[History Is But The Record Of The Public And Official Acts Of Human Beings. It Is Our Object, Therefore, To Humanize Our History And Deal With People Past And Present; People Who Ate And Possibly Drank; People Who Were Born, Flourished And Died; Not Grave Tragedians, Posing Perpetually For Their Photographs.]

Quotes About White Rooms

"Loretta folded her arms. She felt like a heroine in a movie, confronted by a jealous husband in a kitchen while outside the camera is aching to draw back and show a wonderland of adventures waiting for her—long, frantic rides on trains, landscapes of wounded soldiers, a lovely white desert across which a camel caravan draped voluptuously in veils moves slowly with a kind of mincing melancholy, the steamy jungles of India opening before British officers in white, young officers, the mysteries of English drawing-rooms cracking before the quick, humorless smirk of a wise young woman from America. . . ." - Author: Joyce Carol Oates

Quotes About Shaggy Hair

"I fire again and again, and none of the bullets come close."Statistically speaking," the Erudite boy next to me-his name is Will-says, grinning at me, "you should have hit the target at least once by now, even by accident." He is blond, with shaggy hair and a crease between his eyebrows."Is that so," I say without inflection."Yeah," he says. "I think youre actually defying nature."I grit my teeth and turn toward the target, resolving to at least stand still. If I cant muster the first task they give us,how will I ever make it through stage one?I squeeze the trigger,hard, and this time Im ready for the recoil.It makes my hand jump back,but my feet stay planted.A bullet hole appears at the edge of the target,and I raise an eyebrow at Will."So you see,Im right.The stats dont lie," he says.I smile a little." - Author: Veronica Roth

Quotes About Absolute Truth

"The only absolute truth is change, and death is the only way to stop change. Life is a series of judgments on changing situations, and no ideal, no belief fits every solution. Yet humans need to believe in something beyond themselves. Perhaps all intelligences do. If we do not act on higher motivations, then we can justify any action, no matter how horrible, as necessary for our survival. We are endlessly caught between the need for high moral absolutes—which will fail enough that any absolute can be demonstrated as false—and our tendency for individual judgments to degenerate into self-gratifying and unethical narcissism. Trying to force absolutes on others results in death and destruction, yet failing to act beyond ones self also leads to death and destruction, generally a lot sooner." - Author: L.E. Modesitt Jr.

Quotes About The Best Friend You Love

"The Puritan ethic of marriage was first to look not for a partner whom you do love passionately at this moment but rather for one whom you can love steadily as your best friend for life, then to proceed with Gods help to do just that." - Author: J.I. Packer

Quotes About Daring To Dream

"Any real change implies the breakup of the world as one has always known it, the loss of all that gave one an identity, the end of safety. And at such a moment, unable to see and not daring to imagine what the future will now bring forth, one clings to what one knew, or dreamed that one possessed. Yet, it is only when a man is able, without bitterness or self-pity, to surrender a dream he has long possessed that he is set free - he has set himself free - for higher dreams, for greater privileges." - Author: James Baldwin
