Tom Harpur Quotes

"A too often forgotten truth is that you can live through actual events of history and completely miss the underlying reality of whats going. What history misses, the myth clearly expresses. The myth in the hands of a genius give us a clear picture of the inner import of life itself."

Anthony Venn Brown Quotes

"Even if you believe the Genesis record of creation youll see that God did not create a black and white world of male and female. Creation is not black and white, it is amazingly diverse, like a rainbow, including sexualities and a variety of non-heterosexual expressions of behaviour, affection and partnering occurring in most species, including humans. The ability to reproduce is only a small part of the creation. Before God created male and female he made an even more important statement; ‘it is not good for mankind to be alone. This is fundamental to all heterosexual and same-sex relationships. Lasting relationships are based on love, trust and commitment, not sex or reproduction. So stop with the ‘God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve quote already. Its boring and an insult to the creator of this incredible universe."

Sue Johanson Quotes

"Kids and adults have sex for many, many reasons... Put out a question box."

Jennetta Billhimer Quotes

"But when we make choices that are different than what our friends are doing, it might seem to them that we are questioning their choices - even if it has nothing to do with them.... And what is the sense in feeling guilty about making different choices than our mothers and the other women before us? Our mothers did the best they could with what they had available to them. Our choices, if different from theirs, are not a denouncement of theirs."

Quotes About Born To Win

"She was born as music–a single, mellow note suspended in the air. Suspended as if strung from nothing, held into possibilities of sound. Her clear note hung a lone, sweet tone in the midst of us all; as silence captured its ache and tenderly, reluctantly released it, dipped it lower into a breath of melancholy only to lift again to its earlier height both rich and real and complete–one solitary note swaying into the early dawn.Emily arrived in the cold, grey hours of the newborn year, between the breathing dark and the pearl, winter light. A child of the dawn, before dawn broke." - Author: Debi Cimo

Quotes About The Heat Of Summer

"But we didnt, not in the moonlight, or by the phosphorescent lanterns of lightning bugs in your back yard, not beneath the constellations we couldnt see, let alone decipher, or in the dark glow that replaced the real darkness of night, a darkness already stolen from us, not with the skyline rising behind us while a city gradually decayed, not in the heat of summer while a Cold War raged, despite the freedom of youth and the license of first love—because of fate, karma, luck, what does it matter?—we made not doing it a wonder, and yet we didnt, we didnt, we never did." - Author: Stuart Dybek

Quotes About After Break Up

"It was exhausting,the exertions your mind went through after a breakup. Past events has to be recalled and parsed,conversations reevaluated. Clues were matched together like socks from the dryer. After all that effort, the wonder was not that you had broken up, the wonder was that you hadnt noticed all the signs. Most people dont have the time to put something in context at the moment its happening to them....Most of us are too busy remembering the dentist appointment and trying to get to work on time, and remembering to clean the fishs bowl before ti gets tail rot." - Author: Lisa Kleypas

Quotes About Reformed

"In consequence of Darwins reformed Theory of Descent, we are now in a position to establish scientifically the groundwork of a non-miraculous history of the development of the human race. ... If any person feels the necessity of conceiving the coming into existence of this matter as the work of a supernatural creative power, of the creative force of something outside of matter, we have nothing to say against it. But we must remark, that thereby not even the smallest advantage is gained for a scientific knowledge of nature. Such a conception of an immaterial force, which as the first creates matter, is an article of faith which has nothing whatever to do with human science." - Author: Darwin

Quotes About Humble And Kind

"But saints and angels behold that glory of God which consists in the beauty of His holiness; and it is this sight only that will melt and humble the hearts of men, wean them from the world, draw them to God, and effectually change them. A sight of the awful greatness of God may overpower mens strength, and be more than they can endure; but if the moral beauty of God be hid, the enmity of the heart will remain in its full strength. No love will be enkindled; the will, instead of being effectually gained, will remain inflexible. But the first glimpse of the moral and spiritual glory of God shining into the heart produces all these effects as it were with omnipotent power, which nothing can withstand." - Author: Jonathan Edwards

Quotes About Chosing

"Witness testimony is always flawed. Its better than circumstantial evidence, sure, but people arent camcorders; they dont record every action and reaction, and the very act of remembering involves chosing words, actions and images. In other words, any witness who was supposed to be giving a court facts is really just giving them a version of fiction." - Author: Jodi Picoult
