Memes and Aphorisms

On “Soupy”, for those who read it, there was a whole slide of memes and sayings which I thought might be worth saving. Here they are…

“We may be surprised at the people we find in Heaven. God has a soft spot for sinners. His standards are quite low.” Desmond Tutu.

“At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.” Paul Tournier.

“Like a handful of dust thrown into the sea are the sins of all humankind compared with the mercy and providence of God.” Isaac the Syrian.

“We read to know we are not alone.” C S Lewis.

I might add more as time goes on, but I doubt it. Susan Poer Mower departed this life this last year and it was for her that ‘Soupy’ was originally written and from whom many of the early stumbling attempts grew. Thank you.
