Words of Hope & Warning

Previous

We must learn;

Not to possess the truth...

 but... to be possessed by the truth.



The Book of Acts is the only unfinished book in the

New Testament  it is  still waiting to be written.  What is your story this 

too will be included 


"Books are precious things, but more than that, they are the strong backbone of civilization.  They are the thread upon which it all hangs, and they can save us when all else is lost."


"Books are the building blocks of civilization, for without the written word,  man knows nothing beyond what occurs during his own brief years and, perhaps, in a few tales his parents tell him.  Without books, we would never have known of Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, or Hannibal.  George Washington would have been forgotten and Abraham Lincoln a vague memory.


"When the Saxons landed in England and discovered Roman ruins, they believed them the work of giants.  For without books there is no history; without books there would be no Greece, no Rome, no Babylon, and no Egypt.  The pyramids would stand, and the Parthenon and many scattered ruins would slowly fall before the years.  Not understanding what they were, man would make no effort to preserve them.


"Without books we should very likely be a still-primitive people living in the shadow of traditions that faded with years until only a blur remained, and different memories would remember the past in different ways.  A parent or a teacher has only his lifetime; a good book can teach forever."
