"All goodness and inspiration comes from God. The assumption or expectation, that goodness will always come to us automatically, just because of the special person we think we are, comes from the devil.”
We can spend a lifetime reading books that contain commentaries written by philosophers and theologians about religion. Enough already! I do not desire to read any more commentaries on the real thing. I want the real thing!
- Reverend Bob (from the book 'Life Goes On)
“Vice is a creature of such awful mien
That to be hated needs but to be seen
But seen too oft, familiar with her face
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.”
MY FAVORITE POEM FROM UNIVERSITY DAYS
For teachers - "The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts“ - C.S. Lewis (The Abolition of Man” 1943)
