I am coming from an older school, and I feel that you must learn to wait.

Taylor Swift
Today’s comedian has a cross to bear that he built himself. A comedian of the older generation did an act and he told the audience, This is my act. Today’s comic is not doing an act. The audience assumes he’s telling the truth. What is truth today may be a damn lie next week.

The cross where Jesus died became also the cross where His apostle died. The loss, the rejection, the shame, belong both to Christ and to all who in very truth are His. the cross that saves them also slays them, and anything short of this is a pseudo-faith and not true faith at all.
Aiden Wilson Tozer

John F Walvoord
Technical garments for sporting performance will, I believe, simply become more and more fit for purpose and will perform better and better. What is perhaps more interesting is how this technology will cross over into the fashion mainstream. We already see this trend in everything from footwear to outerwear.
Giorgio Armani
Making the sign of the Cross – as we will do during the Blessing – means saying a visible and public “yes” to the One who died and rose for us, to God who in the humility and weakness of his love is the Almighty, stronger than all the power and intelligence of the world.
Pope Benedict XVI
Maybe that’s what is crazy: to want to be free. A lot of people wouldn’t cross the street for it.
George Jonas
God can be found only in suffering and the cross.
Martin Luther
The cross is the price of true love. Lord, give us the strength to accept and carry our crosses!
Pope Francis
They, the holy ones and weakly,
Who the cross of suffering bore,
Folded their pale hands so meekly,
Spake with us on earth no more!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
My dad was a cross-country truck driver.
John Searles
Yet only when we come to understand, in the light of the Cross, the evil we are capable of, and have even been a part of, can we experience true remorse and true repentance.
Pope Francis
When you watch the subtitled version you are probably missing just as many things. There is a layer and a nuance you’re not going to get. Film crosses so many borders these days. Of course it is going to be distorted.
Hayao Miyazaki
The only time I see the truth is when I cross my eyes.
Louise Erdrich
Relegating women to second-class citizenship was abolished when Jesus died on the cross.
Tony Campolo
There are no answers, only cross references.
Norbert Wiener
When to the cross I turn my eyes,And rest on Calvary,O Lamb of God, my sacrifice,I must remember Thee.
James Montgomery
Life is elsewhere. Cross frontiers. Fly away.
Salman Rushdie
We are just about to cross the 400 parts per million threshold.
Christiana Figueres
I like to connect to people in the virtual world, exchanging thoughts and ideas, when in the physical world we might never have the opportunity to cross paths.
Demi Moore
No man understands the Scriptures, unless he be acquainted with the Cross.
Martin Luther
If the cross is a personal act of violence perpetrated by God towards humankind but borne by his Son, then it makes a mockery of Jesus’ own teaching to love your enemies and to refuse to repay evil with evil.
Steve Chalke
Attraversiamo (meaning “Lets cross over” in Italian)
Elizabeth Gilbert
When goods do not cross borders, soldiers will.
Frederic Bastiat
We’re stuck in fear and in not wanting to cross that most important bridge of understanding that we’re more alike or not. We all cry, we all laugh.
Stevie Wonder
Beginning with the early dawn of each day, I will radiate joy to everyone I meet. I will be mental sunshine for all who cross my path. Before the unfailing light of my cheer, darkness will take flight.
Paramahansa Yogananda
Do not be taken in or flattered by your own success or fame. Take not only as to whether or not the old creation, including everything which comes by birth, has gone through the cross.
Watchman Nee
I represent an affluent district, but when I worked to form my county’s first battered-women’s shelter, some nights there were no beds left. Violence against women crosses all economic lines.
Lynn Woolsey
Like all wage slaves, he had two crosses to bear: the people he worked for and the people he worked with
Stephen Vizinczey
You may cross many bridges and you may travel many roads, but you will always carry your own nature with you! Your nature is your shadow!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
The life of man is a struggle on earth. But without a cross, without a struggle, we get nowhere. The victory will be ours if we continue our efforts courageously, even when at times they appear futile.
Boniface Wimmer
Donald Trump has stunned the political world by building an unlikely coalition that crosses all demographic boundaries of age, sex, race, religion and social classes, and all party lines.
Jerry Falwell, Jr.
Dot the i’s, cross the t’s, answer the phones promptly, send out errorless invoices, and in general never forget that the devil is in the details.
Tom Peters
Prostrate, see Thy cross I grasp,And Thy pierced feet I clasp;Gracious Jesus, spurn me not;On me, with compassion fraught,Let Thy glances fall.Thy cross of agony,My Beloved, look on me;Turn me wholly unto Thee;”Be thou whole,” say openly:”I forgive thee all.
Bernard of Clairvaux
If Christ had not gone to the cross and suffered in our stead, the just for the unjust, there would not have been a spark of hope for us. There would have been a mighty gulf between ourselves and God, which no man ever could have passed.
J. C. Ryle
Commitment is a line you must cross. . . . it is the difference between dreaming and doing.
Bernie Fuchs
You can’t learn how to be elegant; you can only learn how to avoid mistakes. The rest is instinct. Elegance is about the way you cross your legs, not the label or the newest clothes from the latest collection.
Carine Roitfeld
Every man is crucified upon the cross of himself.
Whittaker Chambers
If there is one thing for which we stand in this country, it is for complete religious freedom, and it is an emphatic negation of this right to cross-examine a man on his religion before being willing to support him for office.
Theodore Roosevelt
I’m different than most people…when I cross the finish line of a big race, I see that people are ecstatic, but I’m thinking about what I’m going to do tomorrow. It’s as If my Journey is everlasting and there is no finish line
David Goggins
I think it’s important to cross train. Surfing is a good cross training sport for your shoulders. I don’t think I know of any other football player who does it, who can go and paddle out past the sets.
Troy Polamalu
Hereby we may understand that God, of His special grace, maketh the teachers of the gospel subject to the Cross, and to all kinds of afflicitons, for the salvation of themselves and of the people; for otherwise they could by no means beat down this beast which is called vain-glory.
Martin Luther
Robotics are beginning to cross that line from absolutely primitive motion to motion that resembles animal or human behavior.
J. J. Abrams
Patch is the last person you want to antagoonize. He doesn’t hold grudges because the people who cross him tend to disappear quickly.
Becca Fitzpatrick
We asked for a delegation [of the Red Cross] in March 2013 when the first attack happened in Aleppo in the north of Syria ; they delayed it till just a few days before al-Ghouta when they sent those team, and the team itself said in its report that he did everything as he wanted. There was not a single obstacle.
Bashar al-Assad
The wonder of marriage is woven into the wonder of the gospel of the cross of Christ, and the message of the cross is foolishness to the natural man, and so the meaning of marriage is foolishness to the natural man.
John Piper
We are not bearing our crosses every time we have a headache; an aspirin tablet will take care of that. What is meant is the trouble we would not have if we were not Christians.
Vance Havner
We are soldiers of the cross, we’ve been found to reach the lost.
Randy Travis
Everywhere we look, ideology slouches along the freeways and autoroutes, sometimes carrying a cross, sometimes a sickle, sometimes a crescent, but always busy doing somebody in somewhere, somehow.
Robert Todd Carroll
In the manger God loves you; through the cross God saves you. But has he taken you to his home? Not yet.
Max Lucado
Before we can begin to see the cross as something done FOR us, leading us to faith and worship, we have to see it as something done BY us, leading us to repentance. Only the man or woman who is prepared to own his share in the guilt of the cross may claim his share in its grace.
C. J. Mahaney
Sometimes I feel… that my cross is heavy beyond endurance… My heart seems worn out and bruised beyond repair, and in my deep loneliness I often wish to be gone, but God knows best, and I want to do every ounce of work He wants me to do.
Charles Studd
I am a cross between Carl Perkins and Led Zeppelin.
Ronnie Hawkins
The Savior’s suffering in Gethsemane and His agony on the cross redeem us from sin by satisfying the demands that justice has upon us. He extends mercy and pardons those who repent. The Atonement also satisfies the debt justice owes to us by healing and compensating us for any suffering we innocently endure.
D. Todd Christofferson
They change their sky, not their mind, who cross the sea. A busy idleness possesses us: we seek a happy life, with ships and carriages: the object of our search is present with us.
He who crosses the ocean twice without washing is a dirty double crosser.
At these crossover points, there are a lot of beings, nonphysical beings that cross over back and forth constantly.
Frederick Lenz
Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.
Donald Trump
I think that when you don’t see the boundaries, you cross them without even knowing they exist in the first place.
Marion Cotillard
Look, therefore, which way we will, whether at the direct Scriptural statements of death as the penalty of sin, or at the agony of the cross as a means of rescue, or at the joy of the angels of God over a rescue; we see from either that it must be a work of infinite and eternal consequence–the work of redemption.
Herrick Johnson
Jesus did not die for pastors to have a well paid job. Neither was He raised on the cross just to raise our standard of living. He died to seek and to save those who are lost.
Reinhard Bonnke
When you’re holding people’s attention, I feel you must give them high-quality ingredients. They deserve nothing but your best. And if they need information, get it, cross-check it, and try to be right. Do not waste their time; do not enjoy the ego trip of being onstage.
Henry Rollins
Holiness is not for wimps and the cross is not negotiable, sweetheart, it’s a requirement.
Mother Angelica
My family has always gone to church. I like to think that faith has been a part of my life since I was a lot younger. It’s definitely a part of my athletic career. I always wear a cross on my goggles during contests when I’m doing something gnarly. It’s a reminder that I’ve got someone else helping me out.
Nick Goepper
Lessons learned are like bridges burned you only need to cross them but once. Is the knowledge gained worth the price of the pain, are the spoils worth the cost of the hunt?
Dan Fogelberg
You get to a point where you have to start planning, when you cross that line where you have enough value to get someone’s movie made if you attach yourself to it, you have to be very thoughtful and have to plan. When you’re starting out, you’re willing to do anything.
Chris Pratt
I live in the country, so I get a fair amount of exercise. We heat our house with wood, so I split wood. We also live on a steep hill, and I have to rake and put in cross-stitches to keep the road from washing out when there’s a big rain.
Pete Seeger
Vishous’s chest expanded. . . and his diamond stare slowly swung to Butch. There was a heartbeat of intensity. Then V reached out and repositioned the cross so it once again hung over Butch’s heart. “You did well, cop. Congratulations, true?
J.R. Ward
Disneyland is such a big thing to Californians, I discovered that when you cross the border you have to raise your right hand and take an oath that you believe in Walt Disney.
Jack Paar
Suffering is not blessed because it is suffering but because it is [Christ’s]. Suffering is not the context that explains the cross; the cross is the context that explains suffering.
Peter Kreeft
I once donated a pint of my finest red corpuscles to the great American Red Cross and the doctor opined my blood was very helpful; contained so much alcohol they could use it to sterilize their instruments.
W. C. Fields
If you meet a cross-eyed person
you must plunge into the grass,
alongside the chilly ants,
fish through the green fingernails
and come up with the four-leaf clover.
Anne Sexton
Christmas, so long looming over everyone’s head, finally surged up, buried everyone alive and ebbed away, leaving its victims distinctly cross.
Angela Thirkell
When our deepest desire is not the things of God, or a favor from God, but God Himself, we cross a threshold.
Max Lucado
Nothing teaches great writing like the very best books do. Yet, good teachers often help students cross that bridge, and I have to say that I had a few extraordinary English teachers in high school whom I still credit for their guidance.
Julia Glass
We affect one another quite enough merely by existing. Whenever the stars cross, or is it comets? fragments pass briefly from one orbit to another. On rare occasions there is total collision, but most often the two simply continue without incident, neither losing more than a particle to the other, in passing.
Gore Vidal
Nothin’ wrong with havin’ a cat in the house. They can see what most people can’t, like the folks in the Otherworld when they cross back over – the good ones and the bad. And they get rid a mice.
Kami Garcia
I’m sometimes afraid I’ll cross a line and it’ll be difficult to come back, say, to dinner.
Jamaica Kincaid
A cross between a foreign legion boot-camp and a secret-society initiation ritual, the ordeals were grounded in pain. One thing was obvious: the agenda, which was dedicated to grave discomfort, had been drawn up by a passionate sadist.
Tahir Shah
I could trust a fact and always cross-question an assertion.
Michael Faraday
Christians have learned that when there seems to be no other evidence of God’s love, they cannot escape the cross.
D. A. Carson
cross that person off your invitation list.
John Eliot
Jesus on the Cross feels the whole weight of the evil, and with the force of God’s love he conquers it, he defeats it with his resurrection.
Pope Francis
Bulk collection means all of your communications are being secretly intercepted. They are being stolen as they cross India, and they’re being stored in these silos so that they can be rifled through at the convenience of secret agents, basically.
Edward Snowden
Without the resurrection, the cross is meaningless.
Billy Graham
Anyplace of work where you have a cross section of work, you have mini-ecosystem. A little representation of what the planet is. You have the Alpha Dog. You have the young ones, the old ones. The pissed off one. The quiet one.
Ryan Reynolds
I was walking across King’s Cross station when a drunken Irishman came stumbling up and flung his arms around me. He wanted to thank me for the peace process in Northern Ireland.
Ann Widdecombe
You sure you want to cross me?” In that moment she’s her father’s daughter.
