Goal for life: To fully express the smallness of my greatness.
"The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is." Phillip Brooks.
Goal for writing: To share glimpses of God to enable others to see Him too.
"When you painted on earth--at least in your earlier days--it was because you caught glimpses of Heaven in the earthly landscape. The success of your painting was that it enabled others to see the glimpses too." C.S.Lewis, The Great Divorce (p.83).
