Jennifer Bosworth Quotes

"A piece of advice: if you want to remain in control of a doomsday cult, dont give a date for the end of the world unless youre really, really sure its going to happen. Being wrong tends to undermine your authority."

Dan Wilbur Quotes

"Few people actually read. Instead, everyone likes pretending they read. If we spent as much time reading as we say we do, wed be grossly overweight and depressed."

Alexei Panshin Quotes

"Night is irregular. What is not done in the daytime becomes possible at night: murder and sex and thought. Simple men are driven to early beds by tomorrows daytime demands and by fear of the dark, and never dream of the irregular world outside. And all the while, a viscount and a spaceport baggage boy might be passing the night rolling bok ball in the city park. Thats more than unusual -- that is irregular."

Oscar Isaac Quotes

Russel M Nelson Quotes

"An ideal marriage is a true partnership between two imperfect people, each striving to complement the other, to keep the commandments, and to do the will of the Lord ["Our Sacred Duty to Honor Woman," Ensign, May 1999)."

"The church wasnt an organization in the first century. They werent writing checks or buying property. The church has matured and developed over the years. But for some reason, the last thing to change is the structure of leadership." - Author: Andy Stanley

Quotes About Gaskell

"When you asked me to speak about women and fiction I sat down on the banks of a river and began to wonder what the words meant. They might mean simply a few remarks about Fanny Burney; a few more about Jane Austen; a tribute to the Brontes and a sketch of Haworth Parsonage under snow, some witticisms if possible about Miss Mitford; a respectful allusion to George Eliot; a reference to Mrs Gaskell and one would have done." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Pregnancy And Husband

"Alexia had found pregnancy relatively manageable, up to a point. That point having been some three weeks ago, at which juncture her natural reserves of control gave way to sentimentality. Only yesterday she had ended breakfast sobbing over the fried eggs because they looked at her funny. The pack had spent a good half hour trying to find a way to pacify her. Her husband was so worried he looked to start crying himself." - Author: Gail Carriger

Quotes About Eric Church

"The North American Church is at a critical juncture. The gospel of grace is being confused and compromised by silence, seduction, and outright subversion. The vitality of the faith is being jeopardized. The lying slogans of the fixers who carry religion like a sword of judgment pile up with impunity. Let ragamuffins everywhere gather as a confessing Church to cry out in protest. Revoke the licenses of religious leaders who falsify the idea of God. Sentence them to three years in solitude with the Bible as their only companion." - Author: Brennan Manning

Quotes About Sufi Life

"My interest in Sufism began when I was a college student. At the time, I was a rebellious young woman who liked to wrap several shawls of ‘-isms around her shoulders: I was a leftist, feminist, nihilist, environmentalist, anarcho-pacifist…I wasnt interested in any religion and the difference between ‘religiosity and ‘spirituality was lost to me. Having spent some time of my childhood with a loving grandmother with many superstitions and beliefs, I had a sense the world was not composed of solely material things and there was more to life than I could see. But the truth is, I wasnt interested in understanding the world. I only wanted to change it." - Author: Elif Shafak

Quotes About Western Pleasure

"In the world of animals, pain serves an equivocal role. Parental nips and swipes are common tools in upbringing. And socially, pain is sometimes used to maintain hierarchies of dominance. But this animal use of pain seems somewhat restrained, at least in contrast with the human situation. Here the capacity for pain is often used to systematically exploit and oppress at intensities often far beyond those seen in the behaviour of our nearest primate relatives. At the same time, at least in western culture, pain is rarely used for pleasure. Is it little wonder that all pain is viewed as intrinsically evil? Or that the pain-pleasure of leatherspace has been labelled torture?" - Author: Geoff Mains
