Quoting Again

A couple great quotes I've come across recently:

"The matter is quite simple. The Bible is very easy to understand. But we as Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined. "
- Søren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher, theologian, and ethicist (1813-1855)"

And, from the calendar that sits on my desk:

"He will never fail you, but will help you in all your troubles, and you will find him everywhere."
-Saint Teresa of Avila
