• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Piet Hein

  • The universe may be as great as they say. But it wouldn’t be missed if it didn’t exist.
  • After all, what is art? Art is the creative process and it goes through all fields. Einstein’s theory of relativity – now that is a work of art! Einstein was more of an artist in physics than on his violin.
  • Art is this: art is the solution of a problem which cannot be expressed explicitly until it is solved.
  • I am a humble artist moulding my earthly clod, adding my labour to nature’s, simply assisting God. Not that my labour is needed, yet somehow I understand, my Maker has deemed it that I too should have Unmoulded clay in my hand.
  • Living is a thing you do now or never- which do you?
  • We ought to live each day as though it were our last day here below. But if I did, alas, I know it would have killed me long ago.
  • Whenever you’re called on to make up your mind, and you’re hampered by not having any, the best way to solve the dilemma, you’ll find, is simply by spinning a penny. No — not so that chance shall decide the affair while you’re passively standing there moping; but the moment the penny is up in the air, you suddenly know what you’re hoping.
  • Naive you are if you believe life favours those who aren’t naive.
  • Freedom means you’re free to do just whatever pleases you; – if, of course that is to say, what you please is what you may.
  • A bit beyond perception’s reach I sometimes believe I see that Life is two locked boxes, each containing the other’s key.
  • People are self-centered to a nauseous degree. They will keep on about themselves while I’m explaining me.

Piet Hein (1905-1996) was a Danish poet and scientist with wide ranging interests. Millions of his countrymen knew him as Kumbel, the pen name he used for his poetry. He was a genius with many different sides. As an artist and constructor, Piet Hein in the 50’s and 60’s gave form to beautiful pieces of furniture, and he contributed to make “Scandinavian design” become an international conception. Internationally he always tried building a bridge between the “hard” technical and natural sciences and the “soft” humanistic subjects.
