A Quote by Humphrey "Bogey" Bogart on miracles

Senor Ferrari: (To Rick Blaine) Might as well be frank, monsieur. It would take a miracle to get you out of Casablanca, and the Germans have outlawed miracles.

Jesus is the only one who can bring us to forgiveness. He waits for us to turn our hearts over to him; then he performs the healing, changing, finishing miracles.

A Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on change, exercise, expectation, god, men, miracles, necessity, power, silence, and wonder

If Spring came but once in a century, instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake, and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all hearts to behold the miraculous change! But now the silent succession suggests nothing but necessity. To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be miraculous and the perpetual exercise of God's power seems less wonderful than its withdrawal would be.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on inspiration, love, miracles, and past

It is strange to talk of miracles, revelations, inspiration, and the like, as things past, while love remains.

A Quote by Helen Steiner Rice on beauty, belief, creation, destruction, failure, god, heart, love, miracles, motherhood, mystery, pain, patience, sacrifice, secrets, understanding, and world

A mother's Love is something that no one can explain It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away... It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking... It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems... It is far beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest , brightest gems... It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, and it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation... A many-spendored miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

A Quote by Helen Steiner Rice on adversity, blessings, choice, day, difficulty, earth, god, heart, intention, mankind, miracles, observation, pain, purpose, serenity, soul, and understanding

ADVERSITY CAN DISTRESS US OR BLESS US The way we use adversity is strictly our own choice, For in God's Hands adversity can make the heart rejoice - For everything God sends to us, no matter in what form, Is sent with plan and purpose for by the fierceness of a storm The atmosphere is changed and cleared and the earth is washed and clean And the "high winds of adversity" can make restless souls serene - And while it's very difficult for mankind to understand God's intentions and His purpose and the workings of His Hand, If we observe the miracles that happen every day We cannot help but be convinced that in His wondrous way God makes what seemed unbearable and painful and distressing, Easily acceptable when we view it as a blessing.

A Quote by H. G. Dwight on certainty, day, memory, and miracles

Certain miracles that I beheld there have haunted my memory ever since: a gray April morning of sirocco, when the almond blossoms, the flaming tulips, the young green of the vines, hung as if painted on the motionless air; a summer night when the roses had an unearthly pallor under a half-eaten moon, whose ghostliness was somehow one with their perfume and with the phosphorescence of dew tipping their petals; a day when the trees stood part submerged in fog, into which leaves dropped slowly, slowly, one after another, and sank out of sight.

H. G. Dwight
