Ellen G. White
“It is Satan's constant effort to misrepresent the character of God, the nature of sin, and the real issues at stake in the great controversy. His sophistry lessens the obligation of the divine law and gives men license to sin. At the same time he causes them to cherish false conceptions of God so that they regard Him with fear and hate rather than with love. The cruelty inherent in his own character is attributed to the Creator; it is embodied in systems of religion and expressed in modes of worship.”
Ellen G. White, Great Controversy: Between Christ and Satan

Gretchen Rubin
“... one flaw throws the loveliness of [everything else] into focus. I remember reading that Shakers deliberately introduced a mistake into the things they made, to show that man shouldn't aspire to the perfection of God. Flawed can be more perfect than perfection.”
Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

Alexander Pope
“Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:
God said, Let Newton be! and all was light.”
Alexander Pope

Deepak Chopra
“Be content not with your lot in life but with being here in the flow of life. The glories of creation are in your very cells; you are made of the same mindstuff as the angels, the stars, and god himself.”
Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life

Libba Bray
“Maybe there’s a heaven, like they say, a place where everything we’ve ever done is noted and recorded, weighed on big karma scales. Maybe not. Maybe this whole thing is just a giant experiment run by aliens who find out human hijinks amusing. Or maybe we’re an abandoned project started by a deity who checked out a long time ago, but we’re still hard-wired to believe, to try to make meaning out of the seemingly random. Maybe we’re all part of the same unconscious stew, dreaming the same dreams, hoping the same hopes, needing the same connection, trying to find it, missing, trying again—each of us playing our parts in the other’s plotlines, just one big ball of human yarn tangled up together. Maybe this is it.”
Libba Bray

Jean-Paul Sartre
“All men are Prophets or else God does not exist.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

Pope Benedict XVI
“Without God man neither knows which way to go, nor even understands who he is... One of the deepest forms of poverty a person can experience is isolation... Poverty is often produced by a rejection of God's love, by man's basic and tragic tendency to close in on himself, thinking himself to be self-sufficient or merely an insignificant and ephemeral fact, a "stranger" in a random universe...The human being develops when ... his soul comes to know itself and the truths that God has implanted deep within, when he enters into dialogue with himself and his Creator... It is not by isolation that man establishes his worth, but by placing himself in relation with others and with God.”
Pope Benedict XVI

Max Lucado
“‎Mark it down: God loves you with an unearthly love. You can't win it by being winsome. You can't lose it by being a loser. But you can be blind enough to resist it”
Max Lucado

Kurt Vonnegut
“Music is, to me, proof of the existence of God. It is so extraordinarily full of magic, and in tough times of my life I can listen to music and it makes such a difference.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“A miracle is a single mom who works two jobs to care for her kids and still helps them with their homework at night. A miracle is a child donating all the money in their piggy bank to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. That's where you'll find the hand and face of God.”
Cathie Linz, Good Girls Do

Richelle Mead
“Seth's quote from his book:
"And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God and I'd get Him to swap our places"
-"Running up that Hill" by Kate Bush”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Heat

H.L. Mencken
“If we assume that man actually does resemble God, then we are forced into the impossible theory that God is a coward, an idiot and a bounder.”
H.L. Mencken

Lindsey Leavitt
“He said focus. The word focus. I hear angels singing. Everything goes dark except for a light that beams down on Sean. It is a God-given sign- like when people see the Virgin Mary in their grilled cheese, except this isn't religious and I'm actually not a big fan of dairy. I stare at the back of his head. His HEAD. Something I see every day but never really see because it's been there forever. Since the first day of third grade.

I crumple up my web. I don't need it. Praise be, the Focus Gods have spoken.

I am going to write about Sean Griswold's Head.”
Lindsey Leavitt, Sean Griswold's Head

Meister Eckhart
“Whoever possesses God in their being has Him in a divine manner, and He shines out to them in all things; for them all things taste of God and in all things it is God's image that they see.”
Meister Eckhart

James Joyce
“The artist, like the God of creation, remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails”
James Joyce

Peter Kreeft
“The saints, too, had wandering minds. The saints, too, had constantly to recall their constantly wandering mind-child home. They became saints because they continued to go after the little wanderer, like the Good Shepherd.”
Peter Kreeft, Prayer for Beginners

Alexandra Katehakis
“People often ask: If there’s a God, how can He allow so much suffering in the world? Realize all world suffering you perceive is a mirror to your own psychological self-abuse, gender imbalance, prejudice, poverty, and hunger. You couldn’t even perceive each suffering aspect of external reality if it didn’t already exist within you. Touch and transmute your own psychological suffering, and perceive the world in kind.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

“പുറത്തിത്രയും മമതകള് മുഴുവന്
ആടയാഭരണങ്ങളും അണിഞ്ഞ്
കൈകൊട്ടി വിളിച്ചിട്ടും നിങ്ങളുടെ ഉറ്റവര്
എന്തുകൊണ്ട് വീട്
വിട്ടിറങ്ങി പോകുന്നില്ല , എന്തുകൊണ്ട്
നിങ്ങളുടെ കൗമാരകാരനായ മകന്
മദ്യപിക്കുന്നില
ല് ,പെണ്കുട്ടി പ്രണയത്തിന്റെ മായ പങ്കാളിയെ ചുറ്റിപിടിച്ചു
പുലരിയോളം നൃത്തം ചവിട്ടുന്നില്ല ,പുറത്തേക്ക്
പോകാന് ഉയര്ത്തിയ പാദങ്ങള് ഒരു
നിലവിളിയോടെ താഴ്ത്തി അവര്ട് ഉള്ളിലേക്ക് ഓടിപോയതെന്തുകൊണ്. രണ്ടു പേര്ക്കിടയില് സംഭവിച്ചതതാണ് , ശരിയായ രണ്ടു പേര് തെറ്റായ ഒരു കാലത്തില് കണ്ടു മുട്ടുകയെന്നു പറയുന്നതുപോലെ .ആരോ ചിലര്
കുറുകെ കടക്കാനുള്ള വൈമുഖ്യം കൊണ്ട് അവര് അങ്ങനെ നിന്ന്
പോയതാണ് .അങ്ങനെതന്നെയായ­
ിരിന്നോ അതുവേണ്ടിയിരുന്നതെന്ന്
പറയാനുള്ള ധൈര്യമോന്നുമില്ല.
ദൈവമേ, ഈ വാതില് പടികള് എന്തുകൊണ്ടാണ്
നീ ഉണ്ടാക്കിയിരിക്കുന്നത് ... ?
തടി തരങ്ങള് കൊണ്ടല്ല എന്ന് വരുമോ ..?
നിങ്ങളുടെ സ്നേഹം ഒരു
കടമ്പയായി കുറുകെ കിടക്കുമ്പോള് ആര്ക്കാണ്
പുറത്തു കടക്കാനാവുക ..”
Boby Jose Kattikad, Vaathil | വാതില്‍
