Shane Claiborne
“How ironic is it to see a bumper sticker that says 'Jesus is the answer' next to a bumper sticker supporting the war in Iraq, as if to says 'Jesus is the answer - but not in the real world.”
Shane Claiborne

Bernard of Clairvaux
“Learn the lesson that, if you are to do the work of a prophet, what you need is not a sceptre but a hoe.”
Bernard of Clairvaux

Thomas à Kempis
“Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.”
Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

Shane Claiborne
“Most good things have been said far too many times and just need to be lived.”
Shane Claiborne

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“... active love is a harsh and fearful thing compared with the love in dreams. Love in dreams thirsts for immediate action, quickly performed, and with everyone watching. Indeed, it will go as far as the giving even of one's life, provided it does not take long but is soon over, as on stage, and eveyone is looking on and praising. Whereas active love is labor and persistence, and for some people, perhaps, a whole science.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
