Stasi Eldredge Quotes

"When God creates Eve, he calls her an ezer kenegdo. It is not good for the man to be alone, I shall make him [an ezer kenegdo] (Gen. 2:18 Alter). Hebrew scholar Robert Alter, who has spent years translating the book of Genesis, says that this phrase is notoriously difficult to translate. The various attempts we have in English are "helper" or "companion" or the notorious "help meet." Why are these translations so incredibly wimpy, boring, flat...disappointing? What is a help meet, anyway? What little girl dances through the house singing "One day I shall be a help meet?" Companion? A dog can be a companion. Helper? Sounds like Hamburger Helper. Alter is getting close when he translates it "sustainer beside him" The word ezer is used only twenty other places in the entire Old Testament. And in every other instance the person being described is God himself, when you need him to come through for you desperately."

Nicholas Christopher Quotes

Katherine Pancol Quotes

"deseo, esa «fuerza Misteriosa que hay detrás de cada cosa». ¡Cómo le gustaban esas palabras de Alfred de Musset! El deseo que hace que toda la superficie de la piel se alumbre y desee la superficie de otra piel de la que no se sabe nada. Antes de conocerse ya son íntimos. Ya no se puede vivir sin la mirada del otro, sin su sonrisa, sin su mano, sin sus labios. Se pierde el rumbo. Se vuelve uno loco. Se le seguiría al fin del mundo, mientras la razón dice: Pero ¿qué sabes tú de él? Nada, nada, ayer mismo no sabíamos ni su nombre. ¡Qué hermoso ardid inventado por la biología para el ser humano, que se creía tan fuerte! ¡Qué triunfo el de la piel sobre el cerebro! El deseo se infiltra en las neuronas y las embota. Nos encadenamos, nos privamos de libertad. En la cama, en todo caso…El último eslabón de vida primitiva"

Thaddeus Stevens Quotes

"Strip the proud nobility of their bloated estates, reduce them to a level with plain republicans, send forth to labor, and teach their children to enter the workshops or handle the plow, and you will thus humble proud traitors."

Philippe Djian Quotes

"I turned my back to her. I felt a slight burning on the back of my neck."Listen to me," I went on. "I never was much for fucking around, I never got much out of it. I know that everybody else does it; but its no fun if you just do like everybody else. To tell you the truth, it bores me, It does you good to live according to your ideas, to not betray yourself, not cop out at the last minute just because some girl has a nice ass, or someone offers you a huge check, or because the path of least resistance runs by your front door. It does you good to hang tough. Its good for the soul."I turned around to tell her the Big Secret; "Over Dispersal, I choose Concentration. I have one life—the only thing Im interested in is making it shine."

William Lane Craig Quotes

"By setting such strong, harsh dichotomies God taught Israel that any assimilation to pagan idolatry is intolerable. It was His way of preserving Israels spiritual health and posterity. God knew that if these Canaanite children were allowed to live, they would spell the undoing of Israel. The killing of the Canaanite children not only served to prevent assimilation to Canaanite identity but also served as a shattering, tangible illustration of Israels being set exclusively apart for God."

Dean Jackson Quotes

"when a child gives you a gift, even if it is a rock they just picked up, exude gratitude. it may be the only thing they have to give, and they have chosen to give it to you"

Quotes About Prolific

"Ive not been a prolific poet, and it always seemed to me to be a bad idea to feel that you had to produce in order to get... credits. Production of a collection of poems every three years or every five years, or whatever, looks good, on paper. But it might not be good; it might be writing on a kind of automatic pilot." - Author: James Fenton

Quotes About The Smallest Things In Life

"If were open to it, God can use even the smallest thing to change our lives... to change us. It might be a laughing child, car brakes that need fixing, a sale on pot roast, a cloudless sky, a trip to the woods to cut down a Christmas tree, a school teacher, a Dunhill Billiard pipe...or even a pair of shoes. Some people will never believe. They may feel that such things are too trivial, too simple, or too insignificant to forever change a life. But I believe. And I always will." - Author: Donna VanLiere

Quotes About Objective

Quotes About Time And Enjoying Life

"I see a time when the farmer will not need to live in a lonely cabin on a lonely farm. I see the farmers coming together in groups. I see them with time to read, and time to visit with their fellows. I see them enjoying lectures in beautiful halls, erected in every village. I see them gather like the Saxons of old upon the green at evening to sing and dance. I see cities rising near them with schools, and churches, and concert halls, and theaters. I see a day when the farmer will no longer be a drudge and his wife a bond slave, but happy men and women who will go singing to their pleasant tasks upon their fruitful farms. When the boys and girls will not go west nor to the city; when life will be worth living. In that day the moon will be brighter and the stars more glad, and pleasure and poetry and love of life come back to the man who tills the soil." - Author: Hamlin Garland
