Paul Goble Quotes

"We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and the winding streams with tangled growth, as wild. Only to the white man was nature a wilderness and only to him was the land infested with wild animals and savage people. To us it was home. Earth was beautiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery." - Chief Standing River of the Lakota"

Sarah Vowell Assassination Vacation Quotes

"...I am not a bed-and breakfast person. I understand why other people would want to stay in B&Bs. Theyre pretty. Theyre personal. Theyre "quaint," a polite way of saying "no TV." They are "romantic," i.e., every object large enough for a flower to be printed on it is going to have a flower printed on it. Theyre "cozy," meaning that a guest has to keep her belongings on the floor because every conceivable flat surface is covered in knickknacks, except for the one knickknack she longs for, a remote control."

Jake Owen Quotes

"I look at my little girl and I wonder what shes going to be and what shes going to do and what is it that leads girls certain directions in life. I think a lot of that goes back to what kind of father they had, and so it makes me want to be the best dad I can possibly be."

Quotes About Christian Gratefulness

"How often, in our Christian lives, do we settle for a "snack"--something quick--instead of feasting on all we have in Jesus? Are we looking into the Word, considering all we have been given, gazing at the cross in gratefulness? Jesus didnt just set us free from bondage-- He gave us an inheritance. He didnt simply pay our debt-- He gave us His bank account of righteousness. He didnt merely release us from Satans grip--He asked us to be His bride. He takes us from dungeon to palace. Ashes to beauty. Rejected to cherished. Starving to feasting." - Author: Grace Mally

He grins."And when Im with you, I dont want to be anywhere else or with anyone else." - Author: Cindy C. Bennett

Quotes About Abused Men

"Often men who have been emotionally neglected and abused as children by dominating mothers bond with assertive women, only to have their childhood feelings of being engulfed surface. While they could not smash their mommy and still receive love, they find that they can engage in intimate violence with partners who respond to their acting out by trying harder to connect with them emotionally, hoping that the love offered in the present will heal the wounds of the past. If only one party in the relationship is working to create love, to create the space of emotional connection, the dominator model remains in place and the relationship just becomes a site for continuous power struggle." - Author: Bell Hooks
