A few of my favorite quotes

  • “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important” (C. S. Lewis).
  • “If only there were evil people somewhere, insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn).
  • “Atheism is the most daring of all dogmas, for it is the assertion of a universal negative” (G.K. Chesterton).
  • “If the universe is not governed by an absolute goodness, then all of our efforts in the long run are hopeless” (C.S. Lewis).
  • “God is good but God is not safe. God is good and terrifying at the same time” (C. S. Lewis).
  • “One of the great attractions of Christianity to me is its sheer absurdity” (Malcolm Muggeridge).
  • “I have taken my good deeds and bad deeds and thrown them together in a heap, and fled from them both to Christ, and in him I have peace.” (David Dickson).
  • “After each failure, ask forgiveness, pick yourself up, and try again. Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself but just this power of always trying again.” (C. S. Lewis).

  1. Tim Shey says:

    “The wisdom of this world is precious in the eye of the world; and the wisdom of God in His poor, weak, despised earthen vessels is still foolishness with them; but the Lord so orders it, that He still justifies his despised wisdom in his despised vessels, and makes the wisdom of the world appear foolish to all the single and uprighthearted, who thirst after and wait for the revelation of His truth.”

    –Isaac Penington
