Foppe Vander Zwaag Quotes

"We owe God a "double debt" incurred by our passive receipt of Adams debt but also by our active disobedience. The extent of our depravity is such that we also owe a "daring debt" because we challenge not only Gods Law but His very grace as we blame Him that He has not done enough."

Cyprian Quotes

"It is a bad world, Donatus, an incredibly bad world. But I have discovered in the midst of it a quiet and good people who have learned the great secret of life. They have found a joy and wisdom which is a thousand times better than any of the pleasures of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They are masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are Christians. . . and I am one of them."

Margaret Edson Quotes

"……, but as I am a scholar I feel obliged to document what it is like here, most of the time, between the dramatic climaxes. In truth it is like this: You cannot imagine how time can be so still. It hangs. It weighs, and yet there is so little of it. It goes so slowly and it is so scarce. If I was writing this scene it would last a full 15 minutes. I would lie here and you would sit there."

Quotes About Spawn

"One of his motivating passions was to build a lasting company. At age twelve, when he got a summer job at Hewlett-Packard, he learned that a properly run company could spawn innovation far more than any single creative individual. " I discovered that the best innovation is sometimes the company, the way you organize a company," he recalled." The whole notion of how you build a company is fascinating. When i got the chance to come back to Apple, I realized that I would be useless without the company, and thats why I decided to stay and rebuild it." - Author: Walter Isaacson

Quotes About Election And God

"Election has nothing to do with the eternal salvation of individuals but refers instead to Gods way of saving nations. It was a major mistake of the Reformation to have decided to follow Augustine in this matter, taking election to refer to grace and salvation. It manages to make bad news out of good news. It casts a deep shadow over the character of God. At it worst, it can lead to awful consequences in terms of pride, arrogance, superiority, and intolerance as the ideology of election takes hold. It causes the church to become, not a sign of the unity of humanity in the love of God, but the sign of favorites in the midst of the enemies of God." - Author: Clark H. Pinnock

Quotes About Helping Just One Person

"It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which,if you say it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree helping each other to one or the other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilites, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all of our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - These are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Famous Singers

Quotes About Jumping In The Air

"Asking Wolf to couples skate is like bungee jumping without a cord-it may be the bravest thing Ive ever done in my life.Or it could be the stupidest.Theres only one way to find out.I look him dead in the eyes, summoning up both my courage and my sense of reckless abandon, but before I can even speak one syllable-"Oh!" he says, looking over one shoulder and dropping his hands. "Kaitlyns free now. I gotta get over there!"He rushes off, blowing me an air kiss.My mouth should get used to falling open when hes around, either from his good looks or from his total lack of comprehension of all things polite. Did that just happen?My face in my palms, I lean on my elbows against the rail, invisible, and fall into an intoxicating state of self-pity." - Author: Alecia Whitaker

Quotes About Desensitized

"I decline the coffee. I dont drink it, because no matter how much sugar I put into it, it still tastes like ass-water to me. Maybe its because my taste buds are so desensitized to sweet that anything not comprised of at least ninety percent sugar tastes wrong" - Author: Katja Millay

Quotes About Discussing Problems

"Dear 2600: I think my girlfriend has been cheating on me and I wanted to know if I could get her password to Hotmail and AOL. I am so desperate to find out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. And this is yet another popular category of letter we get. You say any help would be appreciated? Lets find out if thats true. Do you think someone who is cheating on you might also be capable of having a mailbox you dont know about? Do you think that even if you could get into the mailbox she uses that she would be discussing her deception there, especially if we live in a world where Hotmail and AOL passwords are so easily obtained? Finally, would you feel better if you invaded her privacy and found out that she was being totally honest with you? Whatever problems are going on in this relationship are not going to be solved with subterfuge. If you cant communicate openly, theres not much there to salvage." - Author: Emmanuel Goldstein
