Quote Left This required abandoning the idea that there is a universal quantity called time that all clocks measure. Instead, everyone would have his own personal time. The clocks of two people would agree if they were at rest with respect to each other but not if they were moving. This has been confirmed by a number of experiments, including one in which an extremely accurate timepiece was flown around the world and then compared with one that had stayed in place. If you wanted to live longer, you could keep flying to the east so the speed of the plane added to the earth Quote Right
Quote Left Nothing is so intolerable to man as being fully at rest, without a passion, without business, without entertainment, without care. Quote Right
Quote Left These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead. Quote Right
Quote Left I have seen manners that make a similar impression with personal beauty; that give the like exhilaration, and refine us like that; and, in memorable experiences, they are suddenly better than beauty, and make that superfluous and ugly. But they must be marked by fine perception, the acquaintance with real beauty. They must always show self-control: you shall not be facile, apologetic, or leaky, but king over your word; and every gesture and action shall indicate power at rest. Then they must be inspired by the good heart. There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. 'Tis good to give a stranger a meal, or a night's lodging. 'Tis better to be hospitable to his good meaning and thought, and give courage to a companion. We must be as courteous to a man as we are to a picture, which we are willing to give the advantage of a good light. Quote Right
Quote Left The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows. Quote Right
Quote Left The tombstone told when she died. Her two surnames stopped me still. A virgin married at rest. Quote Right
Quote Left Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest. Quote Right
Quote Left And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest. Quote Right
Quote Left What is passion? It is surely the becoming of a person. Are we not, for most of our lives, marking time? Most of our being is at rest, unlived. In passion, the body and the spirit seek expression outside of self. Passion is all that is other from self. Sex is only interesting when it releases passion. The more extreme and the more expressed that passion is, the more unbearable does life seem without it. It reminds us that if passion dies or is denied, we are partly dead and that soon, come what may, we will be wholly so. Quote Right
Quote Left There the wicked cease from troubling, and there the weary are at rest. There the prisoners are at ease together; they do not hear the voice o... Quote Right
Quote Left John 11:11: After he had said this, he went on to tell them, 'Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.' (NIV)

He said these things, and then added, Our friend Lazarus is at rest and sleeping; but I am going there that I may awaken him out of his sleep. (AMP)

These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. (KJV)

Member Quotes About At Rest

Quote Left And apart from people, one other major thing that restrains us is our Passion, Purpose, Dream, Aspirations or Goal all wrapped up in one. The Picture of our future that we hold in our head censors what we do, where we go, what we listen to, what we view, what we read, the people we associate with, how we spend our time, what we eat or drink and every other decision. You see, the pursuit of purpose alone gives enormous restriction, this is how our life gets definition, not the Dictionary Quote Right
Quote Left One major lie the Devil gives to us is the impression that restrictions are bad, inconsiderate, and contrary to what is good for us. Honestly, it is a Lie. The truth is, Restrictions are set up by People that Love us, to Keep us from destruction and save us from their own bad experiences. Quote Right
Quote Left Its not the monkey on your back that restricts you, its the monkey on your mind. Quote Right
