“I have faith that God will show you the answer…”

“I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That’s how it often is. God’s voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.”

Good Life Quotes by Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

“Do you want a cookie? – What? – A cookie. Like an Oreo. Do you want one?…”

“Do you want a cookie?
– What?
– A cookie. Like an Oreo. Do you want one?
– No.
– How can you not want a cookie?
– I just don’t.
– Okay, fine,let’s say you did want a cookie. Let’s say you were dying for a cookie, and there were cookies in the cupboard. What would you do?
– I’d eat a cookie?
– Exactly. That’s all I’m saying.
– What are you saying?
– That if people want cookies, they should get a cookie. It’s what people do.
– Let me guess. Dad won’t let you have a
cookie?
– No. Even though I’m practically starving to death, he won’t even consider it. He says I have to have a sandwich first.
– And you don’t think that’s fair.
– You just said you’d get a cookie if you wanted one. So why can’t I? I’m not a little kid. I can make my own decisions.
– Hmm. I can see why this bothers you so
much.
– It’s not fair. If he wants a cookie, he can have one. If you want a cookie,
you can have one. But if I want a cookie, the rules don’t count. Like you
said, it’s not fair.
– So what are you going to do?
– I’m going to eat a sandwich. Because I have to. Because the world isn’t fair
to ten-year-olds.”
