In the meantime, it is heartening to know that Christ's victory over Satan can be enforced now by means of prayer. Daniel prayed for twenty-one days, and finally the angel of Satan was defeated. Earthly victories depend on heavenly victories, and vice versa. We who battle evil on the earth are fellow warriors with the angels who battle evil in the invisible realms, and our prayers form a network of power and communication that work in tandem on both fronts. This means the praying church actually wields a strong hand in determining the outcome of human events. As someone has said, "It is not the mayors that make the world go 'round; it is the pray-ers.David Jeremiah Heartening Sayings By David Jeremiah: In the meantime, it is heartening to know that Christ's victory over Satan can be

To increase the daily frequency of surprise and shock. The forerunners of revelation.Glenn Haybittle Heartening Sayings By Glenn Haybittle: The sight of Florence below, the cluster of churches and towers and palaces tiered up
Nobody knows anything. I deal with people in all walks of life, some of whom should have some idea of what they're doing. And they're all clueless.

I deal with people in all walks of life, some of whom

what marvelous creatures we are! What fairy story, what tale from the Arabian Nights of the jinns, is a hundredth part as wonderful as this true fairy story of simians! It is so much more heartening, too, than the tales we invent. A universe capable of giving birth to many such accidents is
blind or not
a good world to live in, a promising universe.

I remember when I was a kid at school having to learn a poem of sorts about a fellow named Pig-something - a sculptor he would have been, no doubt - who made a statue of a girl, and what should happen one morning but that the bally thing suddenly came to life. A pretty nasty shock for the chap, of course, but the point I'm working round to is that there were a couple of lines that went, if I remember correctly: She starts. She moves. She seems to feel The stir of life along her keel. And what I'm driving at is that you couldn't get a better description of what happened to Gussie as I spoke these heartening words. His brow cleared, his eyes brightened, he lost that fishy look, and he gazed at the slug, which was still on the long, long trail with something approaching bonhomie. A marked improvement.P.G. Wodehouse Heartening Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: I remember when I was a kid at school having to learn a poem of
I see all mythology as one tradition, a way of disseminating knowledge that must come to us in code so that we can live sanely with it, since some forms of knowledge are too dark, or too complex, to be plainly spoken. And so we have these weird (and also sometimes entertaining and surprising and heartening) tales that belong to all of us.Helen Oyeyemi Heartening Sayings By Helen Oyeyemi: I see all mythology as one tradition, a way of disseminating knowledge that must come

Maybe one of the most heartening findings from the psychology of pleasure is there's more to looking good than your physical appearance. If you like somebody, they look better to you.

His screaming disquieted the buzzards and further disgruntled the Poet, who was feeling peevish anyhow. He was a very dispirited Poet. He had never expected the world to act in a courteous, seemly, or even sensible manner, and the world had seldom done so; often he had taken heart in the consistency of its rudeness and stupidity. But never before had the world shot the Poet in the abdomen with a musket. This he found not heartening at all.Walter M. Miller Jr. Heartening Sayings By Walter M. Miller Jr.: His screaming disquieted the buzzards and further disgruntled the Poet, who was feeling peevish anyhow.

I saw 'Brokeback Mountain' in a packed house in Chelsea, New York, when I was filming a Bollywood film there. Chelsea, being a predominately gay neighbourhood, had the most euphoric reaction.

Convictions that outcomes are determined by one's own actions can be either demoralizing or heartening, depending on the level of self-judged efficacy.

What I find interesting and heartening, though, is that there does seem to be a shift in the subject matter being written about by women that is doing well in the culture.

It is most heartening to learn that young men and women, in their late teens and twenties, are increasingly attracted to meditative prayer in the Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

It is my hope that this devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist will spread to more and more parishes and dioceses across our nation.John Joseph O'Connor Heartening Sayings By John Joseph O'Connor: It is most heartening to learn that young men and women, in their late teens
I'm quite encouraged by the finding that voters do value checks and balances and accountability. I think it's very heartening.

Many of the points made by the antiwar movement have been consciously assimilated by the Pentagon and its lawyers and advisers. Precision weaponry is good in itself, but its ability to discriminate is improving and will continue to improve. Cluster bombs are perhaps not good in themselves, but when they are dropped on identifiable concentrations of Taliban troops, they do have a heartening effect.Christopher Hitchens Heartening Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: Many of the points made by the antiwar movement have been consciously assimilated by the
The good die when they should live, the evil live when they should die; heroes perish and cowards escape; noble efforts do not succeed because they are noble, and wickedness is consumed in its own nature. Looking at truth is not at first a heartening experience--it becomes so, if at all, only with time, with infinite patience, and with the luck of a little personal happiness.William Alexander Percy Heartening Sayings By William Alexander Percy: The good die when they should live, the evil live when they should die; heroes
Partisans present some of the most refreshing music I've heard in a long while, uncompromising, very well written and very well played. It demands serious attention.

It's heartening to hear music that looks to find its own particular place.Steve Swallow Heartening Sayings By Steve Swallow: Partisans present some of the most refreshing music I've heard in a long while, uncompromising,
