Mark Mossa Quotes

"What our closest friends do for us is to teach us true selflessness. We learn that while it might be safer for them if we keep them out, true friendship means letting them in. We cannot decide for them what they are willing to suffer with us and for us. While we certainly dont want to see our friends suffer, friendship isnt about protecting each other from pain so much as it is about helping each other to become what God has called us to be."

Benjamin Malachi Franklin Quotes

"The WeaverMy life is but a weavingbetween my Lord and me;I cannot choose the colorsHe worketh steadily.Oft times He weaveth sorrowAnd I, in foolish pride,Forget He sees the upper,And I the underside.Not til the loom is silentAnd the shuttles cease to fly,Shall God unroll the canvasAnd explain the reason why.The dark threads are as needfulIn the Weavers skillful hand,As the threads of gold and silverIn the pattern He has planned."

Clement Clarke Moore Quotes

Quotes About Uncommon

"Just about all men need a woman in one way or another, unless theyre very strange indeed. Tormenting you refreshes him. And you shouldnt underestimate the gratitude all men feel for womens beauty. Men who truly dont like flowers are very uncommon and men who dont respond to a beautiful woman are even more uncommon. Its not primarily sexual; its a lifting of the spirits beauty gives. Hell be in to torment you, and tease you, and enrage you, but really to have a good, refreshing look at you." - Author: Robertson Davies

Quotes About Dawkins

"I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths.

Quotes About Sino

"«Porque felizmente (pensaba) el hombre no está solo hecho de desesperación sino de fe y esperanza; no solo de muerte sino también de anhelo de vida; tampoco únicamente de soledad sino de momentos de comunión y amor. Porque si prevalece la desesperación, todos nos dejaríamos morir o nos mataríamos, y eso no es de ninguna manera lo que sucede. Lo que demostraba, a su juicio, la poca importancia de la razón, ya que no es razonable mantener esperanzas en este mundo en que vivimos. Nuestra razón, nuestra inteligencia, constantemente nos están probando que este mundo es atroz, motivo por el cual la razón es aniquiladora y conduce al escepticismo, al cinismo y finalmente a la aniquilación. Pero, por suerte, el hombre no es casi nunca un ser razonable, y por eso la esperanza renace una y otra vez en medio de las calamidades.»" - Author: Ernesto Sabato
