It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley (Echoes of Life and Death;)
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley (Invictus)
We prefer to go deformed and distorted all our lives rather than not resemble the portrait of ourselves which we ourselves have first drawn. It’s absurd. We run the risk of warping what’s best in us
André Gide (Strait is the Gate and The Vatican Cellars)
خير لحظات الحب هي ما سبقت قول أحبّك.
André Gide (Strait is the Gate)
That is the only way to understand rightly this picture of the false prophets. The false prophet is a man who has no `strait gate' or `narrow way' in his gospel. He has nothing which is offensive to the natural man; he pleases all.
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (Studies in the Sermon on the Mount)
La tristesse est une complication. Jamais je ne cherchais à analyser mon bonheur. ... Et je me demande à present si c'est bien le bonheur que je souhaite ou plutôt l'acheminement vers le bonheur.
André Gide (Strait is the Gate)
Ah! que ce qu'on appelle bonheur est chose peu étrangère à l'âme et que les éléments qui semblent le composer du dehors importent peu!
André Gide (Strait is the Gate)
XXVII Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the Gate: "To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better Than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers, And the temples of his gods, XXVIII "And for the tender mother Who dandled him to rest, And for the wife who nurses His baby at her breast, And for the holy maidens Who feed the eternal flame, To save them from false Sextus That wrought the deed of shame? XXIX "Haul down the bridge, Sir Consul, With all the speed ye may; I, with two more to help me, Will hold the foe in play. In yon strait path a thousand May well be stopped by three. Now who will stand on either hand, And keep the bridge with me?" XXX Then out spake Spurius Lartius; A Ramnian proud was he: "Lo, I will stand at thy right hand, And keep the bridge with thee." And out spake strong Herminius; Of Titian blood was he: "I will abide on thy left side, And keep the bridge with thee." XXXI "Horatius," quoth the Consul, "As thou sayest, so let it be." And straight against that great array Forth went the dauntless Three. For Romans in Rome's quarrel Spared neither land nor gold, Nor son nor wife, nor limb nor life, In the brave days of old. XXXII Then none was for a party; Then all were for the state; Then the great man helped the poor, And the poor man loved the great: Then lands were fairly portioned; Then spoils were fairly sold: The Romans were like brothers In the brave days of old. XXXIII Now Roman is to Roman More hateful than a foe, And the Tribunes beard the high, And the Fathers grind the low. As we wax hot in faction, In battle we wax cold: Wherefore men fight not as they fought In the brave days of old.
Thomas Babington Macaulay (Lays of Ancient Rome)
Take an instance: the removal of the motto [In God We Trust] fetched out a clamor from the pulpit; little groups and small conventions of clergymen gathered themselves together all over the country, and one of these little groups, consisting of twenty-two ministers, put up a prodigious assertion unbacked by any quoted statistics and passed it unanimously in the form of a resolution: the assertion, to wit, that this is a Christian country. Why, Carnegie, so is hell. Those clergymen know that, inasmuch as "Strait is the way and narrow is the gate, and few — few — are they that enter in thereat" has had the natural effect of making hell the only really prominent Christian community in any of the worlds; but we don't brag of this and certainly it is not proper to brag and boast that America is a Christian country when we all know that certainly five-sixths of our population could not enter in at the narrow gate.
Mark Twain
Aren’t you strong enough to walk alone? We must each of us find God by ourselves.
André Gide (Strait is the Gate)

William Ernest Henley Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Read the following passages of God's word, and see if religion be a light and easy work. "Seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness." "Strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." "Labor for that food which endures unto eternal life." "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life." "Whoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Ivy Asher (Awakened And Betrayed (The Lost Sentinel, #2))
- Anh ơi, nàng nói và quay mặt không nhìn, ở bên anh em thấy sung sướng vạn phần, không gì sánh được... nhưng anh hãy tin em: Chúng ta sinh ra không phải để tìm hạnh phúc. Tôi sôi nổi đáp: -Linh hồn con người còn có thể tìm ra được gì hơn hạnh phúc nữa? Nàng nói rất nhỏ: -Lòng trong sạch thiêng liêng.

Alexandra Bracken (Passenger (Passenger, #1))
Wisdom is the beginning: get wisdom therefore: and above all thy possession get understanding. 8 Exalt her, and she shall exalt thee: she shall bring thee to honor, if thou embrace her. 9 She shall give a comely ornament unto thine head, yea, she shall give thee a crown of glory. 10 Hear, my son, and receive my words, and the years of thy life shall be many. 11 I have taught thee in ye way of wisdom, and led thee in the paths of righteousness. 12 When thou goest, thy gate shall not be strait, and when thou runnest, thou shalt not fall. 13 Take hold of instruction, and leave not: keep her, for she is thy life. 14 Enter not into the way of the wicked, and walk not in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, and go not by it: turn from it, and pass by.

