Quotes About Guns And Love

"If Id been a cowboy, it mightve ended well.Somewhere on the ramble, Im sure Id have to sellMy guns along the highway. My coins to the table To make a gamblers double, Id double debts to pay.Probly shrink and slink away, It mightntve ended well.What If Id been a sailor? I think it mightve ended well.From August to MayFor a searat of man drifting through eternal blue, aboard the finest Debris.I mightve called the shanties. From daybreak to storms set, lines stay Taught, over rhythm unbroken.But, oh, theres a schism unspoken, a mighty calling of the lee.An absentminded Pirate, unaccustomed to the sea;To the land, a traitor. I think it mightntve ended well. What mightve worked for me? What mightve ended well?Soldier, to bloody sally forth through hell?Teacher of glorious stories to tell?Man of gold, or stores to sell?Lover to a gentle belle? Maybe a camel;A seashell.What mightntve been a life where it mightntve ended well?" - Author: Dylan Thomas McCall

Quotes About Treasures In Life

"Power as I possess is not, as many believe, given in exchange for a soul. To hear the ignorant speak, one would think it is merely a simple bargain, an exchange of vows, perhaps, and the power one seeks simply flows from the fingertips for the asking. But no, it is not so easy as that! The truly great gifts are not gifts at all, but treasures obtained after long and difficult searching, prizes won only through hard-fought victories over relentless, near-invincible adversaries. [...]The ignorant speak of hidden arts, but they are not hidden. Indeed, there is nothing secret about them at all; they are freely open and available to any who would pursue them. Ah, but the price! The price is nothing less than the devotion of an entire life. So perhaps the simple-minded are right, after all, in thinking of the acquisition of power as a pact in which the soul is bartered. There is no other way.- Morgian" - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead

Quotes About How The World Began

"Then suddenly he beheld his sister Éowyn as she lay, and he knew her. He stood a moment as a man who is pierced in the midst of a cry by an arrow through the heart; and then his face went deathly white; and a cold fury rose in him, so that all speech failed him for a while. A fey mood took him. Éowyn, Éowyn! he cried at last: Éowyn, how come you here? What madness or devilry is this? Death, death, death! Death take us all! Then without taking counsel or waiting for the approach of the men of the City, he spurred headlong back to the front of the great host, and blew a horn, and cried aloud for the onset. Over the field rang his clear voice calling: Death! Ride, ride to ruin and the worlds ending! And with that the host began to move. But the Rohirrim sang no more. Death they cried with one voice loud and terrible, and gathering speed like a great tide their battle swept about their fallen king and passed, roaring away southwards." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
