[I Just Got A Rather Nasty Shock. In Looking For Something Or Other I Came Across The Fact That One Of My Cats Is About To Be Nine Years Old, And That Another Of Them Will Shortly Thereafter Be Eight; I Have Been Labouring Under The Delusion They Were About Five And Six. And Yesterday I Happened To Notice In The Mirror That While I Have Long Since Grown Used To My Beard Being Very Grey Indeed, I Was Not Prepared To Discover That My Eyebrows Are Becoming Noticeably Shaggy.

Megan Bostic Quotes

"She gets my need to fix things that have broken along the way, to mend fences. Maybe if we all just tried to put the pieces back together as soon as they fell out of place, the puzzles in our lives would feel more like an accomplishment than a chore."

Peter J Carroll Quotes

"(Q: From an outsiders perspective, what you call "chaos magick" has a lot of rules, discipline, and order involved, and doesnt seem very chaotic at all. What would you say to such a person?)A: I differentiate sternly between Chaos and Entropy. Only highly ordered and structured systems can display complex creative and unpredictable behaviour, and then only if they have the capacity to act with a degree of freedom and randomness. Systems which lack structure and organisation usually fail to produce anything much, they just tend to drift down the entropy gradient. This applies both to people and to organisations."

Benjamin Ford Crouch Quotes

"A part of you feels lost and not at home, while another part just wants to be home. Inside you feel its better to be lost then to be home where you think you belong. Theres a battle inside of you, but you dont know which side to fight on. Is it better to be lost or is it better to be home? When youre lost, you have freedom from yourself. When your lost youre not yourself, you dont know what to do or who you are anymore. When youre home, you feel safe, but "home is a battlefield. Back home theyre all tying to ‘get you. Get you to open up, be somebody youre not sure you are anymore. Or I could be wrong." Maybe its better to be lost then to be home, but sometimes you just got to come home for awhile! Sometimes home is where you should be even when you want to be lost."

Quotes About Fathers In The Bible

"In telling these stories of our Nations past, however, lets not be so zealous in correcting liberal historians that we create our own historical revisionism. If the Founding Fathers were alive today, some of them would not want to go to the typical Evangelical church. Some were influenced by the pagan Enlightenment, as well as the Protestant Reformation. one historical figure (not a Founding Father) whos been misrepresented in our quest to find Christian heroes is Johnny Appleseed. Hes routinely pictured as a nice man who went around scattering apple seeds everywhere and toting a Bible under his arm. The fact is, Johnny Appleseed was a missionary for Swedenbogrism, a spiritist cult. This cult taught many false doctrines and claimed that the writings of the Apostle Paul had no place in the Bible. When a child hears that Johnny Appleseed is a godly hero and then discovers that he was in fact a cult member, what will he logically conclude about everything hes been taught?" - Author: Gregg Harris

Quotes About Gay Love

"Single parents - both women and men - can play as critical a role as the traditional two-parent family, and gay and lesbian parents can, and do, raise happy, resilient children.

Quotes About Bertie

"I worship her, Bertie! I worship the very ground she treads on!" continued the patient, in a loud, penetrating voice. Fred thompson and one or two fellows had come in, and McGarry, the chappie behind the bar, was listening with his ears flapping. But theres no reticence about Bingo.
