"Wouldnt it be nice, for once, to find a world which was at peace with itself. No matter how always those few wanted more than others. Those not satisfied with running their own lives but wishing to have power over the lives of the others. Greedy people. Greedy for wealth, or power or both."

Kris Courtney Quotes

"I recount as this journey begins where I rest to gather the tale from thissame old house resting on the hill, leaving me a view of a carnival once seen from just across the tracks. My pallet is dry now. The colors I see no more. The rain has washed away many of the signs that once stood for a prosperhome and family. My grave is waiting. The dreams once filled my head withimages of world unison, hope and companionship for all. The saga spokenthrough my canvas drew darker as the years went on to the bitter cold nights.All that comes to me now are glimpses of faces that graced my soul."

Laura Schenone Quotes

"On the boardwalk the arcade jukebox plays all night surrounded by teenagers--sometimes twenty bodies deep, bare-skinned and full of energy for the music, for one another, for life, for the little bit of freedom they taste in the salt air and their skin. My father finds his place in this crowd. They are a force together. They dont do drugs. They dont drink. But they do music, and their power comes from their numbers and the thrill of being young on the beach at night."

Quotes About Nutrition Day

"I didnt tell her about the free-for-alls on the school yard, muggings on the bus. A girl burned a cigarette hole in the back of another girls shirt at nutrition right in front of me looking at me as if daring me to stop her.

Quotes About Fatih

"Düşsel planda kadın son derece önemlidir; gerçek yaşamda ise tümüyle önemsiz. Şiiri bir baştan öbür başa kaplar; tarihte ise hiç görülmez. Kurmaca yazında kralların ve fatihlerin yaşamlarına hükmeder; gerçek yaşamda ailesinin parmağına bir yüzük geçirdiği herhangi bir oğlanın kölesidir. Kurmaca yazında en esin dolu sözler, en derin düşünceler onun dudaklarından dökülür; günlük yaşamda hemen hemen hiç okuyup yazamaz ve kocasının malıdır. Tarih kadından hemen hemen hiç söz etmez." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Guitars Players

"In Washington Square, one could still feel the characters of Henry James and the presence of the author himself. Entering the perimeters of the white arch, one was greeted by the sounds of bongos and acoustic guitars, protest singers, political arguments, activists leafleting, older chess players challenged by the young. This open atmosphere was something I had not experienced, simple freedom that did not seem to be oppressive to anyone." - Author: Patti Smith Just Kids

Lanes tenure ended shortly thereafter, long before the damage he caused." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Beliefs And Actions

"So, you may ask, what is the use of studying the world of imagination where anything is possible and anything can be assumed, where there are no rights or wrongs and all arguments are equally good? One of the most obvious uses, I think, is its encouragement of tolerance. In the imagination our own beliefs are also only possibilities, but we can also see the possibilities in the beliefs of others. Bigots and fanatics seldom have any use for the arts, because theyre so preoccupied with their beliefs and actions that they cant see them as also possibilities. Its possible to go to the other extreme, to be a dilettante so bemused by possibilities that one has no convictions or power to act at all. But such people are much less common than bigots, and in our world much less dangerous." - Author: Northrop Frye

Quotes About Technical Analysis

"In the eighteenth century, philosophers considered the whole of human knowledge, including science, to be their field and discussed questions such as: Did the universe have a beginning? However, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, science became too technical and mathematical for the philosophers, or anyone else except a few specialists. Philosophers reduced the scope of their inquiries so much that Wittgenstein, the most famous philosopher of this century, said, "The sole remaining task for philosophy is the analysis of language." What a comedown from the great tradition of philosophy from Aristotle to Kant!" - Author: Stephen Hawking

Quotes About Inwardly

"And there was no longer a single race who bred blindly and without question. Time and its agonizing nostalgia would touch the heart each season, and be seen in the fall of a leaf, or, most terrible of all, a loved face would grow old. Cronos and the Fates had entered mans thinking, and try to escape as he might, he would endure an interior Ice Age. He would make, and then unmake fables. Then at last, and unwillingly, comprehend an intangible abstraction called space-time, and shiver inwardly at the endless abysses of space as he had once shivered, unclothed and unlighted before the Earthly frost." - Author: Loren Eiseley