Holly Black
The only way to heal is to look at the Cross, to look at God Who takes upon Himself our sins: my sin is there.
Pope Francis
I’m known as a person who, like, steps out of the comfort zone. Who kind of breaks the rules and crosses the line in the sense of making YouTube videos.
Kian Lawley
A Christian is one who points at Christ and says, ‘I can’t prove a thing, but there’s something about his eyes and his voice. There’s something about the way he carries his head, his hands, the way he carries his cross-the way he carries me.’
Frederick Buechner
Christian adults need to think about talking to our own children as a form of cross-cultural missions. Cultural change happens so quickly that teens are exposed to ideas and worldviews very different from those of previous generations.
Nancy Pearcey
I think you can talk about anything if the context is correctly arranged. If you set up the context and you bring the audience along carefully enough with you, you can get them to cross the line with you. What I try to do is talk about things that bother me, and I hope that in doing so I bother other people.
George Carlin
Your thoughts and actions not only influence your mood, but the moods of all you cross paths with. Thinking lovingly. Do lovingly. Be a messenger for love.
Karen Salmansohn
I know you look both ways before you cross the street, but I want you to look both ways a second time, because I told you to.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I wear my dad’s cross. It’s very important to me. I hang it in my locker before each game.
Hope Solo
And, of course, millions of us cross the border to work in US homes and gardens and factories and carpentry shops and restaurants, and if you go to a restaurant pretty much anywhere in the United States, the chances are that the dishes will be washed by a Mexican.
Alma Guillermoprieto
It was on the cross of Calvary that God, in Christ, dealt fully and finally with self, the nature from which all our sins flow.
Miles J. Stanford
The heaviest of my crosses was that I could do nothing to lighten the cross my mother was suffering.
Margaret Mary Alacoque
Weak, feeble and foolish as it may seem to people, the simple story of the Cross is enough for all mankind in every part of the globe.
J. C. Ryle
I think it is important to be a friend to your kids. But it is also equally important to set boundaries. My mother was a strong influence and so was my dad. My mom was my friend whom I couldn’t cross.
Karisma Kapoor
When we look at thing, we must examine its essence and treat its appearance merely as an usher at the threshold, we must, once we cross the threshold, grasp the essence of the thing.
Mao Zedong
We cross infinity with every step; we meet eternity in every second.
Rabindranath Tagore
Children’s literature must build a bridge between the colorful dream world full of fantasy and illusion, and a tougher real world full of twists and turns. The child armed with the torch of knowledge, awareness and guidance must cross this bridge and set foot to the intense harshness of the bigger world.
Samad Behrangi
It was the hour in which objects lose the consistency of shadow that accompanies them during the night and gradually reacquire colors, but seem to cross meanwhile an uncertain limbo, faintly touched, just breathed on by light; the hour in which one is least certain of the world’s existence.
Italo Calvino
She sticks her tongue out at me and crosses her eyes. Not sure why that made me want to do her in the backseat, but to each his own, I guess.
J.A. Redmerski
Readers no longer need novelists to tell us what it’s like to cross the world on a ship or fight a war. In the twenty-first century, we get that information in other ways. The thing that’s still a mystery to us is the human heart. What we want is to understand people, what they’re doing, and why they’re doing it.
Walter Mosley
We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.
Tom Stoppard
Whatever you love most, you fear you might lose, you know it can change. Why do you look from left to right when you cross the street? Because you don’t want to get run over. But, you still cross the street.
Audrey Hepburn
You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don’t let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
Laurence J. Peter
You can hide beneath the covers and study your pain, make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain. Waste your summer praying in vain, for a savior to rise from these streets.
Bruce Springsteen
Did they look like anyone we know? For example… a cross between Pippi Longstocking and the Wicked Witch of the West would obviously give us Marcie Millar
Becca Fitzpatrick
Had it been published by a voice from heaven, that twelve poor men, taken out of boats and creeks, without any help of learning, should conquer the world to the cross, it might have been thought an illusion against all reason of men; yet we know it was undertaken and accomplished by them.
Stephen Charnock
I was not looking for a sitcom, because the philosophy at that point was that you had to make a choice: Were you going to do movies or TV? You couldn’t cross over.
Shelley Long
Through the death of Christ on the cross making atonement for sin, we get a perfect standing before God. That is justification, and it puts us, in God’s sight, back in Eden before sin entered. God looks upon us and treats us as if we had never sinned.
A. C. Dixon
Our hope is not in the man we put in the White House but in the Man we put on the Cross.
Rick Warren
It is a dangerous day when we can take the cross out of the church more easily than the flag. No wonder it is hard for seekers to find God nowadays.
Shane Claiborne
If the spaces open up in the attack, then of course I’m willing to take it because I love to get involved; I love to get crosses in. I love to do combinations and just bring a different aspect to our game.
Ali Krieger
Christian worship must contain both the cross and the crown. Sing of majesty, and sing of mercy.
Matt Redman
Christians, hasten to help your brothers in the East, for they are being attacked. Arm for the rescue of Jerusalem under your captain Christ. Wear his cross as your badge. If you are killed your sins will be pardoned.
Pope Urban II
The days of the Cross are counted. We must deliver the German nation from the pernicious influence of Christianity.
Erich Ludendorff
I’m thinking of a presidential bid; currently indexing and cross-referencing everyone I’ve tweeted my junk to. 8x10s available.
Christopher Titus
I worked on a case in Pittsburgh that you would call a demonic haunting. Blood would materialize on the walls, crosses were bending, we’d hear sounds. Just crazy things.
Ryan Buell
I think once you sort of cross over and you realize what books can be – and if they mean something to you – there’s just no stopping you.
Molly Ringwald
Everyone plays the ball over the top and, at the moment, we only concede goals from crosses or balls over the top. I feel we will adapt to that.
Arsene Wenger
We live our lives by the water and if you don’t know how to swim in Australia, it’s like not knowing how to cross a road. It’s an incredible survival thing that you really must learn when you’re a child.
Eric Bana
Christ did not come to straighten out the natural, but to “CROSS” it out.
L. E. Maxwell
Write down what you feel guilty about. Now, with the biggest, reddest marker you can find, cross it out-delete it.
Sue Thoele
Lena was an introvert. She knew she had trouble connecting with people. She always felt like her looks were fake bait, seeming to offer a bridge to people, which she couldn’t easily cross.
Ann Brashares
To this day God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my willful path violently and recklessly, all things which upset my subjective views, plans and intentions and change the course of my life for better or worse.
Carl Jung
If both Church and fairy-tale belong to humanity, they may occasionally cross circles, without injury to either.
George MacDonald
I prefer to scare myself in the ordinary ways, Daddy. Like letting my children cross the country for college. Why bungee jump when you can put a kindergartener on a school bus? Now, that’s real terror.
Kristin Hannah
The cross shows us the seriousness of our sin-but it also shows us the immeasurable love of God.
Billy Graham
Nobody’s life is a bed of roses. We all have crosses to bear, and we all just do our best. I would never claim to have the worst situation. There are many widows, and many people dying of AIDS, many people killed in Lebanon, people starving all over the planet. So we have to count our lucky stars.
Yoko Ono
The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire.
Malcolm Gladwell
When it comes to owning the seed for collecting royalties, the GMO companies say, ‘it’s mine.’ But when it comes to contamination, cross-pollination, health problems, the response is we’re not liable.
Vandana Shiva
The world is a Bridge, pass over it, but build no houses upon it. He who hopes for a day, may hope for eternity; but the World endures but an hour. Spend it in prayer for the rest is unseen.
What people don’t realize is how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the cross.
Flannery O’Connor
For f*ck’s sake, get off the cross. Someone else needs the wood” ~Zsadist
J.R. Ward
Take the wold, but give me Jesus;
In His cross my trust shall be,
Till, with clearer, brighter vision
Face to face my Lord I see.
Fanny Crosby
St John of the Cross told us that if a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark. I interpret that as a direction for us to trust in the guidance we receive from our invisible self.
Wayne Dyer
It’s very important that there should be cross-fertilisation between government and academia. Both parties can benefit from having a better understanding of how the other works.
Nicholas Stern
Meetings … are rather like cocktail parties. You don’t want to go, but you’re cross not to be asked.
Jilly Cooper
Like no other science, astrophysics cross-pollinate s the expertise of chemists, biologists, geologists and physicists, all to discover the past, present, and future of the cosmos-and our humble place within it.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
In what bold relief stand out the lives of all walkers of the snow! The snow is a great tell-tale, and blabs as effectually as it obliterates. I go into the woods, and know all that has happened. I cross the fields, and if only a mouse has visited his neighbor, the fact is chronicled.
John Burroughs
Other men’s crosses are not my crosses.
John Donne
LaGuardia is jammed into just 680 urban acres; taxiways are tight; runways intersect; you can’t launch a departure until the arrival on the other runway crosses the threshold or else the airplanes will … collide.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
I meditate and do yoga. I sit cross-legged and try not to levitate too much.
Jeremy Brett
There is a French expression that says: to be exposed to an accident, to cross a street without looking at the cars means exposing oneself to be run over. This is more than a play with words, it’s fundamental.
Paul Virilio
When you cross the line, it is such a wonderful feeling it’s hard to describe.
Kelly Holmes
So when you say who does Christ die for? He died for the church, okay. I don’t think God’s death on the cross through Christ was a failure, if you are saying that. I do not believe that anybody he intended to die for is failing in that area.
Rick Warren
As an investment banker, I’m in the cross-flow of information and the changes that are taking place in capital markets.
Euvin Naidoo
I cannot stand people who disagree with me on the issue of Roe v. Wade… which I believe is about the proper way to cross a lake.
Stephen Colbert
There is a deeper pleasure in following truth to the scaffold or the cross, than in joining the multitudinous retinue, and mingling our shouts with theirs, when victorious error celebrates its triumphs.
Horace Mann
I know that the Bible has been a central influence in [Elie Wiesel and Frank Moore Cross] lives – but in a very different way. In truth, you inhabit very different Biblical worlds.
Hershel Shanks
How to run an ultramarathon ? Puff out your chest, put one foot in front of the other, and don’t stop till you cross the finish line.
Dean Karnazes
Sometimes you don’t know if you’re Caesar about to cross the Rubicon or Captain Queeg cutting your own tow line.
Anthony Kennedy
It’s the cross-training that’s key. It doesn’t let your body adapt to one stimulus too much and it keeps your workouts exciting.
Brett Hoebel
For 35 years, Frank Cross held one of the most prestigious chairs in academia: the Hancock Professor of Hebrew and Other Oriental Languages at Harvard University. I believe that’s the third oldest university chair in the country.
Hershel Shanks
Whenever there is a cross to be carried by any of Christ’s followers, He always bears the heavy end on His own shoulders.
Charles Spurgeon
[…]when two people have become present to each other, the waiting of one must be able to cross the narrow line between the living or dying of the other.
Henri Nouwen
Following Emporer Nero’s command, “Let the Christians be exterminated!:” . . . they [the Christians] were made the subjects of sport; they were covered with the hides of wild beasts and worried to death by dogs, or nailed to crosses or set fire to, and when the day waned, burned to serve for the evening lights.
She said she thought it [ letter “C”] meant alphabetical order. But nobody bothered to ask did she ever see an “A,” a “B,” a “D,” or an “E.” If I were cross-examining her I darn well would have asked her that question.
Rudy Giuliani
In what a delightful communion with God does that man live who habitually seeketh love! With the same mantle thrown over him from the cross – with the same act of amnesty, by which we hope to be saved – injuries the most provoked, and transgressions the most aggravated, are covered in eternal forgetfulness.
Elias Lyman Magoon
When you meet with crosses and calamities, say, “Now I see God’s justice and God’s truth; now I see the hatefulness and hurtfulness of sin; and therefore now I will mourn, not because I am crossed, but because I have deserved this cross, and a worse too.”
William Whately
Whether it is a call to action for blood drives, disaster relief, or just community outreach, the American Red Cross does an extraordinary job at not only meeting the immediate needs of a community, but also the preparation and planning for long-term support.
Darius Rucker
You learn to laugh at yourself and you also lean on comedy as a crutch to kind of take the edge off because comedians often are self-deprecating and they cross lines that they shouldn’t. Stuff like that brings a smile to my face every once in a while when needed.
John Cena
May Mary, who in the freedom of her ‘Fiat’ and her presence at the foot of the cross, offered to the world, Jesus, the Liberator, help us to find him in the Sacrament of the altar
Pope John Paul II
I think about my mother every day. But usually the thoughts are fleeting – she crosses my mind like a spring cardinal that flies past the edge of your eye: startling, luminous, lovely… gone.
Meghan O’Rourke
When the rose and the cross are united the alchemical marriage is complete and the drama ends. Then we wake from history and enter eternity.
Robert Anton Wilson
I am black,” she said, and a shudder rippled through me. “I am foul with a thousand years of demon curses. Don’t cross me or I will bring you and your house down. Rachel is the only clean thing I have, and you won’t sully her to further your high ideas.
Kim Harrison
We have the power of the Holy Cross, our holy symbol, the divine grace of Christ, only as long as we have the holy marking of the Holy Baptism, meaning we have denied the devil and sided with Christ, and received the Holy Marking, the seal of the Gift of the Holy Spirit.
