Jim Elliot
No one warns young people to follow Adam's example. He waited till God saw his need. Then God made Adam sleep, prepared for his mate, and brought her to him. We need more of this 'being asleep' in the will of God. Then we can receive what He brings us in His own time, if at all. Instead we are set as bloodhounds after a partner, considering everyone we see until our minds are so concerned with the sex problem that we can talk of nothing else when bull-session time comes around. It is true that a fellow cannot ignore women but he can think of them as he ought as sisters, not as sparring partners!
Elliot quotes
He is no fool who parts with that which he cannot keep, when he is sure to be recompensed with that which he cannot lose.
Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.

Elliot Jim quotes
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.
