Anthony Marais Quotes

"No philosopher was ever apathetic. If there is no love, it is not philosophy."

Ben Witherington III Quotes

"Is the Lords Supper only for Christians? Whenever I ask this question I immediately remember the character of those that partook of the Last Supper with Jesus. They were certainly Jews, some better Jews than others, but Jesus shared this meal knowingly even with Judas. Or again consider the Emmaus Road encounter. Jesus shares this meal with those who had given up on his being the One to redeem Israel, who were leaving Jerusalem downcast and disappointed, and who were oblivious to the fact that it was Jesus who was speaking and sharing with them! There has to be a balance in the liturgy to help the congregation make a decision if they themselves are ready to partake of this Meal in a worthy manner (hence the ye who do truly and earnestly repent clause), while at the same time joyfully welcoming all who are willing and ready and able to do so."

James Riley Quotes

"But its just about moments, not ever-afters." He grinned. "Like when youre right in the middle of the ocean with your friends, with no one trying to kill you in any kind of horrifying way. You have to appreciate these moments when they happen, cause obviously we dont get many of them."

Quotes About Laughing And Love

"Sydneys the kind of port that leaves a mark on a sailor," the old man mused. "Really?" Haakon said, wondering what the man meant. "It did on me," he said, opening up his shirt to display his chest. It was covered with tattoos! At the top, SYDNEY was printed in elaborate red and blue letters. Beneath that was an enticing selection of names and dates. "Mary, 1838...Adella, 1840..." The old sailor began laughing. "Beatrice, 1843...Helen, 1846." And then finally, "Mother." There was no date after "Mother." "Mothers you love forever," he said. Everybody laughed then, including Haakon, though the thought brought some sadness to his heart. He did love his mother forever, and he missed her as well." - Author: Bonnie Bryant Hiller

Quotes About Zen Detachment

"I felt I was drawing close to that age, that place in life, where you realize one day what youd told yourself was a Zen detachment turns out to be naked fear. Youd had one serious love relationship in your life and it had ended in tragedy, and the tragedy had broken something inside you. But instead of trying to repair the broken place, or at least really stop and look at it, you skated and joked. You had friends, you were a decent citizen. You hurt no one. And your life was somehow just about half of what it could be." - Author: Roland Merullo

Quotes About Liv

"Its saying no. Thats your first hint that somethings alive. It says no. Thats how you know a baby is starting to turn into a person.

You wouldnt even want to. No is the heart of thinking." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente
