Quote of the Day
The great danger for family life, in the midst of any society whose idols are pleasure, comfort and independence, lies in the fact that people close their hearts and become selfish.
Pope John Paul II
God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.
I've often stood silent at a party for hours listening to my movie idols turn into dull and little people.
I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.
All the idols made by man, however terrifying they may be, are in point of fact subordinate to him, and that is why he will always have it in his power to destroy them.
Simone de Beauvoir
Every one of us is, even from his mother's womb, a master craftsman of idols.
But the disparaging of those we love always alienates us from them to some extent. We must not touch our idols; the gilt comes off in our hands.
We want our idols to be dead because it makes death a much less scary place.
I think I find new idols every day - someone that says something really inspiring, is successful, has character.
Those who use tobacco, tea and coffee should lay these idols aside, and put their cost into the treasury of the Lord.
Ellen G. White
Code writers, they are my idols.
We all have idols. Play like anyone you care about but try to be yourself while you're doing so.
B. B. King
I would switch roles with Madonna for a day. Or if Audrey Hepburn was still alive, Audrey Hepburn. I love Audrey Hepburn. She's one of my idols, also.
I have a lot of feminist idols. My favorite thing about growing up in Arkansas - well, not favorite but something I've always felt grateful for - was that I really had to dig for what I could. There was no Internet. There wasn't tons of feminist literature floating around.
I don't have any idols, any heroes, nothing, no.
Never had any idols, ever. I never had any posters, nothing.
They were marketing me as a teen idol, when the stuff on the record was not what teen idols were doing at the time.
This is the deal: we are happy to single out people as superior just as long as they don't accept the description themselves. We want heroes and idols, but we also want egalitarianism, and that requires proclamations of humility from our gods.
No, I like being a role model because I know how much comfort my musical idols brought me.
As a kid, my idols were Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson, and I get into crazy races with myself. Raimi was 21 when he made movies, and when I didn't get 'Cabin Fever' made that fast I thought I'd failed.
The people who had the most impact on me when I was young were Freud and Darwin, but growing up I also had my film idols.
As a little girl growing up in a small farming town in Michigan, my idols were women like Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth.
Dita Von Teese
The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Phil Spector. Those were my idols.
The Beatles never sounded intimidated by their idols. They never interpreted old rock; they simply played it as well and as joyfully as they knew how. On 'Rock 'n' Roll,' John Lennon does nothing but interpret old rock.
James Taylor may be an all-American boy but he isn't Horatio Alger, and the lionizing of many rock stars by the rock press has as much to do with old fashioned rags-to-riches stories as does the straight culture's deification of its idols.
It would be really great if people would realize that stars are only people with the same weaknesses and flaws, not immaculate idols.
I do have a memo all the time because I need to be guided by something in my life. I'm not religious and I don't have idols, so something has to drive me.
Marina and the Diamonds
The God of the Hebrews is a God that human language, we're not even supposed to speak the holy name. We were told in the Second Commandment we could make no images of this God, and I don't think that means just building idols, I think that means also trying to believe you've captured God in your words, in the Creeds, in the Scriptures.
John Shelby Spong
As far as advice to potential teenage idols, there is no formula.
Worshipping is stripping ourselves of our idols, even the most hidden ones, and choosing the Lord as the centre, as the highway of our lives.
