"Lord Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!"

« on: June 27, 2012, 02:35:18 AM »

I thought it would be interesting to start a thread where people posted some of their favorite quotes from movies or television shows. Feel free to post humorous quotes if you wish, but I'd like this to be primarily a thread of philosophical, spiritual, and inspirational quotations. Also, rate the movie or television program from which the quotation came on a scale of one to four (four being the highest.) One last thing: let's try to keep this thread from turning into a running list of quotes from the same source (e.g. three pages of Star Trek quotations.)

OK, I'll start with these:


"When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God's light shines on you."

"Happiness is only real when it's shared."

INTO THE WILD- 4


"Great ambition and conquest without contribution is without significance."

I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I'd like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can't be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.
 


I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

"You can do whatever you want with your life, but one day you'll know what love truly is. It's the sour and the sweet. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet."
-Vanilla Sky

 "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"
-A Few Good Men

I actually heard the quote from A Few Good Men referenced in an Orthodox sermon I listened to on line once. It certainly applies to a guy like me. If God granted me my wish and revealed Himself (Truth) in His fullness all at once, I fear I would end up like King Solomon as a babbling madman. Lord knows in my broken state I cannot handle the whole Truth. May He continue to bless me with Understanding, in His will, His way, and in His perfect discernment of time.

At risk of repeating the same source I forgot a couple others I like from Vanilla Sky:

I saw this movie in the theater with my mother when it first came out. When this scene occurred, I couldn't contain my laughter. I felt so ashamed, and my mom cast a disapproving glance at me, but then finally she laughed out loud too.

"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone."

"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."

Dead Poets Society 4

Not sure if this next quote counts as it is from a poem that is quoted in the movie. I might be breaking the rules here Gebre! Grin  While we are all sinners and fall short of God's glory it is also from Walt Whitman who allegedly lived a very questionable life to say the least. Then again who am I to judge and the man wrote some great poems near as I can tell...

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Interesting to me that as a young man searching for something this poem was very powerful indeed. Now that I know what I'm searching for, and strive to grow in the author of this powerful play we call life, this poem means more than I could have possibly imagined back then. God's grace is surely given freely to all for it has been given to a fool like me.

Lord God I love you, have mercy, and continue to purify my sinful heart. Continue to bless me with the Holy Spirit strengthening my faith for my faith is still weak. Forgive me Lord Jesus, I have little faith.

What will my verse be? Hopefully whatever God wills. This morning let me begin by offering peace, grace, and love to you all. 

God bless!

I'm really glad you posted that, Alan. Lately I've been feeling very uncertain about my future -- I've been thinking a lot about the possibility of becoming Orthodox which, in addition to the anxiety it produces directly, for me entails also the question "Does considering leaving the Catholic Church make one a bad Catholic?" Anyhow, that Walt Whitman verse

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

really speaks to me at the moment. (Sorry if I'm going too far off-topic.  Embarrassed  Undecided)

"Back in line, dirtbag!" - Apostle Paul
Sounds like a line from Police Academy. police

I was trying to make a joke but messed it up. I remember that actor (GW Bailey) being in a biblical movie, but it wasn't St. Paul he played, but St. Barnabas:



The movie though was titled Paul the Apostle  Smiley

"Lord Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!"

"Sucking the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone."

"There's a time for daring and there's a time for caution, and a wise man understands which is called for."

Dead Poets Society 4

Not sure if this next quote counts as it is from a poem that is quoted in the movie. I might be breaking the rules here Gebre! Grin  While we are all sinners and fall short of God's glory it is also from Walt Whitman who allegedly lived a very questionable life to say the least. Then again who am I to judge and the man wrote some great poems near as I can tell...

"...what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. "That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Interesting to me that as a young man searching for something this poem was very powerful indeed. Now that I know what I'm searching for, and strive to grow in the author of this powerful play we call life, this poem means more than I could have possibly imagined back then. God's grace is surely given freely to all for it has been given to a fool like me.

Lord God I love you, have mercy, and continue to purify my sinful heart. Continue to bless me with the Holy Spirit strengthening my faith for my faith is still weak. Forgive me Lord Jesus, I have little faith.

What will my verse be? Hopefully whatever God wills. This morning let me begin by offering peace, grace, and love to you all. 

God bless!

 


Great quotes and great thoughts my friend!

There are heathens that live with more virtue than I. The devil himself believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Neither of these things truly makes me Christian.

"Leslie and I have an amazing relationship and it's very physical; he still pushes all my buttons. People say, 'Oh, but he's so much older than you,' and you know what, I'm the one having to push him away. We have so much in common. We both love soup and snow peas, we love the outdoors, and talking and not talking. We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about."
