Useful thoughts

Thoughts and intropections useful for every Quo Vadis choir singer (and not only):



Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Antoine de Saint-exupery, Airman's Odyssey



Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-exupery, Airman's Odyssey


Self-discovery comes when a man measures himself against an obstacle.

Antoine de Saint-exupery, Airman's Odyssey


If your life doesn't positively impact anyone this means you lived for nothing. Influience your fellowers to seek God!

How will the the Lord's way for you from now on?

Whatever it will be, at every road's end is Himself.

Ludwig Steil



Where God seeded you, there you must bloom.

Wo Sotl


Wasting God's time is a tragic thing.

Watchman Nee


Material prosperity cannot be a mark of God's blessing since this is what satan promises to those who worship him. (Mat 4:9)

John Piper


God has to strike us to the ground while we shout: "God, I'm not able to think of something, ask something or take a decision. In all and for all I need You".

Through this strike we must learn that human will must not work independently. Only then is this will ready to be used by the inside man.

Watchman Nee, The Release of the Spirit


Starting from the moment when the outside man has been broken, we don't need to seek retrieting near God because we are always in His presence.

Watchman Nee


For that matter, we cannot help our fellows learn lessons we haven't learned.

Watchman Nee


Meekness is the distinctive sign of brokeness.

Watchman Nee


It's hard to help a man who is not broken.

Watchman Nee


Only where God destroys the ego - there you can see the real virtue.

Watchman Nee


If you don't begin with humbleness, you'll end up humbled.

E.S.T., 1982


The height that one man reached depends on the ideal that he proposed himself.

If you want to discover someone's week points, observe the mistakes that that person reads on others.

Stanley Jons, Daily Reflections


We seed a thought and reap an act.

We seed and act and reap a character.

We seed a habit and reap a destiny

Abraham Lincoln 


That one that loves and seeks the truth will never be reach.

Julien Green, Journal


The song if the symphony of the soul



Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.

Proverbs 16:20, The Biblie


I don't like to say that I went to prison because in reality I went to heaven; I had to use the word "prison" only so that I can to explain the story. Many unhappy christians are waiting to get into the other world after they die, but they don't know that heaven has to start from the earth.

Sadhu Sundar Sing


The important thing is not to leave behind something for this world but to take something from it - as much of your fellows as possible, whom you take in the Kingdom of Heaven.

E.S.T., 8 July 2009


It's vain to love a man for his own qualities and to trust them. Love him because you discovered God in him - this can make the charm and profoundness of the true love; because the true love is bound to God, is from God and is God.

The deepness of love between two people is strongly bound to each of those people's relashionship with God.

E.S.T, 1983


You haven't properly lived this day unless you did something for someone who'll never be able to give you back.

John Bunyan


Beauty of face, size of muscles, IQ factor, gained knowledge, culture, talent - none of these will count in the Kingdom of Heaven (we'll have a perfect beauty of the heavenly body and a shiny intelligence, worthy of sons of God, anyway; there won't be anything which we don't know because the knowledge will reach the end, according to 1 Corinthians 13:8)

The love for Christ (it's greatness and the character derived from it - those will truly count in heaven), is the single thing that we'll take with ourselves into ethernity.

E.S.T, 21 July 2009


Many are those who lost the time that God has given them to serve Him. However, they can rise up and make a better use of the days they are left to live. Each day is like a precious diamond.

Sadhu Sundar Sing 


Every human has the right to not listen to the Gospel and to not repent. Salvation is optional and personal, essentially; but the consequences don't belong to human rights...

The value of the anguish measures the value of the pearl.

E.S.T., 6 November 2009   


Regarding the professional success... there are two distinct choices: a) most people train themselves in the insight of the greatest careers on Earth. b) very few christians prepare themselves for a successful career in Heaven.

E.S.T., 31 January 2010   


If you wronged your neighbour today and he cries before God, then don't forget that hardly tomorrow or the day after, God will become his defender and will do the same thing to you, maybe even worse (see Exodus 22:26-28) 

E.S.T., 4 July 2012


The evil lasts on earth as much as the gouge that chops the masterpiece. The material of the gouge is always harder than the material to be carved, because the hardness of the gouge offers maximum quality in the insight of finishing the masterpiece. History registered the masterpieces but the instruments with which they've been made have been completely forgotten or ignored in the end.
