Intervention only works when the people concerned seem to be keen for peace.
~ Nelson Mandela

Bold prayers honor God, and God honors bold prayers. God isn't offended by your biggest dreams or boldest prayers-he is offended by Anything Less. If your prayers aren't impossible to You, they are insulting to God- why? Because they don't require divine intervention. But ask God to part the Red Sea or make the sun stand still or float an iron axhead and God is moved to Omnipotent action
~ Mark Batterson

Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.
~ Mark Batterson

Prayer gives you opportunity to praise God and to request His divine intervention in your life and/or the lives of others. Prayer allows you to glorify His Name and also provides an avenue for you to be filled ~ with joy.
~ John C. Broger

I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at commensurate speed.
~ Maya Angelou

Evolutionary theory, properly understood, does not conflict with the idea that God occasionally intervenes in nature - for example, by once or twice causing a beneficial mutation to occur. Biologists have not detected any such interventions despite the data and theory they have assembled about mutation. However, I think it is a mistake to expect biological experiments to be able to detect such one-off acts of divine intervention, especially if those acts occurred in the distant past. Science isn't in that line of work.
~ Elliott Sober

I don't know whether our watching the play in these times was a coincidence or divine intervention but time and again, we were introspecting.
~ Sushma Swaraj

Concerted voices of heartfelt petitions in Arabic all pleading for divine intervention are abruptly silenced as the drone ensures fatalities by injecting a final stab in each of their skulls.
~ C. J. Anderson

In the dead world of the Western mind all that is seen are shades of gray. There's a cloud over every experience. There's no possibility of divine incarnation, divine intervention, let alone that one's self in every moment is divine.
~ Frederick Lenz

There is a tendency to see divine intervention in things that happen in the normal course of miracles.
~ Robert Breault

From the Scriptures we find basic truths that may serve as the foundation of our teaching of history. The first basic truth is that God is in control of history. God's control may take the form of caring, governing, protecting, sustaining, and preserving. He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention
~ D. A. Fisher

Talk about divine intervention. I can't even tell you how blessed I feel.
~ Khandi Alexander

The best motivating factor of all, however, is divine intervention, or what I like to call The Magic of Grace.
~ Cheryl Richardson

The belief that rational and quantifiable disciplines such as science can be used to perfect human society is no less absurd than a belief in magic, angels, and divine intervention.
~ Chris Hedges

To do what you imply would require nothing short of divine intervention. You must change man, not systems.
~ Rafael Sabatini

I am a big believer in early intervention.
~ Temple Grandin

When I think of the library of Alexandria and of the fact that, although it burnt down, people continue to sort the letters of the alphabet according to that tradition, then that makes certain expressions of modernity, even of interventions on the textual level, possible.
~ Alexander Kluge

Everything intercepts us from ourselves.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Interventions are really emotionally exhausting and I would never ever want to have one. In the same way, I would never want to have a surprise birthday party. That would be horrible.
~ Margaret Cho

Whenever people can access deities directly without the intervention of a religious hierarchy, they don't need to have hierarchy so much.
~ Barbara Ehrenreich

I had given up magic, because it had reached a state of perfection. I felt that I was able to transform men into animals. I did not make use of this capability, because I believed I could not justify an intervention of this kind in the life of another person.
~ Wolfgang Hildesheimer

But their intervention makes our acts to serve ever less merely the immediate claims of our instincts.
~ Albert Einstein

Without intervention today, the cost of care for adults with autism will be significantly greater and the burden will no longer lie with the parents, but on our entire society.
~ Jenny McCarthy

The Big Bang, which today we hold to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the intervention of the divine creator but, rather, requires it.
~ Pope Francis

Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.
~ Mark Batterson

The body moves naturally, automatically, without any personal intervention or awareness. If we think too much, our actions become slow and hesitant.
~ Taisen Deshimaru

True understanding is possible only when we are fully conscious of our thought, not as an operative observer on this thought, but completely and without the intervention of a choice.
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

Art is manipulation without intervention.
~ Louise Bourgeois

I'd learned enough from life's experiences to understand that destiny's interventions can sometimes be read as invitation for us to address and even surmount our biggest fears. It doesn't take a great genius to recognize that when you are pushed by circumstance to do the one thing you have always most specifically loathed and feared, this can be, at the very least, an interesting growth opportunity.
~ Elizabeth Gilbert

