A Quote by Jim Croce on eternity, wishes, bottle, true, with you, and words

If I had time in a bottle,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save everyday for eternity passes,
And then I would spend them with you.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, life, christianity, eternity, value, commitment, and spirituality

What may be the significance of so many forms of "spirituality" on this planet that are antagonistic to "life" -- and Christianity at the head of that list, with its "calumny" against life, its faith that just because nothing in life is eternal therefore life itself contains no value, nothing that makes it worth living, investing our souls in, committing our consciences to?

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on higher self, lower self, ego, goal, realization, realized, self-realized, unitive, god, eternity, doubt, truth, no self, beyond self, mind, christian, christianity, christ, and religion


Whoever was responsible for the idea of dividing self into lower and higher parts committed a serious crime against humanity. This division has given rise to the notion that the lower (ego and immature) self must be overcome while the higher (unitive and whole) self must be sought as the goal of human realization. Out of ignorance, I too clung to this notion because I believed it was this higher self that would be united with God for all eternity. It took a long time before my experiences led me to doubt this conviction and, at the same time, let in the possibility that this was not the whole truth and that there was still further to go.

A Quote by Robin T Quinn on god, ageless, changing, forms, eternity, universe, and one

All things that exist are the same age as God, ageless. Everything that exists has always existed, simply changing forms throughout eternity. Nothing has ever been added to, or taken away from, the Universe. God and the Universe are One in the same.

A Quote by John Donne on death, eternity, pictures, and soul

Death be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not soe,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill mee.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

John Donne (1572 - 1631)

A Quote by Joanna Russ on faith, intention, future, eternity, time, and now

Faith is not contrary to the usual ideas, something that turns out to be right or wrong, like a gambler's bet: it's an act, an intention, a project, something that makes you, in leaping into the future, go so far, far, far ahead that you shoot clean out of time and right into Eternity, which is not the end of time or a whole lot of time or unending time, but timelessness, the old Eternal Now
