Cornelius Van Til Quotes

"So, as we have our tea, I propose not only to operate on your heart so as to change your will, but also on your eyes so as to change your outlook. But wait a minute. No, I do not propose to operate at all. I myself cannot do anything of the sort. I am just mildly suggesting that you are perhaps dead, and perhaps blind, leaving you to think the matter over for yourself. If an operation is to be performed it must be performed by God Himself."

Quotes About Mulder

"Tell me, have you done much circus work in your life? [asked Mulder].Nutt drew himself up to his full height. And what makes you think Ive ever even gone to a circus, let alone been a slave in one? he demanded...Finally Mulder managed to say, I didnt mean any offense.Offended? Why should I be offended? Nutt demanded. Its human nature to make quick judgements of people based only on their looks. Why, I have done the same thing to you.Have you? said Mulder. And what have you concluded?I have taken in your all-American face, your unsmiling expression, your boring necktie. I have decided you work for the government, Nutt said. You are- an FBI agent.Am I really? Mulder said.I hope you get my point, Nutt said. I want to show how stupid it would be to look at you as a type, rather than as an individual.But I am an FBI agent, Mulder said, showing Nutt his badge.There was a loud silence.Then Nutt said, Sign the book please." - Author: Les Martin

A man in a black suit with a somber know-it-all face addressed them, "Oh, ShuyaNanahara and Noriko Nakagawa? You two, thats right, youre a little early. But you did just pass byyour own graves right here. We carved in the number you two share, No. 15. Dont worry, wereoffering a special bonus." - Author: Koushun Takami

Quotes About Recycled

"Atoms, in short, are very abundant. They are also fantastically durable. Because they are so long lived, atoms really get around. Every atom you possess has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to becoming you. We are each so atomically numerous and so vigorously recycled at death that a significant number of our atoms-- up to a billion for each of us, it has been suggested-- probably once belonged to Shakespeare." - Author: Bill Bryson

Quotes About Ear Gauges

"Reading, for me, is like this: consumptive, pleasing, calming, as much as edifying. Its how I feel after a good dinner. Thats why I do it so often: It feels wonderful. The book is mind and I insert myself into it, cover it entire, ear my way through every last slash and dot. Thats something you can do with a book, unlike television or movies or the Internet. You can eat it, or mark it, like a dog does on a hydrant." - Author: Tara Bray Smith

Its about having the POWER to have a positive attitude and show kindness even when youre dealing with your own adversity. THATS what this LIFE is all about!" - Author: Comic Strip Mama

Quotes About Brother And Sister In Law

"Marrying cousins was astoundingly common into the nineteenth century, and nowhere is this better illustrated than with the Darwins and their cousins the Wedgwoods (of pottery fame). Charles married his first cousin Emma Wedgwood, daughter of his beloved Uncle Josiah. Darwins sister Caroline, meanwhile, married Josiah Wedgwood III, Emmas brother and the Darwin siblings joint first cousin. Another of Emmas brothers, Henry, married not a Darwin but a first cousin from another branch of his own Wedgwood family, adding another strand to the familys wondrously convoluted genetics. Finally, Charles Langton, who was not related to either family, first married Charlotte Wedgwood, another daughter of Josiah and cousin of Charles, and then upon Charlottes death married Darwins sister Emily, thus becoming, it seems, his sister-in-laws sister-in-laws husband and raising the possibility that any children of the union would be their own first cousins." - Author: Bill Bryson

Quotes About Breaking Habits

"The disruption of the anticipated American future that was simply to have unrolled out of the solid American past, out of each generations getting smartersmarter for knowing the inadequacies and limitations of the generations beforeout of each new generations breaking away from the parochialism a little further, out of the desire to go the limit in America with your rights, forming yourself as an ideal person who gets rid of the traditional Jewish habits and attitudes, who frees himself of the pre-America insecurities and the old, constraining obsessions so as to live unapologetically as an equal among equals." - Author: Philip Roth

Quotes About Crimson Sky

"And somewhere in that crimson-colored never-never land where i pirouetted madly, in a wild and crazy effort to exhaust myself into insensibility, i saw that man, shadowy and distant, half-hidden behind towering white columns that rose clear up to a purple sky. In a passionate pas de deux he danced with me, forever apart, no matter how hard i sought to draw nearer and leap into his arms, where i could feel them protective about me, supporting me ... and with him id find, at last, a safe place to live and love." - Author: V.C. Andrews

Quotes About The Vastness Of Nature

"Persons like you say, ‘Im an individual, therefore I oppose any power over me. That right there does not follow. How about ‘Im an individual, therefore I notice and understand my place in the grand scheme of things? Ive heard of persons who dont feel small in the vastness of Nature or intimidated by its challenges, and that strikes me as a lack of perspective. If all you can see is yourself, youre not seeing very far. How about, ‘Im an individual, therefore I notice and understand that my success depends on others success, because were all interconnected? That does not negate my individuality or threaten my freedom. We support each other on a team. Your problem is you dont know were all on the same team, because youre too busy holding the ball, saying, ‘Mine!, and not playing the game with good sportsmanship. Yeah, good sportsmanship. Ever heard of that?" - Author: Robert Peate
