A Quote by Doris Lessing on eternity, men, men and women, money, nonsense, and women

Nonsense, it was all nonsense: this whole damned outfit, with its committees, its conferences, its eternal talk, talk, talk, was a great con trick; it was a mechanism to earn a few hundred men and women incredible sums of money.

Doris Lessing (1919 -)

A Quote by David N. Elkins on creativity, dance, eternity, force, life, energy, passion, and power

When we touch this domain, we are filled with the cosmic force of life itself, we sink our roots deep into the black soil and draw power and being up into ourselves. We know the energy of the numen and are saturated with power and being. We feel grounded, centered, in touch with the ancient and eternal rhythms of life. Power and passion well up like an artesian spring and creativity dances in celebration of life.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on birth, blessings, christ, darkness, death, eternity, fear, jesus, life, men, and soul

There is no cause to fear death; it is but an incident in life. It is as natural as birth. Why should we fear it? Some fear it because they think it is the end of life, and life often is the dearest thing we have. Eternal life is man's greatest blessing. If only men would "do his will" instead of looking hopelessly at the dark and gloomy tomb, they would turn their eyes heavenward and know that "Christ is risen!" With all my soul I know that death is conquered by Jesus Christ.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on careers, day, death, eternity, life, and sleep

To Him this earthly career is but a day, and its closing but the setting of life's sun; death, but a sleep, is followed by a glorious awakening in the morning of an eternal realm.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on death, divinity, eternity, family, inspiration, and possessions

The dearest possession a man has is his family. In the divine assurance that family ties may transcend the boundaries of death, and may continue throughout endless ages of eternity, I find supreme consolation and inspiration.

A Quote by Dante Alighieri on eternity, fashion, hypocrisy, and people

Here we see hypocrites, plodding forever around in their circle: And now we saw a people decked with paint, Who trod their circling way with tear and groan And slow, slow steps, seeming subdued and faint They all wore cloaks, with deep hoods forward thrown Over their eyes, and shaped in fashion quite Like the great cowls the monks wear at Cologne; Outwardly they were gilded dazzling bright, But all within was lead, and weighed thereby, King Frederick's copes would have seemed feather-light. O weary mantle for eternity! Once more we turned to the left, and by their side Paced on, intent upon their mournful cry.

A Quote by Daniel Webster on eternity, fear, god, justice, love, men, principles, time, and work

If we work upon marble, it will perish; If we work upon brass, time will efface it; If we rear temples, they will crumble to dust; But if we work upon men's immoral minds And imbue them with high principles, With the just fear of God and love of their fellow man; We engrave on those tablets something which no time can efface, And which will brighten and brighten to all eternity.

Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852)
