Recent Quotes

Winifred, never confuse efficiency with a liver complaint.
George Banks, from Mary Poppins 

The little choices we must make
Will chart the course of life we take;
We either choose the path of light,
Or wander off in darkest night.
D. De Haan

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
G. K. Chesterton

Two glad Services are ours
Both the Master loves to bless
First we serve with all our powers
Then with all our helplessness

These lines of Charles Fox have rung in my head this last fortnight - & they link on with the wonderful words "weak with Him" - for the world's salvation was not wrought out by the three years in which He went about doing good, but in the three hours of darkness in which He hung stripped & nailed, in utter exhaustion of spirit, soul & body, til His heart broke. So little wonder for us, if the price of power is weakness.
I. Lilias Trotter
