Favorite Tempting The Devil Quotes

1. "The Devil offered Christ the ability to turn stones into bread. Then he offered him the chance to test God, or His angels actually, by throwing himself off a cliff. Which I have always thought was probably not a very tempting temptation. To see if the angels would rescue him, right? Christ says no, like any sane person would if you asked him if he would like to jump off a cliff. "Finally, the Devil offered to make Christ the Ruler of the World. Much more tempting than jumping off a cliff, definitely. "But Christ rejects that too. "He rejects everything for what he cannot know. The Great Unknown. He chooses to take"– she shrugged her shoulders to underline how little it seemed– "whatever. Anything. He is saying that what is unknown is better than anything that is known. That the freedom to go through life without even ever knowing what is going to happen to you is the best possible thing that can happen, better than any miraculous gift could ever be."

2. "Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil."
Author: Horatio Nelson
