[For A Practitioner Of Love And Compassion, An Enemy Is One Of The Most Important Teachers. Without An Enemy You Cannot Practice Tolerance, And Without Tolerance You Cannon Build A Sound Basis Of Compassion. So In Order To Practice Compassion, You Should Have An Enemy.When You Face Your Enemy Who Is Going To Hurt You, That Is The Real Time To Practice Tolerance. Therefore, An Enemy Is The Cause Of The Practice Of Tolerance; Tolerance Is The Effect Or Result Of An Enemy. So Those Are Cause And Effect. As Is Said, "Once Something Has The Relationship Of Arising From That Thing, One Cannot Consider That Thing From Which It Arises As A Harmer; Rather It Assists The Production Of The Effect.]

Lauren Sarner Quotes

"New Adult is a label that is condescending to readers and authors alike. It implies that the books act as training wheels between Young Adult and Adult. For the New Adult books that are particularly childish, the label implies that they are a step above Young Adult--which is insulting to the Young Adult books that are far superior. For the New Adult books that are particularly sophisticated, the label implies that they are not worthy of being considered "adult." Its a lose-lose situation for everyone.[...]Therefore, the new genre of New Adult is a large step backwards. It increases the system of categories and labels even further, and prevents readers from expanding their horizons and minds. The term is reductive and it is insulting to its own audience."

Quotes About Family Roots

"To every Old World belief, habit, or tradition, there was and still is a technological alternative. To prayer, the alternative is penicillin; to family roots, the alternative is mobility; to reading, the alternative is television; to restraint, the alternative is immediate gratification; to sin, the alternative is psychotherapy; to political ideology, the alternative is popular appeal established through scientific polling. There is even an alternative to the painful riddle of death, as Freud called it. The riddle may be postponed through longer life, and then perhaps solved altogether by cryogenics." - Author: Neil Postman

Quotes About Friends And Memories

"No. Take the heart first. Then you dont feel the cold so much. The pain so much. With the heart gone, theres no reason to stay your hand. Your eyes can look on death and not tremble.

Its the heart that sings old songs and brings memories of warm days." - Author: Jeanette Winterson

Quotes About Severed Ties

"To muse for long unwearied hours with my attention riveted to some frivolous device upon the margin, or in the typography of a book — to become absorbed for the better part of a summers day in a quaint shadow falling aslant upon the tapestry, or upon the floor — to lose myself for an entire night in watching the steady flame of a lamp, or the embers of a fire — to dream away whole days over the perfume of a flower — to repeat monotonously some common word, until the sound, by dint of frequent repetition, ceased to convey any idea whatever to the mind — to lose all sense of motion or physical existence in a state of absolute bodily quiescence long and obstinately persevered in — Such were a few of the most common and least pernicious vagaries induced by a condition of the mental faculties, not, indeed, altogether unparalleled, but certainly bidding defiance to any thing like analysis or explanation." - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
