The way to hunt is for as long as you live against as long as there is such and such an animal; just as the way to paint is as long as there is you and colors and canvas, and to write as long as you can live and there is pencil and paper or ink or any machine to do it with, or anything you care to write about, and you feel a fool, and you are a fool, to do it any other way. – Ernest Hemingway

I find that writing is a most salutary occupation at a time like this, and I spend many hours each day playing with sentences. I regard each sentence as a little wheel, and my ambition lately has been to gather several hundred of them together at once and to fit them all end to end, with the cogs interlocking, like gears, but each wheel a different size, each turning at a different speed. Now and again I try to put a really big one right next to a very small one in such a way that the big one, turning slowly, will make the small one spin so fast that it hums. Very tricky, that. – Roald Dahl

The Lord himself, by the very order of creation, has demonstrated that he created all things for the sake of man. Nor is it unimportant to observe that he divided the formation of the world into six days, though it had been in no respect more difficult to complete the whole work, in all its parts, in one moment, than by a gradual progression. But he was pleased to display his providence and paternal care towards us in this: that before he formed man, he provided whatever he foresaw would be useful and salutary to him. How ungrateful then, were it to doubt whether we are cared for by this most excellent parent who we see cared for us even before we were born. How impious were it to tremble and distrust lest we should one day be abandoned in our necessity by that kindness, which antecedent to our existence, displayed itself in a complete supply of all good things. Moreover, Moses tells us that everything which the world contains is liberally placed at our disposal. This God certainly did not that he might dilute us with an empty form of donation. Nothing therefore, which concerns our safety will ever be wanting. To conclude in one word, as often as we call God the Creator of heaven and earth, let us remember that the distribution of all the things which he created are in his hand and power. But that we are his sons whom he has undertaken to nourish and bring up in allegiance to him. That we may expect the substance of all good from him alone. And have full hope that he will never suffer us to be in want of things necessary to salvation, so as to leave us dependent on some other source. That in everything we desire we may address our prayers to him. And in every benefit we receive acknowledge his hand. And give him thanks. That thus allured by his great goodness and beneficence, we may study with our whole heart to love and serve him. – John Calvin

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

Beautiful people do not just happen. – Elisabeth Kubler Ross
