Michael A Mullett Quotes

"Humanists were people who wanted to return to ideas found in old Greek and Latin writing of Greece and Rome, written many centuries earlier. Christian Humanists also wanted to get back to these ideas, but they were mainly concerned with learning about the early Christian Church, before it had become involved with money-making and superstition. They wanted to read the books of the early Church, especially the gospels of Christ, in the original language of Greek, so that they would know exactly what the writings meant. The leader of the Christian Humanists was Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), who attacked superstitions in the Catholic Church in his writing."

Patty Hite Quotes

"When I deny the seriousness of my abuse I agree with my abuser and those who wouldnt acknowledge it. When I am in denial, I have the tendency to minimize my abuse, believe the lies others have said, as well as deny it ever happened. It is important for me to remember as much detail as I can so I can trust my own perceptions of what really happened and not depend on the validations from others."

Carol Ann Duffy Quotes

"Like the sand and the oyster, its a creative irritant. In each poem, Im trying to reveal a truth, so it cant have a fictional beginning."

John Ray Quotes

"Good words cool more than cold water."

Willem Lange Quotes

"What New England is, is a state of mind, a place where dry humor and perpetual disappointment blend to produce an ironic pessimism that folks from away find most perplexing"

Pierre Louis Moreau De Maupertuis Quotes

"Might one not say that in the chance combination of natures production, since only those endowed with certain relations of suitability could survive, it is no cause for wonder that this suitability is found in all species that exist today? Chance, one might say, produced an innumerable multitude of individuals; a small number turned out to be constructed in such fashion that the parts of the animal could satisfy its needs; in another, infinitely greater number, there was neither suitability nor order: all of the later have perished; animals without a mouth could not live, others lacking organs for reproduction could not perpetuate themselves: the only ones to have remained are those in which were found order and suitability; and these species, which we see today, are only the smallest part of what blind fate produced."

Eugene V Debs Quotes

"Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization."

Danny Tyran Quotes

"Take a glass of wine while reading, your feet on the back of your slave. This is the best combination of pleasures that is."

Rob MacGregor Quotes

"Only the penitent man will pass..."

Noel Ignatiev Quotes

"Whiteness is not a culture. There is Irish culture and Italian culture and American culture - the latter, as Albert Murray pointed out, a mixture of the Yankee, the Indian, and the Negro (with a pinch of ethnic salt); there is youth culture and drug culture and queer culture; but there is no such thing as white culture. Whiteness has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with social position. It is nothing but a reflection of privilege, and exists for no reason other than to defend it. Without the privileges attached to it, the white race would not exist, and the white skin would have no more social significance than big feet."

Quotes About Discipline For Students

"In short, we much struggle with the meaning of learning within our discipline and how best to cultivate and recognize it. For that task, we dont need routine experts who know all the right procedures but adaptive ones who can apply fundamental principles to all the situations and students they are likely to encounter, recognizing when invention is both possible and necessary and that there is no single best way to teach." - Author: Ken Bain

Quotes About Regardless

"A hero is also someone who, in their day to day interactions with the world, despite all the pain, uncertainty and doubt that can plague us, is resiliently and unashamedly themselves. If you can wake up every day and be emotionally open and honest regardless of what you get back from the world then you can be the hero of your own story. Each and every person who can say that despite lifes various buffetings that they are proud to be the person they are is a hero. Now I do have to mention the real heroes of The Trevor Project, the men and women volunteers, all of whom stand up day after day answering the calls of desperate teens whose circumstances have pushed them to the edge of the abyss. To take that call, and say yes, I will be the one who saves this life takes such courage and compassion. Hemingways definition of ‘grace under pressure seems fitting as the job they do is every bit as important, and every bit as delicate as a soldier defusing a bomb." - Author: Daniel Radcliffe

Quotes About Everyday Is A Good Day

"I submit that Zooeys face was close to being a wholly beautiful face. As such, it was of course vulnerable to the same variety of glibly undaunted and usually specious evaluations that any legitimate art object is. I think it just remains to be said that any one of a hundred everyday menaces — a car accident, a head cold, a lie before breakfast — could have disfigured or coarsened his bounteous good looks in a day or a second." - Author: J.D. Salinger

Quotes About Homing

"Bradford paused and his expression shadowed. He pulled her back and held her tight. Whispered, "Dont say it, okay? I know whats coming and I dont want to hear it. Not tonight. Tomorrow maybe, but not tonight." He wasnt talking about Kate Breeden. They both knew that Munroe could only bear so much pain and loss before coming completely undone. She needed time away, time to heal, and she could only do that by returning to who she was: the lone operative, shut down and shut off. Munroe set the glass on an end table, wrapped her arms around his neck, and kissed him. She truly loved him; always would. She smiled and fought back the sadness, glad in a way that she was spared from having to say good-bye, from uttering the words she never wanted to speak—although, in truth, there would never really be a good-bye, because if this was where home was, then like a homing pigeon shed return, and Bradford had to know it, just as he also knew her reasons for leaving." - Author: Taylor Stevens

Quotes About Afternoon Love

"OctoberO love, turn from the changing sea and gaze,Down these grey slopes, upon the year grown old,A-dying mid the autumn-scented hazeThat hangeth oer the hollow in the wold,Where the wind-bitten ancient elms infoldGrey church, long barn, orchard, and red-roofed stead,Wrought in dead days for men a long while dead.Come down, O love; may not our hands still meet,Since still we live today, forgetting June,Forgetting May, deeming October sweet? - - Oh, hearken! hearken! through the afternoonThe grey tower sings a strange old tinkling tune!Sweet, sweet, and sad, the toiling years last breath,To satiate of life, to strive with death.And we too -will it not be soft and kind,That rest from life, from patience, and from pain,That rest from bliss we know not when we find,That rest from love which neer the end can gain?- Hark! how the tune swells, that erewhile did wane!Look up, love! -Ah! cling close, and never move!How can I have enough of life and love?" - Author: William Morris

Quotes About Nacional

"Por aquella época había hecho una gran demostración de su descubrimiento en un Congreso Internacional de Astronomía. Pero debido a su indumentaria, nadie le había hecho caso. Los mayores son así.Afortunadamente, para la reputación del asteroide B 612 un dictador turco impuso a su pueblo, bajo la pena de muerte, la obligación de vestirse a la europea. El astrónomo volvió a hacer su demostración, en 1920, con un traje muy elegante. Y esta vez sí, todos fueron de su parecer" - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Envision

"The Pentacle - The ancients envisioned their world in two halves - masculine and feminine. Their gods and goddesses worked to keep a balance of power. Yin and Yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced there was chaos." - Author: Dan Brown
