I started taking quotes seriously around Christmas 2005. I was in Thailand on my own and apart from my new Thai friends my books were the only things to keep me company. I found that a few good quotes to ponder through the day would keep my mind focussed

Today, there are two quotes that are on the back of my bedroom door. Both came from the same book by Francis Schaeffer. One is his own, the other from Martin Luther. They serve to help remind me of some of my duties.

“There is nothing more ugly than an orthodoxy without understanding or compassion.” – F. Schaeffer

“Where the battle rages there the loyalty of the soldier is proved.” – M. Luther
