To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

Some churches concoct a hash from ingredients like patriotism, moralism, cultural values (like materialism and the quest for the perfect “high”), with some wisdom from “celebrities” mixed with selected Bible verses, and then they serve this hash as “Christianity”; that hash panders to people’s tastes and inflates “church attendance” statistics, though the hash is far from real Christianity and leaves people’s souls malnourished.
George G. Hunter III
There is a great deal of difference between believing something still and believing it again.
W. H. Auden
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