Elder Paisios of Mount Athos
The person you are (in total, at that moment in time) is what creates the story you’re writing. It’s infused in every piece of punctuation, in the plot, in the most minor character who crosses the page. It’s all your voice.
Victor LaValle
Never cross a woman with a star on a stick, young lady. They’ve got a mean streak.
Terry Pratchett
No one, however weak, is denied a share in the victory of the cross. No one is beyond the help of the prayer of Christ.
Pope Leo I
It’s funny… you can make fun of AIDS or Haiti, but if you make fun of some starlet in Hollywood’s looks? That’s like the one thing… the line you are not to cross.
Daniel Tosh
I believe in books. I believe more in cross-media – how characters are adapting across mediums.
Bing Gordon
But a somewhat more liberal and sympathetic examination of mankind will convince us that the cross is even older than the gibbet, that voluntary suffering was before and independent of compulsory; and in short that in most important matters a man has always been free to ruin himself if he chose.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The Blood deals with what we have done, whereas the Cross deals with what we are. The Blood disposes of our sins, while the Cross strikes at the root of our capacity for sin.
Watchman Nee
Jesus was a cross-dresser.
George Carlin
Before I came to New York, I only had a few pictures of the city in my mind. And you know ‘That Girl?’ Marlo Thomas jumping with her hat? I always loved that, and I wondered what that double street she crosses is. And it’s Park Avenue! And that’s what I can see out my window.
Kate Spade
So, we wait until tomorrow night, and when you say the word, I cross over and haul you both out. Right? That’s it?” “With any luck, yes.” Luck? We were depending on luck? Nash is so screwed.
Rachel Vincent
To believe Christ’s cross to be a friend, as he himself is a friend, is also a special act of faith
Samuel Rutherford
As poet-philosopher Rabindranath Tagore reminds us, “We cannot cross the sea merely by staring at the water.” Simplicity has power. And living on purpose comes to this: Just do it. How much simpler can we get?
Dan Millman
The faith of the Church is this: That one and identical is the Word of God and the Son of Mary Who suffered on the Cross, Who is present in the Eucharist, and Who rules in Heaven
Pope Pius XII
I’ve been doing a lot of different cross-training and kickboxing and Capoeira and kite surfing, and I’ve just really been back to what I consider my original athletic self.
Alanis Morissette
It is my great hope that our paths, however long and winding, will cross again.
Jonathan Safran Foer
A book collection is a cross between a Rorschach test and This Is Y our Life. It marks your life clearly like rings on a tree.
Margo Kaufman
Women do fool around. But the reason they don’t get caught is that when a woman mess with a man he lives cross town, out of town. Fellas we mess with next door neighbor, co-worker, wondering why she found out.
Bruce Bruce
It’s really hard for actors to cross over and get any respect as a singer, and if I could just keep it separate and not use my music in movies, it’s cool.
Taryn Manning
All of us must cross the line between ignorance and insight many times before we truly understand.
David Hawkins
Without the cross, there’s only condemnation. If Jesus wasn’t executed, there’s no celebration.
I’ve always loved to prove people wrong. I want to be able to cross color lines, because in music, there really is no barrier.
We have ways to protect the public when free speech crosses over in hate speech.
Luciana Berger
I’ll go through all of [12 steps for people who say are traumatized by the election], but a sample: Volunteer to fight Islamaphobia. Join the ACLU. Donate to Planned Parenthood. Take down sexism and misogyny. Sort of all the stations of the cross of liberalism. Sort of all the stations of the cross of liberalism.
Tucker Carlson
What the world calls virtue is a name and a dream without Christ. The foundation of all human excellence must be laid deep in the blood of the Redeemer’s cross, and in the power of His resurrection.
Frederick William Robertson
We like to think of Uber as the cross between lifestyle and logistics, where lifestyle is what you want and logistics is how you get it there.
Travis Kalanick
Cross-generational sex is the phenomenon in which young girls are given material goods in exchange for sex. All girls are vulnerable to it, particularly orphans.
Ashley Judd
Our sin reached its full horror and found its most awful expression in the cross.
Colin S. Smith
My best male friend is my best friend until he crosses me. We’re all protective of the self.
Neil LaBute
Cross-examination is beyond any doubt the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. … Cross-examination, not trial by jury, is the great and permanent contribution of the Anglo-American system of law to improved methods of trial-procedure.
John Henry Wigmore
I bicycle 12,000-foot mountain passes, run, cross train, skate-ski, hike and mountain bike.
Carre Otis
In cross examination, as in fishing, nothing is more ungainly than a fisherman pulled into the water by his catch.
Louis Nizer
Data-driven statistics has the danger of isolating statistics from the rest of the scientific and mathematical communities by not allowing valuable cross-pollination of ideas from other fields.
Lawrence Shepp
When little old ladies recognize a guy who was Mr. Olympia, that’s saying something. That means I’ve been able to cross lines as far as marketability is concerned.
Lee Haney
Every guitarist I would cross paths with would tell me that I should have a flashy guitar, whatever the latest fashion model was, and I used to say, ‘Why? Mine works, doesn’t it? It’s a piece of wood and six strings, and it works.’
Angus Young
Look to the cross, think of the cross, meditate on the cross, and then go and set your affections on the world if you can.
J. C. Ryle
Because the Lord Jesus died on the Cross, I have received forgiveness of sins; because the Lord Jesus rose from the dead, I have received new life; because the Lord Jesus has been exalted to the right hand of the Father, I have received the outpoured Spirit. All is because of Him; nothing is because of me.
Watchman Nee
O Priest! Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: He saved others, himself he cannot save!
Norbert of Xanten
Sometimes I definitely shut people out. I can be that sort of girlfriend who crosses her arms, shakes her head and says, “Nope, I’m not telling you what’s wrong. I’m fine.”
Emma Stone
Don’t get me wrong: there are aspects of buying music online that I love. Instantly being able to hear a song the moment it crosses your mind? Where’s the downside? However, I do feel for those too young to remember the thrill of going record shopping.
John Niven
Presumptuous for me to say, but at least – at a minimum – I’ve been able to influence the direction of the Democratic Party on foreign policy. And I’ve been relatively – presumptuous to say – relatively successful legislatively in the Senate, being able to win a lot of Republican friends, and being able to cross the aisle.
Joe Biden
Any discussion of how pain and suffering fit into God’s scheme ultimately leads back to the cross.
Philip Yancey
I just don’t want to be known as the actress who can sing. I want to be known as the singer who can act, too. It’s great cross-promotion.
Mandy Moore
We do not attach any intrinsic value to the Cross; this would be sinful and idolatrous. Our veneration is referred to Him who died upon it.
James Gibbons
The very presence of an angel is communication. Even when an angel crosses your path in silence, God has said to us, I am here. I am present in your life.
Tobais Palmer
Suppose you had a cross burning in a play or a movie… Would that be intimidating?
Sandra Day O’Connor
One of the best things about reading comic books, when you’re a kid or an adult, is watching the characters cross-over. What happens in one book affects the other, and these shows are so tightly knit that it feels like one giant show.
Andrew Kreisberg
All crosses are easier to carry when we keep moving.
Neal A. Maxwell
A moment comes in war when the last line must be crossed. The line that separates what you hold dear from what total war demands. If he couldn’t cross that line, the battle was over, and he was lost. His heart, the war. Her face, the battlefield. With a cry only he could hear, the hunter turned. And ran.
Rick Yancey
Religious people today are courts and juries. When it comes down to it, Jesus died on the cross so that we could learn to love others like we love ourselves, not judge them or persecute them.
Tammy Faye Bakker
A prison is a cross section of society in which every human strain is clearly revealed.
Eugene V. Debs
While helping hundreds of thousands of refugees, Red Cross volunteers undoubtedly heard stories of Nazi brutality and rumors of mass gassings and they noted those rumors and kept an eye out for any evidence of them, but they saw nothing to indicate that the rumors were true.
David Duke
I’m just a regular guy, but if you cross me it will get physical.
Ryan Tedder
I am not fit to marry. I am often cross, and I like my own way, and I have a distaste for men.
Anthony Trollope
You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.
William Jennings Bryan
I think one of the serious breakdowns in modern evangelism is this: it has offered too much for too little. What we do mostly is offer forgiveness. We need cleansing! There is no true conversion until a man takes up his cross.
Leonard Ravenhill
At first, one believes in love. Then one crosses a border, a border of time. Then that belief, too, is lost.
Marek Hlasko
Catholics have more extreme sex lives because they’re taught that pleasure is bad for you. Who thinks it’s normal to kneel down to a naked man who’s nailed to a cross? It’s like a bad leather bar.
John Waters
Died of wounds inflicted in error by his own troops at the battle of Chancellorsville during the US Civil War. Let us cross over the river and sit in the shade of the trees.
Stonewall Jackson
The freedom of cross country is so primitive. It’s woman vs. nature.
Lynn Jennings
It finally happened, he thought as he burrowed under his shirt and took hold of his heavy cross. All his life he’d wondered why he’d never fallen in love, and now he knew: He’d been waiting for this moment, this woman, this time. The female is mine, he thought. – Manny
J.R. Ward
I expected Dracula to come jumping out any second. If he did I’d have held up a cross, cause he’s allergic to bullshit.
Richard Pryor
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.
George Bennard
Im happy to volunteer for the American Red Cross Celebrity Cabinet. The Red Cross is an organization that responds to those in need and it is an honor to help them with the lifesaving role they play everyday in communities nationwide.
Peyton Manning
I sit cross-legged on the rock The valleys and streams are cold and damp Sitting quietly is beautiful The cliffs are lost in mist and fog I rest happily in this place At dusk the tree shadows are low I look into my mind A white lotus emerges from the dark mud
More and more, cultural groups are cross-pollinating, and we’re getting much more interesting art as a result.
Damon Albarn
Feast of the Holy Cross Does not every man feel, that there is corruption enough within him to drive him to the commission of the greatest enormities, and eternally to destroy his soul?
Charles Simeon
If I’m in theatre, cinema doesn’t even cross my mind. Similarly when I’m making a film, theatre doesn’t cross my mind.
John Hurt
We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of citizens. I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen while anybody who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth.
Mark Levin
There is no way of salvation except through the cross of Christ.
Billy Graham
Following Jesus means taking up one’s own cross to accompany him on his path, an uncomfortable path that is not one of success or earthly glory, but which leads to true freedom, the freedom from selfishness and sin.
Pope Francis
The blood that poured from Christ’s wounds bought your salvation. If you want to truly value what He did, think of Him hanging on that cross just for you. With that thought in your mind, consider how you should live. He gave Himself freely for you; are you giving yourself fully to Him?
Charles Stanley
Jesus came to give us life. We don’t have to hang on a cross like he did. For him, it was a sacrifice. For us, it is a gift.
Dillon Burroughs
I don’t think people understand how much hard work innovation is. That it’s not just getting an idea. You really have to cross your T’s and dot your I’s long before you ever start on the project. I don’t think people perceive that about me. I work hard.
Nolan Bushnell
Most of my recent plays were written in the railway train between Hatfield and Kings Cross. I write anywhere, on the top of omnibuses or wherever I may be; it is all the same to me.
George Bernard Shaw
It has not been an easy cross to bear. It has caused considerable confusion. My husband constantly complained about the awkwardness of being married to a woman whom he called Sister.
Sister Parish
Not she with trait’rous kiss her Saviour stung, Not she denied him with unholy tongue; She, while apostles shrank, could danger brave, Last at his cross and earliest at his grave.
Eaton Stannard Barrett
You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.
David Lloyd George
Poverty is the frontier we have to be able to cross.
Ricardo Lagos
Christ did not suffer and die to offer cheap grace. Jesus did not go willingly to the cross so we could have an easy life or offer a faith built on easy-believism. As someone once said, ‘Salvation is free, but not cheap.’ It cost Jesus His life.
Billy Graham
The emotional stakes a memoirist bets with could not be higher, and it’s physically enervating. I nap on a daily basis like a cross-country trucker.
Mary Karr
Amen” Lula said and she made the sign of the cross. “I thought you were Baptist.” “Yeah, but we don’t got any hand signals for an occasion like this.
Janet Evanovich
Christ’s love and friendship are no illusion. On the Cross Jesus showed how real they are.
Pope Francis
Few are those among men who have crossed over to the other shore, while the rest of mankind runs along the bank. However those who follow the principles of the well-taught Truth will cross over to the other shore, out of the dominion of Death, hard though it is to escape.
Gautama Buddha
How sweet it is to die if one has lived on the Cross!
John Vianney
Recognize in this bread what hung on the cross, and in this chalice what flowed from His side… whatever was in many and varied ways announced beforehand in the sacrifices of the Old Testament pertains to this one sacrifice which is revealed in the New Testament.
Saint Augustine
One bright and thankful look at the cross is worth a thousand morbid, self-condemning reflections.
A. B. Simpson
Where are the marks of the cross in your life? Are there any points of identification with your Lord? Alas, too many Christians wear medals but carry no scars.
Vance Havner
We need not borrow and take up sorrows upon use of the morrow, to make up our present load; as we read of daily bread, so of a daily cross, Luke ix. M, which we are bid to take, not to make.
