In Fact, There Is Much More Terrain, More Roads, And More Truth For Us To See If We Can Accept And Read One Another's Maps, Fitting Them Together To Give Us A Clearer Picture Of The Larger Christian Tradition.]

Mindie Burgoyne Quotes

"Visual and performing artists produce art that lives in the present world. The art of the writer exists in another dimension. Through strings of words and phrases writers inspire their readers to imagine, to conjure images, to suspend disbelief, to enter a world visible only in their minds. It is in that unseen world where the art of the writer lives."

"Unless a story has a specific ending you know when you start it then a story is as long as a story needs to be. Its over when the writer decides its over. (Wed, 22 May 2013)"

Anatole France Quotes

"If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing."

Ev Duran Quotes

"For one to wholly accept and find peace in the realization that he is going to be alone forever, and know this truth, deep within himself, not for a short time, or until he next experiences a fleeting notion of love, but really and truly forever- and be for eternity without the warming blanket of stability and comfort and companionship that so many others compromise so much of themselves for- to face this world with nothing but his own wits, his solitude, his self-deception... that takes a special kind of bravery. A special kind of bravery, and a special kind of cowardice."

Pat Frank Quotes

"When he reached the last hole he saw, far to the west, a series of rockets bloom in the sky. He watched their green and yellow and red petals arch across the horizon, and fade into the gloom of the earth. It was very beautiful, but he recognized them for Chinese rockets."

Quotes About Forces Of Nature

"Obstacles do not appear in your way in order to stop you. Rather, they appear in order to strengthen and hone you and your plans. They are not your enemy. They are your secret ally, but only if you treat them as friendly forces of nature." - Author: Anodea Judith

Quotes About Happy Birthday

"Some social phobics find even positive attention to be aversive. Think of the young child who bursts into tears when guests sing "Happy Birthday" to her at a party—or of Elfriede Jelinek afraid to pick up her Nobel Prize. Social attention—even positive, supportive attention—activates the neurocircuitry of fear. This makes sense from an evolutionary perspective. Calling positive attention to yourself can incite jealousy or generate new rivalries." - Author: Scott Stossel

Quotes About Doing Things To Better Yourself

"You taste injustice, even if its fictional, really taste it,it has a way of doing that. Sometimes, you can never put the shoe on the other foot. We cant go back in time and know what it was like to be a black person then. Even today, when things are supposed to be so much better, not one of you can understand what its like to be black, to live with the knowledge of what happened to your ancestry and still face injustice. But that book makes us taste it and, reading it, we know how bitter that taste is and we know we dont like it. But that bitter wakes you up, and when you wake up, you open your mind to things in this world, you make yourself think. Then youll decide you dont like the taste of injustice, not for you and not for anyone, and youll understand that even though all the battles cant be won, that doesnt mean you wont fight." - Author: Kristen Ashley

Quotes About Theory And Practice

"What never fails inside the mind of an intellectual never works outside the confines of his head. The worlds stubborn refusal to vindicate the intellectuals theories serves as proof of humanitys irrationality, not his own. Thus, the true believer retrenches rather than rethinks; he launches a war on the world, denying reality because it fails to conform to his theories. If intellectuals are not prepared to reconcile theory and practice, then why do they bother to venture outside the ivory tower or the coffeehouse? Why not stay in the world of abstractions and fantasy?" - Author: Daniel J. Flynn
