Jennifer Perry Quotes

"With strange detachment, Naomis mind noticed nothing but the beauty of the jump. Air sliced along her body as it streamed straight as an arrow in its path of utmost precision.

She was wildly liberated like a bird, soaring through the sky with the chaotic freedom of a wild animal."

Sterling W Sill Quotes

"In order to keep our freedom, we must place out of bounds all those things that would enslave us. James says, "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (James 4:7.) Sometimes people bring disaster upon themselves when they fail to distinguish between freedom and irresponsibility, not recognizing that the right kind of freedom has limitations on it. For example, freedom of the press does not give anyone the license to commit libel against his neighbor. Freedom of the seas does not give anyone a pirates license to take the treasures of others, nor does it entitle anyone to sink ships or destroy lives. A very important part of liberty consists in understanding where freedom ends and license beings. . . .Actually, no one is ever given any right to do wrong."
