I bought this book as tool to help me in forming classes and sermons, but I've found myself just reading it and enjoying it!

If you want a book with some good, wise, thought-provoking quotes, go grab this book!

Some samples:

"If Christ is risen, nothing else matters. And if Christ is not risen - nothing else matters." - Jaroslav Pelikan

"To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong admit it,
Whenever you're right, shut up."

- Ogden Nash (My wife cheered when I read this to her.)

"I must not think it strange if God takes in youth those whom I would have kept on earth until they were older. God is peopling eternity, and I must not restrict him to old men and women."
- Jim Elliot (martyred at age 29 in South America.) (This quote really makes sense to me when thinking about my teenage friend Sam Thomsen who died in a tornado last year. God just wanted him in heaven!)

I like those quotes; especially the one about God not wanting just old men and women in heaven.

Its about time you posted something! I kept checking your blog and finding nothing new since April 1. I like the quotes. I am learning very quickly in my early days of being married that you always "shut-up" when you (the guy) are right!
