A Quote by St. Isaac the Syrian on god, life, death, christianity, strength, victory, obedience, love, awakening, and success

Be dead in life, and you will not live in death.  Let your soul die strenuously, and not live in weakness.  Not only those who suffer death for the sake of faith in Christ are martyrs; but also those who die because of their observance of His commandments.

St. Isaac the Syrian

A Quote by Howard Zinn on civil disobedience, obedience, dictators, war, death, killings, poverty, starvation, jail, and theives

Civil disobedience. . . is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. .

Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem.

Howard Zinn

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on love, beauty, female, obedience, eve, and lilith

"The beauty of the female is the root of joy to the female as well as to the male, and it is no accident that the goddess of Love is older and stronger than the god.  To desire the desiring of her own beauty is the vanity of Lilith, but to desire the enjoying of her own beauty is the obedience of Eve, and to both it is in the lover that the beloved tastes her own delightfulness.  As obedience is the stairway of pleasure, so humility is the--"
