I have a new Blog.
It's for a new journey I've not long started.
You can find it here.
the random musings of a real life hobbit... Now, where did I put that ring?....
"All religious and political systems, Right and Left alike, are the work of human beings. Abba's children will not sell their birthright for any mess of pottage, conservative or liberal. They hold fast to their freedom in Christ to live the gospel-uncontaminated by cultural dreck, political flotsam, and the filigreed hypocrisies of bullying religion." - Brennan Manning
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." ~ Albert Einstein
"To disagree with three-fourths of the British public on all points is one of the first elements of sanity." ~ Oscar Wilde
It is not economical to go to bed early to save the candles if the result is twins. ~Chinese Proverb
"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life." - Robert Louis Stevenson
"Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow." - Mahatma Gandhi
"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein"Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory." - Sir Thomas Beecham

"If you want to know what a man is really like, take notice of how he acts when he loses money." - Simone Weil
"Economy is half the battle of life; it is not so hard to earn money as to spend it well." - C. H. Spurgeon
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. I Corinthians 13:4-8
"Why love if losing hurts so much? We love to know that we are not alone." - C. S. Lewis
"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference." - Elie Wiesel (Oct. 1986)
"To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved." - George MacDonald
"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant." - Martin Luther King jr
"It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for themÉ. Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say." - Thomas Merton
""There are two kinds of people; those that finish what they start, and so on..." Robert Byrne
"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." --Galileo Galilei
