"Nothing disappoints an atheist more than meeting God."

Kat Lowe Quotes

"Write about the experiences that made you feel human. And whatever happens, please do continue to live and write. The people of your own time may not perceive your words, but be cheered by the fact that history has shown that, many times, mankind has learned to love an author, even if their own time thought nothing of them."

"May my soul bloom in love for all existence."

Eduardo Mendicutti Quotes

"Pero, en estos tiempos, es como si el mundo desapareciera cada día. "De vez en cuando" es un tiempo que no existe. Es inútil apostar por él. Durante más de dos años yo aposté, con cuerpo de perdida y dignidad de caballero, por un tiempo inexistente. No me quejo. No me arrepiento. Puse algo de dinero. Un gramo de locura. Un montón de afecto. Quizás amor.- Nazdrave!Afortunadamente, el amor ya no es lo que era."

Sarah Blake Quotes

"It is the story I hoped to tell. It is the story that lies around the edges of the photograph, or at the end of the newspaper account. Its about the lies we tell others to protect them, and about the lies we tell ourselves in order not to acknowledge what we cant bear: that we are alive, for instance, and eating lunch, while bombs are falling, and refugees are crammed into camps, and the news come toward us every hour of the day. And what, in the end, do we do?"

Quotes About American Sign Language

Quotes About Waiting The Right Guy

"We didnt try to force Gods hand or do the "I just heard a sermon about David and Goliath so I need to quit my job right this second" leap of faith thats so popular in Christian circles. We took our time with the decision, like another guy in the Bible, named Jesus. He spent thirty years in obscurity before he started his adventure. Often, were not willing to spend thirty minutes in preparation, never mind thirty years, especially when we come home from a conference and find our day jobs waiting for us on Monday morning. Im not sure why Christians sometimes think the maturation of our own missions will be radically shorter than that of Jesus. But it happens and in the past Ive certainly wanted to take wild, unplanned, possibly-not-inspired-by-God leaps of faith." - Author: Jon Acuff

Quotes About Bruised

"I noticed again the bruised oaks nearby, and their gallant attempts to flourish as if their scars didnt exist.

She looked at me, her eyes measuring. "Why do some people continue to search for the missing, and others give up? I dont know. But I think sometimes a person has to be forced underwater to see if theyre going to drown or swim." - Author: Karen White

Quotes About Truman Doctrine

"Founded by President Truman at 12:01 A.M. on November 4, 1952, the NSA had been the most clandestine intelligence agency in the world for almost fifty years. The NSAs seven-page inception doctrine laid out a very concise agenda: to protect U.S. government communications and to intercept the communications of foreign powers."The roof of the NSAs main operations building was littered with over five hundred antennas, including two large radomes that looked like enormous golf balls. The building itself was mammoth--over two million square feet, twice the size of CIA headquarters. Inside were eight million feet of telephone wire and eighty thousand square feet of permanently sealed windows." - Author: Dan Brown

Quotes About Cretins

"If there is a true measure of a persons soul, if there is a single gauge of real divinity, of how beautifully a fellow human honors this life, has genuine spiritual fire and is full of honest love and compassion, it has to be right there, in the eyes.The Dalai Lamas eyes sparkle and dance with laughter and unbridled love. The Popes eyes are dark and glazed, bleak as obsidian marbles. Pat Robertsons eyes are rheumy and hollow, like tiny potholes of old wax. Goldman Sachs cretins, well, they dont use their own eyes at all; they just steal someone elses." - Author: Mark Morford

Quotes About Farm Workers
