Everyday I strive to, at least, recognise my short-comings and the things I have to do to be the best person that I can possibly be.Alexander O'Neal Comings Sayings By Alexander O'Neal: Everyday I strive to, at least, recognise my short-comings and the things I have to
The examen is a form of personal inventory. At day's end, spend time in prayerful reflection on your day: your comings and goings, routines and disruptions, work and play, discoveries and disappointments. Think about who you met, or missed. Think about your moments of aloneness. In all, ask two questions: when was I most alive, most present, most filled and fulfilled today? And when was I most taxed, stressed, distracted, depleted today? A simpler, and more spiritually focused, version of those questions: when did I feel closest to God, and when farthest?Mark Buchanan Comings Sayings By Mark Buchanan: The examen is a form of personal inventory. At day's end, spend time in prayerful
Geniuses are disconcerting. Their comings and goings in the ideal world give one vertigo ... They have a telescope in one eye and a microscope in the other.Victor Hugo Comings Sayings By Victor Hugo: Geniuses are disconcerting. Their comings and goings in the ideal world give one vertigo ...
What is the difference between my view and the classical Christian perspective? I am convinced that there are not multiple comings and multiple returns of Christ, but only one decisive coming at the end of the world, which includes the resurrection, the rapture, and his appearance in the sky!Eli Of Kittim Comings Sayings By Eli Of Kittim: What is the difference between my view and the classical Christian perspective? I am convinced
Love your kids and just be there for them. You don't have to eyeball their every moment or to orchestrate all their comings and goings. They know this. They know that's too much. All they want is to be assured that there's a home fire cooking, that there are two foremen and a rulebook, and that there's someone to tuck them in at night.Carew Papritz Comings Sayings By Carew Papritz: Love your kids and just be there for them. You don't have to eyeball their
The NT writers have no need to prove the Trinity; the comings of Christ and the Spirit for our salvation have adequately proved that doctrine for both writers and the original readers of the NT.Anonymous Comings Sayings By Anonymous: The NT writers have no need to prove the Trinity; the comings of Christ and
Life's rewards as well as it's short-comings are magnetic reflections of the vivacious energies we release through our thoughts, our actions, and our words.Netiera Danise Comings Sayings By Netiera Danise: Life's rewards as well as it's short-comings are magnetic reflections of the vivacious energies we
Curiosity evokes 'concern'; it evokes the care one takes for what exists and could exist; a readiness to find strange and singular what surrounds us; a certain relentlessness to break up our familiarities and to regard otherwise the same things; a fervor to grasp what is happening and what passes; a casualness in regard to the traditional hierarchies of the important and the essential. I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from the channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good.' Rather, we must multiply the paths and the possibility of comings and goings.Michel Foucault Comings Sayings By Michel Foucault: Curiosity evokes 'concern'; it evokes the care one takes for what exists and could exist;
My transgressions and short-comings present me with a list of accusations, but I bless Thee that they will not stand against me, for all have been laid on Christ.Anonymous Comings Sayings By Anonymous: My transgressions and short-comings present me with a list of accusations, but I bless Thee
Nobody can live on a bridge or plant potatoes but it is fine for comings and goings, meetings, partings and long views and a real connection to someplace else where you may in the crazy weathers of struggle how and again want to be.Marge Piercy Comings Sayings By Marge Piercy: Nobody can live on a bridge or plant potatoes but it is fine for comings
In wretched little lives like that, someone must intervene. Or at least mark their sad comings and goings. Mark and if possible permanently record so they'll be remembered. For a better day, later on, when people will understand.Philip K. Dick Comings Sayings By Philip K. Dick: In wretched little lives like that, someone must intervene. Or at least mark their sad
Women don't realize how much store men set on the regularity of their habits. We absorb their comings and goings into our bodies, their rhythms into our bones.Louise Erdrich Comings Sayings By Louise Erdrich: Women don't realize how much store men set on the regularity of their habits. We
New Testament authors all may have been premillennialists, they may all have been amillennialists, or some may not have had a particular worked-out conviction. But all were oriented to the idea of fulfillment in Christ and then in his people, in both his first and his second comings. This central motif rather than the Millennium as such dominated teaching about the future.Vern Sheridan Poythress Comings Sayings By Vern Sheridan Poythress: New Testament authors all may have been premillennialists, they may all have been amillennialists, or
And yet I know I am too young, that we're too young, for me to live my life only as it relates to you. If you had asked me to marry you the night you first told me about your acceptance, I would have embraced Princeton as part of a larger plan that involved me. I probably would have reacted differently.
I might even had said yes.
