Emili Teixidor Quotes

"I així, sense voler-ho, el seu excés damor em va encomanar un rebuig per qualsevol sentiment i fins i tot una por als acostaments emotius i vibrants cap a una altra persona.

Quotes About Illness And Hope

"The thing I hated while reading this book, it turns out, was me. Bad things happen, and shoulders are shrugged. The most serious of events are blended with the strange.

Quotes About Scarlatta

"Da anni e anni, come una spettatrice, ella aveva guardato alle leggi degli uomini, alle istituzioni dei legislatori e del clero, con un compiuto distacco: come gli indiani potevano guardare alla toga, alla galera, al focolare, alla chiesa. Il suo destino e le sue sventure lavevano resa libera. La lettera scarlatta era il suo passaporto per talune regioni, nelle quali nessuna altra donna avrebbe osato avventurarsi. Vergogna, disperazione, solitudine: ecco i maestri che avevano rinvigorito la sua forza istintiva sebbene con insegnamenti molto difettosi." - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

"In our natural state we dislike dealing with God alone. Through our natural alienation from God we shrink from Him, and from eternal realities. This cleaves to us more or less, even after our regeneration. Hence it is, that more or less, even as believers, we have the same shrinking from standing with God alone,--from depending upon Him alone,--from looking to Him alone:--and yet this is the very position in which we ought to be, if we wish our faith to be strengthened. The more I am in a position to be tried in faith with reference to my body, my family, my service for the Lord, my business, etc., the more shall I have opportunity of seeing Gods help and deliverance." - Author: George Mueller
