Master Quotes

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly.

James Allen

The devil, as a master of deceit, does everything he can to keep people from believing in the existence of a hell; but hell is a literal state of existence that will be the plight of all those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ.

TIM LAHAYE

Arturo Perez Reverte

One is neither too scrupulous nor too sincere nor too submissive to nature; but one is more or less master of one\'s model, and, above all, of the means of expression.

Ralph Nader

The pursuit of peace resembles the building of a great cathedral. It is the work of a generation. In concept it requires a master-architect; in execution, the labors of many.

Hubert H. Humphrey

One must be entirely sensitive to the structure of the material that one is handling. One must yield to it in tiny details of execution, perhaps the handling of the surface or grain, and one must master it as a whole.

Barbara Hepworth

Malagasy Proverb

Suffering makes us capable of the full force of the Master of Delight; it makes us capable also to bear the utter play of the Master of Power. Pain is the key that opens the gates of strength; it is the high-road that leads to the city of beatitude.

Epictetus

Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master

Christianity exhorted man to set himself up against Nature, but did so in the name of his spiritual and disinterested attributes. Pragmatism exhorts him to do so in the name of his practical attributes.

Therefore not only does the system alienate humanity, but at the same time alienated humanity supports this system as its own involuntary master plan, as a degenerate image of its own degeneration, as a record of people's own failure as individuals.

Vaclav Havel

Lord, enable us to search our hearts and humble ourselves before Thee. Oh, for a closer walk with God, more faith, more sincerity, more earnestness, and more love. I must study more the Word of God. If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you. The Master said so, and His words are true.

May this plain statement of facts prevail on the friends of the rising generation to interpose for their welfare; that the education of children may no longer be to parent and master a lottery, in which the prizes bear no proportion to the enormous number of blanks.

Joseph Lancaster
