[Heade's Calm Is Unsteady, Storm-stirred; We Respond In Our Era To Its Hint Of The Nervous And The Fearful. His Weather Is Interior Weather, In A Sense, And He Perhaps Was, If Far From The First To Portray A Modern Mood, An Ambivalent Mood Tinged With Dread And Yet Imbued With A Certain Lightness.The Mood Could Even Be Said To Be Religious: Not An Aggressive Preachment Of God's Grandeur But A Kind Of Zen Poise And Acceptance, Represented By The Small Sedentary Or Plodding Foreground Figures That Appear Uncannily At Peace As The Clouds Blacken And The Lightning Flashes.]

Noriko Nakada Quotes

"As the lights fade to a distant glow, I look back toward the city and imagine, somewhere in all of those lives, a little girl who is a lot like me. Maybe she rides in a car thinking about someone living far away from these lights and people. Even though our lives are separated by so much I wonder if she imagines the world through eyes like mine."

Hans Denck Quotes

"O my God, how does it happen in this poor world that you are so great and yet nobody finds you, that you call so loudly and yet nobody hears you, that you are so near and yet nobody feels you, that you give yourself to everybody and yet nobody knows your name? Men flee from you and say they cannot find you; they turn their backs and say they cannot see you; they stop their ears and say they cannot hear you."

Trevor Ravenscroft Quotes

"In other words, Hitlers soul life was not mature enough at that moment to maintain an awareness of himself and his surroundings when this alien entity entered him. During the following six months during a series of irregular meetings and discussions with Hitler, Walter Stein was to witness a maturing soul development in this enigmatic character through which he became more and more a conscious and responsive tool of the world-shattering purposes of the demonic Spirit which overshadowed him. I move like a sleep-walker where Providence dictates, said Adolf Hitler at a press interview."

Quotes About Attended

"I am not a religious man. I have not attended a service for many years. But I do believe in God. My own practice of religion, you could say, it a nonpractice. I personally feel that its just as worthy on a weekend to rake the lawns of an elderly neighbor or to climb a mountain and marvel at the beauty of this land we live in as it is to sing hosannas or go to Mass. In other words, I think every many finds his own church- and not all of them have four walls - Judge Haig (Page 399)" - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Mankind Being Good

"Such is the facility with which mankind believe at one and the same time things inconsistent with one another, and so few are those who draw from what they receive as truths, any consequences but those recommended to them by their feelings, that multitudes have held the undoubting belief in an Omnipotent Author of Hell, and have nevertheless identified that being with the one best conception they were able to form of perfect goodness." - Author: John Stuart Mill

Quotes About Undergraduates

"[Presently, science undergraduates] do not learn to write clearly and briefly, marshalling their points in due and aesthetically satisfying order, and eliminating inessentials.

Quotes About Gino

"Each person leaves a legacy--a single, small piece of herself, which makes richer each individual life and the collective life of humanity as a whole. But do not despair, for despair is a despicable and bourgeois affectation; we must not allow it.

Quotes About Idom

"Bezgove ure"To je stari bezeg za hišo. To so bezgove ure.Grozljivo zelena tesnoba listov.Črnikasta barva jagod. Grenki bezgov čas pred nevihto. Pod zidom vetje kopriv.Nepokošena trava.Za zidom soba.Preležani duh samskih stricev.Votlo bezgovo steblo nedelje.Poobedna tihota.Rdečkasti peclji jagod.Njihov plehki, pusti okusv bezgovem spancu.Sladke sline zorijov medlečih ustih dečkov,ki slonijo ob bezgovih bokih hiš." - Author: Kajetan Kovič

"No one answers when I knock. But I left a cake and a card on the porch last night, and this morning when I was jogging I noticed that it was gone.""That could mean anything.

Discovering vampires has really thrown a wrench in my concept of reality if my first theory is cake-stealing raccoons." - Author: A.M. Robinson

Quotes About Burning Bush

"Faced with the Divine, people took refuge in the banal, as though answering a cosmic multiple-choice question: If you saw a burning bush, would you (a) call 911, (b) get the hot dogs, or (c) recognize God? A vanishingly small number of people would recognize God, Anne had decided years before, and most of them had simply missed a dose of Thorazine." - Author: Mary Doria Russell
