Severe Mercy quotes by Sheldon Vanauken
#1. That death, so full of suffering for us both, suffering that still overwhelmed my life, was yet a severe mercy. A mercy as severe as death, a severity as merciful as love. #Quote by Sheldon Vanauken
Severe Mercy quotes by Amy Andrews
#2. You're driving me crazy." His ragged words were barely louder than a whisper but wicked hot against her neck.
And he didn't sound cocky or so sure of himself now. He sounded completely at her mercy.
Like he might just die if she stopped. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Severe Mercy quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#3. Suppose after all that death does end all. Next to eternal joy, next to being forever with those we love and those who have loved us, next to that, is to be wrapt in the dreamless drapery of eternal peace. Next to eternal life is eternal sleep.

Upon the shadowy shore of death the sea of trouble casts no wave. Eyes that have been curtained by the everlasting dark, will never know again the burning touch of tears. Lips touched by eternal silence will never speak again the broken words of grief. Hearts of dust do not break. The dead do not weep. Within the tomb no veiled and weeping sorrow sits, and in the rayless gloom is crouched no shuddering fear.

I had rather think of those I have loved, and lost, as having returned to earth, as having become a part of the elemental wealth of the world – I would rather think of them as unconscious dust, I would rather dream of them as gurgling in the streams, floating in the clouds, bursting in the foam of light upon the shores of worlds, I would rather think of them as the lost visions of a forgotten night, than to have even the faintest fear that their naked souls have been clutched by an orthodox god.

I will leave my dead where nature leaves them. Whatever flower of hope springs up in my heart I will cherish, I will give it breath of sighs and rain of tears. But I cannot believe that there is any being in this universe who has created a human soul for eternal pain. I would rather that every god would dest #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Severe Mercy quotes by Sarah Ockler
#4. She's a human being, just like me. Frail and faulty and flawed, capable of making the most heinous mistakes and inflicting the most severe pain. But equally capable of the greatest love. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Severe Mercy quotes by James Baldwin
#5. People don't have any mercy. They tear you limb from limb, in the name of love. Then, when you're dead, when they've killed you by what they made you go through, they say you didn't have any character. They weep big, bitter tears - not for you. For themselves, because they've lost their toy. #Quote by James Baldwin
Severe Mercy quotes by Ellen G. White
#6. If Christians will obey the instructions given to them by Christ and his inspired apostles, they will adorn the religion of the Bible, and save themselves much perplexity and severe trials, which they attribute to their afflictions in consequence of believing unpopular truth. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Severe Mercy quotes by Milton Friedman
#7. The Fed was largely responsible for converting what might have been a garden-variety recession, although perhaps a fairly severe one, into a major catastrophe. Instead of using its powers to offset the depression, it presided over a decline in the quantity of money by one-third from 1929 to 1933 ... Far from the depression being a failure of the free-enterprise system, it was a tragic failure of government. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Severe Mercy quotes by Kelly Moran
#8. Urges. Mercy, the urges. #Quote by Kelly Moran
Severe Mercy quotes by Wendell Berry
#9. The mercy of the world is you don't know what's going to happen. #Quote by Wendell Berry