Alas, you didn't ask me then. You made plans for your future without me in mind, And that's okay. But how can you now ask me to arrange my life around you?
Megan McCafferty Comings Sayings By Megan McCafferty: And yet I know I am too young, that we're too young, for me to
There are three distinct comings of the Lord of which I know: His coming to men, His coming into men, and His coming against men.Bernard Of Clairvaux Comings Sayings By Bernard Of Clairvaux: There are three distinct comings of the Lord of which I know: His coming to
I appreciate how impossible it is to convey an adequate realization of the office of President. A few short paragraphs in the Constitution of the United States describe all his fundamental duties. Various laws passed over a period of nearly a century and a half have supplemented his authority. All of his actions can be analyzed. All of his goings and comings can be recited. The details of his daily life can be made known. The effect of his policies on his own country and on the world at large can be estimated. His methods of work, his associates, his place of abode, can all be described. But the relationship created by all these and more, which constitutes the magnitude of the office, does not yield to definition. Like the glory of a morning sunrise, it can only be experienced it cannot be told.Calvin Coolidge Comings Sayings By Calvin Coolidge: I appreciate how impossible it is to convey an adequate realization of the office of
Satire is a good tool for highlighting flaws or short-comings, but it is also a way to goad individuals, groups and governments into improvement, by juxtaposing reality with absurdity and not having a giant chasm in between.Marietta Rodgers Comings Sayings By Marietta Rodgers: Satire is a good tool for highlighting flaws or short-comings, but it is also a
Neuroscientist David Comings drew out the larger implications of such hallucinations for the relationship between our rational and spiritual brains:
The psychedelic drugs like DMT often produce a sensation of "contact," of being in the presence of and interaction with a non-human being. Highly intelligent and sophisticated test subjects who knew these feelings were drug-induced nevertheless insisted the contact had really happened. The temporal lobe-limbic system's emotional tape recorder sometimes cannot distinguish between externally generated real events and internally generated non-real experience thus providing a system in which the rational brain and the spiritual brain are not necessarily in conflict.
Michael Shermer Comings Sayings By Michael Shermer: Neuroscientist David Comings drew out the larger implications of such hallucinations for the relationship between
People also don't care about the daily comings and goings of diplomats and yet we must report it.Roone Arledge Comings Sayings By Roone Arledge: People also don't care about the daily comings and goings of diplomats and yet we
Far from the comings and goings,
her heart resembled a lighted sign,
an ancient Balance or Lyre--
names gone too long to remember.
Rainer Maria Rilke Comings Sayings By Rainer Maria Rilke: Far from the comings and goings,her heart resembled a lighted sign,an ancient Balance or Lyre--names
The city lies at the galaxy's dust-stranded edge, enfolding a moon that used to be a world, or a world that used to be a moon; no one is certain anymore. In the mornings its skies are radiant with clouds like the plumage of a bird ever-rising, and in the evenings the stars scatter light across skies stitched and unstitched by the comings and goings of fire-winged starships. Its walls are made of metal the color of undyed silk, and its streets bloom with aleatory lights, small solemn symphonies, the occasional duel.Yoon Ha Lee Comings Sayings By Yoon Ha Lee: The city lies at the galaxy's dust-stranded edge, enfolding a moon that used to be
2. The Book of Revelation. Does the book of Revelation give us a blueprint of coming world turmoil (the futurist position)? Or have some of the events in Revelation already taken place throughout church history, with some still to come (the historicist or historical approach)? Or does Revelation report events that were current at the time of writing but are now completed (the preterist view)? Or does Revelation speak in a timeless, symbolic way of the life of the church between the comings of Christ (the symbolic or idealist view)? Or is some combinationRobert L. Plummer Comings Sayings By Robert L. Plummer: 2. The Book of Revelation. Does the book of Revelation give us a blueprint of
If you cannot uplift someone, don't risk the repercussions attached to trying to bring them down. Malicious behavior always finds its way back to you in one form or the other. If you examine yourself and acknowledge your own short-comings, you would not have the mindset or heart to judge what you deem to be the missteps of another.Tanya R. Taylor Comings Sayings By Tanya R. Taylor: If you cannot uplift someone, don't risk the repercussions attached to trying to bring them
Believe the best about people. Pray for their short comings. You are not the standard. We all need grace.LeCrae Comings Sayings By LeCrae: Believe the best about people. Pray for their short comings. You are not the standard.
