Quotes About Inspired By Crush

"These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig." - Author: Alfred Hitchcock

Quotes About Charity Lds

"But now the emphasis has shifted to making it. People have surrendered their personal moral objectives to government or schools or psychologists. Its a change that accelerated with the boom after the war. . . . There has been a surrender to pragmatism; the true is what makes you successful and the false is what makes you fail. But I wonder what happens to faith, hope and charity in such a situation? People began to form their moral ideas not in the old way but by their professions and guilds; that tends to transfer sin to the corporation." - Author: Saul Bellow

Quotes About Bridegroom

"Out from the servient shoulders of some smooth-tongued Waiter it stares, into the scared dilating pupils of the White Satin Bride with her pledged hand clutching her Bridegrooms sleeve. Up from the gravelly, pick-and-shovel labor of the new-made grave it lifts its weirdly magnetic eyes to the Widows tears. Down from some petted Princelings silver-trimmed saddle horse it smiles its electrifying, wistful smile into the Peasants sodden weariness. Across the slender white rail of an always out-going steamer it stings back into your gray, land-locked consciousness like the tang of a scarlet spray. And the secret of the face, of course, is "Lure"; but to save your soul you could not decide in any specific case whether the lure is the lure of personality, or the lure of physiognomy—a mere accidental, coincidental, haphazard harmony of forehead and cheek-bone and twittering facial muscles." - Author: Eleanor Hallowell Abbott

Quotes About Fixing Your Life

"Shepherd Book: What are we up to, sweetheart? River: Fixing your Bible. Book: I, um... What? River: Bibles broken. Contradictions, false logistics - doesnt make sense. Shepherd Book: No, no. You-you-you cant... River: So well integrate non-progressional evolution theory with Gods creation of Eden. Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noahs ark is a problem. Shepherd Book: Really? River: Well have to call it early quantum state phenomenon. Only way to fit 5000 species of mammal on the same boat. Shepherd Book: River, you dont fix the Bible. River: Its broken. It doesnt make sense. Book: Its not about making sense. Its about believing in something, and letting that belief be real enough to change your life. Its about faith. You dont fix faith, River. It fixes you." - Author: Ben Edlund

Quotes About Thinking You Know Someone

"We walk until there arent more houses, all the way to the part of the beach where the current makes the waves come in then rush back out so that the two waves clash, water casting up like a geyser. We watch that for a while and then Scottie says, "I wish Mom was here." Im thinking the exact same thought. Thats how you know you love someone, I guess, when you cant experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too. Every day I kept track of anecdotes, occurrences, and gossip, bullet-pointing the news in my head and even rehearsing my stories before telling them to Joanie in bed at night." - Author: Kaui Hart Hemmings

Quotes About Mater Dents

"In this book it is spoken of the Sephiroth and the Paths; of Spirits and Conjurations; of Gods, Spheres, Planes, and many other things which may or may not exist. It is immaterial whether these exist or not. By doing certain things certain results will follow; students are most earnestly warned against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them." - Author: Aleister Crowley

Quotes About Insofar

"We are not free to love God insofar as we are enslaved to creatures. And we all are. We are addicted to whatever we cannot part with that is less than God, our true good. And that includes ourselves--especially ourselves and our own will. So we must renounce this too, this especially. Gods world is not the problem; our attitude is. God does not want us to renounce the unspeakably beautiful world he gave us as creation, as gift, as it really is. He wants us to renounce it as creator, as our god, as it really is not. This wonderful world is our God-given house to live in and to live the love of God in. But Gods bride must learn not to love her house as if it were her husband." - Author: Peter Kreeft
