[I See The Christian World Like This: We've Inherited A Divided Map Of The Truth, And Each Of Us Has A Piece. Our Traditions Teach Us That No One Else Has A Valid Map And That Our Own Church's Piece Shows Us All The Terrain And Roads That Exist. 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.]

Francisco Costa Quotes

"I dont listen to music when designing. We create in silence. I go through a torturous process because everything has to be precise and right."

Marceline Desbordes Valmore Quotes

"Love You asked if love makes one happy. His promises yes, be it for a day. Ah, who wouldnt want to live one day for love Then die? For life does live in love. As lover full of gentleness and fear, With his fires I painted his suffering, On his portrait I shed so many tears That his image became much less charming. If smile, that unexpected gleam, Broke out sometimes amidst my tears, It was love, unarmed, it was him, And heaven with him disappears. Deprived of love, the hearts icy. Yet he burns all, and poisons all. He sure knows how to rend a soul. Ask him if he makes one happy! Youll know, whatever may occur, That love will win by force or grace; And in the slow-healing fever he made You will suffer and make others suffer. Once found, his absence is torture, And when hes back, one shakes every hour. Often its death that lives in love. And yet, love does make one happy."

Gayle Roper Quotes

"Find a woman who makes you feel more alive. She wont make life perfect but shell make it infinitely more interesting. And then love her with all thats in you."

"Sometimes you go into an audition and youll do what you think the character is, and then if they agree, then its awesome and youll book it maybe, and youll live happily ever after. But sometimes they dont agree."

Krystle Jones Quotes

"I glanced at him sidelong, seeing his jaw clench. "Sloane, we almost died. Youre not fine. I wish you wouldnt try to shut me out." "So?" I shrugged. "We almost died, which we should be used to by now. Id be worried if something or someone wasnt trying to kill us. Then Id know something was seriously wrong."

Judith Barrington Quotes

"Susan Griffin describes it as a time when "there is no intrinsic authority to my words." "I...clean off my desk. I make telephone calls. I know I am avoiding the typewriter. I know that in my mind, where there might be words, there is simply a blankness. I may try to write and then my words bore me." But when the time is right, the waiting will have been worth it. "Because each time I write, each time the authentic words break through, I am changed. The older order that I was collapses and dies. I lose control. I do not know exactly what words will appear on the page. I follow language. I follow the sound of the words, and I am surprised and transformed by what I record." Excerpt from "Thoughts on Writing: A Diary," in The Writer on her Work."

Sean William Scott Quotes

"This was a really big opportunity. This script was even mediocre. The idea was great, but Jay came on with his guys made it great and very specific. It all came together well."

Tomas Moulian Quotes

"El olvido de que la democracia es una deliberación sobre finalidades, sobre las cuales a la ciencia, ni siquiera la economía, no les corresponde dirimir, es una amnesia muy grave pues significa olvidar el fundamento de la democracia."

Quotes About Invisible Man

"In a world so empty of human life, there was comfort in the thought that an invisible realm of spirits was aware of their existence, cared about their actions, and perhaps directed their steps. Even a stern or inimical spirit who cared enough to demand certain actions of appeasement was better than the heartless disregard of a harsh and indifferent world, in which their lives were entirely in their own hands, with no one else to turn to in time of need, not even in their thoughts." - Author: Jean M. Auel

Quotes About Exponents

"Do not all theists insist that there can be no morality, no justice, honesty or fidelity without the belief in a Divine Power? Based upon fear and hope, such morality has always been a vile product, imbued partly with self-righteousness, partly with hypocrisy. As to truth, justice, and fidelity, who have been their brave exponents and daring proclaimers? Nearly always the godless ones: the Atheists; they lived, fought, and died for them. They knew that justice, truth, and fidelity are not conditioned in heaven, but that they are related to and interwoven with the tremendous changes going on in the social and material life of the human race; not fixed and eternal, but fluctuating, even as life itself." - Author: Emma Goldman

Quotes About Sun Rising

"Do you think you love that fellow?""I dont know." She closed her eyes, but the tears overflowed nevertheless. "All I know is that he opened a door into a whole new world I never even knew existed. Ive stepped through that door, and I cant return.(...)Its like being blind from birth and then one day suddenly being able to see. And not just see, but to witness the sun rising in all her glory across the azure sky. The dusky lavenders and blues lightening to pinks and reds, spreading across the horizon until the entire earth is lit. Until one has to blink and fall to ones knees in awe at the light.(...)Even if one were to be made blind again in the next instant, one would ever after remember and know what was missed. What could be." - Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

Oh, its magical when all the candles are lit. Christmas trees are quite the fashion in New York, where I was brought up. It started as a German tradition, and its catching on rapidly in America, though its not common in England. Yet." "The royal family has had Christmas trees for some time," Annabelle said. "Queen Charlotte always put one up at Windsor. And Ive heard that Prince Albert has continued the tradition after the manner of his German heritage."
