"In a world where competition thrives, comparison reigns and wants increase endlessly, satisfaction becomes infeasible lacking clarity."

Abiodun Oyewole Quotes

"America is a young dumb country and it needs all kinds of help. America is a dumb puppy with big teeth that bite and hurt. And we take care of America. We hold America to our bosom; we feed America, we make love to America. There wouldnt be an America if it wasnt for black people. So you have some dedicated black Americans who will die a million deaths to save America. And this is home for us. We dont know really about Africa. We talk it in a romantic sense, but America is it. And so, America is always going to be okay as long as black people dont totally lose their mind, cause well pick up the pieces and turn it into a new dance."

Amanda Carpenter Quotes

"Surely, she said, much quieter, more reasonable, surely youve been with other women?His glance at her was dry. What do you think?She looked away at random. I think that it appears we have a double standard, here. Men can have sex, women cant. Who, then, do the men have sex with?"

E M Forster Quotes

Martin Farquhar Tupper Quotes

"Look too on this poor planet of ours,Torn by the storms of mysterious powers,Evil contending with good from its birth,Wrenching in battle the heartstrings of earth,—Ah! what infinities circle us here,Strangeness and wonderment swathing the sphere!"

Charles Edward Montague Quotes

"The number of medals on an officers breast varies in inverse proportion to the square of the distance of his duties from the front line."

Lawrence M Krauss Quotes

"[I]n science we have to be particularly cautious about "why" questions. When we ask, "Why?" we usually mean "How?" If we can answer the latter, that generally suffices for our purposes. For example, we might ask: "Why is the Earth 93 million miles from the Sun?" but what we really probably mean is, "How is the Earth 93 million miles from the Sun?" That is, we are interested in what physical processes led to the Earth ending up in its present position. "Why" implicitly suggests purpose, and when we try to understand the solar system in scientific terms, we do not generally ascribe purpose to it."

Quotes About What Art Is

"The Mexicans had fired the first shot. But they had done what the American government wanted, according to Colonel Hitchcock, who wrote in his diary, even before those first incidents: I have said from the first that the United States are the aggressors. . . . We have not one particle of right to be here. . . . It looks as if the government sent a small force on purpose to bring on a war, so as to have a pretext for taking California and as much of this country as it chooses, for, whatever becomes of this army, there is no doubt of a war between the United States and Mexico. . . . My heart is not in this business . . . but, as a military man, I am bound to execute orders." - Author: Howard Zinn

Quotes About Not Taking Action

"In the heat of leadership, with the adrenaline pumping, it is easy to convince yourself that you are not subject to the normal human frailties that can defeat ordinary mortals. You begin to act as if you are indestructible. But the intellectual, physical, and emotional challenges of leadership are fierce. So, in addition to getting on the being and assess the tolls those changes are taking. If you dont, your seemingly indestructible self can self-destruct. This, by the way, is an ideal outcome for your foes-and even friends who oppose your initiative- because no one has to feel responsible for your downfall._________When you take "personal" attacks personally, you unwittingly conspire in one of the common ways you can be taken out of action-you make yourself the issue.Attacks may be personal, understand that they are basically attacks on positions you represent and the role you are seeking to play" - Author: Ronald A. Heifetz

Quotes About Summer Colds

"I love our summer game and its letters as much as the next man, and surely no less than my colleagues. I do not, however, repose much faith in its fiction. The short stories are fair to middling, and Conan Doyle, Wodehouse and Ian Peebles have contributed memorably, but my only previous novel-length experience, before the one under review, was of Maurice Moiseiwitschs A Sky-Blue Life (1953). This penny dreadful, when last I saw it, was windmilling out of my bedroom window. It was resuscitated in 2006 by the misguided folks at Coldspring. Avoid it." - Author: Rodney Ulyate

Quotes About Strong Faith In God

Quotes About Chowder

"I find it best to worry about the little things. Things that can be helped by being worried about. Such as the making of clam chowder, (..)coffee. The bigger stuff, well, you have to handle that as it faces you." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Love In Gaelic

"I hate a stupid man who cant talk to me, and I hate a clever man who talks me down. I dont like a man who is too lazy to make any effort to shine; but I particularly dislike the man who is always striving for effect. I abominate a humble man, but yet I love to perceive that a man acknowledges the superiority of my sex, and youth and all that kind of thing. . . A man who would tell me that I am pretty, unless he is over seventy, ought to be kicked out of the room. But a man who cant show me that he thinks me so without saying a word about it, is a lout." - Author: Anthony Trollope

Quotes About Sex And The City

"…sense of futility that comes from doing anything merely to prove to yourself that you can do it: having a child, climbing a mountain, making some sexual conquest, committing suicide.The marathon is a form of demonstrative suicide, suicide as advertising: it is running to show you are capable of getting every last drop of energy out of yourself, to prove it… to prove what? That you are capable of finishing. Graffiti carry the same message. They simply say: Im so-and-so and I exist! They are free publicity for existence.Do we continually have to prove to ourselves that we exist? A strange sign of weakness, harbinger of a new fanaticism for a faceless performance, endlessly self-evident." - Author: Jean Baudrillard

Quotes About Giving Your Heart Away

"Before your breaths pick up pace and our bodies are aching because everything were feeling is just making us want more and more and more of each other...until Im afraid Ill beg you not to ask me to slow down. So instead, I regrettably tear my mouth from yours and force myself away from your bed and you life up unto your elbows and look at me, disappointed, because you kind of wished I would have kept going, but at the same time youre relieved I didnt, because you know you would have given in. So instead of giving in, we just stare. We watch each other silently as my heart rate begins to slow down and your breaths are easier to catch and the insatiable need is still there, but our minds are clearer now that Im not pressed against you anymore. I turn around and walk to your window and leave without even saying goodbye, because we both know if either of us speaks...itll be the collective demise of our willpower and well cave. Well cave so hard." - Author: Colleen Hoover
