled with light. But they do not call it goodness. They do not call it anything. They are not thinking of it. They are too busy looking at the source from which it comes. But this is near the stage where the road passes over the rim of our world. No one's eyes can see very far beyond that: lots of people's eyes can see further than mine.”
    C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

  • #9
    John Piper
    “Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. The gospel is not a way to get people to heaven; it is a way to get people to God. It's a way of overcoming every obstacle to everlasting joy in God. If we don't want God above all things, we have not been converted by the gospel.”
    John Piper, God Is the Gospel: Meditations on God's Love as the Gift of Himself

  • #10
    John Piper
    “If you live gladly to make others glad in God, your life will be hard, your risks will be high, and your joy will be full.”
    John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life Study Guide

  • #11
    John Piper
    “The critical question for our generation—and for every generation—
    is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the
    friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and
    all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties
    you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no
    human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with
    heaven, if Christ were not there? ”
    John Piper, God Is the Gospel: Meditations on God's Love as the Gift of Himself

    Max Lucado
    “You weren't an accident. You weren't mass produced. You aren't an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman.”
    Max Lucado, The Christmas Candle

  • #17
    Max Lucado
    “He saw you cast into a river of life you didn't request. He saw you betrayed by those you love. He saw you with a body that gets sick and a heart that grows weak. He saw you in your own garden of gnarled trees and sleeping friends. He saw you staring into the pit of your own failures and the mouth of your own grave. He saw you in your own garden of Gethsemane and he didn't want you to be alone ... He would rather go to hell for you than to heaven without you.”
    Max Lucado

    Max Lucado
    “What you and I might rate as an absolute disaster, God may rate as a pimple-level problem that will pass. He views your life the way you view a movie after you've read the book. When something bad happens, you feel the air sucked out of the theater. Everyone else gasps at the crisis on the screen. Not you. Why? You've read the book. You know how the good guy gets out of the tight spot. God views your life with the same confidence. He's not only read your story...he wrote it. ”
    Max Lucado, Grace for the Moment Daily Bible, New Century Version

    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
    "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    J.R.R. Tolkien

  • #23
    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “I can put it no plainer than by saying that Bilbo was meant to find the Ring, and not by its maker. In which case you also were meant to have it. And that may be an encouraging thought.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

    Joshua Harris
    “Don’t concern yourself with being right in others’ eyes. And don’t secretly hope that their lives will fall apart so that your opinion will be vindicated. Instead, concentrate on obeying God in your own life and, when possible, helping others to obey Him as well. You don’t have to prove others wrong to continue on the course you know God has shown you.”
    Joshua Harris, I Kissed Dating Goodbye: A New Attitude Toward Relationships and Romance

    Abraham Lincoln

    “If you are not in the process of becoming the person you want to be, you are automatically engaged in becoming the person you don't want to be. ”
