God And Tragedy quotes by Tara Sivec
#1. Tyler pulls his shirt down over his head and I pretend like I'm not sad to see his naked abs go. "I can't believe you're kicking me out at three-o'clock in the morning," he grumbles as he slides his feet into tennis shoes without bothering to tie them. He walks over to the window and slides it open, looking back at me and smirking. "So, same time, same place tomorrow?" Rolling my eyes, I shake my head. "No. Absolutely not. We're not doing this anymore. Leave and don't come back." He's got one leg swung over the windowsill and his body halfway out before he jerks his head back inside and stares at me in surprise. "What? What do you mean 'don't come back? Like, don't come back tomorrow, or ever?"
"Ever. This was a huge mistake." He actually has the nerve to growl at me thank god he didn't whinny or I'd be puking right into my lap. "Fine! But You'll be begging for another piece of Tyler, mark my words!"
"Jesus Christ, don't talk about yourself in third person," I complain. "They comeback, They always come back to Tyler," he mutters with another smirk, completely ignoring me. "By 'they', I'm assuming you're talking about the ponies you were dreaming about?" I chuckle. "Fuck your face! Fuck you face right now!" he demands. "Get the hell out of my bedroom and don't come back, Prancer!" I fire back. Sticking his tongue out at me in one poorly-executed, last ditch effort to put me in my place, he tries to smoothly exit my window but his head smacks against the frame. He Le #Quote by Tara Sivec
God And Tragedy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#2. Priests create a smoke screen around our anxiety, our despair, our terror and our demons. They paint mind-blowing pictures that make us jittery, unhappy and afraid. Priests are nothing but alarmists, pessimists and doom merchants. Calamity Jane personified. But at this stage, they've got us. We've been knocking off our neighbour's wife or robbing post offices and we're just about ready to turn our faces to the wall and abandon hope. We want someone with the power to grant us amnesty from our immorality, and to us the priests appear as Sir Galahad, Boadicea, Rambo or Joan of Arc. Stout fellows, all of them. "I have the fucking answer," they cry, "Sign here, you plebs."

And we do! 2.2 billion of us! Why? I'll tell you why. Because we've been sold. We feel plagued by conscience and answerable to God only. And the only way we can get to God is through Her second in command ….. the priest. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
God And Tragedy quotes by Ronald Reagan
#3. To those who cite the first amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The first amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
God And Tragedy quotes by Anonymous
#4. Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. The LORD said, I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them. #Quote by Anonymous
God And Tragedy quotes by Tracie Miles
#5. As we become more mature in faith, learning to trust that God is capable of all things, we will see God as bigger and bigger every time we encounter Him. #Quote by Tracie Miles
God And Tragedy quotes by Randy Alcorn
#6. For anyone who knows what it is to weep over sin or loss or pain, Heaven offers a beautiful promise: one day God himself will wipe the tears from our eyes. And even better, one day he will transform those tears into laughter. The Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17 #Quote by Randy Alcorn

God And Tragedy quotes by Ana Veciana-Suarez
#9. As she lived and suffered - was that redundant? - she discovered God in the most unusual places, sensed calm in the most tumultuous times. She had learned her way to and from, but especially through the dark passages of pain and regret. She had discovered how to sit still through the urgency of life. #Quote by Ana Veciana-Suarez
God And Tragedy quotes by Luke Scott
#10. I rely on guns for protection in life. God does not say, 'This is la-la land.' God doesn't say, 'Welcome to Earth. Everything's perfect. There's no crime. There's no murder. There's no death.' The world is imperfect, and you have to be on guard. #Quote by Luke Scott
God And Tragedy quotes by Ed Koch
#11. People get tired of you. So they decided to throw me out. And so help me God, as the numbers were coming in, I said to myself, 'I'm free at last.' #Quote by Ed Koch
God And Tragedy quotes by Eric Metaxas
#12. When he said they needed to humble themselves and listen to God's commands and obey them, he was not posturing. He wanted to impart this vision of God and was saying that one must utterly trust God now and must know that hearing him is indeed all that matters. #Quote by Eric Metaxas
God And Tragedy quotes by John Milton
#13. O why did God, Creator wise, that peopled highest heav'n With Spirits masculine, create at last This novelty on earth, this fair defect Of nature, and not fill the world at once With men as angels without feminine, Or find some other way to generate Mankind? #Quote by John Milton
God And Tragedy quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#14. Away from the goal
Far away I stand from my home.
A home unknown
Where my heart and spirit must go

Thy guidance oh Lord
Thy guidance oh lord
Eternal eternity I beseech
that You will lead me to the goal


Away from victory
far away I stand from victory
Victory unknown; thy spirit divine I know
that You may lead me where I must go


