Fragile Eternity quotes by Melissa Marr
#1. Love can give a person strength to break through glamours and magicks. #Quote by Melissa Marr
Fragile Eternity quotes by Joan Baez
#2. Only you and I can help the sun rise each coming morning. If we don't, it may drench itself out in sorrow.
You special, miraculous, unrepeatable, fragile, fearful, tender, lost, sparkling ruby emerald jewel, rainbow splendor person. It's up to you. #Quote by Joan Baez
Fragile Eternity quotes by Richard Rohr
#3. I am just like you. My immediate response to most situations is with reactions of attachment, defensiveness, judgment, control, and analysis. I am better at calculating than contemplating.

Let's admit that we all start there. The False Self seems to have the "first gaze" at almost everything.

The first gaze is seldom compassionate. It is too busy weighing and feeling itself: "How will this affect me?" or "How can I get back in control of this situation?" This leads us to an implosion, a self-preoccupation that cannot enter into communion with the other or the moment. In other words, we first feel our feelings before we can relate to the situation and emotion of the other. Only after God has taught us how to live "undefended," can we immediately stand with and for the other, and in the present moment. It takes lots of practice.

On my better days, when I am "open, undefended, and immediately present," as Gerald May says, I can sometimes begin with a contemplative mind and heart. Often I can get there later and even end there, but it is usually a second gaze. The True Self seems to always be ridden and blinded by the defensive needs of the False Self. It is an hour-by-hour battle, at least for me. I can see why all spiritual traditions insist on daily prayer, in fact, morning, midday, evening, and before we go to bed, too! Otherwise, I can assume that I am back in the cruise control of small and personal self-interest, the pitiable and fragile "R #Quote by Richard Rohr
Fragile Eternity quotes by Frederick Lenz
#4. Eternity manifests itself in endless ways on endless planes of existence that they call lokas, other dimensions ... worlds within worlds. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Fragile Eternity quotes by Osama Bin Noor
#5. If someone comes to you with an idea its like he is giving you a fragile glass made by himself. If the glass does not match your preference do not throw it away. Give him back otherwise it may hurt the person who made it. #Quote by Osama Bin Noor
Fragile Eternity quotes by Kady Hunt
#6. I want to say that yes, it was worth it; that I could suffer through pain and torture for her and go through a lot more than what Puck and his friends are capable of, and I can do it for all of eternity; suffer, until she realizes how much I love her.
But she's gone before I can say any of it.
I wait till she's left.
And then I reach for my wallet.
Hidden inside one of the flaps is a piece of paper that barely conceals a razorblade. Its frayed edges still have my blood on them. The blood is from the previous cuts I've made and I carry it around like a trophy, like Dexter carries around his victims' blood on slides. I use that blade to give myself a cut and it starts bleeding. Right away, it feels as though the pressure that has been building inside me ever since that confrontation with Puck is lifted.
I feel free again. #Quote by Kady Hunt
Fragile Eternity quotes by Shevaun Delucia
#7. All things good and pure will be reborn. you were and are beautiful and pure, our love is beautiful and pure, and because of that, we have been given the gift of eternity to love one another. #Quote by Shevaun Delucia
