I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Love quotes, yet again

Yes, all these quotes were written by Gods

-“We climb to heaven most often on the ruins of our cherished plans, finding our failures were successes.”

-We only regard those unions as real examples of love and real marriages in which a fixed and unalterable decision has been taken. If men or women contemplate an escape, they do not collect all their powers for the task. In none of the serious and important tasks of life do we arrange such a "getaway." We cannot love and be limited. -Alfred Adler

-He is not a lover who does not love forever.-Euripides

-A sense of duty is useful in work, but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked, not be endured with patient resignation. -Bertrand Russell

-Love is a choice you make from moment to moment. -Barbara de Angelis

-Love is blind, but marriage restores its sight. -Georg C. Lichtenberg

-There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved. -George Sand

- To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia -- to mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god or an ordinary young woman for a goddess. -H.L. Mencken

-We can only learn to love by loving. -Iris Murdock

-Love cures people -- both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. -Karl Menninger

-Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. -Mark Twain

-Religion is to do right. It is to love, it is to serve, it is to think, it is to be humble.-Ralph Waldo Emerson

-Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young. -Sir Arthur Pinero

-The bottom line is that (a) people are never perfect, but love can be, (b) that is the one and only way that the mediocre and vile can be transformed, and (c) doing that makes it that. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love. -Tom Robbins

-Love doesn't just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new. -Ursula K. LeGuin

-Old men are like that, you know. It makes them feel important to think they are in love with somebody. -Willa Cather

-Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart. -Washington Irving

-Love all, trust a few. -William Shakespeare

-The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love. -William Sloane Coffin
