Quote Challenge: Day Three

We come to the last day of this little adventure. As Shakespeare would say, “Goodnight! Parting is such sweet sorrow / That I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.” But of course that’s not The Quote.

A reminder of the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you (thank you heartily, gretald!)
  • Nominate 3 new bloggers everyday
  • Post a new quote everyday for 3 consecutive days

I needed a quote that packed a lot of punch, and I already use too many C.S. Lewis quotes, so I went straight to G.K. Chesterton. As always, he did not disappoint.

g-k-chesterton-quote-art-like-morality-consists-in-drawing-the-line

I’ll let that one speak for itself, sans exposition.

Now this is normally the place where I tag other bloggers, but unfortunately I don’t think I am acquainted with any other bloggers who haven’t already been tagged and who would be interested in such a tag. So… I’m tagging anyone who wants to take it! If you have a blog and like quotes, go ahead and take the Quote Challenge. Just remember to leave a comment so I can read about your favorite quotes.

Until next week, fare ye well!

  1. “All God’s revelations are sealed until they are opened to us by obedience. You will never get them open by philosophy or thinking. Immediately you obey, a flash of light comes. Let God’s truth work in you by soaking in it, not by worrying into it. The only way you can get to know is to stop trying to find out and being born again. Obey God in the thing He shows you, and instantly the next thing is opened up. One reads tomes on the Holy Spirit, when one five minutes of drastic obedience would make things as clear as a sunbeam. ‘I suppose I shall understand these things some day!’ You can understand them now. It is not study that does it, but obedience. The tiniest fragment of obedience, and heaven opens and the profoundest truths of God are yours straight away. God will never reveal more truth about Himself until you have obeyed what you know already. Beware of becoming ‘wise and prudent.’”

    –Oswald Chambers