William Gurnall
Explain to me again the difference between superstitious beliefs or pagan incantations, and scientific ones. Be braver – you cannot cross a chasm in two small jumps.
David Lloyd George
Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses…
Zack de la Rocha
Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn’t chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path.
Mark Batterson
My father was a man of love. He always loved me to death. He worked hard in the fields, but my father never hit me. Never. I don’t ever remember a really cross, unkind word from my father.
Johnny Cash
It has been said that one bad general is better than two good ones, and the saying is true if taken to mean no more than that an army is better directed by a single mind, though inferior, than by two superior ones at variance and cross-purposes with each other.
Abraham Lincoln
As the world is getting smaller, it becomes more and more important that we learn each other’s dance moves, that we meet each other, we get to know each other, we are able to figure out a way to cross borders, to understand each other, to understand people’s hopes and dreams, what makes them laugh and cry.
Jehane Noujaim
Anger is an alarm system, signaling the presence of nothing more than fear. It tells us we are working at cross-purposes to our own happiness, fearing the loss of something more than we enjoy the experience of having it.
Jesse D. Jennings
As a young child I had Santa and Jesus all mixed up. I could identify Coke or Pepsi with just one sip, but I could not tell you for sure why they strapped Santa to a cross. Had he missed a house? Had a good little girl somewhere in the world not received the doll he’d promised her, making the father angry?
Augusten Burroughs
The center of salvation is the Cross of Jesus, and the reason it is so easy to obtain salvation is because it cost God so much.
Oswald Chambers
We lose our way around the Bible when we take our eyes off the Cross.
Alistair Begg
That’s a part of human nature that men and women, women and women, whatever your sexuality, you flirt with each other and it’s completely harmless and it doesn’t really mean it crosses a line… You can tell where it is.
Lisa Stansfield
Part of my driving desire as a pastor is to remove every obstacle except the cross that would keep people from coming to faith in Christ.
Mark Batterson
While a painting, even one that meets photographic standards of resemblance, is never more than the stating of an interpretation, a photograph is never less than the registering of an emanation (light waves reflected by objects) — a material vestige of its subject in a way that no painting can be.
Susan Sontag
The moment the word ‘why’ crosses your lips, you are doing theology.
Carolyn Custis James
The cross grants us position, the Holy Spirit gives us experience.
Watchman Nee
To use the hands in making quicklime into mortar is better than to cross them on the breast in attendance on a prince.
Fill your affections with the cross of Christ that there may be no room for sin.
John Owen
If it’s cross-country ski season, I’ll be out doing that, or snowshoeing up in Quebec. In my California home, I go to the local Y and I like doing yoga. It’s been hugely beneficial to me in injury avoidance.
Neil Peart
Never, never, never on cross-examination ask a witness a question you don’t already know the answer to, was a tenet I absorbed with my baby food. Do it, and you’ll often get an answer you don’t want.
Harper Lee
The cross was two pieces of dead wood; and a helpless, unresisting Man was nailed to it; yet it was mightier than the world, and triumphed, and will ever triumph over it.
Augustus William Hare
The footing was really atrocious. I loved it. I really like Cross Country; you’re one with the mud.
Lynn Jennings
I hope that increasing numbers of Christians adopt the practice of wearing a cross in a simple and discreet way as a symbol of their beliefs.
Keith O’Brien
Not Magnus himself, who was more of a cross between a panther and a demented elf.
Cassandra Clare
I visualize the day that tridents and pentagrams are thrust into the sky from church roofs instead of crosses.
Anton Szandor LaVey
Only in Jesus Christ do we see how the untamable, infinite God can become a baby and a loving Savior. On the cross we see how both the love and the holiness of God can be fulfilled at once.
Timothy Keller
A traveler is really not someone who crosses ground so much as someone who is always hungry for the next challenge and adventure.
Pico Iyer
The place where God has supremely destroyed all human arrogance and pretension is the cross.
D. A. Carson
If I ever did cross over I would like to do it tactfully. I don’t want to offend anyone in country. Can you have the best of both worlds? I sure like the idea of it!
Bryan White
As I criss-cross the city hurrying, I feel always the unchanging cold beneath the pavement.
Mason Cooley
And it did for one wild moment cross my mind that, perhaps, those might not be the very best judges of the relation of religion to happiness who, by their own account, had neither one nor the other.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I was originally going to be a lawyer, and the only thing I remember from the art of cross-examination is – you can see this one coming up Sixth Avenue – never ask a question the answer to which you do not know.
James Lipton
Our suffering is not worthy the name of suffering. When I consider my crosses, tribulations, and temptations, I shame myself almost to death, thinking what are they in
comparison of the sufferings of my blessed Savior Christ Jesus.
Martin Luther
You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown. I wouldn’t kid Our Lord if he was on the cross. But I would attempt a joke with him if I ran into him chasing the money changers out of the temple.
Ernest Hemingway
To deny our pasts is to burn the bridge we must cross to self-understanding.
Richard Paul Evans
Weak Christians are afraid of the shadow of the cross.
Thomas Brooks
A weak understanding of what the Bible says about sin is tied to a weak understanding of what the Bible says is achieved by the cross.
D. A. Carson
Does [America] realize the meaning of every Iraqi becoming a missile that can cross to countries and cities?
Saddam Hussein
Jesus loves sinners. He only loves sinners. He has never turned anyone away who came to Him for forgiveness, and He died on the cross for sinners, not for respectable people.
Corrie Ten Boom
The cross comes before the crown and tomorrow is a Monday morning!
C. S. Lewis
Hollywood is a cross between a health farm, a recreation center and an insane asylum. It’s a company town, and I happen to like the company!
Michael Caine
We have an older following with ‘Hairy Bikers,’ but ‘Strictly’ crosses all generations.
Dave Myers
I think it’s interesting how people act on their beliefs. A lot of Christians, for instance, wear crosses around their necks. Nice sentiment, but do you think when Jesus comes back, he’s really going to want to look at a cross?
Bill Hicks
There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don’t dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves
Fernando Pessoa
Moved by the perfection of His holy love, God in Christ substituted Himself for us sinners. That is the heart of the cross of Christ.
John Stott
The greatest negative in the universe is the Cross, for with it God wiped out everything that was not of Himself: the greatest positive in the universe is the resurrection, for through it God brought into being all.
Watchman Nee
What would your prayers look like if you believed that the cross really was the measure of God’s compassion for someone?
J. D. Greear
The motive of grace is the infinite, compassionate love of a merciful God, but the work of grace was the death of Christ on the cross.
Billy Graham
In The Earthwise Herbal, Matthew Wood has revived the richness, depth, and dignity of the herbal medicine of the old masters, while at the same time endowing it with a new cosmopolitan, cross-cultural flavor that lifts it to a genuinely planetary level.
Rudolph Ballentine
Dan Quayle thinks Roe v. Wade is two ways to cross the Potomac.
Patricia Schroeder
We stand on a great threshold in the human history of space exploration. If life is prevalent in our neighborhood of the galaxy, it is within our resources and technological reach to be the first generation in human history to finally cross this threshold, and to learn if there is life of any kind beyond Earth.
Sara Seager
Like the Puritans, live in terms of the settled judgement that the joy of heaven will make amends of any losses and crosses, strains and pains that we must endure on earth if we are going to follow Christ faithfully. Regard preparedness to die as the first step in learning to live.
Joel Beeke
* Recognize that God is with you. * Acknowledge God knows what He’s doing. * Search for God’s will: the path He desires you to take in life. * Consider what God did for you when He sent Jesus to die on the cross (forgiveness and righteousness)
Brennan Manning
Nails were not enough to hold God-and-man nailed and fastened on the Cross, had not love held Him there.
St. Catherine of Siena
He will provide the way and the means, such as you could never have imagined. Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the Cross, and you will find yourself entirely.
St. Catherine of Siena
[To her younger sister on using drugs:] If you do that stuff, you’re dancing with the devil, because you never know when you’re going to cross the line and not be able to get back.
Demi Lovato
Music crosses cultures and language barriers and it makes people feel good.
John Seagall
Not one man has ever sacrificed for his Lord without being richly repaid. If the cross is only contrasted with earthly pleasures lost, it may seem hard and threatening. But when the cross is weighed in the balances with the glorious treasures to be had through it, even the cross seems sweet.
Walter J Chantry
The cross is a precious treasure to be kept secret, lest we be robbed of it.
Margaret Mary Alacoque
If you cross Fox News Channel, it’s not just me, it’s Roger Ailes who will go after youThe person gets what’s coming to them but never sees it coming. Look at Al Franken, one day he’s going to get a knock on his door and life as he’s known it will change forever. That day will happen, trust me.
Bill O’Reilly
Bob Dylan said, “The executioner’s face is always well-hidden”. That’s the problem: The cross pulls that hood off.
Robert Barron
But please know, Jesus never lets you down. Please know that the love and tenderness of Mother Mary never lets you down. And holding on to her mantle and with the power that comes from Jesus love on the cross, let us move forward, always forward, and walk together as brothers and sisters in the Lord forward.
Pope Francis
Remember that each of us has his own cross. The Golgotha of this cross is our heart: it is being lifted or implanted through a zealous determination to live according to the Spirit of God. Just as salvation of the world is by the Cross of God, so our salvation is by our crucifixion on our own cross.
Theophan the Recluse
It is not unprofessional to give free legal advice, but advertising that the first visit will be free is a bit like a fox telling chickens he will not bite them until they cross the threshold of the hen house.
Warren E. Burger
We are the hope to this world because this nation was dedicated with little white crosses that were marked along the beaches down by Virginia Beach and Plymouth that were marked and said we dedicate this land to take the Gospel to the nations and once the Gospel is taken to the nations we usher in the return of the Lord.
Paula White
Only look to Jesus. He died for you, died in your place, died under the frowns of heaven, that we might die under its smile. Regard neither unbelief nor doubt. Fear neither sin nor hell. Choose neither life nor death. All these are swallowed up in the immensity of Christ and are triumphed over in His cross.
John Fletcher
How far must a Christian go in order to be saved? Only to the Cross. But if I am disobeying God in my life and cast off His law, it is an absolute declaration of the fact that within my heart I have abandoned worship at the Cross.
Alan Redpath
The Golden Arches are now more widely recognized than the Christian cross.
Eric Schlosser
Female spies typically represented one of two extremes: the seductress who employed her wiles to manipulate men, and the cross-dresser who blended in by impersonating them.
Karen Abbott
False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade.
Christian Nestell Bovee
O happy childhood! blessed youth! But once we know thy potent power; But once we live all careless free; No cross to mar our love-lit bower.
Pablo Neruda
Always expect the unexpected. Right around Thanksgiving, when the new Alex Cross will be out. It’s called Four Blind Mice and it’s a pretty amazing story about several murders inside the military.
James Patterson
Calgary wins for my coldest New Year’s Eve gig. That’s when I learned Fahrenheit and Celsius cross at 40 below. I could see callers’ breath coming out of my phone.
Elayne Boosler
The cross is God taking on flesh and blood and saying, Me too.
Rob Bell
The most violent expression of God’s wrath and justice is seen in the Cross. If ever a person had room to complain for injustice, it was Jesus. He was the only innocent man ever to be punished by God. If we stagger at the wrath of God, let us stagger at the Cross. Here is where our astonishment should be focused.
R. C. Sproul
But leave me to my beer! Gold is dross, love is loss, so if I gulp my sorrows down, or see them drown in foamy draughts of old nut-brown, then I do wear the crown, without the cross!
George Arnold
The man or woman who doesn’t forgive has forgotten the price that Christ paid for them on the Cross.
John Bevere
There is only one way to be happy, and that is to make somebody else so, and you cannot be happy by going cross lots; you have got to go the regular turnpike road.
Robert Green Ingersoll
A cross between Leo [DiCaprio]’s character in Catch Me If You Can and … I don’t know, I really like any of his movies.
Scott Eastwood
Cross the creek on the stepping stones of your failures.
Jerry Spinelli
My hair is so scary that if you saw it walking down the street, you’d cross to the other side. This humidity is not helping. It’s just an excuse for my hair to let its frizz flag fly.
Susane Colasanti
It was not the volume of sin that sent Christ to the cross; it was the fact of sin.
Ravi Zacharias
In uniting yourself to God’s will, you take on new life and gather great courage, willingly embracing the cross and kissing His hand even when it chastises you, a hand that reaches out to you in love and has no other intention but your greater spiritual well-being.
Paul of the Cross
I want to see the stats for how many crosses there have been; it’s been incredulous
Bobby Gould
Injuries made me a believer in cross-training.
Florence Griffith Joyner
When arranging a tour around the United States I had decided to cross on the Titanic. It was rather a novelty to be on the largest ship yet launched. It was no exaggeration to say that it was quite easy to lose one’s way on such a ship.
Lawrence Beesley
He who does not welcome the Cross does not welcome God.
L. E. Maxwell
My experience of singing, as an actor, was that there’s a different creative feeling of freedom. The acting thing is a bit more defined and cerebral. I can see why people would want to cross over. If you have so much freedom on stage then perhaps you want to be confined a bit, and vice versa.
Orlando Bloom
We must pay a price to touch godliness through daily decision to die to self and embrace the cross.
