Quotes About Must

"Fortunately the essence of this revelation did not escape Mary despite the angels obscure speech, and, much surprised, she asked him, So Jesus is my son and the son of the Lord, Woman, what are you saying, show some respect for rank and precedence, what you must say is the son of the Lord and me, Of the Lord and of you, No, of the Lord and of you, Youre confusing me, just answer my question, is Jesus our son, You mean to say the Lords son because you only served to bear the child, So the Lord didnt choose me, Dont be absurd (...)

Quotes About Feeling Lost Inside

"Nicholas wanted to scream until his throat bled. Or tear apart a wall of concrete with his bare hands. Anything – anything – to get the woman off his mind. The temptation she offered. The peace, the hope. They were killing him, taking away the need for revenge and replacing it with the need for her. As though she alone could collect the torn pieces of his life, stitch them back together, and help make him whole again.He couldnt take it, feeling again. Needing again after so many years spent in disconnect. It was too much, and if he hadnt run from her like a total coward, he would have succumbed – lost himself inside the woman and given up to oblivion without a single ounce of remorse." - Author: Angela B. Wade

Quotes About Compromising In Love

"There was once a man who lost his shadow. I forget what happened to him, but it was dreadful. As for me, Ive lost my own image. I did not look at it often; but it was there, in the background, just as Maurice had drawn it for me. A straightforward, genuine, "authentic" woman, with out mean-mindedness, uncompromising, but at the same time understanding, indulgent, sensitive, deeply feeling, intensely aware of things and of people, passionately devoted to those she loved and creating happiness for them. A fine life, serene, full, "harmonious." It is dark: I cannot see myself anymore. And what do the others see? Maybe something hideous." - Author: Simone de Beauvoir

Quotes About Missing Something You Never Had

"On the flight to Phillidelphia, she sat alone in the middle of a row of three seats. She could not help but think of how, if she were a mother traveling, there would be two seats filled beside her. One for Lindsey. One for Buckley. But though she was, by definition a mother, she had at some point ceased to be one too. She couldnt claim that right and privilege after missing more than half a decade of their lives. She now knew that being a mother was a calling, something plenty of young girls dreamed of being. But my mother had never had that dream, and she had been punished in the most horrible and unimaginable way for never having wanted me." - Author: Alice Sebold

"My family sat in their pool courtyard," Harah said, "in air bathed by the moisture that arose from the spray of a fountain. There was a tree of portyguls, round and deep in color, near at hand.

In our gardens and, in our flocks, there was peace . . . peace in all the land.""Life was full with happiness until the raiders came," Alia said."Blood ran cold at the scream of friends," Jessica said.
