[The Old Thing Where It Always Was, Back Again. As When A Man, Having Found At Last What He Sought, A Woman, For Example, Or A Friend, Loses It, Or Realises What It Is. And Yet It Is Useless Not To Seek, Not To Want, For When You Cease To Seek You Start To Find, And When You Cease To Want, Then Life Begins To Ram Her Fish And Chips Down Your Gullet Until You Puke, And Then The Puke Down Your Gullet Until You Puke The Puke, And Then The Puked Puke Until You Begin To Like It. The Glutton Castaway, The Drunkard In The Desert, The Lecher In Prison, They Are The Happy Ones. To Hunger, Thirst, Lust, Every Day Afresh And Every Day In Vain, After The Old Prog, The Old Booze, The Old Whores, That's The Nearest We'll Ever Get To Felicity, The New Porch And The Very Latest Garden. I Pass On The Tip For What It Is Worth.]

James H Cone Quotes

"Indeed our survival and liberation depend upon our recognition of the truth when it is spoken and lived by the people. If we cannot recognize the truth, then it cannot liberate us from untruth. To know the truth is to appropriate it, for it is not mainly reflection and theory. Truth is divine action entering our lives and creating the human action of liberation."

Quotes About Born And Death

"Where I grew up, death is a constant visitor. A virus, bacteria, a parasite; drought and famine; soldiers, and torturers; could bring it to anyone, any time. Death comes riding on raindrops that turned to floods. It catches the imagination of men in positions of authority who order their subordinates to hunt, torture, and kill people they imagine to be enemies. Death lures many others to take their own lives in order to escape a dismal reality. For many women, because of the perception of lost honor, death comes at the hands of a father, brother, or husband. Death comes to young women giving birth to new life, leaving the newborn orphaned in the hands of strangers. For those who live in anarchy and civil war, as in the country of my birth, Somalia, death is everywhere." - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Quotes About Stories And Facts

"We mostly understand ourselves through an endless series of stories told to ourselves by ourselves and others.
