Study Room Guidelines

Ok it isn't so quiet in here but our resident librarian will ensure that there is good discussion on literature, prose, poetry, etc. You may also post sermons, notes, and the like as long as it is not copyrighted material and within reason of the post length regulation.

We encourage you to take a lose look at the threads and offer honest and useful input. This forum is a place where we discuss literature of any media, as well as personal creations by some of our own wordsmiths. Debate is encouraged, but we often find ourselves relaxing here.

  • Notable Quotes

    This thread is for quoting something you read or heard that bears repeating so that everyone may benefit. We have our signatures, but we can't put everything notable in our signatures. So, post an edifying, humorous, uplifting or though provoking quote. The thread is open to all!


    My first contribution:

    "The difference between death and taxes...is that death does not get worse every time Congress meets." - Will Rogers

    "What has the Church gained if it is popular, but there is no conviction, no repentance, no power?" - A.W. Tozer

    "... there are two parties in Washington, the stupid party and the evil party, who occasionally get together and do something both stupid and evil, and this is called bipartisanship." - Everett Dirksen

      It presumes, does it not, that we can not stop electing people who will soil our government.

        I don't think LJ intends this as a debate thread.

            I have used this on many sympathy cards I have made.

            Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
            and death is only a horizon;
            and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.”
            – Rossiter Worthington Raymond

                  Ooops, did LJ think it was not a notable statement?

                    Do you have a QUOTE to contribute?

                    "Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt" (often attributed to Mark Twain or Abe Lincoln)

                    Probably inspired by Proverbs 17:28.

                    Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue. (NIV)

                    Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (KJV)
                    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”
