[I Feel As Though, If I Were To Extend My Hand Just A Little Toward The Pool Where The Ideas Ferment, I Could Grab At The Idea And Pull It Out Of The Pool And Onto The Floor Where Ideas Must Stand Before The Jury Of The Brain. There, It Must Present Itself, Still From The Pool, And A Bit Shivery Because New Ideas Are Not Given A Towel To Dry Off With, Towels Being Reserved For Proven Theories; New Ideas Are Simply Pulled And Stood Up, And Asked To Explain Themselves - Not A Very Pleasant Thing Really, Which Is Why So Many People Go Into The Room Where The Pool Is. The Exercise Is Exhausting Not To Mention A Bit Difficult To Watch, If You Are At All A Sympathetic Creature. What Was My Idea, Anyways?]

Quotes About Eldest Child

"It is through hearing stories about wicked stepmothers, lost children, good but misguided kings, wolves that suckle twin boys, youngest sons who receive no inheritance but must make their own way in the world, and eldest sons who waste their inheritance on riotous living and go into exile to live with the swine, that children learn or mislearn both what a child and what a parent is, what the cast of characters may be in the drama into which they have been born and what the ways of the world are." - Author: Alasdair MacIntyre

Quotes About Desejar

"Entendo que é possível olhar nos olhos de alguém e de súbito saber que a vida será impossível sem eles.

Quotes About Archery

"A certain man who was learning archery faced the target with two arrows in his hand. But his instructor said, A beginner ought never to have a second arrow; for as long as he relies upon the other, he will be careless with his first one. At each shot he ought to think that he is bound to settle it with this particular shaft at any cost. Doubtless he would not intentionally act foolishly before his instructor with one arrow, when he has but a couple. But, though he may not himself realize that he is being careless, his teacher knows it. You should bear this advice in mind on every occasion. (In the same way) he who follows the path of learning thinks confidently in the evening that the morning is coming, and in the morning that the evening is coming, and that he will then have plenty of time to study more carefully ; less likely still is he to recognize the waste of a single moment. How hard indeed is it to do a thing at once-now, the instant that you think of it !" - Author: Yoshida Kenkō

Quotes About Disgruntled

"Some nonreligious people are disgruntled by the word "faith," feeling that it has no connection to them. But we all have faith.

Husbands and wives, parents and children have faith in one another." - Author: Kentetsu Takamori

Quotes About Subjective Truth

"It is the question that is also asked by modern political theory: Can politics accept truth as a structural category? Or must truth, as something unattainable, be relegated to the subjective sphere, its place taken by an attempt to build peace and justice using whatever instruments are available to power? By relying on truth, does not politics, in view of the impossibility of attaining consensus on truth, make itself a tool of particular traditions that in reality are merely forms of holding on to power?And yet, on the other hand, what happens when truth counts for nothing? What kind of justice is then possible? Must there not be common criteria that guarantee real justice for all—criteria that are independent of the arbitrariness of changing opinions and powerful lobbies? Is it not true that the great dictatorships were fed by the power of the ideological lie and that only truth was capable of bringing freedom?" - Author: Pope Benedict XVI

Quotes About House And Home

"She read all sorts of things: travels, and sermons, and old magazines. Nothing was so dull that she couldnt get through with it. Anything really interesting absorbed her so that she never knew what was going on about her. The little girls to whose houses she went visiting had found this out, and always hid away their story-books when she was expected to tea. If they didnt do this, she was sure to pick one up and plunge in, and then it was no use to call her, or tug at her dress, for she neither saw nor heard anything more, till it was time to go home." - Author: Susan Coolidge
