destruction

A Quote by Reginald John Campbell on change, destruction, evil, experience, god, good, joy, love, metaphor, opposites, sorrow, and speech

It is no strain of metaphor to say that the love of God and the wrath of God are the same thing, described from opposite points of view. How we shall experience it depends upon the way we shall come up against it: God does not change; it is man's moral state that changes. The wrath of God is a figure of speech to denote God's unchanging opposition to sin; it is His righteous love operating to destroy evil. It is not evil that will have the last word, but good; not sorrow, but joy; not hate, but love.

Reginald John Campbell (1867 - ?)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on body, destruction, and garden

A garden is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coat-skirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg, and his whole body to irresistible destruction.

A Quote by Rachel Louise Carson on attitude, destruction, indifference, plants, and reason

Our attitude towards plants is a singularly narrow one. If we see any immediate utility in a plant we foster it. If for any reason we find its presence undesirable or merely a matter of indifference, we may condemn it to destruction forthwith.

A Quote by Pope Pius XII on achievement, destruction, difficulty, evolution, experience, justice, men, revolution, salvation, and violence

Salvation and justice are not to be found in revolution, but in evolution through concord. Violence has ever achieved only destruction, not construction; the kindling of passions, not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction, not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord.
