Quotes About Compulsory

"There is a latent fairy in all women, but look how carefully we have to secrete her in order to be taken seriously.

That much is compulsory." - Author: Dawn French

Quotes About Humor Life

"Those who find no humor in faith are probably those who find the church a refuge for their own black way of looking at life, although I think many of us find the church a refuge for a lot of our personality faults. Those of us, for example, who never learned to dance feel that the church is an ideal place for us if we can find a church that doesnt believe in dancing. Then we can get away with never having learned how to dance. You can carry this in all sorts of directions and see that the church is a refuge for what is really a flaw in your own makeup." - Author: Charles M. Schulz

Quotes About Efforts In Work

"The motives behind scientism are culturally significant. They have been mixed, as usual: genuine curiosity in search of truth; the rage for certainty and for unity; and the snobbish desire to earn the label scientist when that became a high social and intellectual rank. But these efforts, even though vain, have not been without harm, to the inventors and to the world at large. The "findings" have inspired policies affecting daily life that were enforced with the same absolute assurance as earlier ones based on religion. At the same time, the workers in the realm of intuition, the gifted finessers - artists, moralists, philosophers, historians, political theorists, and theologians - were either diverted from their proper task, while others were looking on them with disdain as dabblers in the suburbs of Truth." - Author: Jacques Barzun

Quotes About Being Able To Stand Alone

"Yes, being gay is just one of a thousand traits that make up my character, no more remarkable than my love of M&Ms or my ability to mess up a room in fifteen seconds flat or my failure to understand the appeal of Luke and Owen Wilson.But I believe that the desire to love and be loved is the strongest force on earth. And in that way, being gay affects every interaction in which straight people take part. Every human motive is in the end a yearning for companionship, and every act of every person on this planet is an effort not to be alone." - Author: Joel Derfner

Quotes About Computers

Dont think it recognized ‘Are you shitting me? as an option.""You know why that is?""Why is that, Dominic?" Tom had asked drolly, because he knew he was going to be told why."Because we dont live in a society anymore, Tom. We live in an economy. Were not citizens. Were customers. Thats what this governments done to us." - Author: Melina Marchetta
