A Quote by Franklin H. Littell on betrayal, church, people, security, and world

The Church, rightly conceived, is the whole covenant people called to serve in the world. The clergy are also part of the laity, and their true function is to help equip the laity to be the Servant People. If they turn aside to rule and to secure their own status, they have betrayed the calling of the special ministry.

A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on betrayal, contentment, deception, enemies, and friendship

To be deceived by our enemies or betrayed by our friends in insupportable; yet by ourselves we are often content to be so treated.

A Quote by Don Bassingthwaite on betrayal, darkness, friendship, police, secrets, and trust

There was too much noise. Sirens from police cars and ambulances. Shouts from the crowd on the street eighteen floors below. Traffic from other streets and all of the noises of San Francisco. Mostly, though, there were the voices. Whispering to him. Reminding him of the dark things he had done - all of the little things he had forgotten, all of the big things he had tried to forget. Mostly they reminded him of his biggest secret, a betrayal of trust and friendship long ago. He squeezed his eyes shut as if that could somehow keep the voices away.

A Quote by Angel Abrea on betrayal, criticism, faith, fatherhood, friendship, impatience, journeys, life, patience, travel, and path

When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee."

A Quote by Alfred Armand Montapert on absence, betrayal, confidence, fear, friendship, needs, sincerity, and present

A FRIEND IS A PERSON . . . With whom you can be sincere. . . . To whom you never need to defend yourself. . . . On whom you can depend whether present or absent. . . . With whom you never need pretend. . . . To whom you can reveal yourself without fear of betrayal. . . . Who does not feel she owns you because you are her friend. . . . Who will not selfishly use you because she has your confidence. I WOULD HAVE SUCH A FRIEND. . . AND I WOULD BE SUCH A FRIEND. I DO HAVE SUCH A FRIEND! ~ Y-O-U ~

Alfred Montapert (1906 -)
