[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.]

Quotes About Entertaining Friends

"O.K., then, all right, they would adopt a white-trash dog. Ha ha. They could name it Zeke, buy it a little corncob pipe and a straw hat.

Quotes About Fathers Love For Son

"And the way I loved her was like nothing else. This, I decided, was the love all other loves were measured against. They say girls look to marry their fathers, but I decided after having Maxie that we all, every one of us, were looking to marry our mothers. Sitting on the sofa with her wrapped in a soft blanket in my arms, Id think, ‘This baby has it so good. It just seemed that the love Id been searching and hoping for all my life was what Maxie already had right now: two big arms and a lap, a warm blanket, the background music of a heartbeat and a pair of lungs, food at a moments notice, sleep at every urge, and a person totally obsessed with her, whose every moment—waking or otherwise—was totally devoted to her comfort and care. Was that so much to ask for?" - Author: Katherine Center
