[The Sanscrit Language, Whatever Be Its Antiquity, Is Of A Wonderful Structure; More Perfect Than The Greek, More Copious Than The Latin, And More Exquisitely Refined Than Either, Yet Bearing To Both Of Them A Stronger Affinity, Both In The Roots Of Verbs And The Forms Of Grammar, Than Could Possibly Have Been Produced By Accident; So Strong Indeed, That No Philologer Could Examine Them All Three, Without Believing Them To Have Sprung From Some Common Source, Which, Perhaps, No Longer Exists; There Is A Similar Reason, Though Not Quite So Forcible, For Supposing That Both The Gothic And The Celtic, Though Blended With A Very Different Idiom, Had The Same Origin With The Sanscrit; And The Old Persian Might Be Added To The Same Family.]

Todd Burpo Quotes

"I smoothed Coltons blanket across his chest and tucked him in snug theway he liked—and for the first time since he started talking about heaven, Iintentionally tried to trip him up. "I remember you saying you stayed withPop," I said. "So when it got dark and you went home with Pop, what didyou two do?"Suddenly serious, Colton scowled at me. "It doesnt get dark in heaven,Dad! Who told you that?"I held my ground. "What do you mean it doesnt get dark?""God and Jesus light up heaven. It never gets dark. Its always bright."The joke was on me. Not only had Colton not fallen for the "when it getsdark in heaven" trick, but he could tell me why it didnt get dark: "The citydoes not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God givesit light, and the Lamb is its lamp."

Quotes About Stupid Conversations

"Im never really comfortable at parties. Maybe Im just not the partying type....I think its because Im never sure what to do with myself.I mean, therere drinks, but I dont like being drunk.... Theres music, but I never really learned to dance to anything that involved an electric guitar. There are people to talk to...but once you put all the stupid things I do aside, Im really not that interesting. I like reading, staying home, going on walks with my dog.... Who wants to hear about that? Especially when I would have to scream it over music to which no one dances.So Im there but not drinking, listening to music but not dancing, and trying to have conversations with near-strangers about anything other than my own stupid life.... Leads to a lot of awkward pauses. And then I start wondering why I showed up in the first place."-- Cold Days (The Dresden Files Book 14), pg. 33" - Author: Jim Butcher
