Thomas I Emerson Quotes

"Every man — in the development of his own personality — has the right to form his own beliefs and opinions. Hence, suppression of belief, opinion and expression is an affront to the dignity of man, a negation of mans essential nature."[Toward a General Theory of the First Amendment (1963)]"

Carmen Kass Quotes

"We feel free. Were independent. People can be openly proud of being Estonian. I have a lot of belief in Estonia."

Dennis Gabor Quotes

"I do not know of anything in modern poetry as violently hostile to contemporary life as was the poetry of T. S. Eliot, which so perfectly fitted the mood of the young people between the two wars. I also find much more benevolence towards humanity in younger historians than there was in Spengler or in Toynbee. Still, it is not difficult to sense the disgust of the intellectuals at the new prosperous working class, with their eyes glued to the television screen, who have become indifferent to radical ideas."

Auf dem Kontinent, der vor uns lag, war es schon >morgen<."

"Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer." - Author: Dean Koontz

Quotes About Nerds Funny

"Being in trouble can have a funny effect on the mind. I dont know if I can explain this. You go through some days and you seem to be hearing people and you seem to be talking to them and you seem to be doing your work, or, at least, your work gets done; but you havent seen or heard a soul and if someone asked you what you have done that day youd have to think awhile before you could answer. But at the same time, and even on the self-same day-- and this is what is hard to explain--you see people like you never saw them before." - Author: James Baldwin

Quotes About Presidential Presidency

"♥ To my daughter Taliah, I just wanted to tell you how proud we are all of you and all the other children of the PS22 Chorus of Staten Island. With your great determination and hard work you all made this day happen, singing at the presidential inauguration. I want you to remember this day for the rest of your life, because it is such an historical day for you, for your school and for our nation. As you sit above the great man below you taking the oath of presidency...remember as a child he had dreams too and the great odds he had to overcome to achieve them . May your dreams take you far in your life and may it all start on this day, at this period of time, at this historical moment in your lives...may you all cherish this moment in your hearts forever!" - Author: Timothy Pina

Quotes About Learns

"When one is young, one venerates and despises without that art of nuances which constitutes the best gain of life, and it is only fair that one has to pay dearly for having assaulted men and things in this manner with Yes and No. Everything is arranged so that the worst of tastes, the taste for the unconditional, should be cruelly fooled and abused until a man learns to put a little art into his feelings and rather to risk trying even what is artificial — as the real artists of life do." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Psych Gus

Stigmatising an illness is more odious still." - Author: Sally Brampton

Quotes About Meditation In Nature

"It was the cool gray dawn, and there was a delicious sense of repose and peace in the deep pervading calm and silence of the woods. Not a leaf stirred; not a sound obtruded upon great Natures meditation [...] Gradually the cool dim gray of the morning whitened, and as gradually sounds multiplied and life manifested itself. The marvel of Nature shaking off sleep and going to work unfolded itself to the musing boy [...] All Nature was wide awake and stirring, now; long lances of sunlight pierced down through the dense foliage far and near, and a few butterflies came fluttering upon the scene." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Democratic Education

"A democratic society must seek to give every young person, whether native-born or newcomer, the knowledge and skills to succeed as an adult. In a political system that relies on the participation of informed citizens, everyone should, at a minimum, learn to speak, read and write a common language. Those who would sustain our democratic life must understand its history. Tailoring childrens education to the color of their skin, their national origins, or their presumed ethnicity is in some fundamental sense contrary to our nations founding ideals of democracy, equality and opportunity." - Author: Diane Ravitch

Quotes About Rat
