Megan Sweeney Quotes

"[Solitary confinement] is terrible. That is terrible. Youre in a grave. You cant do anything. Everythings brought to you and youre in a room all day, except to come out of the showers. So when I would come out, I would entertain myself by singing, doing little mock concerts. And then when I was in the room, I would develop a routine. Like I have a lot of hair under here, so I would take my hair down and take all day to braid it on purpose. Stretch the hours out. Then I might write. And I would clean the floor. And I would look out the window. And then Id devote a whole day to just reading. I was Christian then, trying to be. So I would read the whole Bible. I would break it down into sections. Youre in a grave and youre trying to live. Thats how to best describe it: trying to live in a grave. Youre trying to live cause youre not dead yet, but nobody hears you when you call out, Hey, Im alive!"

Bob Goodlatte Quotes

"If businesses dont know from state to state what the requirements are for taxes, they have to waste a lot of money on accountants and lawyers before deciding to expand their business into the state next door."

Guru Amar Das Quotes

"He Himself makes the mortals anxious, and He Himself takes the anxiety away."

Elena Kagan Quotes

"I do not espouse the unitarian position. President Clintons assertion of directive authority over administration, more than President Reagans assertion of a general supervisory authority, raises serious constitutional questions."

JM Morris Quotes

"I could probably write a book on the complexities of our relationship, on my constantly shifting emotions, my ever-changing mind, but lets just say that nothing is ever as black and white as it seems, that love is not only blind but pathetic too. It can make us into victims and fools, reduce us to the kind of people who infuriate us on soap operas, the kind you want to scream at for allowing the creep or bitch to walk all over them."

Robert Nozick Quotes

"I think philosophers can do things akin to theoretical scientists, in that, having read about empirical data, they too can think of what hypotheses and theories might account for that data. So theres a continuity between philosophy and science in that way."

Sabrina Miso Quotes

"Erano stati vanesi ed egoisti, persino Cam. Ma ora tutto ciò non aveva più importanza perché non era rimasto niente, tranne loro, tranne gli Dèi Bianchi che avanzavano sullaterra in cerca di qualcosa che non esisteva più."

Karla M Nashar Quotes

"Love is simple, but most people tend to overanalyze it."

J Cole Quotes

"Anything I do, I want to do it well."

Dahveed Quotes

"When we search for "ourselves" in the eyes of others, we have imprisoned our own-selves in believing that our self-worth is nothing unless others validate who we are. Unless we approve of whom we are, what we are, and what we are capable of doing as an individual, only then we will have released "ourselves" from our own imprisonment. We are in charge of our own lifes destiny and what we do and become can only be validated by our accomplishments and failures; not by what others may think of us."

Quotes About Dunraven

"For the house of Dunraven, the ravens represented a spiritual claim to the Tower for the Celtic, especially the Welsh, people. For the English, the ravens represented the colorful savagery of their ancestors, which, however, testified to the exalted state of civilization they had since achieved. The national sagas of the Welsh and English gradually blended in tall tales told to tourists by Yeoman Warders, to eventually create a national myth. The romanticized past of Wales, predicated on survival, was fused with that of England, predicated on progress and conquest, to create a legend of Britain." - Author: Boria Sax

Quotes About Taxonomy

"Think outside the box? Indeed. But to add balance to that, one should not in the process forget what the inside of the box looks like as well. Those who are best at thinking outside the box do it not to puff themselves up, but to see how small they really are. As a contented fish in its fish tank appears to have a small, boring existence to us, imagine a larger, more perceptive kingdom (even by scientific taxonomy) to whom our contented existences may appear to be small and boring. This is where true creativity and massive perceptive abilities spawn a sense of intellectual humility; the kind which God adores." - Author: Criss Jami

Quotes About Searching For Yourself

"Once you admit to yourself that you are or arent something, then you can begin searching for the reason why," Deuce went on. "And once youve found that, you can begin to take steps toward making it better. So, tell yourself youre an asshole, stop being an asshole, your problems solved," Deuce said in a pleased voice." - Author: Abigail Roux

Quotes About Evangelizing

"The preacher should work to convert his congregation; the wife should work to save her unbelieving husband. Christians are sent to convert, and they should not allow themselves, as Christs representatives in the world, to aim at anything less. Evangelizing, therefore, is not simply a matter of teaching, and instructing, and imparting information to the mind. There is more to it than that. Evangelizing includes the endeavor to elicit a response to the truth taught." - Author: J.I. Packer

Quotes About Rushing Things

"Long lunches with cement dinosaurs, Viking rune stones, Joshua trees, and the worlds largest ball of twine werent anywhere on my agenda. Its a vacation, Annalee would say. Its about discovering what there is to see. No sense rushing from here to there.But the worlds largest ball of twine? Id counter.Annalee would only laugh and flap a hand at me, her bracelets jingling. I want to see it all...I would have missed so many things, so many of the best things, had it not been for Annalee. I would have worried and calculated and scheduled my way past the grandeur of ordinary life." - Author: Lisa Wingate

Quotes About Different Kinds Of Love

"Is not literature meant to speak of our being a thousand different kinds of things, at times creating even this diversity? If literature gives up this purpose, this duty, it renounces all claim to legitimacy. I am Hungarian. I am Slovene. I am Serbian. You do not need literature for sentences like that. A bureaucrat will do, and a rubber stamp. A border guard. An Army." - Author: P
