[Know Ye Not That There Is Here In This World A Secret Confraternity, Which One Might Call The Company Of Melancholiacs? That People There Are Who By Natural Constitution Have Been Given A Different Nature And Disposition Than The Others; That Have A Larger Heart And A Swifter Blood, That Wish And Demand More, Have Stronger Desires And A Yearning Which Is Wilder And More Ardent Than That Of The Common Herd. They Are Fleet As Children Over Whose Birth Good Fairies Have Presided; Their Eyes Are Opened Wider; Their Senses Are More Subtile In All Their Perceptions. The Gladness And Joy Of Life, They Drink With The Roots Of Their Heart, The While The Others Merely Grasp Them With Coarse Hands.]

Maureen Muldoon Quotes

"We hold these stories and mad idea and events in our head and they run around and around telling us we are different, separate, broken. Then one day the mad idea escapes the asylum. Most times its unplanned. It just tumbles out on the lap of the man sitting next to us on the bus, or it slips sideways into a conversation on line at the Trader Joes or it falls out at the kitchen table when your neighbor comes to pick up her cat. And there is a terrifying moment when it first hits the light of day, where we think, "holy mother of God! What have I done? How could I have been to casual with my crazy ways?"But the man on the bus just smiles and nods his head, and the casher takes a moment to look us in the eye and the neighbor sits for a cup of tea and together we move into some new agreements that we are all in fact crazy and its so much nicer to be out of the closet with it all."

Matt Paradise Quotes

"Pragmatically speaking, I like the fact that the masses vote, abuse drugs, believe in Jesus, follow sports, and worship a flag. They are tools of social engineering that keep the many-too-many sedate, pacified, and out of many peoples hair (chiefly, my own)."

William Burton Pope Quotes

"In the secret recesses of mans nature the grace is given disposing and enabling him to yield. Though the will must at last act from its own resources and deliberate impulse, it is influenced through the feeling and the understanding in such a manner as to give it strength. It is utterly hopeless to penetrate this mystery: it is the secret between Gods Spirit and mans agency. There is a Divine operation which works the desire and acts in such a manner as not to interfere with the natural freedom of the will. The man determines himself, through Divine grace, to salvation: never so free as when swayed by grace."

Quotes About Yearning For The Past

"Although I admired scholarship so much in Cleric, I was not deceived about myself; I knew that I should never be a scholar. I could never lose myself for long among impersonal things.

If I were to hate gay men, or to condemn them just because theyre gay, I would be a hypocrite. I simply cannot turn my back on arms that held me in my darkest hours." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
