[Unruly Beings Are As Unlimited As SpaceThey Cannot Possibly All Be Overcome,But If I Overcome Thoughts Of Anger AloneThis Will Be Equivalent To Vanquishing All Foes.Where Would I Possibly Find Enough LeatherWith Which To Cover The Surface Of The Earth?But (wearing) Leather Just On The Soles Of My ShoesIs Equivalent To Covering The Earth With It.Likewise It Is Not Possible For MeTo Restrain The External Course Of Things;But Should I Restrain This Mind Of MineWhat Would Be The Need To Restrain All Else?]

Kimberly Giles Quotes

"Every day is a grand adventure into the great unknown and you cannot know what lies around the next corner. So, standing in this place, with the unknown before you, you have only two choices: you can live in trust (believing you are safe and that good things are coming) or you can live in fear (scared of the future and focused on you). Your choice will not change whats around that next corner, it will be what its meant to be, but it will have a big impact on the way you feel today. Do you want to experience today in fear, focused on yourself? Or do you want to experience trust and focus on love? Its up to you."

Quotes About Invincible

"Violators cannot live with the truth: survivors cannot live without it. There are those who still, once again, are poised to invalidate and deny us. If we dont assert our truth, it may again be relegated to fantasy. But the truth wont go away. It will keep surfacing until it is recognized. Truth will outlast any campaigns mounted against it, no matter how mighty, clever, or long. It is invincible. Its only a matter of which generation is willing to face it and, in so doing, protect future generations from ritual abuse." - Author: Chrystine Oksana

Quotes About Cute Couples

"The living cell is the most complex system of its size known to mankind. Its host of specialized molecules, many found nowhere else but within living material, are themselves already enormously complex. They execute a dance of exquisite fidelity, orchestrated with breathtaking precision. Vastly more elaborate than the most complicated ballet, the dance of life encompasses countless molecular performers in synergetic coordination. Yet this is a dance with no sign of a choreographer. No intelligent supervisor, no mystic force, no conscious controlling agency swings the molecules into place at the right time, chooses the appropriate players, closes the links, uncouples the partners, moves them on. The dance of life is spontaneous, self-sustaining, and self-creating." - Author: Paul Davies

Quotes About Phyllis

"I nodded, appreciating the wisdom of her words.‘Yellow is the colour of early spring, she said, ‘just look at your garden! She gestured towards the borders, which were full of primulas, crocuses and daffodils. ‘The most cheerful of colours, she continued, ‘almost reflective in its nature and it is of course the colour of the mind.‘Thats why we surround ourselves with it! laughed Phyllis, ‘in the hope that its properties will rub off.‘Nonsense dear, said Mrs Darley dismissively, ‘Yellow light simply encourages us to think more positively. It lifts our spirits and raises our self-esteem in time for summer.I immediately made a mental note to surround myself with the colour of the season and, like Phyllis, hoped that some of its properties would rub off on me." - Author: Carole Carlton

Quotes About Eagles And God

"Many people often ask God for a sign, believing that the sign will be smooth sailing, perfect windspeed, moderate temperatures... so when the winds dance and the waves sing and the temperatures confuse, they think that Gods not there anymore. They believe that God is saying, "Watch out! Dont go there!" But the thing is, when something is good, its not smooth sailing and perfect windspeed and moderate temperatures that are the signs to look out for! When something is good, it has mountain ranges, precipices, cliffs, eagles, tombstones covered in ivy and lily of the valley, mountain goats and a wind so close to the mouth of God that it shakes your flesh to its very core! So when they begin to hop on the precipices and hear the eagles call— they think God isnt there! They think God is saying "Watch out!" They too often fail to traverse the ivy-encrusted tombstones, to tremble and quiver in beauty under Gods breath. Dont run away." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
