Every saved person this side of heaven owes the gospel to every lost person this side of hell. We owe Christ to the world—to the last person and to the greatest person, to the richest person and to the poorest person, to the best person and to the worst person. We are in debt to the nations.
David Platt (via hailey-anne)
You endure because you have the desire to be the person that you want to be. You do not endure simply to finish those things that you can see now. You endure for the reality of Life itself
Jean Marco Crisostomo
I am a wretch, but I love Thee. If Thou sendest me to hell, I shall love Thee there, and from there I shall cry out that I love Thee forever and ever…
Dmitri Karamazov, The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.
Henry Miller (via loveyourchaos)
Charles Bukowski (via lifeofliterature)
We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
Frederick Keonig (via nathanielswhite)
The artist must be somewhat opposed to society — against received knowledge. He must be prepared to explore strange alleyways, to rebuke accepted wisdom, to confuse and challenge and reconstruct new patterns. The artist is by nature a semi-outlaw.
-Devlan ~James Michener, The Novel
