Inspirational. The man is clearly one-of-a-kind, but only makes you love him and his legacy at Michigan even more.

Orson Scott Card
“I think you don't grow up until you stop worrying about other people's purposes or lack of them and find the purposes you believe in for yourself.”
Orson Scott Card, Xenocide

Barnabas Piper
“Requests can stem only from belief, even if it is just the tiniest inkling of belief.”
Barnabas Piper, Help My Unbelief: Why Doubt Is Not the Enemy of Faith

Orson Scott Card
“I saw what Andrew did in our family. I saw that he came in and listened and watched and understood who we were, each individual one of us. He tried to discover our need and then supply it. He took responsibility for other people and it didn't seem to matter to him how much it cost him. And in the end, while he could never make the Ribeira family normal, he gave us peace and pride and identity. Stability. He married Mother and was kind to her. He loved us all. He was always there when we wanted him, and seemed unhurt by it when we didn't. He was firm with us about expecting civilized behavior, but never indulged his whims at our expense. And I thought: This is so much more important than science. Or politics, either. Or any particular profession or accomplishment or thing you can make. I thought: If I could just make a good family, if I could just learn to be to other children, their whole lives, what Andrew was, coming so late into ours, then that would mean more in the long run, it would be a finer accomplishment than anything I could ever do with my mind or hands."

"So you're a career father," said Valentine.

"Who works at a brick factory to feed and clothe the family. Not a brick-maker who also has kids. Lini also feels the same way... She followed her own road to the same place. We do what we must to earn our place in the community, but we live for the hours at home. For each other, for the children.”
Orson Scott Card, Xenocide

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Fruit is always the miraculous, the created; it is never the result of willing, but always a growth. The fruit of the Spirit is a gift of God, and only He can produce it. They who bear it know as little about it as the tree knows of its fruit. They know only the power of Him on whom their life depends”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

Barnabas Piper
“Questions are the conversational currency of a child. Every question is asked to learn, out of a desire to understand, from a stance of trust. Children ask not to challenge but in order to believe. That's a big part of what "faith like a child" means.”
Barnabas Piper, Help My Unbelief: Why Doubt Is Not the Enemy of Faith
