The whole point of the story of Cornelius and of the admission of the Gentiles lies in the fact that these people had not accepted what up to that moment had been considered a necessary part of the Christian teaching. The question was whether they could be admitted without accepting the teaching and undergoing the rite. It was that question which was settled by the acknowledgement that they had received the Holy Spirit... The difficulty today is that Christians acknowledge that others have the Spirit, and yet do not recognize that they ought to be, and must be -- because spiritually they are -- in communion with one another. Men who hold a theory of the Church which excludes from communion those whom they admit to have the Spirit of Christ simply proclaim that their theory is in flat contradiction to the spiritual fact. (Quote by - Roland Allen)

The road to democracy is not a freeway. It is a toll road on which we pay by accepting and carrying out our civic responsibilities. (Quote by - Lucius D. Clay)

Where you raise your children isn't as important as how you raise your children. I think it's what you talk to them about, what you expose them to, what you make them mindful of. And you've got to do that anywhere you live. LA can be a very open and accep. (Quote by - Ryan Phillippe)

My rule is you want someone who's got both feet on the ground.

(Quote by - Wentworth Miller)

The people at the top can't be accepting and approving, they have to be driving it and if they're excited and if they're enthusiastic, their people will be. (Quote by - Steve Acterman)

How, then, find the courage for action? By slipping a little into unconsciousness, spontaneity, instinct which holds one to the earth and dictates the relatively good and useful. By accepting the human condition more simply, and candidly, by dreading troubles less, calculating less, hoping more. (Quote by - Henri Frederic Amiel)

You know how often the turning down this street or that, the accepting or rejecting of an invitation, may deflect the whole current of our lives into some other channel. Are we mere leaves, fluttered hither and thither by the wind, or are we rather, with every conviction that we are free agents, carried steadily along to a definite and pre-determined end?(Quote by - Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.)

It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender. (Quote by - A. W. Tozer)

Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side it is a seizing upon, an apprehending, a conquest by the Most High God. Our "accepting" and "willing" are reactions rather than actions. The right of determination must always remain with God. (Quote by - A. W. Tozer)

Acceptance of one's life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices. (Quote by - Dr. Paul Tournier)

I am learning that if I just go on accepting the framework for life that others have given me, if I fail to make my own choices, the reason for my life will be missing. I will be unable to recognize that which I have the power to change. (Quote by - Liv Ullmann)

I have a huge political problem with the role. It was essentially accepting a form of racial profiling. I think it's repulsive. But it was the first time I had. (Quote by - Kal Penn)

Sometimes what seems like surrender isn't surrender at all. It's about what's going on in your own hearts; about seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain. Because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater. (Quote by - Nicholas Evans)
