No creature's wisdom, power, and love, will be to us instead of God's. It is therefore our sin and folly to place any creature in God's stead, and to place that confidence in any creature which is to be placed in God only. — Bible commentator Matthew Henry

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." — Steve Jobs

Optimism is a wish without warrant, Christian hope is a certainty, guaranteed by God himself. Optimism reflects ignorance as to whether good things will ever actually come.

Packer
