Mark R Levin Quotes

"Where utopianism is advanced through gradualism rather than revolution, albeit steady and persistent as in democratic societies, it can deceive and disarm an unsuspecting population, which is largely content and passive. It is sold as reforming and improving the existing societys imperfections and weaknesses without imperiling its basic nature. Under these conditions, it is mostly ignored, dismissed, or tolerated by much of the citizenry and celebrated by some. Transformation is deemed innocuous, well-intentioned, and perhaps constructive but not a dangerous trespass on fundamental liberties."

Quotes About Slika

"Moja istraživanja trajala su čitavu godinu i najzad sam zaključio da samo reljef boje, znalački stavljen na platno, može da da oku pravi utisak. To je bio period koji su moji roditelji nazvali „kameno doba". Upotrebljavao sam kamenje da bih dobio, na primer, veoma blistav oblak. Lepio sam kamenje na platno, a zatim ga bojio. Jedan od mojih najvećih uspeha u ovom žanru je bio zalazak sunca sa kao krv crvenim oblacima. Nebo je bilo prepuno kamenja svih dimenzija, od kojih su neki bili veliki kao pesnica. Ova slika je dugo visila na zidu porodične trpezarije i sećam se da nas je često, u tišini posle večere, iznenađivao šum kamena koji bi, odlepivši se sa slike, padao na pod. Moja majka bi prestala da šije, a otac ju je uvek umirivao rečima: -Nije ništa, to je samo još jedan kamen pao sa neba našeg deteta." - Author: Salvador Dalí

Quotes About Liking An Old Friend

"Liking and Loves for the Sub-Human"Need-love cries to God from our poverty; Gift-love longs to serve, or even to suffer for, God; Appreciative love says: "We give thanks to thee for thy great glory." Need-love says of a woman "I cannot live without her"; Gift-love longs to give her happiness, comfort, protection – if possible, wealth; Appreciative love gazes and holds its breath and is silent, rejoices that such a wonder should exist even if not for him, will not be wholly dejected by losing her, would rather have it so than never to have seen her at all." p.17Friendship"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival." p.71" - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Competition In Love

"Ploutons eyes narrowed coldly, and he grinned because he counted the result of this conversation as a tremendous and absolute victory over his older brother. Abbadon never saw his younger brother as competition or even as an enemy, but Plouton hated his brother from the bottom of his heart. He was controlled and possessed by his own negative thoughts, that his father, King Apollyon, loved and trusted Abbadon more and that he disliked and rejected him. Plouton was jealous… very jealous.He raised his eyebrows and opened his silvery eyes as wide as they could go. Diabolic sparkles appeared in his eyes. He grinned again when he thought about the Titans, the cave, the iron chains, the vultures, and the unforgiving ocean at the Rock of Mukane. (Maradonia and the Gold of Ophir)" - Author: Gloria Tesch
