Paul Harding Quotes

"The silver lining of those years when I was trying to get Tinkers published but couldnt were the years when I had to decide, Why do I want to be a writer? I realized that writing is the thing itself; writing is not a means to publication, writing is not a predicate of publication, so I spent years making art for arts sake."

Quotes About San Sebastian

"I wonder if Im being disloyal, if being with Didier means Im forgetting about Jones. But every time I go in a drain, or past a church, I think of him.

Quotes About Tinta

"-No siempre existe un noble propósito. A menudo, hay una razón, la necesidad de salvar a alguien o algo: tu amigo, tu amante, un inocente que no merece resultar herido. A veces es una razón puramente egoísta. Uno puede luchar por fortalecer su cuerpo, por su buen nombre o por su cordura. A veces, es solo un trabajo, pero decidir luchar y hacerlo son dos cosas bien distintas." - Author: Ilona Andrews

Quotes About Redemption In The Bible

"The gospel is unintelligible to most people today, especially in the West, because their own particular stories are remote from the story of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation that is narrated in the Bible. Our focus is introspective and narrow, confided to our own immediate knowledge, experience, and intuition. Trying desperately to get others, including God, to make us happy, we cannot seem to catch a glimpse of the real story that gives us a meaningful role." - Author: Michael S. Horton

Quotes About Aire

"The take-home message is that we should blame religion itself, not religious extremism - as though that were some kind of terrible perversion of real, decent religion. Voltaire got it right long ago: Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. So did Bertrand Russell: Many people would sooner die than think. In fact they do." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Emancipation Day

"An interesting contrast between the geology of the present day and that of half a century ago, is presented by the complete emancipation of the modern geologist from the controlling and perverting influence of theology, all-powerful at the earlier date. As the geologist of my young days wrote, he had one eye upon fact, and the other on Genesis; at present, he wisely keeps both eyes on fact, and ignores the pentateuchal mythology altogether. The publication of the Principles of Geology brought upon its illustrious author a period of social ostracism; the instruction given to our children is based upon those principles. Whewell had the courage to attack Lyells fundamental assumption (which surely is a dictate of common sense) that we ought to exhaust known causes before seeking for the explanation of geological phenomena in causes of which we have no experience." - Author: author

Quotes About Faith And Love From The Bible

"You can have everything in the world, but if you dont have love, none of it means crap," he said promptly. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love always forgives, trusts, supports, and endures. Love never fails. When every star in the heavens grows cold, and when silence lies once more on the face of the deep, three things will endure: faith, hope, and love." And the greatest of these is love," I finished. "Thats from the Bible." First Corinthians, chapter thirteen," Thomas confirmed. "I paraphrased. Father makes all of us memorize that passage. Like when parents put those green yucky-face stickers on the poisonous cleaning products under the kitchen sink." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Gash

"The boy gestured with his chin at Dimity. "She was shot." He sounded remarkably unconcerned for a brother with any degree of affection for his sibling."Good lord!" Sophronia climbed in to see to her new friends health. The bullet had grazed Dimitys shoulder. It had ripped her dress and left a partly burned gash behind, but didnt look all that bad. Sophronia checked to make certain Dimity had no other injuries. Then she sat back on her heels."Is that all? Ive had worse scrapes from drinking tea. Why has she come over all crumpled?"Pillover rolled his eyes. "Faints at the sight of blood, our Dimity. Always has. Weak nerves,father says. It doesnt even have to be her blood." - Author: Gail Carriger

Quotes About Whether To Break Up

"And I do. I do wonder, I think about it all the time. What it would be like to kill myself. Because I never really know, I still cant tell the difference, Im never quite certain whether or not Im actually alive. I sit here every single day. Run, I said to myself. Run until your lungs collapse, until the wind whips and snaps at your tattered clothes, until youre a blur that blends into the background. Run, Juliette, run faster, run until your bones break and your shins split and your muscles atrophy and your heart dies because it was always too big for your chest and it beat too fast for too long and you run.Run run run until you cant hear their feet behind you. Run until they drop their fists and their shouts dissolve in the air. Run with your eyes open and your mouth shut and dam the river rushing up behind your eyes. Run, Juliette.Run until you drop dead. Make sure your heart stops before they ever reach you. Before they ever touch you.Run, I said." - Author: Tahereh Mafi
