Quotes About Anglo Saxons

"There is one aspect of the change in moral values brought about by the advance of collectivism which at the present time provides special food for thought. It is that the virtues which are held less and less in esteem and which consequently become rarer and precisely those on which the British people justly prided themselves and in which they were generally agreed to excel. The virtues possessed by Anglo-Saxons in a higher degree than most other people, excepting only a few of the smaller nations, like the Swiss and the Dutch, were independence and self-reliance, individual initiative and local responsbility, the successful reliance on voluntary activity, noninterference with ones neighbor and tolerance of the different and queer, respect for custom and tradition, and a healthy suspicion of power and authority." - Author: Friedrich Hayek

Quotes About Picking Up The Pieces And Moving On

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story were told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes were so focused on finding our happy ending we dont learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who dont, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesnt include a guy, maybe... its you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope." - Author: Greg Behrendt

Quotes About A Man Becoming A Father

"In choosing, moreover, for his father an amiable man of fifty-two, who had already lost an only son, and for his mother a woman of thirty-eight, whose first and only child he was, little Jon had done well and wisely.