K.P. Yohannan
That’s always the way with fanatics; they cross themselves at the tavern and throw stones at the temple.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
The missionary spirit is the spirit of Jesus, the spirit of the incarnation and the cross.
Hudson Taylor
God grades on the Cross not on the curve.
Adrian Rogers
Comedy is what happens when you cross the dateline from the unbearable. Things become so unbearable they become a joke.
Robyn Hitchcock
Sometimes I think what it might be like if I stayed in the background and was just singing in a choir somewhere. That crosses my mind on some of the bad days when I’m overworked. But it’s just a fleeting thought.
Tevin Campbell
A Seattle lawyer once interrupted his lengthy cross-examination of a witness and exclaimed, “Your Honor, one of the jurors is asleep.” “You put him to sleep,” replied the judge. “Suppose you wake him up.”
James Keller
Hagen said that no-one remembers who finished second. But they still ask me if I ever think about that putt I missed to win the 1970 Open at St. Andrews. I tell them that some times it doesn’t cross my mind for a full five minutes.
Doug Sanders
To stand against the deep dread-bolted thunder, In the most terrible and nimble stroke Of quick, cross lightning.
William Shakespeare
There were thousands of women in New York alone who could replace me in his life, but there was only one Gideon Cross.
Sylvia Day
Lost in my dreams, I somehow cross at the traffic signals, bumping into street lamps or people, yet moving onward, exuding fumes of beer and grime, yet smiling, because my briefcase is full of books and that very night I expect them to tell me things about myself I don’t know.
Bohumil Hrabal
Nicole Kidman in particular seems to bring out the butt-kisser in the sassiest of hackettes, as they ceaselessly strive to portray her as some sort of cross between Mother Teresa and Marilyn Monroe.
Julie Burchill
It crosses my mind that our generation may leave problems that are simply too hard for human society in the generations that follow. The structures that separate civilisation from disorder are thin and fragile. (But) I am not gloomy by nature so don’t presume that the global community will fail the young people.
Ross Garn
You must have an iron will, if you would cross the ocean. You must be strong enough to pierce mountains.
Swami Vivekananda
We have taught our people to use prayer too much as a means of comfort – not in the original and heroic sense of uplifting, inspiring, strengthening, but in the more modern and baser sense of soothing sorrow, dulling pain, and drying tears – the comfort of the cushion, not the comfort of the Cross.
Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy
Though the cross of Christ has been beautified by the poet and the artist, the avid seeker after God is likely to find it the same savage implement of destruction it was in the days of old. The way of the cross is still the pain-wracked path to spiritual power and fruitfulness.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
It was not the people or the Roman soldiers who put Jesus on the cross – it was your sins and my sins that made it necessary for Him to volunteer His death.
Billy Graham
Outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even in the toughest situations of life.
Ravi Zacharias
Any time you burn a cross in Virginia, it’s a crime?
Anthony Kennedy
When you go into the world today, before you leave your home, promise yourself that you’ll find at least one miracle. Without any limits or bounds on what you think it should look like, simply state for yourself your clear intention that of the many miracles that cross your path, you’ll recognize one of them.
Gregg Braden
But with Christ, we have access in a one-to-one relationship, for, as in the Old Testament, it was more one of worship and awe, a vertical relationship. The New Testament, on the other hand, we look across at a Jesus who looks familiar, horizontal. The combination is what makes the Cross.
Leave Jesus on the cross. He’s very happy there!
Carlos Castaneda
He who postpones the hour of living as he ought, is like the rustic who waits for the river to pass along (before he crosses); but it glides on and will glide forever.
[Lat., Vivendi recte qui prorogat horam
Rusticus expectat dum defluat amnis; at ille
Labitur et labetur in omne volubilis aevum.]
The heart of salvation is the Cross of Christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The Cross was the place where God and sinful man merged with a tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God.
Oswald Chambers
Look both ways before you cross my mind.
George Clinton
Crosses, contempt, sorrows and afflictions are the real treasures of the lovers of Jesus Christ crucified
Margaret Mary Alacoque
When you train your thoughts to dissolve as they arise, they will cross your mind like a bird crosses the sky–without leaving a trace.
Julietta Suzuki
The happy ending of the Resurrection is so enormous that it swallows up even the sorrow of the Cross.
Timothy Keller
When you live your life by poor standards, you inflict damage on everyone who crosses your path, especially those you love.
Jordan Belfort
He was born a King. The wise men came from the East and asked, ‘Where is He that is born King of the Jews?’ (Matthew 2:2). He died a King.
In Greek, in Latin, and in Hebrew the description was written above His cross, ‘This is Jesus, The King’ (Matthew 27:37)
W. A. Criswell
I don’t like the word nuclear exchange, it’s like an exchange of wheat and so on. It’s a horrible term and I always cross it out when I see it somewhere.
Fred Ikle
It was Christ who willingly went to the cross, and it was our sins that took him there.
Franklin Graham
I believe in God and not religion, because I believe religion is the double cross. Because I’ve been double crossed by three religions, so I think I can safely say that religion – there is maybe something wrong with religion. Every temple that’s put up may not be a holy one, so watch out.
Ja Rule
Being made to feel like an irrelevant child was probably an asset. Benign negligence is not a bad parental attitude or at least a cross between a benevolent dictator and benign negligence – you should just let kids crack on with it.
Clare Balding
What breaks my heart is in the United States hundreds of thousands wake up on a Sunday and church never crosses their mind.
Andy Stanley
What I’m passionate about is History, and politics interest me only insofar as it is the cross-section of History in the present.
Chris Marker
The burdens of childhood are as hard to bear as the crosses that weigh us down later in life, while the happinesses of childhood are tame compared with those of our maturer years.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Why are you so weird?” “Because my weird has to be able to cancel out your weird, Lady Cross-stitch.” “At least what I do is considered an art form.” “Yes, in ye olde medieal Europse you would’ve been quite the catch-
Alexandra Bracken
On crosses, sometimes I make my move one or two seconds before the ball is coming because I’m trying to guess that the ball is coming there. It’s intuition. So I run. Sometimes the ball comes…sometimes not. But that intuition is working.
Javier Hernandez
Each of us has been designed for one of two immortal functions, as either a storyteller or as a cross-legged listener to tales of wonder, love, and daring. When we cease to tell or listen, then we no longer exist as a people.
Bryce Courtenay
Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross.
William Barclay
I don’t think I have an unkind word for any.Except Muslims. I’ve been cross with them since 9/11 2001. I can’t remember why but it was something bad.
Ann Coulter
When a man crosses his legs and the trouser leg rides up to show the hairy shins, it offends my eyes.
Fabio Capello
Being thick isn’t an affliction if you’re a footballer, because your brains need to be in your feet. And Beckham works hard, he’s brave and he crosses a ball superbly. He treats a football like he does a wife, lovingly, with caresses.
Brian Clough
I’m not going to allow anybody to hold a badge up over me or a cross or any other power symbol and say I’m going to kill you and you’re just going to kneel down to me because I’m the law.
Ice T
And this is one of the major questions of our lives: how we keep boundaries, what permission we have to cross boundaries, and how we do so.
A. B. Yehoshua
I thrive on quick players getting to the byline and sending over crosses. I just have to be quick enough to get on the end of things. In that regard, my job has always been the same, but if we have more wide, quick players, that can only be good for me.
Peter Crouch
I learned to cross the threshold of my studio with reverence, as though I were entering a shrine set apart for me to become co-creator with the Universal Thinker of all things.
Walter Russell
Take up your own daily cross; it is the burden best suited for your shoulder, and will prove most effective to make you perfect in every good word and work to the glory of God.
Charles Spurgeon
It wouldn’t be bad to look like a cross between Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor.
Yasmine Bleeth
The cross is where God forgave his children without lowering his standards.
Max Lucado
For love, we will climb mountains, cross seas, traverse desert sands, and endure untold hardships. Without love, mountains become unclimbable, seas uncrossable, deserts unbearable, and hardships our lot in life.
Gary Chapman
If Jesus had been a hunchback, they could hardly have nailed him to the cross.
Gunter Grass
A lotta Christians wear crosses ’round their necks; do you think if Jesus comes back he ever wants to see another cross?
Bill Hicks
Cyclists. I really hate them. I wish they would not be so self-righteous and realise they are a danger to pedestrians. I wish cyclists would not vindictively snap off wing mirrors on cars when they were trying to cross in front of the car at a danger to motorists and pedestrians.
A. S. Byatt
All my life I’ve wanted to be the kid who gets to cross over into the magical kingdom.
Charles de Lint
Only when we rid ourselves of passions and lust and put the desires of flesh under the control of SpiВ­rit, only then we accept the cross and follow Christ. And “withdrawal from the world” is nothing but the destruction of passions and manifestation of the innermost life in Christ.
Vladimir Aleksandrovich Antonov
There is no cross, big or small, in our life which the Lord does not share with us.
Pope Francis
Look at Jesus Christ. Every time he was in trouble he used the Word of God. When he was tempted he used the Word. When he was suffering on the cross he used theВ Word.
Timothy Keller
God Hold us to that which drew us first, when the Cross was the attraction, and we wanted nothing else.
Amy Carmichael
The doctrine of hell does not stand alone as a kind of ancient Christian horror story. Rather, hell is inseparable from three other interrelated biblical truths: human sin, God’s holiness, and the cross of Christ.
Douglas Groothuis
The cross is the gift God gives to his friends.
Philip Neri
Anything can be misinterpreted. People can look at Christ on a cross and think, This is an image of murder, this is violent, this has sexual imagery in it. And it just – I think it’s my job as an artist to be out there pushing people’s buttons and making them question everything.
Marilyn Manson
The moon of Mahomet Arose, and it shall set; While, blazoned as on heaven’s immortal noon, The cross leads generations on.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Vocabularies are crossing circles and loops. We are defined by the lines we choose to cross or to be confined by.
A. S. Byatt
More like Cross blew your circuits during one of his sexathons. Still can’t get over that man’s stamina. Wish he’d swing my way and wear me out.
Sylvia Day
All too often we are more afraid of physical pain than of moral wrong. The cross is the standing evidence of the fact that holiness is a principle for which God would die.
Billy Graham
Our music has depth, and attempts philosophical thought and meaning with discussions of infinity, eternity and mortality. There is a line which people cross that turns it into some magical, mystical realm, for which I dont claim responsibility and dont hold any great truck with.
David Gilmour
I like to get on with people. I don’t go around being nasty, but if someone crosses me, I can be horrible back.
If we do not bear the cross of the Master, we will have to bear the cross of the world, with all its earthly goods. Which cross have you taken up? Pause and consider.
Sadhu Sundar Singh
The Cross will be for us as it was for Christ: proof of the greatest love.
Mother Teresa
I think comedians get too much credit or too much criticism for the style of comedy they do, and they generally do the style of comedy that works for them. […] There’s no kind of shrewd calculation going into the type of standup we all do. It’s like David Cross is supposed to be doing the David Cross’ type of standup.
Jim Gaffigan
By seeing life’s experiences on through to the end, on our small scale we can finally say, as Jesus did on the cross, “It is finished”. We too can then have “finished [our] preparations,” having done the particular work God gave each of us to do.
Neal A. Maxwell
Do the right thing by whoever crosses your path. Those coincidental people are your people.
Maxine Hong Kingston
The same thought… crosses my mind whenever someone tells me there’s something I can’t do: Try Stopping Me.
Anthony Robles
You can convene a wider cross-section if you have no turf to defend, because then you don’t cut across anyone else’s agenda and you can achieve a great deal.
Mary Robinson
A cross centered life is made up of cross centered days.
C. J. Mahaney
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
William Penn
Jimmy Wayne
The first song I wrote was “Look Both Ways Before You Cross” from Imaginaryland. I started the song by singing a bass line, “hoo hoo hoo hoo.”
Petra Haden
You can be Han Solo,” he said, kissing her throat. “And I’ll be Boba Fett. I’ll cross the sky for you.
Rainbow Rowell
Our policy for the last many years has been to deter the Chinese government in Beijing from ever coming into the position where they thought they had enough leverage over the U.S. to cross the Straits of Taiwan.
Bob Filner
To make films like ‘X-Men’ work commercially – and also have some class – is one of the hardest things there is to do. I want to be seen to be able to cross lots of genres and still be ‘fair dinkum,’ as we say in Australia, which means genuine and true and, well, unique.
Hugh Jackman
Seeing their children touched and seared and wounded by race prejudice is one of the heaviest crosses which colored women have to bear.
Mary Church Terrell
For Humanity sweeps onward: where today the martyr stands, On the morrow crouches Judas with the silver in his hands; Far in front the cross stands ready and the crackling fagots burn, While the hooting mob of yesterday in silent awe return To glean up the scattered ashes into History’s golden urn.
James Russell Lowell
Human relationships are patterned and cross-patterned and restricted and limited and delimited and caged and freed again by the elaborate conventions, rules and games which we call civilisation. They’re often absurd and farcical, and sometimes they’re tragic, yet we acknowledge that they are necessary.
Peter Greenaway
The white man discovered the Cross by way of the Bible, but the black man discovered the Bible by way of the Cross.
James A. Baldwin
Evangelism is a cross in the heart of God.
