Quotes About Preachiness

"I like the relaxed way in which the Japanese approach religion. I think of myself as basically a moral person, but Im definitely not religious, and Im very tired of the preachiness and obsession with other peoples behavior characteristic of many religious people in the United States. As far as I could tell, theres nothing preachy about Buddhism. I was in a lot of temples, and I still dont know what Buddhists believe, except that at one point Kunio said If you do bad things, you will be reborn as an ox.This makes as much sense to me as anything I ever heard from, for example, the Reverend Pat Robertson." - Author: Dave Barry

Quotes About Feeling Useful

"Is a PLONGEURS work really necessary to civilization? We have a feeling that it must be honest work, because it is hard and disagreeable, and we have made a sort of fetish of manual work. We see a man cutting down a tree, and we make sure that he is filling a social need, just because he uses his muscles; it does not occur to us that he may only be cutting down a beautiful tree to make room for a hideous statue. I believe it is the same with a PLONGEUR. He earns his bread in the sweat of his brow, but it does not follow that he is doing anything useful; he may be only supplying a luxury which, very often, is no luxury at all." - Author: George Orwell

Quotes About Big Brother Watching You

"Big Brother isnt watching. Hes singing and dancing. Hes pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brothers busy holding your attention every moment youre awake. Hes making sure youre always distracted. Hes making sure youre fully absorbed. Hes making sure your imagination withers. Until its as useful as your appendix. Hes making sure your attention is always filled. And this being fed, its worse than being watched. With the world always filling you, no one has to worry about whats in your mind. With everyones imagination atrophied, no one will ever be a threat to the world." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

Quotes About Persian Language

"The revolt in Asia Minor was snugged out in 494, and the Athenians realized that they had acquired a dangerous enemy. Darius Is first attempt at invasion in 492 was abortive: a huge storm wrecked his fleet. In 491 the Persians demanded earth and water --signs of submission--from the Aegean islands and mainland cities. Many submitted. Athens and Sparta not only stood firm but murdered the Persian ambassadors. The Athenians put them on trial and killed both the ambassadors and their translator for offenses against the Greek language; the Spartans simply thew them down a well." - Author: Alan Ryan
