Dino Buzzati Quotes

"But why was the room suddenly becoming so dark? It was the middle of the afternoon.

Quotes About Praying For Someone

"You might tell me that you have been engaging in some deep questioning and theological rethinking.1 You can no longer live with the faith you inherited from your parents or constructed earlier in your life. As you sort through your dogma and doctrine, youve found yourself praying less, less thrilled about worship, scripture, or church attendance. Youve been so focused on sorting and purging your theological theories that youve lost track of the spiritual practices that sustain an actual relationship with God. You may even wonder if such a thing is possible for someone like you." - Author: Brian D. McLaren

Quotes About Constantine The Great

"if they hadnt both been pretending, but had had what is called a heart-to-heart talk, that is, simply told each other just what they were thinking and feeling, then they would just have looked into each others eyes, and Constantine would only have said: ‘Youre dying, dying, dying! – while Nicholas would simply have replied: ‘I know Im dying, but Im afraid, afraid, afraid! Thats all they would have said if theyd been talking straight from the heart. But it was impossible to live that way, so Levin tried to do what hed been trying to do all his life without being able to, what a great many people could do so well, as he observed, and without which life was impossible: he tried to say something different from what he thought, and he always felt it came out false, that his brother caught him out and was irritated by it." - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Painters Artists

"What genuine painters do is to reveal the underlying psychological and spiritual conditions of their relationship to their world; thus in the works of a great painter we have a reflection of the emotional and spiritual condition of human beings in that period of history. If you wish to understand the psychological and spiritual temper of any historical period, you can do no better than to look long and searchingly at its art. For in the art the underlying spiritual meaning of the period is expressed directly in symbols. This is not because artists are didactic or set out to teach or to make propaganda; to the extend that they do, their power of expression is broken; their direct relations to the inarticulate, or, if you will, unconscious levels of the culture is destroyed. They have the power to reveal the underlying meaning of any period precisely because the essence of art is the powerful and alive encounter between the artist and his or her world." (pg 52)" - Author: Rollo May

Quotes About Same Old Story

"Ciro had made a bet in proposing to her, and on that same day, Enza made a bet of her own. She was putting all her money, effort and future into a partnership that she believed could not fail. She was going to pour all of herself into her marriage: love would sustain them, and trust would see them through. That was her belief, and thats how she was raised. When she spun the gold ring on her finger, it was as though it was made for her, but it meant even more that her husband had worn it since he was a boy. She was a part of his history now." - Author: Adriana Trigiani
