Lesley Anne Cowan Quotes

"Why do adults have to diminish everything by feeling they need to end meetings with a false positive? Its so selfish. They say it not because they believe it, but because it helps them feel some kind of accomplishment when they walk away. Like theyve done their job. But what do they leave behind?Its like when teachers tell Tyler that he should be a lawyer because hes good at arguing, but meanwhile he cant pass grade nine. No one wants to say hes stupid, or that hes probably going to end up in jail like his brother, so they fill his head with these stupid dreams until hes eighteen, with no credits and totally messed up for life. I say, tell the truth, squash the dream, and stop with the second chances."

Adam S McHugh Quotes

"One of the most unexpected findings of my research was that introverted pastors felt very comfortable preaching, irrespective of congregation size. Many of them actually considered it their biggest strength and favorite part of the job. They found that their natural tendencies toward study, scholarship and writing translated into effective preaching and teaching."

"She stayed beside me until I slept, waveringly, brilliantly, hooded in diaphanous scarlet, and occasionally she left an imperative written in lipstick on my dusty windowpane.

Quotes About Metaphysical Death

"Consider the Koran, for example; this wretched book was sufficient to start a world-religion, to satisfy the metaphysical needs of countless millions for twelve hundred years, to become the basis of their morality and of a remarkable contempt for death, and also to inspire them to bloody wars and the most extensive conquests. Much may be lost in translation, but I have not been able to discover in it one single idea of value." - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

Quotes About Trading Goods

"Money is the barometer of a societys virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors–when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws dont protect you against them, but protect them against you–when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice–you may know that your society is doomed. Money is so noble a medium that does not compete with guns and it does not make terms with brutality. It will not permit a country to survive as half-property, half-loot" - Author: Ayn Rand

A silence that had death in it. ("The Numbers Up")" - Author: Cornell Woolrich
