By 2010, we as a species were creating more data per day than we did from the beginning of time until 2003. By 2015, 76 exabytes of data will travel across the Internet every year. (Note – An exabyte of data is 500 billion pages of text.)

Every decision is a step toward a destination….

Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.

To know something is to act on it. To act on something is to remember it.

These things feed my faith: epiphanies of beauty in nature, sunburst of grace and forgiveness, the portrait of God I get in Jesus, stirring encounters with people who truly live out their faith.

Meetings with God may include ecstasy and joy, or withdrawal and silence; always they include mystery.

Why do some men reach for the stars and so many others never even look up?
