Joseph Goldstein Quotes

"In the second training, we develop energy, concentration, and mindfulness. These are the meditative and life tools that enable us to awaken. Without them we simply act out the patterns of our conditioning."

Quotes About Caught Lying

"Of such great powers or beings there may be conceivably a survival... a survival of a hugely remote period when... consciousness was manifested, perhaps, in shapes in forms long since withdrawn before the tide of advancing humanity... forms of which poetry and legend alone have caught a flying memory and called them gods, monsters, mythical beings of all sorts and kinds..." - Author: Algernon Blackwood

Quotes About Letteratura

"A forza di soffrire per te ho contratto un debito intellettuale nei confronti del tempo che attraverso. Sono un militante del pensiero critico. Mi attirano libri che fino a qualche tempo fa minnervosivano solo a leggerne il titolo. Sei compatibile con tutto: con il privato, il pubblico, la politica, letica, lestetica, la religione, la musica, la letteratura, il cinema, il teatro, linformazione, la tecnologia, la pubblicità dei pannolini e persino quella delle macchine. Ogni cosa è compromessa con te. E io sono obbligato a speculare su tutto, perché tutto ti riguarda. Sei ovunque, tranne dove vorrei che fossi. Indovina dove." - Author: Diego De Silva

Quotes About Student Discourse

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead." - Author: David Denby

Quotes About Limiting Freedom Of Speech

"He was learning that to win a fight like this, it was not enough to know what one was fighting against. That was easy. He was fighting against the view that people could be killed for their ideas, and against the ability of any religion to place a limiting point on thought. But he needed, now, to be clear of what he was fighting for. Freedom of speech, freedom of the imagination, freedom from fear, and the beautiful, ancient art of which he was privileged to be a practitioner. Also skepticism, irreverence, doubt, satire, comedy, and unholy glee. He would never again flinch from the defense of these things. p. 285" - Author: Salman Rushdie

Quotes About Peppers

"Course they wouldnt have all the details, like whether or not they played in squares of sunlight on their walls, if they wore spiders on their hats, if they ate hamburger every other day, if they had ever made love in a yellow canola field tenderly or passionately or awkwardly. If they preferred dresses or pants, if they shaved their legs or didnt, or if they preferred red peppers to green. Stuff was happening. Even in Half-a-Life. Little things, but it all added up to something big. To our lives. It was happening all along. These were our lives. This was it. My mom was hanging on to the lives, the recorded lives, of these women. We might escape, but what if we didnt? What if we lived in Half-a-Life all our lives, poor, lonely, proud, happy? If we did, we did. These were our lives. If we couldnt escape them, wed have to live them." - Author: Miriam Toews

Quotes About Glee Music

"Adaptability is crucial to working on Glee because every day is adapting to something. Because were doing a different genre of music, doing a different type of scene with a different scene partner, recording and dance rehearsals... no day is like another." - Author: Kevin McHale

Quotes About Going Bankrupt

"Why does anyone stay in an unhappy relationship? Because people do. They do it all the time. And the truth is, when youre in it, when youre up to your neck in the everyday part of life with another human being, sometimes you dont exactly notice how bad things really are. Its not always as apparent as it would seem. Unhappiness, when it involves another person, can be like that line from The Sun Also Rises about going bankrupt, how it happens two ways: gradually, and then suddenly." - Author: Sarah Dunn

Quotes About Building Materials

"--Gardens, not buildings--Great projects start out feeling like buildings. There are architects, materials, staff, rigid timelines, permits, engineers, a structure.It works or it doesnt.Build something that doesnt fall down. On time.But in fact, great projects, like great careers and relationships that last, are gardens. They are tended, they shift, they grow. They endure over time, gaining a personality and reflecting their environment. When something dies or fades away, we prune, replant and grow again.Perfection and polish arent nearly as important as good light, good drainage and a passionate gardener.By all means, build. But dont finish. Dont walk away.Here we grow." - Author: Seth Godin
