Love can forbear, and love can forgive... But love can never be reconciled to an unlovely object... He (the lord) can never therefore be reconciled to your sin, because sin itself is incapable of being altered; but He may be reconciled to your person because that may be restored.
TRAHERNE, Centuries of Meditation, II, 30

"the warrior of light unwittingly take a false step and plunges into the abyss.
Ghosts frighten him and solitude torments him. His aim had been to fight the good fight, and never had he imagined that this would happen to him, but it did. Shrouded in darkness, he makes contact with his master.
'Master, i have fallen into the abyss,' he says. 'the waters are deep and dark.'
'Remember one thing,' replies his master. 'you do not drown simply by plunging into the water, you only drown if you stay beneath the surface.'
And the warrior uses all his strength to escape rom his predicament."
"Before making any important decision - declaring a war, moving with companions to another plain, choosing a field in which to sow seed - the warrior asks himself: 'how will this affect the fifth generation of my descendants?'
A warrior knows that everything a person does has enduring consequences and needs to understand what kind of world he is leaving behind for that fifth generation."
From Manual of the Warrior of Light - Paulo Coelho

It was Plato who said that all philosophy begins with wonder. Wonder, to Plato, was that impulse that probed, investigated, and sought out explanations.

You know, the most amazing thing happened to me tonight. I was coming here, on the way to the lecture, and I came in through the parking lot. And you won't believe what happened. I saw a car with the license plate ARW 357! Can you imagine? Of all the millions of license plates in the state, what was the chance that I would see that particular one tonight? Amazing!

This sounds silly considering the source but if you think about it...it can turn on a light in your head that you may be able to relate to...
This is from the Muppet Christmas Carol where the ghost of christmas past shows scrooge his monotonous childhood that seems to have just wasted away in a single lonely room...

"Life is a comedy for those who think; a tragedy for those who feel" -chinese proverb

In fact Jesus talks of such a person. He speaks of a merchant looking for a precious pearl who, when he found the pearl of great price, sold all he had previously considered worthwhile in order to buy it. That pearl of great price, pragmatically speaking, is that search for the heart to find its complete fulfillment.

In The End of Christendom Malcolm Muggeridge stated it powerfully::The world's way of responding to intimations of decay is to engage equally in idiot hopes and idiot despair. On the one hand some new policy or discovery is confidently expected to put everything to rights: a new fuel, a new drug, detente, world government. On the other, some disaster is as confidently expected to prove our undoing. Capitalism will break down. Fuel will run out. Plutonium will lay us low. Atomic waste will kill us off.

G. K. Chesterton “They have invented a phrase, a phrase that is a black and white contradiction in two words—‘free love’—as if a lover ever had been, or ever could be, free. It is the nature of love to bind itself, and the institution of marriage merely paid the average man the compliment of taking him at his word.” 2
G. K. Chesterton
The playwright Thornton Wilder said it well: “I didn’t marry you because you were perfect. I didn’t even marry you because I loved you. I married you because you gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults. And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect people got married and it was the promise that made the marriage. And when our children were growing up, it wasn’t a house that protected them; and it wasn’t our love that protected them—it was that promise.” 3
This hits hard for me.
Chivalry in love has nothing to do with the sweetness of the appearance. It has everything to do with the tenderness of a heart determined to serve. That is the first hard lesson to learn. You do not act under the impetus of charm but out of a commitment to make someone’s life the joy you want it to be. In the early days of marriage, joy precedes the act. Tragically, as the years go by joy can be severed from the act until finally, the act itself is no more. This ought not to be. Over time it is the companionship that brings joy, and service is the natural outworking of the joy of commitment. Failure to act kills it.
No, I am not telling you how to live your life. I do believe these truths are real.
