"You cant be a victim and heal."

Countess Of Blessington Quotes

"Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart."

David Thomas Quotes

"Come tutti, convivo con un passato incompiuto. E questo passato incompiuto che mi impedisce di vivere in completa tranquillità. Cerco di vivere meglio che posso tra le gocce acide della malinconia o del risentimento e quelle, più dolci, della quiete. E questo passato incompiuto che fa del mio futuro una cosa sfocata e incerta in cui non proietto nulla. Credo che si cominci a invecchiare il giorno in cui si ha paura di invecchiare. E io non voglio invecchiare, perché non mi aspetto più niente dalla vita. Non dico che non mi capiteranno cose belle e forti, non cè motivo per cui io venga risparmiato, ma non spero più niente. Non ho più quei sogni che mi facevano venire voglia di continuare a vivere per poterli un giorno realizzare. Continuo semplicemente a correre, senza conoscere lesito della corsa. Non so cosa mi aspetta, e non lo voglio sapere."

Angela Lambert Quotes

"In spite of photographs taken in beer halls or nightclubs showing her cuddling up to some strapping, smirking youth, it seems that the romantic cliché was true: when she met Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun met her destiny"

Maisie Mosco Quotes

"Life is full of sacrifices. Let them be for something."

Johann Baptist Metz Quotes

"No mi kršćani upućeni smo po središtu našega Creda - mučen pod Poncijem Pilatom - u povijest u kojoj je bilo razapinjanja i mučenja, u kojoj se plakalo i tako rijetko ljubilo. I nikakav od povijesti udaljeni mit, nikakav Platonovi idejni Bog, nikakva gnostička soteriologija i nikakav apstraktni govor o povijesnosti naše egzistencije ne mogu nam vratiti onu nedužnost koju smo u toj povijesti izgubili."

Peter Bichsel Quotes

"I was convinced that the world was in the departure and paging."

Greatest Quotes

"England has her Stratford, Scotland has her Alloway, and America, too, has her Dresden. For there, on August 11, 1833, was born the greatest and noblest of the Western World; an immense personality, -- unique, lovable, sublime; the peerless orator of all time, and as true a poet as Nature ever held in tender clasp upon her loving breast, and, in words coined for the chosen few, told of the joys and sorrows, hopes, dreams, and fears of universal life; a patriot whose golden words and deathless deeds were worthy of the Great Republic; a philanthropist, real and genuine; a philosopher whose central theme was human love, -- who placed the holy hearth of home higher than the altar of any god; an iconoclast, a builder -- a reformer, perfectly poised, absolutely honest, and as fearless as truth itself -- the most aggressive and formidable foe of superstition -- the most valiant champion of reason -- Robert G. Ingersoll."

Marcus Du Sautoy Quotes

"If you can make yourself symmetrical, youre sending out a sign that youve got good genes, youve got a good upbringing and therefore youll make a good mate."

Quotes About Beginning A New Job

"Perhaps I can make you understand. Lets start from the beginning. A man is hired to give advice to the readers of a newspaper. The job is a circulation stunt and the whole staff considers it a joke. He welcomes the job, for it might lead to a gossip column, and anyway hes tired of being a leg man. He too considers the job a joke, but after several months at it, the joke begins to escape him. He sees that the majority of the letters are profoundly humble pleas for moral and spiritual advice, and they are inarticulate expressions of genuine suffering. He also discovers that his correspondents take him seriously. For the first time in his life, he is forced to examine the values by which he lives. This examination shows him that he is the victim of the joke and not its perpetrator." - Author: Nathanael West

Quotes About God Centeredness

"So much of the worlds suffering results from the sinful action or inaction of ourselves and others. For example, people look at a famine and wonder where God is, but the world produces enough food for each person to have 3,000 calories a day. Its our own irresponsibility and self-centeredness that prevents people from getting fed." - Author: Lee Strobel

Quotes About Consiousness

"Imam Ali(as) said, " The body experinces six different states: health, sickness, death, life, sleep, and wakefulness, and so does the spirit.

Quotes About Rahl

"Richard rubbed his temples. He had a headache from lack of sleep. "Dont you understand? This isnt about conquering lands and taking things from others; this is about fighting oppression."The general rested a boot on the gilded rung of a chair and hooked a thumb behind his wide belt. "I dont see much difference. From my experience, the Master Rahl always thinks he knows best, and always wants to rule the world. You are your fathers son. War is war. Reasons make no difference to us; we fight because we are told to, same as those on the other side. Reasons mean little to a man swinging his sword, trying to keep his head." - Author: Terry Goodkind

Quotes About Veil

"As Blake leaned down to accept her hug she whispered, "Remember when you and Livia tried to hog the spotlight at my wedding? Just when you and Livia get to the good part, Cole and I are going to have porno sex right there."She and John took one small step at a time. She was obviously much more concerned about tripping than Kyle had been. During her descent, Blake just looked. Her white gown fit her frame perfectly, and the strapless dress revealed the gentle, tempting curves of her shoulders. Her bouquet contained the paper-napkin roses hed made for her, combined with babys breath. A flowing train cascaded down the stairs behind Livia, and an even longer veil billowed in the gentle breeze like a blown wish." - Author: Debra Anastasia
