Take me away, she will later lament.pg 5" - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Quotes About Stranded

"Who else is going?" I asked.He shrugged. "Just you and me."My mood promptly shot up past cheerful and went straight to estatic. Me and Dimitri. Alone. In a car.

And would involve us staying overnight in luxury hotels. Maybe wed get stranded in a snowbank, and only body heat would keep us alive."Five hours""Oh."A bit less than Id hoped for.

Quotes About Isaiah 53

"The logic of the Bible says: Act according to Gods "will of command," not according to his "will of decree." Gods "will of decree" is whatever comes to pass. "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that" (James 4:15). Gods "will of decree" ordained that his Son be betrayed (Luke 22:22), ridiculed (Isaiah 53:3), mocked (Luke 18:32), flogged (Matthew 20:19), forsaken (Matthew 26:31), pierced (John 19:37), and killed (Mark 9:31). But the Bible teaches us plainly that we should not betray, ridicule, mock, flog, forsake, pierce, or kill innocent people. That is Gods "will of command." We do not look at the death of Jesus, clearly willed by God, and conclude that killing Jesus is good and that we should join the mockers." - Author: John Piper

Quotes About War Mongers

"It was the sixties, exactly, all we wanted to do was to smoke a lot of dope and ball a lot of chicks. Vietnam, excuse me? Why would I wanna go get my ass shot off in some stinking rice paddy just so Nixon can have his four more years? Screw that, and I wasnt the only one who felt that way. All the big warmongers these days who took a pass on Vietnam, look, Id be the last person on earth to start casting blame. Bush, Cheney, Rove, all those guys, they just did what everybody else was doing and I was right there with em, chicken as anybody. My problem now is how tough and gung-ho they are, all that bring it on crap, I mean, Jesus, show a little humility, people. They ought to be just as careful of your young lives as they were with their own." - Author: Ben Fountain
