Dalit Orbach Quotes

"The cold rationalism simply covers for raw, wounded emotion. The more driven people are by the mind, the more they feel and further encode their feelings. The thickness of the tarpaulin cover is as the size of the emotion."

Charlie Crist Quotes

"As a former lifelong Republican, it pains me to tell you that todays Republicans - and their standard-bearers, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan - just arent up to the task. Theyre beholden to my way or the highway bullies, indebted to billionaires who bankroll ads and allergic to the very idea of compromise."

Quotes About Origin Of Life

"The attempt made in recent decades by secularist thinkers to disengage the moral principles of western civilization from their scripturally based religious context, in the assurance that they could live a life of their own as "humanistic" ethics, has resulted in our "cut flower culture." Cut flowers retain their original beauty and fragrance, but only so long as they retain the vitality that they have drawn from their now-severed roots; after that is exhausted, they wither and die. So with freedom, brotherhood, justice, and personal dignity — the values that form the moral foundation of our civilization. Without the life-giving power of the faith out of which they have sprung, they possess neither meaning nor vitality." - Author: Will Herberg

Quotes About I Gave You My Heart

"His eyes were a warm brown, gentle but intense. "You know...I never gave you a good-bye kiss."It was hard to breathe. "Oh. Thats right.""I was supposed to do that so you wouldnt be lying." ...He leaned toward me gradually, as though giving me time to change my mind. I shut my eyes and let his lips come down on mine. Hudson wasnt in a hurry to say good-bye. The kiss was slow, caressing. All the bumps of the road and the sway of the carriage seemed to fade away, replaced by the beating of my heart. I didnt remember putting my free hand around his neck, but it was there somehow, twining through his hair. His arm moved from the back of the seat to my shoulders. I liked the feel of his arm around me. I felt enveloped, cared for. When he lifted his head from mine, my mind was spinning. I blinked at him. "Well, you certainly have a way with good-byes." - Author: Janette Rallison

Quotes About Hogging

"And I dont know, it is one thing to look out a window, but when you are Out, actually Out, that is something very powerful, and how embarrassing was that, because I could not help it, I went down flat on my gut checking out those flowers, and the feeling of the one I chose was like the silk on that Hermes jacket I could never seem to get Reserved because Vance was always hogging it, except the flower was even better, it being very smooth and built in like layers? With the outside layer being yellow, and inside that a white thing like a bell, and inside the white bell-like thing were fifteen (I counted) smaller bell-like red things, and inside each red thing was an even smaller orange two-dingly-thing combo." - Author: George Saunders

Quotes About Pedestal

"My friends, dont idolize hardship. What you idolize is what your heart will look for and what your heart looks for is what you will have. And dont capitalize on misfortune, because you will always seek out to have capital! Throw away that pride! Dont put sorrow on a pedestal! If you ask me if I would rather have had my sorrows or not, I will tell you that no, I would rather have not had any of them! In the blink of an eye, I would rid myself of them! I have no pride. I dont rely on hardships and sorrows to mold me into someone. I dont allow myself to be dictated. When hardship and sorrow come knocking, saying "We are responsible for who you are today, let us in!" Im going to say, in a split second, "No youre not! Go away, I dont owe you anything!" - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About Art And Education

"The day of my departure at length arrived. Clerval spent the last evening with us. He had endeavoured to persuade his father to permit him to accompany me and to become my fellow student, but in vain. His father was a narrow-minded trader, and saw idleness and ruin in the aspirations and ambition of his son. Henry deeply felt the misfortune of being debarred from a liberal education. He said little, but when he spoke I read in his kindling eye and in his animated glance a restrained but firm resolve not to be chained to the miserable details of commerce." - Author: Mary Shelley

Quotes About Leaving Work

"If you worked out enough, maybe the man would too. Maybe you would be able to work it out together, as if the two of you were a puzzle that could be solved; otherwise, one of you, most likely the man, taking his addictive body with him and leaving you with bad withdrawal, which you could counteract by exercise. If you didnt work it out it was because one of you had the wrong attitude." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Living A Fruitful Life

"Foretold through memories I remember what dangers I was warned of if lived by ways of sinning. That by living a fruitful life with an open mind to love all people would bring me to a place of peaceful tranquility. I wonder if these are all lies. All of them." - Author: Nicholas A. McGirr
