"You cannot beat timeby running through its carriages."

Mohsin Hamid Quotes

"След обяд имахме практически упражнения, предназначени да ни запознаят с компютърни програми като PowerPoint, Excel и Access. За този курс седяхме в полукръг около благ инструктор с вид на библиотекар; Уейнрайт тутакси нарече мероприятието Време със семейството на Майкрософт."

Pola Muzyka Quotes

"You see, Yousef, you cant force someone in their hearts to believe the way you do. They all tried and failed. They judged by their own convictions--not even by the truth of the teachings of Isa. No one is above Gods judgment. No one has the right to judge for him."

Kimberly Pauley Quotes

"A book is never, ever finished. You simply get to a point where you and your editor are reasonably happy with how it is and you go with that. Left to our own devices, a writer would endlessly fiddle with a book, changing little thing after little thing."

Red Cloud Quotes

"They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it."

Pat Oliphant Quotes

"Journalism was looked upon as a more noble thing than it is now. I dont know if it carries the same cachet that it did then."

"I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself."

Philip Gulley Quotes

"In any crowd there is a malcontent or two, and the Easter crowd is no exception. Someone invariably demands I speak out against the Easter Bunny. I am captivated by a great number of subjects, but have never worked up the enthusiasm to preach against rabbits, real or mythic. These are the same people who complain about Santa at Christmas and want me to take a swipe at Halloween."

Frithjof Schuon Quotes

"A civilization is integral and healthy to the extent [that] it is founded on the "invisible" or "underlying" religion, the religio perennis, that is, to the extent [that] its expressions or forms are transparent to the Non-Formal and tend toward the Origin, thus conveying the recollection of a lost Paradise, but also - and with all the more reason - the presentiment of a timeless Beatitude. For the Origin is at once within us and before us; time is but a spiral movement around a motionless Center."

Walter Russell Mead Quotes

"We Americans look at the last 300 years of history, and we basically see a world thats getting better and better. The rule of freedom expands. The economy develops. We have risen to become the worlds greatest power."

Quotes About Accident

"The vast differences in power contributed to faulty social theories of these differences that are still with us today. When a society is economically dominant, it is easy for its members to assume that such dominance reflects a deeper superiority--whether religious, racial, genetic, cultural, or institutional--rather than an accident of timing or geography." - Author: Jeffrey D. Sachs

Quotes About Inn

"She was living in bad sociery; and, imaginary though it was, its influence affected her, for she was feeding heart and fancy on dangerous and unsubstantial food, and was fast brushing the innocent bloom from her nature by a premature acquaintance with the darker side of life, which comes soon enough to all of us." - Author: Louisa May Alcott

Quotes About General

"It is above all in the present democratic age that the true friends of liberty and human grandeur must remain constantly vigilant and ready to prevent the social power from lightly sacrificing the particular rights of a few individuals to the general execution of its designs. In such times there is no citizen so obscure that it is not very dangerous to allow him to be oppressed, and there are no individual rights so unimportant that they can be sacrificed to arbitrariness with impunity." - Author: Alexis de Tocqueville

Quotes About Arch Nemesis

"I stood there in the kitchen, watching her staring across the meadow still searching for her nemesis and I thought, suddenly, that this is all our lives - this is the one fact that applies to us all, that makes us what we are, our common mortality, our common humanity. One day someone is going to come and take us away: you dont need to have been a spy, I thought, to feel like this." - Author: William Boyd

Quotes About Sidedness

"Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom." - Author: Murray Bookchin

Quotes About New Age

"I think records were just a little bubble through time and those who made a living from them for a while were lucky. There is no reason why anyone should have made so much money from selling records except that everything was right for this period of time. I always knew it would run out sooner or later. It couldnt last, and now its running out. I dont particularly care that it is and like the way things are going. The record age was just a blip. It was a bit like if you had a source of whale blubber in the 1840s and it could be used as fuel. Before gas came along, if you traded in whale blubber, you were the richest man on Earth. Then gas came along and youd be stuck with your whale blubber. Sorry mate – historys moving along. Recorded music equals whale blubber. Eventually, something else will replace it." - Author: Brian Eno

Quotes About Allah Forgiveness

"I have to ask Allahs forgiveness and not get angry, because they come to me out of love, and its not fitting that I should turn to them in hatred." - Author: Abdul Qadeer Khan

Quotes About Brief

"The ritual worked. That is the most ghastly thing. I hold no particular brief for the rationality of the world, but that this vile obscenity should actually have the power to bring back the dead seems to me not merely a sign that the world is not rational, but that it is in fact entirely insane, a murderous lunatic gibbering in the corner of a padded cell." - Author: Sarah Monette
