"Nothing is so beautiful as spring - when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; Thrushs eggs look little low heavens, and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing."

Pentti Linkola Quotes

Quotes About War And Death

"Höderer: You dont love men, Hugo. You love only principles. Hugo: Men? Why should I love them? Do they love me?Höderer: Then why did you come to us? If you dont love men, you cant fight for them.Hugo: I joined the party because its cause is just, and I shall leave it when that cause ceases to be just. As for men, its not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.Höderer: And I, I love them for what they are. With all their filth and and all their vices. I love their voices and their warm grasping hands, and their skin, the nudest skin of all, and their uneasy glances, and the desperate struggle each has to pursue against anguish and against death. For me, one man more or less in the world is something that counts. Its something precious. You, I know you now, you are a destroyer. You detest men because you detest yourself. Your purity resembles death. The revolution you dream of is not ours. You dont want to change the world, you want to blow it up." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre

Quotes About Abandoning Ship

"When John left the band, I resented him for not being my friend and for abandoning our musical comradeship. But all the time that he was out of the band and going through his anguish, I prayed for him constantly. From going to meetings Id learned that one of the reasons that alcoholics get loaded is because they harbor resentments. One of the techniques they teach to get rid of a resentment toward somebody is to pray for him or her to get everything that you want for yourself in life-to be loved, to be successful, to be healthy, to be rich, to be wonderful, to be happy, to be alive with the light and the love of the universe. Its a paradox, but it works. You sit there and pray for the person you cant stand to get everything on earth that you would want for yourself, and one day youre like I dont feel anything bad toward this person." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Self Love

"Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline.

I am proud of everything that I am and will become." - Author: Johnny Weir

Quotes About Questioning Your Relationship

"Mom?" I say as I slip on my boots. "I know you were only eighteen when you met Dad. I mean, thats really young to meet the person you spend the rest of your life with. Do you ever regret it?"She doesnt answer immediately. Instead, she lies back on my bed and clasps her hands behind her head, pondering my question."Ive never regretted it. Questioned it? Sure. But never regretted.""Is there a difference?" I ask."Absolutely. Regret is counterproductive. Its looking back on a past that you cant change. Questioning things as they occur can prevent regret in the future. I questioned a lot about my relationship with your father. People make spontaneous decisions based on of their hearts all the time. Theres so much more to relationships than just love." - Author: Colleen Hoover

Quotes About Old Love Rekindled

"She was a romantic, warm hearted, sentimental fool in a very cold world, the type of world that sometimes seemed to have no refuge for dreamers and those that believe in true love. At times she would feel loves warm rays dance briskly across her face and the seeds of self worth in her heart would just for an instant anticipate the beginning of spring and the end of her winter. The spring that would break the talons clutch of fear and vulnerability which gripped her so tightly. What she feared most of all was that the source of her love would turn to ice if not rekindled by the warmth of anothers breath. That this ice would envelop her soul and the weight of the hurt she carried inside would shatter her frozen spirit into million pieces.Maybe spring was just a dream but sometimes, even a dream is just enough to get you through the cold." - Author: Ged Thompson Liverpool Poet

Quotes About Determinist

"This is a throwback to the Aristotelian conception of nature, banished from the scene at the birth of modern science. But I have been persuaded that the idea of teleological laws is coherent, and quite different from the idea of explanation of the intentions of a purposive being who produces the means to his ends by choice. In spite of the exclusion of teleology from contemporary science, it certainly shouldnt be ruled out a priori. Formally, the possibility of principles of change over time tending toward certain types of outcome is coherent, in a world in which the nonteleological laws are not fully deterministic." - Author: Thomas Nagel
