    Here's one I found from C.S.Lewis

    "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen:
    not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

    Effortlessly,
    Love flows from God into man,
    Like a bird
    Who rivers the air
    Without moving her wings.
    Thus we move in His world
    One in body and soul,
    Though outwardly separate in form.
    As the Source strikes the note,
    Humanity sings --
    The Holy Spirit is our harpist,
    And all strings
    Which are touched in Love
    Must sound.

    - Mechthild of Magdeburg

    I love that one Aspen. I find it interesting to look up the person who wrote or said anything like this.

    So I found Mechthild of Magdeburg and another quote ...

    "I cannot dance, Lord, unless You lead me."

    "The gospel of grace is the end of religion, the final posting of the CLOSED sign on the sweatshop of the human race's perpetual struggle to think well of itself. For that, at bottom, is what religion is: man's well-meant but dim-witted attempt to approve of his unapprovable condition by doing odd jobs he thinks some important Something will thank him for.
    "Religion, therefore, is a loser, a strictly fallen activity. It has a failed past and a bankrupt future. There was no religion in Eden and there won't be any in heaven; and in the meantime Jesus has died and risen to persuade us to knock it all off right now."
    (Ibid., pg. 166.)

    Can't remember the exact quote ... alright Ill get the book out.

    The book is titled The Question of God

    Written by a former Harvard proffessor the basis is an imaginary debate between CS Lewis and Sigmund Freud.

    It is a debate on obviously God but also Love sex and the meaning of life. The tone is basically Freud always vehemently denied the notion of a creator and was the semi-typical science is everything atheist. CS Lewis is the good christian story denied religion up until a certain age then after some very sad times he had his eyes opened one day.

    Anyways the quote goes like this " Lewis attempts to clear up some misunderstandings about pride. First, pride does not mean self respect or self love. Pride means self conceit, the need to feel superior to others. "A proud man is always looking down on things and on people: and of course as long as you are looking down you cannot see something above you he asserts in explaining ones relationship to God"

    He also notes that "pride ... has been the cheif cause of misery in every family and every nation since the world began pride always means enmity.

    Ill end it with that and well see if anyone knows what enmity means, and if you guys agree or disagree. Pride always means enmity.

    Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of.

    Wisdom is the preservation of what has value and the pursuit of what is truth.

    If you look for an end you will find one
    But when you look for the Way, there is no end to find

    "Pied Beauty—"

    Glory be to God for dappled things--
    For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
    For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
    Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings;
    Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough;
    And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim.

    All things counter, original, spare, strange;
    Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
    With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
    He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
    Praise Him."



    Gerard Manley Hopkins

    "Nothing but Christianity will give you the victory.
    Until a man believes in his heart
    that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Master...
    his course through life will be neither safe nor pleasant.
    My only regret is that I was so long blinded by my pleasures,
    my vices and pursuits, and the examples of others
    that I was kept from seeing, admiring,
    and adoring the marvelous light of the gospel."

    (Francis Scott Key, author of the words of the national anthem, USA)

    ‘Behold, Thou art at
    hand and deliverest us from our wretched wanderings and
    placest us in Thy way and dost comfort us and say, ‘Run, I
    will carry you; yea, I will bring you through; there also will
    I carry you.'--Augustine
