He did not affirm the revolting conception of original sin, nor did he feel inclined to argue that it is a beneficent God who protects the worthless and wicked, rains misfortunes on children, stultifies the aged and afflicts the innocent. He did not exalt the virtues of a Providence which has invented that useless, incomprehensible, unjust and senseless abomination, physical suffering. Far from seeking to justify, as does the Church, the necessity of torments and afflictions, he cried, in his outraged pity: If a God has made this world, I should not wish to be that God. The world's wretchedness would rend my heart.Joris-Karl Huysmans Inclined Sayings By Joris-Karl Huysmans: He did not affirm the revolting conception of original sin, nor did he feel inclined

We're at a real time of transition here in terms of future aviation. What's going to be manned? What's going to be unmanned? There are those who see [the JSF] as the last manned fighter/bomber.

To make matters worse, Jackson placed great value on regurgitating every last detail of the assigned texts.

The lever, the wheel, and the inclined plane.S.C. Gwynne Inclined Sayings By S.C. Gwynne: To make matters worse, Jackson placed great value on regurgitating every last detail of the

Old Marley was as dead as a doornail.
Mind! I don't mean to say that, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a doornail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a doornail.
Charles Dickens Inclined Sayings By Charles Dickens: Old Marley was as dead as a doornail.Mind! I don't mean to say that, of

The witch-hunt was a perverse manifestation of the panic which set in among all classes when the balance began to turn toward greater individual freedom. The witch-hunt was not, however, a mere repression. It was also, and as importantly, a long overdue opportunity for everyone so inclined to express publicly his guilt and sins, under the cover of accusations against the victims.Arthur Miller Inclined Sayings By Arthur Miller: The witch-hunt was a perverse manifestation of the panic which set in among all classes

There are many people who are so inclined to say "no" that the "no" always precedes whatever we say to them. This negative quality makes them so disagreeable that, even if they do what we want them to or agree with what we say, they always lose the pleasure that they might have received had they not started off so badly.Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ... Inclined Sayings By Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...: There are many people who are so inclined to say "no" that the "no" always
As a photonic being, I could easily follow Captain Eden at a brisk run and likely overtake her in the next hour. Were you inclined to take better care of yourself - and maintain a routine of rigorous exercise, like most Starfleet officers - you might be able to keep pace with me. However, I suspect even a light jog would have you panting for mercy in less than four hundred meters.Kirsten Beyer Inclined Sayings By Kirsten Beyer: As a photonic being, I could easily follow Captain Eden at a brisk run and
I'm kind of floating out there as an artist. I'm in a safe place where I can play a girlfriend or a best friend or a mommy or a lawyer, but a huge part of me is unused. I'm classically trained, historically inclined and somewhat revolutionary by nature, so I'm frustrated as an artist.Nicole Ari Parker Inclined Sayings By Nicole Ari Parker: I'm kind of floating out there as an artist. I'm in a safe place where

Scientists believe that every occurrence, including the affairs of human beings, is due to the laws of nature. Therefore a scientist cannot be inclined to believe that the course of events can be influenced by prayer, that is, by a supernaturally manifested wish.Albert Einstein Inclined Sayings By Albert Einstein: Scientists believe that every occurrence, including the affairs of human beings, is due to the
Havna ye heard how the ancient Greeks associated sparrows with Aphrodite, the goddess of love?"...
"Och, 'tis no story. 'Tis the truth I give: When sparrows mated, it was due to their abandoned nature." His head inclined so he could whisper a kiss to her neck, sending shivers from her shoulders to the soles of her feet. "Even Chaucer and Shakespeare wrote about the sparrow's lustful conduct.
Vonnie Davis Inclined Sayings By Vonnie Davis: Havna ye heard how the ancient Greeks associated sparrows with Aphrodite, the goddess of love?"...
The debility to which Nature condemned women incontestably proves that her design is for man, who then more than ever enjoys his strength, to exercise it in all the violent forms that suit him best, by means of tortures, if he be so inclined, or worse.Marquis De Sade Inclined Sayings By Marquis De Sade: The debility to which Nature condemned women incontestably proves that her design is for man,
Need of that. I am not a young lady, and it's only a step. Take care of yourself, won't you?" "Yes, but you will come again, I hope?" "If you promise to come and see us after you are well." "I will."

