Strength in Quotes with Noel Culbertson


It's no secret in my house that I'm a bit of a quote junkie. I love a quote that can express large truths in a simple and timeless style. Much like the little one who has seen a film so many times, they cannot keep themselves from quoting every line while they watch,  I am a hopeless repeater of my favorite quotes and stories. My mom has said I have an "incredible retention for useless information", and recently at a high school graduation I was lovingly elbowed by my neighbor for finishing each quote in one of the speeches. As impractical as my mental file cabinet of quotes can be, I have found them often to be mileposts along life's road. Little bits of timeless truth that nudge and guide and sometimes even prod me along the path I'm meant to follow. As it was well put by one of my favorite authors, G.K. Chesterton, "Wit is a sword; it is meant to make people feel the point as well as see it."

As my summer winds down into bright harvest sunsets and chilly fall mornings, I will be devouring a stack good books and building up my arsenal of quotable quotes to mark the miles of the years to come.

“Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. 
It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds 
rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a Divine mystery, or a waterfall.”
Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
