triumph quotes

-Một người có hai con mắt, hai cái tay, hai cái chân nhưng mà tại sao chỉ có một trái tim?
-Em không biết.
-Bởi vì trái tim còn lại ở trên một người khác. Đời người chính là cả đời tốn công đi tìm trái tim còn lại thuộc về mình.

(Triumph in the skies) 

There is a determined though unseen bravery that defends itself foot by foot in the darkness against the fatal invasions of necessity and dishonesty. Noble and mysterious triumphs that no eye sees, and no fame rewards, and no flourish of triumph salutes. Life, misfortunes, isolation, abandonment, poverty, are battlefields that have their heroes; obscure heroes, sometimes greater than the illustrious heroes.
—  Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
The heart of the gospel is that Jesus Christ, the righteous one, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all His enemies, so that there is now no condemnation, but everlasting joy, for those who trust Him. You never, never, never outgrow your need for this gospel. You don’t begin the Christian life with this and then leave it behind and get stronger with something else. God strengthens us with the gospel to the day we die.
—  John Piper

if ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. we are braver than we believe, stronger than we seem, and smarter than we think. but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…i’ll always be with you.
   - A. A. Milne

Be, butterfly and behemoth,
be galaxy and grasshopper,
star and sparrow,
you matter,
you are,
Be caterpillar and comet,
Be porcupine and planet,
sea sand and solar system,
sing with us,
dance with us,
rejoice with us,
for the glory of creation,
   ―  Madeleine L'Engle
