Saewod Tice Quotes

"Im not some possession." I pushed at his chest once more. "No, youre not." His mouth returned to mine. "You are my wife." I continued to struggle with the mass of him. He pulled his head back. "Youre the only woman Ive loved since I lost my mother and sister." His eyes intent on mine. Torn by my anger and his admission, I stopped protesting. His mouth moved against my neck and his body pressed into mine. "I have loved you for so long."

Frithjof Schuon Quotes

"A civilization is integral and healthy to the extent [that] it is founded on the "invisible" or "underlying" religion, the religio perennis, that is, to the extent [that] its expressions or forms are transparent to the Non-Formal and tend toward the Origin, thus conveying the recollection of a lost Paradise, but also - and with all the more reason - the presentiment of a timeless Beatitude. For the Origin is at once within us and before us; time is but a spiral movement around a motionless Center."

Kathy Lette Quotes

"Love is like a tide. When its in, everything looks beautiful and inviting. Only when love recedes can you see the debris beneath the surface - the old bottles, the rusty prams, the sewage pipes, the bloated cats and dogs weighted down to drown. The man I had once loved so passionately I now saw as weak, gutted like a fish."

Edward Mooney Jr Quotes

"The waters of the stream played the part of the orchestra, and the sunlight provided the dancers. Every now and then a crescendo of wind highlighted the symphony in the clearing by the creek."

Quotes About Paul Newman

Quotes About Vacation Tumblr

"One of the most frustrating words in the human language, as far as I could tell, was love.So much meaning attached to this one little word. People bandied it about freely, using it todescribe their attachments to possessions, pets, vacation destinations, and favorite foods. In thesame breath they then applied this word to the person they considered most important in theirlives. Wasnt that insulting? Shouldnt there be some other term to describe deeper emotion?" - Author: Alexandra Adornetto

Quotes About Remedy

"Perhaps a creature of so much ingenuity and deep memory is almost bound to grow alienated from his world, his fellows, and the objects around him. He suffers from a nostalgia for which there is no remedy upon earth except as it is to be found in the enlightenment of the spirit--some ability to have a perceptive rather than an exploitive relationship with his fellow creatures." - Author: Loren Eiseley

Quotes About Being True Person

"And in the Incarnation the whole human race recovers the dignity of the image of God. Henceforth, any attack even on the least of men is an attack on Christ, who took the form of man, and in his own Person restored the image of God in all that bears a human form. Through fellowship and communion with the incarnate Lord, we recover our true humanity, and at the same time we are delivered from that individualism which is the consequence of sin, and retrieve our solidarity with the whole human race. By being partakers of Christ incarnate, we are partakers in the whole humanity which he bore. We now know that we have been taken up and borne in the humanity of Jesus, and therefore that new nature we now enjoy means that we too must bear the sins and sorrows of others. The incarnate Lord makes his followers the brothers of all mankind." - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Quotes About Currency

"The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is the Governments greatest creative opportunity. By the adoption of these principles, the long-felt want for a uniform medium will be satisfied. The taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest, discounts and exchanges. The financing of all public enterprises, the maintenance of stable government and ordered progress, and the conduct of the Treasury will become matters of practical administration. The people can and will be furnished with a currency as safe as their own government. Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power." - Author: Abraham Lincoln

Quotes About Bouquet Toss

"Then light your candles to the living. Say your prayers for the living. Leave the stones where they are, but take your heart with you. Your heart is not a stone. True love demands that, like a bride with her bouquet, you toss your fragile glass heart into the waiting crowd of living hands and trust that they will catch it." - Author: Kate Braestrup

Quotes About God Comforting Us

"Stories hold power because they convey the illusion that life has purpose and direction. Where God is absent from the lives of all but the most blessed, the writer, of all people, replaces that ordering principle. Stories make sense when so much around us is senseless, and perhaps what makes them most comforting is that, while life goes on and pain goes on, stories do us the favor of ending." - Author: John Hodgman

Quotes About The New York Times

"Well, Im not sure the New York Times was consciously trying to trivialise me, but the effect of it is to put everything in the same category as the gossip you read in the magazines you pick up at supermarket counters. I was asked, for example, why I thought there were so many euphemisms for genitalia. Its not a serious question. Whatever the purpose of such a tone is, the effect is to make it appear that anyone who departs from orthodox political doctrine is in some ways laughable." - Author: Noam Chomsky

Quotes About Not Being Stupid In Love

"And you and I know youre the best thing that ever happened to me, and, yes, thats an expression, something people say, that has no meaning, but what I mean is there isnt anybody in the whole world who has loved me the way you have, not my mother, not my old man, not my friends.Theres nothing preventing me and you from loving each other and being some kinda world-class shining beacon of love except how bad do we want it and what are we willing to do for it?Now, I know I did you wrong, and I was freaking out and being stupid and I was mean to you. You know sometimes I get all fucking confused and I cant see outside of my own asshole. Im unhappy. Why am I unhappy? Its gotta be somebodys fault, right? It couldnt just be that Im a self-centered fuck spinning around inside my own dank cloud of concerns.There isnt anything I can think of that I really want or that the best part of me wants, that loving you wont start doing. I love you." - Author: Ethan Hawke
