Quotes About Being Perturbed

"The Earl of Woolsey was indeed completely nude. He did not seem particularly perturbed by this fact, but Miss Tarabotti felt the sudden need to close her eyes tight and think about asparagus or something equally mundane. Coiled about him as she was, her chin wedged over one of his massive shoulders, she was being forced to look down, directly at a nicely round, but embarrassing bare, moon.

It was all a very heady - or bottomy? -experience." - Author: Gail Carriger

Her husband was so worried he looked to start crying himself." - Author: Gail Carriger

Quotes About Serving God

"Neither son loved the father for himself. They both were using the father for their own self-centered ends rather than loving, enjoying, and serving him for his own sake.

Its a shocking message: Careful obedience to Gods law may serve as a strategy for rebelling against God." - Author: Timothy Keller
