Al Faituri Quotes

"Über des Propheten Gebein ist jedes Staubkorn ein Pfeiler von Licht,Aufrecht von der Kuppel des GrabesBis hin zu der Kuppel des Himmels ...Und jene Ehrfurcht, diewie Deine Macht die Stirnen sich neigen läßtzeichnet im Horizont einen höheren Horizontvon Händen und Lippender wogt "Im Namen Gottes", Dein ist das Lob Dein ist der Dank Dein ist der Ruhm Dein ist das Reich Der Du die Wohltat gibst, o Du der alles besitzt! Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat Hier sind wir zu Deinem Dienst, Du der keine Gefährten hat.Keine Glut mehr in unseren Knochen, noch Asche,Kein Schnee, keine Schwärze;Nicht Unglauben mehr, und Anbetung nicht.Erniedrigung ward Gewohnheit, und Schwäche ohne Licht ...O Herr,Du lehrtest uns Liebe,Lehr uns den Willen, der Mauern bricht!"

Alan Sitomer Quotes

"Q and Beanpole and I giggled at the way our math teacher, Mr. Sung-Li, wore four pencils in his shirt pocket in case he was suddenly attacked by a multiplication problem or something."

David Murray Quotes

"redemption and relationship come before rules to help express thankfulness. Anglican pastor and Old Testament scholar Christopher Wright put it like this: The law was given to people whom God had already redeemed. . . . Grace comes before the law. There are eighteen chapters of salvation before we get to Sinai and the Ten Commandments. . . . I stress this because the idea that . . . in the OT salvation was by obeying the law, whereas in the NT it is by grace, is a terrible distortion of Scripture.10"

Deborah L Halliday Quotes

"Their roar is around me. I am on the brink Of the great waters—and their anthem voiceGoes up amid the rainbow and the mist.Their chorus shakes the ground. I feel the rocksOer which my feet hang idly—as they hungOer babbling brooks in boyhood—quiveringUnder the burst of music. Awful voice! And strong, triumphant waters! Do I standIndeed amid your shoutings! Is it mineTo shout on this gray summit, where the bird,The cloudy, monarch bird shrieks from his crag,Oer which hes wheeled for centuries? I lift upMy cry in echo; but no sound is there,And my shout seems but whisper. Extract from the poem "Niagara" by Grenville Mellen, 1839."

Quotes About Clueless

"She didnt feel thirty. But then again again, what was being thirty supposed to feel like? When she was younger, thirty seemed so far away, she thought that a woman of that age would be so wise and knowledgeable, so settled in her life with a husband and children and a career. She had none of those things. She still felt as clueless as she had felt when she was twenty, only with a few more gray hairs and crows feet around her eyes." - Author: Cecelia Ahern

Quotes About Divorces

"Back therefore we find ourselves returning. Back to the wisdom of the plough; back to the wisdom of those who follow the sea. It is all a matter of the wheel coming full-circle. For the sophisticated system of mental reactions to which we finally give our adherence is only the intellectualised reproduction of what more happily constituted natures, without knowing what they possess, possess. Thus between true philosophers and the true simple people there is a magnetic understanding; whereas, the clever ones whose bastard culture only divorces them from the wisdom of the earth remain pilloried and paralysed on the prongs of their own conceit"." - Author: John Cowper Powys

Quotes About No Direction In Life

"But we cannot go back to the life we shared with you yesterday, a life which you will spread before us so temptingly when you return.

Hell has not opened before our eyes to no purpose, and he who has once seen it cannot find his way back to earthly symposiums." - Author: Friedrich Reck Malleczewen
