CP Snow Quotes

"The division of our culture is making us more obtuse than we need be: we can repair communications to some extent: but, as I have said before, we are not going to turn out men and women who understand as much of their world as Piero della Francesca did of his, or Pascal, or Goethe. With good fortune, however, we can educate a large proportion of our better minds so that they are not ignorant of the imaginative experience, both in the arts and in science, nor ignorant either of the endowments of applied science, of the remediable suffering of most of their fellow humans, and of the responsibilities which, once seen, cannot be denied."

Alvares De Azevedo Quotes

"Se na vida há uma coisa real e divina é a arte - e na arte se há um raio do céu é na música. Na música que nos vibra as cordas da alma, que nos acorda da modorra da existência a alma embotada. Oh! é tão doce sentir a voz vaporosa que trina, que nos enleva - e que parece que nos faz desfalecer, amar, e morrer!"

Bibhu Mohapatra Quotes

"My engineer dad is where my technical acumen comes from. I remember him taking me to the factories to see how what works. Often he used to open up his motorbike to fix things and I saw how the wheels worked. His car used to be open for dissection very regularly. All this taught me and inspired me to look beyond what I could see on the skin."

Quotes About Unjustly Accused

"communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. In consequence Im inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores. The abnormal mind is quick to detect and attach itself to this quality when it appears in a normal person, and so it came about that in college I was unjustly accused of being a politician, because I was privy to the secret griefs of wild, unknown men. Most of the confidences were unsought" - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Discrimination

"To believe in a child is to believe in the future. Through their aspirations they will save the world. With their combined knowledge the turbulent seas of hate and injustice will be calmed. They will champion the causes of lifes underdogs, forging a society without class discrimination. They will supply humanity with music and beauty as it has never known. They will endure. Towards these ends I pledge my lifes work. I will supply the children with tools and knowledge to overcome the obstacles. I will pass on the wisdom of my years and temper it with patience. I shall impact in each child the desire to fulfill his or her dream. I shall teach." - Author: Henry James

Quotes About Nikah

"Ketika Ibuk menikah, ia dan Bapak hanya berbekal keberanian untuk menjalani hidup bersama. Mereka tidak memiliki perencanaan bagaimana membesarkan anak, di mana mereka akan tidur kelak, apalagi tentang gizi atau pendidikan. Sama sekali tidak terbersit di benak mereka." - Author: Iwan Setyawan

Quotes About Nationals

"To speak of ‘limits to growth under a capitalistic market economy is as meaningless as to speak of limits of warfare under a warrior society. The moral pieties, that are voiced today by many well-meaning environmentalists, are as naive as the moral pieties of multinationals are manipulative. Capitalism can no more be ‘persuaded to limit growth than a human being can be ‘persuaded to stop breathing. Attempts to ‘green capitalism, to make it ‘ecological, are doomed by the very nature of the system as a system of endless growth." - Author: Murray Bookchin

Quotes About Strangers Meeting

"Romance was different in her world. In our world. She believed it lived all around us. In the trees, the blue sky hiding behind rain clouds, snow flakes clinging to windshields, squirrels hiding their food, blades of grass catching drops from a misty morning, and in every person to walk the earth. Ella loved to sit on city benches and make up stories about passing strangers. Since meeting her my entire world changed. I always turned life into strands of color on an empty canvas. People blurred by like flashes of light. Just blurs. Then Ella walked into my life and everything slowed down. The blurs of color became people with stories. People with hearts. People. Like me." - Author: Marilyn Grey

Quotes About Embracing The Future

"We kissed, then, and the ardour of her kiss stole my breath away. I returned her passion with all the fervor I possessed. A lifetime of vows and heart-felt disciplines had prepared me well, for in that kiss I sealed with all my soul the fate before me, embracing a mystery clothed in warm and yielding female flesh. Holding only the moment, with neither thought nor care for the future, I kissed her, and drank deep the strong wine of desire." - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead

Quotes About Qualities Of A Friend

"As I have earlier noted, the most important things in life and in business cant be measured. The trite bromide If you can measure it, you can manage it has been a hindrance in the building a great real-world organization, just as it has been a hindrance in evaluating the real-world economy. It is character, not numbers, that make the world go ‘round. How can we possibly measure the qualities of human existence that give our lives and careers meaning? How about grace, kindness, and integrity? What value do we put on passion, devotion, and trust? How much do cheerfulness, the lilt of a human voice, and a touch of pride add to our lives? Tell me, please, if you can, how to value friendship, cooperation, dedication, and spirit. Categorically, the firm that ignores the intangible qualities that the human beings who are our colleagues bring to their careers will never build a great workforce or a great organization." - Author: John C. Bogle

Quotes About White Rooms

"Loretta folded her arms. She felt like a heroine in a movie, confronted by a jealous husband in a kitchen while outside the camera is aching to draw back and show a wonderland of adventures waiting for her—long, frantic rides on trains, landscapes of wounded soldiers, a lovely white desert across which a camel caravan draped voluptuously in veils moves slowly with a kind of mincing melancholy, the steamy jungles of India opening before British officers in white, young officers, the mysteries of English drawing-rooms cracking before the quick, humorless smirk of a wise young woman from America. . . ." - Author: Joyce Carol Oates
