I told her that as a practical matter I can't afford to be like that any more; because naturally, based on numbers alone, it gets a person into trouble; though all this is no fault of hers, of course. Yet despite all precautions, it turns out that sure enough she is one of those that can't but help but make you so, and it's only fair to give credit where credit's due.
We could not help but include, and in case you missed it in the after-menu of the last video -- the Queen of Soul doing the very same number. Now here's excellent proof (once again) of how truly fabulous an already very well known and familiar performer actually is when she has just the right song to sing.
["Aretha Franklin - Don't Play That Song (You Lied) - Live on Cliff Richard Show (hiFi)"]
Here's a track that would make a good addition to our current "SRO" collection, Italian pop sensation Adriano Celentano singing "Don't Play That Song":
["Adriano Celentano - don't play that song."]
What is more healthy, dirtiness or cleanliness? All right, now since you know the answer to that, now ask which is more dirty -- Good or Evil?
To My Enemies
If Hell, damnation, and the grave are your goal and aim, that's your free right and choice. All I ask is that you leave me out of it.
To My Friends
Think badly of me if you like, would, or it makes you feel better; all I ask of you is that if you really are my friend that you ever strive bravely and undaunted in pursuit of peace, justice, (honest) truth, and freedom.
Here's a very beautiful rendition -- allowing for and if you can tolerate sounds of a bus-boy in the background -- of Al Stewart's "Palace of Versailles" sung by Korean folk artist, Mooneerok; who has that rare and uncanny serenity of voice we normally would associate with someone like Art Garfunkel (who first comes to mind.)
A: "Yes, I understand all that. But why do you want me to go kill a seagull?"
B: "Just do as you're told, and don't ask any more questions."
One way I put it to him was like this. I would much more rather I had the ability to play the guitar like Jeff Beck then possess all the genius, wiles, power, importance, and riches of being Satan.
As much as I regret to say so (and thus reveal my shame and mortification as a result), God beat me at Scrabble.
Sometimes if you are sufficiently shook up by something you cannot or could not feel fear even if you wanted to.
It's not a question of whether the grounds of his jealousy or envy are justified; rather it is a question of how he invokes, applies, or deals with that jealousy, etc.
Some more from before -- Oh, yes, I'm sure God does love the Holy of Holies. But that has nothing whatsoever to do with you running this torture operation. You are not in reality for the simple reason that you listen to and takes counsel from goblins, spooks, demons and vampires, and it is for this reason, and this reason alone, that they have made you into such a big shot. You know, you only hurt yourself when you act like a fool. I can't make or cause you to suffer, only you can do that. Because if between minding your own business and using torture, you can't but choose torture over acting like a half normal, decent person then you are obviously and clearly at fault for your own suffering (which must be considerable.)
I did not read the book because I saw the movie, but the fault wasn't the movie's but mine. If the ensnarer somehow uses something like a movie to keep me from properly appreciating the book, then all I can do is know about and remind myself of the fact -- not unlike like keeping a high altitude (say, in an aircraft); you cannot maintain the thing unless you consciously attend to it.
Over-lording Spirit people are God's one and only mistake for which, evidently, no expense is spared, be the cost in tragedy and utmost suffering, to indulge and appease as the world's biggest cheaters, hypocrites (i.e. such who outrageously contradict themselves), and cry babies. (Yes, I am being a bit facetious for rhetorical purposes, yet the assertion is not without its basis in truth.)
"Any or all damage me or my people do, charge it to Jesus; he said he'd pay for it."
