Orson F Whitney Quotes

"The spirit of the gospel is optimistic; it trusts in God and looks on the bright side of things. The opposite or pessimistic spirit drags men down and away from God, looks on the dark side, murmurs, complains, and is slow to yield obedience."

Ray B Browne Quotes

"An even more pointed example of the the power of the silence tabu in libraries occurred in Duluth in 1981. The police were pursuing a fugitive from justice who ran into the public library. Uniformed police surrounded the building, and the library director was notified that only unobtrusive plainclothesmen were entering the building. Their instructions: "When you find him, overpower him. Quietly." It was done, and only a few people in the crowded building saw a handcuffed man being ushered past the checkout counter. "See," one librarian remarked quietly to an amazed person, "thats what happens when you dont pay your book fines."

Quotes About Ballgame

"I played a lot of sports when I was a kid so I get in that ballgame mindset of being really, really respectful, but at same time saying to yourself, Dont back down a single inch, hang with these guys if you can. If they throw it high and tight you have to stand in there, you cant take yourself out of that moment." - Author: Michael Keaton

"I know its weird.""Well, yes, its weird. Technically, I think its insane. But who am I to judge?" Maggie shrugged. "I live in a house most people view as the setting of a horror movie waiting to happen, with an army of security ninjas and a couple dozen epileptic dogs for company.

Quotes About Complexities

"Prayer does not blind us to the world, but it transforms our vision of the world, and makes us see it, all men, and all the history of mankind, in the light of God. To pray in spirit and in truth enables us to enter into contact with that infinite love, that inscrutable freedom which is at work behind the complexities and the intricacies of human existence. This does not mean fabricating for ourselves pious rationalizations to explain everything that happens. It involves no surreptitious manipulation of the hard truths of life." - Author: Thomas Merton

Quotes About Faire

"Ah! je voulais te dire aussi, naie pas peur de leur sabir. Le sabir du pauvre daujourdhui, cest largot du pauvre dhier, ni plus ni moins. Depuis toujours le pauvre parle argot. Sais-tu pourquoi? Pour faire croire au riche quil a quelque chose à lui cacher. Il na rien à cacher, bien sûr, il est beaucoup trop pauvre, rien que des petits trafics par-ci par-là, des broutilles, mais il tient à faire croire que cest un monde entier quil cache, un univers qui nous serait interdit, et si vaste quil aurait besoin de toute une langue pour lexprimer. Mais il ny a pas de monde, bien sûr, et pas de langue. Rien quun petit lexique de connivence, histoire de se tenir chaud, de camoufler le désespoir." - Author: Daniel Pennac

Quotes About Twenty Years Old

"They made love then. Kassad, at twenty-three standard years, had been in love once and had enjoyed sex many times. He thought he knew the way and the why of it. There was nothing in his experience to that moment which he could not have described with a phrase and a laugh to his squadmates in the hold of a troop transport. With the calm, sure cynicism of a twenty-three-year-old veteran he was sure that he would never experience anything that could not be so described, so dismissed. He was wrong. He could never adequately share the sense of the next few minutes with anyone else. He would never try." - Author: Dan Simmons

Quotes About Deep Passionate Love

"In a little while they were kissing. In a little while longer, they made their slow sweet love.The iron bed sounded like a pine forest in an ice storm, like a switch track in a Memphis trainyard, like the sweet electrical thunder of habitual love and the tragical history of the constant heart. Auntee finished first, and then Uncle soon after, and their lips were touching lightly as they did.The rain was still falling and the scritch owl was still asleep and the dragonflies were hidden like jewels somewhere in deep brown wet grasses, nobody knew where.Uncle rolled away from his wife and held onto her hand, never let it go, old friend, old partner, passionate wife." - Author: Lewis Nordan

Quotes About Fish And Friendship

"Obviously, the choice between human selfishness and divine Selfishness is not about leaving or not leaving a relationship. More important are the day-to-day opportunities in the course of relationship. It is really the choice of living from the heart or living from fear. And how do you live from fear? Saying "yes" when your heart wants to say "no." Saying "no" when your heart wants to say "yes." By not listening to your heart (i.e., what is best for your soul), you compromise your truth, and cause suffering in the relationship. You may be afraid of hurting your friend. You may be afraid of losing their love and friendship. Whatever it is you are afraid of, it is still fear that is ruling you, rather than love." - Author: Joyce Vissell
