A Quote by Miguel de Guevara on body, death, fear, heaven, hell, insults, and love

I am not moved, Lord, to love Thee Because of that Heaven Thou has promised me. Nor am I so moved by that fearful Hell, That I would stop offending Thee. But seeing Thee, nailed to a cross and ridiculed, That moves me. Seeing Thy body so wounded . . . That moves me. Thy insults and Thy death . . . That moves me. In the end, it is Thy love that moves me. For though there were no Heaven, I would love Thee. And though there were no Hell, I would fear Thee.

Miguel de Guevara

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on dance, heart, identity, insults, joy, kindness, nature, and speech

An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy. . . . One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Melinda Shore on curiosity, facts, forgiveness, insults, judgment, order, questions, and stupidity

I'm not intending to imply insult or judgment here but I am curious to know in order to be able to respond to your posts in an appropriate manner, so please forgive what appears to be, but in fact is not intended as, an insulting question: Are you stupid?

A Quote by Lizzy Gardiner on awards, gold, insults, and justice

Wore a dress made of American Express gold cards to the Academy Awards. I was looking for an American symbol. A Coca-Cola bottle or a Mickey Mouse would have been ridiculous, doing anything with the American flag would have been insulting, and Cadillac hub caps were just too uncomfortable.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on creation, good, influence, insults, mankind, pleasure, and wishes

He who wishes to exert a useful influence must be careful to insult nothing. Let him not be troubled by what seems absurd, but concentrate his energies to the creation of what is good. He must not demolish, but build. He must raise temples where mankind may come and partake of the purest pleasure.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

A Quote by Jim Copeland on failure, fear, insults, laughter, and rest

It's not fear of striking out that makes me reluctant to step up to the plate. It's the fear of getting hit in the head by a 90 mph fastball, the pitcher coming off of the mound to stomp me with her cleats while I am down, the rest of the opposing team rushing out of the dugout hurling insults as they kick me and spit on me, while all along the crowd in the stands is cheering them on and laughing at my failure. So, no, it's not the fear of striking out that keeps me from stepping up to the plate.

A Quote by Jayne Loader on audiences, belief, god, insults, intelligence, and needs

We believed - and I personally still believe - that the so called Voice of God narration, ubiquitous in documentaries destined for PBS, is insulting to the audience. If you believe in the intelligence of your audience, you don't need to tell them what to think and how to process the material they're seeing.

A husband should not insult his wife publicly, at parties. He should insult her in the privacy of the home.
