Quotes About Observance

"Most morality, thought Mma Ramotswe, was about doing the right thing because it had been identified as such by a long process of acceptance and observance. You simply could not create your own morality because your experience would never be enough to do so. What gives you the right to say that you know better than your ancestors? Morality is for everybody and this means that the views of more than one person are needed to create it. That was what made modern morality, with its emphasis on individuals and the working out of an individual person, so weak. If you gave people the chance to work out their morality, then they would work out the version which was easiest for them and which allowed them to do what suited them for as much of the time as possible. That, in Mma Ramotswes view, was simple selfishness, whatever grand name one gave it." - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Spectacles

"The facts of nature are what they are, but we can only view them through the spectacles of our mind. Our mind works largely by metaphor and comparison, not always (or often) by relentless logic. When we are caught in conceptual traps, the best exit is often a change in metaphor — not because the new guideline will be truer to nature (for neither the old nor the new metaphor lies "out there" in the woods), but because we need a shift to more fruitful perspectives, and metaphor is often the best agent of conceptual transition." - Author: Stephen Jay Gould

Quotes About Ternura

"Diciendo esto besó mi frente y me abrazó como si no quisiera soltarme nunca. Enterré mi cara en su pecho, mientras él inclinaba su cabeza hacia abajo para presionar su mejilla en lo alto de mi cabeza. Mi cuerpo temblaba a horrores, estaba nerviosa, emocionada, sentía frío y sólo deseaba sentir su calor. En ese momento y estando en sus brazos, el ocaso frente al mar me pareció el lugar más romántico del mundo y su ternura, había hecho desaparecer en mí el deseo y la pasión que me estaban quemando y que él mismo había despertado." - Author: Itxa Bustillo
