My Happiness

My hope for humanity:
"What can we say about a society that believes God is dead but Elvis is alive? "

To my mom:
"It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more 'manhood' to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.” -Alex Karras

About My Saviour:

"He changed sunset into sunrise." ~Clement of Alexandria

"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
C. S. Lewis
