Naomi Janowitz quote #102 from Magic in the Roman World: Pagans

It is possible to induce incorrect notions of cause and effect in most people in just a few minutes. All that is necessary is to expose them to rewards which they believe they are generating based on their actions when in fact the rewards are randomly awarded. People will latch onto any seeming success and repeat it even when they have to explain repeated failures as well. It appears practically impossible or at least very rare for humans not to be influenced by immediate experiences of concrete results. This is true even if the experiences turn out to have limited theoretical validity. The moment of surprise is not when people repeat alchemical failures but when they begin to do something else.

Orson Scott Card quote #219 from The Memory of Earth: Homecoming

He splashed into the water his whole body not with the reverent attitude of prayer but with a desperate thirst he buried his head under the water and drank deep with his cheek against the cold stone of the riverbed the water tumbling over his back his calves. He drank and drank lifted his head and shoulders above the water to gasp in the evening air and then collapsed into the water again to drink as greedily as before.It was a kind of prayer though he realized as he emerged freezing cold as the water evaporated from his skin in the breeze of the dark morning.I am with you he said to the Oversoul. Ill do whatever you ask because I long for you to accomplish your purpose here.

Wallace Thurman quote #366 from Infants of the Spring

Beloved we join hands here to pray for gin. An aridity defiles us. Our innards thirst for the juice of juniper. Something must be done. The drought threatens to destroy us. Surely God who let manna fall from the heavens so that the holy children of Israel might eat will not let the equally holy children of Niggeratti Manor die from the want of a little gin. Children let us pray.

Stephen J. Binz famous quote #339

There is a value in repetition. When we repeat certain phrases and even actions like fingering prayer beads we create a quiet rhythm within our spirits. The beating of our heart is a repetition as is the rhythm of our breathing. All of life has its rhythms and the repetition of familiar prayers can bring our interior spirits into harmony with the Divine Heartbeat and the breathing of the Divine Christ.

Universidad de Navarra quote #346 from The Navarre Bible: Joshua to Kings

God is the only one who listens to her... she is the prototype of the devout woman who perseveres in prayer convinced that it will be heard... How many favours each of us could tell of if we recalled with gratitude the gifts we have received in order to praise God for them

Gwenn Wright quote #132 from Katherine's Journal

Even then his thoughts did not turn to prayer but to Abbie and to what she would think about his lack of prayerfulness and that surely she would have immediately broken out in prayer. Doesnt matter now he whispered and felt that he could not cry out to God.William Drexler the Third

Markham Shaw Pyle famous quote #454

Regarding Jabezs Prayer I will say at once that I am a very poor Christian and indeed a bad man. My besetting sins are many and the least of them are the fleshlier ones the really deadly ones are pride and intellectual arrogance. But I can honestly say I have never sunk to confusing prayer the souls colloquy with the Creator mortal mans dialogue with the Deity with magical incantation and the ritual of the spell.
