So...we watched Amazing Grace recently and the story is so good I thought I'd share the best quotes with you all :)

"We're too young to realize that certain thing s are in possible....

...which is why we'll do them anyway."

-William Pitt-

"God sometimes does his work in a gentle drizzle, not storms."

-John Newton-

"Am I not a Man?
Whose soul is drawn to Heaven from the dark well that is Africa?"

"How is it that you only feel the thorns in your feet when you stop running?"
"Is that some deep metiphorical advice for me?"
"Yes, I suppose it is."

"Also Barbara and I have discovered that we're both impatient and prone to rash decisions.
But she wants to tell you about it herself."

"Though I have lost my memory, I remember two thing clearly.
I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Saviour."
"I once was blind but now I see. Did I write that?
Well, now at last it's true."

"When people speak of great men, they think of men like Napoleon - men of violence. Rarely do they think of peaceful men. But contrast the reception they will receive when they return home from their battles. Napoleon will arrive in pomp and in power, a man who's achieved the very summit of earthly ambition. And yet his dreams will be haunted by the oppressions of war. William Wilberforce, however, will return to his family, lay his head on his pillow and remember: the slave trade is no more. "
-Charles Fox-

I would really like to watch that movie again. I haven't seen it since we watched it in the theater, and I think I would understand and appreciate it more now.
