Quotes About Thorough

"Books whose topics I thoroughy depsise are accapteble because they often force the reader to think and to examine his own beliefs.

Quotes About Your Plastic Friends

"Seemed to me a phone was an impersonal instrument. If it felt like it, it let your personality go through its wires. If it didnt want to, it just drained your personality away until what slipped through at the other end was some cold fish of a voice, all steel, copper, plastic, no warmth, no reality. Its easy to say the wrong thing on telephones; the telephone changes your meaning on you. First thing you know, youve made an enemy. Then, of course, the telephones such a convenient thing; it just sits there and demands you call someone who doesnt want to be called. Friends were always calling, calling, calling me. Hell, I hadnt any time of my own." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Electric Cars

"While I dont think sociopaths have any sort of moral urge to do good things, I think they can and do act morally in the context of pursuing their own advantage. A good analogy would be a corporation. There are a lot of corporations that do things that you like, maybe even good things, like produce vaccines or electric cars, although the primary motivation is to make a profit. But just because you are trying to make a profit doesnt mean you cant do it by doing things you like, or that you are good at, or that comport with the way you see the world, or want the world to see you." - Author: M.E. Thomas

Quotes About Varys Littlefinger

"It was all too much. For a moment Eddard Stark wanted nothing so much as to return to Winterfell, to the clean simplicity of the north, where the enemies were winter and the wildlings beyond the Wall. "Surely Robert has other loyal friends," he protested. "His brothers, his—""—wife?" Varys finished, with a smile that cut. "His brothers hate the Lannisters, true enough, but hating the queen and loving the king are not quite the same thing, are they? Ser Barristan loves his honor, Grand Maester Pycelle loves his office, and Littlefinger loves Littlefinger." - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Deathbed

"Hope was what kept the world going. Hope that one day you would find somebody you could love and trust, hope that you would never lose them; hope that your team won the cup this year; hope that you found that dream job; hope that you would find the money to pay the mortgage. But most of all, hope that one day - whatever you have told yourself over that years - you would find that life really does go on beyond the deathbed." - Author: Phil Ford

Quotes About Abused Men

"Often men who have been emotionally neglected and abused as children by dominating mothers bond with assertive women, only to have their childhood feelings of being engulfed surface. While they could not smash their mommy and still receive love, they find that they can engage in intimate violence with partners who respond to their acting out by trying harder to connect with them emotionally, hoping that the love offered in the present will heal the wounds of the past. If only one party in the relationship is working to create love, to create the space of emotional connection, the dominator model remains in place and the relationship just becomes a site for continuous power struggle." - Author: Bell Hooks

Quotes About Inner Light

"Forgiveness flounders because I exclude the enemy from the community ofhumans even as I exclude myself from the community of sinners. But no onecan be in the presence of the God of the crucified Messiah for long withoutovercoming this double exclusion — without transposing the enemy from thesphere of the monstrous… into the sphere of shared humanity and herself fromthe sphere of proud innocence into the sphere of common sinfulness. Whenone knows [as the cross demonstrates] that the torturer will not eternallytriumph over the victim, one is free to rediscover that persons humanity andimitate Gods love for him. And when one knows [as the cross demonstrates]that Gods love is greater than all sin, one is free to see oneself in the light ofGods justice and so rediscover ones own sinfulness." - Author: Miroslav Volf
