I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood.
I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood. I had, as I now think vainly, flattered myself that, without very much bloodshed, it might be done.
It's only a myth that "Lightning never strikes the same place twice". Very recently , on June 30, 2014, three high-rising skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by Lightning 22 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (a.k.a. Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Center. Scientifically speaking, there is a good probability that Lightning can strike any location more than once, given enough time, and at the same spot over and over again. It may take as little a few seconds in a single thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but Lightning will eventually strike twice, at least. And it's the truth that is stranger than the fiction.
John Johnson Now this is something the other tour guides won't tell you. In this particular cell-block, Machine Gun Kelly had what we call in the prison system, a bitch. And one night in a jealous rage Kelly took a make-shift knife or shiv, and cut out the bitch's eyes. And as if this wasn't enough retribution for Kelly, the next day he and four other inmates took turns pissing into the bitch's ocular cavities. (short pause) This way to the cafeteria
A call to love all is a matter of life and death i.e. it's a matter of vital importance. Besides, the scripture says, whoever that hates anyone is a murderer/murderess and no murderer/murderess can/will inherit God's kingdom (1st John 3 : 15) Q.E.D.
Anyone who works/lives just to make both ends meet emerges/ends up nothing else but only a money bag. But, anyone who works/lives towards satisfying other people's needs as much/long as he or she can is bound to end up a philantropist/a legend e.g. Mother Theresa, George Soros, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie among others. Now, that infers, you shouldn't work/live just/only to make both ends meet.
Better stop short than fill to the brim. Oversharpen the blade, and the edge will soon blunt. Amass a store of gold and jade, and no one can protect it. Claim wealth and titles, and disaster will follow. Retire when the work is done. This is the way of heaven.
Faith is of paramount importance. As a matter of fact, it takes faith to persevere all through hardtimes, trials and challenges. Moreover, it takes faith to believe that what the future or tomorrow holds in stock is far much greater than whatever the past or yesterday has already offered i.e. it takes faith to acknowledge and believe it is possible that the best or the greatest of good old days or yester years is probable to become the worst or the least of what is yet to come i.e. what is ahead of you. Besides, it takes faith to leap and reap God's promises, healing, health, breakthrough and even salvation of human soul. Yes! it is written in (John 11 : 40) "if only you would believe, you shall see or receive the glory of God". Permit me to tell you that the importance of faith is synonymous with importance of love and money. Oh! yes, love is also of paramount importance. No wonder the scripture says in (1st Corianthians 13 : 2) It says, "whoever that do not love is "NOTHING" .i.e. irrespective of your social status, qualification and affluence. For the fact you don't love all and sundry, you are "WORTHLESS" in God's sight. Come to think of money, the scripture says in (Ecclesiastes 10 : 19) it says, "money answers all things and not at all some things". Obviously that infers, as long as you are still living you can't do without money. Moreover, with regards to faith itself which is the subject matter, the scripture says in (Hebrews 10 : 38) it says, "the just shall live by faith, but if anyone draws back my soul will have no pleasure in him" i.e. the person in question. Likewise, the scripture says in (Hebrews 11 : 6) it says, "without faith it is impossible to please God". Now, all of the above indicates, it takes nothing else to please God almighty except faith. Besides, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies, faith is truly of paramount importance. So, if you've been faithless all these while. Hence forth, reawaken your senses and then become and remain faithful no matter what happens. I mean, admit the importance of faith, imbibe it (faith) as your attitude, profess it convincingly and undoubtedly too. As well, live with/by it on daily basis. For, that's just expected of you.
Giving is a prerequisite to receiving or getting more and more blessings, riches and money from God. Yes! whoever that gives generously and cheerfully most especially to the poor, the needy and the helpless cannot and will never lack throughout his or her lifetime (Proverbs 28 : 27, Acts 20 : 35). Uncommon and renowned givers Andrew Carnegie/George Soros/Henry Ford/Mother Theresa among others.

God is ever indispensable. I mean, God is all-important or rather too important to be disregarded by anyone or anything. Oh! yes, no human can do anything successfully without God or rather no human can survive or live without God (John 15 : 5) QED. Thus, never ever take God almighty for granted.
Henry glanced hastily at the mirror. Yes, he did look rather old. He must have overdone some of the lines on his forehead. He looked something between a youngish centenarian and a nonagenarian who had seen a good deal of trouble.
Henry Kissinger may have wished I had presented him as a combination of Charles DeGaulle and Disraeli, but I didn't. . .out of respect for DeGaulle and Disraeli. I described him as a cowboy because thats how he described himself. If I were a cowboy I would be offended.
I don't believe in coincidence. I mean, all things happen for a reason and for a lesson too. Yes, you just heard me right. Everything that do happen under this planet earth/world whether good or bad, favourable or unfavourable is meant for a reason and for a lesson to be learnt by all humans. Now, that infers, nothing goes for nothing. You've got to accept the above fact. Because, even the scripture has said it long ago before now in ROMANS 8 : 28. It says, all things work together for good of them that love God i.e. even that your so seemed failure, disappointments, setbacks and stuffs like that, will sooner or later turn out for your good/betterment. Oh! Yes, that's just what will be your fate/portion. If only you do believe/accept the above fact. For, until you believe, that's when you will surely see/receive from God. Scripture reference JOHN 11 : 40. Never forget, whatever you undoubtedly believe in, definitely works for you and never against you. That is that.
I feel like the fellow in jail who is watching his scaffold being built. (On construction of reviewing stands for inauguration of his successor John F Kennedy)
I know what love is: Tracy and Hepburn, Bogart and Bacall, Romeo and Juliet, Jackie and John and Marilyn....
I personally don't believe undoubtedly/wholly all that I hear, read and see. And you too shouldn't believe undoubtedly/wholly all that you hear, read and see. Listen up, the only thing you ought to believe undoubtedly/wholly is nothing else but God/the scripture. Because, come what may, God/the scripture has never been broken and it cannot be broken by anyone/anything scripture reference (John 10 : 35). So, feel free to believe God/the scripture undoubtedly/wholly. For, even the grass withers, the flowers fade but God/the scripture stands forevermore, scripture reference (Isaiah 40 : 8). Oh! Yes, God and his words are ever infallible. Besides, God respects his word i.e. (the scripture) above/more than his name. That infers, he (God) can/will go extra mile just to ensure that his words/promises for you will come to pass. Therefore, do believe in God, his promises, words and the scripture undoubtedly/wholly. Because, you can't/won't be disappointed for believing in God, his promises, words and the scripture.
