[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.]

Phillip Wollen Quotes

"When animals do something noble we say they are behaving ‘like humans. When humans do something disgusting we say they are behaving ‘like animals. Clumsy use of the English language perpetuates the myth that animals are inferior and disposable beings."

Quotes About Caz

"Cae la noche a toda prisa y el cristal helado produce en tus manos un tintineo leve pero muy agradable. La gran ciudad parece arder en toda su amplitud, en su apabullante telón de torres recubiertas de destellos, zurcidos ahora junto al polen diamantino de un millón de luce…y el sol se ha puesto ya detrás de ellas y la vieja luz rojiza del crepúsculo queda pinta sin calor, sin violencia, sobre el río. Y allí están los botes, los remolques, las barcazas que pasan y la perspectiva alada de los puentes con su gracia exultante. De pronto, ha caído la noche y hay barcos allí, hay barcos, y una ansiedad animal e intolerable dentro de ti que no consigues calmar." - Author: Thomas Wolfe

Quotes About Bible Statues

"Read the Bible as you would Livy or Tacitus. For example, in the book of Joshua we are told the sun stood still for several hours. Were we to read that fact in Livy or Tacitus we should class it with their showers of blood, speaking of their statues, beasts, etc. But it is said that the writer of that book was inspired. Examine, therefore, candidly, what evidence there is of his having been inspired. The pretension is entitled to your inquiry, because millions believe it. On the other hand, you are astronomer enough to know how contrary it is to the law of nature (Works, Vol. ii., p. 217)." - Author: Livy

"Alangkah seringnya Mentergesai kenikmatan tanpa ikatan Membuat detik-detik di depan terasa hambar Belajar dari ahli puasa Ada dua kebahagiaan baginya Saat berbuka Dan saat Allah menyapa lembut memberikan pahala Inilah puasa panjang syahwatku Kekuatan ada pada menahan Dan rasa nikmat itu terasa, di waktu buka yang penuh kejutan Coba saja Kalau Allah yang menghalalkan Setitis cicipan surga Kan menjadi shadaqah berpahala Buku ini dipersembahkan untuk mereka yang lagi jatuh hati atau sedang pacaran bersama doi yang dipenuhi hasrat nikah dini tapi belum bernyali yang sedang menjalani proses penuh liku dan yang ingin melanggengkan masa-masa indah pernikahannya..." - Author: Salim Akhukum Fillah

Quotes About Impartation

"Dont pray that God would teach you how to love like He loves; pray that He would fill you with Himself and that He would love in and through you. Dont pray that He would teach you to have joy; pray that the living God full of joy would enter into you. Dont pray that He would teach you how to be peaceful; ask for the God of peace, the Prince of peace to infill you. Because if you try to imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overtake you, suddenly it all works because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God." - Author: Eric Ludy

Quotes About Squashed

"Compassion is a wonderful thing. Its what one feels when one looks at a squashed caterpillar. An elevating experience. One can let oneself go and spread--you know, like taking a girdle off. You dont have to hold your stomach, your heart or your spirit up--when you feel compassion. All you have to do is look down. Its much easier. When you look up, you get a pain in the neck. Compassion is the greatest virtue. It justifies suffering. Theres got to be suffering in the world, else how would we be virtuous and feel compassion?... Oh, it has an antithesis--but such a hard, demanding one... Admiration, Mrs. Jones, admiration. But that takes more than a girdle... So I say that anyone for whom we cant feel sorry is a vicious person. Like Howard Roark." - Author: Ayn Rand
