“The Physics of the Quest / It’s Crazy Not to Believe in Miracles”


“I’ve come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call ‘The Physics of the Quest’ — a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum.  And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this:  ‘If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself …  then truth will not be withheld from you.’  Or so I’ve come to believe.”    (Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love)



“No one’s life should be rooted in fear.  We are born for wonder, for joy, for hope, for love, to marvel at the mystery of existence, to be ravished by the beauty of the world, to seek truth and meaning, to acquire wisdom, and by our treatment of others to brighten the corner where we are.”   (Dean Koontz, Life Expectancy)



“There’s no limit to what you can dream.  You expect the unexpected, you believe in magic, in fairy tales, and in possibilities.  Then you grow older and that innocence is shattered and somewhere along the way the reality of life gets in the way and you’re hit by the realization that you can’t be all you wanted to be, you just might have to settle for a little bit less.”   (Cecelia Ahern)



“Trusting God completely means having faith that He knows what is best for your life. You expect Him to keep His promises, help you with problems, and do the impossible when necessary.”   (Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life:  What on Earth Am I Here For?)



“Good things aren’t supposed to just fall into your lap.  God is very generous, but He expects you to do your part first.”   (Audrey Hepburn)



“It is just crazy not to believe in the miracles you sit around waiting to happen.”   (Robert Brault)
