Quotes About Bible Awakening

"The Bible was penned by men. The Epistles of Paul were penned by that evangelist salesman and his students, desperate to bring mystery and excitement into a quiet philosophy, turning it into a religion promising the secret of an afterlife, answers to questions that previously no one could answer. Always remember, words written by men have an agenda. Sometimes their agenda is for the better, but its usually for the self, and that almost always leads down a dangerous path."~Character Mark from The Awakening, book one of The Judas Curse series." - Author: Angella Graff

Quotes About Breed

"Meeting writers is always so disappointing. I got over wanting to meet live writers quite a long time ago. There is this terrific book that has changed your life, and then you meet the author, and he has shifty eyes and funny shoes and he wont talk about anything except the injustice of the United States income tax structure toward people with fluctuating income, or how to breed Black Angus cows, or something." - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin

Quotes About Your Actions Define You

"All these commercials about health and diet and fitness. All of these ads for waistlines and libidos and teeth whiteners. If youre not taking care of yourself or eating right or exercising, if youre overweight or you have a small penis or you dont have bright enough teeth, then theres something wrong with you. Spiritually. Physically. Morally. Instead of being defined by your actions, youre defined instead by your smile. Your sexual performance. Your percentage of body fat." - Author: S.G. Browne

Quotes About Being Nothing Without God

"In Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis argues that human beings cannot be truly good or moral without faith in God and without submis- sion to the will of Christ. Unfortunately, Lewis does not provide any actual data for his assertions. They are nothing more than the mild musings of a wealthy British man, pondering the state of humanitys soul between his sips of tea. Had Lewis actually famil- iarized himself with real human beings of the secular sort, per- haps sat and talked with them, he would have had to reconsider this notion. As so many apostates explained to me, morality is most certainly possible beyond the confines of faith. Can people be good without God? Can a moral orientation be sustained and developed outside of a religious context? The answer to both of these questions is a resounding yes." - Author: Phil Zuckerman

Quotes About Forget And Move On

"Father comes home after many years of forgetting us, of not sending us money, of not loving us, not visiting us, not anything us, and parks in the shack, unable to move, unable to talk properly. unable to anything, vomiting and vomiting, Jesus, just vomiting and defecating on himself, and it smelling like something dead in there, dead and rotting, his body a black, terrible stick; I come in from playing Find bin Laden and he is there." - Author: NoViolet Bulawayo

Quotes About Smoking Spice

"All political movements are basically anti-creative — since a political movement is a form of war. "Theres no place for impractical dreamers around here," thats what they always say.

Both favor alcohol and are against pot." - Author: William S. Burroughs

Quotes About Scotland And Golf

"What most people dont understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. Thats why theyre always seen in Arizona, Scotland, and New Mexico.

Quotes About Summertime And Family

"Summertime, oh, summertime, pattern of life indelible, the fade-proof lake, the woods unshatterable, the pasture with the sweetfern and the juniper forever and ever . . . the cottages with their innocent and tranquil design, their tiny docks with the flagpole and the American flag floating against the white clouds in the blue sky, the little paths over the roots of the trees leading from camp to camp. This was the American family at play, escaping the city heat." - Author: E.B. White
