David Clark Quotes

"...While grace does do away with the need for good works, its grace which also makes good works truly possible. If good works dont play into your salvation, then doing them is a sheer act of love, both for those they benefit and to God. Its a way of solving the conundrum of how can a good work be truly good if the doer of the work expects to benefit from it in any way."-David Clark"

Quotes About Vote Buying

"Well, I spent six or seven years after high school trying to work myself up. Shipping clerk, salesman, business of one kind or another. And its a measly manner of existence. To get on that subway on the hot mornings in summer. To devote your whole life to keeping stock, or making phone calls, or selling or buying. To suffer fifty weeks of the year for the sake of a two-week vacation, when all you really desire is to be outdoors, with your shirt off. And always to have to get ahead of the next fella. And still — thats how you build a future." - Author: Arthur Miller

Quotes About Solidao

"SOLIDAO, LONELINESS.What is it that we call loneliness. It cant simply be the absence of others, you can be alone and not lonely, and you can be among people and yet be lonely. So what is it? ... it isnt only that others are there, that they fill up the space next to us. But even when they celebrate us or give advice in a friendly conversation, clever, sensitive advice: even then we can be lonely. So loneliness is not something simply connected with the presence of others or with what they do. Then what? What on earth?" - Author: Pascal Mercier
