Man being born of one so frail must be frail himself (Matthew ). few days — (Genesis ; Psalm ). Literally, “short of days.” Man is the reverse of full of days and short of trouble. I'm not sure if there's an easy moral to My Life, and yet it deals with moral issues, far more subtly and convincingly than a book like Lolita. Books should be realistic, in the sense of reflecting some kind of reality, but I much prefer a book like this, where Misail makes a moral choice and then has to deal with the realities of that choice.4/5().

A discourse of the brevity and misery of human life: occasioned by the death of John Sams, Esq ; By George Sendall. From his familiarity with the humanistic nature of classical writings, Manetti wrote a spirited rebuttal to On the Misery of Human Life—a book published under the name of Pope Innocent III.

In this ecclesiastical work, all of the Church’s overt disgust with the human body and human behavior was poured forth in a torrent of invective. The Brevity and Burden of Life. and among them is the just estimate of human life, which may be made by all with advantage, though by few, very few, with delight.

Since the mind is always of itself shrinking from disagreeable images, it is sometimes necessary to recall them; and it may contribute to the repression of many unreasonable. Bible verses about Brevity Of Life.

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. DISCOURSES OF NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI ON THE FIRST TEN (BOOKS) OF TITUS LIVIUS TO ZANOBI BUONDELMONTI AND COSIMO RUCELLAI FIRST BOOK.

When I consider how much honor is attributed to antiquity, and how many times, not to mention many other examples, a fragment of an antique statue has been bought at a great price in order to have it near to one, honoring his house. This results in separation from God and ends in misery.

The Bible says: All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's holiness (Romans ). The result of unforgiven sin is death. From Misery to Enlightenment provokes energy, optimism and enthusiasm for life and its gifts.

It is not a holy book, nor is it a confession of faith. It is a lively and readable account which allows a deep understanding of the vast scope of his teaching, which is directed towards helping us understand who we are, and which is widely debated and.

Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation is an insightful discourse on discovering one’s true self and vocation. Many of us would be familiar with the experience of striving to live up to the expectations of others.

We may even have made career choices or decisions that are far removed from who we really are/5(). The book purports to be a commentary on works of Roman historian Titus Livius (known as Livy), specifically those books which cover the history of the Roman Empire between the eighth and third centuries B.C.E.

However, Livy's work is only a touchstone for Machiavelli's observations about the nature of political life and the laws governing it.

Life is Brief: Life must be pursued in its brevity with the perspective of its futility and one’s accountability before God 1) Light and Darkness: One must enjoy the beauty and light of youth in the perspective of the certain darkness which is to come Our senses perceive no extreme.

Too much sound deafens us; too much light dazzles us; too great distance or proximity hinders our view. Too great length and too great brevity of discourse tend to obscurity; too much truth is paralysing (I know some who cannot understand that to take four from nothing leaves nothing). Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible.

Lord, make me to know mine end - This expresses evidently the substance of those anxious and troubled thoughts Psalm to which he had been unwilling to give utterance. His thoughts turned on the shortness of life; on the mystery of the divine arrangement by which it had been made so short; and on the fact that so many troubles and sorrows had been.

The Discourses, which started as a commentary on Livy's History of Rome, became something broader. It is known as Machiavelli's pro-republic book, and it is, but it is important to realize that he did not have a modern concept of a republic -- to him, a republic meant a city state with a republican form of government (a mix of autocracy, aristocracy and democracy)/5().

Equality, it seems to him, is a necessary condition for the preservation of liberty. The Discourse on Inequality hammers on the idea that property, and material inequality, are the root cause of human misery and evil.

And again, in Chapter 11 of The Social Contract, he argues that gross material inequality can put liberty up for sale. The poor would be willing to sell their freedom and the rich would. In an intimate setting he responds directly to questions on happiness and misery, relationship and aloneness, ego and consciousness, energy and sex, love and prayer, logic and madness, meditation and surrender, enlightenment and the master-disciple connection.

\\INTRODUCTION TO PSALM 90\\ \\ >\\. Here begins the fourth part of the book of Psalms, and with the most ancient psalm throughout the whole book, it being written by Moses; not by one of that name that lived in later times; nor by one of his posterity; nor by some one who composed it, agreeably to his words and doctrines, and called it by his name; but by that Moses by whom the Lord brought.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW. The position of the Gospel according to Matthew as the first of the four gospels in the New Testament reflects both the view that it was the first to be written, a view that goes back to the late second century A.D., and the esteem in which it was held by the church; no other was so frequently quoted in the noncanonical literature of earliest Christianity.
