Favorite Beecher Quotes

1. "Really, just looking around, you feel a twinge of pity for the poor souls who succeeded in getting past the Pearly Gates. One can't help but picture the lackluster VIP lounge in Heaven, a kind of nonalcoholic ice-cream social starring Harriet Beecher Stowe and Mahatma Gandhi. Hardly anyone's idea of a "with-it" social register."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
2. "—Bueno, ¿dónde se supone que está el corazón? —preguntó dicha parienta.¿Betty White? ¿Iba a por Betty White?Mis manos se levantaron por instinto para protegerla. Era muy frágil. Muyvulnerable. Y la señora Beecher quería clavarle un punzón para el hielo. De eso nada."
Author: Darynda Jones
3. "—Tienes que dejar de pensar como una humana —sugirió Angel.—No me estás ayudando. Busca a Reyes.—Estoy aquí —dijo Reyes desde un rincón—. Viendo cómo te patean el culo. Otravez.Su gruesa túnica negra ondulaba a mi alrededor, lo que no mejoraba en absoluto elsúbito balanceo del mundo. Sin duda se trataba del Reyes incorpóreo. Los Beecher no loveían.—Haz algo —le dije a Reyes cuando conseguí librarme de las manos de Dewey porsegunda vez.—¿Puedo romperle el cuello a la vieja?—No.—¿Y a él?Eso tuve que pensármelo."

4. "My office walls are covered with autographs of famous writers - it's what my children call my 'dead author wall.' I have signatures from Mark Twain, Earnest Hemingway, Jack London, Harriett Beecher Stowe, Pearl Buck, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, to name a few."
Author: Debbie Macomber
5. "Let the preacher tell the truth. Let him make audible the silence of the news of the world with the sound turned off so that in the silence we can hear the tragic truth of the Gospel, which is that the world where God is absent is a dark and echoing emptiness; and the comic truth of the Gospel, which is that it is into the depths of his absence that God makes himself present in such unlikely ways and to such unlikely people that old Sarah and Abraham and maybe when the time comes even Pilate and Job and Lear and Henry Ward Beecher and you and I laugh till the tears run down our cheeks. And finally let him preach this overwhelming of tragedy by comedy, of darkness by light, of the ordinary by the extraordinary, as the tale that is too good not to be true because to dismiss it as untrue is to dismiss along with it that catch of the breath, that beat and lifting of the heart near to or even accompanied by tears, which I believe is the deepest intuition of truth that we have."
Author: Frederick Buechner
6. "We are redeemed one man at a time. There is no family pass ticket or park hopping pass to life. One ticket — one at a time. Man doesn't vanquish hatred or bigotry. The target keeps moving. From the blacks to the Irish; atheists to Christians. But as always there are a few leaders: Ben Franklin, John Quincy Adams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln, Fredrick Douglas, Booker T Washington, Ghandi and Martin Luther King. They know that the march toward freedom never ends, man must be ever vigilant and pray less with his lips and more with his legs."
Author: Glenn Beck
7. "Pearce leaned in over the table to lock eyes with Mark. "Look, Mr. Beecher, you and I are going to be spending a lot of time together for the next week, got it? And when you think about it, I'm the only thing standing between you and a bullet in your head, so you might want to start being a little nicer and a lot more cooperative, okay?"
Author: Hank Edwards
8. "No man is sane who does not know how to be insane on the proper occasions."Henry Ward Beecher"
Author: Henry Ward Beecher
9. "Nineteenth-century preacher Henry Ward Beecher's last words were "Now comes the mystery." The poet Dylan Thomas, who liked a good drink at least as much as Alaska, said, "I've had eighteen straight whiskeys. I do believe that's a record," before dying. Alaska's favorite was playwright Eugene O'Neill: "Born in a hotel room, and--God damn it--died in a hotel room." Even car-accident victims sometimes have time for last words. Princess Diana said, "Oh God. What's happened?" Movie star James Dean said, "They've got to see us," just before slamming his Porsche into another car. I know so many last words. But I will never know hers."
Author: John Green
10. "I think for Beecher specifically, Keller was with him when his wife died. Beecher had decided after he first got into prison that he had to shut off everybody. You can't let anybody in and you have to become like them and you have to be threatening and all that."
Author: Lee Tergesen
11. "A nobreza", escreveu Beecher, "reside não em ser-se forte mas no justo uso da força…" o mais nobre é aquele cuja força eleva mais corações atraídos pelo seu próprio coração."
Author: R.J. Palacio
