The mystery of the Christian life is that Christ expects us to flee sin and the devil, but does not expect us to rid ourselves of either on this side of glory.

Our glory is hidden in our pain, if we allow God to bring the gift of himself in our experience of it. -Henri Nouwen

You wake up and the world says, 'Oops, it's too much fun to go to school, you've got to stay home and deal with the snow!' -Adam Savage

All men ought to think of Christ, because of what Christ will yet do to all men. He shall come again one day to this earth with power and glory, and raise the dead from their graves.

Jesus' sinless life was given as a gift to the world – the ultimate gift. Some would receive Him, and others wouldn't.

I guess I just always imagined that I was going to die, like, somehow on top. I was going to, like, go out in some sort of blaze of glory. I never thought about sort of fading into obscurity. And I've worked so hard at having a life, an identity, in obscurity and finding peace with that. -Steve-O

When asked what he was fighting for, General Washington, in writing to General Thomas, said the object was 'neither glory nor extent of territory, but a defense of all that is dear and valuable in life.' He must have been an umpire. That's what umpiring is about. -Doug Harvey

I glory in the distinguishing grace of God and will not, by the grace of God, step one inch from my principles or think of adhering to the present fashionable sort of religion. -Charles Spurgeon

We may thank God that we can feel pain and know sadness, for these are the human sentiments that constitute our glory as well as our grief. -Eugene Kennedy

And whereas nationalism scoffs at the idea of international laws and regulations, patriotism seeks to create such. -Ellen Key

Open your arms to life! Let it strut into your heart in all its messy glory! -Deborah Wiles

Here ends my forever memorable first High Sierra excursion. I have crossed the Range of Light, surely the brightest and best of all the Lord has built. And, rejoicing in its glory, I gladly, gratefully, hopefully pray I may see it again. -John Muir

The one period of glory in NASA was the first nine years when they weren't a bureaucracy yet… and they haven't gotten back to that excitement, that adventurism, and won't. So, I would take most of the NASA budget, and I would turn it into prizes for private sector. -Newt Gingrich

America means far more than a continent bounded by two oceans. It is more than pride of military power, glory in war, or in victory. It means more than vast expanse of farms, of great factories or mines, magnificent cities, or millions of automobiles and radios. -Herbert Hoover

Of all the thankless jobs that economists set for themselves when it comes to educating people about economics, the notion that society is better off if some industries are allowed to wither, their workers lose their jobs, and investors lose their capital – all in the name of the greater glory of globalization – surely ranks near the top. -Edward C. Prescott

People who get comfortable in their spirit miss what they were created for. They were created to magnify the glory of the world. -Cory Booker

No man can see God in this life and live because His glory would annihilate our poor, weak human nature. -Mother Angelica

Football is in a guy's DNA. A primal thing. You should play it so you can talk about the glory days when you get older and drink Bud with the guys from the office. Get it done when you're young, while you have the chance. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

As to my followers, I wish no man to follow me who is not sound at the heart in the cause of his country; and either at the head or in the ranks of these, I will always consider it my glory to be found. -William Wallace

The friendship I had with Elvis began to take shape in 1968 when I was recording in Memphis. I'd record during the day, and Elvis would send one of his guys over to bring me to Graceland at night. Everything you've heard about Graceland during Elvis's glory days is true and then some. -Bill Medley

The soldier who gropes for glory must submit himself to discipline. Subordination gives strength and security to an army. He that will not submit to it when corrected and improved by the experience of ages does not deserve the proud appellation of a soldier. -Sam Houston

India has the sanction of her own past glory and future vision to become strong – in every sense of the term. -Atal Bihari Vajpayee

In modern society, there are fewer and fewer opportunities for men to be men. For masculinity to flourish in all its glory. For daring and risk-taking to live free, or at least relatively free. Fraternities are one of those places. They deserve to be protected. -Milo Yiannopoulos

I want it all: I want the attention and live for the glory nights. -Anthony Joshua

I've learned during my life that if I am in hell, I make my own glory. I've also been in glory, and perhaps I've made my own hell, but I certainly don't take anyone down with me. -Juan Gabriel

I don't fight for my legacy or for the glory or anything like that. The feedback from the fans is nice, don't get me wrong; it's a good feeling having them – you on their side. But I'm motivated by making a good living for my family, and that's what made me get serious about this. -Robbie Lawler

Democracies are slow to anger and hesitant to go to war: Voters don't want to sacrifice their children for the glory of a selfish king. -Michio Kaku

I was freeborn according to the flesh; I am born of a father who was a decurion, but I sold my noble rank – I blush not to state it, nor am I sorry – for the profit of others. In short, I am a slave in Christ to a foreign nation for the unspeakable glory of the eternal life which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Saint Patrick

While it may be tempting to bask fully in the glory of success, remember: When a CEO takes too much credit for the good, they will receive far too much criticism for the bad. -Judy Smith

If you look at the movie 'Belly,' I identify with Sincere the most. I am a gangster. I love my lady to death. I'm not in the game for the wrong reasons. I'm not in the game for the glory. I'm in the game to survive so the people that I love could be straight. I'm a highly intelligent individual. -Kevin Gates

After three years in L.A., I began to dream of my glory days on the boards. But it's very difficult to make a living as a theater actor in New York, which is why I moved out here, and I always had an ambition to work in television. I am a great admirer of the format, and I think it's how we tell long stories. -Luke Macfarlane

I wanted to go to NYU because I thought that was my best path to glory. I figured it was safer to move into the acting world in New York while I was living in a dorm. -Danielle Schneider