The consulships were not the only ornamental offices in Roman society: the Eternal City was filled with the comings and goings of impotent men - senators, magistrates, bustling administrators of all kinds - performing meaningless duties.Thomas Cahill Comings Sayings By Thomas Cahill: The consulships were not the only ornamental offices in Roman society: the Eternal City was
Let the clock and the earth do their own thing ... Let the comings and goings of life continue ... But YOU stay HERE and NOW. This exercise is to bring you to the Eternal Present where it all is.Ram Dass Comings Sayings By Ram Dass: Let the clock and the earth do their own thing ... Let the comings and
That's what great books are about, revealing our life in a way stories only can. We see ourselves in the characters, our own struggles and short comings in a way that's non threatening and non judgmental. We learn from the characters we take those lessons and inspirations back to the real world I believe that a good book leaves its readers better then they were before.A.G. Riddle Comings Sayings By A.G. Riddle: That's what great books are about, revealing our life in a way stories only can.
I learned something else about love from Rowen.
She taught me that when you do find the person you
want to love for the rest of your life, it's okay to
embrace change. It's okay to change yourself.
Everyone likes to think that when they find that special
someone, that person should accept them and their
flaws, vices, and short-comings. Maybe they're an
amazing enough person that they do ... but they
shouldn't have to. A person should want to change
themselves for the better when they find that person.
Nicole Williams Comings Sayings By Nicole Williams: I learned something else about love from Rowen.She taught me that when you do find
There was a time when a new deputy tried to teach Mr. Fruit about the difference between a red and a green light, but Mr. Fruit had resisted all efforts to reorder what he had been doing perfectly well for many years. He had not only monitored the comings and goings of the town, his presence softened the ingrained evil that flourished along the invisible margins of the town's consciousness. Any community can be judged in its humanity or corruption by how it manages to accommodate the Mr. Fruits of the world. Colleton simply adjusted itself to Mr. Fruit's harmonies and ordinations. He did whatever he felt was needed and he did it with style. "That's the Southern way" my grandmother said. "That's the nice way.Pat Conroy Comings Sayings By Pat Conroy: There was a time when a new deputy tried to teach Mr. Fruit about the
I didn't make 'The New York Times' bestseller list until 'Charmed Thirds,' and then again for 'Fourth Comings.' It gave me a certain validation, and it certainly helps position me for future books, but it's not something I think about on a daily basis.Megan McCafferty Comings Sayings By Megan McCafferty: I didn't make 'The New York Times' bestseller list until 'Charmed Thirds,' and then again
For the girls the regular comings and goings restored their superior sense of self, a superiority they had received intact from Moran and which was little acknowledged by the wide world in which they had to work and live. That unexplained notion of superiority was often badly shaken and in need of restoration by the time they came home.John McGahern Comings Sayings By John McGahern: For the girls the regular comings and goings restored their superior sense of self, a
A farmer, a hunter, a soldier, a reporter, even a philosopher, may be daunted; but nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? His business calls him out at all hours, even when doctors sleep.Henry David Thoreau Comings Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: A farmer, a hunter, a soldier, a reporter, even a philosopher, may be daunted; but
Amidst the rush of worldly comings and goings, I observe how all endings become beginningsWayne Dyer Comings Sayings By Wayne Dyer: Amidst the rush of worldly comings and goings, I observe how all endings become beginnings
Man must learn to stand and walk with his spirit rather than crawl with his technology before he allows that technology - which is the physical expression of his spiritual Shadow - to destroy him. God's ultimate aim for Man is not known and not even knowable in our present state; we must become spiritually adult before we can even discover what God holds in store for us as a spiritual species; all previous ideas of Heaven (or Hell) or Second Comings or Judgment Days are childish attempts to come to terms with our own ignorance.Iain Banks Comings Sayings By Iain Banks: Man must learn to stand and walk with his spirit rather than crawl with his
Look, life is stressful. This is true everywhere. But life in Night Vale is more stressful. There are things lurking in the shadows. Not the projections of a worried mind, but literal Things, lurking, literally, in shadows. Conspiracies are hidden in every storefront, under every street, and floating in helicopters above. And with all that there is still the bland tragedy of life. Births, deaths, comings, goings, the gulf of subjectivity and bravado between us and everyone we care about. All is sorrow, as a man once said without really doing much about it.Joseph Fink Comings Sayings By Joseph Fink: Look, life is stressful. This is true everywhere. But life in Night Vale is more
