Famous quotes with Olla

  • Koskaan yritä katsoa taaksepäin, ja koskaan katse menneisyyteen. joskus ohi voi olla kuin medusa, hirvittävän gorgon pelottava ihmisen kasvot ja ottaa myrkyllisiä käärmeitä paikka hiuksiaan. Varokaa tuijottaa suoraan Medusa silmiin, sillä se voi kääntyä sivustakatsoja kiveen. Aiemmin tekee täsmälleen sama - se jäätyy te kivi kylmä, hidastaa ja lopettamalla kaikki tekosi, tavoitteita ja toiveita ..... miksi menneisyys on verrattavissa Medusa täällä. odotan tänään, juuri tällä hetkellä, esillä, että toivottaa sinut iloisesti, kuin elämän matkaa jatkuu yl

  • The inference to be drawn from all this is, that the made-up and dogmatic Christianity of the Constantinian period is simply an offspring of the numerous conflicting sects, half-castes themselves, born of Pagan parents. Each of these could claim representatives converted to the so-called orthodox body of Christians. And, as every newly-born dogma had to be carried out by the majority of votes, every sect colored the main substance with its own hue, till the moment when the emperor enforced this revealed olla-podrida, of which he evidently did not himself understand a word, upon an unwilling world as the religion of Christ. Wearied in the vain attempt to sound this fathomless bog of international speculations, unable to appreciate a religion based on the pure spirituality of an ideal conception, Christendom gave itself up to the adoration of brutal force as represented by a Church backed up by Constantine. Since then, among the thousand rites, dogmas, and ceremonies copied from Paganism, the Church can claim but one invention as thoroughly original with her — namely, the doctrine of eternal damnation, and one custom, that of the anathema.
    Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
