[Philosophy Is To The Mind Of The Architect As Eyesight To His Steps. The Term 'genius' When Applied To Him Simply Means A Man Who Understands What Others Only Know About. A Poet, Artist Or Architect, Necessarily 'understands' In This Sense And Is Likely, If Not Careful, To Have The Term 'genius' Applied To Him; In Which Case He Will No Longer Be Thought Human, Trustworthy Or Companionable. Whatever May Be His Medium Of Expression He Utters Truth With Manifest Beauty Of Thought. If He Is An Architect, His Building Is Natural. In Him, Philosophy And Genius Live By Each Other, But The Combination Is Subject To Popular Suspicion And Appellation 'genius' Likely To Settle Him--so Far As The Public Is Concerned.]

Adam Roberts Quotes

"We used to think God made us in His image, and that meant we were special, until science told us we just evolved that way because it suited a landscape of trees and savannas. Thats what science does: it says, look again and youll see youre not special. But economics? Economics is also a science. And what does it say? ... It says: there is energy, and there are raw materials, and thats the cosmos. But without us the energy is random and the raw material is inert. Its only labour that makes the cosmos come alive. Its only us that make economics happen at all. And that makes us special."

Quotes About Chee

"He sees by faith an unseen Savior, who . . .loved him, gave Himself for him, paid his debts for him, bore his sins, carried his transgressions, rose again for him, and appears in Heaven for him as his Advocate at the right hand of God. He sees Jesus — and clings to Him. Seeing this Savior and trusting in Him — he feels peace and hope and willingly does battle against the foes of his soul.He sees . . .his own many sins, his own weak heart, a tempting world, a busy devil — and if he looked only at them, he might well despair. BUT he sees also a mighty Savior, an interceding Savior, a sympathizing Savior — His blood, His righteousness, His everlasting priesthood — and he believes that all this is his own. He sees Jesus — and casts his whole weight on Him. Seeing Him, he cheerfully fights on, with a full confidence that he will prove more than conqueror through Him that loved him (Romans 8:37)." - Author: J.C. Ryle

Quotes About A Mans Passion

"Do not be irritated either with those who sin or those who offend; do not have a passion for noticing every sin in your neighbour, and for judging him, as we are in the habit of doing. Everyone shall give an answer to God for himself. Everyone has a conscience; everyone hears Gods Word, and knows Gods Will either from books or from conversation with other people. Especially do not look with evil intention upon the sins of your elders, which do not regard you; "to his own master he standeth or falleth." Correct your own sins, amend your own life." - Author: St. John of Kronstadt
