Book cover for Maisie Dobbs (Maisie Dobbs, #1)
The feeling inside that she experienced when she saw the books was akin to the hunger she felt as food was put on the table at the end of the working day. And she knew that she needed this sustenance as surely as her body needed its fuel.
Philip Edgcumbe Hughes
“Resurrection means bodily resurrection or it means nothing at all.”
Philip Edgcumbe Hughes, A Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews

Michael S. Horton
“Many Christians assume that we can just experience God in a personal relationship apart from doctrine, but that’s impossible. You cannot experience God without knowing who he is, what he has done, and who you are in relation to him. Even our most basic Christian experiences and commitments are theological. “I just love Jesus,” some say. But who is Jesus? And why do you love him?”
Michael S. Horton, Pilgrim Theology: Core Doctrines for Christian Disciples

Wendell Berry
“I took her into bed with me and propped myself up with pillows against the headboard to let her nurse. As she nursed and the milk came, she began a little low contented sort of singing. I would feel milk and love flowing from me to her as once it had flowed to me. It emptied me. As the baby fed, I seemed slowly to grow empty of myself, as if in the presence of that long flow of love even grief could not stand.”
Wendell Berry, Hannah Coulter

Andrew Lang
“Young men, especially in America, write to me and ask me to recommend “a course of reading.” Distrust a course of reading! People who really care for books read all of them. There is no other course.”
Andrew Lang, Adventures Among Books

Magda Szabó
“Creativity requires a state of grace. So many things are required for it to succeed.”
Magda Szabó , The Door
