For my bio, um...what to write... How about a quote or 25? And some song lyrics for good measure...

"Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens."
-J.R.R Tolkien

"The written word is sweet succuor to the soul."
-Marshall Brown

" 'Look in thy heart and write' is good counsel for poets; but when a poet looks in his heart he finds many things there besides the actual. That is why, and how, he is a poet."

-Clive Staples "Jack" Lewis

"Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
-Dylan Thomas

Because God's gifts put man's best to shame."

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

"The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God before all."

-Robert Louis Stevenson

"I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen. Not only because I see it but because by it I see everything else."

-C.S. Lewis

"God's goodness hath been great to thee; Let's never a day or night unhallowed pass, But still remember what the Lord hath done."

-William Shakespeare (or Christopher Marlowe, whomever you prefer as the author)

"Life with Christ is an endless hope; without Him, a hopeless end."

-Merv Rosell

If I knew the answer to that I wouldn't be teaching at TCC, now would I?"

-Professor Bob (Sociology)

"Life is just better with shoes."

-Professor A. Milton (Political Science)

"If you fear, cast all your cares on God. The anchor holds."

-Alfred, Lord Tennyson

"Faith is to believe what we do not see. The reward of this faith is to see what we believe."

-St. Augustine

" 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word. Just to rest upon his promise, just to know 'Thus saith the Lord.' "

-Louisa M.R. Stead

"A Christian man is the most free lord of all, subject to none; a Christian man is the most dutiful servant of all and subject to everyone."

-Martin Luther

"Faith, walking in the dark with God, only prays to Him to clasp its hand more tightly."

-Phillips Brooks

"God's preparing His heroes, and when opportunity comes, He can fit them into their place in a moment, and the world will wonder where they came from."

-A.B. Simpson

"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men."
-Willy Wonka

"The poet's route to our emotions lies through our imagination"

-C.S. Lewis

"The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books."

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"The three saddest things are the ill wanting to be well, the poor wanting to be rich, and the constant traveler saying 'anywhere but here'. "

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Postern of Fate:

Pass not beneath, O Caravan,

Or pass not singing. Have you heard

That silence where the birds are dead,

Yet something pipeth like a bird?"

-Flecker

"This is the Hour of Lead-

Remembered, if out lived,

As freezing persons recollect the snow-

First-chill-then stupor-

Then the letting go--"

-Emily Dickinson

"Ensanguining the sky

How heavily it dies

Into the west away;

Past touch and sigh and sound

Not further to be found

How hopeless underground lies the remorseful day."

- John Houseman

"And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."

-Frederik Nietzsche

Song break: Heathcliff, it's me Cathy, I've come home, I'm so cold! Let me in-a-your window. Heathcliff, it's me Cathy, I've come home, I'm so cold! Let me in-a-your-window." Hayley Westenra

Song Break II: You're everywhere, like the rain that's falling. You're everywhere, like the wind that's blowing. You're everywhere, like the sun upon my face, I feel the warmth in Your embrace. You are everywhere.--Third Day

Song Break III: Come, oh come! let us away- Lower, lower every day, Oh, what a joy it is to race Down to find the lowest place. This is the dearest law we know- "It is happy to go low." Sweetest urge and sweetest will, "Let us go down lower still." Hear the summons night and day,calling us to come away. From the heights we leap and flow To the valleys down below. Always answering to the call, to the lowest place of all. Sweetest urge and sweetest pain, to go low and rise again.--Hind's Feet on High Places

Song BreakIV: "When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down; when I was sinking down, sinking down. When I was sinking down, beneath God's righteous frown, Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul. Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.--Alexander Means

Song BreakV: "And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight, The clouds be rolled back as a scroll, The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend. "Even so," It is well with my soul."--Horatio G. Spafford.

Song BreakVI: "I'm only alive with You. I can't get by and I won't get through. So put me in the river, let me say, 'I do'. I'm only alive with You."--Jars of Clay

Song BreakVII: "The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees. The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas. The road was a ribbon of moonlight, over the purple moor, and the highwayman came riding-riding-riding. The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door."--Alfred Toynes and Loreena McKennitt
