[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?]

Quotes About Loyalty And Friendship

"I am not a believer in love at first sight. For love, in its truest form, is not the thingof starry-eyed or star-crossed lovers, it is far more organic, requiring nurturing and timeto fully bloom, and, as such, seen best not in its callow youth but in its wrinkled maturity.Like all living things, love, too, struggles against hardship, and in the process shedsits fatuous skin to expose one composed of more than just a storm of emotion–one of loyaltyand divine friendship. Agape. And though it may be temporarily blinded by adversity,it never gives in or up, holding tight to lofty ideals that transcend this earth andtime–while its counterfeit simply concludes it was mistaken and quickly runs off tofind the next real thing." - Author: Richard Paul Evans

Quotes About Unspeakable Joy

"I recalled that inward sensation I had experienced: for I could recall it, with all its unspeakable strangeness. I recalled the voice I had heard; again I questioned whence it came, as vainly as before: it seemed in ME--not in the external world. I asked was it a mere nervous impression--a delusion? I could not conceive or believe: it was more like an inspiration. The wondrous shock of feeling had come like the earthquake which shook the foundations of Paul and Silass prison; it had opened the doors of the souls cell and loosed its bands--it had wakened it out of its sleep, whence it sprang trembling, listening, aghast; then vibrated thrice a cry on my startled ear, and in my quaking heart and through my spirit, which neither feared nor shook, but exulted as if in joy over the success of one effort it had been privileged to make, independent of the cumbrous body." - Author: Charlotte Brontë
