About loverofwords20

Allison is an aspiring author, and a lover of words, music, and the Lord Jesus Christ. She is also abysmal at these β€œabout you” things, being unable to think of quirky characteristics at the drop of a hat. However, she enjoys singing randomly and loudly, and laughing hysterically while being caught in the rain.

    How strange- that these two would ever be quoted together!

    • Study in contrast, eh? πŸ˜‰ Seriously, I like the quotes by both of these men, but only one do I respect. However, sometimes I think blinded men can stumble upon little glimmers of truth, and love of good music is definitely a gift from God, that can be appreciated by all men. Certainly something for me to ponder though – Nietzsche simply said life would be a mistake. Luther put it in its’ proper perspective so well…as a gift from God. Thanks for pointing out the vast contrast…honestly didn’t think about it til now. πŸ™‚

        A contrast indeed. Love this- “I like the quotes by both of these men, but only one do I respect. However, sometimes I think blinded men can stumble upon little glimmers of truth, and love of good music is definitely a gift from God, that can be appreciated by all men” So True!!!
