Three Quotes

These don’t really have anything to do with one another, they’re just three quotes that have caught my eyes/ears recently & have been on my mind, so I post them…

“The middle way that some in this chamber (Congress) have been seeking is no way at all. If we finally fail in this great & glorious contest, it will be by bewildering ourselves in groping for the middle way!”
– John Adams –
I don’t know the date on this one. It just struck me in the John Adams movie so much I had to write it down verbatim. We did get to see the whole thing, BTW. Excellent!!! There is a scene or two in it, though, so don’t watch it with the children the first time.

“Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny! Compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us. Iran… they spend 1/100th of what we spend on military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance.”

“We can see God in exceptional things, but it requires the growth of spiritual discipline to see God in every detail. Never believe that the so-called random events of life are anything less than God’s appointed order…
Beware of being obsessed with consistency to your own convictions instead of being devoted to God. If you are a saint & say, ‘I will never do this or that,’ in all probability this will be exactly what God will require of you… (Love that!! So true!)
The important consistency in a saint is not to principle but to the divine life.”
– Oswald Chambers –
