Raymond D Reifinger III Quotes

"The Lord is much like the air around us. The air is all around us, it is everywhere. Even though we cant see it, it is there, we know it is there, because we are breathing. The Lord is everywhere too, you cant see Him, but He is there, we know He is there, because we are breathing. (Page 183)"

Vanessa Kelly Quotes

"Linnets thudding heart raced blood through her veins, sending a flush of embarrassing heat to her face. She had been avoiding him, but she could never tell him why. It took all her discipline not to quail under Sir Anthonys penetrating gaze. Blast the man. Shed lost count of the times hed made her feel like a blushing maiden. Strictly speaking, she was still a maiden, but shed given up blushing years ago—along with simpering, flirting, and so many other talents deemed useful to unmarried women. Except, of course, in Sir Anthonys august presence."

Quotes About Athanasius

"Living in filth was regarded by great numbers of holy men, who set an example to the Church and to society, as an evidence of sanctity. St. Jerome and the Breviary of the Roman Church dwell with unction on the fact that St. Hilarion lived his whole life long in utter physical uncleanliness; St. Athanasius glorifies St. Anthony because he had never washed his feet; St. Abrahams most striking evidence of holiness was that for fifty years he washed neither his hands nor his feet; St. Sylvia never washed any part of her body save her fingers; St. Euphraxia belonged to a convent in which the nuns religiously abstained from bathing. St. Mary of Egypt was emninent for filthiness; St. Simon Stylites was in this respect unspeakable - the least that can be said is, that he lived in ordure and stench intolerable to his visitors." - Author: Andrew Dickson White

Quotes About Aidh

"Tabini was at least canny enough in the differences between atevi and human to know that, gut level, he might think he understood - but chances were very good that he wouldnt, couldnt, and never would, unaided by the paidhi, come up with the right forecast of human behavior because he didnt come with the right hardwiring. Average people didnt analyze what they thought: they thought they thought, and half of it was gut reaction." - Author: C.J. Cherryh

Quotes About Dealing With Anxiety

"Whether were overcoming adversity, surviving trauma, or dealing with stress and anxiety, having a sense of purpose, meaning, and perspective in our lives allows us to develop understanding and move forward. Without purpose, meaning, and perspective, it is easy to lose hope, numb our emotions, or become overwhelmed by our circumstances. We feel reduced, less capable, and lost in the face of struggle. The heart of spirituality is connection. When we believe in that inextricable connection, we dont feel alone." - Author: Brené Brown

Quotes About Corn On The Cob

"All games have morals; and the game of Snakes and Ladders captures, as no other activity can hope to do, the eternal truth that for every ladder you climb, a snake is waiting just around the corner; and for every snake, a ladder will compensate. But its more than that; no mere carrot-and-stick affair; because implicit in the game is the unchanging twoness of things, the duality of up against down, good against evil; the solid rationality of ladders balances the occult sinuosities of the serpent; in the opposition of staircase and cobra we can see, metaphorically, all conceivable oppositions, Alpha against Omega, father against mother; here is the war of Mary and Musa, and the polarities of knees and nose ... but I found, very early in my life, that the game lacked one crucial dimension, that of ambiguity - because, as events are about to show, it is also possible to slither down a ladder and climb to triumph on the venom of a snake ..." - Author: Salman Rushdie

Quotes About Pitching Baseball

"My father kept me busy from dawn to dusk when I was a kid. When I wasnt pitching hay, hauling corn or running a tractor, I was heaving a baseball into his mitt behind the barn... If all the parents in the country followed his rule, juvenile delinquency would be cut in half in a years time." - Author: Bob Feller

Quotes About Turning To God In Times Of Trouble

"Some communities dont permit open, honest inquiry about the things that matter most. Lots of people have voiced a concern, expressed a doubt, or raised a question, only to be told by their family, church, friends, or tribe: "We dont discuss those things here."I believe the discussion itself is divine. Abraham does his best to bargain with God, most of the book of Job consists of arguments by Job and his friends about the deepest questions of human suffering, God is practically on trial in the book of Lamentations, and Jesus responds to almost every question hes asked with...a question." - Author: Rob Bell

Quotes About Doubters

"There are some doubters even in the western villages. One woman told me last Christmas that she did not believe either in hell or in ghosts. Hell she thought was merely an invention got up by the priest to keep people good; and ghosts would not be permitted, she held, to go trapsin about the earth at their own free will; but there are faeries, she added, and little leprechauns, and water-horses, and fallen angels. I have met also a man with a mohawk Indian tattooed upon his arm, who held exactly similar beliefs and unbeliefs. No matter what one doubts one never doubts the faeries, for, as the man with the mohawk Indian on his arm said to me, they stand to reason. Even the official mind does not escape this faith.
