RD Laing Quotes

"What we call ‘normal is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience. It is radically estranged from the structure of being. The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical ‘mechanisms. There are forms of alienation that are relatively strange to statistically ‘normal forms of alienation. The ‘normally alienated person, by reason of the fact that he acts more or less like everyone else, is taken to be sane. Other forms of alienation that are out of step with the prevailing state of alienation are those that are labeled by the ‘formal majority as bad or mad."

Quotes About School Rivalries

"An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts, soul is neglected." - Author: Thomas Moore

Quotes About Lumina

"So many things in this world were cracked and sad, and still a glowing showed through and moments came when everything was lit and love happened. Every tree stood where it belonged, each bird had perfect feathers folded against its tiny body, each holding a heart beating madly. Life was a vibration of light and dark, and love illuminated that life. Then darkness descended and your heart was ripped apart. So that was part of it, a requirement of the miracle. Death stayed, lurking in the shadow of beauty. In the bargain, life both had meaning and had none. So, she kept thinking, what to do? What to do? A pressure in her would not stop asking. There were not many things she could make better, not many things she could change. And yet…and yet…sparks of possibility still shot out. Unasked for, they came and randomly flew up." - Author: Susan Minot

Quotes About War Peace And Love

"I forgot to mention," Father Christopher said, smiling seraphically at Sir Martin, "that I am also a priest. So let me offer you a blessing." He pulled out a golden crucifix that had been hidden beneath his shirt and held it toward Lord Slaytons men. "May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ," he said, "comfort and sustain you while you take your farting mouths and your turd-reeking presence out of our sight." He waved a sketchy cross toward the horsemen. "And thus farewell." - Author: Bernard Cornwell

Quotes About Time Not Existing

"In fact, the fairies had turned him into a water-baby.A water-baby?  You never heard of a water-baby.  Perhaps not.  That is the very reason why this story was written.  (...)"But there are no such things as water-babies."How do you know that?  Have you been there to see?  And if you had been there to see, and had seen none, that would not prove that there were none.  If Mr. Garth does not find a fox in Eversley Wood—as folks sometimes fear he never will—that does not prove that there are no such things as foxes.  And as is Eversley Wood to all the woods in England, so are the waters we know to all the waters in the world.  And no one has a right to say that no water-babies exist, till they have seen no water-babies existing; which is quite a different thing, mind, from not seeing water-babies; and a thing which nobody ever did, or perhaps ever will do." - Author: Charles Kingsley

Quotes About Rakhi

"Tradisi Islam-Arab kita masih sangat membutuhkan kerja keras intelektual yang sistematis lewat kajian cemerlang sehingga dapat menyajikan nilai-nilai budaya Arab orisinal yang bersih dari berbagai kesesatan pemikiran dan penyimpangan akidah kepada generasi saat ini. Sudah barang tentu upaya pengkajian ini harus diawali dengan penyelarasan antara segi-segi maknawi pada tradisi tersebut dengan panduannya yang berasal dari kalangan intelektual terkemuka sehingga tidak lagi terjadi apa yang sering kita dengar dan sering kita lihat tentang eksploitasi tradisi yang berakhir pada kesia-siaan dan suatu saat hanya menjadi beban kekecewaan." - Author: Yusri Abdul Ghani Abdullah
