Wrath James White Quotes

"Could it be that what we called aberrant behavior was in fact the natural state of man? Was there an instinct to kill? An instinct to rob,rape,maim,and destroy? In animals Joe saw every act that man had proclaimed criminal and sinful performed with startling regularity."

Mort W Lumsden Quotes

"Dont most astrophysicists now predict some "end of the line" - an end to it all? Not just the death of things, but the annihilation of everything. Some great contraction, or collapse. Or, perhaps, some vast dissipation into eternal emptiness. Maybe its all swallowed up by an immense black hole, which then swallows itself. But, whatever the case, their extinction is inevitable and absolute. So complete as to erase any and all evidence that this reality - this existence - ever took place. So complete that, perhaps, for all intents and purposes, it never really did. (attrib: F.L. Vanderson)"

Quotes About Throat Cancer

"Mr Freeman: "Art without emotion is like chocolate cake without sugar. It makes you gag." He sticks his finger down his throat. "The next time you work on your trees, dont think about trees. Think about love, or hate, or joy, or pain- whatever makes you feel something, makes your palms sweat, or your toes curl. Focus on that feeling. When people dont express themselves, they die on piece at a time. Youd be shocked at how many adults are really dead inside- walking through their days with no idea who they are, just waiting for a heart attack or cancer or a mack truck to come along and finish the job. Its the saddest thing I know." - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Quotes About Luminous

"The U.S. has a so-called health care system that has nothing to do with the promotion of health. Those who run this system do not care about your health, and its far from being a system. Its a fragmented patchwork of procedure-oriented services that are meshed in a voluminous trail of paper payments, with little relevance to community-based needs. This misdirected, disease-managed non-care system of symptom suppression demands more and more treatment at higher and higher costs. If they cared at all, youd be treated like a human, not like a number resembling, quite frankly, the ear tags on a cattle herd." - Author: Gary Tunsky

Quotes About Batteries

"Someone once explained to me the difference between an introvert and an extrovert: both can enjoy going to a party, but the extrovert is engergized by society, whereas the introvert has to recover from it.

Quotes About Death Atheist

"If the evolutionary mechanism of natural selection depends on death, destruction, and violence of the strong against the weak, then these things are perfectly natural. On what basis, then, does the atheist judge the natural world to be horribly wrong, unfair, and unjust?" - Author: Timothy Keller

Quotes About Lion And Lioness

"If a lioness spends her hours pacing back and forth in a cage of gold with the finest meats at her disposal, does that make her any less of a prisoner? If that same felines fangs are filed down to blunt, un-tearing teeth and her roar is silenced, can she still be called a lioness?" - Author: Kristen Reed

Quotes About Mithril

"have tokens that I was bidden to show to thee - to thee in especial, if thou shouldst dare to come. He signed to one of his guards, and he came forward bearing a bundle swathed in black cloths.The Messanger put these aside, and there to the wonder and dismay of all the Captains he held up first the short sword that Sam had carried, and next a grey cloak with an elven-brooch, and last the coat of mithril-mail that Frodo had worn wrapped in his tattered garments. A blackness came before their eyes, and it seemed to them in a moment of silence that the world stood still, but their hearts were dead and their last hope gone." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Professional Photographers

"If I speak in the tongues of Reformers and of professional theologians, and I have not personal faith in Christ, my theology is nothing but the noisy beating of a snare drum. And if I have analytic powers and the gift of creating coherent conceptual systems of theology, so as to remove liberal objections, and have not personal hope in God, I am nothing. And if I give myself to resolving the debate between supra and infralapsarianism, and to defending inerrancy, and to learning the Westminster Catechism, yea, even the larger one, so as to recite it by heart backwards and forwards, and have not love, I have gained nothing." - Author: Kevin Vanhoozer

Quotes About Cowardice And Bravery

"Most civilisation is based on cowardice. Its so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame." - Author: Frank Herbert
