The Quote Challenge Part Two // Nonfiction

I found my old notebook (which I had thought I’d lost) behind my bed when I was cleaning up my room on Christmas Eve. This was very exciting, naturally, and made me very happy. This notebook was also the repository of lots of quotes from some various nonfiction I’d been reading before I lost it… So. Here we are, with more pretty quotes!

To quickly reiterate the rules which I’m not following:

  • Thank the person who nominated you (thanks again, Aberdeen!)
  • Post a new quote everyday for 3 consecutive days.
  • Nominate 3 new bloggers every day.

So, on with the quotes.

I love C.S. Lewis so much. He just has a way of explaining things, to make you think about them from a new angle, in a new light. And this is so true – when you have a real friendship with someone, it’s sort of in the face of a society or ideology – you’re friends because you have something in common, and that something sets you apart, even if just a little bit.

This one is from Don’t Waste Your Life. Piper’s books are always good, and he’s influenced my theology a lot, especially as regards worship. 

This may be a book on marriage, but it’s much more than that. It’s a call to glory; a call to love others with the radical, sacrificial love of Christ. I highly recommend it, regardless of whether you’re considering marriage!

Now, for the tagees. I tag BelleRubix Cube, and anyone wearing a short-sleeved shirt (because apparently most of the U.S. is freezing right now?)

  1. I love these quotes! You just made me want to start writing down quotes that I like. I may have to try doing this. 🙂 I’ll have to read “No Ordinary Marriage”. I’m not married yet, but I’ve read a couple books for married couples, and my favorite is “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman. I definitely recommend it, because it can even help those who aren’t married. 🙂

    1. You should try it! I don’t always right them down (sometimes I just highlight it if it’s on my Kindle, since that’s quicker), but it is nice to be able to go back to them.
      Yeah, I think a lot of books on marriage can really apply to anyone, because the concept of sacrificial love is just as real outside marriage as within it!

  2. Yay for finding your notebook, especially one with quotes. It’s like a piece of yourself, almost. And I have to laugh at the “Which I’m not following” phrase–I love how a well-placed word or phrase produces genuine humor. Thank you for treating us to such a great sampling of your reading diet.

  3. Thanks for the tag, and in my defense, I actually got to wear a sweater to church today! 😉 But, in a few days it’s probably be 60 again, so…
    I quite love those quotes!
