[But Assuming The Same Premises, To Wit, That All Men Are Equal By The Law Of Nature And Of Nations, The Right Of Property In Slaves Falls To The Ground; For One Who Is Equal To Another Cannot Be The Owner Or Property Of That Other.]

"The purpose of any ceremony is to build stronger relationship or bridge the distance between our cosmos and us. The research that we do as Indigenous people is a ceremony that allows us a raised level of consciousness and insight into our world. Through going forward together with open minds and good hearts we have uncovered the nature of this ceremony"

Mark Mossa Quotes

"What our closest friends do for us is to teach us true selflessness. We learn that while it might be safer for them if we keep them out, true friendship means letting them in. We cannot decide for them what they are willing to suffer with us and for us. While we certainly dont want to see our friends suffer, friendship isnt about protecting each other from pain so much as it is about helping each other to become what God has called us to be."

Wendy Steiner Quotes

"In the course of aesthetic experience, the perceiver may be overwhelmed by this mere object, overcome with emotion, altered to the very roots of his being.[...] The experience of beauty involves an exchange of power, and as such, it is often disorienting, a mix of humility and exaltation, subjugation and liberation, awe and mystified pleasure.[...] Many people, fearing a pleasure they cannot control, have vilified beauty as a siren or a whore. Since at one time or another though, everyone answers to her call, it would be well if we could recognize the meaning of our succumbing as a valuable response, an opportunity for self-revelation rather than defeat.[...] It entails a flexibility and empathy toward Others in general and the capacity to see ourselves as both active and passive without fearing that we will be diminished in the process."

Sir Roger Bannister Quotes

"However ordinary each of us may seem, we are all in some way special, and can do things that are extraordinary, perhaps until then…even thought impossible."

Vanora Bennett Quotes

"Alice knows those stories. The routiers and condottieri of the Free Companies, who fight the wars of whichever prince will pay their fees, and amuse themselves in between times, are said to commit every kind of crime: from eating meat in Lent to slitting open pregnant women to kill their unborn and unbaptised children. The countryside of the southern lands is supposed to be full of their victims: a sea of vagabonds - priests without parishes; destitute peasants; artisans looking for work. ‘So you, Alice says, ‘were one of the famous sons of iniquity… The Pope calls them that when they rob churches. But the Pope also uses them regularly. Alice knows she sounds a little breathless. She cant altogether keep the admiration out of her voice. If shed been a man, she thinks, she might have done exactly the same thing as Wat, to better herself fast."

Quotes About Tourist Spots

"The indigenous peoples of the great tourist spots seem to lose their souls. All cultural, religious, and political efforts and ideals are crippled since the culture is engaged only in luring ever more tourists. It is not the contact with an essentially foreign population that corrupts the inhabitants of the great foreign resorts. It is the contact with great masses of people who are seeking fir the moment only well-being and not salvation that weakens and devalues the indigenous population." - Author: Adolf Guggenbühl Craig

Quotes About Impartation

"Dont pray that God would teach you how to love like He loves; pray that He would fill you with Himself and that He would love in and through you. Dont pray that He would teach you to have joy; pray that the living God full of joy would enter into you. Dont pray that He would teach you how to be peaceful; ask for the God of peace, the Prince of peace to infill you. Because if you try to imitate in your own strength, you will be a miserable replica. But if you allow the impartation of Jesus Christ to overtake you, suddenly it all works because it is Him imitating Himself, and He is very good at being God." - Author: Eric Ludy

Quotes About Strange Things Happening

"New York will always seem more real than anything Britain has to offer. It is strange that, although the majority of British people have never seen a skate-boarding body-popper, an exploding fire-hydrant, or anybody dunk a doughnut, these things seem infinitely more immediate and happening images than that jar of Horlicks which has stood in the cupboard for 40 years" - Author: Ben Elton

Quotes About Raio

"Prendi la posizione più comoda: seduto, sdraiato, raggomitolato, coricato. Coricato sulla schiena, su un fianco, sulla pancia. In poltrona, sul divano, sulla sedia a dondolo, sulla sedia a sdraio, sul pouf. Sullamaca, se hai unamaca. Sul letto, naturalmente, o dentro il letto. Puoi anche metterti a testa in giù, in posizione yoga, col libro capovolto, si capisce." - Author: Italo Calvino

Quotes About Faith In God And Hope

"The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in Gods sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at the very same time. This creates a radical new dynamic for personal growth. It means that the more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing Gods grace appears to you. But on the other hand, the more aware you are of Gods grace and acceptance in Christ, the more able you are to drop your denials and self-defenses and admit the true dimensions and character of your sin." - Author: Timothy Keller
