William Sloane Coffin Quotes

"Too many religious people make faith their aim. They think the greatest of these is faith, and faith defined as all but infallible doctrine. These are the dogmatic, divisive Christians, more concerned with freezing the doctrine than warming the heart. If faith can be exclusive, love can only be inclusive."

Ariel Gordon Quotes

"Two things consistently bring me pleasure: hot sweet tea and writing. Which is not to say that either are particularly good for me…I use entirely too much sugar and so far dont find sucralose to be a good alternative. Also, writing is not a practice that engenders confidence. Quite the opposite. Its about making yourself deliberately insecure so that you can write the next thing and have it be worth reading.And thats not even taking into consideration the business end of things, which can make you bitter if youre not careful…But Ive spent my the bulk of my life to date figuring out the right mix of fat and sugar in my tea and also, how to get incrementally better (I hope…) at the writing, so Im not giving it/them up!"

Quotes About Wertz

"Vic Wertz once hit a ball rather famously that was later described as such: It would have been a home run in any other park—including Yellowstone. Instead, hes remembered as the guy who got robbed by Willie Mays spectacular catch during the 1954 World Series between the Indians and the Giants, a play that remains one of the games all-time greatest defensive efforts. What people often forget about Wertz is that his greatest battle wasnt that one at bat, and that one out never defined his career. He was stricken with polio in 1955, and after 74 games his season was over and his career was hanging in the balance. The Catch by Willie Mays couldnt keep him down, and neither could polio—he came back in 1956, and despite playing in only 136 games he belted 32 home runs with 106 RBIs." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Rescue Cats

"…I tell you that loneliness itself is the secret. Its a secret you cannot tell anyone. Why?Because to confess your loneliness is to confess your failure as a human being. To confess would only cause others to pity and avoid you, afraid that what you have is catching. Your condition is caused by a lack of human relationship, and yet to admit to it only drives your possible rescuers farther away (while attracting cats).So you attempt to hide your loneliness in public, to behave, in fact, as though you have too many friends already, and thus you hope to attract people who will unwittingly save you. But it never works that way. Your condition is written all over your face, in the hunch of your shoulders, in the hollowness of your laugh. You fool no one.Believe me in this; Ive tried all the tricks of the lonely man." - Author: David Marusek

Quotes About Free Trade And Protectionism

"free trade economists have argued that the mere co-existence of protectionism and economic development does not prove that the former caused the latter. This is true. But i am at least trying to explain one phenomenon - economic development-with another that co-existed with it - protectionism. Free trade economists have to explain how free trade can be an explanation for the economic success of todays rich countries, when it simply had not been practised very much before they became rich." - Author: Ha Joon Chang

Quotes About Homemade Lemonade

Quotes About Depending On Family

"In our natural state we dislike dealing with God alone. Through our natural alienation from God we shrink from Him, and from eternal realities. This cleaves to us more or less, even after our regeneration. Hence it is, that more or less, even as believers, we have the same shrinking from standing with God alone,--from depending upon Him alone,--from looking to Him alone:--and yet this is the very position in which we ought to be, if we wish our faith to be strengthened. The more I am in a position to be tried in faith with reference to my body, my family, my service for the Lord, my business, etc., the more shall I have opportunity of seeing Gods help and deliverance." - Author: George Mueller
