Derek Prince Quotes

"God first appeared on the scene of human history in the role of a matchmaker. What a profound and exciting revelation!Is it too much to suggest that Eve came to Adam on the arm of the Lord Himself in the same way that a bride today walks down the aisle of the church on her fathers arm? What human mind can fathom the depth of love and joy that filled the heart of the great Creator as He united the man and woman in this first marriage ceremony?Surely this account is one among countless indications that the Bible is not a work of merely human authorship. Moses is generally accepted as the author of the creation record. But apart from supernatural inspiration, he would never have dared to open human history with a scene of such amazing intimacy—first between God and man, and then between man and woman."

Vigen Guroian Quotes

"My son Rafi is enchanted with cyberspace. But we are not disembodied mind or spirit, we are our bodies - cruising the Internet wont teach us that. It may even trick us into thinking that having a body and a place is not important. Gardening teaches us differently. I do not mean industrial mechanized farming, I mean the kind of gardening that any one of us can do with his hands and feet and the simplest tools."

Quotes About Knight

"But when you walk through yonder gate," Churchill said, pointing toward the Middle Tower at the end of the causeway, which was visible only as a crenellated cutout in the orange sky, "youll find yourself in a London you no longer know. The changes wrought by the Fire were nothing. In that London, loyalty and allegiance are subtle and fluxional. Tis a chessboard with not only black and white pieces, but others as well, in diverse shades. Youre a Bishop, and Im a Knight, I can tell that much by our shapes, and the changes we have wrought on the board; but by fire-light Tis difficult to make out your true shade." - Author: Neal Stephenson

Quotes About Life Exhale

"I didnt hear the exact moment Sarren ended Zekes life. I was just aware of his breathing, tagged at first, then seizing up, as if he could no longer gasp for her. And then, a long, agonizingly slow exhale, the last gulp departing his lungs, as Ezekiels tortured breaths finally, irreversibly, stopped altogether."Good night, sweet prince." Sarren crooned, a velvet whisper.The recording clicked off." - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Authority In Lord Of The Flies

"Here is a man who was resigned to his fate, who was walking to the scaffold and about to die like a coward, thats true, but at least he was about to die without resisting and without recriminations. Do you know what gave him that much strength? Do you know what consoled him? It was the fact that another man was to die like him, that another man was to die before him! Put two sheep in the slaughter-house or two oxen in the abattoir and let one of them realize that his companion will not die, and the sheep will bleat with joy, the ox low with pleasure. But man, man whom God made in His image, man to whom God gave this first, this sole, this supreme law, that he should love his neighbour, man to whom God gave a voice to express his thoughts - what is mans first cry when he learns that his neighbour is saved? A curse. All honour to man, the masterpiece of nature, the lord of creation!" - Author: Alexandre Dumas

"You should talk to him," Jay said."No way." - Author: Wendy Higgins