He didn't know if her desperate efforts to be understanding and considerate were a good or bad thing. Perhaps it was all down to him being self-centered and irresponsible. But right now he found his wife's patience and desire to do the right thing stifling, which made him still more inclined to see it as a flaw in her character.Han Kang Inclined Sayings By Han Kang: He didn't know if her desperate efforts to be understanding and considerate were a good
An unconscious people, an indoctrinated people, a people fed only partisan information and opinion that confirm their own bias, a people made morbidly obese in mind and spirit by the junk food of propaganda is less inclined to put up a fight, ask questions and be skeptical. And just as a democracy can die of too many lies, that kind of orthodoxy can kill us, too.Bill Moyers Inclined Sayings By Bill Moyers: An unconscious people, an indoctrinated people, a people fed only partisan information and opinion that
The more they erect barriers, the more we feel inclined to pull them down. If the barriers are too high, we will go under them. If the barriers are too deep, we will learn to fly. If your heart is set on freedom, no cage will ever keep you in.Chloe Thurlow Inclined Sayings By Chloe Thurlow: The more they erect barriers, the more we feel inclined to pull them down. If
I am inclined to think that the authority of Holy Scripture is intended to convince men of those truths which are necessary for their salvation, which, being far above man's understanding, can not be made credible by any learning, or any other means than revelation by the Holy Spirit.Galileo Galilei Inclined Sayings By Galileo Galilei: I am inclined to think that the authority of Holy Scripture is intended to convince
As for fowling, during the last years that I carried a gun my excuse was that I was studying ornithology, and sought only new or rare birds. But I confess that I am now inclined to think that there is a finer way of studying ornithology than this. It requires so much closer attention to the habits of the birds, that, if for that reason only, I have been willing to omit the gun.Henry David Thoreau Inclined Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: As for fowling, during the last years that I carried a gun my excuse was
I am much inclined to live from my rucksack, and let my trousers fray as they like.Hermann Hesse Inclined Sayings By Hermann Hesse: I am much inclined to live from my rucksack, and let my trousers fray as
Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to believe the latter. Inborn in nearly every artist's nature is a voluptuous, treacherous tendency to accept the injustice if it creates beauty and to grant sympathy and homage to aristocratic preferences.Thomas Mann Inclined Sayings By Thomas Mann: Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to
Positively inclined people see everything in their right proportions. They put right things into perspective and are not envious of others. They attach importance to those things that give meaning to daily life, but they tend to focus more on others than themselvesHerman Van Rompuy Inclined Sayings By Herman Van Rompuy: Positively inclined people see everything in their right proportions. They put right things into perspective
That's just where I must part company with you, Inspector," said the Vicar with a gentle smile.

11. I am inclined to say: I 'point' in different senses to this body, to its shape, to its colour, etc.
What does that mean?
What does it mean to say I 'hear' in a different sense the piano, its sound, the piece, the player, his fluency? I 'marry', in one sense a woman, in another her money.
Ludwig Wittgenstein Inclined Sayings By Ludwig Wittgenstein: 11. I am inclined to say: I 'point' in different senses to this body, to

Do Russians believe what their government tells them? Not necessarily. But that doesn't mean they are inclined to believe anybody else either, and that works to the advantage of those already in power because it takes a lot more to motivate resistance than to maintain passivity.Anonymous Inclined Sayings By Anonymous: Do Russians believe what their government tells them? Not necessarily. But that doesn't mean they

Even if drugs are fully as destructive as they are usually claimed to be, it is morally wrong and demonstrably more destructive for government to deprive people of their unalienable, individual, civil, Constitutional, and human right to make an utter mess of their own lives. Since human beings are inclined to learn more from the mistakes they make, rather than from their triumphs, the right to fail, for individuals and groups alike, may be even more important than the right to succeed, and it must be fiercely protected at almost any cost.L. Neil Smith Inclined Sayings By L. Neil Smith: Even if drugs are fully as destructive as they are usually claimed to be, it
Where do whites fit in the New Africa? Nowhere, I'm inclined to sayand I do believe that it is true that even the gentlest and most westernised Africans would like the emotional idea of the continent entirely without the complication of the presence of the white man for a generation or two. But nowhere, as an answer for us whites, is in the same category as remarks like What's the use of living? in the face of the threat of atomic radiation. We are living; we are in Africa.Nadine Gordimer Inclined Sayings By Nadine Gordimer: Where do whites fit in the New Africa? Nowhere, I'm inclined to sayand I do
The key to the missionary's work is the authority of Jesus Christ, not the needs of the lost. We are inclined to look on our Lord as one who assists us in our endeavors for God. Yet our Lord places Himself as the absolute sovereign and supreme Lord over His disciples. He does not say that the lost will never be saved if we don't go- He simply says, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations ... "Oswald Chambers Inclined Sayings By Oswald Chambers: The key to the missionary's work is the authority of Jesus Christ, not the needs
Because art as a pursuit, as a concept, as an ideal, constantly elevates one above the pragmatic, one is inclined to discuss art in heightened terminologies. For me, it is just what I do all day long.Ralph Gibson Inclined Sayings By Ralph Gibson: Because art as a pursuit, as a concept, as an ideal, constantly elevates one above

