Brand Blanshard Quotes

"...reality is a system, completely ordered and fully intelligible, with which thought in its advance is more and more identifying itself. We may look at the growth of knowledge … as an attempt by our mind to return to union with things as they are in their ordered wholeness…. and if we take this view, our notion of truth is marked out for us. Truth is the approximation of thought to reality … Its measure is the distance thought has travelled … toward that intelligible system … The degree of truth of a particular proposition is to be judged in the first instance by its coherence with experience as a whole, ultimately by its coherence with that further whole, all comprehensive and fully articulated, in which thought can come to rest."

Neil Sheehan Quotes

Paul J McAuley Quotes

"Absolute scientific truth was like the speed of light, a value which could be approached but never reached."

Roland Gift Quotes

"I think Im actually quite a materialistic person, I value what it takes to make a car or build a nice house. Money does change things, but how it changes people depends on how they react to it."

Wu Chengen Quotes

Miles Coverdale Quotes

"It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is spoken or written, but of whom and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after."

David Bowie Quotes

"Strangely, some songs you really dont want to write. I didnt like writing Heathen. There was something so ominous and final about it. It was early in the morning, the sun was rising and through the windows I could see two deer grazing down below in the field. In the distance a car was driving slowly past the reservoir and these words were just streaming out and there were tears running down my face. But I couldnt stop, they just flew out. Its an odd feeling, like something else is guiding you, although forcing your hand is more like it."

Jeff Davidson Quotes

"A study at Cornell University found that low-level noise both lowered job motivation and increased stress levels. It appears as well that an open-office type of environment can contribute to musculoskeletal problems such as a stiff back or tense neck and even heart disease due to increased levels of epinephrine, a stress hormone."

Pavan Choudary Quotes

"Choose your own mental state, rather than letting the environment govern it. Be a thermostat, not a thermometer."

Birdy Quotes

Quotes About Healing Relationships

"Abolition is not some disstant future but something we create in every moment when we say no to the traps of empire and yes to the nourishing possibilities dreamed of and practiced by our ancestors and friends. Every time we insist on accessible and affirming health care, safe and quality education, meaningful and secure employment, loving and healing relationships, and being our full and whole selves, we are doing abolition. Abolition is about breaking down things that oppress and building up things that nourish. Abolition is the practice of transformation in the here and now and the ever after." - Author: Eric A. Stanley

Quotes About Pictures And Life

"I asked Geertrui the other day what she thought love is-real love, true love. She said that for her real love is observing another person and being observed by another person with complete attention. If shes right, you only have to look at the pictures Rembrandt painted of Titus, and there are quite a lot, to see that they loved each other. Because that is what youre seeing. Complete attention, one of the other..."but in that case," he said, speaking the words as the thought came to him, "all art is love, because all art is about looking closely, isnt it? Looking closely at whats being painted.""The artist looking closely while he paints, the viewer looking closely at what has been painted. I agree. All true art, yes. Painting, Writing-literature-also. I think it is. And bad art is a failure to observe with complete attention. So, you see why I like the history of art. Its the study of how to observe life with complete attention. Its the history of love." - Author: Aidan Chambers

Quotes About Six Sigma

Quotes About Regret And Making Mistakes

"Life is messy, Ren. Its not easy and its definitely not for the timid. Everyone has a past. Things that stab them right between the eyes. Old grudges. Old shame. Regrets that steal your sleep and leave you awake until you fear for your own sanity. Betrayals that make your soul scream so loud you wonder why no one else hears it. In the end, we are all alone in that private hell. But life isnt about learning to forgive those who have hurt you or forgetting the past. Its about learning to forgive yourself for being human and making mistakes. Yes, people disappoint us all the time. But the harshest lessons come when we disappoint ourselves. When we put our trust and our hearts into the hands of the wrong person and they do us wrong. And while we may hate them for what they did, the one we hate most is ourself for allowing them into our private circle. How could I have been so stupid? How could I let them deceive me? We all go through that. Its humanitys brotherhood of misery." - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Mood In Literature

"How I envy those clerks who go by to their offices in the morning! Theres the days work cut out for them; no question of mood and feeling; they have just to work at something, and when the evening comes, they have earned their wages, and they are free to rest and enjoy themselves. What an insane thing it is to make literature ones only means of support! When the most trivial accident may at any time prove fatal to ones power of work for weeks or months. No, that is the unpardonable sin! To make a trade of an art! I am rightly served for attempting such a brutal folly." - Author: George Gissing

Quotes About Cocktail

"What I said to God through my gasping sobs was something like this: Hello, God. How are you? Im Liz. Its nice to meet you.

But we work with what we know in this life, and these are the words I always use at the beginning of a relationship. In fact, it was all I could do to stop myself from saying, "Ive always been a big fan of your work.." lol" - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
