"When the heart stops oozing blood & the outpouring is clear as water (so to speak) then you know youve turned the corner & will be well.When you look inward & all pathwaysare no longer dark but clearly lighted& shine like transparent drinking strawsthen you know youll find your way alone.When the gray morning has nothing to do with you & doesnt weigh you downlike a heavy blanket, then you knowthat moving will be easy again and your body will flow through timelike the river it really is, smooth & deep.no rocks, no shallows to smash or catch you,keep you from moving on.When the heart slowsto its normal rhythm and the beautyof birdsong at dawn doesnt make you cry because you are alone listening, then you know that everything has happened that is going to for now, and you can get on withyour life & everything about it that was yours alone and always finer thananyone could ever imagine it would bewithout him."

Quotes About Building The Church

"Martin Luther called the church building the "Mundhaus" (lit. "mouth house" or "speech house") because he believed that the Graeco-Roman "pagan lecture" of the sophist entertainers who took over the Catholic church should be the focus of "the service". Sermons might have been helpful in the later Middle Ages when even many Catholic priests couldnt read. However, modern research has repeatedly proven that lecturing is the worst possible way to educate others because its so boring. Might traditional, so-called-inspired preaching still be the best way to communicate Gods Word?" ~ © gfp 42™" - Author: Gary Patton

Quotes About Mecca

"This was the Mecca of the American Dream, the world that everyone wanted. A world of sleek young women (allied with Slenderella to be so) in shorts and halters, driving 400-horsepower station wagons to air-conditioned, music-serenaded supermarkets of baby-sitter corporations and culture condensed into Great Books discussion groups. A life of barbecues by the swimming pool and drive in movies open all year. It didt appeal to me. Fuck health insurance plans and life insurance. They wanted to live without leaving the womb. It made me more alive to play a game without rules against society, and I was prepared to play it to the end. A tremor almost sexual passed through me as I anticipated the comming robbery." - Author: Edward Bunker

Quotes About Separation Of Powers

"Many, if not most, of the difficulties we experience in dealing with government agencies arise from the agencies being part of a fragmented and open political system…The central feature of the American constitutional system—the separation of powers—exacerbates many of these problems.

Those who designed these arrangements always assumed that the federal government would exercise few and limited powers." - Author: James Q. Wilson

In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature." - Author: Sigmund Freud

Quotes About Rivers Mark Twain

"This myth hed made out of intricate movements and imagination, out of moonlight and love, out of prayers older than Adam, and gray cliffs and crimson shadows, laments and rivers of martyrs - what had it come to at last? When the waves receded, the shores of Time would spread out there clean, empty, shining with infinite grains of memory and little else." - Author: Frank Herbert
