Quote of the Day

Likewise today, some Christians are content to merely exist until they die. They don't want to risk anything, to believe God, to grow or mature. They refuse to believe his Word, and have become hardened in their unbelief. Now they're living just to die.
As far as I'm concerned, 'whom' is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.
To love the one who loves you, To admire the one who admires you, In a word, to be the idol of one's idol, Is exceeding the limit of human joy; It is stealing fire from heaven.
Delphine de Girardin
India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human peoples.
I'm completely cricketed out. If I never have to write another word about cricket again, I'll be a happy man.
It's a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and chameleon. Because one word I don't like is predictable.
I think the worst and most insidious procrastination for me is research. I will be looking for some bit of fact or figure to include in the novel, and before I know, I've wasted an entire morning delving into that subject matter without a word written.
Discipline? I don't know the meaning of the word.
I got this idea of doing a really serious big work-it would be precisely like a novel, with a single difference: Every word of it would be true from beginning to end.
I think by now I have made it fairly clear that I am not very happy with the word hope. I don't believe in people just hoping.
Aung San Suu Kyi
If I waited for perfection... I would never write a word.
He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense.
I think 'destiny' is just a fancy word for a psychological pattern.
I'm well past the age where I'm acceptable. You get to a certain age and you are forbidden access. You're not going to get the kind of coverage that you would like in music magazines, you're not going to get played on radio and you're not going to get played on television. I have to survive on word of mouth.
What a word is truth. Slippery, tricky, unreliable. I tried in these books to tell the truth.
I defy anyone to produce any evidence that the word 'happy' has ever crossed my lips. I am not now, nor have I ever been, 'happy.'
The word 'geek' today does not mean what it used to mean. A geek isn't the skinny kid with a pocket protector and acne. There can be computer geeks, video game geeks, car geeks, military geeks, and sports geeks. Being a geek just means that you're passionate about something.
If the word has the potency to revive and make us free, it has also the power to blind, imprison, and destroy.
I think the gay community should get smart and drop the word 'marriage.' Do you really need to change every right-wing Christian to make sure you get your equal rights? Eyes on the prize, we should be sticking to getting equal rights.
I don't feel I write fast. I write in longhand and do so much revision. On the page, it's so old-fashioned. I could write a whole novel on scrap paper, scribbles and things. I keep looking at it and something develops. For me, using a word processor would mean staring at a screen for too many hours.
Joyce Carol Oates
Glamour is a beautiful illusion - the word 'glamour' originally meant a literal magic spell - that promises to transcend ordinary life and make the ideal real. It depends on a special combination of mystery and grace. Too much information breaks the spell.
I honor God that much in the way I play. That's why I never believe in getting tired. I don't even know what that word means.
The word diva to me means doing something supernatural with something natural.
The kindest word to describe my performance in school was Sloth.
No, generally I think influence is used as a nice word for plagiarism.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
