To the ill-considered hopes of the last two centuries, which have reduced us to insignificance and brought us to the brink of nuclear and non-nuclear death, we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Refusing to define "life," "man," or "woman," doesn't begin overnight but is a persistent suppression of truth until the lie becomes your inverted truth. - Dustin Benge

You Can Run To It
“On the Edge of Something” Jamie Cullum
Read It or Weep
Written in the 1940’s, but intensely prophetic for our day. Best read after reading the previous two books of the “Ransom Trilogy”, but unnecessary with just a bit of background reading. Lewis wrote “The Inner Ring” and the “The Abolition of Man” around the same time. Read it!
