another quotatious tribute...


When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability.... To be alive is to be vulnerable.


We can't take any credit for our talents. It's how we use them that counts.


Truth is eternal. Knowledge is changeable. It is disastrous to confuse them.


That's the way things come clear. All of a sudden. And then you realize how obvious they've been all along.


I do not think that I will ever reach a stage when I will say, "This is what I believe. Finished." What I believe is alive ... and open to growth.


In the evening of life we shall be judged on love, and not one of us is going to come off very well, and were it not for my absolute faith in the loving forgiveness of my Lord I could not call on him to come.

- Madeleine L'Engle, (November 29, 1918 – September 6, 2007)

I didn't know she died yesterday. That makes me really sad. I love her books.

I didn't hear about it until today myself. Which is probably good, because I can only take one role model a day dying.