If by chance I seated myself to write, she very slyly, very tenderly, seeking protection and caresses, would softly take her place on my knee and follow the comings and goings of my pen - sometimes effacing, with an unintentional stroke of her paw, lines of whose tenor she disapproved.Pierre Loti Comings Sayings By Pierre Loti: If by chance I seated myself to write, she very slyly, very tenderly, seeking protection
Words are great, but even I can admit they have certain short-comings. No word can ever give justice to a smile from a man who never smiled or to an old woman who gives up her seat on the bus to a soldier who lost his leg. And I'm still convinced there's no word out there for the feeling you get the first time you ever hit home plate or bury your first dog or muster up enough courage to tell a girl you love her.Laura Miller Comings Sayings By Laura Miller: Words are great, but even I can admit they have certain short-comings. No word can
Get a notebook, my young folks, a journal that will last through all time, and maybe the angels may quote from it for eternity. Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies.Spencer W. Kimball Comings Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: Get a notebook, my young folks, a journal that will last through all time, and
Thank God for all of your short comings because it gives the people who don't belong in your life something to hang their insecurities on as they drift away in a cloud of delusional perfection.Carl Henegan Comings Sayings By Carl Henegan: Thank God for all of your short comings because it gives the people who don't
Dave, would you please tell your wife she can relax. She's got the job. It isn't necessary for her to keep pointing out our short-comings just so you can feel better about leaving us.Delora Dennis Comings Sayings By Delora Dennis: Dave, would you please tell your wife she can relax. She's got the job. It
We live in a country where Americans assimilate corpses in their daily comings and goings. Dead blacks are a part of normal life here. Dying in ship hulls, tossed into the Atlantic, hanging from trees, beaten, shot in churches, gunned down by the police, or warehoused in prisons: Historically, there is no quotidian without the enslaved, chained, or dead black body to gaze upon or to hear about or to position a self against.Jesmyn Ward Comings Sayings By Jesmyn Ward: We live in a country where Americans assimilate corpses in their daily comings and goings.
We have all kinds of limitations as human beings. I mean we can't see the whole electromagnetic spectrum; we can't see the very small; we can't see the very far. So we compensate for these short comings with technological scaffoldings. The microscope allows us to extend our vision into the micro-sphere.Jason Silva Comings Sayings By Jason Silva: We have all kinds of limitations as human beings. I mean we can't see the
Fear wants us to become obsessed with some event or person in the future, a year, a month, even a day. It also wants us to look backwards not at our successes, but our short-comings and our failures. Fear losses it's grip when we stay in the now.Rob Bell Comings Sayings By Rob Bell: Fear wants us to become obsessed with some event or person in the future, a
The boundary between the real and the unreal had been let down in Foote's mind, and between the comings and goings of the cloud-shadows and the dark errands of the ghosts there was no longer any way of making a selection. He had entered the cobwebby borderland between the human and the animal, where nothing is ever more than half true, and only as much as half true for the moment.

("There Shall Be No Darkness")
James Blish Comings Sayings By James Blish: The boundary between the real and the unreal had been let down in Foote's mind,
Between lips and lips there are cities of great ash and moist summit, drops of when and how, vague comings and goings: between lips and lips as along a shore of sand and glass the wind passes.Pablo Neruda Comings Sayings By Pablo Neruda: Between lips and lips there are cities of great ash and moist summit, drops of
The Federal Building's large Ceremonial Courtroom, reserved for show trials, is veneered in executive teak. Bench, counsel tables, jury boxes, entrances, and exits
all are as formally arranged as an Elizabethan stage. Only the drama is shapeless, at least to those of us who have never seen a trial before. We see only random movements, sequences, comings and goings, no form or agenda apparent. To us the action is less like watching a play than watching an aquarium.
Shana Alexander Comings Sayings By Shana Alexander: The Federal Building's large Ceremonial Courtroom, reserved for show trials, is veneered in executive teak.
