Pieces of Words #5

I've found some new quotes. :) I hope you enjoy them!

"I prepared for the end. Then just as everything was going dark, I felt a hand on my shoulder. And when I opened my eyes, standing above me was the creator, your father. He saved me. I guess you could say I was a rescue." –Quorra in Tron: Legacy

"In the old covenant the clean things became unclean at a touch - in the new covenant the unclean things become clean by being touched!" –Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Church

"Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory." –Betty Smith

"Faith is a no-brainer." –Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Church

"Hope is not in imagining that men will change but in knowing that God sees. Men changing or not doesn’t affect my confidence in God. Hope must be rooted in eternity, not in wishful thinking." –Misty Edwards

Do you have any quotes you've heard or read over the past week that you'd like to share? Please feel free to leave them in the comments. I love reading what people find.

These are all from the book Speaker for the Dead, by Orson Scott Card.

"Don't lecture me about good and evil. I've been there. You've only seen the map."

"The words left ashes in their hearts."

"Will he always come between us?" "Yes, he will always come between us. Like a bridge, not a wall."

Loved those quotes, Sarah! Mine too are all from a book! =D

Taken from The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini:

"Children aren't coloring books. You don't get to fill them with your favorite colors."

"When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal a wife's right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone's right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. There is no act more wretched than stealing."

"...and every day I thank [God] that I am alive, not because I fear death, but because my wife has a husband and my son is not an orphan."

"He walked like he was afraid to leave behind footprints. He moved as if not to stir the air around him."

"And that, I believe, is what true redemption is, Amir jan, when guilt leads to good."
