"Christianity, in contrast, is for all cultures. This is a theme of the New Testament, St. Johns vision of the redeemed in Revelation 7. Christianity is for every tribe, every nation, every language, every time, for every culture. Thats really quite unique from other religions because Christ died for the sins of the world."

Quotes About Intransigence

"And now, restored to the status of daughter in her own home, Amina began to feel the emotions of other peoples food seeping into her - because Reverend Mother doled out the curries and meatballs of intransigence, dishes imbued with the personality of their creator; Amina ate the fish salans of stubbornness and the birianis of determination. And, although Marys pickles had a partially counteractive effect - since she had stirred into them the guilt of her heart, and the fear of discovery, so that, good as they tasted, they had the power of making those who ate them subject to nameless uncertainties and dreams of accusing fingers - the diet provided by Reverend Mother filled Amina with a kind of rage, and even produced slight signs of improvements in her defeated husband." - Author: Salman Rushdie

Sticking your toes in the water. Pajama pants. Flip-flops. Swimming. Poetry. The absence of smiley faces in an e-mail.What does it look like to you?" - Author: Jennifer E. Smith

Quotes About Like Someone

"Poor Uther. He believed that virtues are handed down through a mans loins! What nonsense! A child is like a calf; if the thing is born crippled you knock it smartly on the skull and serve the cow again. Thats why the Gods made it such a pleasure to engender children, because so many of the little brutes have to be replaced. Theres not much pleasure in the process for women, of course, but someone has to suffer andthank the Gods its them and not us." - Author: Bernard Cornwell

Quotes About Many Best Friends

"Lena was suspicious of many things. But she had earned her suspicions about boys. Lena knew boys. They never looked beyond your looks. They pretended to be your friend to get you to trust them, and as soon as you trusted them, they went in for the grope. They pretended to want to work on a history project or volunteer on your blood drive committee to get your attention. But as soon as they got it through their skulls that you didnt want to go out with them, they suddenly werent interested in time lines or dire blood shortages. Worst of all, on occasion they even went out with one of your best friends to get close to you, and broke that same best friends heart when the truth came out. Lean preferred plain guys to cute ones, but even the plain ones disappointed her." - Author: Ann Brashares

Quotes About Imaginative

"It was a woman in Minnesota who clarified this shift for me. She pointed out that her mother called herself a housewife. She, on the other hand, called herself a stay at home mom. The change in nomenclature reflects the shift in cultural emphasis: the pressures on women have gone from keeping an immaculate house to being an irreproachable mom … Back in the fifties, women were told to master the differences between oven cleaners and floor wax and special sprays for wood; today theyre told to master the differences between toys that hone problem solving skills and those that encourage imaginative play." - Author: Jennifer Senior
