Quotes About Votive

"Sailors tended to collect things on their travels. His bosun kept a small box stuffed with plant seeds from foreign ports, a whole future garden in potentia; his carpenter kept a bag of heathen votives and shrunken heads. Curiosities, both natural and artificial, were difficult for wandering seamen to resist. One of the hands on Sparhawks first snow had found a giant clamshell on Fiji and brought it aboard. When his shipmates quizzed him on what he planned to do with it, he said he hadnt the slightest idea—but he knew that he should regret leaving it behind." - Author: Donna Thorland

Quotes About Tackled

"The Special Operations Network was instigated to handle policing duties considered either too unusual or too specialized to be tackled by the regular force. There were thirty departments in all, starting at the more mundane Neighborly Disputes (SO-30) and going onto Literary Detectives (SO-27) and Art Crime (SO-24). Anything below SO-20 was restricted information, although it was common knowledge that the ChronoGuard was SO-12 and Antiterrorism SO-9. It is rumored that SO-1 was the department that polices the SpecOps themselves. Quite what the others do is anyones guess. What is known is that the individual operatives themselves are mostly ex-military or ex-police and slightly unbalanced. If you want to be a SpecOp, the saying goes, act kinda weird..." - Author: Jasper Fforde

Quotes About Pearl Diving

"Sophia sat in meditation on the riverbank when a student bent down to place two enormous pearls at her feet as a gift. She opened her eyes to see the pearls. She picked one up, but dropped it. It rolled down the hill upon which she was sitting and into the river. The student chased after it and looked all afternoon, diving, coming up for air, diving back down. "Sophia," he asked. "Could you show me where it went in? I cant find it." "Right there," she said throwing the other pearl in the river." - Author: David W. Jones

Quotes About Demanding An Apology

"Indeed, an astoundingly small proportion of arguments ‘for free speech and ‘against censorship or ‘banning are, in fact, about free speech, censorship or banning. It is depressing to have to point out, yet again, that there is a distinction between having the legal right to say something & having the moral right not to be held accountable for what you say. Being asked to apologise for saying something unconscionable is not the same as being stripped of the legal right to say it. Its really not very f-cking complicated. Cry "free speech" in such contexts, you are demanding the right to speak any bilge you wish without apology or fear of comeback. You are demanding not legal rights but an end to debate about and criticism of what you say. When did bigotry get so needy? This assertive & idiotic failure to understand that juridical permissibility backed up by the state is not the horizon of politics or morality is absurdly resilient." - Author: China Miéville

Quotes About Gratitude From The Bible

"The Bible frequently uses symmetries and inversions. By such comparisons (parallels and contrasts) the unique aspects of reality begin to emerge. Comparing two objects makes their differences increasingly apparent. Only then can we ask, "Why does this one have that, and the other does not?" For instance: The phrase, "and it was 6good" is present on all the days of creation—except the second day. Why? Because, "two" contains potential badness, to a Hebrew. We could not have discovered that insight, unless we contrasted Gods description of the creative days." - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Quotes About Jete

"Razvojni proces, do katerega prihaja na ravni posameznika, je isti proces, ki se odvija na ravni medsebojnih odnosov med posamezniki. Ko posameznik vnese energijo pralika duhovnega partnerstva, to ne vpliva na partnerstvo, ki ga oblikuje z drugim posameznikom, ampak tudi na skupnost, narod in cel svet. Vaša odločitev, da se se boste razvijali zavestno odgovorno z izbiro, prispeva ne samo k vaši lastni evoluciji, ampak tudik evoluciji vseh tistih vidikov človeštva, v katerih sodelujete. S svojimi odločitvami se ne razvijate samo vi, marveč celotno človeštvo." - Author: Gary Zukav

Quotes About Introversion
