[But We All Suffer. For We All Prize And Love; And In This Present Existence Of Ours, Prizing And Loving Yield Suffering. Love In Our World Is Suffering Love. Some Do Not Suffer Much, Though, For They Do Not Love Much. Suffering Is For The Loving. This, Said Jesus, Is The Command Of The Holy One: "You Shall Love Your Neighbor As Yourself." In Commanding Us To Love, God Invites Us To Suffer.]

Ernesto Quinonez Quotes

"In America, its where you end up that matters, not how you get there. As long as you get there, no one asks questions. You dont ask. You never ask. And if someone does ask how you got there? Its usually a harmless person who never got anything, never got out, died paying rent as he waited for God to deliver him."

Vincent Nichols Quotes

"Faith in God is the gift that takes us beyond our limited self, with all its incessant demands. It opens us to a life that stretches us, enlightens us, and often springs surprises upon us. Such faith, like love, sees that which is invisible and lives by it."

Melanie Dickerson Quotes

"Time blunts the pain and creates a mist over ones memory — at least in the case of death and sorrow. Other types of pain linger longer."

Mario De Sa Carneiro Quotes

"(...) Eu consegui variar a existência - mas variá-la quotidianamente. Eu não tenho só tudo quanto existe - percebe? - ; eu tenho também tudo quanto não existe. (Aliás, apenas o que não existe é belo.) Eu vivo horas que nunca ninguém viveu, horas feitas por mim, sentimentos criados por mim, voluptuosidades só minhas - e viajo em países longínquos, em nações misteriosas que existem para mim, não porque as descobrisse, mas porque as edifiquei. Porque eu edifico tudo. Um dia hei-de mesmo erguer o ideal - não obtê-lo, muito mais: construí-lo. E já o entrevejo fantástico... e todo esguio... todo esguio... a extinguir-se em altura azul... (...)De resto, é evidente, faltam-me as palavras para lhe exprimir as coisas maravilhosas que não existem... Ah! O ideal... o ideal... Vou sonhá-lo este noite... Porque é sonhando que eu vivo tudo. Compreende? Eu dominei os sonhos. Sonho o que quero. Vivo o que quero."

"No. What did you do to it?" "I ate it for breakfast. Check the battery compartment." "Where the hell is that?" "Um, behind the battery door." "Are you punking me?" I heard her fumbling with the phone. "Gem, if I was going to punk you, I wouldnt simply turn off your phone. I would pour honey in your hair while you slept. Or, you know, something like that." "That was you?" she asked, appalled." - Author: Darynda Jones

Quotes About Pretentiousness

"In our own time the whole of Greece has been subject to a low birth rate and a general decrease of the population, owing to which cities have become deserted and the land has ceased to yield fruit, although there have neither been continuous wars nor epidemics...For as men had fallen into such a state of pretentiousness, avarice, and indolence that they did not wish to marry, or if they married to rear the children born to them, or at most as a rule but one or two of them, so as to leave these in affluence and bring them up to waste their substance, the evil rapidly and insensibly grew." - Author: Polybius

Quotes About Art And Music

"Some people majored in English to prepare for law school. Others became journalists. The smartest guy in the honors program, Adam Vogel, a child of academics, was planning on getting a Ph.D. and becoming an academic himself. That left a large contingent of people majoring in English by default. Because they werent left-brained enough for science, because history was too try, philosophy too difficult, geology too petroleum-oriented, and math too mathematical - because they werent musical, artistic, financially motivated, or really all that smart, these people were pursuing university degrees doing something no different from what theyd done in first grade: reading stories. English was what people who didnt know what to major in majored in." - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
