“How busy we can become… and as a result, how empty! We mouth words, but they mean nothing. We find ourselves trafficking in unlived truths.
How easy to fall prey to meaningless talk, cliché-ridden responses, and mindless activities! It was never meant to be that way; but, more often than not, that’s the way it is. To break the habit, solitude is required. The hard work of self-examination on a recurring basis is absolutely essential.”
~ Charles Swindoll – Intimacy with the Almighty
“Make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding.”
