Sin quotes by Thomas Brooks
#1. Those sins that seem most sweet in life, will prove most bitter in death #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Sin quotes by Robert Edwards
#2. Soon it will be a sin of parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children. #Quote by Robert Edwards
Sin quotes by Oscar Wilde
#3. For what are called criminals nowadays are not criminals at all. Starvation, and not sin, is the parent of modern crime. That indeed is the reason why our criminals are, as a class, so absolutely uninteresting from any psychological point of view. They are not marvellous Macbeths and terrible Vautrins. They are merely what ordinary, respectable, commonplace people would be if they had not got enough to eat. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Sin quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#4. Sometimes my sin is not what I do; it also describes what I don't do when I know I should. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Sin quotes by Voltaire
#5. It is amusing that a virtue is made of the vice of chastity; and it's a pretty odd sort of chastity at that, which leads men straight into the sin of Onan, and girls to the waning of their color. #Quote by Voltaire
Sin quotes by Edward Rutherfurd
#6. Human nature, gentleman. It is original sin that leads men to misfortune, every time. I am a speculator in the market, gentlemen, and that is part of God's plan. Men only learn through suffering. So I punish human weakness, and God rewards me. #Quote by Edward Rutherfurd
Sin quotes by Darrel Ray
#7. Throughout adolescence, Muslim men receive strong messages about male dominance in Marriage. The Koran is highly male-focused, with women being of little importance. Mohammed married as many women as he wanted, even a nine-year-old girl. Polygamy was acceptable and women were given in marriage with little consideration. Rules and punishments for women are far harsher than for men. [ ... ] Women are told that their purpose is to please the man and have children. Men are taught that sex with an in infidel woman, especially in another country, is not a sin against Allah. For a Muslim woman, sex with any man except her husband is a crime. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Sin quotes by Jacqueline Carey
#8. We pay for sins we do not remember, and seek to do a will we can scarce fathom. That is what it is, to be a god's chosen. #Quote by Jacqueline Carey
Sin quotes by Etienne Gilson
#9. When man subverted order he did a great deal more than merely fall away from the rationality of his nature, diminish his own humanity, which is all that he does in Aristostle's ethics, nor he did merely compromise his destiny by an error, as it happens in the Plathonic myths; he brought disorder into the divine order, and presents the unhappy spectacle of a being in revolt against Being. [...] Every time a man sins he renews this act of revolt and prefers himself to God; in thus preferring himself, he separates himself from God; and in separating himself, he deprives himself of the sole end in which he can find beatitude and by that very fact condemns himself to misery. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Sin quotes by Tim Chester
#10. The main thing that prevents us from understanding the Bible aright is not a lack of hermeneutical skills but our sin. Our #Quote by Tim Chester
Sin quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#11. When God shook Israel awake from her violent slumber, He said, "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy" (Ezekiel 16:49, emphasis added). #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Sin quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#12. My soul always reverts to the Old Testament and to Shakespeare. There at least one feels that it's human beings talking. There people hate, people love, people murder their enemy and curse his descendants through all generations, there people sin. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Sin quotes by Judith Lynne Hanna
#13. Through dance, people meet demons, ward off death, shake off sin and evil, come to terms with life crises, mediate paradoxes, resolve conflict, revitalize the past to re-create the present, enhance their self-concept and body image, attract attention, assert themselves, confront the strong, and persuade others to change their ways. #Quote by Judith Lynne Hanna
Sin quotes by Dave Hunt
#14. We desperately need to understand something of the magnitude of sin, of evil, and of gross wickedness in this world if we are to appreciate our redemption. God's love, grace, and mercy shine all the brighter against the awful reality of evil. Indeed, the very existence of evil is a powerful proof of God's existence and holiness. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Sin quotes by Carolyn Wells
#15. The wages of sin is alimony. #Quote by Carolyn Wells
Sin quotes by John Newton
#16. Those whom [the Lord] teaches, are always increasing in knowledge, both of themselves and of him. The heart is deep, and, like Ezekiel's vision, presents so many chambers of imagery, one within another, that it requires time to get a considerable acquaintance with it, and we shall never know it thoroughly. It is now more than twenty-eight years since the Lord began to open mine to my own view; and from that time to this, almost every day has discovered to me something which until then was unobserved; and the farther I go, the more I seem convinced that I have entered but a little way. A person who travels in some parts of Derbyshire may easily be satisfied that the country is cavernous; but how large, how deep, how numerous the caverns may be, which are hidden from us by the surface of the ground, and what is contained in them - are questions which our most discerning inquirers cannot fully answer…
And if our own hearts are beyond our comprehension, how much more incomprehensible is the heart of Jesus! If sin abounds in us - grace and love superabound in him! His ways and thoughts are higher than ours, as the heavens are higher than the earth; his love has a height, and depth, and length, and breadth, which passes all knowledge! The riches of his grace are unsearchable riches! Eph. 3:8, Eph. 3:18, Eph. 3:19. All that we have received or can receive from him, or know of him in this life, compared with what he is in himself, or what he has for us - is but as the drop of a #Quote by John Newton
Sin quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#17. The more sin is rationalized, the greater the possibility of destruction by Satan's wolves. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Sin quotes by William A. Henry III
#18. It is a commonplace observation that liberals believe in the perfectibility of man while conservatives believe in the endurance of original sin. Superficially, that would suggest that conservatives take a more understanding and indulgent view of individual lapses, while liberals take a more harshly judgmental one. In fact, we know, quite the opposite is the case. #Quote by William A. Henry III
Sin quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#19. Forgiveness was work, Eduardo told victims' families
but so, then, was love, and deciding what was right, and defending it. Recusing yourself from judgment so you won't be tainted by the aggressor's sin is the same as turning away from empathy so you won't be touched by the victim's pain. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Sin quotes by Shane Claiborne
#20. The greatest sin of political imagination: Thinking there is no other way except the filthy rotten system we have today. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Sin quotes by Joanne Greenberg
#21. I have found this to be true, that one sin begets a dozen others. #Quote by Joanne Greenberg
Sin quotes by Preston Sturges
#22. Now I've laid me down to die I pray my neighbors not to pry Too deeply into sins that I Not only cannot here deny But much enjoyed as life flew by. #Quote by Preston Sturges
Sin quotes by Annie Dillard
#23. If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?"
"No", said the priest, "not if you did not know."
"Then why," asked the Eskimo earnestly, "did you tell me? #Quote by Annie Dillard
Sin quotes by William Shakespeare
#24. One sin another doth provoke. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Sin quotes by Wesley Hill
