God is so much bigger, so far beyond our time-encased, air/food/sleep-dependent lives."

Dave wore a designer sports jacket and chic designer jeans; not at all what you would expect from an FBI agent's undercover expense budget. His wife (or whoever she was), Julia, was a conservative dresser, with more of what you would expect an FBI agent to be wearing. She had mousy brown hair, spoke in nasal tones, and was somewhat frumpy; not much to look at. They went together about as well as Brad Pitt and a den mother from Davenport Iowa."
Author: Kenneth Eade

The concept of Jate with a guy was fresh turf and Rocher regarded him with an especially deranged sparkle in her eyes."I could be a dude," she said."

Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you'll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will be."
Author: Steve Maraboli