Thy guidance oh Lord
Thy guidance oh lord
Victorious victory I beseech
that You will lead me to a victorious victory

Away from the troubles of life
far away from the troubles; my delight
that You will lead me with thy light
Thy light that rekindles my night


Thy guidance oh Lord
Thy guidance oh lord
Far away from the troubles I beseech
That You will lead me from the troubles of life with Thy light #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
God And Tragedy quotes by Ray Bradbury
#15. And her smile showed for a moment, even as the moon came out of the clouds and went away. "Isn't it silly?"
"No. Men do the same. They take long walks when they're sixteen, seventeen. They don't stand on lawns, waiting, no. But, my God, how they walk! Miles and miles from midnight until dawn and come home exhausted and explode and die in bed. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
God And Tragedy quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#16. Each of the sapiens brains generates its own perception of God in uniquely different ways. Ergo, it imposes different qualities of meaning and value on God. You see God the way your brain wants you to see it. There is no right and wrong, or fact and fiction on this matter. It is all personal. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
God And Tragedy quotes by Bernard Of Clairvaux
#17. Let us affectionately love His angels as counselors and defenders appointed by the Father and placed over us. They are faithful; they are prudent; they are powerful; Let us only follow them, let us remain close to them, and in the protection of the God of heaven let us abide. #Quote by Bernard Of Clairvaux
God And Tragedy quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#18. You did not kill Silas Stone, or Zannah's child. The war killed both of them. You must accept that." "But I might have saved them. There was a man, Jesse, he handed me a gun, and I handed it back to him. I valued my principles more than I valued their lives. And the outcome is, they are slaves again, or dead." "You are not God. You do not determine the outcome. The outcome is not the point." "Then what, pray, is the point?" His voice was a dry, soft rattle, like a breeze through a bough of dead leaves. "The point is the effort. That you, believing what you believed - what you sincerely believed, including the commandment 'thou shalt not kill' - acted upon it. To believe, to act, and to have events confound you - I grant you, that is hard to bear. But to believe, and not to act, or to act in a way that every fiber of your soul held was wrong - how can you not see? That is what would have been reprehensible." And even as I said this, I knew that if I stood again in the cattle show ground, and heard him promise to go to war, I would hold my piece, again, even knowing what terrible days were to follow. For to have asked him to do otherwise would have been to wish him a different man. And I knew then that I loved this man. This inconstant, ruined dreamer. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
God And Tragedy quotes by Andrew Murray
#19. True happiness is always self-forgetful: it loses itself in the object of its joy. As the joy of the Holy Ghost fills us, and we rejoice in God the Holy One, through our Lord Jesus Christ. [. . .]

Love and joy ever keep company. Love, denying and forgetting itself for the brethren and the lost, living in them, finds the joy of God. 'The kingdom of God is joy in the Holy Ghost. #Quote by Andrew Murray
God And Tragedy quotes by R.C. Sproul
#20. The more we are in the Word of God, the more the Spirit who inspired the Word and who illumines it for us will use the Word to confirm in our souls that we are truly His, that we are indeed among the children of God. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
God And Tragedy quotes by John Lennon
#21. And God help Bruce Springsteen when they decide he's no longer God ... They'll turn on him, and I hope he survives it. #Quote by John Lennon
God And Tragedy quotes by Beth Moore
#22. A big difference exists between trying to manipulate God to give us what we want and cooperating with God so He can give us what He wants. The latter is our goal. #Quote by Beth Moore
God And Tragedy quotes by Melina Marchetta
#23. But that's it. When I think of you, I think of future stuff. I think of this is it and I'm not supposed to think this is it at my age. I don't look at you and think nice. I look at you and think, oh my God, I want to hold her and never let her go. I think, sex - right here, right now - #Quote by Melina Marchetta
God And Tragedy quotes by Thomas Merton
#24. New eyes awaken.
I send Love's name into the world with wings
And songs grow up around me like a jungle.
Choirs of all creatures sing the tunes
Your Spirit played in Eden.
Zebras and antelopes and birds of paradise
Shine on the face of the abyss
And I am drunk with the great wilderness
Of the sixth day in Genesis.

But sound is never half so fair
As when that music turns to air
And the universe dies of excellence.

Sun, moon and stars
Fall from their heavenly towers.
Joys walk no longer down the blue world's shore.

Though fires loiter, lights still fly on the air of the gulf,
All fear another wind, another thunder:
Then one more voice
Snuffs all their flares in one gust.

