I may categorize these later.  For now, here are some of my favorites…

“I do not talk things, sir, I talk the meaning of things. I sit here and know I’m alive.”
–Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
–C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

“Well my gosh, son.”
–Dick Pons, Middle School Football Coach

“What this world needs is not another sign-waving super saint who’s better than you, another ear-pleasing candy man afraid of the truth, another prophet in an Armani suit. What this world needs is a Savior…”
–Casting Crowns, “What This World Needs”

There is no progress, no revelation of ages, in the history of knowledge, but at most a continuous and sublime recapitulation…I am He who is, said the God of the Jews.

–Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

(While Ethan was getting his hair cut at a BUSY Jelly Beans…)
I asked the lady to make it a little more even in the back… Elise blurts, (loudly), “Well, at least it doesn’t look as bad as my Mom’s hair did the last time she got hers cut! I told her she had a bald spot in the back!” (Thanks Sweetie :o)
