Words from July 2019

By: Gabriela Yareliz

These were some of the quotes that caught my ear throughout the month. I sort of ended up with a theme, I feel. Those God moments.

From Erwin McManus

“You cannot want a world of justice and walk away from the importance of truth. Because when we walk away from truth, we betray justice.”

“Truth is always an expression of its source.”

“Truth exists because God exists.”

“We only experience loss when there is love.”

From Criss Jami

“Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”

From Albert Einstein

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

From Bob Forrest (on The Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast)

“For a generation that believes in […] perfection and just society, you guys live in lies every fuckin’ day of who you are to each other, and just bullshit on top of bullshit— and I don’t mean every millennial, but in general, like, there’s a lot of lying going on.”
