You'll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut. Dr. Seuss“Bravery is born in the quite and ordinary moments long before it’s seen by anyone else.” ~ Sarah Bessey

“Relax.  You will become an adult.  You will figure out your career.  You will find someone who loves you.  You have a whole lifetime, time takes time.” ~ Johanna de Silentio

“I learned vulnerability is a bit like those Russian nesting dolls, the ones that get smaller and smaller in size when you twist the top off and pull another one out.  In the end, you’re left with the tiniest dull, that one nugget.  No more layers to take off.  Nothing left but a surprise, the surprise of finding out the littlest doll is the most solid of them all.  It doesn’t hide inside of itself.” ~ Hannah Brencher

“Nothing about my birth – or yours – was random or accidental.  I was born for this time – and so were you.  We were each chosen for a particular, cosmically important task that can be done by no one else.” ~ Christine Caine

“Our time frames are not in touch with ultimate reality.  Our perspective on timing compared with God’s is analogous to a two-year-old’s with an adult’s.  God has good reasons for making us wait a long time to see some prayers answered.” ~ Tim Keller

“Don’t you love New York in the fall?  It makes me want to buy school supplies.  I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” ~ Nora Ephron

“Habits matter because: habits are the spine of our self-control.  You change your life when you change what you do everyday.  Habits are small gears that leverage your life — and the habit of hope can resuscitate anything.” ~ Ann Voskamp

“I don’t understand it any more than you do, but one thing I’ve learned is that you don’t have to understand things for them to be.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle
