Quotes About Love That Never Happened

"Boo-Boo Pennyroyal did not like her male and female slaves to mingle. In the operas that she adored, young people brought together in tragic circumstances were forever falling in love with each other and then throwing themselves off things (cliffs, mostly, but sometimes battlements, or rooftops, or the brinks of volcanoes). Boo-Boo was fond of her slaves, and it pained her to think of them plummeting in pairs off the edges of Cloud 9, so she nipped all tragic love affairs firmly in the bud by forbidding the girls and boys to speak to one another. Of course, young people being what they were, girls sometimes fell in love with other girls, or boys with boys, but that never happened in the operas, so Boo-Boo didnt notice." - Author: Philip Reeve

Quotes About Praying For Someone

"You might tell me that you have been engaging in some deep questioning and theological rethinking.1 You can no longer live with the faith you inherited from your parents or constructed earlier in your life. As you sort through your dogma and doctrine, youve found yourself praying less, less thrilled about worship, scripture, or church attendance. Youve been so focused on sorting and purging your theological theories that youve lost track of the spiritual practices that sustain an actual relationship with God. You may even wonder if such a thing is possible for someone like you." - Author: Brian D. McLaren

Rev 5:13).Love is the only force capable of changing the heart of the human person and of all humanity, by making fruitful the relations between men and women, between rich and poor, between cultures and civilizations.
