Something about first love defies duplication. Before it, your heart is blank. Unwritten. After, the walls are left inscribed and graffitied. When it ends, no amount of scrubbing will purge the scrawled oaths and sketched images, but sooner or later, you find that there’s space for someone else, between the words and in the margins.
Purge me, oh Lord, though it be with fire. Burn up the chaff of vanity and self-indulgence, of hasty prejudice, second-hand dogmas husks which do not feed my soul, with which I cannot be content, of which I feel ashamed daily and if there be any grain of wheat in me, any word or thought or power of action which may be of use as seed for my nation after me, gather it, oh Lord, into Thy garner.
As this brook not only washes off impurities, but overwhelms them, so that they can no longer be found, even so Thy Divine mercy, and the stream of my Saviour's blood, not only Purge away, but extinguish my sins, sweeping them into the depths of the sea, where through all eternity they shall be remembered no more.christian scriver
Come Purge my soul, Thou Master of my days, Of vain and empty words, of idle ways, Of base ambition and the urge to rule; That hidden serpent that corrupts a fool; and grant me, Lord, to see my sins alone. That I not call my brother to atone; Make chaste my heart and lend me from above Thy fortitude, humility, and love.
It is God's purpose to save to save His people from their sins, to Purge out of them all hypocrisy, falsehood, injustice, and make of them honest men, true men, just men men created anew after His likeness. And this is the meaning of His salvation; and is the only salvation worth having, for this life or the life to come.
Scientologists also believe that 75 million years ago, an evil galactic warlord ... an evil warlord by the name of Xenu dumped 13 trillion aliens from different planets into the Earth's volcanoes and then vaporized them with H-Bombs. And the radioactive souls of these these poor, vaporized alien creatures continue to enter into our bodies implanting engrams and false ideas about Christ and God and psychiatry, and that's why we have to Purge ourselves of all of these engrams.
Day and night, Seed-time and harvest, heat and hoary frost Shall hold their course, till fire Purge all things new.john milton
Cheerfulness and good nature, Purge hatred and rancour.
I’ll Purge, and leave sack, and live cleanly.
Every book is like a Purge; at the end of it one is empty like a dry shell on the beach, waiting for the tide to come in again.Dame Daphne du Maurier
