Quotes About Longing For Heaven

"There is so much deep contradiction in my soul. Such deep longing for God - so deep that it is painful - a suffering continual - and yet not wanted by God - repulsed - empty - no faith - no love - no zeal. Souls hold no attraction - Heaven means nothing - to me it looks like an empty place - the thought of it means nothing to me and yet this torturing longing for God. Pray for me please that I keep smiling at Him in spite of everything. For I am only His - so He has every right over me. I am perfectly happy to be nobody even to God. . . .Your devoted child in J.C.M. Teresa" - Author: Brian Kolodiejchuk

Quotes About Love This Valentines

"alentines Day is coming up and many persons will feel bothered by the fact that theyre still single. At one point I was also there and I know how it feels, but my advice to you is no to allow the spirit of this season to spoil your inner peace. Valentines is not so much about love and relationships as it is about money and creating a false sense of worth for those unable to fully indulge themselves.A relationship is no measure of a persons worth, as a matter of fact many professional and driven persons of sound character and strength are single for the very reason that relationships are very difficult to focus on while pursuing goals. In whatever circumstance you are, while you do have life, be thankful because you are free to be as happy as you make your mind up to be." - Author: Calvert Jones

Quotes About Forced Happiness

"Her experience had been of a kind to teach her, rightly or wrongly, that the doubtful honor of a brief transit through a sorry world hardly called for effusiveness, even when the path was suddenly irradiated at some half-way point by daybeams rich as hers. But her strong sense that neither she nor any human being deserved less than was given, did not blind her to the fact that there were others receiving less who had deserved much more. And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain." - Author: Thomas Hardy
