Parenting by Paul David Tripp
“Sadly, rather than growing in a sense of need for and submission to the authority that God has placed in their lives, many children become emotional weathermen. They have come to understand that the rules of the house tend to change with the emotion of the parent who is present.”
Paul David Tripp

Reformed Dogmatics Volume 3 by Herman Bavinck

This one was much more dense than the other three volumes, and I felt like he got off topic a lot more, focusing on other theologians claims about sin and salvation. Also I think I’m getting tired and ready to be done with these four volumes. Lastly ...more

Ministries of Mercy by Timothy J. Keller

Great read, the last half is more focused on people in leadership in the church but still, it's such a convicting read. I found myself not wanting to read it because, frankly, I'm a bit selfish and living out the gospel is not easy.

Definitely worth reading, wish I read it sooner. Near the end gets a bit contentious but boy his claims about current make so much more sense in light of the history of racism in the west.

J. Daniel Hays
“In 164 BC they defeat the Seleucid army, recapture Jerusalem, and cleanse the temple. To celebrate the cleansing of the temple, the Jewish festival of Hanukkah is instituted, a holiday that Jews continue to celebrate today.”
J. Daniel Hays, The Temple and the Tabernacle: A Study of God's Dwelling Places from Genesis to Revelation

“Don’t talk to your children about that which you have spoken little with God.”
Tedd Tripp, Instructing a Child's Heart

Hannah Arendt
“None of the various 'language rules,' carefully contrived to deceive and to camouflage, had a more decisive effect on the mentality of the killers than this first war decree of Hitler, in which the word for 'murder' was replaced by the phrase 'to grant a mercy death.' Eichmann, asked by the police examiner if the directive to avoid 'unnecessary hardships' was not a bit ironic, in view of the fact that the destination of these people was certain death anyhow, did not even understand the question, so firmly was it still anchored in his mind that the unforgivable sin was not to kill people but to cause unnecessary pain.”
Hannah Arendt, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil

“When I think about adding a new thing to my home, I think first of its beauty, second of its utility, and finally of its staying power.”
Erin Boyle, Simple Matters: Living with Less and Ending Up with More

“My emphasis on language also comes from a deep conviction that language shapes our thoughts. You cannot answer a question that you cannot ask, and you cannot ask a question that you have no words for.”
Judea Pearl, The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect
