Quotes About Grief Of A Child

"At a period when Literature was wont to attribute the grief of living exclusively to the mischances of disappointed love or the jealousy of adulterous deceptions, he had said not a word of these childish maladies, but had sounded those more incurable, more poignant and more profound: wounds that are inflicted by satiety, disillusion and contempt in ruined souls tortured by the present, disgusted with the past, terrified and desperate of the future." - Author: Joris Karl Huysmans

Quotes About Lds Relief Society

"Now, I ask this question of all of us and lay this burden upon us: What circumstances are at work right now in our wards, silently separating one sister here and another sister there from the sisterhood of the Relief Society, marginalizing them, making them invisible? And what can we do about it? . . . For example, LDS women are participating in the labor force in ever-increasing numbers. These women need Relief Society. They need the strength of sisterhood. They need to be understood. They need support with their families. They dont need to be told that theyre selfish or unrighteous because theyre working. They need to be told they are loved." - Author: Chieko N. Okazaki

Quotes About Querencia

"...se ahonda en la anomalía, en lo repugnante y mezquino como si nuestra norma fuese la del respeto y la generosidad y la rectitud y hubiese que analizar microscópicamente cuanto se sale de ella: como si la mala fe y la tradición, la malquerencia y la voluntad de daño no formaran parte de esa norma y fueran cosas excepcionales, y merecieran por ello todos nuestros desvelos y nuestra máxima atención. Y no es así." - Author: Javier Marías

Quotes About Complex World

"Once someone tries a real extra virgin -- an adult or a child, anybody with taste buds -- theyll never go back to the fake kind. Its distinctive, complex, the freshest thing youve ever eaten. It makes you realize how rotten the other stuff is, literally rotten. But there has to be a first time. Somehow we have to get those first drops of real extra virgin oil into their mouths, to break them free from the habituation to bad oil, and from the brainwashing of advertising. There has to be some good oil left in the world for people to taste." - Author: Tom Mueller

The light from the baron skimmed by D as the Hunter bent back far, imbedding itself in the floor, while Ds blade pinned the Noblemans chest to the wall." - Author: Hideyuki Kikuchi

Quotes About Its Worth The Wait

"The sacred rowan is a woman born long, long ago, a woman whose refusal to see love cost first her lovers life, then the lives of her family, her clan, her people.But not her own life. Not quite.In pity and punishment she was turned into an undying tree, a rowan that weeps only in the presence of transcendent love; and the tears of the rowan are blossoms that confer extraordinary grace upon those who can see them.When enough tears are wept, the rowan will be free. She waits inside a sacred ring that can be neither weighed or measured nor touched. She waits for love that is worth her tears.The rowan is waiting still." - Author: Elizabeth Lowell

Quotes About Unsure Future

"I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him as a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny. I came amid the thunderous cries of a culture that has 330 million deities. I remain with Him knowing that truth cannot be all-inclusive." - Author: Ravi Zacharias