#10. Mercy shall not be for men alone, but shall go beyond, and embrace the whole world. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Severe Mercy quotes by Cassandra Clare
#11. Cortana," he said. "Made by Wayland the Smith, the legendary forger of Excalibur and Durendal. Said to choose its bearer. When Ogier raised it to slay the son of Charlemagne on the field, an angel came and broke the sword and said to him, 'Mercy is better than Revenge. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Severe Mercy quotes by Suzy Kassem
#12. The price for standing up for Truth, no matter how severe, will always be less than the price our souls will be penalized for not speaking up for our conscience. There is no greater crime in the universe than silencing your conscience. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Severe Mercy quotes by Cathleen Falsani
#13. Justice is getting what you deserve.
Mercy is not getting what you deserve.
And grace is getting what you absolutely don't deserve.
... benign good will. unprovoked compassion. the unearnable gift #Quote by Cathleen Falsani
Severe Mercy quotes by Rose Philippine Duchesne
#14. Let us never lose courage or despair of God's mercy. We have only to humble ourselves before God in order to obtain grace to become all that we ought to be. #Quote by Rose Philippine Duchesne
Severe Mercy quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#15. Love will show you that you do not have to search for it because it abides in you whole-heartedly. Love can be bittersweet but its grace is patience. Love is difficult but its mercy is tender. At times love might make you feel empty but you are never alone. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Severe Mercy quotes by David McCullough
#16. You are not singular in your suspicions that you know but little," he had told Caroline, in response to her quandary over the riddles of life. "The longer I live, the more I read, the more patiently I think, and the more anxiously I inquire, the less I seem to know. . . . Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly. This is enough. . . . So questions and so answers your affectionate grandfather." Adams #Quote by David McCullough
Severe Mercy quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#17. In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on God alone. When no human deliverance can avail, he must simply and entirely trust himself to the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks a man on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God
and God alone! #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Severe Mercy quotes by Silouan The Athonite
#18. Tell everything to your spiritual father, and the Lord will have mercy on you and you will escape delusion. But if you think that you know more about the spiritual life than your spiritual father, and you stop telling him everything about yourself in confession, then you will immediately be allowed to fall into some sort of delusion, in order that you may be corrected. #Quote by Silouan The Athonite
Severe Mercy quotes by Billy Graham
#19. God has not changed. His laws have not changed. He is still a God of love and mercy But He is also a God of righteousness and judgment. #Quote by Billy Graham
Severe Mercy quotes by Veronica Roth
#20. Death is a mercy compared to the agony I have caused."
P162 #Quote by Veronica Roth
Severe Mercy quotes by Richard Rohr
#21. Church practice has been more influenced by Plato than by Jesus. We invariably prefer the universal synthesis, the answer that settles all the dust and resolves every question even when it is not entirely true over the mercy and grace of God. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Severe Mercy quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#22. Jesus, the Blessed Child of God, is merciful. Showing mercy is different from having pity. Pity connotes distance, even looking down upon. When a beggar asks for money and you give him something out of pity, you are not showing mercy. Mercy comes from a compassionate heart; it comes from a desire to be an equal. Jesus didn't want to look down on us. He wanted to become one of us and feel deeply with us.
When Jesus called the only son of the widow of Nain to life, he did so because he felt the deep sorrow of the grieving mother in his own heart (see Luke 7:11-17). Let us look at Jesus when we want to know how to show mercy to our brothers and sisters. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Severe Mercy quotes by Neil Gaiman
#23. In a tavern in Fulkeston, Tristran gained great renown by reciting from memory Coleridge's "Kubla Khan," the Twenty-Third Psalm, the "Quality of Mercy" speech from The Merchant of Venice, and a poem about a boy who stood on the burning deck where all but he had fled, each of which he had been obliged to commit to memory in his school days.

