Jon Foreman Quotes

"Greed, envy, sloth, pride and gluttony: these are not vices anymore. No, these are marketing tools. Lust is our way of life. Envy is just a nudge towards another sale. Even in our relationships we consume each other, each of us looking for what we can get out of the other. Our appetites are often satisfied at the expense of those around us. In a dog-eat-dog world we lose part of our humanity."

Quotes About Making Sacrifices

"Im not a Wiccan. Im not big on churches of any kind, despite the fact that Ive spoken, face-to-face, with an archangel of the Almighty.But there were some things I believed in. Some things I had faith in. And faith isnt about perfect attendance to services, or how much money you put on the little plate. It isnt about going skyclad to the Holy Rites, or meditating each day upon the divine.Faith is about what you do. Its about aspiring to be better and nobler and kinder than you are. Its about making sacrifices for the good of others--even when theres not going to be anyone telling you what a hero you are.Faith is a power of its own, and one even more elusive and difficult to define than magic." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Reading Books Twice

"[E]very man hath liberty to write, but few ability. Heretofore learning was graced by judicious scholars, but now noble sciences are vilified by base and illiterate scribblers, that either write for vain-glory, need, to get money, or as Parasites to flatter and collogue with some great men, they put out trifles, rubbish and trash. Among so many thousand Authors you shall scarce find one by reading of whom you shall be any whit better, but rather much worse; by which he is rather infected than any way perfected…What a catalogue of new books this year, all his age (I say) have our Frankfurt Marts, our domestic Marts, brought out. Twice a year we stretch out wits out and set them to sale; after great toil we attain nothing…What a glut of books! Who can read them? As already, we shall have a vast Chaos and confusion of Books, we are oppressed with them, our eyes ache with reading, our fingers with turning. For my part I am one of the number—one of the many—I do not deny it..." - Author: Robert Burton
