Quotes About Amazing Feats

"There came a moment in this journey when I freely realized that the lives most of lead are small. Important, but small.

Just local in nature... - 209" - Author: Robin Romm

Quotes About Love In The Bible

"But what we did yesterday isnt ever really the point or the question.The question is, are you open, by virtue of your relationship with this new Lover of yours, to being challenged in new ways, invited in new ways, to participate in what God is doing? The overwhelming testimony of the Bible is that too many finish growing long before they have finished living, and so they complete their days sitting on their assets. Thats hardly the abundant life that Jesus came to give." - Author: Richard Dahlstrom

Quotes About Lovers Leaving

"Humans were so preoccupied with love. They were all desperate to form an attachment to one person they could refer to as their other half. It seemed from my reading of literature that being in love meant becoming the beloveds entire world. The rest of the universe paled into insignificance compared to the lovers. When they were separated, each fell into a melancholy state, and only when they were reunited did their hearts start beating again. Only when they were together could really see the colors of the world. When they were apart, that color leached away, leaving everything a hazy gray. I lay in bed, wondering about the intensity of this emotion that was so irrational and so irrefutably human. What if a persons face was so sacred to you it was permanently inscribed in your memory? What if their smell and touch were dearer to you than life itself?" - Author: Alexandra Adornetto

He held up the glass in his hand and waggled it idly, making the rubycontents swirl."Im not one to overindulge.""No, you wouldnt be,Allow me to explain, then, that the more you drink, the more thirsty you become. Not all the wine in the world can assuage the thirst for water. Water. Wine makesyou merry, but a man needs water to keep him alive. Pure, clean, sweet water. I am parched,Alice , scorched like a wasteland, burninglike a damned soul in hell. I thirst." - Author: Gaelen Foley
