+ 517 Accounts of outrages committed by mobs form the every-day news of the times. They have pervaded the country from New England to Louisiana, they are neither peculiar to the eternal snows of the former nor the burning suns of the latter; they are not the creature of climate, neither are they confined to the slaveholding or the non-slaveholding States. Alike they spring up among the pleasure-hunting masters of Southern slaves, and the order-loving citizens of the land of steady habits. Whatever then their cause may be, it is common to the whole country. [...] Such are the effects of mob law, and such are the scenes becoming more and more frequent in this land so lately famed for love of law and order, and the stories of which have even now grown too familiar to attract anything more than an idle remark. But you are perhaps ready to ask, "What has this to do with the perpetuation of our political institutions?" I answer, "It has much to do with it." Its direct consequences are, comparatively speaking, but a small evil, and much of its danger consists in the proneness of our minds to regard its direct as its only consequences. Abraham Lincoln

+ 269 Every day of our lives and in every season of the year (not just at Easter time), Jesus asks each of us, as he did following his triumphant entry into Jerusalem those many years ago, ‘What think ye of Christ? whose son is he?’ (Matt. 22:42.) We declare that he is the Son of God, and the reality of that fact should stir our souls more frequently. I pray that it will, this Easter season and always. Howard W. Hunter

+ 201 Just 'cause there's snow on the roof doesn't mean there's not a fire inside. Bonnie Hunt

+ 247 Love has a tide! Helen Hunt Jackson

+ 151 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord. Bereshit 10:9

+ 179 And the youths grew up, and Esau was a man who understood hunting, a man of the field, whereas Jacob was an innocent man, dwelling in tents. Bereshit 25:27

+ 193 But Rebecca overheard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son, and Esau went to the field to hunt game, to bring it. Bereshit 27:5

+ 190 And it came to pass, when Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and it came to pass Jacob had just left his father Isaac's presence, that his brother Esau came from his hunt. Bereshit 27:30

+ 243 And Isaac shuddered a great shudder, and he said, Who then is the one who hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate of everything while you had not yet come, and I blessed him? He, too, shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:33

+ 37 Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. Chinua Achebe
