[If We Are Co-eternal With God, Then It Is Not God's Creation Of The Human Out Of Nothing That Defines Our Essential Relationship To Him. It Is His Freely Made Choice To Inaugurate And Sustain Loving Relationships, And Our Choice To Reciprocate, That Are At The Core Of Our Relationship To The Divine.]

Quotes About Cone

"We choose--or choose not--to be alone when we decide whom we will accept as our fellows, and whom we will reject. Thus an eremite in a mountain is in company, because the birds and coneys, the initiates whose words live in his forest books, and the winds--the messengers of the Increate--are his companions. Another man, living in the midst of millions, may be alone, because there are none but enemies and victims around him." - Author: Gene Wolfe

Quotes About Compromising Yourself

"USURY: Everybodys looking for the job in which you never have to pay anyone their pound of flesh. Self-employed nirvana. A lot of artists like to think of themselves as uncompromising; a lot of management consultants wont tell you what they do until theyve sunk five pints. I dont think anybody should give themselves air just because they dont have to hand over a pound of flesh every day at 5pm, and I dont think anyone should beat themselves with broken glass because they do. If youre an artist, well, good for you. Thank your lucky stars every evening and dance in the garden with the fairies. But dont fool yourself that you occupy some kind of higher moral ground. You have to work for that. Writing a few lines, painting a pretty picture - that just wont do it." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Sailors And Love

"I am a Magyr. I could crush your skull with my hands and drink this rat town under the table afterwards. And if I wanted to kill myself a passel of sailors, Id bloody well do it with cannon, saber, and a fist in the teeth, not by batting my damn eyelashes. Youd be wise to remember it, Maggie, my love, and if we see a mermaid on our jaunt across the high seas, the best thing for all of us would be to let Sheapshank here put an arrow through her giggling head." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente

Quotes About Endeavour

"Justine, you may remember, was a great favourite of yours; and I recollect you once remarked that if you were in an ill humour, one glance from Justine could dissipate it, for the same reason that Ariosto gives concerning the beauty of Angelica —she looked so frank-hearted and happy. My aunt conceived a great attachment for her, by which she was induced to give her an education superior to that which she had at first intended. This benefit was fully repaid; Justine was the most grateful little creature in the world: I do not mean that she made any professions I never heard one pass her lips, but you could see by her eyes that she almost adored her protectress. Although her disposition was gay and in many respects inconsiderate, yet she paid the greatest attention to every gesture of my aunt. She thought her the model of all excellence and endeavoured to imitate her phraseology and manners, so that even now she often reminds me of her." - Author: Mary Shelley

Quotes About Etched

"I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence." - Author: Eugene V. Debs

Quotes About Personality

"If one has given oneself utterly, watching the beloved sleep can be a vile experience. Perhaps some of you have known that paralysis, staring down at features closed to your enquiry, locked away from you where you can never, ever go, into the others mind. As I say, for us who have given ourselves, that is a horror. One knows, in those moments, that one does not exist, except in relation to that face, that personality. Therefore, when that face is closed down, that personality is lost in its own unknowable world, one feels completely without purpose. A planet without a sun, revolving in darkness." - Author: Clive Barker

Quotes About Monasteries
