Sol Luckman Quotes

"I am, as it were, the created creating—a paradox, for all its rhetorical trappings, at the beating heart of our shared human journey, and one I invite you to struggle with just as I have while, day in and day out, word by word and line by line, constructing a fictitious autobiography for myself in these pages."

Anlayo Quotes

"Another aspect inviting contemplation is the fact that the affective tone of any feeling depends on the type of contact that has caused its arising. Once this conditioned nature of feelings is fully apprehended, detachment arises naturally and ones identification with feelings starts to dissolve."

Marilynn Dawson Quotes

"We must be so heavenly minded that we are compelled to be of earthly good!"

Quotes About Bad Things Happening For Good Reasons

"But what we have here is not a nice girl, as generally understood. For one thing, shes not beautiful. Theres a certain set to the jaw and arch to the nose that might, with a following wind and in the right light, be called handsome by a good-natured liar. Also, theres a certain glint in her eye generally possessed by those people who have found that they are more intelligent than most people around them but who havent yet learned that one of the most intelligent things they can do is prevent said people ever finding this out." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Egypt Protests

"She smiled darkly and shook her head. Im not crazy. Im not. Of course what else would a crazy person claim? Thats the Kafkaesque genius of it all. If youre not crazy but people have told the world you are, then all your protests to the contrary just underscore their point. Do you see what Im saying?" - Author: Dennis Lehane

Quotes About Pathetic Parents

"Seeing his grief over Eamon makes mine pathetic. No one will feel the loss of his brother more than him. Not his parents, not his brothers friends. Not me. Me being here will probably just make things worse, not better. Or maybe thats my arrogance in thinking I might still have the same kind of effect on him that he has on me." - Author: Jolene Perry

Quotes About Palsy

"Gus is the Cat at the Theatre Door.His name, as I ought to have told you before,Is really Asparagus. Thats such a fussTo pronounce, that we usually call him just Gus.His coats very shabby, hes thin as a rake,And he suffers from palsy that makes his paw shake.Yet he was, in his youth, quite the smartest of Cats —But no longer a terror to mice or to rats.For he isnt the Cat that he was in his prime;Though his name was quite famous, he says, in his time.And whenever he joins his friends at their club(which takes place at the back of the neighbouring pub)He loves to regale them, if someone else pays,With anecdotes drawn from his palmiest days.For he once was a Star of the highest degree —He has acted with Irving, hes acted with Tree.And he likes to relate his success on the Halls,Where the Gallery once gave him seven cat-calls.But his grandest creation, as he loves to tell,Was Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell." - Author: T.S. Eliot

Quotes About Proverbs Bible

"When God brought the first man his spouse, he brought him not just a lover but the friend his heart had been seeking. Proverbs 2:17 speaks of ones spouse as your "allup," a unique word that the lexicons define as your "special confidant" or "best friend." In an age where women were often seen as the husbands property, and marriages were mainly business deals and transactions seeking to increase the familys social status and security, it was startling for the Bible to describe a spouse in this way. But in todays society, with its emphasis on romance and sex, it is just as radical to insist that your spouse should be your best friend, though for a different reason. In tribal societies, romance doesnt matter as much as social status, and in individualistic Western societies, romance and great sex matter far more than anything else. The Bible, however, without ignoring the importance of romance, puts great emphasis on marriage as companionship." - Author: Timothy Keller

Quotes About Prawda

"Skoro tylko kot doprowadzony został do komisariatu, stwierdzono tam, że rzeczony obywatel intensywnie wonieje spirytusem, w związku z czym jego zeznań nie przyjęto za dobrą monetę. Tymczasem staruszka, dowiedziawszy się od sąsiadów, że jej kota przymknęli, popędziła do komisariatu i zdążyła na czas. Wystawiła kotu jak najpochlebniejsze świadectwo, zeznała, że zna go od pięciu lat, od małego kociaka, że ręczy za niego jak za samą siebie, udowodniła, że nigdy jeszcze się nie zdarzyło, by przyłapano go na czymś zdrożnym, oraz że nigdy nie wyjeżdżał do Moskwy. W Armawirze się urodził, tu się wychował, tu się kształcił w łowach na myszy.Kot został uwolniony z więzów i zwrócony właścicielce, acz, co prawda, ciężko doświadczony przez los – przekonał się bowiem na własnej skórze, co to znaczy fałszywe posądzenie i oszczerstwo." - Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