The Way, the Taoist path of life, is represented by (or exists on) the border between the twin serpents. The Way is the path of proper Being. It’s the same Way as that referred to by Christ in John 14:6: I am the way, and the truth and the life. The same idea is expressed in Matthew 7:14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Jordan B. Peterson (12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos)
24oStrive to enter in at the 18strait gate: for pmany, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25qWhen once the master of the house is risen up, and rhath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand 19without, and to knock at the door, saying, sLord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, tI know you not 20whence ye are: 26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27uBut he shall say, I tell you, I know you not 21whence ye are; vdepart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28wThere shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, xwhen ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. 29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30yAnd, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

- Nhưng con ạ, ý con muốn hiểu thế nào với tiếng "đặc biệt" ? Người ta có thể rất đặc biệt mà không có vẻ gì đặc biệt hết, ít nữa cũng trước mắt người đời... rất đặc biệt trước mắt Thượng Đế ! - Chính ý con muốn hiểu thế đấy. - Hơn nữa... làm sao có thể biết ? Jérôme còn trẻ quá. Ừ, thật thế, nó hứa hẹn rất nhiều; nhưng chừng đó chưa đủ để thành công. - Phải cần những gì nữa ? - Sao con hỏi tỉ mỉ thế ? Cần phải tin tưởng, cần được nâng đỡ, cần tình yêu... - Cần được nâng đỡ là nghĩa thế nào ? Alissa ngắt lời. - Là tình thương yêu, là sự quý chuộng, mà ba đã thiếu hẳn. Cậu tôi buồn rầu đáp, rồi giọng hai người lại nhỏ hẳn đi.
André Gide (Strait is the Gate)
Các con nên thận trọng đừng vội xét đoán người theo một đoạn đời nào của họ. Tất cả những điểm nào trong tính tình của dì Plantier mà các con không thích, là do những sự tình, những biến cố nào xảy ra trong đời, cậu biết rõ nên không thể phẩm bình nghiêm khắc như các con. Có những đức tính nào dễ thương của tuổi trẻ mà chẳng hư hỏng mất khi về già.

Enter ye in at the astrait gate; for strait is the gate, and narrow is the way that leads to life, and few there be that find it; but wide is the gate, and broad the way which leads to death, and many there be that travel therein, until the night cometh, wherein no man can work.

Helaman 3:27   27  Thus we may see that the Lord is merciful unto all who will, in the sincerity of their hearts, call upon his holy name. Helaman 3:28   28  Yea, thus we see that the gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God. Helaman 3:29   29  Yea, we see that whosoever will may lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, and lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked— Helaman 3:30   30  And land their souls, yea, their immortal souls, at the right hand of God in the kingdom of heaven, to sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and with Jacob, and with all our holy fathers, to go no more out.

Morning, August 18 "Strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the Lord's house." Jeremiah 51:51 In this account the faces of the Lord's people were covered with shame, for it was a terrible thing that men should intrude into the Holy Place reserved for the priests alone. Everywhere about us we see like cause for sorrow. How many ungodly men are now educating with the view of entering into the ministry! What a crying sin is that solemn lie by which our whole population is nominally comprehended in a National Church! How fearful it is that ordinances should be pressed upon the unconverted, and that among the more enlightened churches of our land there should be such laxity of discipline. If the thousands who will read this portion shall all take this matter before the Lord Jesus this day, he will interfere and avert the evil which else will come upon his Church. To adulterate the Church is to pollute a well, to pour water upon fire, to sow a fertile field with stones. May we all have grace to maintain in our own proper way the purity of the Church, as being an assembly of believers, and not a nation, an unsaved community of unconverted men. Our zeal must, however, begin at home. Let us examine ourselves as to our right to eat at the Lord's table. Let us see to it that we have on our wedding garment, lest we ourselves be intruders in the Lord's sanctuaries. Many are called, but few are chosen; the way is narrow, and the gate is strait. O for grace to come to Jesus aright, with the faith of God's elect. He who smote Uzzah for touching the ark is very jealous of his two ordinances; as a true believer I may approach them freely, as an alien I must not touch them lest I die. Heart searching is the duty of all who are baptized or come to the Lord's table. "Search me, O God, and know my way, try me and know my heart.

Three hidden keys open three secret gates Wherein the errant will be tested for worthy traits And those with the skill to survive these straits Will reach The End where the prize awaits
Ernest Cline (Ready Player One (Ready Player One, #1))
It is so easy to practice a creditable degree of so seeming virtue, and so difficult to purify and direct the affections of the heart, that I feel myself in continual danger of appearing better than I am; and I verily believe it is possible to make one’s whole life a display of splendid virtue and agreeable qualities, without ever setting foot towards the narrow path, or even one’s face towards the strait gate.” – Hannah More

How narrow is the gate and strait is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it!”6 are words of our Lord. 8. The narrow gate
Juan de la Cruz (Dark Night of the Soul)
How narrow is the gate and strait is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it!”6 are words of our Lord. 8. The narrow gate is this night of sense. The soul detaches itself from sense that it may enter on it, basing itself on faith,7 which is a stranger to all sense, that it may afterwards travel along the strait road of the other night of the spirit, by which it advances towards God in most pure faith, which is the means of union with Him. This road, because so strait, dark, and terrible—for there is no comparison, as I shall show,8 between its trials and darkness and those of the night of sense—is traveled by very few, but its blessings are so much the more. I shall begin now to say somewhat, with the utmost brevity, of the blessings of the night of sense, that I may pass on to the other.

Scylla and Charybdis. From misremembering the Mythology lessons at St Peter’s School – unless it was at Copenhagen Street – I believed for a long time that these names referred to innocent rocky islets at the entrance to the Straits of Messina in Sicily. Two columns forming Italy’s southern gate, in this Mare Nostrum glorified by il Duce. And I thought that if pillars like these existed in London they would be, on the one hand, Clerkenwell, the Little Italy where we lay rotting, and then Soho, the capital’s other Italian neighbourhood, at once sulphurous and more dazzling.
