[Every One Of Her Foxey Ways Was Now So Absolutely Precious To Him That I Believe That If He Had Known For Certain She Was Dead, And Had Thoughts Of Marrying A Second Time, He Would Never Have Been Happy With A Woman. No, Indeed, He Would Have Been More Tempted To Get Himself A Tame Fox, And Would Have Counted That As Good A Marriage As He Could Make.]

Thomas French Quotes

"All zoos, even the most enlightened, are built upon the idea both beguiling and repellent—the notion that we can seek out the wildness of the world and behold its beauty, but that we must first contain that wildness. Zoos argue that they are fighting for the conservation of the Earth, that they educate the public and provide refuge and support for vanishing species. And they are right. Animal-rights groups argue that zoos traffic in living creatures, exploiting them for financial gain and amusement. And they are right. Caught inside this contradiction are the animals themselves, and the humans charged with their well-being."

Bernard Knox Quotes

"Everywhere in Homers saga of the rage of Achilles and the battles before Troy we are made conscious at one and the same time of wars ugly brutality and what Yeats called its "terrible beauty." The Iliad accepts violence as a permanent factor in human life and accepts it without sentimentality, for it is just as sentimental to pretend that war does not have its monstrous ugliness as it is to deny that it has its own strange and fatal beauty, a power, which can call out in men resources of endurance, courage and self-sacrifice that peacetime, to our sorrow and loss, can rarely command."

Quotes About Values In Life

"The path of the norm is the path of least resistance; it is the route we take when were on auto-pilot and dont even realize were following a course of action that we havent consciously chosen. Most people who eat meat have no idea that theyre behaving in accordance with the tenets of a system that has defined many of their values, preferences, and behaviors. What they call free choice is, in fact, the result of a narrowly obstructed set of options that have been chosen for them. They dont realize, for instance, that they have been taught to value human life so far above certain forms of nonhuman life that it seems appropriate for their taste preferences to supersede other species preference for survival." - Author: Melanie Joy

Quotes About Sharing A Meal

"Is the Lords Supper only for Christians? Whenever I ask this question I immediately remember the character of those that partook of the Last Supper with Jesus. They were certainly Jews, some better Jews than others, but Jesus shared this meal knowingly even with Judas. Or again consider the Emmaus Road encounter. Jesus shares this meal with those who had given up on his being the One to redeem Israel, who were leaving Jerusalem downcast and disappointed, and who were oblivious to the fact that it was Jesus who was speaking and sharing with them! There has to be a balance in the liturgy to help the congregation make a decision if they themselves are ready to partake of this Meal in a worthy manner (hence the ye who do truly and earnestly repent clause), while at the same time joyfully welcoming all who are willing and ready and able to do so." - Author: Ben Witherington III

Quotes About Upcoming Marriage

"Van Gogh on his brothers upcoming marriage: "Its because hes in Holland, where hes getting married one of these days. Now, while not denying the advantages of a marriage in the very least, once it has been done and one is quietly set up in ones home, the funereal pomp of the reception &c., the lamentable congratulations of two families (even civilized) at the same time, not to mention the fortuitous appearances in those pharmacists jars where antediluvian civil or religious magistrates sit – my word – isnt there good reason to pity the poor unfortunate obliged to present himself armed with the requisite papers in the places where, with a ferocity unequalled by the cruellest cannibals, youre married alive on the low heat of the aforementioned funereal receptions." - Author: Liesbeth Heenk

Quotes About Suntans

"Someone knocked me down; I pushed Brinker over a small slope; someone was trying to tackle me from behind. Everywhere there was the smell of vitality in clothes, the vital something in wool and flannel and corduroy which spring releases. I had forgotten that this existed, this smell which instead of the first robin, or the first bud or leaf, means to me that spring has come. I had always welcomed vitality and energy and warmth radiating from thick and sturdy winter clothes. It made me happy, but I kept wondering about next spring, about whether khaki, or suntans or whatever the uniform of the season was, had this aura of promise in it. I felt fairly sure it didnt." - Author: John Knowles
