Mitch Albom

A few weeks ago, I was given a Kindle, for Mother's Day. Since then, I have been obsessed with reading a wide variety of books, many I had been meaning to read but simply hadn't gotten the chance. My local library has an awesome e-book availability, and I've enjoyed the books I've been able to read.

Here are some quotes I found personally inspiring or thought provoking from Have a Little Faith: A True Story.

"My thoughts are not your thoughts Neither are your ways my ways For as the heavens are higher than the earth So are my ways higher than your way And my thoughts higher than your thoughts"

"Many great minds have set out to disprove God's existence. Sometimes, they retreat to the opposite view. C. S. Lewis, who wrote so eloquently of faith, initially wrestled with the very concept of God and called himself "the most dejected and reluctant convert in all of England." Louis Pasteur, the great scientist, tried to disprove a divine existence through facts and research; in the end, the grand design of man convinced him otherwise."

"It is far more comforting to think God listened and said no, than to think that nobody's out there."

"Thank you, Lord, for returning my soul to me." When you start that way, the rest of the day is a bonus."

"What profits a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?"

"But it's not me against the other guy. It's God measuring you against you."
