[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]]

"I heard the voice of that bird, son of Polypas, whose piercing outcryand whose arrival announces to men the season when fieldsare plowed, and the voice of her broke the heart that darkens within me,since other men posess my flourishing acres now,and not for me are the mules dragging the plow through the grainland,since I have given my heart to the restless seafarers life."

Carol Horton Quotes

"In the end, what I love most about contemporary yoga is its ability tosynthesize the everyday with the extraordinary, the practical with thevisionary, the mundane with the sacred. I love that yoga can work torelease my tense muscles, negative emotions, and psychic detritus at thesame time. That it can connect me to my body in ways that create newneural pathways in my brain. That it offers a practical tool for copingwith everyday stress, as well as an intuitive opening to the hidden magicof everyday life."

Quotes About Conflicts In Love

"Can we reconcile indefinitely these two imperatives: the desire to preserve every individuals special identity and the need for Europeans to be able to communicate with one another all the time and as freely as possible? We cannot leave it to time to solve the dilemma and prevent people from engaging, a few years hence, in bitter and fruitless linguistic conflicts. We know all too well what time will do.The only possible answer is a voluntary policy aimed at strengthening linguistic diversity and based on a simple idea: nowadays everybody obviously needs three languages. The first is his language of identity; the third is English. Between the two we have to promote a third language, freely chosen, which will often but not always be another European language. This will be for everyone the main foreign language taught at school, but it will also be much more than that--the language of the heart, the adopted language, the language you have married, the language you love." - Author: Amin Maalouf

Quotes About 1914

"Consider that in 1800 Western powers claimed 55 percent but actually held approximately 35 percent of the earths surface, and that by 1874 the proportion was 67 percent, a rate of increase of 83,000 square miles per year. By 1914, the annual rate had risen to an astonishing 240,000 square miles [per year], and Europe held a grand total of roughly 85 percent of the earth as colonies, protectorates, dependencies, dominions, and commonwealths. No other associated set of colonies in history was as large, none so totally dominated, none so unequal in power to the Western metropolis." Culture and Imperialism, pg. 8" - Author: Edward W. Said

Quotes About Terrorism In Pakistan

"A common strand appeared to unite these conflicts, and that was the advancement of a small coteries concept of American interests in the guise of the fight against terrorism, which was defined to refer only to the organized and politically motivated killing of civilians by killers not wearing the uniforms of soldiers. I recognized that if this was to be the single most important priority of our species, then the lives of those of us who lived in lands in which such killers also lived had no meaning except as collateral damage. This, I reasoned, was why America felt justified in bringing so many deaths to Afghanistan and Iraq, and why America felt justified in risking so many more deaths by tacitly using India to pressure Pakistan." - Author: Mohsin Hamid
