Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.
More Safe, and much more modest 'tis, to say God wou'd not leave Mankind without a way: And that the Scriptures, though not every where Free from Corruption, or intire, or clear, Are uncorrupt, sufficient, clear, intire, In all things which our needfull Faith require. If others in the same Glass better see 'Tis for Themselves they look, but not for me: For my Salvation must its Doom receive Not from what others , but what I believe.john dryden
The greatest of all the contributions of the Americanway of life to the Salvation of humanity.
Hors de Paris, il n'y a point de salut pour les honne" tes gens. Outside of Paris, there is no Salvation for gentlemen.Jean Baptiste Poquelin Molière
"The unsound convert takes Christ by halves. He is all for the Salvation of Christ, but is not for sanctification. He is for the privileges, but does not appropriate the person of Christ."joseph alleine
The only Salvation for us is to stop being an incoherent, loose mob and to change into a strongly organized, disciplined army.roman dmowski
The very act of faith by which we receive Christ is an act of the utter renunciation of self, and all its works, as a ground of Salvation. It is really a denial of self, and a grounding of its arms in the last citadel into which it can be driven, and is, in its principle, inclusive of every subsequent act of self-denial by which sin is forsaken or overcome.mark hopkins
It appears to me that, even within the recollection of living men, the Christian faith has come to be less and less regarded as a commanding and mighty power from heaven, a voice of authority, a law of holy life, but more and more as an easy going guide to future enjoyment, to a universal happiness and an indiscriminate Salvation.frederic dan huntington
If help and Salvation are to come they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.maria montessori
We are supposedly a country at war, but we’re all going about watching American Idol and having not all that different a time than if we weren’t at war. I observe the weird juxtaposition of reading the newspaper and then tuning into American Idol and getting really upset when Constantine gets voted off and then wondering where my head was at. But in a way, that’s also the Salvation of the country, our level of optimism.
If it is true to say of the lazy that they kill time, then it is greatly to be feared that an era which sees its Salvation in public opinion, this is to say private laziness, is a time that really will be killed: I mean that it will be struck out of the history of the true liberation of life. How reluctant later generations will be to have anything to do with the relics of an era ruled, not by living men, but by pseudo-men dominated by public opinion.friedrich nietzsche
Counting is the religion of this generation it is its hope and its Salvation.Gertrude Stein
For Jews, the Messiah has never come; for Christians, He has come but once; for modern man, He appears and disappears with increasing rapidity. The saviors of modern man, the "scientists" who promise Salvation through the "discoveries" of ethology and sociology, psychology and psychiatry, and all the other bogus religions, issue forth periodically, as if selected by some Messiah-of-the-Month Club.thomas szasz
When at the time of awarding, men, with the help of truth , shall vanquish the lie ; When deception and untruth - for long decried – of false gods and men, stand exposed, Then at the time of Salvation , there, shall be full adoration of Thy Glory.
For the first time in human history, the Buddha admonished, entreated and appealed to people not to hurt a living being, and it is not necessary to offer prayer, praise or sacrifice to gods. With all the eloquence at his command the Buddha vehemently proclaimed that gods are also in dire need of Salvation themselves.
The waters of Salvation, welling forth from the mercy-seat above, have descended in copious floods fo refresh and bless the earth. And will you refuse to drink of the river of life which flows full and free before you, proffering health and gladness to your famished soul, because you cannot discover every thing pertaining to its source, far, far away in the recesses of the Eternal Mind?
Surely we may hope that as men get to see that prayer has not succeeded in its efforts to "move the arm which moves the world , to bring Salvation down, they may turn to the more difficult, but also the more hopeful task, of moving their own arms to work out for their own Salvation.
To be unselfish, perfectly selfless , is Salvation itself; for the man within dies, and God alone remains.
Well has it been said that man is the only animal that naturally looks upwards; every other animal naturally looks down. That looking upward and going upward and seeking perfection are what is called Salvation; and the sooner a man begins to go higher, the sooner he raises himself towards this idea of truth as Salvation.
For a woman , all resurrection , all Salvation, from whatever perdition , lies in love ; in fact, it is her only way to it.
A mighty fortress is our God , A sword and shield victorious ; He breaks the cruel oppressors rod And wins Salvation glorious .
Everyone must work out his own Salvation.
...Both hold the view [ Jain sects of Svetambara and Digambara Jains] hold the view that only human beings can get Salvation; gods and other beings which are capable of getting Salvation according to other Indian systems, do not have it according to Jaina-teachings. They have to be born again as human beings when they become mature for this highest spiritual development to be able to accomplish complete absolution from all earthly passions .
Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own Salvation. When there was need to observe the Law, they trampled it under foot. … On this account Stephen said: "You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart, you always resist the Holy Spirit", not only by transgressing the Law but also by wishing to observe it at the wrong time.
Locke had illegitimately selected those parts of man he needed for his social contract and suppressed all the rest, a theoretically unsatisfactory procedure and a practically costly one. The bourgeois is the measure of the price paid, he who most of all cannot afford to look to his real self, who denies the existence of the thinly boarded-over basement in him, who is most made over for the purposes of a society that does not even promise him perfection or Salvation but merely buys him off.Allan Bloom
I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of Salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of Salvation.
It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in self-destruction of the human race. At this supremely dangerous moment in human history , the only way of Salvation is the ancient Hindu way. Here we have the attitude and spirit that can make it possible for the human race to grow together in to a single family.
