Quote by Elias Hicks
Therefore, don't let sinners take courage to think they will be favoured like the thief on the cross for we see on the other side, they may be like the hardened one, and reproach death itself.
This quote cautions against sinners gaining false hope from the story of the thief on the cross who was forgiven by Jesus. It warns that not all sinners will receive such favoritism. On the other hand, the quote suggests that some sinners may become hardened and face condemnation instead. Essentially, it advises against assuming that one can easily receive salvation or escape the consequences of their actions, highlighting the unpredictability and varying outcomes of individual lives.
Il nous faut partir d'une conception d'ensemble de l'organisme en tant qu'une entitÃ© fondamentale de la biologie, puis comprendre comment celui-ci se divise en parties qui respectent son ordre intrinsÃ¨que - pour donner un organisme harmonieusement intÃ©grÃ© en dÃ©pit de sa complexitÃ©.
I believe that if we really want human brotherhood to spread and increase until it makes life safe and sane, we must also be certain that there is no one true faith or path by which it may spread. But it is not easy to banish the notion that there can be universal brotherhood just as soon as everybody gives up his faith and accepts ours. That day may never come, for the richness of human diversity cannot be abolished any more than Mars or Jupiter. Difference is the nature of life, it is part of our moral Universe. Without difference, life would become lifeless.
