„Darius Goes West.“ A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

„When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.“ A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life


„Everybody has to leave, everybody has to leave their home and come back so they can love it again for all new reasons.“ Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road

„I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theater in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxophone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes.

After that I liked jazz music.

Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.

I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened.“
Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„There is something beautiful about a billion stars held steady by a God who knows what He is doing. (They hang there, the stars, like notes on a page of music, free-form verse, silent mysteries swirling in the blue like jazz.) And as I lay there, it occurred to me that God is up there somewhere. Of course, I had always known He was, but this time I felt it, I realized it, the way a person realizes they are hungry or thirsty. The knowledge of God seeped out of my brain and into my heart. I imagined Him looking down on this earth, half angry because His beloved mankind had cheated on Him, had committed adultery, and yet hopelessly in love with her, drunk with love for her.“

„Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life.“ A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

„And so my prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. My hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of you about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves, about learning oneness as a way of understanding God. We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?

It might be time for you to go. It might be time to change, to shine out.

I want to repeat one word for you:.

Roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. It is a beautiful word, isn't it? So strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. And you will not be alone. You have never been alone. Don't worry. Everything will still be here when you get back. It is you who will have changed.“
Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road

„It is always the simple things that change our lives. And these things never happen when you are looking for them to happen. Life will reveal answers at the pace life wishes to do so. You feel like running, but life is on a stroll. This is how God does things.“


„Writers don't make any money at all. We make about a dollar. It is terrible. But then again we don't work either. We sit around in our underwear until noon then go downstairs and make coffee, fry some eggs, read the paper, read part of a book, smell the book, wonder if perhaps we ourselves should work on our book, smell the book again, throw the book across the room because we are quite jealous that any other person wrote a book, feel terribly guilty about throwing the schmuck's book across the room because we secretly wonder if God in heaven noticed our evil jealousy, or worse, our laziness. We then lie across the couch facedown and mumble to God to forgive us because we are secretly afraid He is going to dry up all our words because we envied another man's stupid words. And for this, as I said, we are paid a dollar. We are worth so much more.“ Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and something you decide upon.“ Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„I once listened to an Indian on television say that God was in the wind and the water, and I wondered at how beautiful that was because it meant you could swim in Him or have Him brush your face in a breeze.“ Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„It occurs to me it is not so much the aim of the devil to lure me with evil as it is to preoccupy me with the meaningless.“


„I fell in love with books. Some people find beauty in music, some in painting, some in landscape, but I find it in words. By beauty, I mean the feeling you have suddenly glimpsed another world, or looked into a portal that reveals a kind of magic or romance out of which the world has been constructed, a feeling there is something more than the mundane, and a reason for our plodding.“ To Own a Dragon: Reflections on Growing Up Without a Father

„... sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself...“ Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„Dying for something is easy because it is associated with glory. Living for something is the hard thing. Living for something extends beyond fashion, glory, or recognition. We live for what we believe.“ Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

„And if these mountains had eyes, they would wake to find two strangers in their fences, standing in admiration as a breathing red pours its tinge upon earth's shore. These mountains, which have seen untold sunrises, long to thunder praise but stand reverent, silent so that man's weak praise should be given God's attention.“ Through Painted Deserts: Light, God, and Beauty on the Open Road
