"Think how much they must have loved each other to die for it, to know there was no one else in the world theyd ever love. Thats a whole lotta love."

Emma Bull Quotes

"It occurs to me to wonder: do I believe in any god, or even positively not believe, as James does? I believe in systems and methods. I believe in the beauties of philosophy and poetry. I believe that the work we do and leave behind us is our afterlife; and I believe that history lies, but sometimes so well that I cant bring myself to resent it. I believe that truth is beauty, but not, Im afraid, the reverse. It doesnt seem sufficient to sustain one in lifes rigorous moments. Perhaps I shall embrace Islam. Its standards for poetry seem very high."

Quotes About The Kalahari

"...in all the Kalahari Desert, only six true hunters remained. The renegades agreed to let Louis hang around, an offer he took to the extreme; once installed, Louis acted like an unemployed in-law, basically squatting with the Bushmen for the next four years...He learned to keep his campfire burning and tent zipped even on the most sweltering nights, since packs of hyenas were known to drag people from open shelters and tear out their throats. He leaned that if you stumble upon an angry lioness and her cubs, you stand tall and make her back down, but in the same situation with a rhino, you run like hell. (p. 234) Know why people run marathons? he said... Because running is rooted in our collective imagination, and our imagination is rooted in running. Language, art, science; space shuttles... intravascular surgery, they all had their roots in our ability to run. Running was the superpower that made us human- which means its a superpower all humans possess. (p. 239)" - Author: Christopher McDougall

Quotes About Love Marriage In Bible

"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

Quotes About Knowing Yourself

"And (Tirian) called out "Aslan! Aslan! Aslan! Come and help us now."But the darkness and the cold and the quietness went on just the same."Let me be killed," cried the King. "I ask nothing for myself. But come and save all Narnia."And still there was no change in the night or the wood, but there began to be a kind of change inside Tirian. Without knowing why, he began to feel a faint hope. And he felt somehow stronger. "Oh Aslan, Aslan," he whispered. "If you will not come yourself, at least send me the helpers from beyond the world. Or let me call them. Let my voice carry beyond the world." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Frightening

"I love him. (Artemis)How can you say that? You dont even understand what love means. Love isnt being ashamed to be seen with the one you care about. It isnt about punishment or hurt. Love is what gives you the strength you need to face anything no matter how brutal or frightening. Its what allowed Ash to be beaten rather than tell his father about you. Its what allowed him to be gutted on the floor at your feet rather than publicly shame you. And you spat on him for that love and tore him apart. For a goddess, youre pathetic. (Tory)" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
