A Quote by The Bible on being a man, manhood, integrity, power, vitality, virility, the unnameable, joy, joy of life, creation, defiance, strength, and vigor

Look now: the Beast that I made:
he eats grass like a bull.
Look: the power in his thighs
the pulsing sinews in his belly.
His penis stiffens like a pine;
his testicles bulge with vigor.
His ribs are bars of bronze,
his bones iron beams.
He is first of the works of God,
created to be my plaything.
He lies under the lotus,
hidden by reeds and shadows.
He is calm though the river rages,
though the torrent beats against his mouth.
Who then will take him by the eyes
or pierce his nose with a peg?
Will you catch the Serpent with a fishhook
or tie his tongue with a thread?
Will you pass a string through his nose
or crack his jaw with a pin?
Will he plead with you for mercy
and timidly beg your pardon?
Will he come to terms of surrender
and promise to be your slave?
Will you play with him like a sparrow
or put him on a leash for your girls?
Will merchants bid for his carcass
and parcel him out to shops?
Will you riddle his skin with spears,
split his head with harpoons?
Go ahead: attack him:
you will never try it again.

A Quote by James Hillman on death, inquiry, and vitality

The idea of death robs inquiry of its passionate vitality and empties our efforts of their purpose by coming to one predestined conclusion, death. Why inquire if you already know the answer?

A Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma on beauty, aliveness, interest, challenge, juice, vitality, passion, cells, morning, and a loving moment

Aliveness is energy. It's the juice,the vitality, and the passion that wakes up our cells every morning. It's what makes us want to dance. It's the energy that moves a relationship from the status quo to something grander and much more expansive, something that makes our hearts beat faster, our minds, and our eyes open wider than ever before. Everything is of interest to a person who is truly alive, whether it's a challenge, a loving moment, a bucket of grief, or a glimpse of beauty.

A Quote by Martha Graham on vitality, unique, and channel

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is
translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you
in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will
 never exist through any other medium and be lost.  The world will not
 have it.  It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how
 valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions.  It is your
 business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel
 open.... You have to keep open and aware directly to the urge that
 motivates you.  Keep the channel open.

A Quote by unknown on divinity, experience, god, gold, secrets, spirit, and vitality

Get at the root of things: The gold mines of the scriptures are not the topsoil; you must open a shaft. The precious diamonds of experience are not picked up in the roadway; their secret places are far down. Get down into the vitality, the solidity, the veracity, the divinity of the Word of God, and seek to possess with it the inward workings of the Spirit.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on labor and vitality

Our forebears labored without wages. They made cotton "king." And yet out of a bottomless vitality, they continued to thrive and develop.