Leighton Ford
In India, crossbreeding programs aimed at mimicking the milk yields of Western cows like the Jerseys and the Holsteins actually breed out the capacity of our animals to pull ploughs and pulley-cars. So, thanks to cross-breeding programs, we now have humpless cattle with no stamina.
Vandana Shiva
All heaven is interested in the cross of Christ, all hell terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning.
Oswald Chambers
f you could cross a lion and a monkey, that’s what I’d be, because monkeys are funny and lions are strong.
Marlon Wayans
It’s my duty as a guardian to protect Cross Academy, day and night.
Cross a man and you struggle, one of you wins, you adjust and go on – or you lie there dead. Cross a woman and the universe is changed, once again, for cold anger requires an eternal vigilance in all matters of slight and offense
Gregory Maguire
Life is like writing with a pen. You can cross out your past but you can’t erase it.
E. B. White
If you seek to carry no other crosses but those whose reason you understand, perfection is not for you.
Teresa of Avila
Only on the cross do you have a totally holy God and a totally loving God.
Timothy Keller
To suppose that whatever God requireth of us that we have power of ourselves to do, is to make the cross and grace of Jesus Christ of none effect.
John Owen
You the devil in drag. You can burn your cross, Well, I’ll burn your flag.
Ice Cube
Challenge is the core and the mainspring of all human activity. If there’s an ocean, we cross it; if there’s a disease, we cure it; if there’s a wrong, we right it; if there’s a record, we break it; and finally, if there’s a mountain, we climb it.
James Ramsey Ullman
From the Cross, Christ teaches us to love even those who do not love us.
Pope Francis
I like when people give up chocolate for Lent. Ooh, just like being nailed to a cross.
Greg Giraldo
It is the fellowship of the Cross to experience the burden of the other. If one does not experience it, the fellowship he belongs to is not Christian. If any member refuses to bear that burden, he denies the law of Christ.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
When we grow careless of keeping our souls, then God recovers our taste of good things again by sharp crosses.
Richard Sibbes
If I want to put a Christmas tree in my yard, or three crosses for the crucifixion story, that’s fine. But if I try to use public property or a public school as a way to impress my religion on other people, I think that violates the constitution.
John Shelby Spong
I hope we will use the Net to cross barriers and connect cultures.
Tim Berners-Lee
Quite frankly, my constituency crosses a very wide swath of the political spectrum.
Vermin Supreme
Frank [Moore Cross], publicly dissects the text but he has a private, passionate relationship to the text that he doesn’t often speak of publicly.
Frank Moore Cross
I get really irritated with crap drivers, so the last time I got cross was probably behind the wheel. I’ll shout from the safety of my car, with the window up, but if anyone ever got out and challenged me I’d be terrified.
Nikki Sanderson
Since 1873, I have been back four or five times. I have used the best cameras and the most sensitive emulsions on the market. I have snapped my shutter, morning, noon and afternoon. I have never come close to matching those first plates. (On photographing The Mountain of the Holy Cross)
William Henry Jackson
I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.
George Carlin
I think it’s a novelty for cartoon characters to cross over into another strip or panel occasionally.
Bil Keane
Before we can begin to see the cross as something done for us, we have to see it as something done by us.
John Stott
There’s not 20 ways. It’s not your way. It’s either God’s way or the highway. That’s it. If you want to get to heaven, you have to come God’s way, and the way that God established was the way of His Son dying on the cross.
Skip Heitzig
May nothing entice me till I happily make my way to Jesus Christ! Fire, cross, struggles with wild beasts, wrenching of bones, mangling of limbs – let them come to me, provided only I make my way to Jesus Christ.
Ignatius of Antioch
Even on the cross He did not hide Himself from sight; rather, He made all creation witness to the presence of its Maker.
Athanasius of Alexandria
Christ has no velvet crosses.
Samuel Rutherford
Male-female conversation is cross-cultural communication
Deborah Tannen
… but I believe the divine ones will send other great masters to preach the truth to mankind, and that mankind will always receive them with the cross and the fire and the stones
Marion Zimmer Bradley
When my dad founded our church, he used either a globe or a map of the world behind him. It was symbolic of what Christ said: to go forth and preach hope to the world. We believe in the cross, but we just continued with the globe.
Joel Osteen
While the world changes, the cross stands firm.
Bruno of Cologne
We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our place, and bear our cross, and thereby rob us of our crown.
William Booth
O what is it about having one’s own Babe upon one’s Hip that makes a Woman wish to go home to her Mother? A Desire to say: ‘Look, the Circle is compleat’? A Desire to say: ‘Look, I have cross’d the Divide and now am more like you’? A Desire to say: ‘Look, this Babe I offer you is my most precious Gift’?
Erica Jong
Why did the warrior cross the road? [Koldo] That’s easy. To kill the guy on the other side. [Nicola] A bud of amusement had her smiling. Knock, knock. [Koldo] Who’s there? [Nicola] Donut. Donut who? Donut run from me, puny girl.
Gena Showalter
I wouldna cross the road to see a scrawny woman if she was stark naked and dripping wet. ~Jamie Fraser
Diana Gabaldon
Without the cross we have a meaningless and powerless Christianity.
Michael Catt
Strength isn’t about bearing a cross of grief or shame. Strength comes from choosing your own path, and living with the consequences.
Jennifer Armintrout
It is not good to cross the bridge before you get to it.
Judi Dench
Success means crossing a limit. To cross a limit you need to assume that you have a limit. Assuming a limit is underestimating yourself. If you have no boundaries then where is your success?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Our method of proclaiming salvation is this: to point out to every heart the loving Lamb, who died for us, and although He was the Son of God, offered Himself for our sins … by the preaching of His blood, and of His love unto death, even the death of the cross.
Nicolaus Zinzendorf
God undertook the most dramatic rescue operation in cosmic history. He determined to save the human race from self-destruction, and He sent His Son Jesus Christ to salvage and redeem them. The work of man’s redemption was accomplished at the cross.
Billy Graham
If I offend anybody tonight, I apologize. That’s not my intention. I’m not going to guess what your personal line of decency is; I cross my own from time to time – it’s how I know I still have one.
Daniel Tosh
The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross.
Anthony of Padua
The cross of Christ is the all-sufficient ground for the salvation of sinners. It claims to be sturdy enough to support the whole weight of our guilt all by itself. Therefore, to boast in the cross properly at all is to boast in the cross alone.
Philip Graham Ryken
When they say ‘jazz,’ I’m thinking of a word called ‘the creative process.’ It intersects every vein and tributary, avenue, path, that everyone’s living. It crosses through there, but it’s been contained.
Wayne Shorter
I think Elvis would be alive today, probably, if he had been allowed to mix and mingle with his fans. I think it was a great cross for him to bear that he couldn’t get out and be with his fans.
Minnie Pearl
We differ [with Frank Moore Cross] simply because of our differing backgrounds.
Hershel Shanks
Crosses?” “Definitely” “Why?” “Because they’re evil, soulless, bloodsucking fiends?” “So was my sixth-grade gym teacher, but he wasn’t afraid of a cross.
Rachel Caine
I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain, And troubles swarm like bees about a hive; I shall believe the heights for which I strive Are only reached by anguish and by pain; And though I groan and tremble with my crosses, I yet shall see, through my severest losses, The greater gain.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
It’s not the Jews that killed Christ. It was a political situation, and it was the Romans who killed Jesus. They put Jesus on the cross, not the Jews
Monica Bellucci
The Lord has many lovers of His crown but few lovers of His Cross.
Thomas a Kempis
When an American heiress wants to buy a man, she at once crosses the Atlantic. The only really materialistic people I have ever met have been Europeans.
Mary McCarthy
The chances of someone who looks like Jesus having pot raises steadily, to a point. If the guy is on a cross you may have the wrong guy.
Demetri Martin
I’m old school. I’m locked into my own little circle. If you cross the line, you’re going to get bit. They’ll always know where I’m coming from and once we hit the floor, there’s no doubt.
Eli Manning
One of my big philosophies is that fighting is the sport that crosses all borders. I don’t care what color you are, what country you come from or what language you speak, fighting is in our DNA. We get it and we like it.
Dana White
Buddhist meditation doen’t necessarily mean sitting cross-legged with your eyes closed. Simply observing how your mind is responding to the sense world as you go about your business – walking, talking, shopping, whatever – can be a really perfect meditation and bring a perfect result.
Thubten Yeshe
But he doesn’t love her. I invented that. It is a plot if you imagine people in love–the lazy looping criss crosses of love, blows, stares, tears. No. It doesn’t happen. No love. People meet, touch, stare into one another’s faces, shake their heads clear, move on, forget. It doesn’t happen.
Joyce Carol Oates
Come, and see the victories of the cross. Christ’s wounds are thy healings, His agonies thy repose, His conflicts thy conquests, His groans thy songs, His pains thine ease, His shame thy glory, His death thy life, His sufferings thy salvation.
Matthew Henry
If you cross the Atlantic with an American lady you invariably fall in love with her before the journey is over. Travel with the same woman in a railway car for twelve hours, and you will have written her down in your own mind in quite other language than that of love.
Anthony Trollope
Never allow the cross to lose it’s centrality to the ministry of your church. I believe we ought to connect ancient truth to contemporary questions, but the ultimate source of hope for every problem we face in our lives is the cross where Jesus died.
Brandon Cox
It is loving the Cross that one finds one heart, for Divine Love cannot live without suffering.
Bernadette Soubirous
Calumny crosses oceans, scales mountains and traverses deserts, with greater ease than the Scythian Abaris, and like him, rides upon a poisoned arrow.
Charles Caleb Colton
No one can construct for you the bridge upon which precisely you must cross the stream of life, no one but you yourself alone.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Even in war there should be lines you didn’t cross.
Suzanne Collins
Jesus Christ went to the cross to magnify his ego.
Robert H. Schuller
People, although having their own cross to carry, can minister to others through their own pain.
Martin Sheen
Ancients knew that you need guidance, patronage and protection as you move from one place or state to another, whenever you cross a bridge. You had better know what you are doing when you leave one group or place to join another.
Richard Rohr
An atheist waving a cross at a vampire was a truly pitiful sight.
Laurell K. Hamilton
The cross is going to judge everything in your life: your eating, your drinking, your sleeping, your spending, your talking. Everything is cross-examined!
Leonard Ravenhill
I like the fact that people come together who have shared values, but I don’t believe that a man died 2,000 years ago and was crucified on a cross to save me from my original sin.
Steve Coogan
The higher purpose of the cross was that the Father would be glorified by the satisfaction of His justice.
R. C. Sproul
Coaches are bridge builders. It’s our job to build a bridge for our athletes to cross over.
Rick Pitino
Do everything calmly and peacefully. Do as much as you can as well as you can. Strive to see God in all things without exception, and consent to His will joyously. Do everything for God, uniting yourself to him in word and deed. Walk very simply with the Cross of the Lord and be at peace with yourself.
Saint Francis de Sales
I certainly would absolutely never do what some of my American colleagues do and object to religious symbols being used, putting crosses up in the public square and things like that. I don’t fret about that at all; I’m quite happy about that.
Richard Dawkins
You think when Jesus comes back, he really wants to see a cross? That’s like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on.
Bill Hicks
Crosses only scare vampires away because they’re allergic to bullshit.
Richard Pryor
There is no Christian duty that is not to be seasoned and set off with cheerishness, which in a thousand outward and intermitting crosses may yet be done well, as in this vale of tears.
John Milton
I’m as patient a father as I am on the tennis court. It takes a lot for me to get really upset, but sometimes kids can get you really cross if they really keep bugging you.
Roger Federer
Crosses are of no use to us but inasmuch as we yield ourselves up to them and forget ourselves.
Francois Fenelon
I grew up near King’s Cross station in London, living in an apartment block where my dad was a caretaker.
Phil Daniels
Worry is the cross which we make for ourselves by over anxiety.
Francois Fenelon
I’ve always thought that I’m kind of a cross between a young Bill Clinton and Lyle Lovett. And I just want to say I’m proud of that. Those are two good looking guys.
James Badge Dale
The devil made you a slave. Your waitin’ for the devil to come from the ground. Take a look around. Just look at the cross that the priest is holdin’. A beast, in sheep’s clothin’. You are the prince of darkness. Hell born, demonic.
Ice Cube
God makes appointments with us in our disappointments. To see the pattern we must take three steps involving the heart, the mind, and the cross
Ravi Zacharias
As for me, my charter is Jesus Christ, the inviolable charter is His cross and His death and resurrection, and faith through Him.
Ignatius of Antioch
Love crosses all boundaries.
it is the nature of stars to cross
John Green
A raft needed to cross the river is discarded when the other shore is reached, not carried about on one’s head.
Gautama Buddha
But no, we cross, crisscross, and recross our old tracks like figure skaters.
David Mitchell
God turns on its head one form of evil – suffering – in order to defeat another form of evil – that is, our transgressions. It happened at the cross, and it occurs in the lives of followers of Christ every day.
