My goal by the time I graduate is to have read every available book by Amy Carmichael

From Things as They Are:

"God! fight we not within a cursed world,
Whose very air teems thick with leagued fiends--
Each word we speak has infinite effects--
Each soul we pass must go to heaven or hell--
And this our one chance through eternity
To drop and die, like dead leaves in the brake!
Be earnest, earnest, earnest; mad if thou wilt;
Do what thou dost as if the stake were heaven,
And that thy last deed ere the judgment day."
-Charles Kingsley, qtd. in Things as They Are, 4.
