Dale Ahlquist Quotes

"He seems so frivolous and so careless, but he gives money to beggars, not frivolously or carelessly, but because he believes in giving money to beggars, and giving it to them "where they stand".He says he knows perfectly well all the arguments against giving money to beggars. But he finds those to be precisely the arguments for giving money to them. If beggars are lazy or deceptive or wanting a drink, he knows only too well his own lack of motivation, his own dishonesty, his own thirst.He doesnt believe in "scientific charity" because that is too easy, as easy as writing a check. He believes in "promiscuous charity" because that is really difficult. "It means the most dark and terrible of all human actions—talking to a man. In fact, I know of nothing more difficult than really talking to the poor men we meet." (pp. 13-14)"

John Piper Quotes

"The Roman Emperor Julian, writing in the fourth century, regretted the progress of Christianity because it pulled people away from the Roman gods. He said, Atheism [I.e. the Christian faith!] has been specially advanced through the loving service rendered to strangers, and through their care for the burial of the dead. It is a scandal that there is not a single Jew who is a beggar, and that the godless Galileans care not only for their own poor but for ours as well; while those who belong to us look in vain for the help that we should render them."

Bootsy Collins Quotes

"But Im always trying to plan ahead too and in doing so, and in working on this album, Ive met a lot people that I hope to be involved with, on their records and in their situations."

"Mais cest renfantillage - this is childishness! we heard de Grandin pant as we closed in and sought a chance to seize his skeleton-like antagonist. He who fights an imp of Satan as if he were human is a fool!("The Man In Crescent Terrace")"

Vinko Vrbanic Quotes

"Čujem priču o čovjeku koji je prije osamdesete imao 40,000 žena. Pitali ga da li se sjeća ičega zanimljivog, uzbudljivih detalja, itd. Čovjek je odgovorio da se eto ničega posebnog ne sjeća, da mu je to bilo isto kao popiti čašu vode. Ako se ova priča stavi u širi kontekst življenja, onda su sva putovanja, raftinzi na Uni, vožnje motorcikolom po francuskim plažama, izvanbračne avanture, seks, itd., samo divlji oganj, lažna vatra, koja gori ali ne grije, kako reče velikan hrvatskog pjesništva S S Kranjčević u "Mir Vam!". Jedino što je izvorno i istinito su momenti koji su nam dani, a ako su nam dani, nema razloga da za njima tumaramo. Ta, doći će ionako, najčešće iznenada, ako Gospod to tako odluči. Ako odluči?"

Quotes About Thermal Pollution

"All I know about thermal pollution is that if we continue our present rate of growth in electrical energy consumption it will simply take, by the year 2000, all our freshwater streams to cool the generators and reactors." - Author: David R. Brower

Quotes About Crutch

"Or a mother might look at her childs cheek and ask him: "Whats that, a pimple?" and see the flesh puff out a little, split, open, and at the bottom of the split an eye, a laughing eye might appear. Or they might feel things gently brushing against their bodies, like the caresses of reeds to swimmers in a river. And they will realize that their clothing has become living things. And someone else might feel something scratching in his mouth. He goes to the mirror, opens his mouth: and his tongue is an enormous, live centipede, rubbing its legs together and scraping his palate. Hed like to spit it out, but the centipede is a part of him and he will have to tear it out with his own hands. And a crowd of things will appear for which people will have to find new names, stone eye, great three cornered arm, toe crutch, spider jaw." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre

Quotes About Paper Cranes

"Im crying for the little girl whose mother divorced her father, the girl who wanted to fall in love for the first time but wasnt ready for sex, the girl who dated a boy just because he wasnt the first one, the girl who fell hard for the guy with the easy smile and the green eyes, the girl who needed to prove she could hook up on a class trip, the girl who rand for student council just to impress a guy, the girl who lost her best friend, the girl whose father doesnt care anymore, the girl who doesnt have the money for college, the girl who just wants her grandma to fix everything, the girl who doesnt talk to anyone about anything, the girl who just cant fall in love again - even if a sweet guy folds a thousand paper cranes. Just for her." - Author: Sydney Salter

Quotes About Agile Working

"Grace works ahead of us to draw us toward faith, to begin its work in us. Even the first fragile intuition of conviction of sin, the first intimation of our need of God, is the work of preparing, prevening grace, which draws us gradually toward wishing to please God. Grace is working quietly at the point of our desiring, bringing us in time to despair over our own unrighteousness, challenging our perverse dispositions, so that our distorted wills cease gradually to resist the gift of God." - Author: Thomas C. Oden

Quotes About Planet Neptune

"Le Verrier—without leaving his study, without even looking at the sky—had found the unknown planet [Neptune] solely by mathematical calculation, and, as it were, touched it with the tip of his pen!" - Author: Le Verrier

Quotes About The Fragility Of The Mind

"We breathe too fast to be able to grasp things in themselves or to expose their fragility. Our panting postulates and distorts them, creates and disfigures them, and binds us to them. I bestir myself, therefore I emit a world as suspect as my speculation which justifies it; I espouse movement, which changes me into a generator of being, into an artisan of fictions, while my cosmogonic verve makes me forget that, led on by the whirlwind of acts, I am nothing but an acolyte of time, an agent of decrepit universes. (...)If we would regain our freedom, we must shake off the burden of sensation, no longer react to the world by our senses, break our bonds. For all sensation is a bond, pleasure as much as pain, joy as much as misery. The only free mind is the one that, pure of all intimacy with beings or objects, plies its own vacuity." - Author: Emil Cioran

Quotes About Escapar

"Ash: Para escapar del vacío. Estuve mucho tiempo muerto por dentro. Dejar de existir no me parecía muy distinto de lo que ya sentía —pegó la cara a mi hombro y me estremecí—. Pero ahora es distinto. Ahora tengo algo por lo que luchar. No me asusta morir, pero tampoco pienso darme por vencido. No permitiré que te pase nada. Eres mi corazón, mi vida, toda mi existencia" - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Sand

"Her name is Lysandra Keates, and she arrived uninvited on my doorstep a few days ago. I do not know the particulars of her situation as of yet, but my impression is that she is in dire straits. She has begged me to match her with a man." "I am not looking for a mistress!" Andrew snapped, but he couldnt help a brief, powerful image of the girl in the garden…in his bed, her legs wrapped around him as he drove into her." - Author: Jess Michaels

Quotes About Giving Tribute

"For if in careless summer daysIn groves of Ashtaroth we whored,Repentant now, when winds blow cold,We kneel before our rightful lord;The lord of all, the money-god,Who rules us blood and hand and brain,Who gives the roof that stops the wind,And, giving, takes away again;Who spies with jealous, watchful care,Our thoughts, our dreams, our secret ways,Who picks our words and cuts our clothes,And maps the pattern of our days;Who chills our anger, curbs our hope,And buys our lives and pays with toys,Who claims as tribute broken faith,Accepted insults, muted joys;Who binds with chains the poets wit,The navvys strength, the soldiers pride,And lays the sleek, estranging shieldBetween the lover and his bride." - Author: George Orwell

Quotes About Wonderland
