I fail to understand what you are requesting....a site...with poems.

focus on older quotations. Many of which I enjoy. However I am looking for quotations from songs or even very modern poetry. Like the one in my signature.

By the way I like that..."Old age is a shipwreck". Makes me wonder why I feel like a shipwreck at 22!

Ahh okay, thanks. Here are some:

"the deepest truth of the old story of Christian Orthodoxy is that the divine nature is most fully seen not in lordly transcendence, but in the agony of incarnation and crucifixion"

"The New Story of Creation", page 35


"Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In he boredom and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness; touch, taste, smell your way into the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all moments are kept moments, and life itself is a grace"
Frederick Buechner
"Now and Then", Harper & Row, San Francisco, 1983, page 87.


"We ask to know the will of God without guessing that his will is written into our very beings"

"Eschatology teaches us to view time as a gift of God rather than a resource to be managed"
R. Paul Stevens
"The Other Six Days" Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., Grand Rapids, MI. 1999, page 245.


"Much of what passes for theological education is the extension of the tree of knowledge of good and evil through history offering the temptation to transcend our creatureliness. True worship is the opposite invitation"
R. Paul Stevens
"The Other Six Days" Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., Grand Rapids, MI. 1999, page 246.
