thirst

Many in the world are searching, often intensely, for a source of refreshment that will quench their yearning for meaning and direction in their lives. They crave a cool, satisfying drink of insight and knowledge that will soothe their parched souls.  Joseph B. Wirthlin

But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.     John 4:14

thirst

When one is thirsty one quenches once’s thirst by drinking, not by reading books which treat of the condition. Jean Pierre de Caussade

But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14

longing

It was when I was happiest that I longed most . . . The sweetest thing is all my life has been the longing . . . to find the place where all the beauty came from. C. S. Lewis

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1
