[The Dial Of The Clock Wears Out Unevenly; Most Worn Is The Area Round Eight. As It Is Stared At With Abrasive Glancesunfailingly Twice A Day, It Is Weathered Away. On The Other Side The Area At Two Is Only Half As Worn, For Closed Eyes At NightPass Without Stopping. If There Is One Who Possesses A Flat Watch Evenly Worn, It Is He Who, Failing At The Start, Is Running One Lap Behind. Thus The World Is Always A Lap Fast--The World He Thinks He Sees Has Not Yet Begun. Illusory Time, When The Hands Stand Vertically On The Dial; Without The Bell Announcing The Raising Of The Curtain, The Play Has Come To An End.]

Quotes About Family Thats Not Blood

"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you dont enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that youre not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isnt going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness." - Author: Andy Rooney

Quotes About Taking For Granted

"As followers of Christ, we are to be careful not to remain victims of the many cultural presuppositions of who he is, and what he teaches, insofar as taking for granted our own caricatures of him. Let it boil in both mind and heart the question, If Jesus were to appear today, how many of us would actually recognize him and his teachings (or would it simply be a recount of his first visit)?" - Author: Criss Jami

Quotes About Disaster Planning

"The rest of the question-and-answer period was pretty standard stuff, with a few hardballs thrown in just to keep things interesting. Where did the senator stand on the death penalty? Given that most corpses tended to get up and try to eat folks, he didnt see it as a productive pursuit. What was his opinion on public health care? Failure to keep people healthy enough to stay alive bordered on criminal negligence. Was he prepared to face the ongoing challenges of disaster preparedness? After the mass reanimations following the explosions in San Diego, he couldnt imagine any presidency surviving without improved disaster planning." - Author: Mira Grant

Quotes About Anxiety And God

"I make soup and I back bread and I know my supreme need is joy in God and I know I cant experience deep joy in God until I deep trust in God. I shine sinks and polish through to the realization that trusting God is my most urgent need. If I deep trusted God in all the facets of my life, wouldnt that deep heal my anxiety, my self-condemnation, my soul holes? The fear is suffocating, terrorizing, and I want the remedy, and it is trust. Trust is everything. If fear keeps our lives small, does a life that receives all of God in this moment grow large too?" - Author: Ann Voskamp