Fragile Eternity quotes by Guillaume Musso
#8. Nothing stays the same it all gets crushed. It all gets broken. It all passes with time. Only the moment you're in has any meaning."
"There are things that stand the test of time, there are things that last. Like love."
"Love theres nothing more fragile or ephereal.
Love is like fire on a rainy day: you've got to
spend all your time protecting it, feeding it, tending it because if you don't it goes out."
"There are some loves that last."
"No, what lasts is the pain that comes after love. #Quote by Guillaume Musso
Fragile Eternity quotes by Jay McLean
#9. I feel like I've loved you for eternity, and it's not even close to long enough. #Quote by Jay McLean
Fragile Eternity quotes by Myrtle Reed
#10. The river itself portrays humanity precisely, with its tortuous windings, its accumulation of driftwood, its unsuspected depths, and its crystalline shallows, singing in the Summer sun. Barriers may be built across its path, but they bring only power, as the conquering of an obstacle is always sure to do. Sometimes when the rocks and stone-clad hills loom large ahead, and eternity itself would be needed to carve a passage, there is an easy way around. The discovery of it makes the river sing with gladness and turns the murmurous deeps to living water, bright with ripples and foam. #Quote by Myrtle Reed
Fragile Eternity quotes by Julie Andrews Edwards
#11. A rose lay open in full bloom
and, looking from my garden room,
I watched the sun-baked flower fill with rain.
It seemed so fragile,
resting there,
and such a silence filled the air,
the beauty of the moment caused me pain.
"What more?" I thought. "There must be more."
As if in answer then, I saw
one weighty drop that caused my rose to fall.
It trembled, then cascaded down
to earth just staining gentle brown
and, since then, I've felt different.
That's all. #Quote by Julie Andrews Edwards
Fragile Eternity quotes by Ann Brashares
#12. Everyone is fragile. Everything beautiful is fragile #Quote by Ann Brashares
Fragile Eternity quotes by Marla Miniano
#13. Did I ever tell you that my mother and father started out as pen pals? They wrote these long, unabashedly affectionate love letters to one another, peppered with clichés and pie-in-the-sky proclamations of eternal devotion. Despite my father's eventual dishonesty and unfaithfulness, I have to believe he meant every word he wrote at that time, and it was admittedly romantic, uncovering my parents' yellowed letters, all soft, crumbling corners and black ink stains, one rainy afternoon. Because how can anyone scrawl lies, really, in their own handwriting, the evidence of your own betrayal right in front of you? I sat cross-legged on the floor, holding my breath as I unfolded each letter, fragile and expectant, like a little girl opening her presents on Christmas morning. I sat there and soaked up my parents' love for each other, and then I wondered where all those feelings had escaped to. I wondered where love went when it was lost - did it travel far, across miles and oceans and forests and deserts, or did it linger somewhere nearby, just waiting for a chance to be summoned again? Wherever it was, I could only hope it had ended up settling somewhere quieter, safer. #Quote by Marla Miniano
Fragile Eternity quotes by D.T. Suzuki
#14. To Zen, time and eternity are one. #Quote by D.T. Suzuki
Fragile Eternity quotes by Carol Lynn Pearson
#15. Optical Illusion"

