[Humanity Is An Organism, Inherently Rejecting All That Is Deleterious, That Is, Wrong, And Absorbing After Trial What Is Beneficial, That Is, Right. If So Disposed, The Architect Of The Universe, We Must Assume, Might Have Made The World And Man Perfect, Free From Evil And From Pain, As Angels In Heaven Are Thought To Be; But Although This Was Not Done, Man Has Been Given The Power Of Advancement Rather Than Of Retrogression. The Old And New Testaments Remain, Like Other Sacred Writings Of Other Lands, Of Value As Records Of The Past And For Such Good Lessons As They Inculcate. Like The Ancient Writers Of The Bible Our Thoughts Should Rest Upon This Life And Our Duties Here. "To Perform The Duties Of This World Well, Troubling Not About Another, Is The Prime Wisdom," Says Confucius, Great Sage And Teacher. The Next World And Its Duties We Shall Consider When We Are Placed In It.]

Michael Gungor Quotes

"This kind of passionate faith can be painful. Not caring is easy. Caring hurts. Caring costs you something. But without this sort of faith, you will never create to your fullest potential. Faith is a gift. Like Ive said, felt belief is not necessarily something that you choose to have or not to have. But it is a gift that you can open yourself to receive."

Deborah Moggach Quotes

"A novel is utterly your own creation, a very private process. I think of a novel as a noun and a screenplay as a verb. In a novel, very little needs to happen; you can explore a persons memories and thoughts and fantasies. In a screenplay, its all action; you must push the story on."

"But who am I if Im not Janie the bulimic? Bulimia has become so much a part of me that I cant remember what it felt like not to purge. Its been this secret that I have hidden from my parents and my friends (well, except for Nancy) and the rest of the world.

Quotes About Top Of The Mountain

"Dont try to change the world; just change yourself. Why? Because the whole world is only relative to the eyes that are looking at it. Your world actually only exists for as long as you exist and with the death of you, includes the death of your world. Therefore, if there is no peace in your heart; you will find no peace in this world, if there is no happiness in your life; you will find no happiness anywhere around you, if you have no love in your heart; you will not find love anywhere and if you do not fly around freely inside your own soul like a bird with perfectly formed wings; then there will never be any freedom for you regardless if you are on a mountaintop removed from all attachments to all of mankind! Even the mountaintop cannot give you freedom if it is not already flying around there inside your own soul! So I say, change yourself. Not the world." - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About God Being Everywhere

"Unless you make yourself equal to God, you cannot understand God: for the like is not intelligible save to the like. Make yourself grow to a greatness beyond measure, by a bound free yourself from the body; raise yourself above all time, become Eternity; then you will understand God. Believe that nothing is impossible for you, think yourself immortal and capable of understanding all, all arts, all sciences, the nature of every living being. Mount higher than the highest height; descend lower than the lowest depth. Draw into yourself all sensations of everything created, fire and water, dry and moist, imagining that you are everywhere, on earth, in the sea, in the sky, that you are not yet born, in the maternal womb, adolescent, old, dead, beyond death. If you embrace in your thought all things at once, times, places, substances, qualities, quantities, you may understand God." - Author: Giordano Bruno

Quotes About Enough Chances

"I dont tell you this story today in order to encourage all of you in the class of 04 to find careers in the music business, but rather to suggest what the next decade of your lives is likely to be about, and that is, trying to ensure that you dont wake up at 32 or 35 or 40 tenured to a life that happened to you when you werent paying strict attention, either because the money was good, or it made your parents proud, or because you were unlucky enough to discover an aptitude for the very thing that bores you to tears, or for any of the other semi-valid reasons people marshal to justify allowing the true passion of their lives to leak away. If youre lucky, you may have more than one chance to get things right, but second and third chances, like second and third marriages, can be dicey propositions, and they dont come with guarantees.... The question then is this: How does a person keep from living the wrong life?" - Author: Richard Russo

Quotes About Neglected Child

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, Woe to those who call evil good, but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbors possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!" - Author: Billy Graham
