I have been nominated for the Three Quotation Challenge. Normally I do not participate in awards and challenges, but this one just seemed like fun. It may seem easy to come up with three meaningful sayings to share with you, and it is. Yet to choose only three is very difficult. I hope you enjoy them:
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape? If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” -J.R.R. Tolkien
“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” -C. S. Lewis
“Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. The gospel is not a way to get people to heaven; it is a way to get people to God. It’s a way of overcoming every obstacle to everlasting joy in God. If we don’t want God above all things, we have not been converted by the gospel.” -John Piper
