Running with scissors since 1970-something... Stay whimsical. Be incredible. It's your story.

The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance. – C.H. Spurgeon


True and substantial wisdom principally consists of two parts, the knowledge of God and the knowledge of ourselves. – John Calvin


If you lack knowledge, go to school. If you lack wisdom, get on your knees. – Vance Havner


It is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability, that counts. – Corrie Ten Boom


Never object to the intense sensitivity of the Spirit of God in you when He is instructing you down to the smallest detail. – Oswald Chambers


Never make a point at the expense of making a difference. – Andy Stanley


Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been. – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest


Wisdom is the art of living skillfully in whatever actual conditions we find ourselves. – Eugene H. Peterson


Wisdom is not primarily knowing the truth, although it certainly includes that; it is skill in living. For, what good is truth if we don’t know how to live it? What good is an intention if we can’t sustain it? – Eugene H. Peterson
