The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I would call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man.

A Quote by Gene Hill on affection, dogs, honesty, love, meaning, and understanding

Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he's owned a dog. He can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes.

A Quote by Frederick Ward Kates on christianity, eternity, existence, fatherhood, god, history, jesus, knowledge, life, love, meaning, men, obedience, personality, personality, understanding, and virtue

The Christian clearly understands that Jesus does not reveal all that is signified by the word "God," but only as much as could be revealed through a perfect human personality living in absolute obedience to God's will. The knowledge of God that men have by virtue of Jesus' revelation is quite enough for men to live by in this life, and to live gloriously and thankfully by, Christians maintain - the knowledge that God the Creator, the Almighty and Eternal, the Lord of history, is man's Heavenly Father, and that love might well be, and indeed is, the ultimate meaning of human existence.
