Megan Sweeney Quotes

"[Solitary confinement] is terrible. That is terrible. Youre in a grave. You cant do anything. Everythings brought to you and youre in a room all day, except to come out of the showers. So when I would come out, I would entertain myself by singing, doing little mock concerts. And then when I was in the room, I would develop a routine. Like I have a lot of hair under here, so I would take my hair down and take all day to braid it on purpose. Stretch the hours out. Then I might write. And I would clean the floor. And I would look out the window. And then Id devote a whole day to just reading. I was Christian then, trying to be. So I would read the whole Bible. I would break it down into sections. Youre in a grave and youre trying to live. Thats how to best describe it: trying to live in a grave. Youre trying to live cause youre not dead yet, but nobody hears you when you call out, Hey, Im alive!"

Quotes About Striving Harder

"When you believe without knowing you believe that you are damaged at your core, you also believe that you need to hide that damage for anyone to love you. You walk around ashamed of being yourself. You try hard to make up for the way you look, walk, feel. Decisions are agonizing because if you, the person who makes the decision, is damaged, then how can you trust what you decide? You doubt your own impulses so you become masterful at looking outside yourself for comfort. You become an expert at finding experts and programs, at striving and trying hard and then harder to change yourself, but this process only reaffirms what you already believe about yourself -- that your needs and choices cannot be trusted, and left to your own devices you are out of control (p.82-83)" - Author: Geneen Roth

Quotes About Pulpit

"You are all seen by a God who is proud of those day to day things you do. Ministry doesnt always mean speaking at a pulpit often it comes dressed as everyday work.

God can and will use you in mighty ways through your day to day normal routine." - Author: Rachel Hamilton

Quotes About Happy Life Without Him

"If a man prefers nothing I can give him nothing. But nearly all people I have ever met in this western society in which I live would agree to the general proposition that we need this life of practical romance; the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome. We need to be happy in this wonderland without once being merely comfortable. It is this achievement of my creed that I shall chiefly pursue in these pages." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

And at night, if you were not diving, the compressors exhaust fumes, its lethal monoxides, barking and blattering our darkened boats position for anyone to hear. But a shift of wind might gently lay its hand on a cheek and turn your head like a weathervane, pointing your nostrils into the smell of unseen land: forest and rot and copra, jasmine, mimosa and ylang-ylang. And you may have thought of the strangeness of it, sitting there in nights scented cocoon, propped up by nails and timber in the middle of the water while men you knew like brothers worked away in the fish mines far beneath the boat, their dim torchlight opening up fugitive seams and corridors. Their wooden goggles and floating hair." - Author: James Hamilton Paterson

Quotes About Pompadour

"They could not help loving anything that made them laugh. The Lisbon earthquake was "embarrassing to the physicists and humiliating to theologians" (Barbier). It robbed Voltaire of his optimism. In the huge waves which engulfed the town, in the chasms which opened underneath it, in volcanic flames which raged for days in the outskirts, some 50,000 people perished. But to the courtiers of Louis XV it was an enormous joke. M. de Baschi, Madame de Pompadours brother-in-law, was French Ambassador there at the time. He saw the Spanish Ambassador killed by the arms of Spain, which toppled onto his head from the portico of his embassy; Baschi then dashed into the house and rescued his colleagues little boy whom he took, with his own family, to the country. When he got back to Versailles he kept the whole Court in roars of laughter for a week with his account of it all. "Have you heard Baschi on the earthquake?" - Author: Nancy Mitford
