Terry Tarnoff Quotes

"Hare Rama... I felt a jolt of energy coursing up my spine. Im in Kathmandu, I kept telling myself - as the sounds began to permeate every pore of my body. Its a full moon - Im on a glorious valley at the top of the world, Im actually here - surrounded by the most extraordinary group of people, yes, Im actually here, and the chanting is building and building until it becomes one great shout of ecstasy, and suddenly Im chanting too - Ive moved into the circle, Im pounding on a drum, and Im looking into the eyes of people around me - and Im feeling part of something big and glorious and magnificently insane"

Quotes About Humbling Experiences

"When we begin to reflect Christ, the Bible, when more understood as being centered around Christ, seems to be potentially every mans biography regarding Gods promised experiences and truth for him - his individual, unique path of humbling oneself before the Lord and then being exalted by the Lord back into his true and righteous personhood. Many followers may speak of it merely to try to change other people (before changing themselves), but the prophets speak of it as a living word which miraculously tells their very own experiences." - Author: Criss Jami

Quotes About Mornings With God

"Your cold mornings are filled with the heartache about the fact that although we are not at ease in this world, it is all we have, that it is ours but that it is full of strife, so that all we can call our own is strife; but even that is better than nothing at all, isnt it? And as you split the frost-laced wood with numb hands, rejoice that your uncertainty is Gods will and His grace toward you that that is beautiful, and a part of a greater certainty, as your own father always said in his sermons and to you at home. And as the ax bites into the wood, be comforted in the fact that the ache in your heart and the confusion in your soul means that you are still alive, still human, and still open to the beauty of the world, even though you have done nothing to deserve it. And when you resent the ache in your heart, remember: You will be dead and buried soon enough." - Author: P. Harding

Quotes About Laughter And Life

"But suffering from a life-threatening disease also helped me have a different attitude and perspective. It has given a new intensity to life, for I realize how much I used to take for granted-the love and devotion of my wife, the laughter and playfulness of my grandchildren, the glory of a splendid sunset, the dedication of my colleagues. The disease has helped me acknowledge my own mortality, with deep thanksgiving for the extraordinary things that have happened in my life, not least in recent times. What a spectacular vindication it has been, in the struggle against apartheid, to live to see freedom come, to have been involved in finding the truth and reconciling the differences of those who are the future of our nation." - Author: Desmond Tutu

Quotes About Prison Rehabilitation

"It was a survival thing: he didnt answer back, didnt say anything about job security for prison guards, debate the nature of repentance, rehabilitation, or rates of recidivism. He didnt say anything funny or clever, and, to be on the safe side, when he was talking to a prison official, whenever possible, he didnt say anything at all. Speak when youre spoken to. Do your own time. Get out. Go home. ... Rebuild a life." - Author: Neil Gaiman