The beanball is one of the meanest things on Earth and no decent fellow would use it. The beanball is a potential murderer.

I do not know why the dead do not come back to life. Perhaps death is so wonderful, in ways we cannot comprehend, that they prefer it over and above their friends and loved ones, although I am inclined to doubt that be the case.Tom Robbins Inclined Sayings By Tom Robbins: I do not know why the dead do not come back to life. Perhaps death
Temperance referred not abstaining, but going the right length and no further ... of course it may be the duty of a particular Christian, or any Christian, at a particular time, to abstain from strong drink, either because he is the sort of man who cannot drink at all without drinking too much, or because he wants to give the money to the poor, or because he is with people who are inclined to drunkenness and must not encourage them by drinking himself. But the whole point he is abstaining, for a good reason, from something he does not condemn and which he likes to see other people enjoying.C.S. Lewis Inclined Sayings By C.S. Lewis: Temperance referred not abstaining, but going the right length and no further ... of course

There is on the earth no institution which Friendship has established; it is not taught by any religion; no scripture contains its maxims. It has no temple nor even a solitary column ... However, out fates at least are social. Our courses do not diverge; but as the web of destiny is woven it is fulled, and we are cast more and more into the centre. Men naturally, though feebly, seek this alliance, and their actions faintly foretell it. We are inclined to lay the chief stress on likeness and not on difference, and in foreign bodies we admit that there are many degrees of warmth below blood heat, but none of cold above it.Henry David Thoreau Inclined Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: There is on the earth no institution which Friendship has established; it is not taught
The preaching of divines helps to preserve well-inclined men in the course of virtue, but seldom or ever reclaims the vicious.Jonathan Swift Inclined Sayings By Jonathan Swift: The preaching of divines helps to preserve well-inclined men in the course of virtue, but
You'd think that philisophy might have put the kibosh on some of the Freddy Krueger stuff," I mused, tilting my jaw until I felt the pull of the scar.
"And well it might, if you ever let on that it hurt."
I'm inclined to agree with that, too, but there's a limit. "So I should start going strapless."
"DOn't be snotty.
Melissa Jensen Inclined Sayings By Melissa Jensen: You'd think that philisophy might have put the kibosh on some of the Freddy Krueger

There are certain people whom one feels almost inclined to urge to hurry up and die so that their letters can be published.Christopher Morley Inclined Sayings By Christopher Morley: There are certain people whom one feels almost inclined to urge to hurry up and
Those who romanticize war often like to think of it, at least in areas of mortal peril, as nothing but "guts and glory." Those who are inclined to pacifism, by contrast, often think of it as an unbroken sequence of horrors. Actually, however, people in wartime still fall in love, do the laundry, worry about pimples, drink beer, and do most of the same things that they do in times of peace. The patterns of daily life may be mundane, but they are remarkably tenacious.
But, while people in wartime still go about their daily routines, the prospect of imminent death can give even quotidian chores a heightened intensity. When the first bombs were dropped on London in autumn of 1940, the population bore adversity better than almost anybody had expected. The danger was mixed with excitement, and the terror had a sort of apocalyptic magnificence.
Boria Sax Inclined Sayings By Boria Sax: Those who romanticize war often like to think of it, at least in areas of
People who feel themselves to be exiles in this world are mightily inclined to believe themselves citizens of another.George Santayana Inclined Sayings By George Santayana: People who feel themselves to be exiles in this world are mightily inclined to believe

If you're inclined to dismiss L.A. as a place of unrelenting vapidity and generic 1980s architecture, then you're doing yourself and L.A. a huge disservice, and you're just not looking hard enough.Moby Inclined Sayings By Moby: If you're inclined to dismiss L.A. as a place of unrelenting vapidity and generic 1980s
Beauty in music is too often confused with something that lets the ear lie back in an easy chair. Many sounds that we are used to do not bother us, and for that reason we are inclined to call them beautiful. Frequently - possibly almost invariably - analytical and impersonal test will show that when a new or unfamiliar work is accepted as beautiful on its first hearing, its fundamental quality is one that tends to put the mind to sleep.Charles Ives Inclined Sayings By Charles Ives: Beauty in music is too often confused with something that lets the ear lie back
As the innocent infant relies upon the mother for sustenance, so the innocent wanderer, following his native compassion and bliss, relies upon the natural intelligence of life to sustain him. There are various Ways. There is the Way of salvation by the law of Buddha, the Way of Confucius governing the Way of learning, the Way of healing as a doctor, as a poet teaching the Way of Waka, tea, archery, and many arts and skills. Each man practices as he feels inclined.Miyamoto Musashi Inclined Sayings By Miyamoto Musashi: As the innocent infant relies upon the mother for sustenance, so the innocent wanderer, following
Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf any of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World; we ride railroad tracks that do not follow faithfully the curvature of the earth, for the train would jump the tracks if they were level. We pass skyscrapers whose stress and strain are figured to the millionth of an inch, yet take for granted that the Empire State Building actually sways constantly many feet. If we are religiously inclined, we take going to the church of our choice for granted; if we are non believers, we give no second thought to the fact that we do not have to attend religious services if we do not choose. Yet the very privilege of non-belief represents the victory of philosophy; otherwise the non-churchgoer would still face the lions or the stake.Kahlil Gibran Inclined Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf
It's normal at this point for the fear-anger syndrome to take over and make you want to hammer on that side plate with a chisel, to pound it off with a sledge if necessary. You think about it, and the more you think about it the more you're inclined to take the whole machine to a high bridge and drop it off. It's just outrageous that a tiny little slot of a screw can defeat you so totally.Robert M. Pirsig Inclined Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: It's normal at this point for the fear-anger syndrome to take over and make you
Being a kid is so much more fun than being an adult. I think that's the crux of it. I think men are just less inclined to grow up because it's much more fun being a child.Robert Kazinsky Inclined Sayings By Robert Kazinsky: Being a kid is so much more fun than being an adult. I think that's
If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about the people with whom their children associate ... Much harm may result from bad company, and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse than what is better.Elizabeth Ann Seton Inclined Sayings By Elizabeth Ann Seton: If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about
They possess the self- effacing virtues of people who are inclined to be useful but don't need to prove anything to the world:David Brooks Inclined Sayings By David Brooks: They possess the self- effacing virtues of people who are inclined to be useful but
I'm inclined to reserve all judgement, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and made me the victim of not a few veteran bores. The abnormal mind is quick to detect and attach itself to this quality when it appears in a normal person, and so it came about that in college I was unjustly accused of being a politician, because I was privy to the secret griefs of wild, unknown men.F Scott Fitzgerald Inclined Sayings By F Scott Fitzgerald: I'm inclined to reserve all judgement, a habit that has opened up many curious natures
I have noticed ... that men usually leave married women alone and are inclined to treat all wives with respect. This is no great credit to married women.Marilyn Monroe Inclined Sayings By Marilyn Monroe: I have noticed ... that men usually leave married women alone and are inclined to
The angle from which the line and ball are seen makes a tremendous difference in the call, and the player who is inclined to fret inwardly about decisions should realize this.Helen Wills Moody Inclined Sayings By Helen Wills Moody: The angle from which the line and ball are seen makes a tremendous difference in
I am inclined to agree with the Head Master of Eton that paederastic passions among schoolboys 'do no harm'; further, I think them the only redeeming feature of sexual life at public schools.Aleister Crowley Inclined Sayings By Aleister Crowley: I am inclined to agree with the Head Master of Eton that paederastic passions among
In never-ending efforts to defeat incumbent officeholders in hard times, the public is perpetuating the source of its discontent, electing a new group of people who are even less inclined to or capable of crafting compromise or solutions to pressing problems.Thomas E. Mann Inclined Sayings By Thomas E. Mann: In never-ending efforts to defeat incumbent officeholders in hard times, the public is perpetuating the
What business, said Priscilla's look more plainly than any words, what business had people to walk into other people's cottages in such a manner? She stood quite still, and scrutinized Mrs. Morrison with the questioning expression she used to find so effective in Kunitz days when confronted by a person inclined to forget which, exactly, was his proper place. But Mrs. Morrison knew nothing of Kunitz, and the look lost half its potency without its impressive background. Besides, the lady was not one to notice things so slight as looks; to keep her in her proper place you would have needed sledge-hammers.Elizabeth Von Arnim Inclined Sayings By Elizabeth Von Arnim: What business, said Priscilla's look more plainly than any words, what business had people to
I am convinced, the longer I live, that life and its blessings are not so entirely unjustly distributed as when we are suffering greatly we are inclined to suppose.Mary Todd Lincoln Inclined Sayings By Mary Todd Lincoln: I am convinced, the longer I live, that life and its blessings are not so
Of course, the strippers also take pains not to appear too innocent, valorous, or bookishly inclined. (In direct opposition to the Swayze Mandate of 1987, everybody puts Baby in a goddamn corner.)Diablo Cody Inclined Sayings By Diablo Cody: Of course, the strippers also take pains not to appear too innocent, valorous, or bookishly
It is not enough for us to perform the works of virtue, exercising obedience, excepting poverty or disgrace or practicing humility or detachment in some other way; rather we should strive ceaselessly until we attain the essence and ground of virtue. And we can tell if we have attained this or not by asking whether we find ourselves inclined to virtue above all else and perform the works of virtue without prior preparation of the will, practicing virtue without the ulterior motive even of a great and good cause, so that the virtuous act in fact happen spontaneously on account of love of virtue and without asking 'what for?' Then and only then do we have the perfect possession of virtue.Meister Eckhart Inclined Sayings By Meister Eckhart: It is not enough for us to perform the works of virtue, exercising obedience, excepting
Because I love narrative but am more lyrically inclined, I've learned that if I freight titles with narrative information (the who, what, when, where, why of the poem), I can get to my main interest, which is the language, and where it wants to take me. If I can establish the poem's occasion in the title, then so much the better for my freedom to associate.Anna Journey Inclined Sayings By Anna Journey: Because I love narrative but am more lyrically inclined, I've learned that if I freight
We try it practically every time it comes up, be it amnesty, be it any other issue they want. We try and it gets us nowhere, and it doesn't get us any favors among left-wing-inclined voters, either.Rush Limbaugh Inclined Sayings By Rush Limbaugh: We try it practically every time it comes up, be it amnesty, be it any

There is nothing that Nature seems to have inclined us to as much as society.Niccolo Machiavelli Inclined Sayings By Niccolo Machiavelli: There is nothing that Nature seems to have inclined us to as much as society.
Depictions or expressions of sex, violence, crime are all permitted virtually without limit; but religion, it seems, never.No wonder many in America seem to believe that the court has become one more inclined to protect pornography than to protect religious expression.John Cornyn Inclined Sayings By John Cornyn: Depictions or expressions of sex, violence, crime are all permitted virtually without limit; but religion,
But Empire building also bears the seeds of its own destruction. The closer a state comes to the ultimate goal of world domination and one-world government, the less reason is there to maintain its internal liberalism and do instead what all states are inclined to do anyway, i.e., to crack down and increase their exploitation of whatever productive people are still left. Consequently, with no additional tributaries available and domestic productivity stagnating or falling, the Empire's internal policies of bread and circuses can no longer be maintained. Economic crisis hits, and an impending economic meltdown will stimulate decentralizing tendencies, separatist and secessionist movements, and lead to the break-up of Empire. We have seen this happen with Great Britain, and we are seeing it now, with the US and its Empire apparently on its last leg.Hans-Hermann Hoppe Inclined Sayings By Hans-Hermann Hoppe: But Empire building also bears the seeds of its own destruction.

I inclined my head slightly, and lowered my shield only long enough to say down the bond: To the dreams that answered.
A heartbeat later a sensual caress trailed along my mental shields - a polite request. I let it drop, let him in, and his voice filled my head. To the huntresses who remember to reach back for those less fortunate - and water-wraiths who swim very, very fast.

It is quite edifying to hear women speculate upon the worthlessness and the duration of beauty. But though virtue is a much finer thing, and those hapless creatures who suffer under the misfortune of good looks ought to be continually put in mind of the fate which awaits them; and though, very likely, the heroic female character which ladies admire is a more glorious and beautiful object than the kind, fresh, smiling, artless, tender little domestic goddess, whom men are inclined to worship - yet the latter and inferior sort of women must have this consolation - that the men do admire them after all; and that, in spite of all our kind friends' warnings and protests, we go on in our desperate error and folly,William Makepeace Thackeray Inclined Sayings By William Makepeace Thackeray: It is quite edifying to hear women speculate upon the worthlessness and the duration of
I'm told my father cemented a number of profitable deals in this room." Alan eased down beside her.
Shelby opened her eyes to slits. "I imagine he did.By the time he was through, he could've reduced most normally built men to puddbles." Idly the trailed a fingertip down Alan's thigh. "Do you ever use saunas for vital government intrigue, Senator?"
"I'm inclined to think of other things in small hot rooms." Bending,he brushed his lips over her bare shoudler-the touch of a tongue,the quick pressure of teeth. "Vital,certainly, but more personal."
"Mmm." Shelby tilted her head as he trailed his lips closer to her throat. "How personal?"
"Highly confidential.

It was the least I could do after what you did for us," Gregori said. Mikhail graciously thanked each of the Lycan hunters for their help. Vikirnoff and Natalya along with Destiny and Nicolae immediately came over. Destiny had fought with the Lycans and she introduced her lifemate, his brother and Natalya as she led the other pack members over to the tables of food and drink. Fen knew immediately that Mikhail had planned for just that move. The pack respected Destiny's abilities and would relate to her and her family. Out of the corner of his eye he could see other Carpathian couples going up and introducing themselves to the pack members and engaging them in conversation. Mikhail inclined his head toward Fen. "I believe you two know one another." "We've certainly fought a few battles together now," Zev said, holding out his hand to Fen.Christine Feehan Inclined Sayings By Christine Feehan: It was the least I could do after what you did for us," Gregori said.
A British imperium enabled Scots to feel themselves peers of the Ebglish in a way still denied them in an island kingdom. The language bears that out very clearly. The English and the foreign are still all too inclined to refer to the island of Great Britain as 'England'. But at no time have they ever customarily referred to an English empire.Linda Colley Inclined Sayings By Linda Colley: A British imperium enabled Scots to feel themselves peers of the Ebglish in a way

The danger of tautological propositions is considerable in discussions of the concept of normal profits. Because supernormal profits seem to invite newcomers to an industry and sub-normal profits seem to drive away those who are in an industry, some writers are inclined to define normal profits as the earnings of the fixed resources in an industry which neither grows nor declines in size or number of firms. It should be clear that such a definition is useless: it muddles together attractiveness and actual afflux, desirbility of entry and ease of entry, zero profits and monopoly rents.Fritz Machlup Inclined Sayings By Fritz Machlup: The danger of tautological propositions is considerable in discussions of the concept of normal profits.
Attorneys are more inclined to gouge clients than some other professionals are such as medical doctors and dentist simply because most clients do not need continuous legal care. Comparable to undertakers, legal work does not generate many repeat clients.Kilroy J. Oldster Inclined Sayings By Kilroy J.

I was still without any formal spiritual direction, but I went frequently to confession, especially at St. Francis' Church, where the Friars were more inclined to give me advice than secular priests had been. And it was in one of the confessionals at St. Francis' that a good priest one day told me, very insistently: "Go to Communion every day, every day." By that time, I had already become a daily communicant, but his words comforted and strengthened me, and his emphasis made me glad. And indeed I had reason to be, for it was those daily Communions that were transforming my life almost visibly, from day to day.Thomas Merton Inclined Sayings By Thomas Merton: I was still without any formal spiritual direction, but I went frequently to confession, especially

Chemical exploration, chemical discovery, was all the more romantic for its dangers. I felt a certain boyish glee in playing with these dangerous substances, and I was struck, in my reading, by the range of accidents that had befallen the pioneers. Few naturalists had been devoured by wild animals or stung to death by noxious plants or insects; few physicists had lost their eyesight gazing at the heavens, or broken a leg on an inclined plane; but many chemists had lost their eyes, limbs, and even their lives, usually through producing inadvertent explosions or toxins.Oliver Sacks Inclined Sayings By Oliver Sacks: Chemical exploration, chemical discovery, was all the more romantic for its dangers.

Paul states here that the call of God is to preach the gospel. But remember what Paul means by "the gospel," namely, the reality of redemption in our Lord Jesus Christ. We are inclined to make sanctification the goal of our preaching. Paul refers to personal experiences only by way of illustration, never as the end of the matter. We are not commissioned to preach salvation or sanctification - we are commissioned to lift up Jesus Christ (see John 12:32).Oswald Chambers Inclined Sayings By Oswald Chambers: Paul states here that the call of God is to preach the gospel.
