Its like your mind explodes and all thats left inside your body is heat." - Author: Katie Kacvinsky

Quotes About Hoover Dam

"Hoover Dam," Thalia said. "Its huge."We stood at the rivers edge, looking up at a curve of concrete that loomed between the cliffs. People were walking along the top of the dam. They were so tiny they looked like fleas.The naiads had left with a lot of grumbling—not in words I could understand, but it was obvious they hated this dam blocking up their nice river. Our canoes floated back downstream, swirling in the wake from the dams discharge vents."Seven hundred feet tall," I said. "Built in the 1930s.""Five million cubic acres of water," Thalia said.Graver sighed. "Largest construction project in the United States."Zoe stared at us. "How do you know all that?""Annabeth," I said. "She liked architecture.""She was nuts about monuments," Thalia said."Spouted facts all the time." Grover sniffled. "So annoying.""I wish she were here," I said." - Author: Rick Riordan

Quotes About Bible Elections

". . . Beware of being wise above that which is written. Beware of forming fanciful theories of your own, and then trying to make the Bible square with them. Beware of making selections from your Bible to suit your taste. Dare not to say, ‘I believe this verse, for I like it. I refuse that, for I cannot reconcile it with my views. Nay! but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? By what right do you talk in this way? Surely it were better to say, over every chapter in the word, ‘Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth. Ah! if men would do this, they would never deny the unquenchable fire." - Author: J.C. Ryle

Quotes About What Heroism Is

"I think, Olympia said slowly, that I know you quite well. She looked down at the deck and added in a carefully mild voice, You can be a scoundrel; I know that. You stole from me and betrayed me and lied to me. You have no morals and no ideals; you think of yourself first and youre a coward sometimes on that account. She hesitated, chewing her lip. What people call a coward, anyway. I dont know what cowardice is anymore. I dont know what heroism is. She looked up. But I know one thing, and I learned it from you. I know what courage means. It means to pick up and go on, no matter what. It means having a heart of iron, like they say. You have that." - Author: Laura Kinsale
