[Heade's Calm Is Unsteady, Storm-stirred; We Respond In Our Era To Its Hint Of The Nervous And The Fearful. His Weather Is Interior Weather, In A Sense, And He Perhaps Was, If Far From The First To Portray A Modern Mood, An Ambivalent Mood Tinged With Dread And Yet Imbued With A Certain Lightness.The Mood Could Even Be Said To Be Religious: Not An Aggressive Preachment Of God's Grandeur But A Kind Of Zen Poise And Acceptance, Represented By The Small Sedentary Or Plodding Foreground Figures That Appear Uncannily At Peace As The Clouds Blacken And The Lightning Flashes.]

Frank McChebe Quotes

"Is it really true that the only good thing a Blackman can offer in a relationship with a white woman is thunderous sex?Of course, sex plays a vital healing role in every loving relationship.

Quotes About Christian Meditation

"It is true that historic Christianity is in conflict at many points with the collectivism of the present day; it does emphasize, against the claims of society, the worth of the individual soul. It provides for the individual a refuge from all the fluctuating currents of human opinion, a secret place of meditation where a man can come alone into the presence of God. It does give a man courage to stand, if need be, against the world; it resolutely refuses to make of the individual a mere means to an end, a mere element in the composition of society. It rejects altogether any means of salvation which deals with men in a mass; it brings the individual face to face with his God." - Author: J. Gresham Machen

Quotes About Being Laid To Rest

"I may enter a zone of transcendence, in which I marvel at all the accidents of fate, since the beginning of life on earth, that led to my genes being created and my standing in this particular garden in a contemplative and imagining mind. Ive been reading recently how reflection evolved. what a fascinating solution to the rigors of survival…how amazing that a few basic ingredients- the same ones that form the mountains, plants, and rivers- when arranged differently and stressed could result in us.More and more of late, I find myself standing outside of life, with a sense of the human saga laid out before me. it is a private vision, balanced between youth and old age, a vision in which I understand how caught up in striving we humans get, and a little of why, and how difficult it is even to recognize, since it feels integral to our nature and is. but I find it interesting that, according to many religions, life and begins and ends in a garden." - Author: Diane Ackerman
