I saw this quote and thought of my last post....it sums up the whole post...“No Army can stop an idea whose time has come.” - Victor Hugo
'What' and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening
as words come. But put
them together side-by-side and they
have the power to haunt you for the
rest of your life: ‘What if?'..."
"I don't know how your story ended.
But I know that if what you felt
then was love - true love - then
it's never too late. If it was true
then why wouldn't it be true
now? You need only the courage to
follow your heart..."
"I don't know what a love like that
feels like... a love to leave loved
ones for, a love to cross oceans
for... but I'd like to believe if I
ever felt it. I'd have the courage
to seize it. I hope you had the
courage to seize it, Claire. And if
you didn't, I hope one day that you
DEVIL:Ramirez: You're never going to get these people to see themselves as they really are, 'cause it's the lies that we tell ourselves, they introduce us to him.
Ramirez: After my mother would finish her story, she would always comfort us. "Don't worry," she'd say. "If the Devil is real, then God must be real, too."
Lucius Hunt: Are you upset you can't see?
Ivy Walker: I see the world Lucius Hunt, not as you see it.
Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night
Ivy Walker: Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others won't know we want to do them.
Lucius Hunt: Do you not wish you had your sight?
Ivy Walker: I see the world, Lucius Hunt. Just not as you see it.
August Nicholson: We cannot run from heartache... Heartache is a part of life. We know that now.
I am so excited!!!!! There is a bookumentory coming out soon on N.D.Wilson's "Notes from a tilt-a-whirl". I am so excited about it! I love N.D.Wilson's book on this and his out look on life. It will be such a beautiful mix of cinematography and theology and many other things! I totally encourage you to watch it when it comes out.
"Don't tell me to question authority, and then get upset when I question your authority."N.D.Wilson
"Faith is hard… but faith brings with it the only possibility of peace and joy in this world— the only possibility of laughter on this mad, mad ride."
"Do not resent your place in the story. Do not imagine yourself elsewhere. Do not close your eyes and picture a world without thorns, without shadows, without hawks. Change this world. Use your body like a tool meant to be used up, discarded, and replaced. Better every life you touch. We will reach the final chapter. When we have eyes that can stare into the sun, eyes that only squint for the Shekinah, then we will see laughing children pulling cobras by their tails, and hawks and rabbits playing tag."
"...At that very end you should know that living really does make dying worth it"
Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal. Highway or side streets. Kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It's the best anyone can do.
