"Courage in danger is half the battle."

Warsan Shire Quotes

"Your daughter is ugly.She knows loss intimately,carries whole cities in her belly.As a child, relatives wouldnt hold her.She was splintered wood and sea water.They said she reminded them of the war.On her fifteenth birthday you taught herhow to tie her hair like rope and smoke it over burning frankincense.You made her gargle rosewaterand while she coughed, saidmacaanto girls like you shouldnt smellof lonely or empty.You are her mother.Why did you not warn her,hold her like a rotting boatand tell her that men will not love herif she is covered in continents,if her teeth are small colonies,if her stomach is an islandif her thighs are borders?What man wants to lay down and watch the world burn in his bedroom? Your daughters face is a small riot,her hands are a civil war,a refugee camp behind each ear,a body littered with ugly thingsbut God, doesnt she wearthe world well."

Paul Tillich Quotes

"And so we use them for a kind of pleasure which can be called "fun." But it is not the creative kind of fun often connected with play; it is, rather, a shallow, distracting, greedy way of "having fun." And it is not by chance that it is that type of fun which can easily be commercialized, for it is dependent on calculable reactions, without passion, without risk, without love. Of all the dangers that threaten our civilization, this is one of the most dangerous ones: the escape from ones emptiness through a "fun" which makes joy impossible."

Austin Farrer Quotes

"Christ does not save us by acting a parable of divine love; he acts the parable of divine love by saving us. That is the Christian faith."

Robert E Sherwood Quotes

"To be able to write a play a man must be sensitive, imaginative, naive, gullible, passionate; he must be something of an imbecile, something of a poet, something of a liar, something of a damn fool."

Will Sergeant Quotes

Philip K Dick Quotes

"We should take mothers in high seas and drown them there, they are as poisonous as lead in the air."

Quotes About Bible Damnation

"The book the man is reading is the Word of God, the Bible. It has become both the focus of and the reason for his current state of perplexity and distress.

These fears are an ever-present weight upon his entire person.4." - Author: John Bunyan

Quotes About Cherishing Someone You Love

"You cannot kill me here. Bring your soldiers, your death, your disease, your collapsed economy because it doesnt matter, I have nothing left to lose and you cannot kill me here. Bring the tears of orphans and the wails of a mothers loss, bring your God damn air force and Jesus on a cross, bring your hate and bitterness and long working hours, bring your empty wallets and love long since gone but you cannot kill me here. Bring your sneers, your snide remarks and friendships never felt, your letters never sent, your kisses never kissed, cigarettes smoked to the bone and cancer killing fears but you cannot kill me here. For I may fall and I may fail but I will stand again each time and you will find no satisfaction. Because you cannot kill me here." - Author: Iain S. Thomas

Quotes About Plec

"De o sută de ori am vrut să mă omor, dar n-am putut deoarece îmi plăcea încă viaţa. Slăbiciunea asta ridicolă e poate una din aplecările noastre cele mai nenorocite; este oare ceva mai prost pe lume decât să vrei să duci într-una o povară pe care în orice clipă ai vrea s-o arunci, să-ţi fie scârbă de fiinţa ta şi totuşi să ţii mereu la ea, să dezmierdăm şarpele care ne roade până când ne înghite inima?" - Author: Voltaire
