Pierre Abelard Quotes

"For my part, the more I went forward in the study of letters, and ever more easily, the greater became the ardour of my devotion to them, until in truth I was so enthralled by my passion for learning that, gladly leaving to my brothers the pomp of glory in arms, the right of heritage and all the honours that should have been mine as the eldest born, I fled utterly from the court of Mars that I might win learning in the bosom of Minerva. And -- since I found the armory of logical reasoning more to my liking than the other forms of philosophy, I exchanged all other weapons for these, and to the prizes of victory in war I preferred the battle of minds in disputation."

Mary Lou Williams Quotes

"Quite a few musicians came to our house. And my ma took me to hear many more, hoping to encourage in me a love of music. But she wouldnt consent to my having music lessons, for she feared I might end up as she had done - unable to play except from paper."

David H Chilton Quotes

"There is a very important connection between the Churchs worldview and the Churchs hymns. If your heart and mouth are filled with songs of victory, you will tend to have an eschatology of dominion; if, instead, your songs are fearful, expressing a longing for escape-or if they are weak, childish ditties-your worldview and expectations will be escapist and childish. Historically, the basic hymnbook for the Church has been the Book of Psalms. The largest book of the Bible is the Book of Psalms, and God providentially placed it right in the middle of the Bible, so that we couldnt miss it! Yet how many churches use the Psalms in musical worship? It is noteworthy that the Churchs abandonment of dominion eschatology coincided with the Churchs abandonment of the Psalms."

Johann Von Schiller Quotes

Jamie Bamber Quotes

"Back in the Eighties, Id buy the biggest Benetton jumper I could find and would wear it long-sleeved, hanging off my shoulders, with a varsity jacket and a baseball cap on back to front with a quiff. I was the smallest boy in my class, and I looked like a reject from New Kids On The Block. Terrible."

Barbara Casey Quotes

"Look, Charlie," said Vince leaning back in his chair. "Its real simple. We will be four people--two men and two women--I figure its better to have two women instead of three men and one woman so shell have someone she can confide in and all. Women need that kind of thing. Anyway, well be four people--friends--housemates--equal partners. Well be an alliance. Well be just like family. And well help take care of one another. Well have a nice home, each with our own private bedroom and bathroom, and a nice yard with flowers.""And maybe a vegetable garden," added Charlie."Thats it," grinned Vince."

Quotes About Two Sides To A Person

"My mind was spinning from the symmetry of this equation I suddenly faced: magical on one side, scientific on the other, a dark pulsing myth and an acceptable reality.... The explanations were like two sides of the same coin, and the side that I favored revealed something essential about the person I was. Prior to investigating Ashley, with little hesitation Id have believed the side most others would, the side that was logical, rational, exact. But now, much to my own shock, like a man who suddenly realized he was no longer a person he recognized, that other impossible, illogical, mad side still had a very firm grip on me." - Author: Marisha Pessl

Quotes About Fear In The Things They Carried

"I thought of something I learned from reading Crazy Horse: The Strange Man of the Oglalas by Mari Sandoz. Crazy Horse believes that he will be victorious in battle, but if he stops to take spoils from the battlefield, he will be defeated. He tattoos lightning bolts on the ears of his horses so the sight of them will remind him of this as he rides. I tried to apply this lesson to the things at hand, careful not to take spoils that were not rightfully mine." - Author: Patti Smith

It looks all hairy and wrinkled like some small animal died between their legs, but Gerardos is like two plums in a velvet bag..."Derek, whod been lingering in the doorway, took a careful step to the left behind the wall and disappeared from my view.Kill me, somebody. I raised my hand. "Hold that thought. I need to borrow Andrea for a minute."I grabbed her arm and pulled her into the hallway. Behind us Raphael growled, "Dont leave me!"Andrea leaned towards me. "Plums.""Listen..."Andrea raised her hands, imitating holding plums the size of small coconuts, and moved them up and down." - Author: Ilona Andrews

Quotes About Fully Living Life

"To attain something desired is to discover how vain it is; and…though we live all our lives in expectation of better things, we often at the same time long regretfully for what is past. The present, on the other hand, is regarded as something quite temporary and serving only as the road to our goal. That is why most men discover when they look back on their life that they have the whole time been living ad interim, and are surprised to see that which they let go by so unregarded and unenjoyed was precisely their life, was precisely in expectation of which they lived." - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
