The problem in missions is basically spiritual: we dont see the heathen, we dont hear their cry, we dont open our mouths, and we dont unfold our wallets.

WDB (Missionary to Brazil)

There is a delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm. The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value. Conservation means development as much as it does protection.

Theodore Roosevelt

Wilderness is a continuous stretch of county preserved in its natural state, open to lawful hunting and fishing, big enough to absorb a two weeksí pack trip, and kept devoid of roads, artificial trails, cottages, or other works of man.

Aldo Leopold†

In war as in life, it is often necessary when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might

Winston Churchill

This could open up any part of the town to the uses permitted in the resort/recreational development zone. It would be like opening Pandora's Box.

A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who were pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person were safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.

Woodrow Wilson

An open mind, like an open window, should be screened to keep the bugs out.

Samuel Johnson

America is the land of the second chance - and when the gates of the prison open, the path ahead should lead to a better life.

George W. Bush

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.

Harlan Miller

For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
