Quotes About Cooking From The Heart

"You cant, if you cant feel it, if it neverRises from the soul, and swaysThe heart of every single hearer,With deepest power, in simple ways.Youll sit forever, gluing things together,Cooking up a stew from others scraps,Blowing on a miserable fire,Made from your heap of dying ash.Let apes and children praise your art,If their admirations to your taste,But youll never speak from heart to heart,Unless it rises up from your hearts space." - Author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Quotes About Say What You Feel

"I know positively - yes Rieux I can say I know the world inside out as no one on earth is free from it. And I know too that we must keep endless watch on ourselves lest in careless moment we breathe in somebodys face and fasten the infection on him. Whats natural is the microbe. All the rest- health integrity purity if you like - is a product of the human will of vigilance that must never falter. The good man the man who infects hardly anyone is the man who has the fewest lapses of attention. And it needs tremendous will-power a never ending tension of the mind to avoid such lapses. Yes Rieux its a wearying business being plague-stricken. But its still more wearying to refuse to be it. Thats why everybody in the world today looks so tired everyone is more or less sick of plague. But that is also why some of us who want to get the plague out of their systems feel such desperate weariness a weariness from which nothing remains to set us free except death." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Keeping Things The Same

"Strolling, keeping step, his stout polished well-made boots setting themselves down firmly beside her thin-soled black suede, they put off as long as they could the end of their moment together, and kept up as well as they could their small talk that flew back and forth over little grooves worn in the thin upper suface of the brain, things you could say and hear clink reassuringly at once without disturbing the radiance which played and darted about the simple and lovely miracle of being two persons named Adam and Miranda, twenty-four years old each, alive and on earth at the same moment: Are you in the mood for dancing, Miranda? and Im always in the mood for dancing, Adam! but there were things in the way, the day that ended with dancing was a long way to go." - Author: Katherine Anne Porter

Quotes About 140

"When I left England, my hope of Indias conversion was very strong; but amongst so many obstacles, it would die, unless upheld by God. Well, I have God, and His Word is true. Though the superstitions of the heathen were a thousand times stronger than they are, and the example of the Europeans a thousand times worse; though I were deserted by all and persecuted by all, yet my faith, fixed on the sure Word, would rise above all obstructions and overcome every trial. Gods cause will triumph. (William Carey, quoted in Iain Murray, The Puritan Hope, Banner of Truth 1971, p 140.)" - Author: William Carey
