"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
"The best news is that even when God says no, it’s a yes. It is a yes to better and greater and more. It may seem like the end of the world when the door closes, but He has still said yes to an open one. Behind every ‘thou shalt not,’ there is a God leading you to a ‘that you may.’"
