Everybody dies, but not everyone has lived."

- Helen Keller

- C. S. Lewis

"They who navigate little streams and shallow creeks, know but little of the God of tempests; but they who "Do business in great waters," these see his "wonders in the deep."

Just don´t read it; do it!"

"To risk reputation and affection for the truth's sake is so demanding that to do it constantly you will need a degree of moral principle that only the Spirit of God can work in you. Do not turn your back like a coward, but play the man. Follow boldly in your Master's steps, for He has made this rough journey before you."

"23  Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.

 24  Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

 25  Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

 26  In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;

 27  In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

 28  Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches."
- Paul, 2 Corinthians 11
