"Training a dog, to me, is on a par with learning to dance with my wife or teaching my son to ski. These are fun things we do together. If anyone even talks about dominating the dog or hurting him or fighting him or punishing him, dont go there."

Ben Harper Quotes

"I wish you were here so we could walk and talk in the soft rain."

Jonathan Barnes Quotes

"The city defeated him. It refused to be bent into shape; it stayed a willful, sprawling, sinful place. It even told him as much. When he walked through the gutted wreck of old Saint Pauls, he tripped and fell over a piece of rubble -- a tombstone. When he got to his feet and dusted himself down he saw that it read, in Latin, Resurgam -- I Will Rise Again."

Quotes About Zivilisation

"Machtgier, Geltungsdrang und Habsucht", sagte Maurice Micklewhite, "sind die Götter der neuen Zeit. Die Menschen huldigen den Dingen. Sie verehren die Götter der Zivilisation. Sie verkaufen ihre Seelen an die dunklen Träume von Reichtum und Macht. Die alten Götter nannten Tugenden ihr Eigen. Mitgefühl. Warmherzigkeit. Toleranz. Doch glaubt niemand mehr an die alten Götter, die den Menschen einst gezeigt haben, was Menschsein bedeutet." - Author: Christoph Marzi

Quotes About Parasite Man

"And this is the ultimate lesson that our knowledge of the mode of transmission of typhus has taught us: Man carries on his skin a parasite, the louse. Civilization rids him of it. Should man regress, should he allow himself to resemble a primitive beast, the louse begins to multiply again and treats man as he deserves, as a brute beast.

My contribution to it makes me feel less unworthy of the honour which you have conferred upon me in his name." - Author: Alfred Nobel

Quotes About Violas Disguise

"The costumes help. They make it less real, disguise what it really is both for the actors and for the people wholl see it on the screen. Its like the people who read Anna Karenina, and because its in Russia they can say, Oh, thats not my pain theyre talking about. And Chris is tough. She goes from one thing to the next and doesnt worry about the past. When a cat sits mere purring on your lap, you know for a fact she isnt thinking about her former owner; shes thinking about her dinner. Thats Chris." - Author: Barbara Hambly

Quotes About Lifetime Happiness

"A lifetime spent in the study of the history of societies since the dawn of mankind presumably inclined him to skepticism and misgivings in regard to any great scheme, religious or political, that set out to create universal happiness in one fell swoop; what it was more likely to create, in his opinion, was universal misery; and his faith in heaven-sent saviors was hardly greater." - Author: François Maspero

Quotes About Reminiscing Childhood

"Nostalgia"How often we use this word reminiscing about the past - our childhood, school days, college days.. We feel nostalgic, we dwell in the memories of the past, we talk about how great those days were and how we would do anything to just go back in time and live those days again..Perhaps we fail to realize the fact that tomorrow we will say the same things about today, about the days we are living in now, about the emotions we are feeling now, about the time we are spending now..I love this day. I love this weird feeling I feel today. I belong here." - Author: Sanhita Baruah
