Quote of the Day
I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.
Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenements halls and whispered in the sounds of silence.
Many of the prophets of Jesus's time were thought to just be mad men, just sort of crazy people who were claiming to channel the divine. Perhaps that means we should be a little less judgmental of some of our own crazies talking about God on the corner. They might actually have found a pretty comfortable place in Jesus's time.
Muslims are not bloodthirsty people. Islam is a religion of peace that forbids the killing of the innocent. Islam also accepts the Prophets, whether those prophets are Mohammed, God's peace and blessing be upon Him, or Moses or the other prophets of the Books.
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
When I look upon seamen, men of science and philosophers, man is the wisest of all beings; when I look upon priests and prophets nothing is as contemptible as man.
Music is the art of the prophets and the gift of God.
Hence it comes about that all armed Prophets have been victorious, and all unarmed Prophets have been destroyed.
Ironically, the first thing that appealed to me about Islam was its pluralism. The fact that the Koran praises all the great prophets of the past.
The wisest prophets make sure of the event first.
The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.
We are all at times unconscious prophets.
Men do not accept their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and worship those whom they have tortured to death.
Jesters do often prove prophets.
We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The Bible is full of warnings about false prophets and false messiahs. These satanically inspired people have appeared in almost every generation of history.
For if the mystery concealed of old is made manifest to the Apostles through the prophetic writings, and if the prophets, being wise men, understood what proceeded from their own mouths, then the prophets knew what was made manifest to the Apostles.
Behold how Christ is the foundation of the church and the apostles are the foundations! Christ is by a figure of speech - antonomastice - the foundation because the edifice of the church begins from him and is finished in him and through him. But the prophets and apostles are the foundations because their authority bears up our weakness.
I tell you in truth: all men are Prophets or else God does not exist.
We should never lose an occasion. Opportunity is more powerful even than conquerors and prophets.
That which I have set out in Latin is not my words but the words of God and of apostles and prophets, who of course have never lied. He who believes shall be saved, but he who does not believe shall be damned. God has spoken.
Science reckons many prophets, but there is not even a promise of a Messiah.
Prophets of doom have always taken risks in terms of ridicule and humiliation. If you stand on a street corner holding up a sign that reads 'The End Is Near,' passersby will laugh and heckle. People will say you're like Chicken Little, running around telling people the sky is falling.
Dream manfully and nobly, and thy dreams shall be prophets.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Our society is illuminated by the spiritual insights of the Hebrew prophets. America and Israel have a common love of human freedom, and they have a common faith in a democratic way of life.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
