Quotes About Destitution

"There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny. In this world of ours in other lands, there are some people, who, in times past, have lived and fought for freedom, and seem to have grown too weary to carry on the fight. They have sold their heritage of freedom for the illusion of a living. They have yielded their democracy. I believe in my heart that only our success can stir their ancient hope. They begin to know that here in America we are waging a war against want and destitution and economic demoralization. It is more than that; it is a war for the survival of democracy. We are fighting to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world." - Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt

Quotes About Minds Connecting

"Nobody really enjoys having to pacify their feelings. Its too much like failure; it reminds you of weakness. but feelings dont want to be pacified, either. They want to be fulfilled. You fulfill your positive feelings (love, hope, optimism, appreciation, approval) by connecting with other people, expressing your best self. You fulfill your negative feelings by releasing them. Your whole system recognizes negative feelings as toxic. Its futile to bottle them up, divert them, ignore them, or try to rise above them. Either negativity is leaving or its hanging on - it has no other alternative. As you fulfill emotions, your brain will change and form new patterns, which is the whole goal." - Author: Deepak Chopra

Quotes About Werewolves And Vampires

The power of love and hate." - Author: David Clement Davies
