Quotes

When I write something, I generally have an idea that I would like others to grasp. If they construe my sentences in a way that is different from what I intend, then either I have written poorly or they have read poorly. Or both. But in either case I’m frustrated because the aim of writing (except for liars and spies) is to be understood. So the aim of reading should ordinarily be to understand what the writer wants understood. To ignore that aim is to break the golden rule of reading.

JOHN PIPER in Think

I AM A MOUTH

I may not see as the eye will do
I may be unable to hear as the ear does so well
I can’t touch and feel like you the hand
But I can speak because I am a mouth.

O brain, you do so great a job
Thinking and planning and scheduling it right
I thank you for playing your part so well
But I am the mouth and I can speak.

Did you see that foot that just hurried by
Leaping and skipping to save a soul
When he gets to destination he’ll turn and say
You are the mouth, you should speak.

So the Lord had ordained it so
That none should think they’re self-sufficient
But as a body full and complete
We will work until He takes us home.
