"You never reach the promised land. You can march towards it."
View quotes by James Callaghan

'Is it easy to love God?' asks an old author. 'It is easy,' he replies, 'to those who do it.' I have included two Graces under the word Charity. But God can give a third. He can awake in man, towards Himself, a supernatural Appreciative love. This is of all gifts the most to be desired. Here, not in our natural loves, nor even in ethics, lies the true centre of all human and angelic life. With this all things are possible.
View quotes by C S Lewis

Standing, as I do, in view of God and eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone (On the eve of her execution)

View quotes by Elias Canetti

Contemplative and bookish men must of necessity be more quarrelsome than others, because they contend not about matter of fact, nor can determine their controversies by any certain witnesses, nor judges. But as long as they go towards peace, that is Truth, it is no matter which way.
View quotes by John Donne

The trend is towards the bourgeois-smug.
View quotes by Gunter Grass

Towards the end of the race my helmet strap started to work loose and my helmet was lifting down the straights, which was pulling the strap tight against my throat and choking me. I had to drive one-handed for most of the time. I couldn't breathe very well. It was just more worrying than anything else. I was just slightly pulling it down to get more air in.
View quotes by Jensen Button

I've never really tried to prove myself... I don't think I am like a great actress. I think I am working towards trying to be better.
