i’ve been tagged by my “seoul sister” jj, from Christian, Gay and Confused.
So i’m supposed to give five of my favorite quotes. Here they are:
1. Be true! be true! be true! If you don’t make your worst be known, at least let some hint be known from which your worst may be inferred.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne from the Scarlett Letter
2. Don’t listen to friends when the Friend inside you says “do this”.
If I had to choose a quote to wear as a tatoo, this one would be high up in the runnings. Not because i’d want others to see it, but because i’d want to remember it.
3. The Enemy wants him, in the end, to be so free from any bias in his own favour that he can rejoice in his own talents as frankly and gratefully as in his neighbour’s talents–or in a sunrise, an elephant, or a waterfall.
-Screwtape, in The Screwtape Letters by
4. Water, is taught by thirst.
5. It is finished.
-Jesus of Nazareth
i still don’t have a full grip on how those words affect me. Nonetheless, i’m going to stick to that one as my fav.
