Diane M Komp Pediatric Oncologist Quotes

"The stories in this book link an ancient story with the childrens stories. Rather than medical case reports based on certainty of what scientists currently understand, they are simply an attempt to be faithful to what I have heard. In this sense, they continue Jesus commissioned work of revealing that there is a realm that we cannot yet fully understand. The greatest gift in my life has been in linking the ancient story and the childrens stories to my own...As I sit by the beds of these children, I have seen Gods love made manifest in this descending way. I have seen Jesus Christ come again and again and again to bring peace and to link the childrens stories with His own."

Shelley Berkley Quotes

"I wont stop fighting to give Nevadans access to affordable health care just because my husband is a doctor, just like I wont stop standing up for veterans because my father served in World War II."

JL Flores Quotes

"La diosa era alta, de cabellos negros y ojos rasgados. Vestía de noche, con estrellas sobre su traje. Cada una contenía un mundo, miles de historias colgaban de ellas, miles de suspiros y todos aquellos regalos que había recibido de los mortales durante siglos. Estábamos de regreso en el origen."

Southey Robert Quotes

"Literature cannot be the business of a womans life, and it ought not to be.(Southeys reply to Charlotte Bronte)"

JR Vincent Quotes

"History is about winners, not about losers. History is about assessing distortions, not copying out truths. History has much to say about the way the powerful handle power, for power engenders records. History is about evidence, and evidence flagrantly distorts. There is a bias between winners and losers. History is hopeless on love, but excellent on hatred. Such a state of things may not please at all, but then history was never meant to please. One-sidedness lies at the heart of historical knowledge."

Amalie Howard Quotes

"Forgiveness is a choice. You control how you respond to something or someone. You cant change things that happened in the past, but you can decide how you let them affect you."

Hannu Rajaniemi Quotes

"What is it about it, anyway? Stealing. ‘Its … Its an instinct, I want to say. ... Its art. But she would not understand, so I merely repeat the old joke. ‘Its about respecting other peoples property. I make it my property so that I can properly respect it."

Dielle Ciesco Quotes

"After I nodded, she continued. "We can no longer express with words our emotional states, our revelations, our transformations. Words fail. We are in the very beginning stages of what might take years or even decades of transition. The human race is developing a Universal Language. The practices that will assist humanity—and assist you—in reaching this higher communication will include all the things Ill share with you: vocal exploration, meditation, and energetic practices such as chi gong and yoga. Through these techniques, you are going to completely overhaul your nervous system and your energetic makeup to allow the emergence of this language within you."

Paul Feval Quotes

"Le vin est la gaieté, dit-on ; comment cet océan de vin qui submerge la commune de Bercy négaye-t-il pas un peu ces navrants paysages ? Tout Bacchus est là ; Bacchus, chanté avec tant de constance par nos poètes ébriolants. Bacchus ne peut-il rasséréner ces horizons en deuil ? ou faut-il croire que Bacchus lui-même, ennemi de leau, est incommodé par le voisinage de la rivière ?"

Maud Adams Quotes

"I never really wanted to be a model. But when the opportunity came, I grabbed it."

Quotes About Android Os

"Dun tratto gli androidi prodotti dalla Hoffman & Sons parevano più umani degli umani stessi, si mescolavano nel grigio di Londra, tra le carrozze a scoppio e il vapore denso, lasciando in mostra protesi meccaniche come le persone esibivano tratti animali. E non era finita lì, molta gente stava ancora mutando, spariva dalla circolazione per qualche tempo e poi saltava fuori con un aspetto sorprendente. Cominciai a chiedermi quando sarebbe venuto il mio turno, quale aspetto avrei preso e quanto avrebbe condizionato le nostre vite." - Author: Letizia Loi

Quotes About Omnipotence

"If love could force my own thoughts over the edge of the world and out of time, then could I not see how even divine omnipotence might by the force of its own love be swayed down to the world? ...how it might, because it could know its own creatures only by compassion, put on mortal flesh, become a man, and walk among us, assume our nature and our fate, suffer our faults and our death?" - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Big And Little Sisters

"Lola writes in her notebook: Leaf-fleas are even worse. Someone said, They dont bite people, because people dont have leaves. Lola writes, When the sun is beating down, they bite everything, even the wind. And we all have leaves. Leaves fall off when you stop growing, because childhood is all gone. And they grow back when you shrivel up, because love is all gone. Leaves spring up at will, writes Lola, just like tall grass. Two or three children in the village dont have any leaves, and those have a big childhood. A child like that is an only child, because it has a father and a mother who have been to school. The leaf-fleas turn older children into younger ones - a four-year-old into a three-year-old, a three-year-old into a one-year-old. Even a six-months-old, writes Lola, and even a newborn. And the more little brothers and sisters the leaf-fleas make, the smaller the childhood becomes." - Author: Herta Müller

Quotes About 1st Day Of December

"The truth of life is that every year we get farther away from the essence that is born within us. We get shouldered with burdens, some of them good, some of them not so good. Things happen to us. Loved ones die. People get in wrecks and get crippled. People lose their way, for one reason or another. Its not hard to do, in this world of crazy mazes. Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You dont know its happening until one day you feel youve lost something but youre not sure what it is. Its like smiling at a pretty girl and she calls you sir. It just happens." - Author: Robert R. McCammon
