And as religion fades so will freedom, for only where the spirit of God is, is there liberty."

Success depends on the ability to delay gratification, which is precisely what a consumerist culture undermines. At every stage, the emphasis is on the instant gratification of instinct.

But in fact they are invariably the beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extraordinary opportunities and cultural legacies that allow them to learn and work hard and make sense of the world in ways others cannot. It makes a difference where and when we grew up. The culture we belong to and the legacies passed down by our forebears shape the patterns of our achievements in ways we cannot begin to imagine. It's not enough to ask what successful people are like, in other words. It is only by asking where they are from that we can unravel the logic behind who succeeds and who doesn't."
Author: Malcolm Gladwell

Amen."
Author: Mark Twain
21. "Your culture is your limit; if you can't go beyond it, you will remain as a frog of your little lake!"
Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan

Author: R.C. Sproul
26. "I got a number of very thoughtful responses to the email I sent out last night, most of which I don't have time to respond to right now.

The resistance of Israeli Jewish people to the occupation and the enormous risk taken by those refusing to serve in the Israeli military offers an example, especially for those of us living in the United States, of how to behave when you discover that atrocities are being commited in your name. Thank you."
Author: Rachel Corrie

That's naive."Dorian's face suddenly hardened. "Equally naive is the thought that I would carelessly allow him to do anything to you or your children. How many times do I have to convince you of my protection? Do you really think that if he comes back here and attempts to harm one hair on your head, I'll allow it? Eugenie, if he so much as looks at you in a way I don't like, Rurik and his conspirators over there won't have a chance to act because I'll have long since run that bastard kitsune through myself." Dorian's tone astonishingly became light and easy again. "Now then. I wonder where we'll be making camp tonight."
Author: Richelle Mead

Author: Timothy Geithner
33. "We have become a more juvenile culture. We have become a childish "me, me, me" culture with fifteen-second attention spans.
