[David Set His Foot In A Gap Higher Up The Barbed Wire...When Would The Searchlight Come?They Could Not Be Certain Of Hitting Him In The Dark...and If They Did Not Hurry, He Would Be Over...Why Didn't They Hurry Up. Then He Stopped. He Would Run No More.When The Beam Of Light Caught Him,they Should See Him Walking Away Quite Calmly. Then They Would Not Enjoy It So Much; They Would Feel Cheated. The Thought Filled David With Triumph. I Am David]

Roger E Olson Quotes

"Surely we can only come to understand each others beliefs by means of direct encounter and open, honest discussion. In the meantime, many free churches invite all believers in Jesus Christ to the Table for the sake of true spiritual unity that transcends intellectual differences of interpretation. Withholding sacramental sharing on the basis of disagreement about the nature of the Lords Supper seems odd to us. What two people think exactly alike about the act? We are not offended by Catholics closed Communion, but we find it odd and exclusive. It places intellectual understanding above fellowship among disciples of Jesus Christ."

"The other night I took her on-out of pity-and what do you think the crazy bitch had done to herself? She had shaved it clean ... not a speck of hair on it.

Quotes About Magic Goodreads

"He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I wont be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. Thats why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself." - Author: Aravind Adiga
