The world is intimidating
The young Graham often felt restless and resentful during his family’s Bible reading, praying, and psalm singing. He invited Billy to the meeting by saying, “Why don’t you come out and hear our fighting preacher? —constructing opportunities for people to encounter Jesus. That young man helped shape eternity in many by investing in the one right in front of him.But that all changed one night after he surrendered his life to Christ at a tent revival in Charlotte. But do you know the name of Graham’s teenage friend who invited him to that tent revival? ” The deal was then clinched when Mc Makin offered to let Billy drive his dairy truck to the meetings. Though that may not always seem far-reaching, it is much bigger than you realize.This arbitrary conduct did not succeed in intimidating the other Councillors.“Whoever has experienced the power and the unrestrained ability to humiliate another human being automatically loses his own sensations.Tyranny is a habit, it has its own organic life, it develops finally into a disease.The habit can kill and coarsen the very best man or woman to the level of a beast. the return of the human dignity, repentance and regeneration becomes almost impossible.” ― “When the Washington Post telephoned me at home on Valentine's Day 1989 to ask my opinion about the Ayatollah Khomeini's fatwah, I felt at once that here was something that completely committed me.He went down back first and I caught him by his throat, three feet above the ground, lifted him up a bit and bent down to his face. If you make any trouble for me or my people, I’ll hunt you down like the pig you are and carve a second mouth across your gut. The next time you hear something laugh and howl in the night, hug your family, because you won’t see the sunrise.”I opened my fingers.He crashed on the ground, his face white as a sheet.
The three shapeshifters stared at me, openmouthed.“That’s how you intimidate people. What doesn't surrender in reverence is blasphemous to a high opinion of oneself - the burden of self-importance. in no instance has a system in regard to religion been ever established, but for the purpose, as well as with the effect of its being made an instrument of intimidation, corruption, and delusion, for the support of depredation and oppression in the hands of governments.” ― “It is very important to a lot of people to make unmistakably clear to themselves and to the universe that they love the universe but are not intimidated by it and will not be shaken by it, no matter what it has in store.
Dove, too, is a toy or possibly a dog as I lead her through the throngs of people.” ― “We like to stress the commonness of heroes. We want to admire but think we have a right not to be intimidated. Parents and other family members have called or written me insisting on talking with me about my patients' cases, despite my clearly indicating I can't because of professional confidentiality.
I have had other parents and family members investigate me -- look into my professional background -- hoping to find something to discredit me to the patients I was seeing at the time because they disputed their memories.
I was on the point of saying this, but Schomberg's stare was intimidating."Vow it then, madame," cried the prince, furious at not intimidating his victim.
The tone of the press there was intimidating, particularly toward Russia.
