A Quote by unknown on god, christianity, salvation, freedom, love, compassion, joy, slavery, and world

Thy pure image do we venerate, O good One, asking forgiveness of our sins, O Christ our God; for by Thine own will Thou didst ascend the Cross in Thy body, to save Thy creatures from the bondage of the enemy.  Thou hast verily filled all with joy, since Thou didst come, O our Savior, to save the world.

A Quote by Saint Dorotheos of Gaza on god, salvation, passions, habits, traps, suffering, evil, hell, delusion, and truth

Believe me, brethren, even if someone has just one passion as a habit, he will be subject to hell.  Even if we do ten good deeds and one bad one, the bad one outweighs the good.  It is like the eagle that is not captured by the snare, but only his claw is caught.  Because of this he is captured and loses all his strength.  Even if his whole body is outside the snare except just his claw can we say he has escaped?  Anytime he so desires, the person who has placed the trap can take him.  It is the same with the soul.  If it has one passion hardened into a habit, the enemy can cast it down anytime he wishes because he controls it through that passion.  It is for this reason that I will always tell you not to allow any passion to become a habit.

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, salvation, enlightenment, repentence, work, freedom, hope, christianity, tomorrow, and life

You have every opportunity, both eternal and external, for repentence and salvation, which is so rare in this day and age.  If you do not take advantage of this now, but keep putting off the work of salvation, you may easily fool yourself.  We cannot be certain that tomorrow belongs to us.  The Lord warns us all: be ready each minute, for you know not what day or what hour they will come for you.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on love, anxiety, panic, and salvation

Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.

A Quote by James Flecker on poetry, poety, soul, salvation, art, and writing

It is not the poet's business to save man's soul but to make it worth saving . . . However, few poets have written with a clear theory of art for art's sake, it is by that theory alone that their work has been, or can be, judged; -and rightly so if we remember that art embraces all life and all humanity, and sees in the temporary and fleeting doctrines of conservative or revolutionary only the human grandeur or passion that inspires them.

It's a relief, frankly, that in Buddhism, there is no self to save.

A Quote by White Eagle on kingdom of heaven, mankind, stillness, quiet, and salvation

Man has to learn to seek first the kingdom of heaven, the place of stillness and quiet at the highest level of which he is capable, and then the heavenly influences can pour into him, recreate him and use him for the salvation of mankind.
