    I end each day with an essay from Boreham and it has made a world of difference in my evening meditation and even in my sleep I love this man s view of the world and how he opens up my viewpoint as well on history, on scripture, on nature, and on great literature As you can imagine, I have marked a lot of quotes from this one, but I won t record every one I will, however, offer up my favourite quote from each essay I am reasonably certain that most will not take up Boreham s works, so I invi I end each day with an essay from Boreham and it has made a world of difference in my evening meditation and even in my sleep I love this man s view of the world and how he opens up my viewpoint as well on history, on scripture, on nature, and on great literature As you can imagine, I have marked a lot of quotes from this one, but I won t record every one I will, however, offer up my favourite quote from each essay I am reasonably certain that most will not take up Boreham s works, so I invite you to take a taste from the quotes to follow as I do think he has much to offer us all We are such poor sleepers because we are such poor saints Napoleon said that the worst of the English was that they never knew when they were beaten Watching a picture show separates me from everybody but watching the swallow links me up with everybody Emerson told of two American senators who, each in his own way, spent twenty five years in searching for evidence of the immortality of the soul And Emerson marvels that they failed to notice that the implies that prompted them to seek that evidence so patiently through all the years was in itself the strongest proof they could desire I understand now, says Mr H G Wells, why modern electioneering isthan half of it denunciation There is nothing constructive That calls for the creative imagination, and few are able to respond to that call The fact is that there are two kinds of chivalry the chivalry that is instinctive and the chivalry that is acquired The attentions that we pay to good looking people, because they are good looking, are prompted by instinctive chivalry There is nothing at all wrong in this it is perfectly nature it is the tribute that we instinctively offer to beauty But let us suppose that, instead of a pretty girl, a woman of quite another type enters the car She is negligently dressed her hair is unkempt and disheveled her face is coarse, repulsive, and sour The young man still rises, not because he loves to, but because he knows he should, because he has been taught to do so The chivalry that leads him to vacate his seat in this case is not instinctive but acquired But I must not, and will not, be misunderstood Of the two kinds of chivalry that I have named, the chivalry that is acquired is obviously a finer thing than the chivalry that is instinctive The one is the product of Nature the other is a triumph of Grace Whenever and wherever created things have stood face to face with their Creator, they have straightway burst into melody The sailor builds his finest ship of heaviest steel, and the airman soars by means of things that fall Depend upon it, heart of mine, the heaviness that seems to crush thee was meant for thee to soar by Be an airman, every time He who would have beautiful roses in his garden must have beautiful rose in his heart Dean Hole If I needed to hear only of the loveliness and wisdom and grandeur of God, then Nature would suffice But I need a Saviour and when I speak to her of my sin Nature makes sport of me The human heart cries out for a personal Redeemer, and Nature cannot satisfy it For really, all the machinery of the universe seems designed to bring a man to himself and, as a consequence, a man finds himself up against himself at every turn Or take the books I read We are in the habit of affirming that the books we read determine our own characters The truth, of course, is that our own characters determine the books we read If I am evil, I shall read evil books and the evil in the books is simply the reflection of the evil that is in me If I am learned, I shall read learned book and the scholarship in the books is simply the reflection of my own erudition If I am shallow, I shall read silly books and the stupidity of the books is simply the reflection of my own frivolity The phenomenon greets us at every turn The world may change as it will, but the rapture of the seaside is one that delighted those who sought the shores of the Aegean and the Adriatic twenty centuries ago, and that will fascinate no less the last dwellers on the planet The infinite expanse of the shining waters seemed to connect him Mark Rutherford with all the continents and islands that those rolling breakers laved, and, over and over again, he writes of the sea as a corrective to the littleness around him It is when deep answers to deep, and the profundities of one soul echo to the voice of the other, that an understanding has been reached on which a home can be securely built Ruskin has reminded us that it would have answered all the necessary purposes of the sky if, once in three days or thereabouts, a great, ugly black rain cloud were brought up over the blue and everything well watered, and so all left blue again till next time, with perhaps a film of morning and evening mist for dew Instead of this there is not a moment of any day of our lives when Nature is not producing scene after scene, picture after picture, glory after glory, and upon such perfect principles of beauty that it is quite certain it is all done for us, and intended for our ceaseless pleasure The Church had conquered the world, not through the attendance of the world at her services, not even by her public witness outside of her Church walls, but by the private influence of her members over those with whom, during the week, they came in contact Chivalry may lurk in cottages as well as in courts Heroism may display itself in kitchens as well as campaigns Is it not Mr G.K Chesterton who says that the spectacle of a pair of lovers wandering in a leafy lane is a greater slice of history than the record of a battle For the battle is a grim story of the past while, as you gaze upon that happy man and maid, you look down the long avenues of future generations Jesus sent his disciples forth two by two and to each pair He gave this great and solemn charge Eat such things as are set before you heal the sick and say unto them, The Kingdom of God has come to the door If Great Britain, the land of Wycliff, and Germany, the land of Luther, have caught anything of the spirit of the prophets who have made them great, it will be impossible for them to quarrel This one gave me a chill as it was written on the eve of The Great War, what we now call World War I

    As a young church planting pastor, I ve taken up the habit of reading Boreham after each weekend of ministry What sweet times of soul nourishment and uplift I am, without a doubt a better, kinder,balanced and joyful person because of these moments in the worn pages of F.W Boreham.

    The worst word in any Boreham is the last I always hate to finish one, because of the joy and company they bring me The Golden Milestone is no different I especially enjoyed the essays The First Swallow , a Philosophy of Pickles , The Bloodhound of the Hedgerow , and Violets and Vipers.
