[But Poets Were Not Considered Dangerous And They Were Advised To Exercise Self-censorship. At Most, Poets Were Requested Not To Write At All. I Took Advantage Of This Negative Liberty.]

Joseph Joubert Quotes

"Never write anything that does not give you great pleasure. Emotion is easily transferred from the writer to the reader."

Max Frei Quotes

"People are made in such a way that if something inexplicable happens to them, they write it off to an overheated imagination."

Deirdre McCloskey Quotes

"One suspects that the conservatives of left and right dont much like the "mass" and its badly informed preferences. Let us take care of you, they cry. Let tradition celebrated by wise elders, or planning implemented by wise experts, guide you, oh you sadly misled mass. (The ruling lords and the monopolists view the clerisys conservative theorizing with delight, resting assured that the elders and the planners will inadvertently shield their rents.)"

Keysi Quotes

"Silence can symbolize many things; fear, anger, sadness, or shame. But one thing that silence cannot symbolize is happiness because silence is dark, silence is quiet, silence is everything happiness should not acquire."

LK Hill Quotes

"Life is a mystical and tragic thing. It is a journey often full of fear, when it ought to be full of hope. Its fascinating to look back on your life and feel as though most of it was a precursor to the rest of it; to what was always supposed to be."

Sarah Sutton Quotes

"I dont think I would have stayed for the second season if I hadnt been happy."

Tess Callahan Quotes

"You need to start doing whats uncomfortable for you, April. Because your idea of what feels right took a left turn somewhere."

Kevin Kelly Quotes

"‎What color is a chameleon placed on a mirror?...The chameleon responding to its own shifting image is an apt analog of the human world of fashion. Taken as a whole, what are fads but the response of a hive mind to its own reflection?In a 21st-century society wired into instantaneous networks, marketing is the mirror; the collective consumer is the chameleon."

George Cooke Quotes

"Fear is and has always been dead. Its how we picture it that makes fear come to life."

Quotes About Bunyan

"The inquiry has often been made of us in the course of our history, why we do not contradict such and such statements, "Why do you not confute this or that?" "Why do you not enlighten the people in regard to certain statements which are urged against you, and disabuse the public mind?" . . . As for offering refutations to charges made against us, it would be impossible to keep pace with the thousands of freshly invented falsehoods that the powers spiritual and the powers temporal would produce to feed the credulity of the ignorant masses. Bunyan says that it requires a legion of devils to watch one Christian; it would require a legion of refutations to keep pace with one infernal liar, therefore we say, "lie on, falsify every thing you want to falsify, and say what you please; there is a God in Israel, and if you have not yet learned it, you will learn it."[JD10:105, 109]" - Author: Brigham Young

Quotes About Process Management

"During the worst time of Jesses cycle, the "worry" region of her brain was overactive, which caused her to become fixated on things, and the judgment and impulse control part of her brain was underactive. The alcohol likely further dropped her ability to control her behavior. Thats why she was so distraught with her husband and why the idea of grabbing the knife wasnt properly processed and filtered out. During the best time of her cycle, Jesses brain was much more balanced. The answer to this womans problem was not just anger-management therapy. It was to get her hormonal fluctuations under control. During the days prior to starting your period, estrogen and progesterone levels hit rock bottom. On scans, I see the worry center of the brain (the anterior cingulate gyrus) start to fire up; as a result, women can get stuck on negative thoughts or give in to behaviors they think will make them feel better, such as reaching for wine or cookies." - Author: Daniel G. Amen

Quotes About Too Much Money

"I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education. If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone." - Author: Robert T. Kiyosaki

Quotes About The Magisterium

"The teaching authority of the magisterium had been seriously weakened through the obvious difficulties raised for such a concept of authority by the Great Schism, with the result that, in the absence of any magisterial guidance, theological opinions became confused with catholic dogma...Accompanying this erosion of the teaching authority of the church was an apparent disinclination (whether through unwillingness or inability) on the part of the magisterium to take decisive forcible action to suppress opinions of which it disapproved." - Author: Alister E. McGrath

Quotes About Beach With Friends

"And here I was at the end of my trip, with everything just as fuzzy and unreal as the beginning. It was easier for me to see myself in Ricks lens, riding down to the beach in that cliched sunset, just as it was easier for me to stand with my friends and wave goodbye to the loopy woman with the camels, the itching smell of the dust around us, and in our eyes the feat that we had left so much unsaid. There was an unpronounceable joy and an aching sadness to it. It had all happened too suddenly. I didnt believe this was the end at all. There must be some mistake. Someone had just robbed me of a couple of month in there somewhere. There was not so much an anticlimactic quality about the arrival at the ocean, as the overwhelming feeling that I had somehow misplaced the penultimate scene." - Author: Robyn Davidson