Joni Eareckson Tada
How can we hope, after all, to see a tree or rock or clear north sky if we do not adopt a little of their mode of life, a little of their time? if the time it takes to cross space is a way by which we define it, then to arrive at a view of space “in no time” is to have denied its reality
Robert Adams
The use of force is easy to rationalize in terms of basic economics. ‘We should make them PAY for what they’ve done!’ It’s just the law of demand: raise the price of crossing us, and fewer people will cross us. Make the price another Hiroshima, and perhaps the quantity demanded will fall to zero.
Bryan Caplan
i have to cross the river of extreme awkwardness in order to get to the paradise on the other side.
David Levithan
There cannot be a secret Christian. Grace is like ointment hid in the hand; it betrayeth itself. If you truly feel the sweetness of the cross of Christ, you will be constrained to confess Christ before men.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne
I am not as cross about Thatcher now as I was in the 80s. Begrudgingly, I can see that some of her policies helped modernise Britain.
Martin Parr
The real power is love, that which empowers others, that which arouses action, that which no chain is able to hold back, for even on the Cross or on the death bed one is able to love. One does not need youthful beauty, nor recognition or approval, nor money or prestige. Let love simply bloom…and it is unstoppable.
Pope Francis
The man with a cross no longer controls his destiny; he lost control when he picked up his cross. That cross immediately became to him an all-absorbing interest, an overwhelming interference. No matter what he may desire to do, there is but one thing he can do; that is, move on toward the place of crucifixion.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The people who illegally cross into the country are from countries that have very close ties to al Qaeda, whether it’s Yemen or Afghanistan, Pakistan, China. It is an absolute national disgrace.
Rick Perry
Don’t you need a fountain of love that won’t run dry? You’ll find one on a stone-cropped hill outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus hangs, cross-nailed and thorn-crowned. When you feel unloved, ascend this mount. Meditate long and hard on heaven’s love for you.
Max Lucado
I didn’t like the King’s Cross world: it was grimy and dirty. I always envisioned myself in much more romantic and grand surroundings. I never really thought that I belonged to the working-class area at all.
Kenneth Williams
But the name Magnus Bane made him think of a towering sort of figure, with huge shoulders and formal purple warlock’s robes, calling down fire and lightning. Not Magnus himself, who was more of a cross between a panther and a demented elf.
Cassandra Clare
Some of us want the crown before the cross.
Billy Graham
There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the sea of life.
The Cross is the blazing fire at which the flame of our love is kindled, but we have to get near enough for its sparks to fall on us.
John Stott
Whoever does not seek the cross of Christ doesn’t seek the glory of Christ.
John of the Cross
Eleven times Jesus died on the cross, Eleven times falls down a body thrown upward, Eleven times also I abandon the logical flow of thought.
Daniil Kharms
You might say, ‘Can’t we have a more human Christianity, without the cross, without Jesus, without stripping ourselves?’ In this way we’d become pastry-shop Christians, like a pretty cake and nice sweet things. Pretty, but not true Christians.
Pope Francis
You cross a border and the policeman or the frontier policeman look at you, What are you doing here? Why are you coming? How long will you stay? Well, if I had nearly enough years, I would write a novel about being a refugee.
Elie Wiesel
It is a good sign when He burdens us with [crosses] and we carry them well, but woe to the person who runs away from them, for he will find such heavy ones that they will overwhelm him.
Vincent de Paul
Christ is sufficient. We do not need “support groups” for each and every separate tribulation. The most widely divergent sorrows may all be taken to the foot of the same old rugged cross and find there cleansing, peace, and joy.
Elisabeth Elliot
Every time you and I bow our heads in surrender to the will of God, we embrace the cross and we manifest to the world the heart of Christ who bowed His head to the will of His Father.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss
There’s a line, players usually don’t cross it and coaches usually don’t cross it. Every once in a while you get a little temper tantrum on both sides, I certainly have had ’em. I’m not proud of those.
Bill Parcells
Take away the cross of Christ, and the Bible is a dark book.
J. C. Ryle
People actually ask me why I bring in projects on budget and on time. It seems I am not living up to the fashionable genius role. I really enjoy when a project gets down to the wire, and through sheer force of will and faith in our process, we cross the goal line, when most people thought it impossible.
Curtis W. Fentress
I am the planet’s most affectionate life-form, something like the cross between a golden retriever and a barnacle.
Elizabeth Gilbert
What Plato was really asking was perhaps why a horse was a horse, and not, for example, a cross between a horse and a pig.
Jostein Gaarder
“Technology” is a cross-curriculum perspective running through the new Australia Curriculum, and there are a number of technology subject areas as well that include coding, which has not previously been part of the Australian Curriculum.
Susan Mann
Any time you have an individual who is very confident in their abilities to persuade, there can be a rude awakening under cross-examination.
Catherine Crier
The Bible, which ranges over a period of four thousand years, records but one instance of a death-bed conversion (the thief on the cross) – one that none may despair, and but one that none may presume.
Thomas Guthrie
I’ll be marching through the morning, Marching through the night, Moving ‘cross the borders Of My Secret Life.
Leonard Cohen
I was at a photo shoot, and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took it away. I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want a cross with me at all times.
Kate Upton
What our Lord said about cross-bearing and obedience is not in fine type. It is in bold print on the face of the contract.
Vance Havner
A religion that costs nothing is worth nothing. A cheap Christianity, without a cross, will prove in the end a useless Christianity, without a crown.
J. C. Ryle
The Christian message, like an ecosystem, is about process. In an ecological sense, the cross symbolizes a willingness to die so that the continuation of life might be served. Now we must extend our love to the unborn if we are to serve eternal life.
Wes Jackson
I work out every day. Mostly it’s free weights and cardio. I don’t do that stuff where they throw logs at you, what’s it called, cross-fit. None of that. Mainly it’s just me in the gym, lifting weights.
Justin Bieber
The dear Lord has favored us with a share of His cross. The greatest and undoubtedly the hardest to bear is the lack of success in our work here. If a saint had been in charge, all would have gone well.
Rose Philippine Duchesne
At the end of the day, God’s love for me, for you, and for the world is settled at the cross.
Andy Stanley
Any work of science, no matter what its point of departure, cannot become fully convincing until it crosses the boundary between the theoretical and the experimental: Experimentation must give way to argument, and argument must have recourse to experimentation.
Gaston Bachelard
Life begins only when we cross the borders and not definitely before!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Ah, how many Marahs have been sweetened by a simple, satisfying glimpse of the Tree and the Love which underwent its worst confict there. Yes, the Cross is the tree that sweetens the waters. ‘Love never faileth.
Jim Elliot
No one has to come see my shows who doesn’t like me talking about white Christians. They are free not buy a ticket. They’re free to leave at any time. So I’m not imposing anything on anyone. Therefore I feel free to cross the line.
George Carlin
Being for every man the touchstone of faith and love, the Eucharist, like on the Cross, divided the minds as soon as it was announced… Nothing engages a man as much as does the Eucharist
Francois Mauriac
The building is a national tragedy – a cross between a concrete candy box and a marble sarcophagus in which the art of architecture lies buried.
Ada Louise Huxtable
I believe writers need to be chameleons, or like Meryl Streep, who can play all sorts of characters. A good writer should be able to cross gender lines and people of all social classes. So for me, writing from a male point of view would be a great challenge, that I would look forward to taking on.
Marisha Pessl
That’s starting to depress me about UFOs. The fact that they cross galaxies…and always end up in places like Fyfe, Alabama.
Bill Hicks
The cross of Christ is the pledge to us that the deepest suffering may be the condition of the highest blessing; the sign, not of God’s displeasure, but of His widest and most compassionate face.
Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
Go to the cross of Christ, all you that want to be delivered from the power of selfishness.
J. C. Ryle
Our country today is at a cross-point of several crises that were triggered by three groups of causes: the effects of the 2008 world crisis, the external political and economic pressure, and the internal problems and constraints that have built up in our economy
Dmitry Medvedev
It is natural that people do not want to be involved with us too much. There is no problem down to the smallest egotistical longing which the Gestapo cannot solve. Regarded in this way we are, if a joke is permitted, looked upon as a cross between a general maid and the dustbin of the Reich.
Reinhard Heydrich
Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom, the good thief said from his cross (Luke 23:42). There are perhaps no more human words in all of Scripture, no prayer we can pray so well.
Frederick Buechner
Usually one gets a heavier cross when one attempts to get rid of an old one.
Edith Stein
What you think now about the cross of Christ, I cannot tell; but I can wish you nothing better than this – that you may be able to say with the apostle Paul, before you die or meet the Lord, ‘God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.’
J. C. Ryle
In the Christianity of Christendom the Cross has become something like the child’s hobby-horse and trumpet.
Soren Kierkegaard
My ideal city would be one long main street with no cross streets or side streets to jam up traffic. Just a long one-way street.
Andy Warhol
God put a cross between you and hell. If you want to go to hell, you will have to crawl over the cross of Jesus.
Adrian Rogers
With arms outstretched on the cross. Jesus took holy God in one hand and sinful man with the other and brought the two together.
Steven J Lawson
He does not regard the quantity of faith, but the quality. He does not measure its degree, but its truth. He will not break any bruised reed, nor quench any smoking flax. He will never let it be said that any perished at the foot of the cross.
J. C. Ryle
Frank Moore Cross is also a leading Dead Sea Scrolls scholar, which he’s been since they were discovered more than 50 years ago. He’s just completing an edition of one of the most significant scrolls for Biblical studies, the Book of Samuel from the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Hershel Shanks
Your approval before God is woven into the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, not what other men and women think about you.
Matt Chandler
Wal-mart started selling “Vampire Home Defense Kits”, including holy water, crosses, stakes, mallets, and a book of quick blessings to bar vampires from your door. The fact that these kits were generally useless didn’t bother me nearly as much as the idea of holy water being sold at wal-mart.
Molly Harper
I am not Christ or a philanthropist, old lady, I am all the contrary of a Christ I fight for the things I believe in, with all the weapons at my disposal and try to leave the other man dead so that I don’t get nailed to a cross or any other place.
Che Guevara
Both God’s love and God’s wrath are ratcheted up in the move from the old covenant to the new, from the Old Testament to the New. These themes barrel along through redemptive history, unresolved, until they come to a resounding climax – in the cross.
D. A. Carson
I think what education gives you is a voice. It gives you a way of talking to a judge. When a policeman pulls you off to the side of the road, you have a voice. When you cross a border, you have a voice. When you are writing to express your opinions, you have a voice.
Richard Rodriguez
A successful current affairs television show seems to be more and more a cross between a music hall turn and a scene in a torture chamber.
Harold MacMillan
Our own system of trying to guess what or how much a child’s mind can assimilate results in cross purposes, misunderstanding, disappointments, anger and a general loss of harmony.
Jean Liedloff
I told my mom I was going to do a movie about a son who hears a story about his mom and takes her on a cross-country road trip, and I wanted to actually take the trip with my mom to see what it would be like to drive cross-country with your mom.
Dan Fogelman
If any harm is to come to Turkey’s border security, if Turkey reaches the conclusion that this garden of peace is being threatened, it is prepared for any eventuality. We will take the necessary measures to reduce the risks related to cross-border security.
Ahmet Davutoglu
God did not die. The God who took on Himself a human nature died in His humanity, but the deity did not perish on the cross.
R. C. Sproul
Jesus defeated satan in Gethsemane on the cross, not by directly confronting the devil, but by fulfilling the destiny to which He had been called. The greatest battle that was ever won was accomplished by the apparent death of the victor, without even a word of rebuke to His adversary!
Francis Frangipane
I have a face that is a cross between two pounds of halibut and an explosion in an old clothes closet.
David Niven
Design must be an innovative, highly creative, cross-disciplinary tool responsive to the needs of men. It must be more research-oriented, and we must stop defiling the earth itself with poorly-designed objects and structures.
Victor Papanek
The world says love yourself, grab all you can, follow your heart. Jesus says deny yourself, grab your cross and follow me.
Francis Chan
John Cross is feeling very boyish about Arsenal’s chances
Alan Brazil
The cross is like a walnut whose outer rind is bitter, but the inner kernel is pleasant and invigorating. So the cross does not offer any charm of outward appearance, but to the cross-bearer its true character is revealed, and he finds in it the choicest sweets of spiritual peace.
Sadhu Sundar Singh
The decision to give ourselves to others is a daily taking up of the cross.
Charles R. Swindoll
I think that learning to read between the lines of traditional media is one way to stay informed, and also realizing that eventually you’re going to have to cross-reference all sorts of different information coming from different sources.
Immortal Technique
I had a perfect confidence, still unshaken, in books. If you read enough you would reach the point of no return. You would cross over and arrive on the safe side. There you would drink the strong waters and become addicted, perhaps demented – but a Reader.
Helen Bevington
The Tories have been offering us a cocktail of incompetence and malice and Labour haven’t done anything to draw attention to it. It’s been like watching Mesut Ozil drop perfect crosses on to the head of an increasingly frustrated Stephen Hawking.
Frankie Boyle
All my life I still have found, and I will forget it never;
Every sorrow hath its bound, and no cross endures forever.
Paul Gerhardt
The gift of Christ is not the Christian religion, but the grace and love of God which culminate in the cross.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
A man can spend several hours sitting cross-legged in the same position if he knows that noting prevents him from changing it; but if he knows that he has to sit with his legs crossed like that, he will get cramps, his legs will twitch and strain towards where he would like to stretch them.