Time is a stage magician
Pulling sleight-of-hand tricks
To make you think things go.

Eclipsed by the quick scarf
A lifetime of loves.

Zip -
The child is man.
Zip -
The friend in your arms
Is earth.
Zip -
The green tree is gold, is white,
Is smoking ash, is gone.

Zip -
Time's trick goes on.
All things loved -
Now you see them, now you don't.

Oh, this world has more
Of coming and of going
Than I can bear.
I guess it's eternity I want,
Where all things are
And always will be,
Where I can hold my loves
A little looser,
Where finally we realize
Is the only thing that really dies. #Quote by Carol Lynn Pearson
Fragile Eternity quotes by Mark Edmundson
#16. English majors want the joy of seeing the world through the eyes of people who - let us admit it - are more sensitive, more articulate, shrewder, sharper, more alive than they themselves are. The experience of merging minds and hearts with Proust or James or Austen makes you see that there is more to the world than you had ever imagined. You see that life is bigger, sweeter, more tragic and intense - more alive with meaning than you had thought.

Real reading is reincarnation. There is no other way to put it. It is being born again into a higher form of consciousness than we ourselves possess. When we walk the streets of Manhattan with Walt Whitman or contemplate our hopes for eternity with Emily Dickinson, we are reborn into more ample and generous minds. "Life piled on life / Were all too little," says Tennyson's "Ulysses," and he is right. Given the ragged magnificence of the world, who would wish to live only once? The English major lives many times through the astounding transportive magic of words and the welcoming power of his receptive imagination. The economics major? In all probability he lives but once. If the English major has enough energy and openness of heart, he lives not once but hundreds of times. Not all books are worth being reincarnated into, to be sure - but those that are win Keats's sweet phrase: "a joy forever. #Quote by Mark Edmundson
Fragile Eternity quotes by Valeria Luiselli
#17. Cities have often been compared to language: you can read a city, it's said, as you read a book. But the metaphor can be inverted. The journeys we make during the reading of a book trace out, in some way, the private spaces we inhabit. There are texts that will always be our dead-end streets; fragments that will be bridges; words that will be like the scaffolding that protects fragile constructions. T.S. Eliot: a plant growing in the debris of a ruined building; Salvador Novo: a tree-lined street transformed into an expressway; Tomas Segovia: a boulevard, a breath of air; Roberto Bolano: a rooftop terrace; Isabel Allende: a (magically real) shopping mall; Gilles Deleuze: a summit; and Jacques Derrida: a pothole. Robert Walser: a chink in the wall, for looking through to the other side; Charles Baudelaire: a waiting room; Hannah Arendt: a tower, an Archimedean point; Martin Heidegger: a cul-de-sac; Walter Benjamin: a one-way street walked down against the flow. #Quote by Valeria Luiselli
Fragile Eternity quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#18. My son has few friends and even fewer who know him for what he is. So long as you protect him, you live. Sumerian or not. But if you prove false in anything you've said here today, I will bring a wrath down on you so sever that you will spend eternity trying to dig out your own brains to alleviate the pain of it. (Apollymi) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Fragile Eternity quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#19. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Fragile Eternity quotes by Elizabeth Scott
#20. Whatever happened to me just now has gotten to me, broken past the fragile shell I've built. More than my memory is gone. My soul has wings that beat to a heart I don't understand and I see things, feel things that I know aren't from here, but that are so real. #Quote by Elizabeth Scott
Fragile Eternity quotes by The Martian Child David Gerrold
#21. Fantasy isn't about escape; it's a survival mechanism. It's a way to deal with things that are so much bigger than you are. So I think fantasy is special, something to be cherished and protected because it's a very fragile thing and without it, we're so defenseless, we're paralyzed. #Quote by The Martian Child David Gerrold
Fragile Eternity quotes by Bill Willingham
#22. We live through the belief of children ... Regicide is suicide, citizens. Inscribe that in your hearts. The Great Pretend is a fragile construct. #Quote by Bill Willingham
Fragile Eternity quotes by Margery Lawrence
#23. There is a monstrous garden in the sky
Nightly they sow it fresh. Nightly it springs,
Luridly splendid, towards the moon on high.
Red-poppy flares, and fire-bombs rosy-bright
Shell-bursts like hellborn sunflowers, gold and white
Lilies, long-stemmed, that search the heavens' height...
They tend it well, these gardeners on wings!

How rich these blossoms, hideously fair
Sprawling above the shuddering citadel
As though ablaze with laughter! Lord, how long
Must we behold them flower, ruthless, strong
Soaring like weeds the stricken worlds among
Triumphant, gay, these dreadful blooms of hell?

O give us back the garden that we knew
Silent and cool, where silver daisies lie,
The lovely stars! O garden purple-blue
Where Mary trailed her skirts amidst the dew
Of ageless planets, hand-in-hand with You
And Sleep and Peace walked with Eternity.....

But here I sit, and watch the night roll by.
There is a monstrous garden in the sky!

