:"The Christian life can be explained only in terms of Jesus Christ, and if your life as a Christian can still be explained in terms of you -- your personality, your willpower, your gift, your talent, your money, your courage, your scholarship, your dedication, your sacrifice, or you anything -- then although you may have the Christian life, you are not yet living it.”

:"A pure heart is one to which all that is not of God is strange and jarring."

:"It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life"

:"It is well to remember that the entire population of the universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others."

:"Trust means being content when the answer to your question is silence."

:"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart."

:"Being creative is not a single act, but the act of living itself. The creative woman is on fire with imagination, ignited by the certainty of her relationship with a living God and her surety of purpose. She lives in freedom, not measuring herself by the lives around her. She takes calculated risks, understanding the value of going beyond the horizon of the known and coming back to report what she has discovered. She tackles life's challenges with heart, hands and faith. "
