"The Earth is cylindrical, three times as wide as it is deep, and only the upper part is inhabited.

Quotes About Moods And Feelings

"Often Ive thought of myself as a state; a country or, at the very least, a city. It used to seem to me that the different ways I felt sometimes about ideas, courses of action and so on were like the differing political moods that countries go through. It has always seemed to me that people vote in a new government not because they actually agree with their politics but just because they want a change. Somehow they think that things will be better under the new lot. Well, people are stupid, but it all seems to have more to do with mood, caprice and atmosphere than carefully thought-out arguments. I can feel the same sort of thing going on in my head. Sometimes the thoughts and feelings I had didnt really agree with each other, so I decided I must be lots of different people inside my brain." - Author: Iain Banks

Quotes About Theological God

"Faith is first of all not attachment to a body of doctrines but a process of responding in obedience and trust to Gods Word. God has given us the possibility of hearing the Word, since it was spoken in the humanity of Jesus, which we share, and since it continues to be spoken through the Holy Spirit, which dwells in us. So also theology is first of all not the study of doctrines, but a process of reflection on this response in faith. The classic definition of theology, "faith seeking understanding", remains always valid. Faith seeks to understand the one to whom it responds. It also, thereby, seeks to understand itself, and the implications of being so called and so gifted to respond. … Who, then, is qualified for theology? The theological task is implied by the very life of faith itself. Every Christian is therefore called to do theology in this sense. Every Christian must seek an understanding of his or her response to God and the implications of that response for the rest of life." - Author: Luke Timothy Johnson

Quotes About Chatter

"What an immature, self-destructive, antiquated mischief is man! How obscure and gross his prancing and chattering on his little stage of evolution! How loathsome and beyond words boring all the thoughts and self-approval of his biological by-product! this half-formed, ill-conditioned body! this erratic, maladjusted mechanism of his soul: on one side the harmonious instincts and balanced responses of the animal, on the other the inflexible purpose of the engine, and between them man, equally alien from the being of Nature and the doing of the machine, the vile becoming!" - Author: Evelyn Waugh

Quotes About Famous Bliss

"In his early text, somewhat cumbersomely titled Towards a Critique of Hegels PHILOSOPHY OF RIGHT, the young Karl Marx famously noted that religion - the Christian faith, he meant primarily - is the opiate of the people. Its a drug, and its a downer or depressant insulating people from the pain of oppressive social realities and consoling them with a dream world of heavenly bliss. Alternatively, religion can function as an upper, a stimulant energizing people for the tasks at hand - a function of religion Marx failed to grasp." - Author: Miroslav Volf

Quotes About First Dates

"Yes, we could talk to you for days on end about all the bad first dates. Those are stories. Funny stories. Awkward stories. Stories we love to share, because by sharing them, we get something out of the hour or two we wasted on the wrong person. But thats all bad first dates are: short stories. Good first dates are more than short stories. They are first chapters. On a good first date, everything is springtime.And when a good first date becomes a relationship, the springtime lingers. Even after its over, there can be springtime." - Author: David Levithan

Quotes About Nerves Funny

"This will not do, he said to himself. If I go on like this I shall become a crazy fool. This must stop! I promised the doctor I would not take tea. Faith, he was pretty right! My nerves must have been getting in a queer state. Funny I did not notice it. I never felt better in my life. However it is all right now, and I shall not be such a fool again. Then he mixed himself a good stiff glass of brandy and water and resolutely sat down to his work." - Author: Bram Stoker