And I go forth with no more wine and no more stars
And no more buds and no more Eden
And no more animals and no more sea:

While God sings by himself in acres of night
And walls fall down, that guarded Paradise. #Quote by Thomas Merton
God And Tragedy quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#25. Ham turned back, still smiling. "You make it sound so desperate, El."
Elend looked over at him. "The Assembly is a mess, a half-dozen warlords with superior armies are breathing down my neck, barely a month passes without someone sending assassins to kill me, and the woman I love is slowly driving me insane."
Vin snorted at this last part.
"Oh is that all?" Ham said. "See? It's not so bad after all. I mean, we could be facing an immortal god and his all-powerful priests instead. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
God And Tragedy quotes by George MacDonald
#26. To be lord of space, a man must be free of all bonds to place. To be heir of all things, his heart must have no THINGS in it. He must be like him who makes things, not like one who would put everything in his pocket. He must stand on the upper, not the lower side of them. He must be as the man who makes poems, not the man who gathers books of verse. God, having made a sunset, lets it pass, and makes such a sunset no more. He has no picture-gallery, no library. What if in heaven men shall be so busy growing, that they have not time to write or to read! #Quote by George MacDonald
God And Tragedy quotes by Matthew Washburn
#27. When we gaze sympathetically at the human condition of our 'enemies' we rather lovingly, gaze, oh so briefly, at our true moral reflection. We edge and creep ever closer to that final jump into the abyss of moral ambiguity. The tears will stream with fury as you release those bound demons from within. Then, and only then, you will SOAR. I most certainly do not guarantee that you'll find it ANY better than walking, or even yet, crawling (the view is terrifying at first -- and the wings will shame you with ANGELIC glory!) but haven't you always wanted to FLY?
The prerequisites for flight are a growing of the mind's wings and the shedding of tremendous moral weight. Always inevitably, you will climb to view the entire landscape -- ascending with greater speed and pressure. And when the view of the abyss has squeezed every droplet of humanity from your heart-- when you bear and peer into the face of GOD -- I assure you, you will fall and tumble majestically through the mind's clouds, returning to homely feet, swaddled in terrible and gorgeous humanity, just as you always have, safe in bed, night-light beside, shining in the darkness. #Quote by Matthew Washburn
God And Tragedy quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#28. I knew it all, the whole drab compass of marital disillusion; we had been through it together, the Army and I, from the first importunate courtship until now, when nothing remained to us except the chill bonds of law and duty and custom. I had played every scene in the domestic tragedy, had found the early tiffs become more frequent, the tears less affecting, the reconciliations less sweet, till they engendered a mood of aloofness and cool criticism, and the growing conviction that it was not myself but the loved one who was at fault. I caught the false notes in her voice and learned to listen for them apprehensively; I recognized the blank, resentful stare of incomprehension in her eyes, and the selfish, hard set of the corners of her mouth. I learned her, as one must learn a woman one has kept house with, day in, day out, for three and a half years; I learned her slatternly ways, the routine and mechanism of her charm, her jealousy and self-seeking, and her nervous trick with the fingers when she was lying. She was stripped of all enchantment now and I knew her for an uncongenial stranger to whom I had bound myself indissolubly in a moment of folly. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
God And Tragedy quotes by Timothy S. Lane
#29. reconciling grace, saving grace of Jesus

"[In regards to struggles and potential in relationship],..we are sinner with capacity to to do great damage to ourselves and our relationships. We need God's grace to save us from ourselves. But we are also God's children, which means that we have great hope and potential-- not hope that rests on our gifts, experience, or track record, but hope that rests in Christ. Because he is in us and we are in him, it is right to say that our potential IS Christ. We are well aware that we are smack-dab in the middle of God's process of sanctification. And because this is true, we will struggle again. Selfishness, pride, an unforgiving spirit, irritation, and impatience will certainly return. But we are neither afraid nor hopeless. We have experienced what God can do in the middle of the mess. This side of heaven, relationships and ministry are always shaped in the forge of struggle. None of us get to relate to perfect people or avoid the effects of the fall on the work we attempt to do. Yet amid the mess, we find the highest joys of relationship and ministry. #Quote by Timothy S. Lane
God And Tragedy quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#30. When we embrace everything the Bible says about itself, then - and only then - will we believe what we should believe about the word of God, feel what we should feel, and do with the word of God what we ought to do. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
God And Tragedy quotes by Bonnie Lyn Smith
#31. I need to approach my Father in heaven as if I were three feet tall and short on life experience. #Quote by Bonnie Lyn Smith
God And Tragedy quotes by Dan Simmons
#32. God is our refuge and strength, and ever-prethent help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountainth fall into the heart of the sea, though its waterth roar and foam and the mountains quake with their thurging. #Quote by Dan Simmons
God And Tragedy quotes by Ronnie Coleman
#33. I used to think that my career was to be a police officer, and that is what I was put here to do. But I always kept the faith and always worked hard on my goals and I finally found out on Sept. 25, 1998, why I was put here - (God) called me here to be Mr. Olympia. #Quote by Ronnie Coleman
