And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Author: Anonymous
3. "…food is capable of feeding far more than a rumbling stomach. Food is life; our well-being demands it. Food is art and magic; it evokes emotion and colors memory, and in skilled hands, meals become greater than the sum of their ingredients. Food is self-evident; plucked right from the ground or vine or sea, its power to delight is immediate. Food is discovery; finding an untried spice or cuisine is for me like uncovering a new element. Food is evolution; how we interpret it remains ever fluid. Food is humanitarian: sharing it bridges cultures, making friends of strangers pleasantly surprised to learn how much common ground they ultimately share."
Author: Anthony Beal
4. "Indeed, it is evident that the mere passage of time itself is destructive rather than generative [...] because change is primarily a 'passing away.' So it is only incidentally that time is the cause of things coming into being and existing."

9. "În ultimul trimestru din 1929 m-am dat batut, am recunoscut ca Dumnezeu este Dumnezeu, am îngenuncheat si m-am rugat: eram, pesemne, în seara aceea, cel mai sovaielnic si mai abatut convertit din toata Anglia. Nu vedeam atunci ceea ce acum este cel mai glorios si mai evident lucru: smerenia Divina care accepta un convertit chiar si în asemenea conditii. Fiul Risipitor cel putin s-a întors acasa purtat de propriile-i picioare. Dar cine poate proslavi îndeajuns acea Iubire care deschide înaltele porti în fata unui fiu risipitor adus înauntru dând din picioare, zbatându-se, plin de obida si cautând cu privirea în toate partile o sansa de scapare? Cuvintele "compelle intrare" siliti-i sa intre, au fost atât de denaturate de oameni nelegiuiti, încât ne cutremuram în fata lor; dar, întelese cum se cuvine, ele masoara nemarginirea milei Divine. Asprimea lui Dumnezeu este mai gingasa decât blândetea omeneasca, iar constrângerea Lui este libertatea noastra."
Author: C.S. Lewis
10. "All the practical principles behind the Innovator's case for posterity, or society, or the species, are there from time immemorial in the Tao. But they are nowhere else. Unless you accept these without question as being to the world of action what axioms are to the world of theory, you can have no practical principles whatsoever. You cannot reach them as conclusions: they are premises. (...) If nothing is self-evident, nothing can be proved. Similarly, if nothing is obligatory for its own sake, nothing is obligatory at all."
Author: C.S. Lewis
11. "Now it is evident that a little insight into the customs of every people is necessary to insure a kindly communication; this, joined with patience and kindness, will seldom fail with the natives of the interior."
Author: Charles Sturt
12. "In scoring we have a lot that was not evident in the shooting. The radio is on all the time."
Author: Debbie Allen
13. "Readers usually ignore the typographic interface, gliding comfortably along literacy's habitual groove. Sometimes, however, the interface should be allowed to fail. By making itself evident, typography can illuminate the construction and identity of a page, screen, place, or product."
Author: Ellen Lupton
14. "Evident in every small act of kindness, it was love as a verb. Love that made me feel more complete than I had ever felt in my glamorous, Jimmy Choo filled past."
Author: Emily Giffin
15. "No! on Human Rights and Freedom, on a subject that is as self-evident as that two and two make four, there is no need of any written authority."
Author: Ernestine Rose
16. "Whence it is evident that the perfect religion committed to us by the teaching of Christ is not new and strange, but, if the truth must be spoken, it is the first and the true religion. This may suffice for this subject."
Author: Eusebius
17. "Evidentemente, soy muy ignorante, la verdad es esa, y es muy triste para mi, pero esto supone una ventaja: El ignorante osa a más cosas. También estoy preparado para soportar todavía un poco la ignorancia y sus consecuencias -malas, de acuerdo- tanto como resistan mis fuerzas."
Author: Franz Kafka
18. "The notion that not only the biopolymer but the operating program of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on the Earth is evidently nonsense of a high order."
Author: Fred Hoyle

Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Author: Heda Margolius Kovaly
21. "It is very evident what mean and sneaking lives many of you live, for my sight has been whetted by experience; always on the limits, trying to get into business and trying to get out of debt, a very ancient slough, called by the Latins aes alienum, another's brass, for some of their coins were made of brass; still living, and dying, and buried by this other's brass; always promising to pay, promising to pay, to-morrow, and dying to-day, insolvent..."
Author: Henry David Thoreau
22. "As the day progressed, it became evident that I would eat better on this period of punishment from Mott than I'd eaten yet since coming to Farthenwood. Tobias snuck me back better than half of his breakfast, and Errol left some food in my room while cleaning up, expressing false dismay after I ate it that "it was food intended for somebody else." We were to remain in our room in private study because of Princess Amarinda being in the house, but after lunch was brought to us, Tobias gave me all of his lunch and Roden shared half."
Author: Jennifer A. Nielsen
23. "But yet it is evident that religion consists so much in affection, as that without holy affection there is no true religion; and no light in the understanding is good which does not produce holy affection in the heart: no habit or principle in the heart is good which has no such exercise; and no external fruit is good which does not proceed from such exercises."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
24. "... each gratification points to the ultimate one, and that all happiness has some connection with eternal beatitude. Some connection, if only this: that every fulfillment this side of Heaven instantly reveals its inadequacy. It is immediately evident that such satisfactions are not enough; they are not what we have really sought; they cannot really satisfy us at all."
Author: Josef Pieper
25. "A study of fifty women conducted in 1887 revealed that the corset forcibly contracted their waists by anywhere between two and a half and six bodies. The pressure it applied to women's bodies averaged twenty-one pounds but could reach as high as eighty-eight pounds. Tight-lacing was thus akin to crushing oneself slowly from all sides. As a harsh critic of the corset noted, 'It is evident, physiologically, that air is the pabulum of life, and that the effects of a tight cord round the neck and of tight-lacing only differ in degree.... for the strangulations are both fatal. To wear tight stays is in many cases to wither, to waste and to die."
Author: Joshua Zeitz
26. "Even to an outsider like myself, not only in the theatre was such disunity evident, but in much else in government Spain. Alvarez del Vayo, Socialist Minister of Foreign Affairs, once asked, "Why is it Spain's people are so great, but her leaders so small?"
Author: Langston Hughes
27. "I saw that all who do not profess an identical faith with themselves are considered by the Orthodox to be heretics, just as the Catholics and others consider the Orthodox to be heretics. And i saw that the Orthodox (though they try to hide this) regard with hostility all who do not express their faith by the same external symbols and words as themselves; and this is naturally so; first, because the assertion that you are in falsehood and I am in truth, is the most cruel thing one man can say to another; and secondly, because a man loving his children and brothers cannot help being hostile to those who wish to pervert his children and brothers to a false belief. And that hostility is increased in proportion to one's greater knowledge of theology. And to me who considered that truth lay in union by love, it became self-evident that theology was itself destroying what it ought to produce."
Author: Leo Tolstoy
28. "We are all, I realise, even as I write this, merely moving closer to our deaths. At the end of this sentence I am closer to mine than I was at the beginning. It's relentless. It's a savage thing. And yet for a long time I've carried with me a sense of life opening out. Evidently it's some kind of protective illusion."
Author: Luke Davies
29. "Inverted commas (or speech marks, or quotes) are sometimes used by fastidious writers as a kind of linguistic rubber glove, distancing them from vulgar words or clichés they are too refined to use in the normal way. This 'N' character in Iris Murdoch's novel evidently can't bring himself to say 'keep in touch' without sealing it hygienically within inverted commas, and doubtless additionally indicating his irony with two pairs of curled fingers held up at either side of his face."
Author: Lynne Truss
30. "Es evidente que Dios me concedió un destino oscuro. Ni siquiera cruel. Simplemente oscuro. Es evidente que me concedió una tregua. Al principio, me resistí a creer que eso pudiera ser la felicidad. Me resistí con todas mis fuerzas, después me di por vencido y lo creí. Pero no era la felicidad, era solo una tregua. Ahora estoy otra vez metido en mi destino. Y es más oscuro que antes, mucho más."
Author: Mario Benedetti
31. "(...) Eu consegui variar a existência - mas variá-la quotidianamente. Eu não tenho só tudo quanto existe - percebe? - ; eu tenho também tudo quanto não existe. (Aliás, apenas o que não existe é belo.) Eu vivo horas que nunca ninguém viveu, horas feitas por mim, sentimentos criados por mim, voluptuosidades só minhas - e viajo em países longínquos, em nações misteriosas que existem para mim, não porque as descobrisse, mas porque as edifiquei. Porque eu edifico tudo. Um dia hei-de mesmo erguer o ideal - não obtê-lo, muito mais: construí-lo. E já o entrevejo fantástico... e todo esguio... todo esguio... a extinguir-se em altura azul... (...)De resto, é evidente, faltam-me as palavras para lhe exprimir as coisas maravilhosas que não existem... Ah! O ideal... o ideal... Vou sonhá-lo este noite... Porque é sonhando que eu vivo tudo. Compreende? Eu dominei os sonhos. Sonho o que quero. Vivo o que quero."
Author: Mário De Sá Carneiro
32. "Evidentemente è questa la caratteristica della città contemporanea. Puoi aver voglia di lavorarci. Ma nessuno si aspetta seriamente che tu ci viva."
Author: Martin Amis
33. "Neindoielnic omul nu e facut pentru fericire, ca sa aiba intr-adevar posibilitatea practica de a fi fericit omul ar trebui sa se transforme, sa se transforme fizic. Cu ce poate fi comparat Dumnzeu? Mai intai, evident, cu sexul femeilor; dar si, poate, cu aburii dintr-o baie turceasca. Oricum, cu ceva care sa faca spiritul posibil cand trupul exulta de bucurie si de placere, iar orice teama e abolita. Acum sunt sigur ca spiritul inca nu s-a nascut, ca vrea sa se nasca si ca nasterea lui va fi dificila, ca deocamdata avem despre el doar o idee trunchiata si nociva."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
34. "Betty took him for a walk in the zoo and he was amused by her evident belief in the curative power of animals. She seemed to think that it must steady him to look at a buffalo."
Author: Nathanael West
35. "No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people."
Author: Noah Webster
36. "Sentimentul de a fi tot si evidenta de a nu fi nimic."
Author: Paul Valéry
37. "Everything is self-evident."
Author: Rene Descartes
38. "The tree was evidently aged, from the size of its stem. It was about six feet high, the branches came out from the stem in a regular and symmetrical manner, and it had all the appearance of a tree in miniature."
Author: Robert Fortune
39. "Besides, I was myself the one who spoke to me. I sat and stood at the same time, hushed and spoke and formed two persons from my own alone. It was, wasn't it, as if with the greatest levity and astonishing velocity thinkable one stood up from where one sat to stand speaking to the person one was a moment before and now no longer was, and yet remained that person still, because one is seeing oneself in imagination, which enriches life, which I employ as often as I want or can or may, which throws me off balance and always restores it, which is the continuous emotion for the sake of which I always and never go too far, which as today for instance, multiplies me or at least doubles me now and then, which is strange and is pleasurable and keeps me active and therefore rejuvenated and foolish, so that one can experience being pleasured alive, so that it won't be all too self-evident, and not too lonesome, either."
Author: Robert Walser
40. "So things go on as before with those who think a great deal and effect nothing, and those who think nothing evidently doing it all..."
Author: Saul Bellow
41. "Every sickness has an alien quality, a feeling of invasion and loss of control that is evident in the language we use about it."
Author: Siri Hustvedt
42. "The third group is focused on counterintelligence and security. I think the reason for that is fairly evident, in terms of vulnerabilities of the department and the harm that can come to it by failing to detect when we have, in fact, been harmed."
Author: Stephen Cambone
43. "Equally serious is the complaint that psychoanalysis as a medical practice is a form of oppressive social control, labelling individuals and forcing them to conform to arbitrary definitions of ‘normality'. This charge is in fact more usually aimed against psychiatric medicine as a whole: as far as Freud's own views on ‘normality' are concerned, the accusation is largely misdirected. Freud's work showed, scandalously, just how ‘plastic' and variable in its choice of objects libido really is, how so-called sexual perversions form part of what passes as normal sexuality, and how heterosexuality is by no means a natural or self-evident fact. It is true that Freudian psychoanalysis does usually work with some concept of a sexual ‘norm'; but this is in no sense given by Nature."
Author: Terry Eagleton
44. "Truth is female, since truth is beauty rather than handsomeness; this, Ridcully reflected as the council grumbled in, would certainly explain the saying that a lie could run around the world before Truth has got its, correction, her boots on, since she would have to choose which pair - the idea that any woman in a position to choose would have just one pair of boots being beyond rational belief.Indeed, as a goddess she would have lots of shoes, and thus many choices: comfy shoes for home truths, hobnail boots for unpleasant truths, simple clogs for universal truths and possibly some kind of slipper for self-evident truth.More important right now was what kind of truth he was going to have to impart to his colleagues, and he decided not on the whole truth, but instead on nothing but the truth, which dispensed with the need for honesty."
Author: Terry Pratchett
45. "More and more it is evident that the State, and if necessary the nation, has got to possess the right of supervision and control as regards the great corporations which are its creatures."
Author: Theodore Roosevelt
46. "So evidently music was a killer app and is a killer app for computer and the Internet; it just took the tech industry a long time to hear that message."
Author: Thomas Dolby
47. "One who, though he never digress to read a Lecture, Moral or Political, upon his own Text, nor enter into men's hearts, further than the Actions themselves evidently guide him…filleth his Narrations with that choice of matter, and ordereth them with that Judgement, and with such perspicuity and efficacy expresseth himself that (as Plutarch saith) he maketh his Auditor a Spectator. For he setteth his Reader in the Assemblies of the People, and in their Senates, at their debating; in the Streets, at their Seditions; and in the Field, at their Battels.Quoted by Shelby Foote in his The Civil War: A Narrative – Volume 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian, Bibliographical Note, from Thomas Hobbes' Forward to Hobbes' translation of The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides"
Author: Thomas Hobbes
48. "Enthusiasts for empire argued that Rome had a civilizing mission; that because her values and institutions were self-evidently superior to those of barbarians, she had a duty to propagate them; that only once the whole globe had been subjected to her rule could there be a universal peace."
Author: Tom Holland
49. "The basic stimulus to the intelligence is doubt, a feeling that the meaning of an experience is not self-evident."
Author: W.H. Auden
50. "But why is it that within me "I don't want to" and "I want to" stand side by side? That is the chief horror of the matter; I continue to long for that happy death of yesterday. The horror of it is that even now, when I have integrated the logical function, when it becomes evident that that function contains death hidden within it, still I long for it with my lips, my arms, my heart, with every millimeter...."
