Things I Wish I Had Said *

{ * but I’m glad someone did!}

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.  A chastity or honesty or mercy which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions.”

 C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) ~ Irish novelist and theologian

Oh, Mr. Lewis, how you make me think…


“One of the keys to a deeper spiritual life is to never defend ourselves.”

A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) ~ American pastor and author



“You cannot be too small for God to use, but you can be too big.”

Nelle Wilson Reagan (1883-1962) ~ mother of President Ronald Reagan

Humility.  It’s more important than we think.


“I prefer the Bible to any other book.  There is enough there to satisfy the most ardent thirst for knowledge, to open the way to true wisdom, and to teach the only road to salvation and eternal happiness.  It is not above human comprehension, and is sufficient to satisfy all human desires.”

Robert E. Lee (1807-1870) ~ American military officer, Commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia (1862-1865)

Well spoken, General.


“All my career, all I have ever really done, all I have ever accomplished, is to talk about the accomplishments of others.  We can’t all be heroes.  Somebody has to stand on the curb and applaud as the parade goes by.”

Vin Scully (1927-  ) ~ American sportscaster, announcer for the L.A. Dodgers

Well, there are many different kinds of hero, Mr Scully.  Sometimes the heroes are the ones who applaud.


“Pray with honest fervor and simple faith.”

Horatius Bonar (1808-1889) ~ Scottish clergyman and poet

God asks for nothing else.


“I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.”

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) ~ German-American theoretical physicist

Read your Bibles, people!
