A Quote by Norman R. Augustine on cities, daughters, driving, family, logic, perception, problems, solution, technology, and trying

Too often technology is perceived as the problem rather than the solution; as something to be avoided rather than embraced. This is about as logical as my daughter's observing, while our family was driving through an unfamiliar city, "Trying to read a map while driving causes all the traffic lights to turn green."

Norman R. Augustine (1935 -)

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on corruption, daughters, divinity, god, love, mercy, power, prophets, salvation, sons, spirit, understanding, vices, and worth

. . . Our God is a God of love. He waits with open arms, and the unfolding of His merciful plan of salvation is not only therefore the mark of divine power but also the mark of God's relentless, redeeming love. It is a point well worth pondering because, among other reasons, it will help us to understand better why God, through the prophets, denounces sin and corruption in such scalding terms. He loves all of us, His spirit sons and daughters, but hates our vices. His denunciation of those vices may, if we are not careful, seem to obscure the enormous and perfect love He has for us.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on america, birth, brothers, christ, daughters, freedom, heart, hope, inspiration, loyalty, sons, spirit, and work

America experiences a new birth of freedom in her sons and daughters; she incarnates the spirit of her martyred chief. Their loyalty is repledged; their devotion renewed to the work He left unfinished. My heart throbs anew in the hope that inspired by the example of Lincoln, imbued with the spirit of Christ, they will cast down the last barrier to perfect freedom. And I with my brother of blackest hue possessing at last my rightful heritage and holding my head erect, may stand beside the Saxon - a Negro - and yet a man!

A Quote by Louis L'Amour on children, daughters, day, time, and writing

One day I was speeding along at the typwriter, and my daughter - who was a child at the time - asked me, "Daddy, why are you writing so fast?" And I replied, "Because I want to see how the story turns out!"
