Quotes About Questioning Decisions

"Mom?" I say as I slip on my boots. "I know you were only eighteen when you met Dad. I mean, thats really young to meet the person you spend the rest of your life with. Do you ever regret it?"She doesnt answer immediately. Instead, she lies back on my bed and clasps her hands behind her head, pondering my question."Ive never regretted it. Questioned it? Sure. But never regretted.""Is there a difference?" I ask."Absolutely. Regret is counterproductive. Its looking back on a past that you cant change. Questioning things as they occur can prevent regret in the future. I questioned a lot about my relationship with your father. People make spontaneous decisions based on of their hearts all the time.

Quotes About Empire

"Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf any of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World; we ride railroad tracks that do not follow faithfully the curvature of the earth, for the train would jump the tracks if they were level. We pass skyscrapers whose stress and strain are figured to the millionth of an inch, yet take for granted that the Empire State Building actually sways constantly many feet. If we are religiously inclined, we take going to the church of our choice for granted; if we are non believers, we give no second thought to the fact that we do not have to attend religious services if we do not choose. Yet the very privilege of non-belief represents the victory of philosophy; otherwise the non-churchgoer would still face the lions or the stake." - Author: Kahlil Gibran
