[We In The Revivalist Tradition Have Viewed Grace Only In Terms Of Privatized, Individualized Spirituality. Give People Enough Jesus To Save Their Souls, Move Them To An Emotional Decision, Help Them Get Their Hearts Right And Acquire A More Responsible Morality, And That Will Be Enough. But That Is Not Enough. It Is Not Even The Beginning Of Enough. God Was Concerned About Those Living In Dire Suffering Long Before Bono, Angelina Jolie, Or George Clooney Turned Into Social Activists.]

Gao Xingjian Quotes

"Its in literature that true life can be found. Its under the mask of fiction that you can tell the truth."

Camilo Gomes Jr Quotes

"NOTHING MAKES SENSE. Do not look for any sense in things. It is not there. It is you who ascribe it to what you live or get to know. A defeat or a victory is neither a message from the gods nor a trick of fate. Neither means anything — and, if they seem to, it is but an interpretation you yourself make of them —, inasmuch as things in themselves are only indifference and silence. So, do not waste your precious time in looking for signs everywhere around you. Try and interpret happenings, those which bleed and those which make you smile, as maturing experiences. Oh, yes, what is most important: live!"

Quotes About Fallen Kings

"But the helm of her secrecy had fallen from her, and her bright hair, released from its bonds, gleamed with pale gold upon her shoulders. Her eyes grey as the sea were hard and fell, and yet tears were on her cheek. A sword was in her hand, and she raised her shield against the horror of her enemys eyes.[…]Still she did not blench: maiden of the Rohirrim, child of kings, slender but as a steel-blade, fair yet terrible. A swift stroke she dealt, skilled and deadly. The outstretched neck she clove asunder, and the hewn head fell like a stone. Backward she sprang as the huge shape crashed to ruin, vast wings outspread, crumpled on the earth; and with its fall the shadow passed away. A light fell about her, and her hair shone in the sunrise." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Paver

"Bet kai jis grieždavo violončele, o violončelė būdavo liesa ir nusiminusi kaip vieniša raudona karvė rudens pievoje, Muzikantas pradėdavo raudonuoti. Ir taip išrausdavo, kad iš tolo atrodė, tarsi didžiulis graudus pomidoras sėdi scenoje ir stryku brauko sau skersai pilvo. Ir kai visi jau pradėdavo jo gailėtis ir gailėtis vienišos liūdnos karvės didžiulės pievos viduryje, staiga jis atmerkdavo savo oranžinę akį, ir žmonės pamatydavo, kaip ten, apanus rūko, anapus upės, pateko saulė, nušviečia žolę smaragdo šviesa ir paverčia liūdnąją karvę ugningu eržilu. Eržilas lekia prie upės, ir neįmanoma suprasti - ar dunda jo kanopos, ar plaka klausytojų širdys..." - Author: Sergey Kozlov

Quotes About Fireworks And Love

"Fireworks made of glass. An explosion of dew. Crescendo. Diminuendo. Silence.There are drugs that work the same, and while I am not suggesting that our founder purchased the glassworks to get more drops, it is clear that she had the seed planted, not once, but twice, and knew already the lovely contradictory nature of glass and she did not have to be told, on the day she saw the works at Darling Harbour, that glass is a thing in disguise, an actor, is not solid at all, but a liquid, that an old sheet of glass will not only take on a royal and purplish tinge but will reveal its true liquid nature by having grown fatter at the bottom and thinner at the top, and that even while it is as frail as the ice on a Parramatta puddle, it is stronger under compression than Sydney sandstone, that it is invisible, solid, in short, a joyous and paradoxical thing, as good a material as any to build a life from." - Author: Peter Carey

Quotes About Company Picnics

"A PICNIC IS NOT AN ADVENTURE! Excuse me, but at thirty-eight and over six foot, trying to sit cross-legged on the ground to eat a meal is a total adventure. Have you ever attempted to eat with a plastic knife and fork, off a paper plate, while balancing the plate on your knee? And in company? Thats an adventure. I tried to cut into my pork pie and the knife broke, then my Scotch egg rolled off the plate and into some mud. What does one do in that situation? Wipe off the mud, and eat it anyway? Risky. I peeled off the meaty outside and ate the boiled egg. Result. And, once, on the beach, I sat down with fish and chips (not strictly a picnic, but still hardcore al fresco eating) and a seagull swooped down and took the whole fish from my box! It was terrifying. So dont you go telling me that picnics arent an adventure, thanking you muchly." - Author: Miranda Hart

Quotes About Coral Color

"Quinces are ripe...when they are the yellow of canary wings in midflight. they are ripe when their scent teases you with the snap of green apples and the perfumed embrace of coral roses. but even then quinces remain a fruit, hard and obstinate--useless...until they are simmered, coddled for hours above a low, steady flame. add honey and water and watch their dry, bone-colored flesh soak-up the heat, coating itself in an opulent orange, not of the sunrises that you never see but of the insides of tree-ripened papayas, a color you can taste. to answer your question__love is not a bowl of quinces yellowing in a blue and white china bowl, seen but untouched__. ~The Book of Salt" - Author: Monique Truong
