Quotes About Parties And Drinking

"Thirty- eight years old and he was finished. He sipped at the coffee and remembered where he had gone wrong -- or right. Hed simply gotten tired -- of the insurance game, of the small offices and high glass partitions, the clients; hed simply gotten tired of cheating on his wife, of squeezing secretaries in the elevator and in the halls;hed gotten tired of Christmas parties and New Years parties and birthdays, and payments on new cars and furniture payments -- light, gas, water -- the whole bleeding complex of necessities.Hed gotten tired and quit, thats all. The divorce came soon enough and the drinking came soon enough, and suddenly he was out of it. He had nothing, and he found out that having nothing was difficult too. It was another type of burden. If only there were some gentler road in between. It seemed a man only had two choices -- get in on the hustle or be a bum." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Story Maker

"God first appeared on the scene of human history in the role of a matchmaker. What a profound and exciting revelation!Is it too much to suggest that Eve came to Adam on the arm of the Lord Himself in the same way that a bride today walks down the aisle of the church on her fathers arm? What human mind can fathom the depth of love and joy that filled the heart of the great Creator as He united the man and woman in this first marriage ceremony?Surely this account is one among countless indications that the Bible is not a work of merely human authorship. Moses is generally accepted as the author of the creation record. But apart from supernatural inspiration, he would never have dared to open human history with a scene of such amazing intimacy—first between God and man, and then between man and woman." - Author: Derek Prince
