Nature is a temple where living columns Let slip from time to time uncertain words; Man finds his way through forests of symbols Which regard him with familiar gazes.
Charles Baudelaire



You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise.
Maya Angelou



Nations eagerly invested their rulers with every prerogative needed to preserve their faith, and all the care to keep Church and State asunder, and to prevent the confusion of their powers, which had been the work of ages, was renounced in the intensity of the crisis. Atrocious deeds were done, in which religious passion was often the instrument, but policy was the motive. Fanaticism displays itself in the masses; but the masses were rarely fanaticised; and the crimes ascribed to it were commonly due to the calculations of dispassionate politicians.
John Dalberg-Acton, Lord Acton



Neither angel, nor archangel, nor yet even the Lord Himself (who alone can say "I am with you"), can, when we have sinned, release us, unless we bring repentance with us.
Saint Ambrose



Increase praying for the expediting of my manifestation because indeed it is your release from suffering.

Presidents are made, not born. Thats a good thing to remember. Its silly to think that Presidents are born, because very few people are 35 years old at birth, and those who are wont admit it. So if youre only 16 dont be discouraged, because its only a phase and theres nothing wrong with you that you wont outgrow.

Theres this one celebrity, Rosie ODonnell, a talk show host, and she said this: I dont know anything about Afghanistan, but I know its full of terrorists, speaking as a mother. So what is this "speaking as a mother" then? Is that a euphemism for "talking out of my arse"? "Suspending rational thought for a moment"? As a rational human being, Al-Qaeda are a loose association of psychopathic zealots who could be rounded up with a sustained police investigation. But speaking as a parent, theyre all eight foot tall, theyve got lasers under their moustaches, a huge eye in their foreheads and the only way to kill them is to NUKE every country that hasnt sent us a Christmas card in the the last 20 years!! "Speaking as a mother".
Bill Bailey



I don't care how much a man talks, if he only says it in a few words.
Henry Wheeler Shaw



I learned more about God from the tears of homeless mothers than any systematic theology ever taught me.
Shane Claiborne



Different is not wrong.
