[I Regret Exceedingly That The Disputes Between The Protestants And Roman Catholics Should Be Carried To The Serious Alarming Height Mentioned In Your Letters. Religious Controversies Are Always Productive Of More Acrimony And Irreconcilable Hatreds Than Those Which Spring From Any Other Cause; And I Was Not Without Hopes That The Enlightened And Liberal Policy Of The Present Age Would Have Put An Effectual Stop To Contentions Of This Kind.[Letter To Sir Edward Newenham, 22 June 1792]]

Uguisse Packard Quotes

"A botanist would have been stumped, coming across a tree like this one. Yet, if we are to judge a tree by its fruit, it was clearly an avocado. I picked the fruit, sliced it open, and tasted it to make sure. There was no doubt in my mind. If it looks like an avocado and tastes like an avocado, it has got to be an avocado. However, the tree itself had a white bark like that of a birch and its sap tasted like birch juice. Its leaves were delicate like that of a cypress, while its trunk and the root system reminded me of a baobab. Could it be that someone had grafted an avocado on to a baobab tree? And if so, why the bark so white and the leaves so, well, feathery, and delicate yet bold like a dragonflys wing? Why is there not another tree like it nearby? Where had the seed of this tree come from? I had no answer. So, I put the seed of the fruit in my pocket and took it home with me to see if I could make it grow."

Quotes About Shadow And Love

"You build your world around someone, and then what happens when he disappears? Where do you go- into pieces, into atoms, into the arms of another man? You go shopping, you cook dinner, you work odd hours, you make love to someone else on June nights. But youre not really there, youre someplace else where there is blue sky and a road you dont recognize. If you squint your eyes, you think you see him, in the shadows, beyond the trees. You always imagine that you see him, but hes never there. Its only his spirit, thats whats there beneath the bed when you kiss your husband, there when you send your daughter off to school. Its in your coffee cup, your bathwater, your tears. Unfinished business always comes back to haunt you, and a man who swears hell love you forever isnt finished with you until hes done." - Author: Alice Hoffman

Quotes About Alcohol Funny

"I thought it was lack of WILL POWER that made me get drunk. I thought it was a CHARACTER FLAW. I knew nothing about blood sugar or insulin or how alcohol makes a person drunk. I didnt know what alcohol is. It is highly concentrated sugar. Like all sugar it is highly addictive. Alcohol destroys the brains ability to have pleasure in other things. It is like swallowing razor blades. It is like battery acid. It turns into formaldehyde and formic acid in the brain. Formic acid is the stuff of bee stings." - Author: Ellen Gilchrist

Quotes About Sedition

"one who, though he never digress to read a Lecture, Moral or Political, upon his own Text, nor enter into mens hearts, further than the Actions themselves evidently guide him…filleth his Narrations with that choice of matter, and ordereth them with that Judgement, and with such perspicuity and efficacy expresseth himself that (as Plutarch saith) he maketh his Auditor a Spectator. For he setteth his Reader in the Assemblies of the People, and in their Senates, at their debating; in the Streets, at their Seditions; and in the Field, at their Battels.Quoted by Shelby Foote in his The Civil War: A Narrative – Volume 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian, Bibliographical Note, from Thomas Hobbes Forward to Hobbes translation of The Peloponnesian War by Thucydides" - Author: Thomas Hobbes

Quotes About Emotional Support

"Sexual satisfaction eases the stranglehold of materialism, since status symbols no longer look sexual, but irrelevant. Product lust weakens where emotional and sexual lust intensifies. The price we pay for artificially buoying up this market is our hearts desire. The beauty myth keeps a gap of fantasy between men and women. That gap is made with mirrors; no law of nature supports it. It keeps us spending vast sums of money and looking distractedly around us, but its smoke and reflection interfere with our freedom to be sexually ourselves." - Author: Naomi Wolf

Quotes About Unaccustomed

"His touch was simple, but specific, meant to show me he could be like a lover, gentle, intimate, but also that he was a man unaccustomed to hearing the word no. Yes. I understood. He was a man, and I? I was nothing but a girl, not even a woman. I was meant to fall at his feet and worship at the altar of his masculinity, grateful that hed deigned to acknowledge me. All this, from a simple touch." - Author: C.J. Roberts

Quotes About Counter

"This is a paradise of rising to the occasion that points out by contrast how the rest of the time most of us fall down from the heights of possibility, down into diminished selves and dismal societies. Many now do not even hope for a better society, but they recognize it when they encounter it, and that discovery shines out even through the namelessness of their experience. Others recognize it, grasp it, and make something of it, and long-term social and political transformations, both good and bad, arise from the wreckage. The door to this ears potential paradises is in hell." - Author: Rebecca Solnit

Quotes About Lives Lost

"Where I grew up, death is a constant visitor. A virus, bacteria, a parasite; drought and famine; soldiers, and torturers; could bring it to anyone, any time. Death comes riding on raindrops that turned to floods. It catches the imagination of men in positions of authority who order their subordinates to hunt, torture, and kill people they imagine to be enemies. Death lures many others to take their own lives in order to escape a dismal reality. For many women, because of the perception of lost honor, death comes at the hands of a father, brother, or husband. Death comes to young women giving birth to new life, leaving the newborn orphaned in the hands of strangers. For those who live in anarchy and civil war, as in the country of my birth, Somalia, death is everywhere." - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Quotes About Knightley

Quotes About Gracious

"Divine aids and supports are furnished us under our afflictions (Rom 8:26,27). . . . Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities (Rom 8:26). Not only does hope (a sure expectation of Gods making good His promises) support and cheer the suffering saint, leading him to patiently wait for deliverance from his afflictions, but the blessed Comforter has also been given to him in order to supply help to this very end. By His gracious aid, the believer is preserved from being totally submerged by his doubts and fears. By His renewing operations, the spark of faith is maintained, despite all the fierce winds of Satan which assail. By His mighty enabling, the sorely harassed and groaning Christian is kept from sinking into complete skepticism, abject despair, and infidelity. By His quickening power, hope is still kept alive, and the voice of prayer is still faintly heard." - Author: Arthur W. Pink
