"Columbus gave Europe a New World; [Alexander von] Humboldt made it known in its physical, material, intellectual, and moral aspects."

Michael Sandel Quotes

"Democracy does not require perfect equality, but it does require that citizens share a common life. What matters is that people of different backgrounds and social positions encounter one another, and bump up against one another, in the course of ordinary life."

Lori McPherson Quotes

"His love is like an unquenchable fire and He refreshes with living waters. I thirst daily and go to the well to drink and be consumed"

Smedley Butler Quotes

"War is a racket. It always has been... A few profit - and the many pay. But there is a way to stop it. You cant end it by disarmament conferences. You cant eliminate it by peace parleys at Geneva. Well-meaning but impractical groups cant wipe it out by resolutions. It can be smashed effectively only by taking the profit out of war."

Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton Quotes

"We may live without poetry, music, and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civilized man cannot live without cooks. He may live without books,—what is knowledge but grieving? 20He may live without hope,—what is hope but deceiving? He may live without love,—what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining?"

Quotes About Munger

"Buffetts methodology was straightforward, and in that sense simple. It was not simple in the sense of being easy to execute. Valuing companies such as Coca-Cola took a wisdom forged by years of experience; even then, there was a highly subjective element. A Berkshire stockholder once complained that there were no more franchises like Coca-Cola left. Munger tartly rebuked him. Why should it be easy to do something that, if done well two or three times, will make your family rich for life?" - Author: Roger Lowenstein

Quotes About Emersonian

"{McCabe on the influential scientist Luther Burbank}His magnificent work, which added an incalculable sum to the wealth of America and left him a comparatively poor man, is well known. His own simple account of his discoveries runs to 12 volumes and is incomplete. I was one of the few men whom he admitted to his house in Santa Rosa in the few months before he died and I found him advanced even beyond the vague Emersonian theism of his earlier years. He agreed to see me, he said, though he was tired and ill, because of his admiration of my work as a rationalist. He had just raised a storm by a public declaration that he did not believe in a future life, and his biographer Wilbur Hale repeats this." - Author: Luther Burbank

Quotes About Getting Money

"The art of meditation is a way of getting into touch with reality, and the reason for it is that most civilized people are out of touch with reality because they confuse the world as it with the world as they think about it and talk about it and describe it. For on the one hand there is the real world and on the other there is a whole system of symbols about that world which we have in our minds. These are very very useful symbols, all civilization depends on them, but like all good things they have their disadvantages, and the principle disadvantage of symbols is that we confuse them with reality, just as we confuse money with actual wealth." - Author: Alan Wilson Watts

Quotes About Hearing And Listening

"He was drowned, he used to say, and lying on a cliff with gulls screaming over him. He would look over the edge of the sofa down into the sea. Or he was hearing music… But "Lovely!" he used to cry and the tears would run down his cheeks, which was to her the most dreadful thing of all, to see a man like Septimus, who had fought, who was brave, crying. And he would lie listening until suddenly he would cry that he was falling down, down into the flames!" - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Bubbly Girl

"There is a general notion that playing a bubbly girl is undemanding and less challenging. But thats not the case. You need oodles of energy to bring out the spirit of a lively character. Besides, no two bubbly girls are the same. Every character I have played is different from the other. I love being chosen for such lively roles." - Author: Genelia DSouza

Quotes About Rehearsing

"After thirty minutes of learning and rehearsing this routine, Ive decided to never show my aforementioned self-taught moves to the public. Todays dance style seems to involve a dash of bump and a cup of grind, with a heavy dose of attitude...ingredients I havent incorporated before. Not having cable television can really keep a girl out of the loop." - Author: Alecia Whitaker

Quotes About Open Borders

"I might be tempted to make to Christendom a proposal different from that of the Bible society. Let us collect all the New Testaments we have, let us bring them out to an open square or up to the summit of a mountain, and while we all kneel let one man speak to God thus: Take this book back again; we men, such as we now are, are not fit to go in for this sort of thing, it only makes us unhappy, This is my proposal, that like those inhabitants in Gerasa we beseech Christ to depart from our borders. This would be an honest and human way of talking -- rather different from the disgusting hypocritical priestly fudge..." - Author: Søren Kierkegaard
