Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom

"Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe."

"When you come to the end, that's where God begins."

"It is far more comforting to think God listened and said no, than to think that nobody's out there."

"Because the word 'commitment' has lost its meaning. I'm old enough to remember when it used to be positive. A committed person was someone to be admired. He wad loyal and steady. Now a commitment was something you avoid. You don't want to tie yourself down. It's the same with faith, by the way. We don't want to get stuck having to go services all the time, or having to follow all the rules. We don't want to commit to God. We'll take Him when we need Him, or when things are going good. But real commitment? That requires staying power - in faih and in marriage."

"Because when the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things: comfort, love and a peaceful heart."
