• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

_Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God_.–MATT. iv. 4.
_A man’s life conisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth_.–LUKE xii. 15.

Whate’er God does is well, Whether He gives or takes! And what we from His hand receive Suffices us to live. He takes and gives, while yet He loves us still; Then love His will.
B. SCHMOLCK.
Is that beast better, that hath two or three mountains to graze on, than a little bee, that feeds on dew or manna, and lives upon what falls every morning from the storehouse of heaven, clouds, and providence?
JEREMY TAYLOR.
For myself I am certain that the good of human life cannot lie in the possession of things which for one man to possess is for the rest to lose, but rather in things which all can possess alike, and where one man’s wealth promotes his neighbor’s.
B. SPINOZA.
Every lot is happy to a person who bears it with tranquillity.
BOETHIUS.
