"The dead can survive as part of the lives of those that still live."

PS Baber Quotes

"Living is the opposite of poetry. Poetry is the recollection of living, or, more often than not, the lament of having not lived. Or worse yet, merely the contemplation of living. My advice to you, Ms. Harper, is this: Live. And keep living. And never stop to look back to write about what you have lived and observed and overcome, lest you turn into a pillar of salt. This desert life is already full of such monoliths."

JH Trumble Quotes

"Ill never understand why some people cant just let others live their lives, you know," Danial said. "You dont have to understand. You dont have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time its taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesnt it? How short our time on earth is."

Quotes About Kneeling To Pray

"Through the half-open door in one room of the huts I saw Pastor Bonhoeffer, before taking off his prison garb, kneeling on the floor praying fervently to his God.
