"You must never actually cheat the customer, even if you can. You must make her happy and satisfied, so she will come back."

Clark H Pinnock Quotes

"Election has nothing to do with the eternal salvation of individuals but refers instead to Gods way of saving nations. It was a major mistake of the Reformation to have decided to follow Augustine in this matter, taking election to refer to grace and salvation. It manages to make bad news out of good news. It casts a deep shadow over the character of God. At it worst, it can lead to awful consequences in terms of pride, arrogance, superiority, and intolerance as the ideology of election takes hold. It causes the church to become, not a sign of the unity of humanity in the love of God, but the sign of favorites in the midst of the enemies of God."

Robert Hofstadter Quotes

"Not only has this subject been long associated with the ideas of thinking men over the ages but its practical importance is attested to by the huge resources of men and material thrown into this type of work."

Susan Pease Banitt Quotes

"Traumatic events, by definition, overwhelm our ability to cope. When the mind becomes flooded with emotion, a circuit breaker is thrown that allows us to survive the experience fairly intact, that is, without becoming psychotic or frying out one of the brain centers. The cost of this blown circuit is emotion frozen within the body. In other words, we often unconsciously stop feeling our trauma partway into it, like a movie that is still going after the sound has been turned off. We cannot heal until we move fully through that trauma, including all the feelings of the event."

Bob Weinstein Quotes

"Dont let your fear paralyze you. Prepare yourself not only technically, but also emotionally."

You offer him a last fuck and he plunges right in headfirst. I dont get it.‘Hes a Jock, a common man with common needs, he doesnt want fame and fortune all he wants is full belly and an empty ball sack. My father always said find the right stick son and give the fucker a poke."

Quotes About Vise

"Kloe i Baltasar su imali svoj sopstsveni kodeks casti: likvidirali su samo sljam i cistili svijet od ubica, gmazova, licemerja, fanatika, smrknutih dogmata i svakojakih kretena koji jos vise upropascuavaju svijet u ime zastave, bogova, jezika, rasa ili bilo kakvog drugog djubreta kojim mogu da prekriju svoju pohlepu i svoju bedu. Za mene su oni bili krivovjerni heroji, kao sto svi stvari heroji i jesu." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Paradise

"When a man dies, his wife is burned alive with him, but if the wife dies before her husband, the man does not suffer the same fate. If a man dies before marriage, he is given a posthumous wife. The women passionately want to be burned because they believe they will enter paradise." - Author: Masudi

Quotes About Famous Outcasts

"If they had had a different neighbour, one less sel-absorbed and more concerned for others, a man of normal, charitable instincts, their desperate state would not have gone unnoticed, their distress-signals would have been heard, and perhaps they would have been rescued by now. Certainly they appeared utterly depraved, corrupt, vile and odious; but it is rare for those who have sunk so low not to be degraded in the process, and there comes a point, moreover, where the unfortunate and the infamous are grouped together, merged in a single, fateful world. They are les misérables - the outcasts, the underdogs. And who is to blame? Is it not the most fallen who have most need for charity?" - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Blue Green Eyes

Quotes About Desperately

"Several things ran through my head as I watched this silent ballet: First, I was running low on pears, my favorite morning fruit. Second, I, as a woman, am much smarter than men, I having displayed foresight this male apparently lacked in regards to trash day. And finally, I desperately needed to see more of this man in his boxers." - Author: Benjamin R. Smith

Quotes About Edison Failures

"When Marconi suggested the possibility of wireless transmission of sound (the radio),he was committed to a mental institution. But people like Lincoln, Edison, and Marconi were strongly motivated. So they didnt give up. They somehow knew that the only real failure is the one from which we learn nothing. They seemed to go on the assumption that there is no failure greater than the failure of not trying, and so they continued to try in the face of repeated failures." - Author: John Powell

Quotes About Painful Decisions

"Were only given one life, and its the one we live, she thought; how painful now, to realize that wasnt true, that you would have different lives, depending on how brave you were, and how ready. Love came to her that day - she was twenty-two - and wanted to take her, and she said no.Why are we asked to make the most important decisions of our lives when we are so young, and so prone to mistakes? Happiness came that day - she knew nothing - and asked her to say yes and she did not. Why did she assume it would come back again, when there were so many others waiting for it to visit?" - Author: Samuel Park

Quotes About Ruffians

"Beware of books. They are more than innocent assemblages of paper and ink and string and glue. If they are any good, they have the spirit of the author within. Authors are rogues and ruffians and easy lays. They are gluttons for sweets and savories. They devour life and always want more. They have sap, spirit, sex. Books are panderers. The Jews are not wrong to worship books. A real book has pheromones and sprouts grass through its cover." - Author: Erica Jong

Quotes About Brice

"I was an actor as a kid in Boston. Then I went to art school with Brice Marden, the Massachusetts College of Art. So the hybrid of being an actor and artist is a director." - Author: Arne Glimcher
