[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.]

Quotes About Grin And Bear It

"The disobedience if Eve in the Genesis story has been used to justify womens inequality and suffering in many Christian traditions. Thus, what is understood as womens complicity in evil leads much traditional theological reflection on suffering to offer the "consequent admonition to grin and bear it because such is the deserved place of women." Similarly, when Jesus is seen as a divine co-sufferer, the potentially liberating narratives of Jesus as a revolutionary leader who takes the side of the poor and dispossessed can be ignored in favor of religious beliefs more interested in Jesus as a stoic victim. Christs suffering is inverted and used to justify womens continued suffering in systems of injustice by framing it as redemptive." - Author: Melissa V. Harris Perry

Quotes About Paul Of Tarsus

"So far as we know, Jesus did not write anything, nor did anyone who had personal knowledge of him. There is no archaeological evidence of his existence. There are no contemporaneous accounts of his life or death: no eyewitness accounts, nor any other kind of first-hand record. All the accounts of Jesus come from decades or centuries later; the gospels themselves all come from later times, though they may contain earlier sources or oral traditions. The earliest writings that survive are the letters of Paul of Tarsus, written 20-30 years after the dates given for Jesuss death. Paul was not a companion of Jesus, nor does he ever claim to have seen Jesus before his death." - Author: L. Michael White

Quotes About Living While Young

"The voice came from the night all around him, in his head and out of it."What do you want? it repeated.He wondered if he dared to turn and look, realised he did not.Well? You come here every night, in a place where the living are not welcome. I have seen you.Why?I wanted to meet you, he said, without looking around. I want to live for ever. His voice crackedas he said it.He had stepped over the precipice. There was no going back. In his imagination, he could alreadyfeel the prick of needle-sharp fangs in his neck, a sharp prelude to eternal life.The sound began. It was low and sad, like the rushing of an underground river. It took him severallong seconds to recognise it as laughter.This is not life, said the voice.It said nothing more, and after a while the young man knew he was alone in the graveyard." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Forfeiture

"I am now 33 years old, and it feels like much time has passed and is passing faster and faster every day. Day to day I have to make all sorts of choices about what is good and important and fun, and then I have to live with the forfeiture of all the other options those choices foreclose. And Im starting to see how as time gains momentum my choices will narrow and their foreclosures multiply exponentially until I arrive at some point on some branch of all lifes sumptuous branching complexity at which I am finally locked in and stuck on one path and time speeds me through stages of stasis and atrophy and decay until I go down for the third time, all struggle for naught, drowned by time. It is dreadful. But since its my own choices thatll lock me in, it seems unavoidable--if I want to be any kind of grownup, I have to make choices and regret foreclosures and try to live with them." - Author: David Foster Wallace

Quotes About Good Generals

"Song of myselfWith music strong I come, with my cornets and my drums, I play not marches for accepted victors only, I play marches for conquerd and slain persons. Have you heard that it was good to gain the day? I also say it is good to fall, battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won. I beat and pound for the dead, I blow through my embouchures my loudest and gayest for them. Vivas to those who have faild! And to those whose war-vessels sank in the sea! And to those themselves who sank in the sea! And to all generals that lost engagements, and all overcome heroes! And the numberless unknown heroes equal to the greatest heroes known!" - Author: Walt Whitman
