A chamber can be too small or missing, a wall too thick or thin. The heart's electrical system—its nerves—may go haywire. The muscle can be weak. Holes may occur almost anywhere, in almost any size. Studying heart pathology, one is reminded that the genetic symphony that produces a normal baby is indeed a wondrous and delicate one."

Indeed, I feel that if I lived with them for long, I should have to learn to be...better, or greater, myself.

More importantly, his heart hurt... He wished he hadn't eavesdropped."
Author: Yukako Kabei

Today's Quote

It is a doctrine, as I believe, taught us in Holy Writ, that when a man is saved by divine grace, he is not wholly cleansed from the corruption of his heart. When we believe in Jesus Christ all our sins are pardoned; yet the power of sin, albeit that it is weakened and kept under by the dominion of the new-born nature which God doth infuse into our souls, doth not cease, but still tarrieth in us, and will do so to our dying day."C.H Spurgeon"
Author: Charles H. Spurgeon
