Sunday Quotes: The Ones With Questions

“I don’t think we give enough credit to the ones with questions. The questions aren’t the threat—it’s the alternative to growing numb and complacent, the specter of a stalled-out journey, the encroaching quiet desperation that terrified Thoreau, or the silence of one’s true self out of fear or a need to belong.

Blessed are the wanderers with the courage to live into the questions…sooner or later, there’s is the answer.”

Sarah Bessey ; Out of Sorts

Sunday Quotes: Beyond the Desert

“Beyond the desert of criticism, we wish to be called again…the same passion which leads us away from God can also lead us back to God and to our true selves.”

Richard Rohr, as cited by Sarah Bessey

Sunday Quotes: What Stories Are For

“That’s what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can’t remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story.”

Tim O’Brien; The Things They Carried
