Scary Close by Donald Miller
"Don's journey into marriage, with all the insights of his cultivated community of wisdom, reads like a collection of blog posts. Gone are the days of, "Blue Like Jazz" and, "Searching for God Knows What." Point taken, in so far as, if you are sear..." Read more of this review »

If you’ve ever been bored out of your mind just thinking about reading anything from the Career section at Barnes and Noble, I would still recommend giving this one a try. Jon Acuff has a talent for making what could be a dry subject area easy to rea ...more

Scary Close by Donald Miller

Madeleine L'Engle
“An artist is a nourisher and a creator who knows that during the act of creation there is collaboration. We do not create alone.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Madeleine L'Engle
“If we allow our "high creativity" to remain alive, we will never be bored. We can pray, standing in line at the super market. Or we can be lost in awe at all the people around us, their lives full of glory and tragedy, and suddenly we will have the beginnings of a painting, a story, a song.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Shauna Niequist
“Sometimes we have to leave home in order to find out what we left there, and why it matters so much.”
Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

G.K. Chesterton
“The curse that came before history has laid on us all a tendency to be weary of wonders. If we saw the sun for the first time it would be the most fearful and beautiful of meteors. Now that we see it for the hundredth time we call it, in the hideous and blasphemous phrase of Wordsworth, "the light of common day." We are inclined to increase our claims. We are inclined to demand six suns, to demand a blue sun, to demand a green sun. Humility is perpetually putting us back in the primal darkness. There all light is lightning, startling and instantaneous. Until we understand that original dark, in which we have neither sight nor expectation, we can give no hearty and childlike praise to the splendid sensationalism of things.”
G.K. Chesterton

Viktor E. Frankl
“A life of short duration...could be so rich in joy and love that it could contain more meaning than a life lasting eighty years.”
Viktor E. Frankl
