interesting thoughts...

...It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power... thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through Christ Jesus.

“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?” Mo had said. “As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells... and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower... both strange and familiar.” -- Inkspell (Cornelia Funke)
