How can you just leave me standing? Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold) Maybe I'm just too demanding, Maybe I'm just like my father too bold.Maybe you're just like my mother She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied) Why do we scream at each other? This is what it sounds like when doves cry. — Prince

Christians don't simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus' name, hands raised in adoration of the Father, feet washed in company with the Son. — Eugene H. Peterson

The Soviets pulled their troops out of the north and the Americans out of the south. But a year later, an emboldened North Korean military fatally underestimated America’s Cold War geopolitical strategy and crossed the 38th parallel, intent on reuniting the peninsula. The Americans knew that if they didn’t stand up for South Korea, their other allies around the world would lose confidence in them. If America’s allies began to hedge their bets or go over to the Communist side, then its entire global strategy would be in trouble. Similarly, today, countries such as Poland, the Baltic States, Japan, and the Philippines need to be confident that America has their back when it comes to Russia and China. The U.S., leading a UN force, surged into Korea and pushed Northern troops to the border with China. Chinese troops — not wanting the U.S. within striking distance — fought back and after 36 months both sides agreed to a truce back on the 38th parallel. — Tim Marshall

Prayer is the window that God has placed in the walls of our world. Leave it shut and the world is a cold, dark house. But throw back the curtains and see His light. Open the window and hear His voice. Open the window of prayer and invoke the presence of God in your world. — Max Lucado

We overthrew democratically elected leaders in the Western hemisphere during the Cold War because we were unhappy with their policies. This is the way great powers behave... We went around the world trying to create liberal democracies. Our main focus, of course, was in the greater Middle East, and you know how well that worked out. Not very well. — John Mearsheimer

Happiness in a tablet. This is our world. Prozac. Daxil. Xanax. Billions are spent to advertise such drugs. And billions are spent purchasing them. You don't even need a specific trauma, just 'general depression' is enough, or anxiety, as if sadness is as treatable as the common cold. — Mitch Albom

The defeat of Japan in 1945 left Korea divided. North was a Communist regime overseen first by the Soviets and later by Communist China; south was a pro-American dictatorship. This was the very beginning of the Cold War era, when every inch of land was contested, with each side looking to establish influence or control around the world, unwilling to let the other maintain a sole presence. The choice of the 38th parallel as the line of division was unfortunate in many ways and arbitrary. Washington was so focused on the Japanese surrender that it had no real strategy for Korea. Two junior officers chose the 38th parallel as a place to suggest to the Soviets on the grounds that it was halfway down the country. No Koreans were present, nor any Korea experts. If they had been, they could have shared that that line was the same one that the Russians and Japanese had discussed for spheres of influence half a century earlier, following the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–5. Moscow, not knowing the Americans were making up policy on the fly, could be forgiven for thinking this was the U.S.’s de facto recognition of that suggestion and therefore acceptance of division and a Communist north. The nation was divided and the die was cast. — Tim Marshall

If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? Would not a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation as to spare it the burden of existence, or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood? — Arthur Schopenhauer

Clambering up the Cold Mountain path, The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on: The long gorge choked with scree and boulders, The wide creek, the mist-blurred grass. The moss is slippery, though there's been no rain The pine sings, but there's no wind. Who can leap the world's ties And sit with me among the white clouds? — Gary Snyder

To give [the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba] even covert support is on a par with the hypocrisy and cynicism for which the United States is constantly denouncing the Soviet Union in the United Nations and elsewhere. This point will not be lost on the rest of the world, nor on our own consciences. — J. William Fulbright

We had 10 years after the Cold War to build a new world order and yet we squandered them. The United States cannot tolerate anyone acting independently. Every US president has to have a war. — Mikhail Gorbachev

The world keeps turnin' It gets merry like a merry go 'round It gets cold like a frozen winter Well I change like summer fall But I know love is all in all Seeds we're always sowing The grace is always blowing We've just got to lift the sail And we're bound to hit the shore We'll finally calm this storm. — Trevor Hall

All the smokers out there, you know that feeling. Sometimes, smoking is fantastic. — Jim Leyland
