Quotes from A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller

These are just a few of my favorite lines from A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller. If you haven't read Blue Like Jazz, I would recommend reading it before you read this new one.
"Here's the truth about telling stories with you life. It's going to sound like a great idea, and you are going to get excited about it, and then when it comes time to do the work, you're not going to want to do it. It's like writing a books, and it's like that with life. People love to have lived a great story, but few people like the work it takes to make it happen. But joy costs pain." pg. 100
"Job found contentment and even joy, outside the context of comfort, health or stability. He understood the story was not about him, and he cared more about the story then he did about himself." pg. 197
"The human story goes on." pg. 203
"It's a terrible thing to wake up and realize the person you just finished crucifying didn't turn out to be Jesus." pg. 205

Have a great day. God Bless.
