Teresa Morgan Quotes

"The claim at the heart of this book has been carefully researched by several generations of scholars and is orthodox in academic circles, if not beyond. Christians under the Roman Empire were neither constantly persecuted nor martyred in huge numbers for their faith. They were prosecuted from time to time for alleged sedition, holding illegal meetings or refusing to sacrifice to the emperor. They were, like other convicts, sometimes tortured and executed in horrible ways. They seem to have been regarded by many Romans with distaste as a particularly silly superstition. But Christian stories of thousands of individual and mass martyrdoms over centuries have at best a limited basis in historical fact, and in many cases are sheer fiction."

Quotes About Voss

"Não basta amar alguém. É preciso amar com coragem. É peciso amar de tal modo que nenhum ladrão, ou má intenção, ou lei, lei divina ou deste mundo, possa seja o que for contra esse amor. Não nos amámos com coragem...foi esse o mal. E a culpa é tua, porque a coragem dos homens é ridícula em matéria de amor. É trabalho vosso, o amor...Só nisso sois grandes. Foi aí que falhaste, e, contigo, falhou tudo o que poderiam ter sido as nossas obrigações, os deveres e sentido da vida. Não é verdade que os homens sejam responsáveis pelo seu amor. Deveis ser vós a amar heroicamente." - Author: Sándor Márai

Quotes About Having Grey Hair

"She had to think about the future, her mother said. Marriage. She was sixteen now. It was time. The word made her sick to her stomach. She watched the other girls her age, braiding flowers into their hair, pinching their cheeks, smiling shyly or picking up their skirts and dancing, showing off their knees for the boys. Competing over who would live with whom in which dark hovel, who would spend their lives plowing which burned out field, making which grey stew in which sad hearth, having her hair torn out by which man, dying of which plague or beating or wretched childbirth...and she thought shed rather die. Shed rather be dead." - Author: Kimberly Cutter
