"Whatever you may doubt, there is something which you deem true; however much is common and unclean, you have gleams of what is surely holy; wherever you are weak, there is some matter on which your secret eye is clear, and your foot is firm. Here then is the ground on which your moral life is to be raised." Martineau.
I love quotes like this, they are so filled with hope for the hopeless, the one who feels as though they have nothing of God in them and feels so much less than others. This marks the common starting place for all who come to God; when someone, some word or some happening sparks, be it ever so small, a ray of hope.
