Love, Courage, Wisdom. . .

"Love without courage and wisdom is sentimentality, as with the ordinary church member. Courage without love and wisdom is foolhardiness, as with the ordinary soldier. Wisdom without love and courage is cowardice, as with the ordinary intellectual. But the one who has love, courage and wisdom moves the world."

--Ammon Hennacy (Catholic activist, 1893-1970) as quoted in Shane Claiborne's The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical (Zondervan, 2006)

Here's to the intellectual soldiers motivated by faith to go forth and change the world!

Keep up the good work, Larry.
