If we can embrace the adventure and risk and equip our churches to lay down their lives and abandon their inherent loss-aversion, who knows what innovation, what freshness, what new insights from the Spirit will emerge.
Savage was persistent, and his efforts met with success among other honors, the American Dialect Society named it their Most Outrageous Word of the Year. Since 2004, I'd wanted to use SANTORUM as soon as possible, and was happy to have the opportunity here. I think crosswords should embrace interesting neologisms, warts and all.
A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything.Gustav Mahler
Wert thou to open the heart of a single soul by helping him to embrace the Cause of Him Whom God shall make manifest, thine inmost being would be filled with the inspirations of that august Name. It devolveth upon you, therefore, to perform this task in the Days of Resurrection, inasmuch as most people are helpless, and wert thou to open their hearts and dispel their doubts, they would gain admittance into the Faith of God.báb
Unless the church is equipping believers to embrace the values and vision of the kingdom of God and turn away from the materialism, consumerism, greed, and power of the present age, it not only abandons its biblical mandate, it is rendered missionally ineffective.alan hirsch
It is like a wide embrace gathering all those who have long searched for words of hope… Saddened by the continual strife amongst believers of many confessions and wearied of their intolerance towards each other, I discovered in the Bahá'í teaching the real spirit of Christ so often denied and misunderstood.queen of romania marie of edinburgh
Speak not of guilt, speak not of responsibility. When the Regiment of the Senses parades by, with music, and with banners; when the senses shiver and shudder, it is only a fool and and an irreverent person that will keep his distance, who will not embrace the good cause, marching towards the conquest of pleasures and passions. All of morality’s laws – poorly understood and applied – are nil and cannot stand even for a moment, when the Regiment of the Senses parades by, with music, and with banners.constantine p. cavafy
The true rule, in determining to embrace, or reject any thing, is not whether it have any evil in it; but whether it have more of evil, than of good. There are few things wholly evil, or wholly good. Almost every thing, especially of governmental policy, is an inseparable compound of the two; so that our best judgment of the preponderance between them is continually demanded.
The real problem is how to get people to internally transform , from egocentric to sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness, which is the only stance that can grasp the global dimensions of the problem in the first place, and thus the only stance that can freely, even eagerly, embrace global solutions.ken wilber
Naked she lay, clasped in my longing arms, I filled with love, and she all over charms, Both equally inspired with eager fire, Melting through kindness, flaming in desire; With arms, legs, lips, close clinging to embrace.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
On ilk beugh till embrace Writtin in a bill was O Dowglass, O Dowglass Tender and trewe!richard holland
My loving children, my children who were created with God's beauty, my wise children, whatever difficulty you may have, do not ever leave His charge. Just as the prophets of God kept their faith firm and were tolerant in spite of the problems they had, no matter what difficulties you may experience, be tolerant, be forbearant and embrace all living things as your own life.bawa muhaiyaddeen
Andalways embrace things, people earthsky stars, as I do, freely and withthe appropriate sense of space.Frank O'Hara
Men standing in opposite hemispheres will converse and deride each other and embrace each other, and understand each other's language.leonardo da vinci
What he resists is not technology proper, but the propensity for us to confer upon technology a salvific function. Virilio, in other words, resists the mythologizing of technology, and he does so because it is precisely by idealizing technology that we come to unthinkingly embrace it.paul virilio
In all cases where incidental powers are acted upon, the principal and incidental ought to be congenial with each other, and partake of a common nature. The incidental power ought to be strictly subordinate and limited to the end proposed to be obtained by the specified power. In other words, under the name of accomplishing one object which is specified, the power implied ought not to be made to embrace other objects, which are not specified in the constitution.henry clay
Thy duty do? rejoined the voice, Ah, do it, do it, and rejoice; But shalt thou then, when all is done, Enjoy a love, embrace a beauty Like these, that may be seen and won In life, whose course will then be run; Or wilt thou be where there is none? I know not, I will do my duty.arthur hugh clough
All birth means separation from the All, the confinement within limitation, the separation from God, the pangs of being born ever anew. The return into the All, the dissolution of painful individuation, the reunion with God means the expansion of the soul until it is able once more to embrace the All.hermann hesse
One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity.steve maraboli
I hate the countrie's dirt and manners, yet I love the silence; I embrace the wit; A courtship, flowing here in full tide. But loathe the expense, the vanity and pride. No place each way is happy.William Habington
Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty .
Let us embrace, and from this very moment Vow an eternal misery together.thomas otway
Science is the best idea humans have ever had. The more people who embrace that idea, the better.Bill Nye
We must know, as much as possible, in our beautiful art...what we are talking about and the only way to know is to have lived and loved and cursed and floundered and enjoyed and suffered. I think I don't regret a single "excess" of my responsive youth I only regret, in my chilled age, certain occasions and possibilities I didn't embrace.
Once you have an innovation culture, even those who are not scientists or engineers - poets, actors, journalists - they, as communities, embrace the meaning of what it is to be scientifically literate... They don't fight science and they don't fight technology.neil degrasse tyson
1 Kalki ( talk · contributions ) 19:54, 30 December 2011 (UTC) I can agree with much of the portent of this statement, but actually tend to embrace theologies which believe the Ultimate Being ultimately forgives everyone their mortal flaws, deficiencies and apparent imperfections :;but that does not mean it is possible to pardon them and doing their best to avoid the worst of unpardonable errors and helping others to do the same is the responsibility of the wise. 2 Kalki 01:04, 27 December 2008 (UTC) . 2 InvisibleSun 20:51, 31 December 2008 (UTC) It is madness for any country to build its policy with an eye to nuclear war. ~ Leonid Brezhnev (born January 1)
embrace in one act the two truths thine own sin, and God's infinite mercy in Jesus Christ.
