Marquis De Condorcet Quotes

"Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another."

Chesterton Quotes

"Critics are much madder than poets... Poetry is sane because it floats easily in an infinite sea; reason seeks to cross the infinite sea, and so make it finite. The result is mental exhaustion, like the physical exhaustion of Mr. Holbein. To accept everything is an exercise, to understand everything a strain. The poet only desires exaltation and expansion, a world to stretch himself in. The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits."

Henry De Montherlant Quotes

"Il y a en moi une exaltation et une passion qui ont besoin du recours à Dieu, même si je ne crois pas en Dieu."

Tahir Shah Quotes

"Any man who has ever led an army, an expedition, or a group of Boy Scouts has sadism in his bones."

Howard Coble Quotes

"An indictment is not a conviction."

Sara Miles Quotes

"It doesnt promise to solve or erase suffering but to transform it, pledging that by loving one another, even through pain, we will find more life. And it insists that by opening ourselves to strangers, the despised or frightening or unintelligible other, we will see more and more of the holy, since, without exception, all people are one body: Gods."

Barbara Samuel Quotes

"She wanted him. Not in the sweet way of poetry, though there was that music in the symmetry of his body, in the careful meshing of bone and sinew and flesh that made him.Her want was raw. Physical. She felt it in the palms of her hands and the flesh of her lips and the heaviness of her breasts.In her life, shed been hungry, and thirsty. Shed needed sleep. She had never, in her life, needed to touch a man."

Robin Williams Quotes

"Hunter Patch Adams: "You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person Ill guarantee youll win."

Kay Kenyon Quotes

"Every man wishes to be king." Her hair snapped about her, buzzing."

Marie De France Quotes

"Great were the lamentation and the cry when the news of this mischance was noised about the city. Such a tumult of mourning was never before heard, for the whole city was moved."

Quotes About Appropriate Life

"But you were only an idea to me before, an abstraction that lived in my mind and called forth its appropriate response. It was that abstraction I stabbed. But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony - Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy? If we threw away these rifles and this uniform you could be my brother just like Kat and Albert. Take twenty years of my life, comrade, and stand up - take more, for I do not know what I can even attempt to do with it now." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Quotes About Public Services

"Decades ago, women suffered through horrifying back-alley abortions. Or, they used dangerous methods when they had no other recourse. So when the Republican Party launched an all-out assault on womens health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services, we had to ask: Why is the GOP trying to send women back... to the back alley?" - Author: Lisa Edelstein

Quotes About Robots

"Robots are important also. If I don my pure-scientist hat, I would say just send robots; Ill stay down here and get the data. But nobodys ever given a parade for a robot. Nobodys ever named a high school after a robot. So when I don my public-educator hat, I have to recognize the elements of exploration that excite people. Its not only the discoveries and the beautiful photos that come down from the heavens; its the vicarious participation in discovery itself." - Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quotes About Gullible

"Unfortunately, as much as I am gullible, I also hate lying. I tend to tell the truth a lot... lying just isnt worth it. But I think Im guilty of telling people that Im 5 minutes away when really Im about 45 or an hour away." - Author: Monica Raymund

Quotes About Back Talkers

"At lunch I turned my phone on to check my messages. Georgia always sent me a few inane texts during the day, and sure enough there were two messages from her: one complaining about her physics teacher and a second, also obviously sent from her phone: I love you, baby. V.I wrote her back: I thought I told you to buzz off last night, you creep-o French stalker guy.Her response came back immediately: As if! Your beet-red cheeks this morning suggest otherwise ... liar! Youre so into him.I groaned and was about to turn my phone off when I saw that there was a third text from UNKNOWN. Clicking on it, I read: Can I pick you up from school? Same place, same time?I texted back: Howd you get my number?Called myself from your phone while you were in the restaurants bathroom last night. Warned you we were stalkers!" - Author: Amy Plum

Quotes About Epic Nights

"Mangled heroes from both sides of the nameless conflict lay scattered in comical disregard. Valiant and dignified death poses embody a fiction found in the epic poems of minstrels and bards; fanciful reflections lacking merit in warfare. Athen briefly wondered if the ghosts of the proud knights haunted the battlefield; staring down at their ridiculous corpses with embarrassment or plotting appropriate punishments for the scavengers ransacking their empty husks. A life of chivalry and honor apparently culminated in the soiling of greaves while lying face down in your comrades shit. The field reeked of more than just feces, blood, and vomit." - Author: Artemas Khan
