A Quote by Andrew Linzey on beauty, creation, creativity, education, intuition, laws, obedience, understanding, virtue, and worth

Moral education, as I understand it, is not about inculcating obedience to law or cultivating self-virtue, it is rather about finding within us an ever-increasing sense of the worth of creation. It is about how we can develop and deepen our intuitive sense of beauty and creativity.

Andrew Linzey (1952 -)

A Quote by Alma P. Burton on authors, earth, eternity, experience, god, grief, happiness, joy, learning, obedience, salvation, satisfaction, sons, sorrow, suffering, and world

Even the Savior of the world, the Only Begotten Son of God, was obliged to come to earth and to take upon himself an earthly tabernacle. He experienced joy and sorrow, happiness and grief, lasting satisfaction and frequent disappointments. As Paul has written, "Though he were a Son yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him." Hebrews 5:8-9 KJV
