James Arminius Quotes

"To explain the matter I will employ a simile, which yet, I confess is very dissimilar; but its dissimilitude is greatly in favour of my sentiments. A rich man bestows, on a poor and famishing beggar, alms by which he may be able to maintain himself and his family. Does it cease to be a pure gift, because the beggar extends his hand to receive it? Can it be said with propriety, that the alms depended partly on THE LIBERALITY of the Donor, and partly on THE LIBERTY of the Receiver, though the latter would not have possessed the alms unless he had received it by stretching out his hand? Can it be correctly said, BECAUSE THE BEGGAR IS ALWAYS PREPARED TO RECEIVE, that he can have the alms, or not have it, just as he pleases? If these assertions cannot be truly made about a beggar who receives alms, how much less can they be made about the gift of faith, for the receiving of which far more acts of Divine Grace are required!"

Mark Hanna Quotes

Quotes About Equivocation

"The many meanings of evolution are frequently exploited by Darwinists to distract their critics. Eugenie Scott recommends: Define evolution as an issue of the history of the planet: as the way we try to understand change through time. The present is different from the past. Evolution happened, there is no debate within science as to whether it happened, and so on... I have used this approach at the college level. Of course, no college student—indeed, no grade-school dropout— doubts that the present is different from the past. Once Scott gets them nodding in agreement, she gradually introduces them to The Big Idea that all species—including monkeys and humans—are related through descent from a common ancestor... This tactic is called equivocation—changing the meaning of a term in the middle of an argument." - Author: Jonathan Wells

Quotes About Pennant

"His conviction of having no purpose in life other than to act as a distillation of poison was part of the ego of an eighteen-year-old. He had resolved that his beautiful white hands would never be soiled or calloused. He wanted to be like a pennant, dependent on each gusting wind. The only thing that seemed valid to him was to live for the emotions--gratuitous and unstable, dying only to quicken again, dwindling and flaring without direction or purpose." - Author: Yukio Mishima
