Quotes About Blood And Love

"Most of us love a non-self, or something extrinsic and apart from our inner life; but a mothers love during the time she is a flesh-and-blood ciborium is not for a non-self but for one that is her very self, a perfect example of charity and love which hardly perceives a separation. Motherhood then becomes a kind of priesthood. She brings God to man by preparing the flesh in which the soul will be implanted; she brings man to God in offering the child back again to the Creator." - Author: Fulton J. Sheen

Quotes About Retiring From Work

"Master Stanley used to tell me that what I was doing was nowhere near as important as the place within myself from where I was doing it. For example, a person could be teaching others out of a selfless motive, or out of a desire for power or glory: the former had a positive impact on the world, whereas the latter had a negative impact, even though the same identical teaching may have been imparted. "Its the spirit thats important," he would say. "Its even more important than the act. Going to work in a gas station and providing for your family out of love is more important than creating a mighty religious work out of a desire for glory or power." - Author: Thom Hartmann

If something like that happens to someone like me, you start tohave a little faith in something bigger. I dont know if I believe in magic or miracles all the time. But I believe in you, Detective Walker. I believe in you." - Author: C.E. Murphy

Quotes About Brett Sun Also Rises

"I feel strangely free at such times. To behave properly is to be always courteous, always clever, and subtle and elegant. But now, when I am so alone, I do not have to be any of these things. For this moment, I am wholly myself, unshaped by the needs of others, by their dreams or expectations or sensibilities. But I am also lonely. With no one to shape me, who stands here, watching the moon, or the stars, or the clouds?" - Author: Kij Johnson
