Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?
The happy Union of these States is a wonder; their Constitution a miracle; their example the hope of Liberty throughout the world.
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.
The Resurrection miracle is nothing to you and me if it is only an event of eighteen centuries bygone. Unless we can live the immortal life — unless we can receive God to his own home in these hearts of ours — the texts are nothing to us unless these daily lives illustrate them.
After being raised as an evangelical Christian, I for years assumed that Christianity was the default — there were Christians, and then there were weirdos. I was shocked when, in college, I found that some people get offended when you tell them, for instance, that their recovery from surgery was a 'miracle'.
I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we're all teachers — if we're willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.
Miracle — quotes and aphorisms
You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
I was given such a great gift. It's a miracle that never stops amazing me and reminding me to give thanks, every day. Having a wife and daughter gives me a lot more purpose. I was much more selfish before, but now I think about what kind of role model I'll be. I just want to be a better man.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
