Quotes About Bible Resurrection Of The Body

"For a torture to be effective, the pain has to be spread out; it has to come at regular intervals, with no end in sight. The water falls , drop after drop after drop, like the second hand of a watch, carving up time. The shock of each individual drop is insignificant, but the sensation is impossible to ignore. At first, one might manage to think about other things, but after five hours, after ten hours, it becomes unendurable. The repeated stimulation excites the nerves to a point where they literally explode, and every sensation in the body is absorbed into that one spot on the forehead---indeed, you come to feel that you are nothing but a forehead, into which a fine needle is being forced millimeter by millimeter. You cant sleep or even speak, hypnotized by a suffering that is greater than any mere pain. In general, the victim goes mad before a day has passed." - Author: Yōko Ogawa

Quotes About Cheesy

"Ive had so many hot, cheesy, corny loves of music in my life. I had a very intense Billy Joel period. So once youve really Joeled it up - theres some good periods of Joel; its not all hot cheese. But I cant judge anyone else for their cheese. Ive deep-sea dived in the Gouda." - Author: Jack Black

Quotes About Solitude And Peace

"The man who fears to be alone will never be anything but lonely, no matter how much he may surround himself with people. But the man who learns, in solitude and recollection, to be at peace with his own loneliness, and to prefer its reality to the illusion of merely natural companionship, comes to know the invisible companionship of God. Such a one is alone with God in all places, and he alone truly enjoys the companionship of other men, because he loves them in God in Whom their presence is not tiresome, and because of Whom his own love for them can never know satiety." - Author: Thomas Merton

Quotes About Emocion

"Cuando oración, rituales y vida ascética son solo los medios para la autoindulgencia, son más dañinos que beneficiosos. Esto resulta muy obvio para la gente hoy en día, cuando es comúnmente reconocido que las fijaciones no son lo mismo que las actividades valiosas y laudables. Uno no debería rezar si esa oración es vanidad, los rituales son erróneos cuando proporcionan satisfacciones inferiores, como estímulo emocional, en vez de instrucción; él o ella no deberían ser ascéticos si no hacen más que disfrutar de ello." - Author: Idries Shah

Quotes About Amanti

"La smania di possesso non è che unaltra forma del desiderio di durare e crea il delirio impotente dellamore. Nessun essere, nemmeno il più amato e che meglio ci ricambi, è mai in nostro possesso. Sulla terra crudele dove gli amanti muoiono talvolta separati, nascono sempre divisi, il possesso totale di un essere, la comunione assoluta per tutto il tempo della vita, è unimpossibile esigenza. La volontà di possesso è a tal punto insaziabile che può sopravvivere allo stesso amore. Amare, allora, è isterilire lamato. La vergognosa sofferenza dellamante ormai solitario non sta tanto nel non essere amato quanto nel sapere che laltro può e deve amare ancora. Al limite, ogni uomo divorato dallo sfrenato desiderio di durare e di possedere, augura agli esseri che ha amati la sterilità o la morte. È questa la vera rivolta." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Leading A Family

"A famous cigarette billboard pictures a curly-headed, bronze-faced, muscular macho with a cigarette hanging out the side of his mouth. The sign reads Where a man belongs. That is a lie. Where a man belongs is at the bedside of his children, leading in devotion and prayer. Where a man belongs is leading his family to the house of God. Where a man belongs is up early and alone with God seeking vision and direction for the family." - Author: John Piper

Quotes About Being Outgoing

"Most people think of leaders as being these outgoing, very visible, and charismatic people, which I find to be a very narrow perception. The key challenge for managers today is to get beyond the surface of your colleagues. You might just find that you have introverts embedded within your organization who are natural-born leaders." - Author: Douglas Conant
