The higher animals are in a sense drawn into Man when he loves them and makes them (as he does) much more nearly human than they would otherwise be.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.
Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not. Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.
Faith is the art of holding on to things your justification has once accepted, despite your changing moods. We must lay before Him what is in us, not what ought to be in us. Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
In nature’s economy, the currency is not money, it is life.
