[Because The Egoic Mind Has Led Us To Feel Separate From Our Immortal Ground Of Being Over The Millennia, We Have Invented A Number Of Immortality Symbols To Give Us A Precarious Sense Of Security And Identity In Life. Traditionally, These Have Been Religious In Character, Such As The Belief In Everlasting Life After Death, In The West, And The Belief In Reincarnation, In The East. However, Today, It Is Money That Provides The Primary Immortality Symbol. It Is Our Obsession For Money That Is Driving Humanity To Extinction. For When We Do Not Face Our Fears With Full Consciousness And Intelligence, These Fears Will Eventually Come Along To Haunt Us.]

Quotes About Athanasius

"Living in filth was regarded by great numbers of holy men, who set an example to the Church and to society, as an evidence of sanctity. St. Jerome and the Breviary of the Roman Church dwell with unction on the fact that St. Hilarion lived his whole life long in utter physical uncleanliness; St. Athanasius glorifies St. Anthony because he had never washed his feet; St. Abrahams most striking evidence of holiness was that for fifty years he washed neither his hands nor his feet; St. Sylvia never washed any part of her body save her fingers; St. Euphraxia belonged to a convent in which the nuns religiously abstained from bathing. St. Mary of Egypt was emninent for filthiness; St. Simon Stylites was in this respect unspeakable - the least that can be said is, that he lived in ordure and stench intolerable to his visitors." - Author: Andrew Dickson White

Quotes About Never Ending Road

"It is a naive sort of feminism that insists that women prove their ability to do all the things that men do. This is a distortion and a travesty. Men have never sought to prove that they can do all the things women do. Why subject women to purely masculine criteria? Women can and ought to be judged by the criteria of femininity, for it is in their femininity that they participate in the human race. And femininity has its limitations. So has masculinity. That is what weve been talking about. To do this is not to do that. To be this is not to be that. To be a woman is not to be a man. To be married is not to be single - which may mean not to have a career. To marry this man is not to marry all the others. A choice is a limitation." - Author: Elisabeth Elliot

Quotes About Irrevocable

"It is the moment when our resolution seems about to become irrevocable - when the fatal iron gates are about to close upon us - that tests our strength. Then, after hours of clear reasoning and firm conviction, we snatch at any sophistry that will nullify our long struggles, and bring us the defeat that we love better than victory." - Author: George Eliot
