Quotes About Lifetime Love

"I believe that sometimes, the moment you say goodbye could be as painful as a lifetime worth of pain that you can experience while living with the memories of your loved ones. I couldnt stop myself from hallucinating about all those things that could have happened, while you were walking away from me today. I stopped walking and turned my head, expecting for you to do the same. I stayed there, motionless, and waited – for you to turn once, to smile, or wave. But you didnt. You just continued walking away from me, while I stayed there watching your silhouette becoming smaller, and smaller with time, until it disappeared completely. There was nothing else to wait. "What happened?" she asked me when I turned my head again towards the platform."She let me go, finally," was all I could say." - Author: Bhavya Kaushik

If my mother were alive today, shed laugh at me for still fantasizing - yet its the truth.Even now, whenever necessary, I still summon forth the old geezer - in theater programs, for example, to credit him for costumes that Ive designed, ones for which I prefer not getting the hook. Yes, hes another of my names: the unlikely but lovely and perfectly logical" - Author: Paul Taylor

Quotes About The Enlightenment By Philosophers

"Too often, contemporary continental philosophers take the "other" of philosophy to mean literature, but not religion, which is for them just a little too wholly other, a little beyond their much heralded tolerance of alterity. They retain an antagonism to religious texts inherited straight from the Enlightenment, even though they pride themselves on having made the axioms and dogmas of the Enlightenment questionable. But the truth is that contemporary continental philosophy is marked by the language of the call and the response, of the gift, of hospitality to the other, of the widow, the orphan and the stranger, and by the very idea of the "wholly other," a discourse that any with the ears to hear knows has a Scriptural provenance and a Scriptural resonance. ("A Prologue", Journal of Philosophy and Scripture 1.1, Fall 2003, p. 1)." - Author: John D. Caputo
