“Giving someone the benefit of the doubt is not so simple as it sounds. What it means, in fact, is being charitable--which, as the vicar is fond of pointing out, is the most difficult of the graces to master. Faith and hope are a piece of cake but charity is a Pandora's box: the monster in the cistern which, when the lid is opened, comes swarming out to seize you by the throat.”
Alan Bradley, Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd

“As anybody with two older sisters can tell you, a closed door is like a red rag to a bull. It cannot go unchallenged.”
Alan Bradley, Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd

“Modern food may be the most compelling lie humans have ever told.”
Mark Schatzker, The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor

“Satan’s chief device of temptation is to attack the truth of God.”
R.C. Sproul, Pleasing God

R.C. Sproul
“The theater of God’s redemption is this world. It is to this world that God came in Christ. Christ refused to allow His disciples to hide in an upper room with the doors locked because of fear. No tabernacles were allowed on the Mount of Transfiguration. We are called to be Christ’s witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). Jerusalem is in this world. Judea is in this world. Samaria is in this world. The ends of the earth are still on this earth. So we should not flee this world. But, oh, how many Christians try to do so. And in doing so, they may actually be displeasing the God who wants the world to be redeemed, not escaped.”
R.C. Sproul, Pleasing God
