Dew Platt Quotes

"There is ascension to potential that Plato couldnt conceive while prescribing idealism to conception as highest existences. With Streams, there isnt a difference between ideas and instantiations. They are both authenticated within all possibilities in Stream, within the Primal Cause as ordered. Ideas as ordered constructs in consciousness, instantiations as ordered effects. Instantiations for instance are ordered products from ideas. Ideas are ordered constructs in consciousness. And in authentication, they are the same as external effects."

Judith Clarke Quotes

"And sometimes, even though Dad said Dr. Snow was the best psychologist in the city and a very famous man, Jess thought there were things he didnt know either. "Time heals all wounds," hed said to them once, his voice so soft and thoughtful he could have been talking to himself. It had seemed a cruel thing to say, though Jess knew he hadnt meant to be unkind. Vida had been really angry with him."No, it doesnt!" she shouted. "Youre wrong! It doesnt!"

Ellen Lupton Quotes

"Universal design systems can no longer be dismissed as the irrelevant musings of a small, localized design community. A second modernism has emerged, reinvigorating the utopian search for universal forms that marked the birth of design as a discourse and a discipline nearly a century earlier."

"Those who see the impossible as unattainable are destined to reside in mediocrity"

Joseph Fourier Quotes

"There cannot be a language more universal and more simple, more free from errors and obscurities...more worthy to express the invariable relations of all natural things [than mathematics]. [It interprets] all phenomena by the same language, as if to attest the unity and simplicity of the plan of the universe, and to make still more evident that unchangeable order which presides over all natural causes"

Heather Sally Quotes

"I see life as a waste. You grow up. Get a job. Have a family. Retire. Then die. But theres one thing worth living for and thats love and it always will be. It will be happiness with someone you cant live without. Someone to have silly arguments with and laugh about. Someone you can grow old with. Someone to recognize your scars and understand them. Thats how I see life"

Quotes About Fathers Funny

"...Ive made it my business to observe fathers and daughters. And Ive seen some incredible, beautiful things. Like the little girl whos not very cute - her teeth are funny, and her hair doesnt grow right, and shes got on thick glasses - but her father holds her hand and walks with her like shes a tiny angel that no one can touch. He gives her the best gift a woman can get in this world: protection. And the little girl learns to trust the man in her life. And all the things that the world expects from women - to be beautiful, to soothe the troubled spirit, heal the sick, care for the dying, send the greeting card, bake the cake - allof those things become the way we pay the father back for protecting us..." - Author: Adriana Trigiani

Quotes About Love That Never Existed

"Do you think you love that fellow?""I dont know." She closed her eyes, but the tears overflowed nevertheless. "All I know is that he opened a door into a whole new world I never even knew existed. Ive stepped through that door, and I cant return.(...)Its like being blind from birth and then one day suddenly being able to see. And not just see, but to witness the sun rising in all her glory across the azure sky. The dusky lavenders and blues lightening to pinks and reds, spreading across the horizon until the entire earth is lit. Until one has to blink and fall to ones knees in awe at the light.(...)Even if one were to be made blind again in the next instant, one would ever after remember and know what was missed. What could be." - Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

Quotes About Mommy And Son

"A friend of ours, the wife of a pastor at a church in Colorado, had once told me about something her daughter, Hannah, said when she was three years old. After the morning service was over one Sunday, Hannah tugged on her moms skirt and asked. "Mommy, why do some people in church have lights over their heads and some dont?" At the time, I remember thinking two things: First, I wouldve knelt down and asked Hannah, "Did I have a light over my head? Please say yes!" I also wondered what Hannah had seen, and whether she had seen it because, like my son, she had a childlike faith." - Author: Todd Burpo

Quotes About Legalism

"People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated." - Author: D.A. Carson
