Henri J.M. Nouwen
“Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

P.G. Wodehouse
“There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.”
P.G. Wodehouse

Anne Lamott
“There's a lovely Hasidic story of a rabbi who always told his people that if they studied the Torah, it would put Scripture on their hearts. One of them asked, "Why on our hearts, and not in them?" The rabbi answered, "Only God can put Scripture inside. But reading sacred text can put it on your heart, and then when your hearts break, the holy words will fall inside.”
Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith

Dallas Willard
“If the Bible says something once, notice it but don’t count it as a fundamental principle. If it says it twice, think about it twice. If it is repeated many times, then dwell on it and seek to understand it. What you want to believe from the Bible is its message on the whole and use it as a standard for interpreting the peripheral passages.”
Dallas Willard, Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God
