Ruth Bell Graham Quotes

"Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid(as were inclined to do),I do not need a handsome manbut let him be like You;I do not need one big and strongnor yet so very tall,nor need he be some genius,or wealthy, Lord, at all;but let his head be high, dear God,and let his eye be clear,his shoulders straight, whateer his state,whateer his earthly sphere;and let his face have character,a ruggedness if soul,and let his whole life show, dear God,a singleness of goal;then when he comes(as he will come)with quiet eyes aglow,Ill understand that hes the manI prayed for long ago."

Quotes About Desires Of The Heart

"The fatal combination of indulgence without feeling disgusts me. Strange to be both greedy and dead. For myself, I prefer to hold my desires just out of reach of appetite, to keep myself honed and sharp. I want the keen edge of longing. it is so easy to be a brute and yet it has become rather fashionable. Is that the consequence of leaving your body to science? Of assuming that another pill, another drug, another car, another pocket-sized home-movie station, a DNA transfer, or the complete freedom of choice that five hundred TV channels must bring, will make everything all right? Will soothe the nagging pain in the heart that the latest laser scan refuses to diagnose? The doctors surgery is full of men and women who do not know why they are unhappy. "Take this", says the Doctor, "youll soon feel better." They do not feel better, because, little by little, they cease to feel at all." - Author: Jeanette Winterson

There was a place inside me carved out for him; I didnt want it to be there, but it was. Once, at the hardware store, Brooks had shown me how to use a drill. Id made a tiny hole that went deep. The place for my father was like that." - Author: Elizabeth Berg

Quotes About Costly

"Yet, with all that, no one dared to interfere. Burke had exhausted all his eloquence in trying to induce the British Government to fight the revolutionary government of France, but Mr. Pitt, with characteristic prudence, did not feel that this country was fit yet to embark on another arduous and costly war. It was for Austria to take the initiative; Austria, whose fairest daughter was even now a dethroned queen, imprisoned and insulted by a howling mob; surely twas not—so argued Mr. Fox—for the whole of England to take up arms, because one set of Frenchmen chose to murder another." - Author: Emmuska Orczy
