When a figure is loved for their deeds, their conquests, their heroism, their goodness, their love of the people, these are easy enough to destroy...

And to do nothing allows them to continue to grow at their natural pace, inexoribly, till this love becomes a wide and silent adoration."

510. "A story is alive, as you and I are. It is rounded by muscle and sinew. Rushed with blood. Layered with skin, both rough and smooth. At its core lies soft marrow of hard, white bone. A story beats with the heart of every person who has ever strained ears to listen. On the breath of the storyteller, it soars. Until its images and deeds become so real you can see them in the air, shimmering like oases on the horizon line. A story can fly like a bee, so straight and swift you catch only the hum of its passing. Or move so slowly it seems motionless, curled in upon itself like a snake in the sun. It can vanish like smoke before the wind. Linger like perfume in the nose. Change with every telling, yet always remain the same."
Author: Cameron Dokey

Author: Charles H. Spurgeon

Author: Charles R. Swindoll

"For whoever does not truly have God within themselves, but must constantly receive him in one external thing after another, seeking God in diverse ways, whether by particular works, people or places, such a person does not possess God.