Leo Tolstoy
I went to public schools, and while Gary was, like most American cities, racially segregated, it was at least socially integrated – a cross section of children from families of all walks of life.
Joseph Stiglitz
The ‘7500’ is with Leslie Bibb. It’s a big ensemble with a lot of really good people. I play the pilot of the 747 that something happens on as it crosses the Pacific. It’s going to do what ‘Jaws’ did to the ocean. Not make people want to get on!
Johnathon Schaech
The cross is not only imposed upon the saints as their burden, but bequeathed unto them as their legacy. It is given unto them as an honor and privilege.
Richard Alleine
How small life is here and how big nothingness. The sky, tired of light, has given everything to the snow. The two trees bow their heads to each other. Clouds cross the world’s silence in a circle dance
Robert Walser
I think there is a big difference between expressing the pain and anger that many African Americans and other people of color may feel versus language that I think now crosses the line and goes into hate.
Michael Nutter
In the cab to the station, he told me that when he was growing up he’d see a look of pleasure cross his mother’s face and ask what she was thinking: she’d say, I was just thinking of your father. “That’s how I want us to be,” Archie said. I smiled. “What?” I said, “I was just thinking of your father.
Melissa Bank
The cross means there is no shipwreck without hope; there is no dark without dawn; nor storm without haven.
Pope John Paul II
I was into the music, but the idea of showing up places on time or having to tell people when you’re not going to be somewhere – that just didn’t even cross my mind.
David Pajo
As someone who’s very nerd-minded, whenever I see a lot of cross-platform stuff when I get bonus material on either side, then it makes me want to dive deeper, sort of like tearing apart the different pieces of the pie.
Chris Hardwick
…popular fundamentalist theology has emphasized the utility of the cross rather than the beauty of the One who died on it… The “work” of Christ has been stressed until it has eclipsed the person of Christ.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
When we are succeeding – that is, when we have begun to overcome our self-doubt and self-sabotage, when we are advancing in our craft and evolving to a higher level – that’s when panic strikes. When we experience panic, it means that we’re about to cross a threshold. We’re poised on the doorstep of a higher plane.
Steven Pressfield
He that hath no cross deserves no crown.
Francis Quarles
Jesus Christ was the most perfect being to ever walk this planet and he was persecuted and nailed to the cross … so please don’t be surprised when we get a little static.
Phil Robertson
1988 I also received from the city of Vienna the cross of honour for art and science. These titles and the various honors mean a great deal to me, most of all for the reason that they would mean a great deal to my parents too.
Leon Askin
Faith, in order to be genuine and of any real value, must be the offspring of that divine love which Jesus manifested when He prayed for His enemies on the cross.
Hosea Ballou
No one can out-sin the cross of Christ.
Matt Chandler
…and he crosses the line with the ball almost mesmerically tied to his foot with a piece of string.
Ian Darke
Easter was when they nailed Him to the cross. And He never said a mumbling word.
Thomas Jefferson
I have every sympathy for writers. It’s a mystery to me what they do. I can edit. I can cross out and say, ‘I’m not saying that’ or, ‘How about we move this to here? Wouldn’t that make that bit of the story better?’ But where any of it comes from is beyond me. I will never write a play or a novel.
Alan Rickman
I’ve always been a player that likes to get round the back and get crosses in for other people. When I first burst on to the scene some people only saw the goals I was scoring. More recently they’ve taken notice of the goals I’ve set up. It is nice to be recognized for that.
Michael Owen
If a sinner comes into your assembly or you otherwise come into contact with him, remember that he is a human being for whom Christ died. He stands at the foot of the cross, just as you stand at the foot of the cross.
J. Vernon McGee
It is a fine line, in all of us, between civilization and savagery. To any who think they would never cross it, I can only say, if you have never known what it is to be utterly betrayed and abandoned, you cannot know how close it is.
Jacqueline Carey
God is Love. We eventually have to ask ourselves the question; why was Love nailed to a cross?
Pope John Paul II
Grace will ever speak for itself and be fruitful in well-doing; the sanctified, cross is a fruitful tree.
Samuel Rutherford
This is not what it is like to be you, I realized as a few of your magnificent clouds flew over the rooftop. It is just me thinking about being you. And before I headed back down the hill, I walked in a circle around your house, making an invisible line which you would have to cross before dark.
Billy Collins
BBC One’s ‘Noughts and Crosses’ feels like catching up with your oldest mates from home.
Vick Hope
I sit back on my bed cross-legged and find myself rubbing the smooth iridescent surface of the pearl back and forth against my lips. For some reason, it’s soothing. A cool kiss
Suzanne Collins
I put away my brushes; resolutely crucified my divine gift, and while it hung writhing on the cross, spent my best years and powers cooking cabbage. “A servant of servants shall she be,” must have been spoken of women, not Negroes.
Jane Swisshelm
Take our politicians: they’re a bunch of yo-yos. The presidency is now a cross between a popularity contest and a high school debate, with an encyclopedia of cliches.
Saul Bellow
It is not enough to wear an ornamental cross as a pretty decoration.
A. B. Simpson
It is there, at the foot of the cross, that we shrink to our true size.
John Stott
I’ve always wanted to drive cross-country.
Mila Kunis
I think, in many ways, certain people sought me out maybe because they liked my body language or they liked the way I wore a slit skirt, the way I cross my legs or carry my purse. It’s quite inspiring to play the seduction card.
Carine Roitfeld
A cross could be a shape for expressing something spacious; such as the coordinators of space. That could be called its first significance or its first relevance.
Antoni Tapies
Because of the Cross, God can be both just towards sin and yet mercifully justifying to sinners.
Timothy Keller
The Christmas message is that there is hope for a ruined humanity–hope of pardon, hope of peace with God, hope of glory–because at the Father’s will Jesus became poor, and was born in a stable so that thirty years later He might hang on a cross.
J. I. Packer
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard among the guns below.
John McCrae
The fate of the bridges is to be lonely; because bridges are to cross not to stay!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
In this society these days, women are widely accepted in all kinds of cross-gender areas. So yeah, it’s time!
Danica Patrick
In this case, the neurotic resembles a human being who looks up to God, commends himself to His ways, and then religiously awaits how the Lord will guide him; he is nailed to the cross of his fiction.
Alfred Adler
We look on those approaching the banks of a river all must cross, with ten times the interest they excited when dancing in the meadow.
Hester Lynch Piozzi
When I was very small, maybe 8 years old, we had a big radio that stood on four legs, and it had a cross piece underneath it, and I used to take a pillow and crawl under the radio.
Vin Scully
I’m a massive fan of Didier Drogba, I love the way he plays. He’s not as stacked as me but he’s strong and he’s still scoring goals. I’m a fan of Diego Costa as well. I think he crosses the line at times but I like the fact he doesn’t allow himself to be bullied.
Adebayo Akinfenwa
I have a natural connection with Romelu. We stay most days after training and meet up to practice my crosses and him getting on the end of them. He is a top player, and he takes up the best positions for an old-fashioned winger like myself.
Gerard Deulofeu
A richly detailed, poignant, and utterly fascinating look into another culture and how it is cross-pollinated by our own. It brings to mind the work of Ha Jin in its power and revelation of the new.
T.C. Boyle
The cross is not a detour or a hurdle on the way to the kingdom, nor is it even the way to the kingdom; it is the kingdom come.
John Howard Yoder
I can’t do the whole run but I am able to start the race and I will be there at the end when winners cross the line.
Fabrice Muamba
When Jesus died on the cross and cried out, ‘It is finished!’ He not only died for our sins, but for our diseases too.
Kathryn Kuhlman
How soon would faith freeze without a cross!
Samuel Rutherford
People with felony convictions – pending felony convictions should not be able to buy gun, but they should be able to stay in sanctuary cities, if they’re illegal, if they cross the border.
Eric Bolling
Dare to begin! He who postpones living rightly is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses.
I never considered acting while growing up. I just knew I didn’t want to go into the saloon business: I wanted to get away from Kenosha. And once I left, never, ever did it cross my mind to go back. I went to college and thought I’d study law.
Don Ameche
We were more fortunate than most, because [Bernard] Leach had been in America on a lecture tour in 1950, and we made arrangements to travel from America back to England with him on the same boat. It was a very slow boat. I think it took us about seven days to cross the Atlantic.
Warren MacKenzie
Of course, we also are soberly aware that historical problems remain in cross-strait relations, and that there will be issues in the future that will require time, patience and joint efforts to resolve.
Xi Jinping
A pitcher needs two pitches, one they’re looking for and one to cross them up.
Warren Spahn
Trust in the power of Christ’s Cross! Receive his reconciling grace and share it!
Pope Francis
I think of being an actor as kind of a young man’s gig. It’s emasculating, in a way, people messing with you and putting make-up on you and telling you when to wake up and when to go to sleep, holding your hand to cross the street. I can do it up to a certain point, and then I start to feel like a puppet.
Kevin Bacon
Julius Caesar owed two millions when he risked the experiment of being general in Gaul. If Julius Caesar had not lived to cross the Rubicon, and pay off his debts, what would his creditors have called Julius Caesar?
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
The happiest youth, viewing his progress through,
What perils past, what crosses to ensue,
Would shut the book, and sit him down and die.
William Shakespeare
I’ve never been on the cover of Empire. I’m very bitter. I’ve got an award but now I feel sad and cross.
Emma Thompson
If you see a thing that looks like a cross between a flying lobster and the figure of Abraxas on a Gnostic gem, do not pay it the least attention, never mind where it is; just keep quiet and hope it will go away – for that’s your best chance; you have none in a stand-up fight with a good thorough-going African insect.
Mary Kingsley
The actor’s life is the road. Always has been, always will be. That is his cross and his glory.
Nick Mancuso
For a moment, my heart aches for him. I should never have asked him to join me here; I should never have asked him to cross.
Lauren Oliver
I was very much a child of the 1960s. I protested the Vietnam War and grew up in a fairly politicized home. My father was like a cross between William Kunstler and Zorba the Greek. I grew up among left-wing lawyers.
Marianne Williamson
A false mind is false in everything, just as a cross eye always looks askant. But one may err once, nay, a hundred times, without being double-minded. There can never be mental duplicity where there is sincerity.
Joseph Joubert
I sense that what you two [Elie Wiesel and Frank Moore Cross] share is that you each have a public relationship to the Biblical text and a somewhat private relationship to the Biblical text.
Frank Moore Cross
I’ll toss my coins in the fountain,
Look for clovers in grassy lawns
Search for shooting stars in the night
Cross my fingers and dream on.
Tracy Chapman
Because it is a customary cross, As die to love as thoughts, and dreams, and sighs, Wishes, and tears, poor fancy’s followers.
William Shakespeare
Any kind of love that lacks the iron of the Cross in it, is anemic love.
Ann Voskamp
The Cross of Christ may have overcome evil, but it did not overcome unfairness. For that, Easter is required.
Philip Yancey
An ash-gray dog with a white blaze on its forehead burst onto the rough terrain of the market on the first Sunday in December, knocked down tables of fried food, overturned Indians’ stalls and lottery kiosks, and bit four people who happened to cross its path.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
To fly is the opposite of traveling: you cross a gap in space, you vanish into the void, you accept not being in a place for a duration that is itself a kind of void in time; then you reappear, in a place and in a moment with no relation to the where and when in which you vanished.
Italo Calvino
The artistic formulae wear thin quickly and yet daily the artist – when developing his own foundation – must enter his own time and the problems of other contemporary artists. Paths cross and the soil of time is starting to be turned.
Asger Jorn
The cross stands as the final symbol that no evil exists that God cannot turn into a blessing. He is the living Alchemist who can take the dregs from the slag-heaps of life – disappointment, frustration, sorrow, disease, death, economic loss, heartache – and transform the dregs into gold.
Catherine Marshall
In Christ alone
I place my trust
And find my glory
In the power of the Cross.
Michael English
One of biggest rules in football is you have to avoid crosses.
Jurgen Klopp
The cross is offensive because it directly confronts the evils which dominate so much of this world.
Billy Graham
My finger picking is sort of a cross between Pete Seeger, Earl Scruggs, and total incompetence.
Jimmy Page
Reality is not meant to be only creedal, though the creeds are important. Reality is to be experienced, and experienced on the basis of a restored relationship with God through that finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross.
Francis Schaeffer
My introduction to track racing was through the background of cross country running, which is not a sport perhaps as popular in America as it is in England.
Roger Bannister
God’s love is his holiness reaching out to sinners; grace is but the price that his love pays to his holiness; the cross is but its victory over sin and death; and faith is but the way in which we bring our worship to him who is holy.
David F. Wells
…just as Christian came up to the Cross, his burden loosed from off his shoulders, fell from off his back, and began to tumble down the hill, and so it continued to do till it came to the mouth of the sepulchre. There it fell in, and I saw it no more!
John Bunyan
If you’re cross-eyed and have dyslexia, can you see okay?
John Mendoza
Giving birth is priestess work; it requires a woman to pass through a painful and dangerous initiation in which she journeys to the threshold between worlds and risks her own life to help another soul cross over.
Jalaja Bonheim
You can cross the line but you can also be forgiven.
Johnny Hunt
