          “The weakest possible reason to include anything in a story is: ‘But it actually happened.’”
          -Robert McKee, Story

          I've lost track of the number of "memoir novel" manuscripts I've read that had huge plot holes and/or massive chunks of useless exposition whose presence was explained with the above reasoning.
          “In many ways the evidence of our faith is found in our ability to control our tongue (or our keyboard)."

          “Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.”
          -Ralph Waldo Emerson

            Jim Eliot: He is not a fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

            Originally said by Jesus.


            But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
            Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15 (NIV)
            For this very reason, make every effort by your faith to produce virtue, by virtue knowledge, 6 by knowledge self-control, by self-control steadfastness, by steadfastness godliness, 7 by godliness brotherly affection, and by brotherly affection love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will make you effective and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8 (NIV)

                Now don't say you can't swear off drinking; it's easy. I've done it a thousand times. - W. C. Fields

                How well I remember my first encounter with The Devil's Brew. I happened to stumble across a case of bourbon--and went right on stumbling for several days thereafter. - W. C. Fields

                A woman drove me to drink, and I'll be a son-of-a-gun but I never even wrote to thank her. - W. C. Fields
                Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
                Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
                Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]

                  "Let a discrete channel have the capacity C and a discrete source the entropy per second H.If H ≤ C there exists a coding system such that the output of the source can be transmitted over the channel with an arbitrarily small frequency of errors (or an arbitrarily small equivocation). If H > C it is possible to encode the source so that the equivocation is less than
                  H−C+ǫ where ǫ is arbitrarily small. There is no method of encoding which gives an equivocation less than H−C."

                              “There’s true and false in piety, as in bravery,
                              And just as those whose courage shines the most

                              Don’t make a flashy show of being holy.”

                              • My old suggestion that public offices be filled by drawing lots, as a jury box is filled, was probably more intelligent than I suspected. It has been criticized on the ground that selecting a man at random would probably produce some extremely bad State governors. [...] But I incline to believe that it would be best to choose members of the Legislature quite at random. No matter how stupid they were, they could not be more stupid than the average legislator under the present system. Certainly, they'd be measurably more honest, taking one with another. Finally, there would be the great advantage that all of them had got their jobs unwillingly, and were eager, not to spin out their sessions endlessly, but to get home as soon as possible.
