Okay, I admit it...I broke down and listened to this as an audiobook rather than pouring over my printed copy. But methinks that's the mark of a great book: holds up well no matter whether you see the words or hear the words.

Madeleine L'Engle
“Those who believe they believe in God, but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God himself.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Frederick Buechner
“Stop trying to protect, to rescue, to judge, to manage the lives around you . . . remember that the lives of others are not your business. They are their business. They are God’s business . . . even your own life is not your business. It also is God’s business. Leave it to God. It is an astonishing thought. It can become a life-transforming thought . . . unclench the fists of your spirit and take it easy . . . What deadens us most to God’s presence within us, I think, is the inner dialogue that we are continuously engaged in with ourselves, the endless chatter of human thought. I suspect that there is nothing more crucial to true spiritual comfort . . . than being able from time to time to stop that chatter . . . ”
Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

Thérèse de Lisieux
“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
Thérèse de Lisieux

Dr. Seuss
“Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.”

Thérèse de Lisieux
“If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”