We are to make a plan for the day, pray over that plan, and then proceed with that plan. When we are willing to regard the unexpected as God's intervention, we can flex with the new plan, recognizing it as God's plan.
~ Elizabeth George

A conflict arises when a religious community insists on the absolute truthfulness of all statements recorded in the Bible. This means an intervention on the part of religion into the sphere of science; this is where the struggle of the Church against doctrines of Galileo and Darwin belongs.
~ Albert Einstein

On humanitarian intervention in general, I guess my view is not unlike the view that was attributed to Gandhi, accurately or not, when he was supposedly asked what he thought about western civilization. He is supposed to have said that he thought it would be a good idea. Similarly, humanitarian intervention would be a good idea, in principle.
~ Noam Chomsky

If the positive innovations connect exponentially before the massive breakdowns reinforce one another, the system can re-pattern itself to a higher order of consciousness and freedom without the predicted economic, environmental, and social collapse...If the system could go either way, a slight intervention to assist the convergence of the positive can tip the scales of evolution in favor of the enhancement of life on Earth.
~ Barbara Marx Hubbard

Nor let a god come in, unless the difficulty be worthy of such an intervention.
[Lat., Nec deus intersit nisi dignus vindice nodus.]
~ Horace

Nothing is so unpredictable as a throw of the dice, and yet every man who plays often will at some time or other make a Venus-cast: now and then he indeed will make it twice and even thrice in succession. Are we going to be so feebleminded then as to aver that such a thing happened by the personal intervention of ~ Venus rather than by pure luck?
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Intuition is a combination of insight and imagination that was once attributed to spiritual communication. Mathematicians call it 'fuzzy logic,' drawing conclusions from vague or subjective input. The mind becomes aware without the direct intervention of reasoning. Once you can imagine something you can begin the process of creating it. Executives use intuition to make many product, investment, and hiring decisions, even if they deny it. Success in business may depend on an accurate gut.
~ Jennifer James

In the search for meaning we must not forget that the gods (or God, for that matter) are a concept of the human mind; they are the creatures of man, not vice versa. They are needed and invented to give meaning and purpose to the struggle that is life on Earth, to explain strange and irregular phenomena of nature, haphazard events and, above all, irrational human conduct. They exist to bear the burden of all things that cannot be comprehended except by supernatural intervention or design.
~ Barbara Tuchman

Simple intervention - the time spent with a patient - is a very powerful ingredient of the patient-doctor contract. The evidence is against the traditions such as surgery for back pain being true - the evidence says it doesn't work.
~ Marni Jackson

I think that any time anybody gets rid of oppression, intervention, exploitation, cruelty - that's positive.
~ Assata Shakur

The highest truth needs no communicating, for it is by its very nature self-propelling. It radiates its influence silently as the rose its fragrance without the intervention of a medium.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

If anyone does not believe that Holy Mary is the Mother of God, he is severed from the Godhead. If anyone should assert that He passed through the Virgin as through a channel, and was not at once divinely and humanly formed in her (divinely, because without the intervention of a man; humanly, because in accordance with the laws of gestation), he is in like manner godless.
~ Gregory of Nazianzus

What we must eliminate are systems of representation that carry with them the authority which has become repressive because it doesn't permit or make room for interventions on the part of those represented.
~ Edward Said

Photography has a relation to intervention, but photographing is not the same as an intervening.
~ Judith Butler

I think it's appropriate for the international community in situations like this to intervene [in Kosovo]. I am in favor of an intervention. On some level, you have to say that at least somebody [Clinton] is doing something.
~ Mike Farrell

We need a pharmacological intervention on anti-social behavior or we are not going to get hold of our dilemma.
~ Terence McKenna

The overriding problems are brought on by the existence of the ego, a maladaptive behavioral complex in the psyche that gets going like a tumor. If it's not treated - if there's not pharmacological intervention - it becomes the dominant constellation of the personality..
~ Terence McKenna

Every therapeutic intervention is an act of social transformation.
~ Harville Hendrix

Today...the bluebirds, old and young, have revisited their box, as if they would fain repeat the summer without intervention of winter, if Nature would let them.
