Dov Seidman Quotes

"In a rule-based society, we often choose efficiency over value, but, while rules-based governance systems may often serve well the values of fairness and representation, their seeming efficiency hides a deep and important flaw: We often rely on rules when they are not, in fact, the most efficient or effective solution to getting the result that we desire."

Quotes About Pestilence

"For why in your calamities do you complain of Christianity, unless because you desire to enjoy your luxurious license unrestrained, and to lead an abandoned and profligate life without the interruption of any uneasiness or disaster? For certainly your desire for peace, and prosperity, and plenty is not prompted by any purpose of using these blessings honestly, that is to say, with moderation, sobriety, temperance, and piety; for your purpose rather is to run riot in an endless variety of sottish pleasures, and thus to generate from your prosperity a moral pestilence which will prove a thousandfold more disastrous than the fiercest enemies." - Author: Augustine of Hippo

Quotes About Justified Violence

"The shortcomings of economics are not original error but uncorrected obsolescence. The obsolescence has occurred because what is convenient has become sacrosanct.

Something is to be attributed to the poor state of the door." - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith

Quotes About Conceited Woman

"[Dessies] shop was a unique institution in Salinas. It was a womans world. Here all the rules, and the fears that created the iron rules, went down. The door was closed to men. It was a sanctuary where women could be themselves- smelly, wanton, mystic, conceited, truthful, and interested. The whalebone corsets came off at Dessies, the sacred corsets that moulded and warped woman-flesh into goddess-flesh. At Dessies they were women who went to the toilet and overate and scratched and farted. And from this freedom came laughter, roars of laughter." - Author: John Steinbeck
