[I Bargained With Life For A Penny,And Life Would Pay No More, However I Begged At EveningWhen I Counted My Scanty Store;For Life Is Just An Employer,He Gives You What You Ask,But Once You Have Set The Wages,Why, You Must Bear The Task.I Worked For A Menial's Hire,Only To Learn, Dismayed,That Any Wage I Had Asked Of Life,Life Would Have Paid.]

G Thomas Quotes

"Knowing why we are married & should stay married is crucial. The key question is: Will we approach marriage from a God-centered view or a man-centered view? In a man-centered view, we will maintain our marriage as long as our earthly comforts, desires, & expectations are met. In a God-centered view, we preserve our marriage because it brings glory to God & points a sinful world to a reconciling Creator."

Quotes About The Good Guy Never Winning

"to Hegel, history was like a running river. Every tiny movement in the water at a given spot in the river is determined by the falls and eddies in the water higher upstream. But these movements are determined, too, by the rocks and bends in the river at the point where you are observing it.the history of thought--or of reason--is like this river. The thoughts that are washed along with the current of past tradition, as well as the material conditions prevailing at the time, help to determine how you think. You can therefore never claim that any particular thought is correct for ever and ever. But the thought can be correct from where you stand" - Author: Jostein Gaarder

Where the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of Communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?Two things result from this fact.I. Communism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be in itself a power.II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Specter of Communism with a Manifesto of the party itself ." - Author: Karl Marx
