“The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God.”
Rob Bell, Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith

Charles Dickens
“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
