Robert Anton Gollwitzer

Seelsorger. Berater. Aktivist. - Politisch. Katholisch. Leidenschaftlich.


Ich arbeite seit geraumer Zeit darauf hin, mich voll und ganz - und vor allem Potential- und Ergebnis-orientiert! - auf das zu konzentrieren und das zu fördern, was mir wirklich liegt und wozu ich Talent und eine Leidenschaft habe. Ich glaube an Jesus Christus mit meinem ganzen Herzen und will all das in Seine Nachfolge stellen - indem ich meine Talente reiche Frucht tragen. Für mich. Für andere. Für Jesus.

I don't want anything to be left to give when I cross the finish line to face my Lord!

Es gibt einen Sinn im Leben, aber ein Ziel?

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
(Steve Jobs, Apple Inc.)

„Es ist nicht gesagt, dass es besser wird, wenn es anders wird.
Es muss aber anders werden, damit es besser wird.“
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1741 – 1799)

I am not here on this planet to make friends, but to serve Jesus. Therefore, I don't have to like everybody, but I have to love them. It is okay not to like some as well as it is okay that some don't like me (it is impossible to like everyone anyway). The thing is: Will you love them with the same unconditional love with which Jesus loved us just the same? Also I am not here to kiss people's butts. Many will find me and what I stand for and believe in offensive. So be it. They nailed the Son of God on the cross - why should they treat His followers any differently. Or as people say: When our King and Savior wore a crown of thorns, ours should not be of gold. There will be moments when we will have to suffer for Him. Will we still love Him then? Will we let Him suffer through us? We share His whole life - the joy, the witness, but also the passion and the cross.

"If there is a sense of reality, there must also be a sense of possibility."
Robert Musil

"As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, then there is no goal beyond our reach." - Donald J. Trump

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

“Never put a lid on God. You can give God a thimble and ask for a quart. It won't work. Your plans, your projects, your dreams have to always be bigger than you, so God has room to operate. I want you to get good ideas, crazy ideas, extravagant ideas. Nothing is too much for The Lord to do - accent on 'The Lord'.”

― Mother Angelica

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

“People who always want to be happy and pursue it above all else are some of the most miserable people in the world.”

'Every change begins with a vision and a decision to take action.' ~ David Bornstein

“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

I don't like people who sit on the fence. As it says in "Facing the Giants": Decide which side you're on - and stay there.

“Getting to the next level always requires ending something, leaving it behind, and moving on. Growth itself demands that we move on. Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.”
― Henry Cloud, Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward
