So crosses don't do anything against your kind?" Sean asked.
"No," Arland said. "There is no mystical force repelling us."
"Then why?"
"We're forbidden to kill a creature in a moment of prayer or invocation of their deity. Well, we can, technically, but you have to do penance and purify yourself and nobody wants to spend weeks praying and bathing themselves in the sacred cave springs. The water's only a fraction warmer than ice. When one of you holds up a cross, it's difficult to determine whether you're praying, invoking, or just waving it around. So the sane strategy is to back away.
Ilona Andrews Sacred Sayings By Ilona Andrews: So crosses don't do anything against your kind?" Sean asked."No," Arland said. "There is no

When we appeal to the throne of grace we do so through Mary, honoring God by honoring His Mother, imitating Him by exalting her, touching the most responsive chord in the sacred heart of Christ with the sweet name of Mary.Robert Bellarmine Sacred Sayings By Robert Bellarmine: When we appeal to the throne of grace we do so through Mary, honoring God
Though the worshipper had enjoyed so much, still he had not yet entered the Presence of God. Another veil separated from the Holy of Holies where above the mercy seat dwelt the very God Himself in awful and glorious manifestation. While the tabernacle stood, only the high priest could enter there, and that but once a year, with blood which he offered for his sins and the sins of the people. It was this last veil which was rent when our Lord gave up the ghost on Calvary, and the sacred writer explains that this rending of the veil opened the way for every worshipper in the world to come by the new and living way straight into the divine Presence.A.W. Tozer Sacred Sayings By A.W. Tozer: Though the worshipper had enjoyed so much, still he had not yet entered the Presence
Let us think of a Christian believer in whose life the twin wonders of repentance and the new birth have been wrought. He is now living according to the will of God as he understands it from the written Word. Of such a one it may be said that every act of his life is or can be as truly sacred as prayer or baptism or the Lord's Supper. To say this is not to bring all acts down to one dead level; it is rather to lift every act up into a living kingdom and turn the whole of life into a sacrament.Aiden Wilson Tozer Sacred Sayings By Aiden Wilson Tozer: Let us think of a Christian believer in whose life the twin wonders of repentance
Yeah, we were looking for a way to represent adulthood and the passing into adulthood. And I think, for me personally and a lot of the folks that I work with, childhood is kind of a sacred, special kind of point in time that has a real joy and purity to it. And we sort of long on a daily basis to reach back and kind of grab onto that in some way.Pete Docter Sacred Sayings By Pete Docter: Yeah, we were looking for a way to represent adulthood and the passing into adulthood.
You must know that there is nothing higher and stronger and more wholesome and good for life in the future than some good memory, especially a memory of childhood, of home. People talk to you a great deal about your education, but some good, sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. If a man carries many such memories with him into life, he is safe to the end of his days, and if one has only one good memory left in one's heart, even that may sometime be the means of saving us.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Sacred Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: You must know that there is nothing higher and stronger and more wholesome and good
In the Quranic vision there is no dichotomy between the sacred and the profane, the religious and the political, sexuality and worship. The whole of life was potentially holy and had to be brought into the ambit of the divine. The aim was tawhid (making one), the integration of the whole of life in a unified community, which would give Muslims intimations of the Unity which is God.Karen Armstrong Sacred Sayings By Karen Armstrong: In the Quranic vision there is no dichotomy between the sacred and the profane, the
Would you say that any one sacred book is superior to all others in the world? ... I say the New Testament, after that, I should place the Koran , which in its moral teachings, is hardly more than a later edition of the New Testament. Then would follow according to my opinion the Old Testament, the Southern Buddhist Tripitaka , the Tao-te-king of Laotze , the Kings of Confucius , the Veda and the Avesta .Max Muller Sacred Sayings By Max Muller: Would you say that any one sacred book is superior to all others in the
She kissed him, her body molding to his, and in his mind her beautiful voice rose in song just for him. The notes skipped from his mind to the sky, silver and gold notes of joy and happiness, of courage and admiration. She sang of love between two people, sacred and beautiful. She sang of peace and happiness. Her hands moved over him possessively, lovingly, checking his body for wounds. Her warrior was home. WhateverChristine Feehan Sacred Sayings By Christine Feehan: She kissed him, her body molding to his, and in his mind her beautiful voice
The life of men and women is so cheap and property is so sacred. There are so many of us for one job it matters little if 146 of us are burned to death.Rose Schneiderman Sacred Sayings By Rose Schneiderman: The life of men and women is so cheap and property is so sacred. There
Then, Valentine's Day came. There was a dance, and balloons and flowers and cheaply made rings and all sorts of lame teddy bears and stuffed animals, as if teenagers can be wooed with the same shit as five-year-olds. It was the Dietzes' most hated holiday of the year, too, because it dealt with the consumerization of something sacred. Mom and Dad had agreed never to buy each other anything on the day. It was a false, Hallmark holiday. A sham. A moneymaking sideshow for insecure couples who didn't have true love. I agreed with this, for the most part.A.S. King Sacred Sayings By A.S. King: Then, Valentine's Day came. There was a dance, and balloons and flowers and cheaply made
Much though he recites the sacred texts, but acts not accordingly, that heedless man is like a cowherd who only counts the cows of others - he does not partake of the blessings of the holy life.Gautama Buddha Sacred Sayings By Gautama Buddha: Much though he recites the sacred texts, but acts not accordingly, that heedless man is
The power of sacred music increases the honor given to God by the Church in union with Christ, its Head. Sacred music likewise helps to increase the fruits which the faithful, moved by the sacred harmonies, derive from the holy liturgy. These fruits, as daily experience and many ancient and modern literary sources show, manifest themselves in a life and conduct worthy of a Christian.Pope Pius XII Sacred Sayings By Pope Pius XII: The power of sacred music increases the honor given to God by the Church in
[Dessie's] shop was a unique institution in Salinas. It was a woman's world. Here all the rules, and the fears that created the iron rules, went down. The door was closed to men. It was a sanctuary where women could be themselves- smelly, wanton, mystic, conceited, truthful, and interested. The whalebone corsets came off at Dessie's, the sacred corsets that moulded and warped woman-flesh into goddess-flesh. At Dessie's they were women who went to the toilet and overate and scratched and farted. And from this freedom came laughter, roars of laughter.John Steinbeck Sacred Sayings By John Steinbeck: [Dessie's] shop was a unique institution in Salinas. It was a woman's world. Here all
Hadrian, an African born, a man accurately learned in the sacred writings as well as trained in monastical and ecclesiastical discipline, and right skilful in the Greek as well as the Latin tongue. This man being called to the pope was willed of him to take the bishopric upon him and travel unto Britain.
[Hadrianus, vir natione Afir, sacris literis diligenter imbutus, monasterialibus simul et ecclesiasticis disciplinis institutus, Graecae pariter et Latinae linguae peritissimus. Hunc ad se accitum Papa iussit episcopatu accepto Brittaniam venire.]
Bede Sacred Sayings By Bede: Hadrian, an African born, a man accurately learned in the sacred writings as well as

Merkabah is translated as either meaning the throne of god or chariot. Both definitions imply a means of spiritual ascension, not a physical one. They only have it partly right.L.Z.Marie Sacred Sayings By L.Z.Marie: Merkabah is translated as either meaning the throne of god or chariot. Both definitions imply
Adorn your sacred-existence.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: Adorn your sacred-existence.
They learned to live contently with small things, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy not respectable, and to be rich not wealthy. They let the sacred and unconscious bloom amidst the common, rendering it all extraordinary.David Paul Kirkpatrick Sacred Sayings By David Paul Kirkpatrick: They learned to live contently with small things, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and
O black and unknown bards of long ago, How came your lips to touch the sacred fire?James Weldon Johnson Sacred Sayings By James Weldon Johnson: O black and unknown bards of long ago, How came your lips to touch the
As for us, we were never concerned with the Kantian-priestly and vegetarian-Quaker prattle about the "sacredness of human life". We were revolutionaries in opposition, and have remained revolutionaries in power. To make the individual sacred, we must destroy the social order which crucifies him. And that problem can only be solved by blood and iron. The man who recognizes the revolutionary historic importance of the very fact of the existence of the Soviet system must also sanction the Red Terror.Leon Trotsky Sacred Sayings By Leon Trotsky: As for us, we were never concerned with the Kantian-priestly and vegetarian-Quaker prattle about the
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. This is a blessed thought, for it means that we cannot wander from the presence of God, or depart from divine care. Always God watches over us and comforts us. Forever we sit in the house of the divine and we are ceaselessly cared for. The all-seeing eye cannot overlook any one, and all are kept in sacred care. All are kept in divine care.Ernest Holmes Sacred Sayings By Ernest Holmes: His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. This is a
I want you to remember my lips beneath your fingers and how you told me things you never told another soul. I want you to know that I have kept sacred, everything you had entrusted in me and I always will.Lang Leav Sacred Sayings By Lang Leav: I want you to remember my lips beneath your fingers and how you told me
Today a thousand doors of enterprise are open to you, inviting you to useful work. To live at this time is an inestimable privilege, and a sacred obligation devolves upon you to make right use of your opportunities. Today is the day in which to attempt and achieve something worthwhile.Grenville Kleiser Sacred Sayings By Grenville Kleiser: Today a thousand doors of enterprise are open to you, inviting you to useful work.
When shall I at last retire into solitude alone, without companions, without joy and without sorrow, with only the sacred certainty that all is a dream? When, in my rags - without desires - shall I retire contented into the mountains? When, seeing that my body is merely sickness and crime, age and death, shall I - free, fearless, and blissful - retire to the forest? When? When, oh when?Nikos Kazantzakis Sacred Sayings By Nikos Kazantzakis: When shall I at last retire into solitude alone, without companions, without joy and without
Many of the rites of passage, those rituals of growing up found in our society, are in the form of such comic, practical joking affairs
which we ignore in the belief that they possess no deeper significance. Yet it is precisely in their being regarded as unimportant that they take on importance. For in them we ritualize and dramatize attitudes which contradict and often embarrass the sacred values which we proclaim through our solemn ceremonies and rituals of nationhood.
Ralph Ellison Sacred Sayings By Ralph Ellison: Many of the rites of passage, those rituals of growing up found in our society,
In this way all violent bonds and orders are cancelled as if the freedom of the primal world had been restored with one blow. Man, too, is made open and true by this freedom. Wine, as Plutarch says so nicely, frees the soul of subservience, fear, and insincerity; it teaches men how to be truthful and candid with one another. It reveals that which was hidden. Wine and truth have long been associated in proverbs. It is a good thing, so it is said, to search for the truth in earnest conversation while one drinks wine, and agreements arrived at over a wine glass were at one time considered to be the most sacred and inviolable agreements.Walter F. Otto Sacred Sayings By Walter F. Otto: In this way all violent bonds and orders are cancelled as if the freedom of
When the subject is sacred, proud and clever men may come to think that the outsiders who don't know it are not merely inferior to them in skill but lower in God's eyes; as the priests said, 'All that rabble who are not experts in the Torah are accursed.' and as this pride increases, the 'subject' or study which confers such privilege will grow more and more complicated, the list of things forbidden will increase, till to get through a single day without supposed sin becomes like an elaborate step-dance, and this horrible network breeds self-righteousness in some and haunting anxiety in others.C.S. Lewis Sacred Sayings By C.S. Lewis: When the subject is sacred, proud and clever men may come to think that the
You know, for me, the realization that two people should have the right to form a sacred union regardless of their gender was strengthened when I saw a performance of the play The Normal Heart in 1985. After feeling the love those two men had for each other, I dare anybody not to want them to get married by the end.Barbra Streisand Sacred Sayings By Barbra Streisand: You know, for me, the realization that two people should have the right to form
A religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things, that is to say, things set apart and forbidden-beliefs and practices which unite into one single moral community called a Church, all those who adhere to them.Emile Durkheim Sacred Sayings By Emile Durkheim: A religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things, that
A true home is one of the most sacred of places. It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world's perils and alarms. It is a resting-place to which at close of day the weary retire to gather new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow. It is the place where love learns its lessons, where life is schooled into discipline and strength, where character is molded.J.R. Miller Sacred Sayings By J.R. Miller: A true home is one of the most sacred of places. It is a sanctuary
For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding the public a steady line of sacred bull.Ralph Nader Sacred Sayings By Ralph Nader: For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding
The Lord will bless us as we attend to the sacred ordinance work of the temples. Blessings there will not be limited to our temple service. We will be blessed in all of our affairs.Boyd K. Packer Sacred Sayings By Boyd K. Packer: The Lord will bless us as we attend to the sacred ordinance work of the
We welcome you to this moment in your lives and to the place you have come to in each other's hearts. We join with you on this day, as you commit before God and humanity that from this point forward you shall live as one. I remind all of our guests that you have been invited here for a holy purpose, not just to witness, but to participate fully with your thoughts and prayers, asking God to bless this couple and their married life. You are here because this couple feels close to you and asks that you join with them in this dedication of sacred purpose. You represent symbolically all the people in the world who will be touched in any way by the life of this couple. You represent their friends and family, now and forever. They have chosen this act of marriage and this public, holy ceremony in which to proclaim it. Together we all thank God who brought them together and ask Him always to guide their way.Marianne Williamson Sacred Sayings By Marianne Williamson: We welcome you to this moment in your lives and to the place you have
When we connect to Creator, our sacred character develops.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: When we connect to Creator, our sacred character develops.
If the many and the One be indeed the same Reality, then it is not all modes of worship alone, but equally all modes of work, all modes of struggle, all modes of creation, which are paths of realization. No distinction, henceforth, between sacred and secular. To labour is to pray. To conquer is to renounce. Life is itself religion. To have and to hold is as stern a trust as to quit and to avoid.Nivedita Sacred Sayings By Nivedita: If the many and the One be indeed the same Reality, then it is not
Marriage is sacred intimacy. The husband must love, feed and care for the family. The wife must love, respect and submit to the husband.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: Marriage is sacred intimacy. The husband must love, feed and care for the family. The
There is a yearning that is as spiritual as it is sensual. Even when it degenerates into addiction, there is something salvageable from the original impulse that can only be described as sacred. Something in the person (dare we call it a soul?) wants to be free, and it seeks its freedom any way it can ... There is a drive for transcendence that is implicit in even the most sensual of desires.Mark Epstein Sacred Sayings By Mark Epstein: There is a yearning that is as spiritual as it is sensual. Even when it
Go ye, who rest so placidly upon the sacred Bard who had been young, and when he strung his harp was old, and had never seen the righteous forsaken, or his seed begging their bread; go, Teachers of content and honest pride, into the mine, the mill, the forge, the squalid depths of deepest ignorance, and uttermost abyss of man's neglect, and say can any hopeful plant spring up in air so foul that it extinguishes the soul's bright torch as fast as it is kindled!Charles Dickens Sacred Sayings By Charles Dickens: Go ye, who rest so placidly upon the sacred Bard who had been young, and
In all God's plans for human redemption, He proposes that men pray. The men are to pray in every place, in the church, in the closet, in the home, on sacred days and on secular days.Edward McKendree Bounds Sacred Sayings By Edward McKendree Bounds: In all God's plans for human redemption, He proposes that men pray. The men are
History is sacred - like a nature hike. 'Leave only footprints, take only memories.Rysa Walker Sacred Sayings By Rysa Walker: History is sacred - like a nature hike. 'Leave only footprints, take only memories.
These most crafty enemies [the devils] have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on Her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.Pope Leo XIII Sacred Sayings By Pope Leo XIII: These most crafty enemies [the devils] have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the
No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature. Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to that or this; the only right is what is after my constitution; the only wrong is what is against it.Ralph Waldo Emerson Sacred Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature. Good and bad
Just as it is by His goodness that God gives being to beings, so also it is by His goodness that He makes causes to be causes, thus delegating to them a certain participation in His actuality. Or rather, since causality flows from actuality, let us say that He confers the one in conferring the other, so that to the Christian mind the physical world in which we live offers a face which is the reverse of its physicism itself, a face where all that was read on the one side in terms of force, energy and law, is now read, on the other in terms of participations and analogies of the Divine Being. The Christian world takes on the character of a sacred world with a relation to God inscribed in its very being and every law that rules its functioning.Etienne Gilson Sacred Sayings By Etienne Gilson: Just as it is by His goodness that God gives being to beings, so also
I will allow only my Lord to possess my sacred lotus pond, and every night you can make blossom in me flowers of fire.Huang E Sacred Sayings By Huang E: I will allow only my Lord to possess my sacred lotus pond, and every night
Another way of putting this is that black Baptists were outsiders to the dominant white/European way of doing church. Instead, they forged a history of their own, and even their own distinct form of sacred music.Thomas S. Kidd Sacred Sayings By Thomas S. Kidd: Another way of putting this is that black Baptists were outsiders to the dominant white/European
During these past years, not being able to speak with you, I dedicated myself to reviewing, within myself, the sacred books I know by heart. I had the idea I should summarize them in a single volume. Then, in a single chapter, then in a single page, and finally in a single sentence. This sentence is the greatest thing I can teach you. It seems simple, but if you understand it, you will never have to study again." The Rabbi recited it. And life, from that moment on, changed for Alejandro. "If God is not here, He is nowhere; this instant itself is perfection.Alejandro Jodorowsky Sacred Sayings By Alejandro Jodorowsky: During these past years, not being able to speak with you, I dedicated myself to
Pebble is a piece of sacred ground. They say it's the greatest meeting of land and water in the world. This course was heaven designed - just the way it fits on the land.Johnny Miller Sacred Sayings By Johnny Miller: Pebble is a piece of sacred ground. They say it's the greatest meeting of land
In the sacred-time, all beatitudes manifest.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: In the sacred-time, all beatitudes manifest.
The seventeenth century is everywhere a time in which the state's power over everything individual increases, whether that power be in absolutist hands or may be considered the result of a contract, etc. People begin to dispute the sacred right of the individual ruler or authority without being aware that at the same time they are playing into the hands of a colossal state power.Jacob Burckhardt Sacred Sayings By Jacob Burckhardt: The seventeenth century is everywhere a time in which the state's power over everything individual
There is nothing holy nor sacred to those who have abandoned God and reason in order to follow their perverse desires.Francois Rabelais Sacred Sayings By Francois Rabelais: There is nothing holy nor sacred to those who have abandoned God and reason in
To me there is nothing more sacred than love and laughter, and there is nothing more prayerful than playfulness. When you are in love, all fears disappear, and when you become love yourself, even death becomes irrelevant. Jesus is not very far away from the truth when he says, "God is love." Certainly God is power, the greatest power. I want to improve upon Jesus: I don't say God is love, I say love is God. To me God is only a symbol and love is a reality. God is only a myth - love is the experience of millions of people. God is only a word, but love can become a dance in your heart.Rajneesh Sacred Sayings By Rajneesh: To me there is nothing more sacred than love and laughter, and there is nothing
Abstemiousness in diet and control of the passions, will preserve the intellect and give mental and moral vigor, enabling men to bring all their propensities under the control of the higher powers, and to discern between right and wrong, the sacred and the common.Ellen G. White Sacred Sayings By Ellen G. White: Abstemiousness in diet and control of the passions, will preserve the intellect and give mental
Multiculturalism, which is so passionately promoted, can sometimes amount to an abandonment and denial, a flight from one's own things. Multiculturalism teaches us to approach the sacred things of others with respect, but we can do this only if we ourselves are not estranged from the sacred, from God.Pope Benedict XVI Sacred Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Multiculturalism, which is so passionately promoted, can sometimes amount to an abandonment and denial, a
In the music business I am surrounded by people who don't view music as a sacred voice. They view music as something that they can use and exploit, often times lazily. They have no sense of the tradition, they have no sense of honor about those who came before and charted the path.Billy Corgan Sacred Sayings By Billy Corgan: In the music business I am surrounded by people who don't view music as a
If you study the scriptures continually, you find sacredness of life.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: If you study the scriptures continually, you find sacredness of life.
The relationship between the prophet and the President, the priest and the President, is a sacred one.Jesse Jackson Sacred Sayings By Jesse Jackson: The relationship between the prophet and the President, the priest and the President, is a
Far-stretching, endless Time
Brings forth all hidden things,
And buries that which once did shine.
The firm resolve falters, the sacred oath is shattered;
And let none say, "It cannot happen here".
Sophocles Sacred Sayings By Sophocles: Far-stretching, endless TimeBrings forth all hidden things,And buries that which once did shine.The firm resolve
Coming to know the hidden and forgotten Mother and the marvelous wisdom of the sacred feminine as revealed from every side and angle by the different mystical traditions is not luxury; it is, I believe, a necessity for our survival as a species.Andrew Harvey Sacred Sayings By Andrew Harvey: Coming to know the hidden and forgotten Mother and the marvelous wisdom of the sacred
In Russia no one is surprised when an official accepts a bribe while at the same time portraying the state as some sacred entity to which the bourgeois should pay homage. This all sounds absurd. But for Russians it is completely normal.Vladimir Sorokin Sacred Sayings By Vladimir Sorokin: In Russia no one is surprised when an official accepts a bribe while at the
Our time on this earth is sacred, and we should celebrate every moment.
The importance of this has been completely forgotten: even religious holidays have been transformed into opportunities to go to the beach or the park or skiing. There are no more rituals. Ordinary actions can no longer be transformed into manifestations of the sacred. We cook and complain that it's a waste of time, when we should be pouring our love into making that food. We work and believe it's a divine curse, when we should be using our skills to bring pleasure and to spread the energy of the Mother.
Paulo Coelho Sacred Sayings By Paulo Coelho: Our time on this earth is sacred, and we should celebrate every moment.The importance of
While I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw;
For I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being....And I saw that it was holy
Black Elk Sacred Sayings By Black Elk: While I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more

The world is yours. Occupy it sacred space.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: The world is yours. Occupy it sacred space.
We believe and we hold our beliefs to be true and sacred until the day we discover that we were duped. The end of belief is a challenging moment. You feel lonely, unconnected, with nothing to hang on. Your life becomes empty and aimless. You curse the day doubt entered your mind but you cannot undo the damage. You need to find a new direction for your life, something new to hang your hope on to continue living. And most of the time that thing is you. At that junction in life you will need to believe in yourself to continue living.Bangambiki Habyarimana Sacred Sayings By Bangambiki Habyarimana: We believe and we hold our beliefs to be true and sacred until the day
Sarcasm is my sacred totem animal. I swear I wouldn't survive without it.Anonymous Sacred Sayings By Anonymous: Sarcasm is my sacred totem animal. I swear I wouldn't survive without it.
Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness.George MacDonald Sacred Sayings By George MacDonald: Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness.
The interesting thing about the New Albion was that it was so
completely modern in spirit. There was hardly a soul in the firm
who was not perfectly well aware that publicity - advertising - is
the dirtiest ramp that capitalism has yet produced. In the red
lead firm there had still lingered certain notions of commercial
honour and usefulness. But such things would have been laughed at
in the New Albion. Most of the employees were the hard-boiled,
Americanized, go-getting type to whom nothing in the world is
sacred, except money. They had their cynical code worked out. The
public are swine; advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a
swill-bucket. And yet beneath their cynicism there was the final
naivete, the blind worship of the money-god.
George Orwell Sacred Sayings By George Orwell: The interesting thing about the New Albion was that it was so completely modern in
And so, in the space of a few yards, the sacred springs of Gafsa, those laughing, chattering, amorous waters of the Romans that well up here in a river of warmth and purity, had been reduced to those of a Cloaca Maxima.Charles Sprawson Sacred Sayings By Charles Sprawson: And so, in the space of a few yards, the sacred springs of Gafsa, those
The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally.Gordon B. Hinckley Sacred Sayings By Gordon B. Hinckley: The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred
Everything needs to be lampooned. I believe that there's not any sacred ground.Thomas Middleditch Sacred Sayings By Thomas Middleditch: Everything needs to be lampooned. I believe that there's not any sacred ground.
Life is sacred? Who said so? God? Hey, if you read history, you realize that God is one of the leading causes of death! Has been for thousands of years! Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians; all taking turns killing each other because God told 'em it was a good idea.George Carlin Sacred Sayings By George Carlin: Life is sacred? Who said so? God? Hey, if you read history, you realize that
Man makes himself, and he only makes himself completely in proportion as he desacrilizes himself and the world. The sacred is the prime obstacle to his freedom. He will become himself only when he is totally demysticized. He will not be truly free until he has killed the last god.Mircea Eliade Sacred Sayings By Mircea Eliade: Man makes himself, and he only makes himself completely in proportion as he desacrilizes himself
Even the most open person has a private, sacred place where no one else may go.Rick Yancey Sacred Sayings By Rick Yancey: Even the most open person has a private, sacred place where no one else may
If we could visit Highsmith today, I would lead you down the silent corridors until we came to a striking seal on the floor, a blood-red H carved in stone. This hallowed seal represents the sacred Honor of every student who spends four years at Highsmith.

The stone seal is indelible, consecrated by the generations of alumnae who have passed by, understanding and believing. No outsider, no matter how cunning, can ever steal that belief away.

Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.Willow Smith Sacred Sayings By Willow Smith: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live,
The Eskimos have thirty words for describing different kinds of snow, and modern Russian has about the same number of expressions to describe giving a bribe to a state official.Victor Pelevin Sacred Sayings By Victor Pelevin: The Eskimos have thirty words for describing different kinds of snow, and modern Russian has
The body is a sacred garment. It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with, and it should be treated with honor.Martha Graham Sacred Sayings By Martha Graham: The body is a sacred garment. It's your first and last garment; it is what
Using vile means to attain worthy ends makes the ends themselves vile. Let them ride on the backs of doctors and medical assistants, but why lie to the people? Why assure the people they are right in their ignorance and that their crude prejudices are sacred truth? Can any splendid future possibly justify this basr lie? Were I a politician, I could never make up my mind to shame my present for the sake of the future, even though I might be promised tons of bliss for a pinch of foul lying.Anton Chekhov Sacred Sayings By Anton Chekhov: Using vile means to attain worthy ends makes the ends themselves vile. Let them ride
We have to shift our attitude of ownership of nature to relationship with nature. The moment you change from ownership to relationship, you create a sense of the sacred.Satish Kumar Sacred Sayings By Satish Kumar: We have to shift our attitude of ownership of nature to relationship with nature. The
Even the most sacred things are not to be honored before the Devil has had his say against them. But since the evil advocate is always able to think of further objections, absolute certainty can never be achieved. He is also allowed to go to extremes, to make use of polemics, mockery or slander. A sentimental plea for tolerance and decorum is merely an attempt to protect one's own cowardice.Wolfgang Sofsky Sacred Sayings By Wolfgang Sofsky: Even the most sacred things are not to be honored before the Devil has had
From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures. From all these extracts from the Bible I make no apology.William Holmes McGuffey Sacred Sayings By William Holmes McGuffey: From no source has the author drawn more conspicuously than from the sacred Scriptures.

I have met many sacred souls in reading.Lailah Gifty Akita Sacred Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: I have met many sacred souls in reading.
There is beauty in every incident of life; the true and the false, the wise and the foolish, are all one in the eye that beholds all without passion or prejudice: and the secret appears to lie not in the retirement from the world, but in keeping a part of oneself Vestal, sacred, intact, aloof from that self which makes contact with the external universe. In other words, in a separation of that which is and perceives from that which acts and suffers. And the art of doing this is really the art of being an artist. As a rule, it is a birthright; it may perhaps be attained by prayer and fasting; most surely, it can never be bought.Aleister Crowley Sacred Sayings By Aleister Crowley: There is beauty in every incident of life; the true and the false, the wise
Consider well. You would be breaking the ancient laws, and there are always consequences. Last winter, five went on a quest to save Artemis. Only three came back. Think on that. Three is a sacred number. There are three Fates, three Furies, three Olympian sons of Kronos. It is a good strong number that stands against many dangers. Four ... this is risky.Rick Riordan Sacred Sayings By Rick Riordan: Consider well. You would be breaking the ancient laws, and there are always consequences. Last
Things I learned from a man called "The Nazarene"
1- Being poor does not equal being miserable.
2- People will judge you, but their judgment should not define who you are.
3- Going against what others hold as true is not necessarily a bad thing.
4- Everyone is sacred.
5- Life is sometimes a lonely and dry place, like desert, but those times are there to help us meditate on what is truly important in our lives.
6- Complaining or getting angry because there is a storm in our lives solves nothing; embrace the storm and keep calm.
7- Treasure and protect the children of the world, they hold the key of what is pure and innocent; they are the way to freedom.
8- We are free to be who we want to be, it is our choice to be slaves or kings.
9- Fear nothing.
10- The person you don't like is also your neighbor.
11- The words following "I AM" define who we are, we must choose wisely.

There are certain songs that are sacred. People want to hear them just as they are in their head; they don't want you messing around with them. And then there are some other songs, if they've been around a long time in our set list, that I think we can take some creative liberties with.Keith Urban Sacred Sayings By Keith Urban: There are certain songs that are sacred. People want to hear them just as they
Neuroscience is fast developing the technical and conceptual wherewithal to reveal in fine, bare detail the neurobiological substrates of the mind. Perhaps it will despoil a sacred myth - the myth of selfhood and souls. And, if so, we may be wandering innocently into the opening phase of a dangerous game. Our ethics and systems of justice, our entire moral order, are founded on the notion of society as a collective of individual selves - autonomous, introspective, accountable agents. If this self-reflective, moral agent is revealed to be illusory, then what?Paul Broks Sacred Sayings By Paul Broks: Neuroscience is fast developing the technical and conceptual wherewithal to reveal in fine, bare detail
An ideal marriage is a true partnership between two imperfect people, each striving to complement the other, to keep the commandments, and to do the will of the Lord ["Our Sacred Duty to Honor Woman," Ensign, May 1999).Russel M. Nelson Sacred Sayings By Russel M. Nelson: An ideal marriage is a true partnership between two imperfect people, each striving to complement
The spirit of playful competition is, as a social impulse, older than culture itself and pervades all life like a veritable ferment. Ritual grew up in sacred play; poetry was born in play and nourished on play; music and dancing were pure play ... We have to conclude, therefore, that civilization is, in its earliest phases, played. It does not come from play ... it arises in and as play, and never leaves it.Johan Huizinga Sacred Sayings By Johan Huizinga: The spirit of playful competition is, as a social impulse, older than culture itself and
