Quotes About Nagging Woman

"In the struggle to remain a complete person and to love from her fullness instead of her inadequacy a woman may appear hard. She may feel her early conditioning tugging her in the direction of surrender, but she ought to remember that she was originally loved for herself; she ought to hang on to herself and not find herself nagging, helpless, irritable and trapped. Perhaps I am not old enough yet to promise that the self-reliant woman is always loved, but she cannot be lonely as long as there are people in the world who need her joy and her strength, but certainly in my experience it has always been so. Lovers who are free to go when they are restless always come back; lovers who are free to change remain interesting. The bitter animosity and obscenity of divorce is unknown where individuals have not become Siamese twins. A lover who comes to your bed of his own accord is more likely to sleep with his arms around you all night than a lover who has nowhere else to sleep." - Author: Germaine Greer

Quotes About Lucian Freud

"Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross." - Author: Michael Ondaatje

Quotes About Feeling Convicted

"[The] term ‘decide has always seemed to me to be quite wrong…A sinner does not ‘decide for Christ; the sinner ‘flies to Christ in utter helplessness and despair saying —Foul, I to the fountain fly,Wash me, Saviour, or I die.No man truly comes to Christ unless he flies to Him as his only refuge and hope, his only way of escape from the accusations of conscience and the condemnation of Gods holy law. Nothing else is satisfactory. If a man says that having thought about the matter and having considered all sides he has on the whole decided for Christ, and if he has done so without any emotion or feeling, I cannot regard him as a man who has been regenerated. The convicted sinner no more ‘decides for Christ than the poor drowning man ‘decides to take hold of that rope that is thrown to him and suddenly provides him with the only means of escape. The term is entirely inappropriate." - Author: D. Martyn Lloyd Jones
