“I think magic went out when people began to have steam-engines, and newspapers, and telephones and wireless telegraphing.”
E. Nesbit, The Enchanted Castle

R. Austin Freeman
“Life is made up of strange coincidences," said Thorndyke. "Nobody but a reviewer of novels is ever really surprised at a coincidence.”
R. Austin Freeman

Emanuel Swedenborg
“In the Protestant Christian world, active repentance, which is examining ourselves, recognizing and admitting to our sins, praying to the Lord, and starting a new life, is extremely difficult to practice, for a number of reasons that will be covered later. Therefore here is an easier kind of repentance: When we are considering doing something evil and are forming an intention to do it, we say to ourselves, “I am thinking about this and I am intending to do it, but because it is a sin, I am not going to do it.” This counteracts the enticement that hell is injecting into us and keeps it from making further inroads.”
Emanuel Swedenborg, Regeneration: Spiritual Growth and How It Works

“Does the fact that Ezekiel 32:22-31 teaches we will actually recognize our neighbor in his eternal destination change how we interact with him today? Perhaps, if we are looking toward a spirit-only existence with no connection to our lives on Earth, we can choose not to confront and maintain our respectable position in this world's order. But, if Lazarus can recognize the rich man in Your story, Lord Jesus, not called a parable, we may need to adjust our idea of eternity. If we will be able to identify those in the Philippines or Chile that we ministered to in Your Name, then of what miniscule consequences are the resources on Earth we do without? 10/19/11”

“Make us, Lord, in Chesterton's distinction, travelers instead of tourists. Where the tourist defines his day by the expectation of seeing certain things, give us the traveler's openness to seeing what You will reveal.”
