world

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on existence, god, mercy, poetry, and world

INCOMPOSSIBLE, adj. Unable to exist if something else exists. Two things are incompossible when the world of being has scope enough for one of them, but not enough for both - as Walt Whitman's poetry and God's mercy to man.

A Quote by Alma P. Burton on authors, earth, eternity, experience, god, grief, happiness, joy, learning, obedience, salvation, satisfaction, sons, sorrow, suffering, and world

Even the Savior of the world, the Only Begotten Son of God, was obliged to come to earth and to take upon himself an earthly tabernacle. He experienced joy and sorrow, happiness and grief, lasting satisfaction and frequent disappointments. As Paul has written, "Though he were a Son yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him." Hebrews 5:8-9 KJV