#25. I know that whatever the complex origins of my own homosexuality are, there have been conscious choices I've made to indulge - and therefore to intensify, probably - my homoerotic inclinations. As I look back over the course of my life, I regret the nights I have given in to temptations to lust that pulsed like hot, itching sores in my mind. And so I cling to this image - washed. I am washed, sanctified, justified through the work of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Whenever I look back on my baptism, I can remember that God has cleansed the stains of homosexual sin from the crevasses of my mind, heart, and body and included me in his family, the church, where I can find support, comfort, and provocation toward Christian maturity. #Quote by Wesley Hill
Sin quotes by Gregory Palamas
#26. Even when your body does nothing, sin can be active in your mind. When your soul inwardly repulses the evil one's attack by means of prayer, attention, remembrance of death, godly sorrow and mourning the body, too, takes its share of holiness, having acquired freedom from evil actions. This is what the Lord meant by saying that someone who cleans the outside of the cup has not cleansed it inside, but clean the inside and the whole cup will be clean #Quote by Gregory Palamas
Sin quotes by Lucian Bane
#27. Bring Solomon Gorge to God that he might purge the sin from this evil land! #Quote by Lucian Bane
Sin quotes by Bob Ross
#28. Trees cover up a multitude of sins. #Quote by Bob Ross
Sin quotes by William Shakespeare
#29. Antioch, farewell! for wisdom sees, those men blush not in actions blacker than the night, will 'schew no course to keep them from the light. One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke. Poison and treason are the hands of sin; Ay, and the targets to put off the shame. Then, lest my life be cropped to keep you clear, By flight I'll shun the danger which I fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Sin quotes by Vachel Lindsay
#30. This is the sin against the Holy Ghost: - To speak of bloody power as right divine, And call on God to guard each vile chief's house, And for such chiefs, turn men to wolves and swine. #Quote by Vachel Lindsay
Sin quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#31. Childhood: the period of human life intermediate between the idiocy of infancy and the folly of youth - two removes from the sin of manhood and three from the remorse of age. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Sin quotes by Anonymous
#32. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.
Romans 6:6 #Quote by Anonymous
Sin quotes by Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib
#33. Oh, Lord, it is not the sins I have committed that I regret, but those which I have had no opportunity to commit #Quote by Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib
Sin quotes by Jeremiah Burroughs
#34. I am discontented because I have not these things which God never yet promised me, and therefore I sin much against the Gospel, and against the grace of faith. #Quote by Jeremiah Burroughs
Sin quotes by Thomas Merton
#35. The devil is no fool. He can get people feeling about heaven the way they ought to feel about hell. He can make them fear the means of grace the way they do not fear sin. And he does so, not by light but by obscurity, not by realities but by shadows; not by clarity and substance, but by dreams and the creatures of psychosis. And men are so poor in intellect that a few cold chills down their spine will be enough to keep them from ever finding out the truth about anything. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Sin quotes by Robert Greene
#36. Twere sin to stain fair Venus' courts with blood #Quote by Robert Greene
Sin quotes by John Dryden
#37. Having mourned your sin, for outward Eden lost, find paradise within. #Quote by John Dryden
Sin quotes by Avi Steinberg
#38. An officer on an elevator in the Tower once told me he was proud of his job keeping bad guys out of society. "Someone's gotta do it, right?" - but that didn't stop him from going to church every week, for almost twenty years now, and confessing to what he called "the sin of locking a human being in a cage. #Quote by Avi Steinberg
Sin quotes by Archibald Alexander
#39. No one was ever saved because his sins were small; no one was ever rejected on account of the greatness of his sins. Where sin abounded, grace shall much more abound. #Quote by Archibald Alexander
Sin quotes by John Angell James
#40. We should never forget that our time is among the talents for which we must give account at the judgment of God. Time being not the least precious of these, will be required with a strictness proportionate to its value. Let us tremble at this idea, as well we may. We must be tried not only for what we have done - but for what we had time to do, yet neglected to do it. Not only for the hours spent in sin - but for those wasted in idleness. Let us beware of that mode of spending time which some call killing it, for this murder,like others, will not always be concealed - the hours destroyed in secret will appear when we least expect it, to the unspeakable terror and amazement of our souls - they arise from the dead, and fly away to heaven, where they might have carried better news, and there tell sad tales of us, which we shall be sure to hear of again, when we hold up our hands at the bar, and they shall come as so many swift witnesses against us! #Quote by John Angell James
Sin quotes by Ovid
#41. He who has it in his power to commit sin, is less inclined to do so. The very idea of being able, weakens the desire. #Quote by Ovid
Sin quotes by Matthew Pearl
#42. There was still the temptation to believe the world was a mere trap for human sin. But sin, the way he saw it, was only the failure of an imperfectly made being to keep a perfect law. #Quote by Matthew Pearl
Sin quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#43. Christmas is the beachhead of God's campaign against sin and sadness, darkness and death, fear and frustration. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Sin quotes by Voltaire
#44. Needless to say since Christ's expiation not one single Christian has been known to sin, or die. #Quote by Voltaire
Sin quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#45. Busyness is like sin: kill it, or it will be killing you. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Sin quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#46. O, brothers! let us leave the shame and sin Of taking vainly in a plaintive mood, The holy name of Grief
holy herein, That, by the grief of One, came all our good. #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sin quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#47. Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pin pricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things that are so wrong. Nothing of course justifies sin. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Sin quotes by Stasi Eldredge
#48. Christianity is not a promise to enjoy a life without pain nor to be given a shortcut through it. It is a promise that pain, sorrow, sin - ours and others' - will not swallow us, destroy us, define us, or have the final word. Jesus has won the victory. And in him so have we. #Quote by Stasi Eldredge
Sin quotes by Britt Merrick
#49. Martin Luther explaining the attitude we ought to have toward those who offend us, said Christians should "grieve more over the sin of their offenders than over the loss or offense to themselves." This is radical relational thinking. And they do this that they may recall those offenders from their sin rather than avenge the wrongs they themselves have suffered. #Quote by Britt Merrick
Sin quotes by Carol Lynn Pearson
#50. Practice Makes Perfect
I'll know better next time
Than to even begin;
Everything's easier on the second try
Especially sin. #Quote by Carol Lynn Pearson
Sin quotes by Linda Nichols
#51. I know I was wrong. If i could go back and do it over, I would. I wish I could undo it all."
I know that." Grandma reached over and put a twisted hand on hers. "'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.' Isaiah one eighteen."
I've done terrible things."
Don't make no difference. You can't out-sin the cross. #Quote by Linda Nichols
Sin quotes by Dan   Barker
#52. The next time believers tell you that 'separation of church and state' does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word 'trinity.' The word 'trinity' appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin.

