adultery

The aura of the theocratic death penalty for adultery still clings to America, even outside New England, and multiple divorce, which looks to the European like serial polygamy, is the moral solution to the problem of the itch. Love comes into it too, of course, but in Europe we tend to see marital love as an eternity which encompasses hate and also indifference: when we promise to love we really mean that we promise to honor a contract. Americans, seeming to take marriage with not enough seriousness, are really taking love and sex with too much.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The task of an American writer is not to describe the misgivings of a woman taken in adultery as she looks out of a window at the rain but to describe four hundred people under the lights reaching for a foul ball. This is ceremony.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Autobiography is now as common as adultery and hardly less reprehensible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hypocrisy is the most difficult and nerve-racking vice that any man can pursue; it needs an unceasing vigilance and a rare detachment of spirit. It cannot, like adultery or gluttony, be practiced at spare moments; it is a whole-time job.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Here, my dear Lucy, hide these books. Quick, quick! Fling Peregrine Pickle under the toilette --throw Roderick Random into the closet --put The Innocent Adultery into The Whole Duty of Man; thrust Lord Aimworth under the sofa! cram Ovid behind the bolster; there --put The Man of Feeling into your pocket. Now for them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sammy: Anyway, I don't know what the Church's official position is on fornication and adultery these days, and I felt really hypocritical not saying anything to you about it before. So, what is the official position these days?
Ron: Well... it's a sin.More [10/14/2005 12:10:00]
But, you know, there's still an argument, there's still ten states that outlaw premarital sex, and many more states where adultery is still outlawed and a crime.More [11/24/2006 12:11:00]
Danny:
I've been a kid, and I've been an adult. And believe me, adultery isn't what it's cracked up to be.

Mr. Neville:
Well, that was ingenious.



Mrs. Talmann:
Since when has adultery been ingenious? You are ridiculous, Mr. Neville.

Miss Scarlet:
I hardly think it will enhance your reputation at the U.N. Professor Plum, if it's revealed that you have been implicated not only in adultery with one of your patients, but in her death and the deaths of five other people.



Professor Plum:
You don't know what kind of people they have at the U.N., I might go up in their estimation.

Sammy:
I don't know what the church's official position is on fornication and adultery these days, and I felt really hypocritical not saying anything to you about it before, but... what *is* the official position these days?



Ron:
Well... it's a sin.



Sammy:
Good, I think it should be!



Ron:
But we try not to focus on that aspect right off the bat.



Sammy:
Why not? I think you should.



Ron:
Well...



Sammy:
Maybe it was better when they screamed at you from the box for having sex with your married boss, they told you what a terrible thing it was, they were really mean to you. Maybe it would be better if you just told me that I'm endangering my immortal soul and that if I don't stop, I'm gonna burn in hell. Don't you ever think that?



Ron:
No, not really.

Tom:
You know what the worse thing about adultery is? Once you do it, no how many years your faithful you're always an adulterer, life is harsh like that. You fuck once you can never be a virgin again, you steel once you're always a thief, and you lie once you're always a liar.

My duty is to maintain authority over Rome's legions; you undermine that with your adultery which you don't even attempt to conceal. I can not live with that!

Feast of Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa, & his sister Macrina, Teachers, c.394 & c.379 Love is careful of little things, of circumstances and measures, and of little accidents; not allowing to itself any infirmity which it strives not to master, aiming at what it cannot yet reach, desiring to be of an angelic purity, and of a perfect innocence, and a seraphical fervor, and fears every image of offense; is as much afflicted at an idle word as some at an act of adultery, and will not allow to itself so much anger as will dMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Feast of Antony of Egypt, Abbot, 356 Commemoration of Charles Gore, Bishop, Teacher, Founder of the Community of the Resurrection, 1932 Any such distinction between disreputable and respectable sins...

Commemoration of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus, 1556 Sin is not only manifested in certain acts that are forbidden by divine command. Sin also appears in attitudes and dispositions and feelings. Lust and hate are sins as well as adultery and murder. And, in the traditional Christian view, despair and chronic boredom -- unaccompanied by any vicious act -- are serious sins. They are expressions of man's separation from God, as the ultimate good, meaning, and end of human existence.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Passion is the evil in adultery. If a man has no opportunity of living with another man's wife, but if it is obvious for some reason that he would like to do so, and would do so if he could, he is no less guilty than if he was caught in the act.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son.

I accept the Old Testament as more of an action movie: blood, car chases, evacuations, a lot of special effects, seas dividing, mass murder, adultery. The children of God are running amok, wayward. Maybe that's why they're so relatable.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is impossible for me to estimate how many of my early impressions of the world, correct and the opposite, came to me through newspapers.

Let us be honest with each other. The threat to marriage is not the gays.

Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, if it has its own way it will go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glance would be adultery if it could, every thought of unbelief would be atheism if allowed to develop. Every rise of lust, if it has its way reaches the height of villainy; it is like the grave that is never satisfied. The deceitfulness of sin is seen in that it is modest in its first proposals but when it prevails it hardens men’s hearts, and brings More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
