driving

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on driving and writing

I sometimes think that writing is like driving sheep down a road. If there is any gate to the left or right, the readers will most certainly go into it.

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on belief, body, creativity, driving, god, imagination, lies, life, management, pleasure, soul, and present

The faint, far-off results of those energies which God's creative rapture implanted in matter when He made the worlds are what we now call physical pleasures; and even thus filtered, they are too much for our present management. What would it be to taste at the fountainhead of that stream of which even these lower reaches prove so intoxicating? Yet that, I believe, is what lies before us. As St. Augustine said, the rapture of the saved soul will "flow over" into the glorified body. In the light of our present specialized and depraved appetites, we cannot imagine this [torrent of pleasure], and I warn everyone most seriously not to try. But it must be mentioned, to drive out thoughts even more misleading - thoughts that what is saved is a mere ghost, or that the risen body lives in numb insensibility. The body is made for the Lord, and these dismal fancies are wide of the mark.

A Quote by Hugh Stevenson Tigner on belief, circumstances, and driving

The most important thing about a man is what he believes in the depth of his being. This is the thing that makes him what he is, the thing that organizes him and feeds him; the thing that keeps him going in the face of untoward circumstances; the thing that gives him resistance and drive.

A Quote by Herb Brody on assumptions, automobiles, driving, future, and past

Telling the future by looking at the past assumes that conditions remain constant. This is like driving a car by looking in the rear view mirror.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on driving, home, satisfaction, and work

Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction - a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the muse.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on driving and life

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms. . . .

A Quote by Henry Beston on beauty, civilization, driving, fear, mystery, and serenity

Our civilization has fallen out of touch with night. With lights, we drive the holiness and beauty of night back to the forests and the sea; the little villages, the crossroads even, will have none of it. Are modern folk, perhaps, afraid of night? Do they fear that vast serenity, the mystery of infinite space, the austerity of stars?

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.

A Quote by Helen Lee Goates on day, driving, fatherhood, justice, needs, women, and work

I don't always kneel when I pray. My prayers fly heavenward all day long-while I bake or drive or comfort. I mean no disrespect Heavenly Father, I just need him constantly while the work of woman goes on.
