[As It Is The Sister Of Reading, So It Is The Mother Of Prayer. Though A Man's Heart Be Much Indisposed To Prayer, Yet, If He Can But Fall Into A Meditation Of God, And The Things Of God, His Heart Will Soon Come Off To Prayer....Begin With Reading Or Hearing. Go On With Meditation; End In Prayer....Reading Without Meditation Is Unfruitful; Meditation Without Reading Is Hurtful; To Meditate And To Read Without Prayer Upon Both, Is Without Blessing.]

"Suspended for fighting. It had a ring. Not simply suspended, which could be for any number of inane infractions from skipping algebra to drawing nude cartoons of the principal and his staff on random backgrounds. Suspended ... for FIGHTING! It made you sound like something. Like a real badass dude from way back."

Quotes About Hate Crimes

"There are crimes that are truly uncomely. With crimes, whatever they may be, the more blood, the more horror there is, the more imposing they are, the more picturesque, so to speak, but there are crimes that are shameful, disgraceful, all horror aside, so to speak, even far too ungracious..." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Inked

"He blinked in the gloom. He was wearing heavy black trousers and a waistcoat over a stiff white shirt. His exoself, having chosen an obsession which would have been meaningless in a world of advanced computers, had dressed him for the part of a Victorian naturalist.The drawers, he knew, were full of beetles. Hundreds of thousands of beetles. He was free, now, to do nothing with his time but study them, sketch them, annotate them, classify them: specimen by specimen, species by species, decade after decade. The prospect was so blissful that he almost keeled over with joy." - Author: Greg Egan

Quotes About Commitment To God

"When we fail or feel like a failure, we need to ask ourselves some questions: Did I do something wrong or make a bad decision that led to this failure? Am I acting independently of God? Is there anything I am not doing to fulfill a commitment I made? Did I pray about this or just do it because I wanted to? Was I responsible for the outcome? Did I overcommit myself in agreeing to do this? • Is God using this to refine my character?" - Author: Renee Swope

Quotes About Citizens Of The World

"Ask questions, no, screech questions out loud - while kneeling in front of the electric doors at Safeway, demanding other citizens ask questions along with you - while chewing up old textbooks and spitting the words onto downtown sidewalks - outside the Planet Hollywood, outside the stock exchange, and outside the Gap. Grind questions onto the glass on photocopiers. Scrape challenges onto old auto parts and throw them off bridges so that future people digging in the mud will question the world, too. Carve eyeballs into tire treads and onto shoe leathers so that your every trail speaks of thinking and questioning and awareness. Design molecules that crystallize into question marks. Make bar codes print out fables, not prices. You cant even throw away a piece of litter unless it has a question mark stamped on it - a demand for people to reach a finer place" - Author: Douglas Coupland

Quotes About Passed Father

"It was Buckley, as my father and sister joined the group and listened to Grandma Lynns countless toasts, who saw me. He saw me standing under the rustic colonial clock and stared. He was drinking champagne. There were strings coming out from all around me, reaching out, waving in the air. Someone passed him a brownie. He held it in his hand but did not eat. He saw my shape and face, which had not changed-the hair still parted down the middle, the chest still flat and hips undeveloped-and wanted to call out my name. It was only a moment, and then I was gone." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Rescued

"Eisenhower and Patton, old friends and figures crucial to the Allies upcoming success, conferred over yet another gaffe on Pattons part that could have cost him his command. Pattons head is on Ikes shoulder in gratitude, but the scene is rescued from being completely maudlin by Eisenhowers internal question as to whether Patton wears his ever-present helmet to bed." - Author: Jean Edward Smith

Quotes About Sisters Love

"But the cinephile is … a neurotic! (Thats not a pejorative term.) The Bronte sisters were neurotic, and its because they were neurotic that they read all those books and became writers. The famous French advertising slogan that says, "When you love life, you go to the movies," its false! Its exactly the opposite: when you dont love life, or when life doesnt give you satisfaction, you go to the movies." - Author: François Truffaut