Severe Mercy quotes by Thomas Merton
#24. A Christian society? Such a society is not one that is run by priests, not even necessarily one in which everybody has to go to Church: it is one in which work is for production and not for profit, and production is not for its own sake, not merely for the sake of those who own the means of production, but for all who contribute in a constructive way to the process of production. A Christian society is one in which men give their share of labor and intelligence and receive their share of the fruits of the labor of all, and in which all this is seen in relation to a transcendental purpose, the "history of salvation," the Kingdom of God, a society centered upon the divine truth and the divine mercy. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Severe Mercy quotes by Seraphim Of Sarov
#25. The body is a slave, the soul a sovereign, and therefore it is due to Divine mercy when the body is worn out by illness: for thereby the passions are weakened, and a man comes to himself; indeed, bodily illness itself is sometimes caused by the passions. #Quote by Seraphim Of Sarov
Severe Mercy quotes by Nalini Singh
#26. One thing I've always wondered - why did you enter that bikini contest when you were a teenager?"
Her face flushed with a mixture of anger and embarrassment. "How far back did you trace me?"
"Far enough." A pause. "You didn't answer my question."
"And you didn't turn into a puff of smoke and disappear. The world is full of disappointments. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Severe Mercy quotes by Mercy Cortez
#27. How selfish and dark it was to count my blessings based on another's hell #Quote by Mercy Cortez
Severe Mercy quotes by James Baldwin
#28. Furthermore, it is now absolutely clear that white people are a minority in the world - so severe a minority that they now look rather more like an invention - and that they cannot possibly hope to rule it any longer. If this is so, why is it not also possible that they achieved their original dominance by stealth and cunning and bloodshed and in opposition to the will of Heaven, and not, as they claim, by Heaven's will? #Quote by James Baldwin
Severe Mercy quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#29. I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expect everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate good ... If we will take the good we find, ... we shall have heaping measures ... #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Severe Mercy quotes by William Shakespeare
#30. The quality of mercy is not strain'd, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: 'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown; His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway; It is enthroned in the hearts of kings, It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God's When mercy seasons justice. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Severe Mercy quotes by R.C. Ryan
#31. I was never in any danger, Cal." Cora's tone was patient.
"So you say.But you admitted that the heavy snow brought down a tree right beside your tent. You could be lying out there right now, pinned and gravely wounded,and we wouldn't have a clue."
"Cal,I always have my cell phone under my pillow."
"A lot of good that would do if you were crushed beneath a tree. The calendar may say it's springtime, but somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature. If it isn't a tree falling,it could be an avalanche. And there you are, all alone in the wilderness,at the mercy of any number of dangers."
Cora gave a long,deep sigh. "You know I'm not going to give up my excursions. It's where I do my best work.I love it too much to ever stop."
"And I'm not going to stop worrying. I've been doing it too long."
"Now,children," Jesse said with a laugh. "There will be no fighting at the table. #Quote by R.C. Ryan
Severe Mercy quotes by Seth D.
#32. Man should strive to be a gentleman in a barbaric world, merciful in a merciless time and humane in an inhumane culture. #Quote by Seth D.
Severe Mercy quotes by Hebrews 4 16
#33. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may find mercy and grace in our time of need. #Quote by Hebrews 4 16
Severe Mercy quotes by Byron Hyde
#34. Several years ago I was lecturing in British Columbia. Dr [Simon] Wessely was speaking and he gave a thoroughly enjoyable lecture on M.E. and CFS. He had the hundreds of staff physicians laughing themselves silly over the invented griefs of the M.E. and CFS patients who according to Dr Wessely had no physical illness what so ever but a lot of misguided imagination. I was appalled at his sheer effectiveness, the amazing control he had over the minds of the staid physicians….His message was very clear and very simple. If I can paraphrase him: "M.E. and CFS are non-existent illnesses with no pathology what-so-ever. There is no reason why they all cannot return to work tomorrow.

The next morning I left by car with my crew and arrived in Kelowna British Columbia that afternoon. We were staying at a patient's house who had severe M.E. with dysautanomia and was for all purposes bed ridden or house bound most of the day. That morning she had received a phone call from her insurance company in Toronto. (Toronto is approximately 2742 miles from Vancouver). The insurance call was as follows and again I paraphrase:
"Physicians at a University of British Columbia University have demonstrated that there is no pathological or physiological basis for M.E. or CFS. Your disability benefits have been stopped as of this month. You will have to pay back the funds we have sent you previously. We will contact you shortly with the exact amount you owe us".

That night I s #Quote by Byron Hyde
Severe Mercy quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#35. It would be against God's character to give us a promise that our children will be saved if we raise them in a certain way. That would mean that he was telling us to trust in something other than Christ and his grace and mercy. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Severe Mercy quotes by John Bunyan
#36. But verily that sudden rushing wind was, as if an angel had come upon me; but both it, and the salutation, I will leave until the day of judgment: only this I say, it commanded a great calm in my soul; it persuaded me there might be hope: it showed me, as I thought, what the sin unpardonable was, and that my soul had yet the blessed privilege to flee to Jesus Christ for mercy. #Quote by John Bunyan
Severe Mercy quotes by Wendell Berry
#37. Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Severe Mercy quotes by Yann Martel
#38. I must say a word about fear. It's is life's only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unerring ease. it begins in your mind, always. #Quote by Yann Martel
Severe Mercy quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#39. Most people believe that the Christian commandments are intentionally a little too severe #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Severe Mercy quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#40. Lightning has no mercy. #Quote by Victoria Aveyard
Severe Mercy quotes by Arthur Wallis
#41. ... the intercessor is not so much like a lamp in the electric circuit as a radio which is both a receiver and transmitter. The receiving aspect is often quite overlooked in the ministry of intercession. Communion with God should surely be a two-way traffic. We speak of prayer as our 'coming to the mercy seat', but when God first spoke about this to Moses He said nothing about it as a place where Moses would speak with Him, but rather as a place where He would speak with Moses (Exod. 2 5 : 22). In other words, the mercy seat was to be first a place of revelation, and then a place of intercession.
This revelation may indeed be given to the intercessor as he prays, but it will often be necessary to tune in and hear what eaven is saying that he may know how to pray. To learn how to talk to God we must first learn how to listen to God. #Quote by Arthur Wallis
Severe Mercy quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#42. The ancient priest who had taken Father Angel's place and whose name no one had bothered to find out awaited God's mercy stretched out casually in a hammock, tortured by arthritis and the insomnia of doubt while the lizards and rats fought over the inheritance of the nearby church. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Severe Mercy quotes by Anonymous
#43. 6Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. 7Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. #Quote by Anonymous
Severe Mercy quotes by Washington Irving
#44. ....It was to complete his marriage with Maimuna, the daughter of Al Hareth, the Helalite. He had become betrothed to her on his arrival at Mecca, but had post-poned the nuptials until after he had concluded the rites of pilgrimage. This was doubtless another marriage of policy, for Maimuna was fifty-one years of age, and a widow, but the connection gained him two powerful proselytes. One was Khaled Ibn al Waled, a nephew of the widow, an intrepid warrior who had come near destroy-
ing Mahomet at the battle of Ohod. He now became one of the most victorious champions of Islamism, and by his prowess obtained the appellation of " The Sword of God." The other proselyte was Khaled's friend, Amru Ibn al Aass ; the same who assailed Mahomet with poetry and satire at the commencement of his prophetic career ; who had been an ambassador from the Koreishites to the king of Abyssinia, to obtain the surrender of the fugitive Moslems, and who was henceforth destined with his sword to carry victoriously into foreign lands the faith he had once so strenuously opposed.
Note. - Maimuna was the last spouse of the prophet, and, old as she was at her marriage, survived all his other wives. She died many years after him, in a pavilion at Serif, under the same tree in the shade of which her nuptial tent had been pitched, and was there interred. The pious historian, Al Jannabi, who styles himself "a poor servant of Allah, hoping for the pardon of his sins through the mercy of God," vis #Quote by Washington Irving
Severe Mercy quotes by David A. Bednar
#45. I testify that the tender mercies of the Lord are real and that they do not occur randomly or merely by coincidence. Often, the Lord's timing of His tender mercies helps us to both discern and acknowledge them. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Severe Mercy quotes by John H Richardson
#46. Most of the reasons for late-term abortions have to do with severe fetal deformities, but when I found out that dwarfism was also a reason for late-term abortions that was tough. I did a book on dwarfs and know a lot of them, and that was a shock. That's a decision I could not feel comfortable with. #Quote by John H Richardson
Severe Mercy quotes by Julian Of Norwich
#47. It is most impossible that we should beseech mercy and grace, and not have it. #Quote by Julian Of Norwich
Severe Mercy quotes by Alice McDermott
#48. We are at the mercy of time, and for all the ways we are remembered, a sea of things will be lost. But how much is contained in what lingers! #Quote by Alice McDermott
Severe Mercy quotes by Elona Washington
#49. Those years of anger weren't just directed inward and towards others, I was also angry with God. As a kid, when I sang songs in the children's choir and memorized verses in bible study, I was told there was a God who loved and protected us. He was a jealous God and could be angered, yes, but He always showed grace and mercy towards His people. I must not have been one of His people. He never protected me. As a matter of fact, I remember crying and pleading to God to make it stop when I was in DC being raped at five years old. I thought he heard my prayers when I moved to New Jersey. But when the abuse became worse and more frequent, it was easy for me to conclude God's protection didn't apply to me. #Quote by Elona Washington
Severe Mercy quotes by Dante Alighieri
#50. High justice would in no way be debased
if ardent love should cancel instantly
the debts these penitents must satisfy. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
