cool one, Mike

“Once in an age God sends to some of us a friend who loves in us, not a false-imagining, an unreal character, but looking through the rubbish of our imperfections, loves in us the divine ideal of our nature,--loves, not the man that we are, but the angel that we may be.”--Harriet Beecher Stowe

"At the word bastard his heart moved painfully: it was as when a man in love hears a stranger name a flower which is also the name of his woman."

The Power & The Glory, Graham Greene

"I've been loving you a long time
Down all the years, down all the days
And I've cried for all your troubles
Smiled at your funny little ways
We watched our friends grow up together
And we saw them as they fell
Some of them fell into Heaven
And some of them fell into Hell"

A Rainy Night in Soho, The Pogues

"We must liberate our oppressors from the shackles of their own hatred." - (I don't remember who said it or what the exact quote is, but this wording is stuck in my head)

 

"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring." - Martin Luther King Jr.

 

"The radical tension between good and evil, as man sees it and feels it, does not have the last word about the meaning of life and the nature of existence. There is a spirit in a man and in the world working always against the thing that destroys and lays waste. Always he must know that the contradictions of life are not final or ultimate; he must distinguish between failure and a many-sided awareness so that he will not mistake conformity for harmony, uniformity for synthesis. He will know that for all men to be alike is the death of life in man, and yet perceive harmony that transcends all diversities and in which diversity finds its richness and significance." - Howard Thurman

 

"Pure and unblemished religion in the sight of God our Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation, and to keep oneself unstained from the world" -       James 1:27

Way cool

Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
 
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
