I wish I'd re-read the others in this series before jumping into this one. I found that I'd forgotten quite a few details from the first books. Nonetheless, this one was pretty good! It was a little slow to start and ended with little resolution, but ...more

John Piper
“The strength of patience hangs on our capacity to believe that God is up to something good for us in all our delays and detours.”
John Piper, Battling Unbelief: Defeating Sin with Superior Pleasure

Henry David Thoreau
“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us even in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Shauna Niequist
“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don't want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.”
Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life

A.A. Milne
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Frank McCourt
“I told her tea bags were just a convenience for people with busy lives and she said no one is so busy they can't take time to make a decent cup of tea and if you are that busy you don't deserve a decent cup of tea for what is it all about anyway? Are we put into this world to be busy or to chat over a nice cup of tea?”
Frank McCourt, ' Tis: a Memoir
