sacred

A Quote by Philip Doddridge on day, god, pleasure, preachers, sacred, and present

Live while you live, the epicure would say, And seize the pleasures of the present day; Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries, And give to God each moment as it flies. Lord, in my views, let both united be: I live in pleasure when I live to thee.

A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on god, painting, power, and sacred

Something sacred, that's it. We ought to be able to say that such and such a painting is as it is, with its capacity for power, because it is "touched by God."

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on admiration, body, fashion, fatherhood, protest, sacred, sons, and women

I thank the Father that His Only Begotten Son did not say in defiant protest at Calvary, "My body is my own!" I stand in admiration of women today who resist the "fashion of abortion, by refusing to make the sacred womb a tomb!"

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)

A Quote by Mircea Eliade on awareness, reality, sacred, and world

Man becomes aware of the Sacred because it manifests itself, shows itself, as something wholly different from the Profane . . . In his encounters with the Sacred, man experiences a reality that does not belong to our world yet is encountered in and through objects or events that are part of the world.

A Quote by Mircea Eliade on sacred

in

The sacred tree, the sacred stone are not adored as stone or tree; they are worshipped precisely because they are hierophanies, because they show something that is no longer stone or tree but sacred, the ganz andere or 'wholly other.'

A Quote by Meister Eckhart on divinity, kindness, power, sacred, sleep, and work

The kind of work we do does not make us holy, but we can make it holy. However "sacred" a calling may be, as it is a calling, it has no power to sanctify; but rather as we are and have the divine being within, we bless each task we do, be it eating, or sleeping, or watching, or any other.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on children, christianity, constitution, day, democracy, dreams, fatherhood, god, independence, nations, reality, and sacred

One day the South will know that when these disinherited children of God sat down at lunch counters they were in reality standing up for the best in the American dream and the most sacred values in our Judaeo-Christian heritage, and thusly, carrying our whole nation back to those great wells of democracy which were dug deep by the founding fathers in the formulation of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
