G Edward Griffin Quotes

"PROPER ROLE OF THE STATE
     I believe that the proper role of the state is negative, not positive; defensive, not aggressive. It is to protect, not to provide; for if the state is granted the power to provide for some, it must also be able to take from others, and that always leads to legalized plunder and loss of freedom. If the state can give us everything we want, it also must be powerful enough to take from us everything we have. Therefore, the proper function of the state is to protect the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, nothing more. That state is best which governs least."

Quotes About Looking Good And Feeling Good

"I didnt know why something that started off feeling so good had to wind up feeling so bad. Love was a big word and it covered a lot of territory. You could spend your whole life chasing after it and wind up with nothing, be an old bitter guy with long nose hair and ear hair and no teeth, hanging out in bars, looking for somebody your age, but the chances of success went down then. After a while you got too many strikes against you." - Author: Larry Brown

Quotes About Vibing With Someone

"Overhead the sky was melting, the cracked cream color rubbing off in cogs of brine.The fields far ahead of me in endless pudding, studded here and there with what had been: homes and houses, hair and heirlooms, habits, hallways, hauntings, hope." - Author: Blake Butler

Quotes About Flowery Words

"To SolitudeO solitude! if I must with thee dwell,Let it not be among the jumbled heapOf murky buildings; climb with me the steep,—Natures observatory—whence the dell,Its flowery slopes, its rivers crystal swell,May seem a span; let me thy vigils keepMongst boughs pavilliond, where the deers swift leapStartles the wild bee from the fox-glove bell.But though Ill gladly trace these scenes with thee,Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,Whose words are images of thoughts refind,Is my souls pleasure; and it sure must beAlmost the highest bliss of human-kind,When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee." - Author: John Keats

Quotes About Long Lived Life

"Her husband once said that he believed some sort of mathematical equation could be applied to life - since the longer you lived, the greater its seeming velocity. She always attributed this to familiarity. If you kept the same habits - and if you lived in the same place, worked in the same place - then you no longer spent a lot of time noticing. Noticing things - and trying to make sense of them - is what makes time remarkable. Otherwise, life blurs by, as it does now, so that she has difficulty keeping track of time at all, one day evaporating into the next." - Author: Benjamin Percy

Quotes About Sacrifices In Life

"I understood from a very young age that school was important and that my parents were making great sacrifices for me. Every morning I saw my father get up and go to a job that he didnt really like. They came to France for the same reasons all immigrants move to another country - so their kids could have a better way of life." - Author: Omar Sy

Quotes About Salta

"Una de las cosas que me gusta de los libros es que son capaces de definir y condensar ciertas porciones de la vida de un personaje en capítulos. Es interesante, porque no se puede hacer eso en la vida real. No se puede terminar un capítulo y entonces saltar las cosas que no quieres vivir, sólo para abrir otro capítulo que se adapte mejor a tu estado de ánimo. La vida no puede dividirse en capítulos... solamente minutos. Los acontecimientos de tu vida están ligados a un minuto después de otro sin ningún tipo de lapso de tiempo o páginas en blanco o saltos de capítulos, porque no importa lo que pase, la vida sigue adelante y las palabras siguen fluyendo y las verdades son escupidas te guste o no, y nunca la vida te permitirá hacer una pausa y recuperar el jodido aliento." - Author: Colleen Hoover

Quotes About Blessed Week

"Finally, he reached his street. It was quiet, blessedly so, and the only sound was his own groan as he lifted his foot to the first stone step at the entrance to Winstead House. The only sound, that was, until someone whispered his name.He froze. "Anne?"A figure stepped out of the shadows, trembling in the night. "Daniel," she said again, and if she said anything more, he did not hear it. He was down the stairs in an instant, and she was in his arms, and for the first time in nearly a week, the world felt steady on its axis." - Author: Julia Quinn

Quotes About Rabid

"That was how it was, sometimes. You put yourself in front of the thing and waited for whatever was going to happen and that was all. It scared you and it didnt matter. You stood and faced it. There was no outwitting anything. When Almondine had been playful, she had been playful in the face of that knowledge, as defiant as before the rabid thing. Sometimes you looked the thing in the eye and it turned away. Sometimes it didnt." - Author: David Wroblewski
