"God created the angels, with their natural propensity to good. Later, he made beasts with their animal desires. But God was pleased with neither. So he fashioned man, a combination of angel and beast, free to follow good or evil."

Erin McCarthy Quotes

"Hey! Give that back!" Panic started to set in. Ignoring the fact that I was only in my panties, I jumped up out of bed and grabbed at the sweatshirt, trying to pull it back to me. I couldnt lose it, I just couldnt. But then his jaw dropped. "Youre not wearing pants!" He slapped his hand over his eyes and let me pull the shirt out of his grip. "Damn it, put some clothes on." That gave me pause, and might have made me laugh if I wasnt so freaked out. The demon from hell was unnerved by me being half-dressed?"

Jerome Ferrari Quotes

"Peut-être pouvons-nous même reconnaître les signes presque imperceptibles qui annoncent quun monde vient de disparaître, non pas le sifflement des obus par-dessus les plaines éventrées du Nord, mais le déclenchement dun obturateur, qui trouble à peine la lumière vibrante de lété, la main fine et abîmée dune jeune femme qui referme tout doucement, au milieu de la nuit, une porte sur ce qui naurait pas dû être sa vie, ou la voile carrée dun navire croisant sur les eaux bleues de la Méditerranée, au large dHippone, portant depuis Rome la nouvelle inconcevable que des hommes existent encore, mais que leur monde nest plus."

Quotes About Eternal Soul

"Only a woman can carry in her body an eternal being which bears the very image of God. Only she is the recipient of the miracle of life. Only a woman can conceive and nurture this life using her own flesh and blood, and then deliver a living soul into the world. God has bestowed upon her alone a genuine miracle — the creation of life, and the fusing of an eternal soul with mortal flesh. This fact alone establishes the glory of motherhood.Despite the most creative plans of humanist scientists and lawmakers to redefine the sexes, no man will ever conceive and give birth to a child. The fruitful womb is a holy gift given by God to women alone. This is one reason why the office of wife and mother is the highest calling to which a woman can aspire.This is the reason why nations that fear the Lord esteem and protect mothers. They glory in the distinctions between men and women, and attempt to build cultures in which motherhood is honored and protected." - Author: Douglas W. Phillips

Quotes About Sweet Voices

"The Night-Swansby Walter De la MareTis silence on the enchanted lake,And silence in the air serene,Save for the beating of her heart,The lovely-eyed Evangeline.She sings across the waters clearAnd dark with trees and stars between,The notes her fairy godmotherTaught her, the child Evangeline.As might the unrippled pool reply,Faltering an answer far and sweet,Three swans as white as mountain snowSwim mantling to her feet.And still upon the lake they stay,Their eyes black stars in all their snow,And softly, in the glassy pool,Their feet beat darkly to and fro.She rides upon her little boat,Her swans swim through the starry sheen,Rowing her into Fairyland--The lovely-eyed Evangeline.Tis silence on the enchanted lake,And silence in the air serene;Voices shall call in vain againOn earth the child Evangeline.Evangeline! Evangeline!Upstairs, downstairs, all in vain.Her room is dim; her flowers faded;She answers not again." - Author: Walter de la Mare

Quotes About Hero Worship

"We are a race of tradition-lovers in a new land, of king-reverers in a Republic, of hero-worshipers in a society of mundane get-and-spend. It is a Country and a Time where any bank clerk or common laborer can become a famous outlaw, where an outlaw can in a very short time be sainted in song and story into a Robin Hood, where a Frontier Model Excalibur can be drawn from the block at any gunshop for twenty dollars." - Author: Oakley Hall

Quotes About Pleasure And Pain

"Nostalgia is, by its very nature, bittersweet, the happiest memories laced with melancholy. Its that combination, that opposition of forces, that makes it so compelling. People, places, events, times: we miss them, and theres a pleasure in the missing and a sadness in the love.The feeling is most acute, sometimes cripplingly so, when we find ourselves longing for the moment were in, the people were actually with.That nameless feeling, that sense of excruciating beauty, of pained happiness, is at the core of "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)." - Author: Robert J. Wiersema

Quotes About Lep

"Ne znam s kim se vi družite, ali ja već više meseci, kako sednem za neki sto, čujem kukanje. Žale se ljudi na dinar, na cene, na penzije, na situaciju ovde ili tamo, na mlade, na stare... I kukaju... Sve mi je dosadnije, zato, da se viđam i da se srećem. Pa mi je lepše da se zatvorim u svoju sobu...da prelistam neku poštenu knjigu i da još malo verujem, đavo ga odneo, da na svetu ima i lepih stvari... A ima ih. Verujte" - Author: Miroslav Antić

Quotes About Germany

"[About the wives of Weinsburg] They may only be a legend. I like to think they were real. Once the city of Weinsburg in Germany was under siege. The enemy emperor was dangerous but not unmerciful. When it became inevitable that the city would fall, the men of Weinsberg pleaded for their women, that they be allowed to flee with their lives. The emperor relented and allowed the women to leave the city with only the valuables they could carry on their backs. The day came and the gates of the city opened and the emperor watched in shock as the women stumbled through the gates nearly breaking under the weight of their husbands and fathers who they carried on their backs. Their love humbled the emperor and he declared all would be spared. ~ Nora" - Author: Tiffany Reisz
