“I’ve learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.”
Charles F. Stanley, I Lift Up My Soul: Devotions to Start Your Day with God

“As we place our dependence upon God, an incredible freedom and peace will begin to rest in our hearts. And reaching that point in our lives makes every failure worth it.”

“Growing older, it appears, does not mean growing up.”
Michael Marshall Smith, The Intruders

“She’s in advertising. Maybe you’re familiar with it. It’s a profession that seeks to make people spend money so that folks they don’t know can buy an even bigger house. In this way it’s somewhat like organized crime, except the hours are longer.”

“When you meet someone you love, then you change for good. That’s why the other person will never know or understand the earlier you, and why you can never change back. And why, when that person starts to go, you’ll feel the tear deep in your heart long before your head has the slightest clue what’s going on.”
Michael Marshall Smith, The Intruders
