Justin Ordonez Quotes

"Outside, the sun shines. Inside, theres only darkness. The blackness is hard to describe, as its more than symptoms. Its a nothing that becomes everything there is. And what one sees is only a fraction of the trauma inflicted."

Quotes About Hillel

"He talked about luck and fate and numbers coming up, yet he never ventured a nickel at the casinos because he knew the house had all the percentages. And beneath his pessimism, his bleak conviction that all the machinery was rigged against him, at the bottom of his soul was a faith that he was going to outwit it, that by carefully watching the signs he was going to know when to dodge and be spared. It was fatalism with a loophole, and all you had to do to make it work was never miss a sign. Survival by coordination, as it were. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who can see it coming and jump aside. Like a frog evading a shillelagh in a midnight marsh." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Joining Together

"The word "religion" has been hi-jacked and debased by the priests of faiths like these, until now it has become a dirty word amongst intelligent, right-thinking people in the Western world. The word "religion" springs from roots meaning piety, the Latin religio, the opposite idea to negligens, negligent, uncaring, unaware. It also springs from a root meaning to join together things that are separate, which in fact is the same meaning as the word "yoga" (compare the English word yoke, which ties oxen together, for example). So religion is a word which describes the process of becoming aware and unified, of joining together all things which are diverse; it is the union of body and spirit, self and not-self, human and god." - Author: Rodney Orpheus

Quotes About Love Is

"Love is a response to values. The amoralists actual self-appraisal is revealed in his abnormal need to be loved (but not in the rational sense of the word)—to be "loved for himself," i.e., causelessly. James Taggart reveals the nature of such a need: "I dont want to be loved for anything. I want to be loved for myself—not for anything I do or have or say or think. For myself—not for my body or mind or words or works or actions." (Atlas Shrugged.) When his wife asks: "But then . . . what is yourself?" he has no answer." - Author: Ayn Rand

Quotes About Best Friends Like Family

"Its like they say about soldiers coming back from war. People all around you are dying. Really dying, Eric. You go in for a weeks chemotherapy and youre in a ward with people who are really, actually dying, there and then and doing their best to come to terms with it. When the weeks up, you go home and you see your family and your friends and everythings normal and familiar. Its too much. You think - one world cant possibly hold both these lives and you feel like youre going to go crazy when you realise the world is that big and it can fill with the most terrible things whenever it wants to." - Author: Steven Hall

Quotes About Hedge Funds

"Overwinding happens when hedge funds destroy companies by attempting to leverage derivatives against otherwise productive long-term assets." - Author: Douglas Rushkoff

Quotes About Libertarianism

"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals — if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is." - Author: Ronald Reagan

Quotes About Figurative

"But insensate Time is nothing if not cruel and heartless. It corrodes then destroys, so that the man you literally and figuratively looked up to with your chubby face, who scooped you up to cross the street and patted you on the head to laughter, will later look through you from a crooked hospital bed then blindly up at you while wearing makeup in a bargain casket. The people who now surround you generating warmth will disappear leaving only an empty chill; the body you own and the brain it houses will malfunction. And sometimes, especially in Boxing, a twenty four year old can become a man overnight." - Author: Sergio De La Pava

Quotes About Moral Obligation

"Since 1945, when Jesus granted America air superiority, we have bombed Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Lebanon, Granada, Panama, Iraq, Serbia, Somalia, Bosnia, The Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and Yemen. And Yemen only because the tenth one was free. How did we inherit this moral obligation of bringing justice to the world via death from above? Are we Zeus?It doesnt make any sense. Our schools are crumbling and we wanna teach everyone else a lesson." - Author: Bill Maher

Quotes About Same Old Same Old

"The use of drugs is not an effective means of facilitating real escape. It merely gives that erroneous and illusive impression. Well, illusive with an I and elusive with an E. At best, narcotics do no more than promote bonhomie and give you a temporary taste of what freedom might be like; and drugs take you into another sub-level of, or sub-culture in, the same old game. The same old game, but with additional consequences. And at worst, well ... suffice it to say that you really, really do not want to go there." - Author: H.M. Forester

Everything. And miraculously he still likes me.""Likes? Girl, he head-over-heels-freaking-loves you.""Its mutual!" - Author: Kiersten White
