John Talmage Mathis Quotes

"Is it really necessary to reward the CEO with several million dollars? Why isnt it logical or common sense to pay the minimum-wage employee another quarter, give a quarterly fifty-dollar bonus, or even provide a two-hundred-dollar gas gift card?"

Tamar Adler Quotes

"First, an egg is not an egg is not an egg. I dont know what to call the things that are produced by hens crowded into dirty cages, their beaks snipped, tricked into laying constantly. Whatever they are, they are only edible in the sense that we can cram anything down if we need to; their secrets merit airing, but not eating."

Quotes About Being Played By A Man

"I dodged him for a few months with excuses about not being able to, not having the time to, not being bothered to tape it. When I was out of sensible excuses, I played the race card and told Paul Fine straight: "Taping the album for you is selling out to the white man, letting him have our music. Nah, man. For us by us..." "But youre not black.""Fuck you, Fine. Im politically black from an oppressed race. Dont speak to me about no race politics or Ill lynch you like you done to my people.""Im Jewish...""Whatever man. I aint got no tapes." - Author: Nikesh Shukla

Quotes About Life Being Too Short To Waste Time

"Most of what passes for legitimate entertainment is inferior or foolish and only caters to or exploits peoples weaknesses. Avoid being one of the mob who indulges in such pastimes. Your life is too short and you have important things to do. Be discriminating about what images and ideas you permit into your mind. If you yourself dont choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will, and their motives may not be the highest. It is the easiest thing in the world to slide imperceptibly into vulgarity. But theres no need for that to happen if you determine not to waste your time and attention on mindless pap." - Author: Epictetus

Quotes About Maksiat

"Sesungguhnya kebaikan (ketaatan kepada Allah) itu merupakan keceriaan di wajah, cahaya di hati, kelapangan pada rezeki, dan kecintaan di hati manusia. Adapun keburukan (kemaksiatan) merupakan kemuraman di wajah, kegelapan di hati, kelemahan di badan, dan kebencian di dalam hati manusia." - Author: Ibnu Abbas radhiyallaahu anhu

Quotes About Shattered Dreams

"Boys are found everywhere- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerated them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket. A boy is a magical creature- you can lock out of your workshop, but you cant lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you cant get him out of your mind. Might as well give up- he is your captor, your jailor, your boss and your master- a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words- Hi, Dad!" - Author: Alan Beck

Quotes About Eros

"Es igual que una raíz: por pequeña que sea la parte que aflora a la superficie, si tiramos de ella, no para de salir. La conciencia humana vive en hondas tinieblas. Es enrevesada, compleja… Hay demasiados elementos incomprensibles. Sólo cada uno conoce sus verdaderos motivos. Incluso puede ser que no los conozca." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Maintenance

"The application of this knife, the division of the world into parts and the building of this structure, is something everybody does. All the time we are aware of millions of things around us - these changing shapes, these burning hills, the sound of the engine, the feel of the throttle, each rock and weed and fence post and piece of debris beside the road - aware of these things but not really conscious of them unless there is something unusual or unless they reflect something we are predisposed to see. We could not possibly be conscious of these things and remember all of them because our mind would be so full of useless details we would be unable to think. From all this awareness we must select, and what we select and calls consciousness is never the same as the awareness because the process of selection mutates it. We take a handful of sand from the endless landscape of awareness around us and call that handful of sand the world." -Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" - Author: Robert M. Pirsig

I know youre dealing with stuff but you cannot ask him to wait forever! Unless of course, youre okay with him pulling away.""What if it doesnt work out? What if it ends up like you and Javier?""Well at least we gave it a shot. And so it didnt work out, so what? Now, we can move on give or take the occasional booty call.""I just dont wanna lose what we have, you know?""Girl please! What exactly do you have, really?""A friendship.""No. What you and I have is a friendship. What you and castle have is a holding pattern. How long can you circle before the fuel runs out?" - Author: Richard Castle

Quotes About Clever Minds

"I am not worried about pleasing clever minds or fashionable people. In every period there will be men fated to be governed by the opinions of their century, their country, and their society. For that very reason, a freethinker or philosopher today would have been nothing but a fanatic at the time of the League.* One must not write for such readers, if one wishes to live beyond ones own age." - Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau
