There may be aptitudes and giftings that are evident in our lives well before we reach the spiritual maturity to dispense them. We may see fruits and big opportunities early on and begin to project how these opportunities will continue to grow as You are lucky enough to have us in Your service. But Your plan to grow us, which is even more important than what we DO for You, is seldom a straight line from smaller glories to bigger ones. Instead, You do show us Your faithfulness in ways that will bring the notice and acclaim, only than to take us aside and to separate our relationship with You from any external rewards that could be distracting."

Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt

"Then, while the old man was clearing the lines and preparing the harpoon, the male fish jumped high into the air beside the boat to see where the female was and then went down deep, his lavender wings, that were his pectoral fins, spread wide and all his wide lavender stripes showing.

15. "When the animals entered the Ark in pairs, one may imagine that allied species made much private remark on each other, and were tempted to think that so many forms feeding on the same store of fodder were eminently superfluous, as tending to diminish the rations....The same sort of temptation befell the Christian Carnivora who formed Peter Featherstone's funeral procession; most of them having their minds bent on a limited store which each would have liked to get the most of. The long-recognized blood-relations and connexions by marriage made already a goodly number, which, multiplied by possibilities, presented a fine range for jealous conjecture and pathetic hopefulness."
Author: George Eliot
16. "Actuality is when the lighthouse is dark between flashes: it is the instant between the ticks of the watch: it is a void interval slipping forever through time: the rupture between past and future: the gap at the poles of the revolving magnetic field, infinitesimally small but ultimately real. It is the interchronic pause when nothing is happening. It is the void between events."

"Von gesellschaftlicher Annäherung konnte nicht die Rede sein, menschliche Qualität wurde nicht einmal erwogen, Geist oder auch nur jede originelle Form der Äußerung erweckte sofort Argwohn, Beförderung über eine zugestandene Grenze hinaus kam nicht in Frage, alles, weil die bürgerliche Legitimation unter der Rubrik Glaubensbekenntnis die Bezeichnung Jude trug. Aber"
Author: Jakob Wassermann
20. "The day has been so full of fret and care, and our hearts have been so full of evil and of bitter thoughts, and the world has seemed so hard and wrong to us. Then Night, like some great loving mother, gently lays her hand upon our fevered head, and turns our little tear-stained faces up to hers, and smiles; and though she does not speak, we know what she would say, and lay our hot flushed cheek against her bosom, and the pain is gone.Sometimes, our pain is very deep and real, and we stand before her very silent, because there is no language for our pain, only a moan. Night's heart is full of pity for us: she cannot ease our aching; she takes our hand in hers, and the little world grows very small and very far away beneath us, and, borne on her dark wings, we pass for a moment into a mightier Presence than her own, and in the wondrous light of that great Presence, all human life lies like a book before us, and we know that Pain and Sorrow are but angels of God."
Author: Jerome K. Jerome
21. "Progress is hardly ever dramatic; in fact, it is usually very slow. As every parent and teacher knows, education is never a matter of ten-step plans or quick formulas, but of faithful commitment to the mundane challenges of daily life: getting up from the sofa to spend time with our children, loving them and disciplining them, becoming involved in their lives at school and, most important, making sure they have a wholesome family life to return to at home. Maybe that is why Jesus teaches us to ask for strength little by little, on a daily basis - "Give us this day our daily bread" - and why he stresses the significance of even the smallest, humblest beginnings: "Wherever two of you agree about anything you ask for, it shall be done for you... For where two or three come together in my name, I shall be with them" (Mt. 18:19-20)."
Author: Johann Christoph Arnold

Author: Joshua Lederberg
27. "I once believed man was different from other animals, but Yodok showed me that reality doesn't support this opinion.

Author: Lao Tzu
31. "M'importava assai poco che l'accordo ottenuto fosse esteriore, imposto, probabilmente temporaneo; sapevo che il bene e il male sono una questione d'abitudine, che il temporaneo si prolunga, che le cose esterne penetrano all'interno, e che la maschera, a lungo andare, diventa il volto."

Yes, The Eye has put a price on Archer's head that could buy a small island."That last bit Archer had taken pretty hard.

That was the only reason they'd fought for Prodigium."Is that true?" I'd asked Archer. His eyes had slid away from mine, and he'd given an exaggerated shrug.I took that as a yes."

41. "I decide to take the subway uptown. I need some time to think, and I can never thing as well in cabs as I can on the subway. For one, I get carsick, and for another, I always feel self-conscious in cabs. I feel like I should talk to the driver or something. That's what one-on-one interaction forces. I prefer being underground. It's comforting, in an odd way. Too many people crammed into this moving metal space. You feel really small down there, insignificant. You'd think that would be a bad thing, but it's not. It's one of the best feelings in the world."
Author: Rebecca Serle

Some people say of these foods, 'well, it tastes good'.Most of the foods today that statically cause sickness, cancer, and disease ALL TATSE GOOD; it's well seasoned and prepared poison. THIS IS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SICK; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually; because of being hooked to the 'taste' of poison, instead of being hooked on the truth and to real foods that heal and provide you with good health and wellness.Respect and honor your Temple- and it will honor you."
Author: SupaNova Slom
