Famous quotes containing the word ready:

    Adolescence is a time when children are supposed to move away from parents who are holding firm and protective behind them. When the parents disconnect, the children have no base to move away from or return to. They aren’t ready to face the world alone. With divorce, adolescents feel abandoned, and they are outraged at that abandonment. They are angry at both parents for letting them down. Often they feel that their parents broke the rules and so now they can too.
    Mary Pipher (20th century)

    Come, ye Sinners, poor and wretched,
    Weak and wounded, sick and sore.
    Jesus ready stands to save you,
    Full of Pity join’d with Pow’r.
    He is able, he is able, he is able;
    He is willing: doubt no more.
    Joseph Hart (1712–1768)

    A self-respecting nation is ready for anything, including war, except for a renunciation of its option to make war.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