life is made up of many comings and goings and for everything that we take with us,we must leave something behindHerman Raucher Comings Sayings By Herman Raucher: life is made up of many comings and goings and for everything that we take
You've got to love yourself with all your short comings, and you've got to love the world no matter how bad it gets.Joan Bauer Comings Sayings By Joan Bauer: You've got to love yourself with all your short comings, and you've got to love
You can become a big master in chess only if you see your mistakes and short-comings. Exactly the same as in life itself.Alexander Alekhine Comings Sayings By Alexander Alekhine: You can become a big master in chess only if you see your mistakes and

Up to a few years ago nearly all the literature about Oceania was written by papalagi and other outsiders. Our islands were and still are a goldmine for romantic novelists and filmmakers, bar-room journalists and semi-literate tourists, sociologists and Ph.D. students, remittance men and sailing evangelists, UNO experts, and colonial administrators and their well-groomed spouses. Much of this literature ranges from the hilariously romantic through the pseudo-scholarly to the infuriatingly racist; from the noble savage literary school through Margaret Mead and all her comings of age, Somerset Maugham's puritan missionaries/drunks/and saintly whores and James Michener's rascals and golden people, to the stereotyped childlike pagan who needs to be steered to the Light.Albert Wendt Comings Sayings By Albert Wendt: Up to a few years ago nearly all the literature about Oceania was written by
He (Comings) has in the past performed successful energy-converting experiments, creating a ringing resonance by injecting certain frequencies into piezo-electric crystals. When the crystal was in resonance with the plenum of space, the power output rose significantly higher than the input. He concluded that, if allowed politically, such discoveries could guide humankind in building a completely clean energy infrastructure -- resonant technologies that allow us to live in harmony with the universal energy field and the Earth.Jeane Manning Comings Sayings By Jeane Manning: He (Comings) has in the past performed successful energy-converting experiments, creating a ringing resonance by
...[She] was not nearly so intrusive. If she happened to observe the comings and goings of her friends out of the corner of her eye (which she could hardly fail to do, given the nature of her favorite sitting-place) and chanced to be able to remember when she had seen them and where they had been going, it was simply a tribute to her keen powers of observation and recall. Conscious spying was beneath her altogether.Tom Holt Comings Sayings By Tom Holt: ...[She] was not nearly so intrusive. If she happened to observe the comings and goings
The Freshness
When it's cold and raining,
you are more beautiful.
And the snow brings me
even closer to your lips.
The inner secret, that which was never born,
you are that freshness, and I am with you now.
I can't explain the goings,
or the comings. You enter suddenly,
and I am nowhere again.
Inside the majesty.
Rumi Comings Sayings By Rumi: The FreshnessWhen it's cold and raining,you are more beautiful.And the snow brings meeven closer to
People need something to worship, lad. They need a belief in something beyond this world. Look at it now. This world is in chaos. People are killing each other for conquest, stealing, bringing each other down whenever they get the chance. Believe it or not, most people know this in one way or another. Perhaps they don't understand the magnitude, but they see that this world is anything but perfect. They need something that makes their comings and goings here worthwhile.J.K. Miller II Comings Sayings By J.K. Miller II: People need something to worship, lad. They need a belief in something beyond this world.
Ask Me
Some time when the river is ice ask me
mistakes I have made. Ask me whether
what I have done is my life. Others
have come in their slow way into
my thought, and some have tried to help
or to hurt: ask me what difference
their strongest love or hate has made.
I will listen to what you say.
You and I can turn and look
at the silent river and wait. We know
the current is there, hidden; and there
are comings and goings from miles away
that hold the stillness exactly before us.
What the river says, that is what I say.
William Stafford Comings Sayings By William Stafford: Ask MeSome time when the river is ice ask memistakes I have made. Ask me
If I know somebody is coming 'round, it is incredibly difficult for me to work because I'm waiting for this interruption - even the children's comings and goings are interruptions. Cake-making is a good way of coming out of that space.Rachel Cusk Comings Sayings By Rachel Cusk: If I know somebody is coming 'round, it is incredibly difficult for me to work
Remember, Voyager was just a flyby, Cassini is in orbit. We have the opportunity for monitoring them and their behavior, their comings and goings, how they evolve, when they appear and disappear.Carolyn Porco Comings Sayings By Carolyn Porco: Remember, Voyager was just a flyby, Cassini is in orbit. We have the opportunity for
That's what I learned. I learned I couldn't shed light on love other than to feel its comings and goings and be grateful.Diane Keaton Comings Sayings By Diane Keaton: That's what I learned. I learned I couldn't shed light on love other than to
Good, I thought, relieved. At least I'd actually gotten the flight right. Getting her schedule had turned out to be a challenge. It had taken over a week of calling in favors, in fact, and that was with me knowing the CEO of her airline personally. The comings and goings of airline employees were well-guarded, I had learned.R.K. Lilley Comings Sayings By R.K. Lilley: Good, I thought, relieved. At least I'd actually gotten the flight right. Getting her schedule
I am in love with this world ... I have tilled its soil, I have gathered its harvest, I have waited upon its seasons, and always have I reaped what I have sown. I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings.John Burroughs Comings Sayings By John Burroughs: I am in love with this world ... I have tilled its soil, I have
Sail forth into the sea of life, O gentle, loving, trusting wife, And safe from all adversity Upon the bosom of that sea Thy comings and thy goings be! For gentleness and love and trust Prevail o'er angry wave and gust; And in the wreck of noble lives Something immortal still survives.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Comings Sayings By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: Sail forth into the sea of life, O gentle, loving, trusting wife, And safe from
