Daniel Kofman Quotes

"First Afghanistan, now Iraq. So whos next? Syria? North Korea? Iran? Where will it all end? If these illegal interventions are permitted to continue, the implication seems to be, pretty soon, horror of horrors, no murderously repressive regimes might remain."

Mralte Quotes

"People say, Its hard to forgive...et al. I think its much harder to live peacefully. So, forgive and focus on living peacefully."

Sven Birkerts Quotes

"What reading does, ultimately, is keep alive the dangerous and exhilarating idea that a life is not a sequence of lived moments, but a destiny...the time of reading, the time defined by the authors language resonating in the self, is not the worlds time, but the souls. The energies that otherwise tend to stream outward through a thousand channels of distraction are marshaled by the cadences of the prose; they are brought into focus by the fact that it is an ulterior, and entirely new, world that the reader has entered. The free-floating self--the self we diffusely commune with while driving or walking or puttering in the kitchen--is enlisted in the work of bringing the narrative to life. In the process, we are able to shake off the habitual burden of insufficient meaning and flex our deeper natures."

Sharde Richardson Quotes

"Hurt shouldnt pile up like this inside of someone. No one should suffocate beneath pain on top of pain. You should have time to breathe, time to scream it out until it doesnt exist anymore."

JI Willett Quotes

"Do you think we find Jesus, or does He find us?"

Giorgio Morandi Quotes

Salva Kiir Mayardit Quotes

"People should not judge me on what they hear. Let them wait and see me in action. Then they will see how I serve my people."

Yanko Tsvetkov Quotes

"Die Geschichte ist ein seltsames Ding. Sie hat die erstaunliche Eigenschaft, uns unser eigenes Bild zu zeigen, wenn wir uns über ihre tiefen, geheimnisvollen Wasser beugen. Viele von uns ertrinken darin wie der mythologische Narziss, dessen Vernarrtheit in seine eigene Schönheit größer war als sein Wille zu überleben."

Jan Schakowsky Quotes

"Community health centers do a great deal with limited resources. They provide critical medical care services to many who would otherwise have no other place to go or would end up in an emergency room."

Jane Mersky Leder Quotes

"Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesnt seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far weve traveled."

Quotes About Human Nature Evil

"Depend upon it, you see but half. You see the evil, but you do not see the consolation. There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere—and those evil–minded observers, dearest Mary, who make much of a little, are more taken in and deceived than the parties themselves." - Author: Jane Austen

"I will never apologize to you," she snapped. "And you may go straight to Hades."He hadnt expected her to apologize, yet he couldnt help suggesting it every so often. "Very well. Upstairs, first door on the left. Ill be in Hades, if you should require my services." - Author: Suzanne Enoch

Quotes About Being Snide

"People in Africa have a well-deserved reputation for being happy. This may explain why: there is no word in Swahili for "sarcasm" therefore Africans have no concept of saying something and having it mean a playfully snide version of the opposite." - Author: Will Bowen

Quotes About Pasternak

"Ever since the days when such formidable mediocrities as Galsworthy, Dreiser, Tagore, Maxim Gorky, Romain Rolland and Thomas Mann were being accepted as geniuses, I have been perplexed and amused by fabricated notions about so-called "great books." That, for instance, Manns asinine "Death in Venice," or Pasternaks melodramatic, vilely written "Dr. Zhivago," or Faulkners corn-cobby chronicles can be considered "masterpieces" or at least what journalists term "great books," is to me the sort of absurd delusion as when a hypnotized person makes love to a chair. My greatest masterpieces of twentieth century prose are, in this order: Joyces "Ulysses"; Kafkas "Transformation"; Belys "St. Petersburg," and the first half of Prousts fairy tale, "In Search of Lost Time." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Informers

"Our Press and our schools cultivate Chauvinism, militarism, dogmatism, conformism and ignorance. The arbitrary power of the Government is unlimited, and unexampled in history; freedom of the Press, of opinion and of movement are as thoroughly exterminated as though the proclamation of the Rights of Man had never been. We have built up the most gigantic police apparatus, with informers made a national institution, and the most refined scientific system of political and mental torture. We whip the groaning masses of the country towards a theoretical future happiness, which only we can." - Author: Arthur Koestler

Quotes About Individual Growth

"It is a relationship that is flexible enough to allow for change and that is constantly being renegotiated in the light of changing needs, consensus in decision-making, acceptance and encouragement of individual growth, and openness to new possibilities for growth." - Author: Tristan Taormino
