Barbara Brown Taylor
“Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it.”
Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith

John O'Donohue
“One of the deepest longings of the human soul is to be seen.”
John O'Donohue

Iain Thomas
“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”
Iain Thomas

“Frequently I will end a service of worship in our congregation by saying something like, "Every day this week you have to decide if you want to achieve your life or receive it. If you make achieving your goal, your constant companion will be complaint, because you will never achieve enough. If you make receiving the goal, your constant companion will be gratitude for all that God is achieving in your life." I'm not certain that there are such things as measures of our spirituality, but if there are, then gratitude is probably the best one. It indicates that we are paying attention.”
M. Craig Barnes, The Pastor As Minor Poet: Texts and Subtexts in the Ministerial Life

Jo Walton
“There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.”
Jo Walton
