Does justice never find you
Do the wicked never lose
Is there any other song to sing besides these blues
And nothing is ok
Till the world caves in-- Switchfoot (The Blues)

Some may accuse this song of being depressing, pessimistic, and fatalistic, but it's so true...doesn't it always seem that the wicked never lose? Where is justice, this side of heaven? Just feelin' blue...

House, M.D.

Wanting to believe the best about people doesn’t make it true—Gregory House (TV Show House)

Gregory House is an incredibly pessimistic, sarcastic, rude bloke, but he has some of the greatest insights. This quote sums up my attitude about people in general...

Wholly Yours

You are holy, holy, holy...I want to be holy, like you are-- David Crowder Band (Wholly Yours)

I've listened to this song and sung along with David Crowder so many times, but it wasn't until yesterday in church that it struck me--what am I singing? If I want to be holy, truly desire to be holy like Christ, what does that require of me? What am I going to have to change in my life. What will it cost me? The song concludes with David Crowder saying I am wholly Yours...Wow!

Ray, do you think God will forgive us for what we’ve done?
No, Creasy.
I didn’t think so either—John Creasy and Rayburn (Man on Fire)

An incredible quote from a movie that portrays John Creasy as a vengeful bodyguard with a shady past bound on a single mission—kill everyone involved with the murder of the girl he was charged with protecting. Rayburn said it best when talking to the police about Creasy: “Creasy is an artist…his art is death, and he’s about to paint his masterpiece.” The quote above deals with his past, of which not many details are given, but it implies wasn’t good. If only he had known the liberating truth of I John 1:9…
