Hemant Mehta Quotes

"Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on.I dont see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isnt that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat?"

Quotes About Peaceful Activism

"The engineers ready capitulation, however, did not hide from the poets mother the sad realization that the adventure into which she had plunged so impulsively--and which had seemed so intoxicatingly beautiful--had no turned out to be the great, mutually fulfilling love she was convinced she had a full right to expect. Her father was the owner of two prosperous Prague pharmacies, and her morality was based on strict give-and-take. For her part, she had invested everything in love (she had even been willing to sacrifice her parents and their peaceful existence); in turn, she had expected her partner to invest an equal amount of capital of feelings in the common account. To redress the imbalance, she gradually withdrew her emotional deposit and after the wedding presented a proud, severe face to her husband." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Flowers In Summer

"Now the day is done,Now the shepherd sunDrives his white flocks from the sky;Now the flowers restOn their mothers breast,Hushed by her low lullaby.Now the glowworms glance,Now the fireflies dance,Under fern-boughs green and high;And the western breezeTo the forest treesChants a tuneful lullaby.Now mid shadows deepFalls blessed sleep,Like dew from the summer sky;And the whole earth dreams,In the moons soft beams,While night breathes a lullaby.Now, birdlings, rest,In your wind-rocked nest,Unscared by the owls shrill cry;For with folded wingsLittle Brier swings,And singeth your lullaby." - Author: Louisa May Alcott

Quotes About Being Underrated In Sports

"You will. I promise. Theres a lockup. Each apartment has one. Like a big storage cage. Come with me." An image of me being locked in a cage in some kind of creepy cellar came into my head. I didnt even know Toby. Not really. And he said himself he was jealous of me. Maybe he would lock me in this basement and nobody in the world would ever guess where I was. Tobys shoulders drooped, and he cocked his head to one side and said, "Please," in the most pathetic voice ever. Then he perked back up. "Look, truly, June. You wont be sorry." I thought about it for a few seconds and came to the conclusion that a real psycho wouldnt have mentioned the cage. A real psycho would have lured me down there by telling me there was a puppy or something." - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