Sin quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#53. Individuals in private life, meanwhile, had quite forgiven Hester Prynne for her frailty; nay, more, they had begun to look upon the scarlet letter as the token, not of that one sin for which she had borne so long and dreary a penance, but of her many good deeds since. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Sin quotes by Thomas Brooks
#54. Till men have faith in Christ, their best services are but glorious sins. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Sin quotes by Kassia
#55. Wealth covers sin - the poor / Are naked as a pin. #Quote by Kassia
Sin quotes by Richard Sibbes
#56. Sin is not so sweet in the committing as it is heavy and bitter in the reckoning. #Quote by Richard Sibbes
Sin quotes by Mark Twain
#57. Near by is an interesting ruin - the meagre remains of an ancient heathen temple - a place where human sacrifices were offered up in those old bygone days when the simple child of Nature, yielding momentarily to sin when sorely tempted, acknowledged his error when calm reflection had shown it him, and came forward with noble frankness and offered up his grandmother as an atoning sacrifice - in those old days when the luckless sinner could keep on cleansing his conscience and achieving periodical happiness as long as his relations held out; #Quote by Mark Twain
Sin quotes by Richard John Neuhaus
#58. Consumerism is, quite precisely, the consuming of life by the things consumed. It is living in a manner that is measured by having rather than being ... and consumerism is hardly the sin of the rich. The poor, driven by discontent and envy, may be as consumed by what they do not have as the rich are consumed by what they do have. The question is not, certainly not most importantly, a question about economics. It is first and foremost a cultural and moral problem requiring a cultural and moral remedy. #Quote by Richard John Neuhaus
Sin quotes by Brent Weeks
#59. Count Drake had told him that life was precious, that suicide was a coward's way out, a sin against the God by flinging his gift back in his holy face. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Sin quotes by Mark Twain
#60. It was as bright as glory, and you'd have a little glimpse of tree-tops a-plunging about away off yonder in the storm, hundreds of yards further than you could see before; dark as sin again in a second, and now you'd hear the thunder let go with an awful crash, and then go rumbling, grumbling, tumbling, down the sky towards the under side of the world, like rolling empty barrels down-stairs - where #Quote by Mark Twain
Sin quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#61. When you indulge yourself in bitter thought, it feels so satisfying to fantasize about payback. But slowly and surely it will enlarge your capacity for self-pity, erode your ability to trust and enjoy relationships, and generally drain the happiness out of your daily life. Sin always the conscience, locks you in the prison of your own defensiveness and rationalizations, and eats you up slowly from the inside. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Sin quotes by Bertrand Russell
#62. But even when a man has offended against his own rational code, I doubt whether a sense of sin is the best method of arriving at a better way of life. There is in the sense of sin something abject, something lacking in self-respect. No good was ever done to any one by the loss of self-respect. The rational man will regard his own undesirable acts, as he regards those of others, as acts produced by certain circumstances, and to be avoided either by a fuller realization that they are undesirable, or, where this is possible, by avoidance of the circumstances that caused them. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Sin quotes by Oscar Wilde
#63. The sin was mine; I did not understand. So now is music prisoned in her cave, Save where some ebbing desultory wave Frets with its restless whirls this meagre strand ... #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Sin quotes by Denise McCluggage
#64. Change is the only constant. Hanging on is the only sin. #Quote by Denise McCluggage
Sin quotes by William Cowper
#65. When nations are to perish in their sins, 'tis in the Church the leprosy begins. #Quote by William Cowper
Sin quotes by Samanth Subramanian
#66. It is the postscript to the war that offers the most revelatory and startling commentary on Dutugemunu's life. Despite his newfound wealth and his peactime luxuries, Dutugemunu wanders gloomily about his palace, too often remembering the carnage he wrought on the battlefield and worried over the deep karmic deficits he has incurred. The elders of the Sangha, the Buddhist clergy, notice this and send a delegation of eight monks to minister to his anguish.

