A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, vanity, humility, good, hope, victory, help, self, enlightenment, and holiness

In the battle with vanity, cling to the Gospel and example of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.  Do not rely on yourself, but on the Lord, not only in important matters, but even in seemingly insignificant ones.  Without the Lord, we are unable to do anything truly good for ourselves, and even that which initially seems good will turn out to be harmful if we haven't asked the Lord for help or prayed about it.

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on gorgeous geniuses, holiness, longing, change, and balance

Dear Gorgeous Genius...

Your holiest pain comes from your yearning to change yourself in the exact way you'd like the world around you to change....

Your sweet spot is in between the true believers and the scoffing skeptics....

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on holiness, population, and irresistable

How little people know who think that holiness is dull. When one meets the real thing...it is irresistible. If even 10 percent of the world’s population had it, would not the whole world be converted and happy before the year’s end?

A Quote by M. Scott Peck on christianity, sacrament, moment, life, sacred, holiness, and sainthood

Some Catholics have a concept I very much admire: the Sacrament of the Present Moment. It suggests that every moment of our lives is sacred, and that we should make of each moment a sacrament. Were we to do this we would think of the entire world as diffused with holiness. Wherever we might be would be a holy place for us, and we would see the holy, even sainthood, in everyone we encounter.

A Quote by Annie Dillard on mystery, holiness, and consciousness

We live in all we seek.  The hidden shows up in too-plain sight.  It lives captive on the face of the obvious - the people, events, and things of the day - to which we as sophisticated children have long since become oblivious.  What a hideout: Holiness lies spread and borne over the surface of time and stuff like color.

Annie Dillard (nee Doak) (1945 -)
