Food for Thought

Filed under: — jen d @ 10:43 am

Since I am obvioulsy finding it difficult to post any amazing, astounding, “really deep” thoughts of my own these days, I’ve decided to exploit other people’s. Here are two bites I came across recently that got me thinking…

For those looking for a spiritual reality check:

“As long as man mistrusts his Creator he will in his anxiety for himself and his goods be unable to do anything in all his service of others but serve himself.”

    -From Christ and Culture by H. Richard Niebuhr, Chapter 5, Section III. “Dualism in Luther and Modern Times”

And for those more literary types looking for kindling:

“If I’m going to set the literary world on fire, the only way to do it is to rub one word against another.”

    -From Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner

Buon appetito.
