wise men once said

Sometimes I wonder where Ideas come from. We don't always search them out, it's almost as if they search us out. But what I do know is that when an Idea (good or bad!) takes hold of your mind, you learn. When that Idea travels from your mind to your heart, you change. This is why the worst possible thing in my opinion is to be close-minded. Opening your mind to new and different Ideas does not automatically accept that they are right or good, it is simply keeping an open mind to Learning and Changing.
This mindset has made me an avid collector of other men's thoughts and quotes. Here are a few that have struck my mind...

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.
-C. S. Lewis

If you can't fly, run!
If you can't run, walk!
If you can't walk, crawl!
But by all means, don't stop moving!"
-Martin Luther King Jr.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.
-Jim Elliot

Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
-C. S. Lewis

An explanation of cause is not a justification by reason.
-C. S. Lewis
