eternity

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on effort, eternity, existence, and individuality

There is a totalitarian regime inside every one of us. We are ruled by a ruthless politburo which sets our norms and drives us from one five-year plan to another. The autonomous individual who has to justify his existence by his own efforts is in eternal bondage to himself.

Our journey had advanced; Our feet were almost come To that odd fork in Being's road, Eternity by term.

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on brevity, disobedience, eternity, existence, facts, future, justice, mortality, past, and temptation

This mortal probation is a brief period-just a short span, linking the eternity of the past with the eternity of the future. Yet it was to be a period of tremendous importance. It is, in fact, the most vital period of our entire eternal existence. In this mortal state we come face to face with innumerable temptations and pressures. Sometimes we come in contact with advocates of wrongdoing, disobedience, and sin. Lucifer is going about tempting those who can be tempted to see if he can lead them astray.

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on blessings, death, eternity, fatherhood, gifts, glory, guidance, honor, indifference, laws, life, mercy, merit, salvation, and time

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor "for ever and ever," or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby, by so doing, deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life. This life, then, is a time of "sifting," a time when the "wheat" is separated from the "chaff," a time of deciding who is who and where we will live after we die.

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on death, despair, eternity, melancholy, spirit, and words

And that dismal cry rose slowly And sank slowly through the air, Full of spirit's melancholy And eternity's despair; And they heard the words it said,- "Pan is dead! great Pan is dead! Pan, Pan is dead!"

A Quote by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross on brevity, death, eternity, light, peace, people, and stars

Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever.

A Quote by Elihu Burritt on eternity, existence, lies, and responsibility

It is an old saying, and one of fearful and fathomless import, that we are forming characters for eternity. Form- ing characters? Whose? Our own or others? Both-and in that momentous act lies the peril and responsibility of our existence.
