Adages & Proverbs

For intuitive and critical discussions, from spirituality to theological doctrines. Fair warning: because the subject matter is personal, moderation is strict.

I soooooooo get what Woody was saying.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant

My house says to me,
"Do not leave me for here dwells your past."
And the road says to me,
"Come and follow me, for I am your future."
And I say to both my house and the road,
If I stay here, there is a going in my staying;
And if I go, there is a staying in my going ..."
Kahlil Gibran


shivers....

You may forget the one with whom you have laughed ...
But never the one with whom you have wept.

Reminds me of the fact that we cannot forget a thing - get over a thing - until we have totally remembered it.

Be still my soul, thy God doth undertake,

To guide the future as He has the past,

Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake,

All now mysterious shall be bright at last,

Be still my soul, the waves and winds still know,

His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below

Amen

Here's a couple of good bits of advice from Levitucus, which I follow to the letter.


22 Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

23 Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.

Everyone, but everyone loves a little bit of genocide, especially on a Sunday.


Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.


Smite that ASS!!

This all makes invasion of another country so much more easy! You gotta love God, eh?
