Jacqui Stedmon Quotes

"Words, language and representation of meaning are an important aspect of reflective practice. Slips of the tongue, dream interpretations and the whole idea of a talking cure rests on our capacity to reflect on what is (or is not) said."

Mary Shelley Quotes

"But I have one want which I have never yet been able to satisfy; and the absence of the object of which I now feel as a most severe evil. I have no friend, Margaret: when I am glowing with the enthusiasm of success, there will be none to participate my joy; if I am assailed by disappointment, no one will endeavour to sustain me in dejection. I shall commit my thoughts to paper, it is true; but that is a poor medium for the communication of feeling. I desire the company of a man who could sympathise with me; whose eyes would reply to mine. You may deem me romantic, my dear sister, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend. I have no one near me, gentle yet courageous, possessed of a cultivated as well as of a capacious mind, whose tastes are like my own, to approve or amend my plans. How would such a friend repair the faults of your poor brother!"

Mark X Quotes

"Ah Buddha, you boastful charlatan. You may have learned nothing after 6 years of suffering, but then what of 7 years? What of 17? What might you have learned from a lifetime of pain? [...] From what I can tell, the wisest man in all these scriptures was the first person Buddha ever tried to teach - an Ajivika named Upaka. Buddha bragged to him of how he achieved nirvana, to which Upaka simply replied: "That may be so," and walked away."

Quotes About Hosea

"We must each of us do our home work. My people are destroyed, said Hosea, for lack of knowledge. We must be wise as serpents; for as the Apostle Paul said, We wrestle against the rulers of darkness, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We are going through what J. Reuben Clark once termed the greatest propaganda campaign of all time. We cannot believe all we read, and what we can believe is not all of genuine value. We must sift. We must learn by study and prayer. Study the scriptures and study the mortals who have been most consistently accurate about the most important things. When your freedom is at stake, your information best be accurate." - Author: Ezra Taft Benson

Quotes About Necks

"I had to learn to think, feel and see in a totally new fashion, in an uneducated way, in my own way, which is the hardest thing in the world. I had to throw myself into the current, knowing that I would probably sink. The great majority of artists are throwing themselves in with life-preservers around their necks, and more often than not it is the life-preserver which sinks them." - Author: Henry Miller

Quotes About Roughness

"He stands watching me, motionless in those drawstring pants, his legs braced in a fighting stance, his eyes bursting with need.

Quotes About Being A Leader Not A Boss

"Time will change it, Im well aware, as winter changes the trees — my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath — a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff — hes always, always in my mind — not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself — but as my own being — so, dont talk of our separation again — it is impracticable.-" - Author: Emily Brontë

Quotes About Consecrated Life

"Those who follow Christ are distinct from the world and the ways of the flesh. As Christ says in John 17:17, they are consecrated or "set apart" from the world, and the distinctive thing about Christians is that they have the truth. Being not of this world, believers are "set apart" by the truth. And Jesus asserts in the same verse that "Gods Word is truth."As we walk before the unbeliever then, the thing that makes us different is our submission to the Word of God. Our lives and thinking are founded on Scripture, while the essence of the unbelievers life is rejection of the revelation of God. Our presupposition of Scriptures truth is at diametric odds with that of the world, and because we have been given the Word of God, the world hates us. From the outset, the focus of the worlds opposition to the faith is the Word of God itself." - Author: Greg L. Bahnsen

Quotes About Short Friendships

"Really to believe in human nature while striving to know the thousand forces that warp it from its ideal development-to call for and expect much from men and women, and not to be disappointed and embittered if they fall short- to try to do good with people rather than to them- this is my religion on its human side. And if God exists, I think that he must be in the warm sun, in the kindly actions of the people we know and read of, in the beautiful things of art and nature, and in the closeness of friendships." - Author: Randolph Bourne

Quotes About Judgemental

"Its not that kind of love. Its the real kind. The unconditional kind. The nonjudgemental kind. Not the physical kind. I love you as a fellow soul who inhabits this earth. I love you as a fellow immortal. I love you because I finally understand what made you the way you are. And if I could change it, I would. But I cant—so I choose to love you instead. And my hope is that my acceptance of you will spur you to do something good too, but if not—" I shrug. "At least I can say I tried." - Author: Alyson Noel
