Dennis Lambert Quotes

"Now the valley cried with anger, "Mount your horses draw your sword." And they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward. Now they stood beside the treasure, on the mountain dark and red. Turned the stone and looked beneath it. "Peace on earth" was all it said. Go ahead and hate your neighbor,go ahead and cheat a friend. Do it in the name of heaven, you can justify it in the end. There wont be any trumpets blowing come the judgment day. On the bloody morning after one tin soldier rides away."

Quotes About Actions And Reactions

"We learn that our spirit is not apart from us; it is a part of us. We gain awareness of the exact nature of what is right about us. Our fractured personalities come back together into an integrated whole. Integrity is the state of being fully integrated: Our actions, our thinking, our feelings, our ideals, and our values all match up. It takes a long time for a lot of us to get here, and longer still for us to feel like its real. More and more, we are able to bring our behavior into alignment with our values and beliefs rather than our feelings and reactions." - Author: Narcotics Anonymous
