Book cover for Russell Kirk: American Conservative
“And so I sit and wait, in patience and serenity—for the end which is no end. I turn over in my mind the various possibilities of the long journey, amusing myself with fancies that I trust are not purely fanciful. Only of this I am assured, ...more

This had every opportunity to be forced or too cute but ended up being touching and interesting in just the right ways. A look into opioid addiction, friendship, a sort of quarter life crisis and more. Meditative but with enough pace to keep you movi ...more

Darker than I thought, if you can believe it. Still thinking about the relevance for today and the differences between the challenges faced by the world when the book was published at today. Still offers insights into the totalitarian mind and the us ...more

Catherynne M. Valente
“Temptation likes best those who think they have a natural immunity, for it may laugh all the harder when they succumb.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland - For a Little While

Lemony Snicket
“Boredom is not black licorice, Snicket," she said. "There's no reason to share it with me.”
Lemony Snicket, When Did You See Her Last?

“Dry leaves rustled up against the walls and skittered away. It was that time of year when it could be hot or cold from day to day; it was neither summer nor fall. An in-between, liminal time. A border.”
Anonymous

N.T. Wright
“The point was this: if Enlightenment progress is solving the problem of evil, all Jesus needs to have done is to point the way, to show people what love and compassion look like. Being reasonable, people will follow his example. If they do not, they need more teaching in reason. Much would-be Christian thought (including much would-be “biblical” Christian thought) in the last two hundred years has tacitly conceded these huge claims, turning “Kingdom of God” into “the hope for heaven after death” and treating Jesus’s death, at the most, as the mechanism whereby individual sinners can receive forgiveness and hope for an otherworldly future—leaving the politicians and economists of the Enlightenment to take over the running, and as it turns out the ruining, of the world.”
N.T. Wright, Scripture and the Authority of God: How to Read the Bible Today

Philip Yancey
“Shouldn’t we be presenting an alternative to the prevailing culture rather than simply mimicking it? What would a church look like that created space for quietness, that bucked the celebrity trend and unplugged from noisy media, that actively resisted our consumer culture? What would worship look like if we directed it more toward God than toward our own amusement?”
Philip Yancey, Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News?
