Belief Quotes

There are four types of persons, the dead, who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist, independent and self-directed, the sick, who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the unusual source of succor, the dull, who know that God is the eternal companion and watchman, but who remember it only off and on when the idea is potent and powerful, and lastly the healthy, who have steady belief in the Lord and who live in His Comforting Creative Presence always.

HAG, n. An elderly lady whom you do not happen to like; sometimes called, also, a hen, or cat. Old witches, sorceresses, etc., were called hags from the belief that their heads were surrounded by a kind of baleful lumination or nimbus --hag being the popular name of that peculiar electrical light sometimes observed in the hair. At one time hag was not a word of reproach: Drayton speaks of a "beautiful hag, all smiles," much as Shakespeare said, "sweet wench." It would not now be proper to call your sweetheart a hag --that compliment is reserved for the use of her grandchildren.