'In truth, venerable sirs,' Dutugemunu tells the monks when they arrive, 'how can there be comfort to me in that I caused the destruction of a great army of myriads of men?'

'There is no hindrance on the way to heaven because of your acts,' one of the monks assures his king. Slaughtering Tamils is no moral mistake. Only the equivalent of one and a half men died at Dutugemunu's hands, according to the Sangha's official arithmetic, because the Tamils 'were heretical and evil and dies as though they were animals. You will make the Buddha's faith shine in many ways. Therefore, Lord of Men, cast away your mental confusion.'

Being thus exhorted, the great king was comforted; his kill rate would never disturb him again. He does, however, recall that, once upon a breakfast, he ate a red-pepper pod without consciously setting aside a portion of it for the Sangha, as was the royal practice. 'For this,' he decides, 'penance must be done by me.' A hierarchy of sin springs into being, in which dishonourin #Quote by Samanth Subramanian
Sin quotes by Richelle Mead
#67. Because there is no greater evil than ignorance and the destruction of genius. Ignorance has been responsible for more death, more bigotry, and more sin than any other force. It is the destroyer of mankind. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Sin quotes by W. H. Auden
#68. Although you be, as I am, one of those
Who feel a Christian ought to write in prose,
For poetry is magic: born in sin, you
May read it to exorcies the Gentile in you. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Sin quotes by Bill Johnson
#69. In the old, sin contaminates. In the new, righteousness contaminates. It's a different day. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Sin quotes by Shannon Dittemore
#70. A righteous God isn't bound by time. He has an eternity to make things right. #Quote by Shannon Dittemore
Sin quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#71. It is the mark of a true saint that his sorrows remind him of his sins, and his sorrow for sin drives him to his God. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Sin quotes by W.H. Davies
#72. I had Ambition, by which sin
The angels fell:
I climbed and,step by step, O Lord,
Ascended into Hell. #Quote by W.H. Davies
Sin quotes by Gene Edwards
#73. All sin was now accumulated in one place - in him. Divinity #Quote by Gene Edwards
Sin quotes by Lynne Withey
#74. The custom of confession seemed designed to encourage sin by granting ready forgiveness.
Neither Abigail nor any member of her family ever wavered in their preference for life in America over life in Europe. In France they lived far grander style than they ever lived in Braintree. ...her unshakable belief was that America was superior to Europe - superiority based on simplicity, its supposed lack of extreme wealth and class distinctions, its religion and its emphasis on family #Quote by Lynne Withey
Sin quotes by Justina Ireland
#75. See, the problem in this world ain't sinners, or even the dead. It is men who will step on anyone who stands in the way of their pursuit of power. Luckily there will always be people like me to stop them #Quote by Justina Ireland
Sin quotes by John Milton
#76. Laws can discover sin, but not remove it #Quote by John Milton
Sin quotes by Toni Morrison
#77. Marriages performed within,' read the sign next to the coffeehouse door, underneath in small letters a verse that combined warning with a sales pitch: 'When lawless lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Sin quotes by John Von Neumann
#78. Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Sin quotes by Craig Groeschel
#79. Like a sneeze, sin feels good at first, but it leaves a huge mess. #Quote by Craig Groeschel
Sin quotes by J.C. Ryle
#80. Pride cast Adam out of paradise. He was not content with the place God assigned him. He tried to raise himself, and fell. Thus sin, sorrow and death entered into this world by pride. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Sin quotes by T. S. Eliot
#81. It's harder to confess the sin that no one believes in Than the crime that everyone can appreciate. For the crime is in relation to the law And the sin is in relation to the sinner. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Sin quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#82. There are many men who never know much of their vileness till after the blood of Christ has been sprinkled on their consciences, or even till they have been many years God's children. I met, some time ago, with the case of a Christian, who was positively pardoned before he had a strong sense of sin. "I did not," he said, "feel my vileness, until I heard a voice, 'I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions;' and after that, I thought how black I had been. I did not think of my filthiness," said he, "till after I saw that I had been washed. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Sin quotes by Penelope Douglas
#83. You're poisonous, toxic, bad for my health. You're greedy, sly, way too stealth. You hurt me, use me, mistreat and abuse me. But your apologetic eyes, As you tell your lies, Draw me back in, And I forgive every sin. I take you back, Your love is my crack. I'm clearly a masochist, You're my personal terrorist. My tormentor, My lover, My bully, My friend. #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Sin quotes by Katie McGarry
#84. Hate the sin, not the sinner, isn't that what good people say? Or are you asking yourself at what point does the sin overtake the sinner? #Quote by Katie McGarry
Sin quotes by Monica Furlong
#85. If envy was not such a tearing thing to feel it would be the most comic of sins. It is usually, if not always, based on a complete misunderstanding of another person's situation. #Quote by Monica Furlong
Sin quotes by Michelle Hughes
#86. I wanted to F*ck the fear right out of her (Sin) #Quote by Michelle Hughes
Sin quotes by Pete Hise
#87. But unforgiveness isn't the answer. It never rights the wrongs you've experienced, and if you've nursed unforgiveness and self-pity, then something has begun to grow inside of you. It has likely become toxic, and you can't afford to let it infect your life one more day. You've got to deal with the sin. #Quote by Pete Hise
Sin quotes by Pete Wentz
#88. I wonder if killing yourself is the only thing you can control in your entire life, and that's why it's a sin. Because you're beating God at his own game. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Sin quotes by Robert L. Reymond
#89. Man in his raw, natural state as he comes from the womb is morally and spiritually corrupt in disposition and character. Every part of his being-his mind, his will, his emotions, his affections, his conscience, his body-has been affected by sin (this is what is meant by the doctrine of total depravity) #Quote by Robert L. Reymond
Sin quotes by Karen Swallow Prior
#90. ... mischief, ... arises not from our living in the world, but from the world living in us; occupying our hearts, and monopolizing our affections. #Quote by Karen Swallow Prior
Sin quotes by Markus Zusak
#91. caughtoutedness. Some examples: People jumping out of alleys. Schoolteachers suddenly being aware of every sin you've ever committed. Police showing up at the door each time a leaf turns or a distant gate slams shut. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Sin quotes by Amy Carmichael
#92. Do not fight the thing in detail: turn from it. Look ONLY at your Lord. Sing. Read. Work. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Sin quotes by Angela Panayotopulos
#93. Hell and Heaven are states of being, not destinations. They are worlds we carry within. Don't expect to find angels and demons -- not in the way you've envisioned them. As God is called Allah, so Man is called Monster. Don't be fooled by titles. Call a skunk a rose and it will continue to reek.

Hydras do not crawl out from between the weatherworn pages of fairytale anthologies. On the contrary, they ride the subway and order food at the local drive-through and enjoy stolen kisses at the cinema. Only one head is visible to the naked eye. They tend to avoid reflective surfaces.

Each head is a sin: each belch of fire is a sin put to action. But you should know that the shadows differ. There may be seven heads, or three, or one. Those with one head are particularly tricky. Who's to say if they're human or hydra? You'd have to kiss them, bite them. You would know them by their mouth. The name of their sin is tattooed on the inside of their bottom lip, so they can lick and taste its sweetness. #Quote by Angela Panayotopulos
Sin quotes by Billy Graham
#94. [Christ's] goodness is still a rebuke to our badness; His purity still shows up our impurities; His sinlessness still reveals our sinfulness; and unless we allow [Jesus] to destroy the evil within us, the evil within us still wants to destroy Him. This is the conflict of the ages. #Quote by Billy Graham
Sin quotes by Octave Mirbeau
#95. You see how all occidental art loses by the fact that the magnificent expressions of love have been denied it. With us, eroticism is poor, stupid and frigid. It is always presented in ambiguous attitudes of sin, while here it preserves all its vital scope, all its passionate poetry and the stupendous pulse of all nature. But you are only a european lover ... a poor, timid, chilly little soul. #Quote by Octave Mirbeau
Sin quotes by Tony Reinke
#96. ignited and sustained by God. Indwelling sin provides us with marvelous proof of God's sustaining grace. #Quote by Tony Reinke
Sin quotes by Warren Farrell
#97. In the past we believed both sexes were born with original sin. Today, we have come to unconsciously believe in the original sin of boys, but the original innocence of girls. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Sin quotes by Max Lucado
#98. Confession is a radical reliance on grace. A proclamation of our trust in God's goodness. "What I did was bad," we acknowledge, "but your grace is greater than my sin, so I confess it." If our understanding of grace is small, our confession will be small: reluctant, hesitant, hedged with excuses and qualifications, full of fear of punishment. But great grace creates an honest confession. #Quote by Max Lucado
Sin quotes by Hozier
#99. No masters or kings when the ritual begins [making love]
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean #Quote by Hozier
Sin quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#100. We need to gather everyone we can.
Damien scoffed. Uh, boss, hate to be a pall, but I think everyone we can gather is currently in this room.
Sin paused to look at Simi, Xirena, Damien, Kat, Kish, and Xypher. It was a pitiful number of defenders. But it was all the world had. In that case, we need to seriously arm ourselves.
Damien crossed himself. Hail Mary, full of grace-
What are you doing? Kish asked. You're not Catholic.
Yeah but I'm feeling really religious all of a sudden and it seemed like a good idea. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Sin quotes by Jeannette Walls
#102. Mom told us we would have to go shoplifting.
Isn't that a sin?" I asked Mom.
Not exactly," Mom said. "God doesn't mind you bending the rules a little if you have a good reason. It's sort of like justifiable homicide. This is justifiable pilfering. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Sin quotes by Anonymous
#103. Jesus was handed over to those who killed him "by God's set purpose and foreknowledge" (Acts 2:23). Jesus' death was not an accident; it had to happen. At the same time, seeing the death of Christ as satisfaction for sin, as divine punishment, does not mean that there is a rift in the Godhead between an angry Father and the loving Son he punishes. Through Christ's death, expiation of sins, righteousness, and eternal life are secured for believers. God's grace does not nullify the satisfaction and merit of Christ but is the ultimate ground for that merit. It is the love of God that sent the Son into the world (John 3:16), and on the cross Jesus remained the beloved Son. #Quote by Anonymous
Sin quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#104. As the hound follows the hare, never ceasing in its running, ever drawing nearer in the chase, with unhurrying and imperturbed pace, so does God follow the fleeing soul by His Divine grace. And though in sin or in human love, away from God it seeks to hide itself, Divine grace follows after, unwearyingly follows ever after, till the soul feels its pressure forcing it to turn to Him alone in that never ending pursuit. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Sin quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#105. It was Christianity which first painted the devil on the worlds walls; It was Christianity which first brought sin into the world. Belief in the cure which it offered has now been shaken to it's deepest roots; but belief in the sickness which it taught and propagated continues to exists. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Sin quotes by Arsenius The Great
#106. Brethren, the just man shall scarcely be saved. What, then, will become of the sinner? #Quote by Arsenius The Great
Sin quotes by Robert Murray McCheyne
#107. Some of you seek for faith much in the same way as you would dig for a well. You turn the eye inward upon yourself and search amidst the depths of your polluted heart to find if faith is there; you search amid all your feelings at sermons and sacraments to see if faith is there; and still you find nothing but sin and disappointment. Learn Martha's plan. She looked full in the face of Jesus; she saw his dust-soiled feet and sullied garment, and his eye of more than human tenderness. She drank in his word: 'I am the resurrection and the life'; and in spite of all she saw and all she felt, she could not but believe. The discovery that Jesus made of his love and power, as the head of dead believers and the head of living believers, revived her fainting soul, and she cried: 'Yea, Lord, I believe.' Faith comes by hearing the voice of Jesus. #Quote by Robert Murray McCheyne
Sin quotes by George Gillespie
#108. All your winning or losing of a good conscience, is in your first buying; for such is the deceitfulness of sin, and the cunning conveyance of that old serpent, that if his head be once entering in, his whole body will easily follow after; and if he make you handsomely to swallow gnats at first, he will make you swallow camels ere all be done. Oh, happy they who dash the little ones of Babylon against the stones (Ps. 137:9)! #Quote by George Gillespie
Sin quotes by Cassandra Clare
#109. I may not believe in sin," he said, "but I do feel guilt. We Shadowhunters live by a code, and that code isn't flexible. Honor, fault, penance, those are real to us, and they have nothing to do with religion and everything to do with who we are. This is who I am, Clary," he said desperately. #Quote by Cassandra Clare

Sin quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#112. Henry's face went red in anger as he blustered at her audacity. It wasn't often anyone got the better of him, and Sin knew no woman had ever flummoxed him before. Not even Eleanor.
"You are willing to declare war for him ?" Henry asked indignantly.
She didn't hesitate with her response. "I am. Are you?"
Sin closed his eyes as he heard the most precious words of his life. She who believed in nothing but peace was willing to fight for him. He could die happily knowing that.
Still, he couldn't let her do this. Henry would not rest until he buried her and her clan. A king's reputation was all he had, and if Henry lost face ...
"Callie," Sin said, waiting until her gaze met his. "Thank you, but you can't do this. You can't start a war over me. I'm not worth the cost."
"You are worth everything to me. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Sin quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#113. Apart from Christ, we cannot stand against our own hearts. The verses above presume that we will struggle with sin, but they warn us not to declare any sin a "sanctifiable" character quality, even if through it we may learn valuable lessons about life. Learning lessons is not God's first priority for his children. Transformed character is. I learned here that God may, in his providence, bring good from my past, but the good that comes is not because of the sin, but in spite of it. It is very tempting to see "good" in those things that tempt us to sin or lead us to sin because then we don't seem nearly as corrupt as Original Sin renders us. According to God, sinful temptations are inclinations to do something or become something that cost Jesus his life for my sake. We are not to try to ransom it on our own terms. Suggesting that our sin is good or produces good is tantamount to calling cancer good health. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Sin quotes by Lee Strobel
#114. Only by facing my sin could God use it to change me for the better. The Bible warns that God's discipline isn't pleasant, but in the end the changes God produces in our character are worth it. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Sin quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#115. A tender heart is the best defence against sin, and the best preparation for heaven. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Sin quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#116. God has nothing to say to the self-righteous. Unless you humble yourself before Him in the dust, and confess before Him your iniquities and sins, the gate of heaven, which is open only for sinners, saved by grace, must be shut against you forever. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Sin quotes by Ellen G. White
#117. The great controversy is ended. Sin and sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through the vast creation. From Him who created all, flow life and light and gladness, throughout the realms of illimitable space. From the minutest atom to the greatest world, all things, animate and inanimate, in their unshadowed beauty and perfect joy, declare that God is love. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Sin quotes by Richard Rohr
#118. It is crucial that Jesus is led by the Spirit. There are two wildernesses, two darknesses in the spiritual journey. One you go into by your own stupidity, by your sin, blindness, ignorance and mistakes. We all do that. But there's another darkness. The holy darkness is the darkness that God leads us into, through and beyond. This is a necessary darkness for the journey. In a certain sense, God's darkness is a much better teacher than light. There comes a time when you have to either go deeper into faith or you will turn back, when you have to live without knowing or you lose faith altogether. So we have the Spirit leading Jesus into the wilderness, to face the essential darkness. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Sin quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#119. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert
Sin quotes by Ann Voskamp
#120. The act of sacrificing thank offerings to God - even for the bread and cup of cost, for cancer and crucifixion - this prepares the way for God to show us His fullest salvation from bitter, angry, resentful lives and from all sin that #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Sin quotes by Sally Lloyd-Jones
#121. But Jesus could see inside people. And inside, in their hearts, Jesus saw that they did not love God or other people. They were running away from God, and they thought they didn't need a rescuer. They thought they were good enough because they kept the rules. But sin had stopped their hearts from working properly. And their hearts were hard and cold.
"This woman knows she's a sinner," Jesus told them. "She knows she'll never be good enough. She knows she needs me to rescue her. That's why she loves me so much. You look down on this woman because you don't look up to God. She is sinful on the outside-but you are sinful on the inside. #Quote by Sally Lloyd-Jones
Sin quotes by Bertrand Russell
#122. Intelligence is impeded by any creed, no matter what, and kindness is inhibited by the belief in sin and punishment (this belief, by the way, is the only one that the Soviet Government has taken over from orthodox Christianity) #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Sin quotes by James Denney
#123. The depravity which sin has produced in human nature extends to the whole of it. There is no part of man's nature which is unaffected by it. Man's nature is all of a piece, and what affects it at all affects it altogether #Quote by James Denney
Sin quotes by Remy De Gourmont
#124. Extraordinarily excessive sensuality it may be .. but it all comes down to the same thing in the end, and one means is surely as good as another, since the end obtained is always the same. In any case the exceptional, endlessly repeated, is no different than the banal; and unceasing recapitulation can add nothing, in the end, to the sum of experience. I am weary and hopeless three times the dupe. Why have you trained me in the shame of abominable sins? #Quote by Remy De Gourmont

Sin quotes by Margaret Atwood

Sin quotes by Patrick Curry
#131. Despair is for people who know, beyond any doubt, what the future is going to bring. Nobody is in that position. So despair is not only a kind of sin, theologically, but also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows. In that sense there is always hope. #Quote by Patrick Curry
Sin quotes by Meister Eckhart
#132. Behold how all those people are merchants who shun great sins and would like to be good and do good deeds in God's honour, such as fasts, vigils, prayers, and similar good deeds of all kinds. They do all these things so that our Lord may give them something, or so that God may do something dear to them. All these people are merchants. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Sin quotes by Martin Luther
#133. For God is not gracious and merciful to sinners to the end that they might not keep his Law, nor that they should remain as they were before they received grace and mercy; but he condones and forgives both sin and death for the sake of Christ, who has fulfilled the whole Law in order thereby to make the heart sweet and through the Holy Spirit to kindle and move the heart to begin to love from day to day more and more. #Quote by Martin Luther
Sin quotes by Jetta Carleton
#134. One can repent of a sin and have done with it; but the wages of foolishness is the eternal recalling of it. #Quote by Jetta Carleton
Sin quotes by Thomas Merton
#135. God has left sin in the world in order that there may be forgiveness: not only the secret forgiveness by which He Himself cleanses our souls, but the manifest forgiveness by which we have mercy on one another and so give expression to the fact that He is living, by His mercy, in our own hearts. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Sin quotes by Cornelius Plantinga
#136. For the Christian church ... to ignore, euphemize, or otherwise mute the lethal reality of sin is to cut the nerve of the gospel. For the sober truth is that without full disclosure on sin, the gospel of grace becomes impertinent, unnecessary, and finally uninteresting. #Quote by Cornelius Plantinga
Sin quotes by J.M. Darhower
#137. Ah, sin," Lucifer said. "Like the serpent that tricked Eve into eating the forbidden fruit. She devoured it, knowing she shouldn't."
"And she was punished for it."
"She was," Lucifer agreed. "But if you think for a moment she truly regretted it, you're wrong. That fruit was the most glorious thing she ever tasted - the sweetest, the ripest - and once you experience something so breathtaking, you never forget it. You never regret it. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Sin quotes by Joseph Prince
#138. His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God's forgiveness is not given in installments. #Quote by Joseph Prince
Sin quotes by Anthony Mary Claret
#139. Although the sinner does not believe in Hell, he shall nevertheless go there if he has the misfortune to die in mortal sin. #Quote by Anthony Mary Claret

#143. You're jest one person, an' they's a lot of other folks. You git to your proper place. I knowed people built theirself up with sin till they figgered they was big mean shucks in the sight a the Lord. You ain't big enough or mean enough to worry God much. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Sin quotes by William Taylor
#144. True repentance hates the sin, and not merely the penalty;
and it hates the sin most of all because it has discovered and felt God's love. #Quote by William Taylor
Sin quotes by Matthew Henry
#145. Those whom God pardons must be made to know what their sin deserved, and how miserable they would have been if they had been unpardoned, that God's mercy may be the more magnified. #Quote by Matthew Henry

Sin quotes by Madeline  Martin
#148. He poured a splash of liquid into a second cup. "Come in and warm yerself by the fire."
Ariana walked deeper into the room, toward the glow of the hearth. It's heat enveloped her skin and eased away the chill with such expediency, she almost sighed.
Connor appeared beside her with a metal cup extended. "I canna sleep often myself."
She closed her fingers around the cool surface and glanced at the dark liquid within. A sharp scent hit her nostrils.
"Whisky," Connor said.
He was perfection in the firelight. Shadows etched his jaw while the light softened his face, his lips. The powerful lines of his chest were visible at the neck of his leine, as well as a dark peppering of small curling black hairs.
"Whisky," Ariana said with a forced stare at the cup instead of him. "Of course. I drink this all the time."
"Aye, I knew that about ye. When I first saw ye, I thought, 'Now there's a lass who can handle her whisky.'" Connor winked at her with disarming playfulness. "It'll do ye some good. Take off the chill and settle yer thoughts."
"Why do you assume my thoughts are unsettled?" she asked.
He took a swallow from his cup. "Because sleep comes easily to those without weight on their minds."
Ariana took a careful sip from her own cup, the way she'd seen men at the card tables drink. The liquid burned like sin down her throat and caught in her chest.
She gritted her teeth and swallowed hard several times to keep from sputtering.#Quote by Madeline Martin
Sin quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#149. The scorner has brought, in reference to himself, all religion and moral feeling to an end. He has sat down - is utterly confirmed in impiety, and makes a mock at sin. His conscience is seared, and he is a believer in all unbelief. Now, blessed is the man who sits not down in his SEAT. Adam Clarke. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Sin quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#152. This is what Kaikeyi failed to see: it's not enough to merely love someone. Even if we love them with our entire being, even if we're willing to commit the most heinous sin for their well-being. We must understand and respect the values that drive them. We must want what they want, not what we want for them. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Sin quotes by Tehmina Durrani
#154. To me, my husband was my son's murderer. He was also my daughter's molester. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was Bhai's destroyer, Amma Sain's tormentor, Ma's humbler and the people's exploiter. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us. #Quote by Tehmina Durrani
Sin quotes by Christoph Von Schmid
#155. There is nothing to fear on earth but sin. Prison and death are nothing compared to a guilty conscience. If we are destined to suffer unjustly, if all the world forsake us, God will not. Whatever happens, then, let us put our trust in God. #Quote by Christoph Von Schmid

Sin quotes by Joseph J. Ellis

Sin quotes by Paul Washer
#160. You ask me 'What's the the greatest act of faith?' To me is to look in the mirror of God's word, and see all my faults, all my sin, all my shortcomings and to believe that God loves me exactly as he says he does. #Quote by Paul Washer
Sin quotes by Sarah Morgan

Sin quotes by Preston Sprinkle
#162. This is why your divorce, your addiction, your enslavement to porn, or years of sticking your finger down your throat to match up to some arbitrary standard of beauty can all be woven into the fabric of God's plan of redemption. God doesn't cause sin. He mourns it. He despises it. But through His gracious power, He's able to use it. No one and no sin can outrun God's grace. #Quote by Preston Sprinkle
Sin quotes by Anonymous
#163. They forget that those tiny little hands in the manger, those tiny little hands embraced by Simeon, those hands were made so that nails might be driven through them. Those baby feet, not yet able to walk, they were made to walk up Golgotha to be nailed to the cross. The head of baby Jesus was made so that someday wicked men would press down a crown of thorns into it, drawing his precious blood. This baby's soft tummy would someday be violently ripped open by a spear. So many forget that the manger leads to the cross. Jesus was born to die and when we speak about that, we find rejection by so many. When we speak about why he had to die, when we speak about our sin and the wrath of God, people turn off and tune out. When you see the Messiah in the big picture of our salvation, he is a divisive figure. He divides people into two groups: unbelievers and believers. It was that way in his day and still is today. #Quote by Anonymous
Sin quotes by D. A. Carson
#164. The person who loves his life will lose it: it could not be otherwise, for to love one's life is a fundamental denial of God's sovereignty, of God's rights, and a brazen elevation of self to the apogee of one's perception, and therefore an idolatrous focus on self, which is the heart of all sin #Quote by D. A. Carson
Sin quotes by Ouida
#165. Christianity has ever been the enemy of human love; it has forever cursed and expelled and crucified the one passion which sweetens and smiles on human life, which makes the desert blossom as the rose, and which glorifies the common things and common ways of earth. It made of this, the angel of life, a shape of sin and darkness ... Even in the unions which it reluctantly permitted, it degraded and dwarfed the passion which it could not entirely exclude, and permitted it coarsely to exist for the mere necessity of procreation. #Quote by Ouida
Sin quotes by Andrew       Peterson
#166. O God," you pray, "I'm so small and the universe is so big. What can I possibly say? What can I add to this explosion of glory? My mind is slow and unsteady, my heart is twisted and tired, my hands are smudged with sin. I have nothing - nothing - to offer."
Write about that.
"What do you mean?"
Write about your smallness. Write about your sin, your heart, your inability to say anything worth saying. Watch what happens. #Quote by Andrew Peterson
Sin quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#167. I doubt if it is given to the human being to understand completely the blessed passion and precious death, the mighty resurrection and glorious ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ. I know that I do not understand. But I also know that it has nothing to do with the angry unforgiving God who so upset my young friend. If the basic definition of sin is lack of love (that love without which all men are dead in the sight of God, as Cranmer wrote in one of his collects), then an inability to forgive is lack of love, and if God is unable to forgive us then he is lacking in love, and so he is not God. At least, he is not the God who makes glad my heart. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Sin quotes by Martyn
#168. The Christian must abstain from sin. It is as simple and direct as that. You have no right to say, 'I am weak, I cannot, and temptation is very powerful.' The answer of the New Testament is, Stop doing it! #Quote by Martyn
Sin quotes by M. Scott Peck
#169. For godhood and the hope for mankind, and within each of us is the original sin of laziness, the ever-present force of entropy pushing us back to childhood, to the womb and to the swamps from which we have evolved. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Sin quotes by Henry James
#170. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Sin quotes by Brennan Manning
#171. There is an intimate bond between the sufferings of Christ and the conflict and suffering in each Christian life. The daily dying of the Christian is a prolongation of Christ's own death. Paul writes in Romans 6:3, "Don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?" Baptism is not merely a momentary dying; it inaugurates a lifelong state of death to the world, to the flesh and to sin. Our daily death to selfishness, dishonesty and degraded love is our personal participation in the fellowship of His sufferings. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Sin quotes by Phil Robertson
#172. It was about 5 years after I was baptized before the pull of sin finally stopped. #Quote by Phil Robertson

Sin quotes by Francois Rabelais
#174. Because, according to the sage Solomon, wisdom does not enter into a soul that seeks after evil, and knowledge without conscienceis the ruin of the soul, it behooves you to serve, love and fear God and to put all your thoughts and hope in him, and by faith founded in charity, be joined to him, such that you never be separated from him by sin. #Quote by Francois Rabelais

Sin quotes by Roger Ebert
#176. Movies do not change, but their viewers do. When I saw La Dolce Vita in 1960, I was an adolescent for whom "the sweet life" represented everything I dreamed of: sin, exotic European glamor, the weary romance of the cynical newspaperman. When I saw it again, around 1970, I was living in a version of Marcello's world; Chicago's North Avenue was not the Via Veneto, but at 3 a.m. the denizens were just as colorful, and I was about Marcello's age.

When I saw the movie around 1980, Marcello was the same age, but I was 10 years older, had stopped drinking, and saw him not as a role model but as a victim, condemned to an endless search for happiness that could never be found, not that way. By 1991, when I analyzed the film a frame at a time at the University of Colorado, Marcello seemed younger still, and while I had once admired and then criticized him, now I pitied and loved him. And when I saw the movie right after Mastroianni died, I thought that Fellini and Marcello had taken a moment of discovery and made it immortal. #Quote by Roger Ebert

#179. All certainty

Sin quotes by R.H. Sin
#182. your family, not family

they always seem to return

when all the hard work is finished

they add nothing to the journey

but bumps and bruises

and yet they wait for you

at the finish line with their hands open

expecting to be greeted with kindness even when
they've spent most of their energy being unkind
toward you. taking credit for what you've done alone. taking credit for your joy when all they've ever done

was hurt you #Quote by R.H. Sin

Sin quotes by Becky Chambers
#184. And worst of all, we knew this could happen. We've been impotently worrying about what a solar flare could do to electronic infrastructure since the 1900s. But my generation was so preoccupied with fixing the mess left by the unaddressed-and-fully-known-about environmental disaster of the previous generation that we committed the same sin of criminal procrastination against yours. I ask no forgiveness for this, because we deserve none. #Quote by Becky Chambers
Sin quotes by Ron Chernow
#185. As the bull market goes on, people who take great risks achieve great rewards, seemingly without punishment. It's like crime without punishment or sex without sin. #Quote by Ron Chernow
Sin quotes by Gordon Clark
#186. We are not guilty because we are depraved; we are depraved because we are guilty #Quote by Gordon Clark
Sin quotes by Christopher Hudson
#187. Horrle was nodding gravely, humoring him, probably thinking that out of all these two hundred fun-loving people it was just his luck to have run into a doom merchant. McIntyre had committed the sin of pessimism, of course, forgetting, as a Brit, that out here optimism was more than a state of mind; optimism was a philosophy. #Quote by Christopher Hudson
Sin quotes by Giovanni Guareschi
#188. It is right to hate sin, but not to hate the sinner. #Quote by Giovanni Guareschi
Sin quotes by Michael Reeves
#189. The things he had understood to be sin (murder, adultery, etc.) he now understood to be mere symptoms of the real problem: unbelief. #Quote by Michael Reeves
Sin quotes by Judith Martin
#190. Hypocrisy is not generally a social sin, but a virtue. #Quote by Judith Martin
Sin quotes by Graham Greene
#191. For if this God exists, I thought, and if even you – with your lusts and your adulteries and the timid lies you used to tell – can change like this, we could all be saints by leaping as you leapt, by shutting the eyes and leaping once and for all: if you are a saint, it's not so difficult to be a saint. It's something He can demand of any of us, leap. #Quote by Graham Greene
Sin quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#192. Absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1Jo 1:5). Holiness is the very excellency of the divine nature: the great God is "glorious in holiness" (Exo 15:11). Therefore do we read, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity" (Hab 1:13). As #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Sin quotes by John Piper
#193. When it comes to killing my sin, I don't wait for the miracle, I act the miracle. #Quote by John Piper
Sin quotes by Martin Luther
#194. Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long, does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer! #Quote by Martin Luther
Sin quotes by Joseph Campbell
#195. The sin of inadvertence, not being alert, not quite awake, is the sin of missing the moment of life-live with unremitting alertness. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Sin quotes by Richelle Mead
#196. Most do," she agreed. "Me? My principles are about love and doing it because there's meaning and commitment. A piece of paper doesn't always signal that. If there's any sin involved, it's doing it in a . . . I don't know. Cheap way. With people you don't care about. When it's meaningless. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Sin quotes by William Shakespeare
#197. Lear Act IV, Scene 6
Why dost thou lash that whore? Strip thy own back.
Thou hotly lusts to use her in that kind
For which thou whipp'st her. The usurer hangs the
cozener.
Through tottered rags small vices do appear;
Robes and furr'd gowns hide all. (Plate sin with gold,
And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw does pierce it.
Lear Act IV, Scene 6
Get thee glass eyes;
And, like a scurvy politician, seem
To see the things thou dost not.
Lear Act IV, Scene 6 #Quote by William Shakespeare
Sin quotes by William Shakespeare
#198. ROMEO :
'Tis torture and not mercy. Heaven is here,
Where Juliet lives, and every cat and dog
And little mouse, every unworthy thing,
Live here in heaven and may look on her,
But Romeo may not. More validity,
More honorable state, more courtship lives
In carrion flies than Romeo. They may seize
On the white wonder of dear Juliet's hand
And steal immortal blessing from her lips,
Who even in pure and vestal modesty,
Still blush, as thinking their own kisses sin.
But Romeo may not. He is banishèd.
Flies may do this, but I from this must fly.
They are free men, but I am banishèd.
And sayst thou yet that exile is not death?
Hadst thou no poison mixed, no sharp-ground knife,
No sudden mean of death, though ne'er so mean,
But "banishèd" to kill me? - "Banishèd"!
O Friar, the damnèd use that word in hell.
Howling attends it. How hast thou the heart,
Being a divine, a ghostly confessor,
A sin-absolver, and my friend professed,
To mangle me with that word "banishèd"? #Quote by William Shakespeare
Sin quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#199. It is right that man should love those who have offended him. He will do so when he remembers that all men are his relations, and that it is through ignorance and involuntarily that they sin,
and then we all die so soon. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Sin quotes by Saint Augustine
#200. We do not sin when we adore Christ in the Eucharist; we do sin when we do not adore Christ in the Eucharist. #Quote by Saint Augustine
