Stupid Lyrics

Friday, March 10th, 2006

Stupid lyrics annoy me, so now I’m going to blog about them. The first installment is a real winner. Who Says You Can’t Go Home by Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland is a song about how…well, about people saying you can’t go home. Going home is usually a nice […]

The Quotable Mark

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

- Mark Twain

The Best Valentine’s Gift, Ever

Wednesday, February 1st, 2006

Bittersweets. They are much like the candy hearts we are all so familiar with. They probably even taste like Pepto Bismal, just like the real ones! The messages written on them, however, are far more entertaining.
The first collection of candies is called “Dejected” and includes sayings such as:
I MISS MY EX
TABLE FOR […]

The Quotable Alanis

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

And what I wouldn’t give for a soulmate, someone else to catch this drift.
-All I Really Want
I saved this quote as an unposted post over a year ago and shortly thereafter didn’t identify with it as much because of this guy. Today I was cleaning out some of my old unposted posts and thought […]

The Quotable Dr. Laura

Friday, August 12th, 2005

Guess the Author

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

We’re going to play “Guess the Author.” Won’t you play along?
Quote 1:
“While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or […]

Grace v. Karma, in Bono’s words

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

Josh S outs Bono as a closet Lutheran. I think he might have a point.

The Sickeningly Quotable Kim

Sunday, May 29th, 2005

-Kim Gandy, NOW President
No, Kim, (graphic pictures) […]

The Quotable Martin

Saturday, May 28th, 2005

“I am much afraid that the schools will prove to be the great gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, and engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not […]

The Quotable Sid

Sunday, April 10th, 2005

The Quotable George

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

“The essence of civilization is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak.”
-George W. Bush upon the death of Terri Schiavo

I’m stunned.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

On the murdering of Terri Schiavo:
“She is being starved to death, she is being dehydrated to death. That’s immoral and unnecessary.”
Shock of all shocks - it came from Rev. Jesse Jackson. I didn’t think I’d ever be on the same side of an issue with him.
It’s been 11 days since Terri has had been […]

The Quotable Wells and Joubert

Saturday, February 19th, 2005

H. G. Wells grasped an important truth that many Christians are completely missing - that our theological and moral foundation is found in the first few chapters of Genesis. Wells understood that if those were not taken as truth, then everything that was built on it cannot stand.
If all the animals and […]

The Quotable K.P.

As I was cleaning today I ran across two quotes by one of my favorite authors:
“The heart of the Lord I love beats for the lost.”

“Lord, break my heart again with the things that break your heart.”
-K. P. Yohannan
I think they are both from The Road to Reality, but not sure.
Ugh. Back to cleaning.

The Quotable Devona

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

We need to remind people that they are really sinners. And if you feel bad about yourself, it’s not low self esteem, it’s self honesty. Go to church, and confess. God has already offered the sacrifice.
Devona from Love and Blunder said this in her comment on a post at Here We Stand and I thought […]

The Quotable Brennan

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

The dogged fidelity of Jesus in the face of our indifference to his affection and our rampant ingratitude for his faithfulness - he is always faithful, for he cannot disown his own self (2 Tim. 2:11) - is a mystery of such mind-bending magnitude that the intellect buckles and theology bows in its presence.

Thanks to Cameron “-if you think rape should be legal, then don’t vote” Diaz, America had a record voter turnout on November 2nd. According to Bloomberg.com, 59.6 percent of eligible voters went to the polls.
Thanks, Cam!
As a woman, though, I’m a little concerned about the remaining 40.4 percent of Americans […]
