friday's quotes of the week

Heard, read, or said by me this week:

"Mom, when I get married, I'm not going to marry a weirdo."

"That's good. What kind of a girl ARE you going to marry?"

"One like you, a girl who tells jokes."

Son to Mom

Grandson, feeling his throat and pointing, "I don't have one of those."

Man at garage sale, "That is called a goiter."

"Oh, " said pensively, "I don't have one."

Grandson to neighbor

"There is no such thing as fun for the whole family."

Jerry Seinfeld

"America is a land of wonders, in which everything is in constant motion and every change seems an improvement...No natural boundry seems to be set to the efforts of man; and in his eyes what is not yet done is is only what he has not yet attempted to do."

Alex de Tocqueville

"Even so, our central duty in such times is not speculation, however responsible that speculation might be. We are not called to metaphysics in the first place. True and undefiled religion is this—to visit widows and orphans in their affliction. Everyone who has seen the images of this past week has to have wondered what they can do. We are coordinating with brothers and sisters in that region of the country, and any gifts you give designated for hurricane relief will go directly to those who desperately need it. This too is spiritual worship. Because a cup of cold water given in the name of Jesus is also an act of God."

Doug Wilson
