"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Great Dorothy Sayers Quote

“In this world there is a view that’s called total tolerance, but in hell it’s called despair. It’s the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, enjoys nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, but remains alive. Why? Because there’s nothing for which it could die.”

Dorothy Sayers (1893-1957)

I heard this in a fantastic Tim Keller sermon the other day called “A Reason For Living.” Check it out here.
