Henry Cloud And John Townsend Quotes

"When boundaries are no testablished in the beginning of a marriage, or when tehy break down, marriages break down as well. Or such marriages dont grow past the initial attraction and transform into real intimacy. They never reach the true "knowing" of each other and the ongoing ability to abide in love and to grow as individuals and as a couple--the long-term fulfillment that was Gods design."

Orville Lloyd Douglas Quotes

Julian Barnes Quotes

"I would have to go back into my past and deal with Adrian. My philosopher friend, who gazed on life and decided that any responsible, thinking individual should have the right to reject this gift that had never been asked for - and whose noble gesture re-emphasised with each passing decade the compromise and littleness that most lives consist of. Most lives: my life."

"...În faptă lumea-i visul sufletului nostru. Nu există nici timp, nici spațiu — ele sunt numai în sufletul nostru. Trecut și viitor e în sufletul meu, ca pădurea într-un sâmbure de ghindă, și infinitul asemenea, ca reflectarea cerului înstelat într-un strop de rouă." - Author: Mihai Eminescu

Quotes About Never Giving Up On Life

"Annie said her prayers, read her Bible, and tried not to forget God.

Quotes About Dispossession

"Honour, in the Republic, had never been a goal in itself, only a means to an infinite end. And what was true of her citizens, naturally, was also true of Rome herself.

Out of dispossession could come the renewal of a civilised order." - Author: Tom Holland

Quotes About Bending

"I go to the window, I spot a fly under the curtain, I corner it in a muslin trap and move a murderous forefinger toward it. This moment is not in the program, its something apart, timeless, incomparable, motionless, nothing will come of it this evening or later . . . Mankind is asleep. . . . Alone and without a future in a stagnant moment, a child is asking murder for strong sensations. Since Im refused a mans destiny, Ill be the destiny of a fly. I dont rush matters, Im letting it have time enough to become aware of the giant bending over it. I move my finger forward, the fly bursts, Im foiled! Good God, I shouldnt have killed it! It was the only being in all creation that feared me; I no longer mean anything to anyone. I, the insecticide, take the victims place and become an insect myself. Im a fly, Ive always been one. This time Ive touched bottom." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre

Quotes About Complaints About Life

But thats a good question to ask. Of course we should ask that question and of course its going to offend people. Tough." - Author: Daniel Dennett

Quotes About Disloyal

"And there was a deeper, less visible effect of the Truman loyalty program. Seeing its consequences for certain individuals and fearing its intrusion on their own lives, many in the government sought protection by strongly asserting their anti-Communism. In the public action that ensued, policy was based not on reality but, instinctively or deliberately, on personal caution...Those who urged a militant and sometimes military anti-Communism were considered sound, trustworthy and personally safe; those who questioned such a course were politically unsafe, possible even slightly disloyal." - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith
