Words on Marble - A collection of Quotes - page 2

Man is like a pencil in the hand of God. Therefore, why all the wahala. The killings, greed, hatred, corruption, avarice, suspicions etc. The owner of the universe can switch off now and every system will collapse. 
Man! rethink and digest the fact that we are just on a space trip. Try to appreciate your Creator!!

"Men are so worried that marriage will leave them with “only one woman” for the rest of their lives. That’s simply not true. I fell in love with a 19-year-old rock climber, married a 20-year-old animal lover, started a family with a 24-year-old mother, then built a farm with a 25-year-old homemaker, and today I’m married to a 27-year-old woman of wisdom. If your mind is healthy, you’ll never get tired of “one woman”. You’ll actually become overwhelmed with how many beautiful versions of her you get to marry over the years. Don’t say no to marriage, say yes and keep saying yes until the day you die."
Dale Partridge

Its beauty, to a soul not worthy of it, is unendurable; but to a soul which has conquered Fate it is the key of religion.’’
England’s 20th Century Philosopher, Counsel to the Beatles, Betram Russell, A Free Man’s Worship.
