"Dont cry because first priority is happiness."

Luke Timothy Johnson Quotes

"What is it, really, that we could lose if we handed ourselves over to the discernment of faith? Would we really lose anything except the illusion of control? This question suggests that there may be an idolatrous project underlying resistance to spiritual discernment: the desire for a decision-making process that we can predict and control.But the obedience of faith offers no certainties, not even that of being certain of our our fidelity. We cannot know if the decision we make here and now are correct. We only know that they are the best we are able to make, and that in the future we might both regret them and need to change them. The reason has nothing to do with our sinfulness and everything to do with the fact that faith has to do with the Living God, who always moves ahead of us in surprising and sometimes shocking ways. "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God" (Heb. 10:31)."

Sean Hayes Quotes

"They might have a long way to go before truly accepting gay people into their lives, but they have accepted the show into their living rooms each and every week."

Jane Brox Quotes

"As a stalwart reader of printed books, Im left to wonder what will happen to the wide, slow silty river of the their history, to the countless volumes waiting now in the abandoned silence of library stacks. Stacks: The word itself connects books to the harvest, to corn and hay. They were always earthbound. Smell the must, feel the brittle, browning pages between your thumb and forefinger. The tears, the cracked spines, the stains and folds. Even if we readers forget them, printed books will hold us in their memory."

George Pierce Baker Quotes

"But what is drama? Broadly speaking, it is whatever by imitative action rouses interest or gives pleasure."

Rudy Wiebe Quotes

"Understand is not the word; you are right, you can never really understand about someone, anyone, even yourself. It is best to believe in them as human; feel that they are alive like you and need warmth, concern."

Viktor Mayer Schonberger Quotes

"Sometimes the constraints that we live with, and presume are the same for everything, are really only functions of the scale in which we operate."

Jeremy Renner Quotes

"I like to stay busy, I like to stay focused, and I like to stay creative. Without being creative Id be dead."

Charles Willeford Quotes

"A simple cup of tea is far from a simple matter."

Quotes About Pyre

"Why did so many teenagers fall for Stanley Horowitzs tricks?""These were impressionable teenagers," Nick explained. "Many of them were devoted fans of romantic Vampyre stories. They over-romanticized what it means to be a Vampyre, and that gave Stanley a way to manipulate them.""Ive read Twilight," Tamara said. "My daughter is a huge fan. Is she in any danger?""The danger arises from wanting to belong to the in crowd so badly, you lose sight of whats real and whats fantasy.""Surely todays teenagers know that vampires are fantasy," Tamara said."Possibly. But remember, Vampyres are not romantic. Vampyres are dead. They are walking reminders of tragedy. Loving one is necrophilia. And wanting to be one is the first step on the road to catastrophe." - Author: Abramelin Keldor

Quotes About Dune Water

"I went up above the quay past the steps to the hotel. I saw a man through the window with a beer in his hand, and another man with a basket full of eggs. I was feeling heavy now, and tired, and I stood there leaning backwards with my hands crossed behind my back at the end of the breakwater before I walked on to the beach on the other side and some way along on the hard-frozen white sand. It had started to blow a bit, and it was still cold with no snow, so I took off my scarf and tied it round my head and ears and sat down in the shelter of a dune and blew into my hands to warm them before I lit a cigarette. Poker ran along the edge of the water with a seagulls wing in his mouth, and I was so young then, and I remember thinking: Im twenty-three years old, there is nothing left in life. Only the rest." - Author: Per Petterson

Quotes About Acadian

"Thus dwelt together in love these simple Acadian farmers,—   Dwelt in the love of God and of man. Alike were they free from   Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics.   Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows;   But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of the owners;   There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance." - Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
