[Certainly, I Am Writing As A 21st-century Woman, So I Am Much More Inclined To View Her As A Three-dimensional Woman. I Think We Keep Coming Up With This Stubborn Problem Of A Woman Being Judged By Her Appearance Rather Than Her Accomplishments. We Are Much More Inclined To Ask: Was Cleopatra Beautiful?]

"When you walk a life of honesty, you live a life of truth."

Jim Costa Quotes

"Should we attempt border security first, which I believe we should, we still need to face the fact that comprehensive reform is necessary. This must include a guest worker program and dealing with the 11 million people who are here today that are contributing to our economy."

Steve Hagen Quotes

"Rituals, ceremonies, prayers, and special outfits are inevitable, but they do not—they cannot—express the heart of what the Buddha taught. In fact, all too often, such things get in the way. They veil the simple wisdom of the Buddhas words, and distract us from it."

Joyce Dennys Quotes

"...‘All this suffering, I said, ‘and nothing but greed and violence to build on when the war is over.‘Have another soda-mint, said Charles.I had one. Then I said, ‘Why are we here? Thats what I dont understand. Why be here at all when it all has to be so beastly?‘I suppose we just came, like mould on cheese.‘Then why do we want to be happy? Mould on cheese doesnt want to be happy. ..."

Keith Stewart Quotes

"At this point in history, our society tends to elevate and reward the specialist...This concentrated focus has brought some benefits...It may also be a modern malady. Specialization, when taken too far and allowed to define who and what we are, becomes limiting. It robs us of our wholeness and our self-sufficiency. It misses the big picture and confines us to a narrow zoom. And it leaves us at the mercy of experts."

John Phillips Marquand Quotes

"When you smile, serious ideas get exhausted. At night the mountains keep quiet beside you, in the morning the sand goes with you down to the beach. When you do nice things to me all the heavy industries shut down."

Graham Hawkes Quotes

Quotes About Progress And Struggle

"Excerpt from "The Long Road from Perdition" for the day:"...Ive always been drawn to the ocean. It is here that I now feel peaceful and can lose my thoughts while immersed in the deafening sounds of waves crashing around me. The spray and mist of the oceans past seem to be a living, breathing yet wounded animal. The fury of the waves never settled and the spew of the foam touched all that dared to sit near it.There is no reason to flinch as the waves spray and crash against the shore. It is a natural progression I have learned to endure. However, it is the rescinding of the waves and fluid release of fury that I struggle to understand and coexist with peacefully. I hope one day to master it." - Author: J.R. Stone

Leighton

Quotes About District

"Helping teacher leaders come to understand their gifts is the first step in developing a specialty. Some leaders are great coaches and should focus on instructional leadership in a district or network where that is valued and supported. Great conceptual thinkers are good in startup mode but the daily grind of leading a school doesnt suit them. Other leaders thrive on the turnaround challenge. The dynamic blended future of education will allow more role specialization." - Author: Tom Vander Ark

Quotes About Transformations In Life

"I had a dream once that Boughton and I were down at the river looking around in the shallows for something or other - when we were boys it would have been tadpoles - and my grandfather stalked out of the trees in that furious way he had, scooped his hat full of water, and threw it, so as sheet of water came sailing toward us, billowing in the air like a veil, and fell down over us. Then he put his hat back on his head and stalked off into the trees again and left us standing there in that glistening river, amazed at ourselves and shining like the apostles. I mention his because it seems to me transformations just that abrupt do occur in this life, and they occur unsought and unawaited, and they beggar your hopes and your deserving. This came to my mind as I was reflecting on the day I first say your mother, that blessed, rainy Pentecost" - Author: Marilynne Robinson

Quotes About Fractured

"We learn that our spirit is not apart from us; it is a part of us. We gain awareness of the exact nature of what is right about us. Our fractured personalities come back together into an integrated whole. Integrity is the state of being fully integrated: Our actions, our thinking, our feelings, our ideals, and our values all match up. It takes a long time for a lot of us to get here, and longer still for us to feel like its real. More and more, we are able to bring our behavior into alignment with our values and beliefs rather than our feelings and reactions." - Author: Narcotics Anonymous
