Isn’t it odd how, whatever our faith and belief may be, we sometimes come to the edge of an idea as though we are about to enter something extraordinary and real, but at the last moment we turn our backs and walk away?

Ravi Zacharias in The Grand Weaver

In a world that always wants to do, we hardly know what it is to be.

Ravi Zacharias in The Grand Weaver

To allow God to be God we must follow him for who he is and what he intends, and not for what we want or what we prefer.

Ravi Zacharias in The Grand Weaver

That an ape has hands is far less interesting to the philosopher than the fact that having hands he does next to nothing with them; does not play knuckle-bones or the violin; does not carve marble or carve mutton. The chasm between man and other creatures may have a natural explanation, but it is a chasm.

G.K. Chesterton in Orthodoxy

Man must have just enough faith in himself to have adventures, and just enough doubt of himself to enjoy them.

G.K. Chesterton in Orthodoxy

“I had always believed that the world involved magic:  now I thought that perhaps it involved a magician.  And this pointed to a profound emotion always present and sub-conscious; that this world of ours has some purpose: and if there is a purpose, there is a person.  I had always felt life first as a story; and if there is a story there is a story-teller.”

G.K. Chesterton in Orthodoxy
