Sketch of My Blog

Our Journey in Life is more than we allow it to be.
We must all Be Ourselves to really enjoy what's all around us.
Take hold and learn from Life and Others.

I Follow the Way of Jesus.

In the previous post C.S. Lewis wrote that seeking truth you may find comfort in the end, whereas if you seek comfort you just find soft soap, wishful thinking and despair.  He also said that in spite of the fact that humans prefer everything else other than God, He still accepts us.

I want to put those two together and say that seeking truth we find comfort in the end because we are seeking God, and in seeking truth we are showing our preference to God.  It is a winning situation for the human who seeks truth, because you find God and in finding God you will find life.

Thursday - Quote

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair. - C.S. Lewis

[God] is not proud...He will have us even though we have shown that we prefer everything else to Him. - C.S. Lewis    

This is so true.  I can see it so clearly.  Seek truth!

I want to say more, but will leave that for another time.

Quotes for Today

Updated ***

Okay so it took me a while to get back.  Oh well.  Here are some interesting quotes that caught my attention today.  Enjoy!  ( I particularly like the middle one about the book.)

No tyranny is so irksome as petty tyranny: the officious demands of policemen, government clerks, and electromechanical gadgets.
  - Edward Abbey
A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
  - Robertson Davies
Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.

I had to add this one.

Ask yourself whether you are happy and you cease to be so.
  - John Stuart Mill
  - Arthur C. Clarke
