Colin Bord Quotes

"Allegorical stories of saints battling with giants, monsters and demons may be interpreted as symbolizing the Christians fight against paganism. At Bwlch Rhiwfelen (Denbigh) St Collen fought and killed a cannibal giantess, afterwards washing away the blood-stains in a well later known as Ffynnon Gollen. In Ireland, the tales of saints slaying giant serpents may have the same meaning; alternatively they (or some of them) may refer to early sightings of genuine water monsters. St Barry banished a serpent from a mountain into Lough Lagan (Roscommon), and a holy well sprang up where the saints knee touched the ground."

Chrystine Oksana Quotes

"Violators cannot live with the truth: survivors cannot live without it. There are those who still, once again, are poised to invalidate and deny us. If we dont assert our truth, it may again be relegated to fantasy. But the truth wont go away. It will keep surfacing until it is recognized. Truth will outlast any campaigns mounted against it, no matter how mighty, clever, or long. It is invincible. Its only a matter of which generation is willing to face it and, in so doing, protect future generations from ritual abuse."

"Every day I turn on my television set and I see Newt Gingrich on television, I rejoice."

Franois Jacob Quotes

"To produce a valuable observation, one has first to have an idea of what to observe, a preconception of what is possible. Scientific advances often come from uncovering a hitherto unseen aspect of things as a result, not so much of using new instruments, but rather of looking at objects from a different angle. This look is necessarily guided by a certain idea of what this so-called reality might be. It always involves a certain conception about the unknown, that is, about what lies beyond that which one has logical or experimental reasons to believe."

Freya North Quotes

"Currently she was midway through a bittersweet David Nicholls novel that any other time might well have made her self-indulgently reflective."

Lucinda Franks Quotes

"Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love."

Quotes About Argument Writing

"Chapter 4,‘Organised abuse and the pleasures of disbelief, uses Zizeks (1991) insights into cite political role of enjoyment to analyse the hyperbole and scorn that has characterised the sceptical account of organised and ritualistic abuse. The central argument of this chapter is that organised abuse has come to public attention primarily as a subject of ridicule within the highly partisan writings of journalists, academics and activists aligned with advocacy groups for people accused of sexual abuse. Whilst highlighting the pervasive misrepresentations that characterise these accounts, the chapter also implicates media consumers in the production of ignorance and disdain in relation to organised abuse and womens and childrens accounts of sexual abuse more generally." - Author: Michael Salter

"Im going insane. Thats the only explanation for any of this. Im going insane and the men in white coats will be showing up at any moment to tell me this has all been a psychotic delusion. Theyll take me away and lock me up, and Ill be free to drool in the corner of my padded cell for the rest of my life without a care in the world.

Quotes About Paul D

"I cleaned the shit off my pink high-tops and drove home, stopping for an espresso at the coffeehouse across from the college. Men and women were hunched over copies of Jean Paul Sartre and writing in their journals. Most wore the thin-rimmed tortoiseshell glasses favored by intellectuals. Their clothes were faded to a precisely fashionable degree; you can buy them that way from catalogs now, new clothes processed to look old. The intellectuals looked at me in my overalls the way such people inevitably look at farmers. I dumped a lot of sugar in my espresso and sipped it delicately at a corner table near the door. I looked at them the way farmers look at intellectuals." - Author: Mary Rose OReilley

Quotes About Gugur

"Tak pernah ada perang untuk perang. Ada banyak bangsa yang berperang bukan hendak keluar sebagai pemenang.

Quotes About Pet Deaths

"For me the world has always been more of a puppet show. But when one looks behind the curtain and traces the strings upward he finds they terminate in the hands of yet other puppets, themselves with their own strings which trace upward in turn, and so on. In my own life I saw these strings whose origins were endless enact the deaths of great men in violence and madness. Enact the ruin of a nation." - Author: Cormac McCarthy

Quotes About Christian Persecution

"There is one element in Christianity which was not borrowed from Paganism -- religious intolerance. Referring to Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism, a writer on China says: Between the followers of the three national religions there is not only a total absence of persecution and bitter feeling, but a very great indifference as to which of them a man may belong.... Among the politer classes, when strangers meet, the question is asked: To what sublime religion do you belong, and each one pronounces a eulogium, not on his own religion, but on that professed by the others, and concludes with the oft-repeated formula Religions are many; reason is one; we are all brothers." - Author: John E. Remsburg

Quotes About Netting

"I have made the best and happiest ending that I can in this world, made it out of the flax and netting and leftover trim of someone elses life, I know, but made it to keep the innocent safe and the guilty punished, and I have made it as the world should be and not as I have found it." - Author: Amy Bloom

Quotes About Ragged

"To know nothing, or little, is in the nature of some husbands. To hide, in the nature of how many women? Oh, ladies! how many of you have surreptitious milliners bills? How many of you have gowns and bracelets which you darent show, or which you wear trembling?--trembling, and coaxing with smiles the husband by your side, who does not know the new velvet gown from the old one, or the new bracelet from last years, or has any notion that the ragged-looking yellow lace scarf cost forty guineas and that Madame Bobinot is writing dunning letters every week for the money!" - Author: William Makepeace Thackeray
