Francis Frangipane Quotes

"Grace cannot be confused with righteousness. Grace is receiving what we do not deserve; mercy is not receiving what we do deserve. Righteousness, on the other hand, includes what most of us would consider difficult matters, such as punishment, correction and judgment. It also includes what most of us would consider positive matters, such as the fruit of the Spirit."

Quotes About Rancor

"Mas a explicação solitária já requer uma outra altitude - utilizemos esta palavra - da inteligência. Qualquer instinto criativo começa com esta necessidade antiga que a memória colectiva faz por esquecer: somos criativos porque queremos encontrar uma explicação solitária, uma explicação individual, uma explicação que não tenha par, que não tenha duplo, que não seja possível acompanhar, uma explicação egoísta, dirão alguns, sim, egoísta, claro. Mais que isso: rancorosa. Uma explicação que odeia as outras, que as combate, mas combate não para vencer somente as outras explicações, mas para vencer, derrotar, eliminar os próprios homens portadores de outras explicações solitárias. A explicação solitária, a ciência individual por excelência, no limite, quer eliminar todas as outras existências, porque as odeia; e odeia-as simplesmente porque outra inteligência e outra possibilidade de solidão são a prova de que sozinhos não ocupamos o mundo." - Author: Gonçalo M. Tavares

Quotes About Lebensraum

"Our strength consists in our speed and in our brutality. Genghis Khan led millions of women and children to slaughter—with premeditation and a happy heart. History sees in him solely the founder of a state. Its a matter of indifference to me what a weak western European civilization will say about me. I have issued the command—and Ill have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad—that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines, but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formation in readiness—for the present only in the East—with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks to-day of the annihilation of the Armenians?" - Author: Adolf Hitler

Quotes About Circles Of Life

"All money is imaginary," answered the Calcatrix simply. "Money is magic everyone agrees to pretend is not magic. Observe! You treat it like magic, wield it like magic, fear it like magic! Why should a body with more small circles of copper or silver or gold than anyone else have an easy life full of treats every day and sleeping in and other people bowing down? The little circles cant get up and fight a battle or make a supper so splendid you get full just by looking at it or build a house of a thousand gables. They can do those things because everyone agrees to give them power. If everyone agreed to stop giving power to pretty metals and started giving it to thumbnails or mushroom caps or roof shingles or first kisses or tears or hours or puffin feathers, those little circles would just lay there tarnishing in the rain and not making anyone bow their noses down to the ground or stick them up in the air." - Author: Catherynne M.

Quotes About Accessibility

"Whether he chooses a scholarly or a popular edition the modern reader is likely to have his judgement influenced in advance. Almost invariably he will be offered an assisted passage. Footnotes, Forewords, Afterwords serve notice that a given text is intellectually taxing—that he is likely to need help. Such apparatus is likely tobe a positive disincentive to casual reading. But a cheaper edition may offer interference of another kind. Reminders, in words or pictures, of Julie Christies Bathsheba Everdene or Michael Yorks Pip can perhaps create a beguiling sense of accessibility. But theymay also pre-empt the imaginative responses of the reader." - Author: Ian Gregor
