I would rather live my life…

there is a God and die to find out that
there isn’t, than to live my life as though
there is no God and die to find out there is.

When we cease to believe

dag-hammarskjoldGod does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.

–Dag Hammarskjold
