Robert Alley Quotes

"We are the better because of a constitution that goes beyond the spirit of the men who wrote it. Most often, in contrast, Christianity is restrictive, overly concerned about the "original intent" of its authors. But the Constitution contains the germ of an idea that allows expansion, going beyond what its founders thought. That is humanism. Humanism affirms, "There is something good even holy in the human spirit." However we define humanism, whatever we say about it, the important thing is that it makes us better."

"On the edge of a laughing teacupDid Kubla Kat decreeThe the corn fritter festooned with medalsShall make the brownies freeAnd so the walls turned to waterTo let our sorrows drownAs the chairs burned themselves for warmthSo they need not face the clownThen the spoons burst into songAnd all the forks they understoodAs I stared at my talking clawsBecasue this catnip is just that good"

Quotes About Lies And Truth

"Truths were carved from the identical wood as were lies--words--and so sank or floated with identical ease. But since truths were carved by the World, they rarely appeased Men and their innumerable vanities. Men hhad no taste for facts that did not ornament or enrich, and so they willfully--if not knowingly--panelled their lives with shining and intricate falsehoods." - Author: R. Scott Bakker

Quotes About Disloyal

"And there was a deeper, less visible effect of the Truman loyalty program. Seeing its consequences for certain individuals and fearing its intrusion on their own lives, many in the government sought protection by strongly asserting their anti-Communism. In the public action that ensued, policy was based not on reality but, instinctively or deliberately, on personal caution...Those who urged a militant and sometimes military anti-Communism were considered sound, trustworthy and personally safe; those who questioned such a course were politically unsafe, possible even slightly disloyal." - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith

Quotes About The Sun Going Down

"The thing is, all memory is fiction. You have to remember that. Of course, there are things that actually, certifiably happened, things you can pinpoint the day, the hour, the minute. When you think about it, though, those things, mostly seem to happen to other people. This story actually happened, and it happened pretty much the way I am going to tell it to you. Its a true story as much as six decades or telling and remembering can allow it to be true. Time changes things, and you dont always get everything right. You remember a little thing clear as a bell, the weather, say, or the splash of light on the rivers ripples as the sun was going down into the black pines. things not even connected to anything in particular, while other things, big things even, come completely disconnected and no longer have any shape or sound. The little things seem more real than the big things." - Author: Robert Goolrick

Quotes About Vjera

"Stjecanje kontrole nad ženskim razmišljanjem ima, naime, svoja strogo određena pravila; onaj tko odluči ženu nagovarati, uvjeravati je razumnim argumentima i slično teško da će nešto postići. Kudikamo je pametnije odrediti osnovnu autostilizaciju žene (osnovne principe kojima se rukovodi, ideale, uvjerenja) i nastojati da se (pomoću sofizma, alogične demagogije itd.) željena odluka žene dovede u sklad s tom autostilizacijom." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Jump Shots

"Guys dont understand great art. They dont care that sometimes the camera has power beyond the photographer to record emotion that only the heart can see. Theyre threatened when the camera jumps ahead of me. Todd Kovich was pissed when I brought my Nikon to the prom, but Id missed too many transcendent shots over the years to ever take a chance of missing one again. A prom, I told him, had a boundless supply of photogenic bozos who could be counted on to do something base." - Author: Joan Bauer
