As America celebrates Memorial Day we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars.
Continuing a Lenten series on prayer: Prayer is co-operation with God. It is the purest exercise of the faculties God has given us - an exercise that links these faculties with the Maker to work out the intentions He had in mind in their creation.
Women were seldom given quality assignments or adequate air time.
A man is given the choice between loving women and understanding them.
Never was it given to mortal man - To lie so boldly as we women can.
I always say God should have given women one extra decade at least especially if you want a family. You're trying to pack a lot in.
Women have been called queens for a long time but the kingdom given them isn't worth ruling.
Women may not have it easy but we are given a fairer chance to reach for the top.
I continue to believe contrary to the given wisdom that it's more interesting to have an album - or indeed an individual song - which has variety rather than homogeneity.
The Divine wisdom has given us prayer not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth but as a means whereby we learn to do without them not as a means whereby we escape evil but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it.
The more I work with the body keeping my assumptions in a temporary state of reservation the more I appreciate and sympathize with a given disease. The body no longer appears as a sick or irrational demon but as a process with its own inner logic and wisdom.

We've finally given liberals a war against fundamentalism and they don't want to fight it. They would except that it would put them on the same side as the United States.
I do not believe that the men who served in uniform in Vietnam have been given the credit they deserve. It was a difficult war against an unorthodox enemy.
I'm interested in trying to explore what I think is the truth at a given time in my life and part of the process of being honest is - in my mind - talking about the idea that you're watching a movie. You're sitting here watching a movie. And I like that. It appeals to me intellectually and also in a way I can't even explain.
When I can look life in the eyes grown calm and very coldly wise life will have given me the truth and taken in exchange - my youth.
Our cattlemen have given us the safest most abundant most affordable beef supply in the world and I trust their judgment. And if you look at consumer confidence in this country so does the American public.
We should conceive of ourselves not as rulers of Earth but as highly powerful conscious stewards: The Earth is given to us in trust and we can screw it up or make it work well and sustainably.
Having been given that public trust we have a responsibility to share with the public.
Americans have been given goals to achieve in Iraq but not the standards by which to measure progress. And the only assurance Americans have been given that we can reach those goals is to trust the President and his Administration at their word.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be given space and trust.
Responsibilities are given to him on whom trust rests. Responsibility is always a sign of trust.
