[Though I Myself Am An Atheist, I Openly Profess Religion In The Sense Just Mentioned, That Is, A Nature Religion. I Hate The Idealism That Wrenches Man Out Of Nature; I Am Not Ashamed Of My Dependency On Nature; I Openly Confess That The Workings Of Nature Affect Not Only My Surface, My Skin, My Body, But Also My Core, My Innermost Being, That The Air I Breathe In Bright Weather Has A Salutary Effect Not Only On My Lungs But Also On My Mind, That The Light Of The Sun Illumines Not Only My Eyes But Also My Spirit And My Heart. And I Do Not, Like A Christian, Believe That Such Dependency Is Contrary To My True Being Or Hope To Be Delivered From It. I Know Further That I Am A Finite Moral Being, That I Shall One Day Cease To Be. But I Find This Very Natural And Am Therefore Perfectly Reconciled To The Thought.]

Quotes About Cognitive Dissonance

"The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more." - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Quotes About The New Covenant

"All of our faith and practice arise out of the drama of Scripture, the "big story" that traces the plot of history from creation to consummation, with Christ as its Alpha and Omega, beginning and end. And out of the throbbing verbs of this unfolding drama God reveals stable nouns — doctrines. From what God does in history we are taught certain things about who he is and what it means to be created in his image, fallen, and redeemed, renewed, and glorified in union with Christ. As the Father creates his church, in his Son and by his Spirit, we come to realize what this covenant community is and what it means to belong to it; what kind of future is promised to us in Christ, and how we are to live here and now in the light of it all. The drama and the doctrine provoke us to praise and worship — doxology — and together these three coordinates give us a new way of living in the world as disciples." - Author: Michael S. Horton

Quotes About Younger Brother

"Halt regarded him. He loved Horace like a younger brother. Even like a second son, after Will. He admired his skill with a sword and his courage in battle. But sometimes, just sometimes, he felt an overwhelming desire to ram the young warriors head against a convenient tree."You have no sense of drama or symbolism, do you?" he asked."Huh?" replied Horace, not quite understanding. Halt looked around for a convenient tree. Luckily for Horace, there were none in sight." - Author: John Flanagan

Quotes About Passerby

"Smimasen," Alyss said repeatedly as they brushed against passerby. "What does that mean?" Will asked as they reached a stretch of street bare of any other pedestrians. He was impressed by Alysss grasp of the local language. "It means pardon me," Alyss replied, but then a shadow of doubt crossed her face. "At least, I hope it does. Maybe Im saying you have the manners of a fat, rancid sow." - Author: John Flanagan

Quotes About Communicating With Others

"We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with our concepts of whos right and whos wrong. We do that with the people who are closest to us and we do it with political systems, with all kinds of things that we dont like about our associates or our society. It is a very common, ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better. Blame others....Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect what is soft and open and tender in yourself. Rather than own that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground." - Author: Pema Chödrön

Quotes About Gwen

"Dagmar turned when she felt a tug on her sleeve, a human male standing next to her. "Yes?""Yeah, how much for the blonde?"Dagmar blinked, glanced back at Gwenvael and the three girls before asking, "Pardon?""The blonde. How much for the blonde? The bigger one. Just for an hour or so?"Of course. Dagmar would never be one of the whores … she must be selling the whores."Five coppers for an hour," she replied. "Any more than that and itll cost you.""An hour will do." He reached into his pocket and handed her five copper pieces. She dropped them into her satchel, tapped Gwenvael on the shoulder, and said, "Hes bought you for an hour of sex. Enjoy." - Author: G.A. Aiken

Quotes About Tunne

"I am brave," Will said..."Yes, you are," Magnus said, and kissed him. It wasnt the most dramatic kiss, but Will failed his free arm as if a bee had landed on him; Magnus had to hope Camille would assume this was passion. When they broke apart, Will looked stunned. So did Camille, for that matter....Will swung sideways...He dashed across the room, retrieved it, and tucked it into Magnuss waistcoat pocket. Then, with a wink at Camille that, Magnus thought, God alone knew how she would interpret, he sauntered out of the room." - Author: Cassandra Clare
