Crystal A Cordero Quotes

"Love isnt about finding the perfect person. A perfect person does not exist. Love is about accepting someone for who they are completely, good and bad. Its about seeing their flaws and understanding that it makes them who they are. Love isnt always going to be easy, in fact it really shouldnt be. If love is easy, it isnt love."

Quotes About Great Things Come To Those Who Wait

"When I was extremely young and shockingly stupid, I thought you werent supposed to ever get angry at anybody you cared about (lest you suspect Im exaggerating the "shockingly stupid" part, I also thought Mount Rushmore was a natural phenomenon). I honestly believed that people who were truly in love would never dream of having a good, old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out fight. I guess when youre the type of girl who walks around thinking that the wind just sort of sculpted Teddy Roosevelt into the side of a mountain, the concept of a fairy-tale relationship makes total sense." - Author: Lisa Kogan

Quotes About Christian Revival

"When the fallow ground is thoroughly broken up in the hearts of Christians, when they have confessed and made restitution, as I have taught in my former articles--if the work be thorough and honest--they will naturally and inevitably fulfill the conditions, and will prevail in prayer. But it cannot be too distinctly understood that none others will. What we commonly hear in prayer and conference meetings is not prevailing prayer. It is often astonishing and lamentable to witness the delusions that prevail upon the subject. Who that has witnessed real revivals of religion has not been struck with the change that comes over the whole spirit and manner of the prayers of really revived Christians? I do not think I ever could have been converted if I had not discovered the solution of the question: "Why is it that so much that is called prayer is not answered?" - Author: Charles Grandison Finney

Quotes About Realitate

"- Nu vreau să fac ceva ce o să regreți. Spatele lui Grace se arcui sub degetele mele de parcă atingerea mea o adusese la viață. - Atunci, nu te opri.

Quotes About What Heaven Is

"Time, the Captain said, is not what you think. He sat down next to Eddie. Dying? Not the end of everything. We think it is. But what happens on earth is only the beginning... I figure its like in the Bible, the Adam and Eve deal...Adams first night on earth? When he lays down to sleep? He thinks its all over, right? He doesnt know what sleep is. His eyes are closing and he thinks hes leaving this world, right? Only he isnt. He wakes up the next morning and he has a fresh new world to work with, but he has something else, too. He has his yesterday...Thats the way I see it, thats what were getting here, soldier. Thats what heaven is. You get to make sense of your yesterday.~The Captain on heaven, pgs 91-92" - Author: Mitch Albom

Quotes About Morgue

Quotes About Heroism

"Well, my thoughts about California are kind of mythological. To me, as well as being a real place, its a place where people go to find something - to find happiness or to realize their dreams. So it has that kind of quality of heroism and heartache, and Australia has that, as well." - Author: Colin Hay

Quotes About Feelings

"Which of my feelings are real? Which of the mes is me? The wild, impulsive, chaotic, energetic, and crazy one? Or the shy, withdrawn, desperate, suicidal, doomed, and tired one? Probably a bit of both, hopefully much that is neither." - Author: Kay Redfield Jamison
