A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on courage, fear, force, heroism, tears, and vices

Neither fear nor courage saves us. Unnatural vices Are fathered by our heroism. Virtues Are forced upon us by our impudent crimes. These tears are shaken from the wrath-bearing tree.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)

A Quote by Studs Terkel on children, christ, defense, funny, history, jobs, plants, soldiers, tears, time, tragedy, war, women, and world

The history of those who shed those other tears, the history of those anonymous millions, is what Terkel wants readers and listeners to come away with. What's it like to be that goofy little soldier, scared stiff, with his bayonet aimed at Christ? What's it like to have been a woman in a defense-plant job during World War II? What's it like to be a kid at the front lines? It's all funny and tragic at the same time.

A Quote by Steve Borello on god, greatness, heaven, life, reality, and tears

God So, where is he? In the heavens above? I see the sky so blue What do you see? Do you feel him? I feel the sun As it warms my blood, The wind as it cools my skin The rain, so quenching my thirst So who's reality is it? It's the reality of God It is his breath that cools me As it beckons you on His tears quench my thirst As it resolves your inadequacies His greatness warms my blood So too, grants you life ever after He is for me. . . .

The rose is fairest when 't is budding new, And hope is brightest when it dawns from fears. The rose is sweetest wash'd with morning dew, And love is loveliest when embalm'd in tears.
