sister

A Quote by Jane Austen on existence, frustration, nonsense, people, senses, sister, and stupidity

In a letter from Bath to her sister, Cassandra, one senses her frustration at her sheltered existence, Tuesday, 12 May 1801. Another stupid party . . . with six people to look on, and talk nonsense to each other.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817)

A Quote by Hugh W. Pinnock on brothers, children, forgiveness, heroism, home, justice, love, parenthood, problems, sister, and success

A successful home is based on the love and helpfulness of children just as it is based on loving parents handling their responsibilities. ... Be eager to forgive when problems arise at home. Help with your younger brothers and sisters when needed. You are their hero.

Hugh W. Pinnock (1934 - 2000)

A Quote by Hugh B. Brown on belief, birth, children, creation, death, doubt, enemies, environment, existence, fatherhood, fear, god, home, ideas, life, men, mind, motherhood, needs, preparation, sister, spirituality, wonder, and world

Some men fear death, and sometimes they feel that it is an awful enemy; there are those who say they do not believe there is anything beyond the grave, that they think death ends conscious existence. I doubt very much if any man really believes that, as the idea of complete annihilation is one that cannot be entertained by the mind of man, when referring to himself. But men say they are afraid of that other world because they don't know much about it; they don't know what it will be like; and they fear the unknown. But really, brethren and sisters, do we not know as much about the world into which we are going as we knew about this one when we came into it? If an unborn babe could speak and it should be told that it must be bom into an unknown world, it would doubtless say, "I must not be separated from my mother or I will die. I depend upon her for my life. I must not be bom, as you call it, for that would be death," and yet, we know that if the child were not bom in due course it would die. The remarkable thing is that when it is bom the little child finds itself possessed of faculties and organs that begin to function only after birth-organs which were in process of creation during the pre-natal period but not intended to function until after birth. How wise our Heavenly Father is in making provision for the unborn babe to come into an environment where it can feel at home, and where its every need has been anticipated. I wonder whether we are now preparing-in this figuratively speaking pre-natal life-to be bom into the new and more glorious world. When we are born into that life, I think we shall find that God has prepared us for that birth-we shall find ourselves possessed of spiritual organs, so to speak, which will function fully as we become adapted to a purely spiritual environment. Then we shall refer to that transition as birth, not death. I am sure that he who made provision for our coming here has made provision for our going there.

Sister, you're trying to keep me alive as an old curiosity, but I'm done, I'm finished, I'm going to die. [Spoken to his nurse.]

A Quote by Folliott S. Pierpont on beauty, birth, brothers, children, church, day, earth, friendship, glory, harmony, heart, joy, lies, love, mind, parenthood, praise, purity, sacrifice, sister, and wonder

1. For the beauty of the earth, For the glory of the skies; For the love which from our birth, Over and around us lies; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 2. For the wonder of each hour, Of the day and of the night; Hill and vale and tree and flow'r, Sun and moon, and stars of light; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 3. For the joy of ear and eye, For the heart and mind's delight; For the mystic harmony, Linking sense to sound and sight; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 4. For the joy of human love, Brother, sister, parent, child; Friends on Earth and friends above, For all gentle thoughts and mild; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. 5. For Thy church that evermore, Lifteth holy hands above; Off'ring up on ev'ry shore, Her pure sacrifice of love; Lord of all, to Thee we raise This, our hymn of grateful praise. Amen.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on brothers, confession, god, humility, life, people, pride, service, and sister

The antidote for pride is humility - meekness, submissiveness. . . . God will have a humble people. Either we can choose to be humble or we can be compelled to be humble. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by conquering enmity toward our brothers and sisters, esteeming them as ourselves, and lifting them as high or higher than we are. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by receiving counsel and chastisement, . . . by forgiving those who have offended us, . . . by rendering selfless service, . . . by going on missions and preaching the word that can humble others, . . . by getting to the temple more frequently, [and] by confessing and forsaking our sins and being born of God. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by loving God, adjusting our will to His, and putting Him first in our lives.
