[I Hope That Young People Will Also Look To Politics As A Vehicle To Not Only Have Their Voices Heard, But Actually To Be The Change Makers That They Want To See. They Are Disaffected, Understandably, But I Hope That Young People Will Not Only Turn Out To Vote But Also Run For Office.]

Roger E Olson Quotes

"Surely we can only come to understand each others beliefs by means of direct encounter and open, honest discussion. In the meantime, many free churches invite all believers in Jesus Christ to the Table for the sake of true spiritual unity that transcends intellectual differences of interpretation. Withholding sacramental sharing on the basis of disagreement about the nature of the Lords Supper seems odd to us. What two people think exactly alike about the act? We are not offended by Catholics closed Communion, but we find it odd and exclusive. It places intellectual understanding above fellowship among disciples of Jesus Christ."

Julian Short Quotes

"The poorer your self-esteem and the lower your self-confidence, the more easily negative feelings can overwhelm ordinary good sense."

Joris Karl Huysmans Quotes

"Goyas savage verve, his harsh, brutal genius, captivated Des Esseintes. On the other hand, the universal admiration his works had won rather put him off, and for years he had refrained from framing them, for fear that if he hung them up, the first idiot who saw them would might feel obliged to dishonour them with a few inanities and go into stereotyped ecstasies over them."

Ronald Biggs Quotes

"I kicked off... and things went on from there... down and down."

Philip Sington Quotes

"Old Prague was a story-book city caked in grime: ancient, soot-blackened. History lived in every detail: in the deerstalker rooftops and the blue-sparking trams. He wandered the streets in disbelief, photographing everything, images from Kafka crowding into his head. With the turn of every corner it came back to him: the special frisson you get behind enemy lines."

Lennox Lewis Quotes

"You can just fight one man at a time."

Tracy Weber Quotes

"Michael spoke slowly and sternly, as if scolding an obstinate child. "Kate, let me be very clear about this. You will not continue this murder investigation, under any circumstances. I forbid it." Michaels words were unequivocal, not to be challenged. He was man. He was in charge. He expected no argument. He was an idiot."

Julian Schnabel Quotes

"Theres been too much attention on marketing. Cant we just talk about the paintings?"

Michael Oakeshott Quotes

"In political activity . . . men sail a boundless and bottomless sea; there is neither harbour for shelter nor floor for anchorage, neither starting-place nor appointed destination. The enterprise is to keep afloat on an even keel."

Kim Hubbard Quotes

"I havent heard of anybody who wants to stop living on account of the cost."

Quotes About No It Alls

"At the Theatre: To the Lady Behind MeDear Madam, you have seen this play;I never saw it till today.You know the details of the plot,But, let me tell you, I do not.The author seeks to keep from meThe murderers identity,And you are not a friend of hisIf you keep shouting who it is.The actors in their funny wayHave several funny things to say,But they do not amuse me moreIf you have said them just before;The merit of the drama lies,I understand, in some surprise;But the surprise must now be smallSince you have just foretold it all.The lady you have brought with youIs, I infer, a half-wit too,But I can understand the pieceWithout assistance from your niece.In short, foul woman, it would suitMe just as well if you were mute;In fact, to make my meaning plain,I trust you will not speak again.And—may I add one human touch?—Dont breathe upon my neck so much." - Author: A.P. Herbert

Quotes About Over Indulging

"If 22 bushels (1,300 pounds) of rice and 22 bushels of winter grain are harvested from a quarter acre field, then the field will support five to ten people each investing an average of less than one hour of labour per day. But if the field were turned over to pasturage, or if the grain were fed to cattle, only one person could be supported per quarter acre. Meat becomes a luxury food when its production requires land which could provide food directly for human consumption. This has been shown clearly and definitely. Each person should ponder seriously how much hardship he is causing by indulging in food so expensively produced." - Author: Masanobu Fukuoka

Quotes About Deists

"The phrase Founding Fathers is a proper noun. It refers to a specific group: the delegates to the Constitutional Convention. There were other important players not in attendance, but these fifty-five made up the core. Among the delegates were twenty-eight Episcopalians, eight Presbyterians, seven Congregationalists, two Lutherans, two Dutch Reformed, two Methodists, two Roman Catholics, one unknown, and only three deists- Williamson, Wilson, and Franklin. This took place at a time when church membership usually entailed "sworn adherence to strict doctrinal creeds." This tally proves that 51 of 55 -a full 93 percent- of the members of the Constitutional Convention, the most influential group of men shaping the political underpinnings of our nation were Christians, not deists." - Author: Greg Koukl

Quotes About Immaculate

"Take sex, for instance.What do you want me to do with it?Try to be serious for a moment. Take the sex life of our father.[...]Even after a couple of brandies he felt extremely reluctant to discuss sex and his father. Its something Id rather not think about, he said. We all come into existence as a result of a momentary embrace by our parents which find impossible to imagine.

Quotes About Carling

Quotes About Convicts

Quotes About Intelligent Minds

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind." - Author: Edward L. Bernays

Quotes About Shouting

"One day in 1948 or 1949, the Brentwood County Mart, a shopping complex in an upscale neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was the scene of a slight disturbance that carried overtones of the most spectacular upheaval in twientieth-century music. Marta Feuchtwanger, wife of émigré novelist Lion Feuchtwanger, was examining grapefruit in the produce section when she heard a voice shouting German from the far end of the aisle. She looked up to see Arnold Schoenberg, the pioneer of atonal music and the codifier of twelve-tone composition, bearing down on her, with his bald pate and burning eyes. Decades later, in conversation with the writer Lawrence Weschler, Feuchtwanger could recall every detail of the encounter, including the weight of the grapefruit in her hand. "Lies, Frau Marta, lies!" Schoenberg was yelling. "You have to know, I never had syphilis!" - Author: Alex Ross
