Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking. Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making.
"I can't love it - what is there to love? It can't love me - or you either; it can't understand a single word you say to it, or feel one spark of gratitude for all your kindness. Wait till it can show some little affection for me, and then I'll see about loving it. At present it is nothing more than a little selfish, senseless sensualist, and if you see anything adorable in it, it's all very well - I only wonder how you can."anne brontë
You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people. That is a lie... God looks down and says, "I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you," and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says, "Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you." This is a miracle.mark driscoll
And so the blasts of calumny, howl they ever so fiercely over the good man's head, contribute to his juster appreciation and to his wider fame. Preserve only a good conscience toward God, and a loving purpose toward your fellow men, and you need not wince nor tremble, though the pack of the spaniel-hearted hounds snarl at your heels.william morley punshon
Wouldn`t it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and a little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe we'd like each other a little bit more.judy garland
To Mom, Dad, Craig and all of my special friends: Thank-you for loving me and always making me feel good about myself.michelle obama
"The Average Soccer Mom... Let me tell you smug little video game nitwits something. "Soccer moms," which is a pejorative term to describe loving American mothers who do everything they can to nurture and protect their kids, know more about life, more about parenting and its responsbilities, than Dennis McCauley and all of his sycophants here. "Soccer Moms" whom McCauley denigrates here, are holding this country together despite the masturbatory preoccupations of "Video Gamer Nation." How disgusting. Jack Thompsonjack thompson
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.Lao-Tzu
Education is impossible without love, without loving a few of the great men of the past.
Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.benedict of nursia
Happiness is having a loving, close knit family in another city.george burns
A genuine faith lifts us above the bitterness of grief; a sense of Christ's living presence takes away all unbearable loneliness even when we are most alone. In our darkest hours, to know that our lost friend is still living, still loving us, still ours, in the highest and best sense, must be unspeakably consoling.arthur kenney
And so among the ruins of our pride, we grow to be loving children of the Most High.william mountford
Argument almost always leaves behind a sore feeling in the heart of the one who has been worsted. By loving teaching, by Christ-like living, we are to win this people for our Lord. They do not understand what disinterested love and unselfishness mean: you are to go and live it amont them.james hudson taylor
I remember loving sound before I ever took a music lesson. And so we make our lives by what we love.john cage
Selfish persons are incapable of loving others, but they are not capable of loving themselves either.Erich Fromm
"now you play the loving woman, I play the faithful man"Bruce Springsteen
So mild, so merciful, so strong, so good, So patient, peaceful, loyal, loving, pure.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
By them there sat the loving pelican, Whose young ones, poison'd by the serpent's sting, With her own blood to life again doth bring.Michael Drayton
A heart renewed a loving heart a penitent and humble heart a heart broken and contrite, purified by love that and only that is the rest of men. Spotlessness may do for angels, repentance unto life is the highest that belongs to man.
God is all love, and the more we are like Him the more we shall love; the trouble is not in the quantity but the quality of our love. If it were wholly pure, wholly unselfish, it could not be too deep or intense; for all true loving lifts us to a higher plane, bringing us nearer to God and the eternal goodness.
I saw that God rejoiceth that He is our Father , and God rejoiceth that He is our Mother , and God rejoiceth that He is our Very Spouse and our soul is His loved Wife. And Christ rejoiceth that He is our Brother, and Jesus rejoiceth that He is our Saviour. These are five high joys, as I understand, in which He willeth that we enjoy; Him praising, Him thanking, Him loving, Him endlessly blessing.
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.oscar wilde
Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea Some say he was a prisoner who never was set free Lost upon the ocean he died there in the mist Dreaming of a kiss Bitter Green they called her walking in the sun loving everyone that she met Bitter Green they called her waiting in the sun Waiting for someone to take her homegordon lightfoot
