He that is down needs fear no fall;
He that is low, no pride:
He that is humble ever shall
Have God to be his guide.
I am content with what I have.
Little be it or much;
And, Lord, contentment still I crave,
Because Thous savest such.
Fulness to such a burden is,
That go on pilgrimage;
Here little, and hereafter bliss,
Is best from age to age.
John Bunyan, a shepherd in Pilgrim’s Progress (via craigtowens)
All that we call human history — money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery — is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy
C. S. Lewis (via dailydoseofstuf)