(written during an air raid, London, midnight, October 1941) #Quote by Margery Lawrence
Fragile Eternity quotes by Greg M. Epstein
#24. We are most fully ourselves when we admit that we are emotional beings, that we are defined by the ways we find though our behavior to express all these myriad emotions constantly bubbling beneath the surface of us as we try our fragile best to reason our way through the world. #Quote by Greg M. Epstein
Fragile Eternity quotes by Lucretius
#25. The sum total of all sums total is eternal (meaning the universe).
[Lat., Summarum summa est aeternum.] #Quote by Lucretius
Fragile Eternity quotes by Frederick Lenz
#26. You can move in and through the astral worlds once you have gained control of your subtle body. The astral worlds are the back corridors of eternity! #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Fragile Eternity quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#27. Time is too swift for those who fear, too long for those who wait, too short for those who finally find peace, but for those who love, time is eternal. For nothing is ever lost that God wants you to find. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Fragile Eternity quotes by Robert Beverly Hale
#28. The plan of the Father is that family love and companionship will continue into the eternities. Being one in a family carries a great responsibility of caring, loving, lifting and strengthening each member of the family so that all can righteously endure to the end in mortality and dwell together throughout eternity. #Quote by Robert Beverly Hale
Fragile Eternity quotes by Florence King
#29. Americans are so emotionally fragile that soon we will have to be carried around in plastic bubbles and fed with an eye-dropper. #Quote by Florence King
Fragile Eternity quotes by Alexander Schmemann
#30. The Church is not a society for escape-corporately or individually-from this world to taste of the mystical bliss of eternity. Communion is not a 'mystical experience': we drink of the chalice of Christ, and He gave Himself for the life of the world. The bread on the paten and the wine in the chalice are to remind us of the incarnation of the Son of God, of the cross and death. And thus it is the very joy of the Kingdom that makes us remember the world and pray for it. It is the very communion with the Holy Spirit that enables us to love the world with the love of Christ. The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity and the moment of truth: here we see the world in Christ, as it really is, and not from our particular and therefore limited and partial points of view. Intercession begins here, in the glory of the messianic banquet, and this is the only true beginning of the Church's mission. It is when, 'having put aside all earthly care,' we seem to have left this world, that we, in fact, recover it in all its reality. #Quote by Alexander Schmemann
Fragile Eternity quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#31. The idea of immortality, that like a sea has ebbed and flowed in the human heart, with its countless waves of hope and fear, beating against the shores and rocks of time and fate, was not born of any book, nor of any creed, nor of any religion. It was born of human affection, and it will continue to ebb and flow beneath the mists and clouds of doubt and darkness as long as love kisses the lips of death. It is the rainbow – Hope shining upon the tears of grief. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Fragile Eternity quotes by Jeff Goodell
#32. If we drill the hell out of everything, including protected public lands and fragile regions like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, America can emerge as an 'energy superpower.' #Quote by Jeff Goodell
Fragile Eternity quotes by Simone Weil
#33. Stars and blossoming fruit trees: Utter permanence and extreme fragility give an equal sense of eternity. #Quote by Simone Weil
Fragile Eternity quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#34. Is not every meanest day the confluence of two eternities? #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Fragile Eternity quotes by Nadejda Gorodetzky
#35. But peace, he said, is the result neither of life in the world nor of that in solitude, where the mind is still assailed by turbulent thoughts. Peace is the fruit only of a pure conscience and of patience, those inseparable powers which one acquires through sorrow -- till one reaches the true quiet of eternity. #Quote by Nadejda Gorodetzky
Fragile Eternity quotes by Steven Cook
#36. Righteousness and love, law and grace, life and death, as well as time and eternity all intersect at the cross; displaying a divine wisdom that staggers the imagination and leads the humble heart to bow in thankful adoration. To understand the cross of Christ is to understand the heart of God toward a fallen world He wants to save. #Quote by Steven Cook
Fragile Eternity quotes by Shawn Kirsten Maravel
#37. Unable to fit reason into the words she should probably say next, Evangeline chose instead to say nothing. Taking a long swig of her coffee, she waited for the moment to pass or for John to change the subject. She was prepared to wait an eternity if it meant holding back from saying something stupid. Something she should probably regret but doubted she would. #Quote by Shawn Kirsten Maravel
Fragile Eternity quotes by Frederick William Robertson
#38. There is a two-fold solemnity which belongs to the dying hour-it is the winding up of life, and it is the commencement of eternity. #Quote by Frederick William Robertson
Fragile Eternity quotes by Woody Allen
#39. Eternal nothingness is fine if you happen to be dressed for it. #Quote by Woody Allen
Fragile Eternity quotes by William Alexander
#40. The great, terrifying existentialist question : If you were doomed to live the same life over and over again for eternity, would you choose the life you are living now? The question is interesting enough, but I've always thought the point of asking it is really the unspoken, potentially devastating follow-up question. That is, if the answer is no, then why are you living the life you are living now? Stop making excuses , and do something about it. #Quote by William Alexander
Fragile Eternity quotes by Dennis Miller
#41. It's ironic that in our culture everyone's biggest complaint is about not having enough time; yet nothing terrifies us more than the thought of eternity. #Quote by Dennis Miller
Fragile Eternity quotes by Gayle Forman
#42. Mia, Mia, Mia," he said, stroking the tendrils of my hair that had escaped from the wig. "This is the you I like. You definitely dressed sexier and are, you know, blond, and that's different. But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I'll be in love with tomorrow. I love that you're fragile and tough, quiet and kick-ass. Hell, you're one of the punkest girls I know, no matter who you listen to or what you wear. #Quote by Gayle Forman
