David Holdsworth Quotes

"Jesus is a descendant of David, the beloved of God. Jesus is the only begotten Son of God who was born into this world and died and rose again. Saint John calls him the Word and the Light. When he died, he did so as atonement for our sins, and when he rose, he did so to defeat the power and curse of death and hell on this once-holy world. Do you believe in him?"

Quotes About January Weather

"This because it is never really very cold in England. It is drizzly, and the wind will blow; hail happens, and there is a breed of Tuesday in January in which time creeps and no light comes and the air is full of water and nobody really loves anybody, but still a decent jumper and a waxen jacket lined with wool is sufficient for every weather Englands got to give." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Reading To Babies

"Reading Aloud to My Father I chose the book haphazardfrom the shelf, but with Nabokovs firstsentence I knew it wasnt the thingto read to a dying man:The cradle rocks above an abyss, it began,and common sense tells us that our existenceis but a brief crack of lightbetween two eternities of darkness.The words disturbed both of us immediately,and I stopped. With music it was the same --Chopins Piano Concerto — he asked meto turn it off. He ceased eating, and dranklittle, while the tumors briskly appropriatedwhat was left of him.But to return to the cradle rocking. I thinkNabokov had it wrong. This is the abyss.Thats why babies howl at birth,and why the dying so often reachfor something only they can apprehend.At the end they dont want their handsto be under the covers, and if you should putyour hand on theirs in a tentative gestureof solidarity, theyll pull the hand free;and you must honor that desire,and let them pull it free." - Author: Jane Kenyon

Quotes About Wilhelm Ii

"Wars, wars, wars: reading up on the region I came across one moment when quintessential Englishness had in fact intersected with this darkling plain. In 1906 Winston Churchill, then the minister responsible for British colonies, had been honored by an invitation from Kaiser Wilhelm II to attend the annual maneuvers of the Imperial German Army, held at Breslau. The Kaiser was resplendent in the uniform of the White Silesian Cuirassiers and his massed and regimented infantry...reminded one more of great Atlantic rollers than human formations. Clouds of cavalry, avalanches of field-guns and—at that time a novelty—squadrons of motor-cars (private and military) completed the array. For five hours the immense defilade continued. Yet this was only a twentieth of the armed strength of the regular German Army before mobilization.Strange to find Winston Churchill and Sylvia Plath both choosing the word roller, in both its juggernaut and wavelike declensions, for that scene." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Her cooking tastes to him of things he never had: candlelight, saltwater, health fads, wealth, class." - Author: John Updike

Quotes About Being Interrupted

"Our time was most delightfully spent, in mutual Protestations of Freindship, and in vows of unalterable Love, in which we were secure from being interrupted, by intruding and disagreeable Visistors, as Augustus and Sophia had on their first Entrance in the Neighbourhood, taken due care to inform the surrounding Families, that as their happiness centered wholly in themselves, they wished for no other society." - Author: Jane Austen
