[Mrs. Wingare Regarded Him Through Slitted Blue Eyes. "Have You Any Idea, Rathbourne, How Utterly Detestable You Become When You Adopt That Tone Of Patient Superiority?""The Trouble Is, You Are Tired, Hungry, Anxious, And Afflicted With An Aching Hand," He Said. "The Trouble Is, You Had Confidently Expected A Happy Outcome Only To Have Your Hopes Dashed. Consequently, You Are Too Low-spirited At Present To Appreciate That I Am Perfect And Therefore Cannot Be Detestable."She Gazed At Him For A Moment, Up And Down, Then Up Again. Then, "Did Your Wife Ever Throw Things At You?" She Said.]

Ann Lamott Quotes

"We write to expose the unexposed. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writers job is to see whats behind it, to see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just into any words but if we can, into rhythm and blues."

Charles Porterfield Krauth Quotes

"The Pelagianizing Romanist says, Lust, or concupiscence, brings forth sin, therefore it cannot be sin, because the mother cannot be the child. We reply, Concupiscence brings forth sin, therefore it must be sin, because child and mother must have the same nature. The grand sophism of Pelagianism is the assumption that sin is confined to acts, that guilty acts can be the product of innocent condition, that the effect can be sinful, yet the cause free from sin--that the unclean can be brought forth from the clean."

Quotes About Famous Preachers

"Lincoln was raised in the thick of Old School Calvinism. In Kentucky and Indiana, his parents belonged to a fire-breathing sect called Separate Baptism, in which congregants heard—in the tradition of Jonathan Edwards famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"—that they were bound for eternal hellfire, and nothing they could do or say or think would change their fate. Preachers did allow that a chosen few were ordained for grace and would be saved, but these fortunate ones had been selected by God before time began. As one Baptist preacher in Lincolns Kentucky explained it, "Long before the morning stars sang together . . . the Almighty looked down upon the ages yet unborn, as it were, in review before him, and selected one here and another there to enjoy eternal life and left the rest to the blackness of darkness forever." Such Baptist ministers were so intense that it has been said that they "out-Calvined Calvin." - Author: Joshua Wolf Shenk

Quotes About Pritchard

"Evans-Pritchards confession reveals the way the power advantage of the subject whose definition of a situation prevails in the larger social context (in this case the majority of the Azande) shapes the environment and behavioral constraints that impact the subject who, although does not define the situation the same way, has to behave according to the former subjects definition in order to obtain the needed resources (in this case Evans-Pritchard, who is interested in gaining knowledge of the social organization of the Azande). For Evans-Pritchard, while living among the Azande, the actual world is as if there were magical forces around, true oracles and evil witches, as his whole daily life is structured around those nonexistent entities." - Author: István Aranyosi
