“Just think,
your not here by chance, but by God's choosing you. His hand formed you, He made you the person you are.
He compares you to no one else --
your on of a kind. You lack nothing His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.”

C.S. Lewis
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even 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.

C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
