ND Wilson Quotes

"Imagine a poem written with such enormous three-dimensional words that we had to invent a smaller word to reference each of the big ones; that we had to rewrite the whole thing in shorthand, smashing it into two dimensions, just to talk about it. Or dont imagine it. Look outside. Human language is our attempt at navigating Gods language; it is us running between the lines of His epic, climbing on the vowels and building houses out of the consonants."

Quotes About Vizio

"E curioso il modo che ha il destino di venire sotto forma di tempo. Anzi lo sarebbe, se non fosse che ce lha per vizio. Se uno, al momento del fatto che gli cambia la vita, buttasse locchio allorologio, vedrebbe le lancette che ripartono da uno zero fatto apposta per lui. Una risposta, una notizia, un incontro, un certo particolare squillo del telefono, arrivano con lanteprima. Si fanno vedere e scappano in avanti, mostrando la sequenza fin dove locchio la segue. Tutto il futuro non lo conosciamo. Quello più in là soprattutto. Ma il primo si. Lo vediamo benissimo." - Author: Diego De Silva

Quotes About Modern Life

"When our mother is seen only as the one-dimensional Mary of modern times, instead of the great dual force of life and death, She is relegated to the same second-class status of most women in the world. She is without desires of Her own, selfless and sexless except for Her womb. She is the cook, the mistress, bearer and caretaker of children and men. Men call upon Her and carry Her love and magic to form a formidable fortress, a team of cannons to protect them against their enemies. But for a long, long time the wars that women have been left to wage on behalf of men, on behalf of the human race, have started much sooner, in the home, in front of the hearth, in the womb. We do what we must to protect and provide for our young our families, our tribes" - Author: Ana Castillo

Quotes About Resisting Help

"The chief means of resisting manipulation is humility – knowing who we really are and facing it. You can only serve by love. You can only love by choice. True love cannot be the result of decree, force or manipulation. Jesus always kept his strength to make loving choices. He calls us to make loving choices necessary to be the servant of all." "Humility permits me to own my feelings – and to admit them. Now Im free to say, ‘Im angry. Im free to admit what I am reacting to. I am free to ask if anger is what the person wanted to produce in me, and to ask for help in changing if my reaction is inappropriate." - Author: Gayle D. Erwin

Quotes About Being Left Behind In A Relationship

"Since I spent much of my childhood being left behind and ignored, one might think that, as an adult, moments of perceived abandonment would feel old hat. The truth is, as an adult, I am always waiting to be left behind. Im always ready to be discarded and, therefore, I spend a significant amount of time preparing for this eventuality.I lower my expectations, I dont seek out meaningful relationships, and I dont engage in any sort of real intimacy, physical or otherwise.Engage is the key word here. Except, when I engage, when it happens, when Im left behind it doesnt feel old hat. It feels like it did the first time and it takes me by surprise. So, I dont let it happen." - Author: Penny Reid
