Quotes About Task Completion

"Women are creatures that accomplishes staggering tasks. They seek perfection, accommodation, and completion in their tasks. This is why it is valid to put your faith in a woman if you need to get a job done. Vision however, is what they lack. Imagination, is where they are weak. Possibility, is what they attempt to ignore. This is when you get a boy or a man, for they have the power to truly dream. A man understands that you can turn a dream into reality, and that time is a luxury, not an obstacle." - Author: Lionel Suggs

Quotes About Civilization And Culture

"The fact the enemies of God must face is that modern civilization has conquered the world, but in doing so has lost its soul. And in losing its soul it will lose the very world it gained. Even our own so-called Liberal culture in these United States which has tried to avoid complete secularization by leaving little zones of individual freedom is in danger of forgetting that these zones were preserved only because religion was in their soul. And as religion fades so will freedom, for only where the spirit of God is, is there liberty." - Author: Fulton J. Sheen

Quotes About The Arts And Learning

"I have come gradually to understand that the liberal arts cliché about teaching you how to think is actually shorthand for a much deeper, more serious idea: learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience. Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life, you will be totally hosed." - Author: David Foster Wallace

"Theyd begun to back down the long drive when he saw two little boys run out from behind Nate and Tamsyn. The DarkRiver male picked up the children and said something that made both his mate and the boys laugh. Judd looked away. That wasnt his life and it never would be. Yet even knowing that, Brenna had made her choice very clear. And if she decided later that she wanted out? The darkness, the badness in him, bared its teeth. Tonight-maybe tonight-he could set her free. After that, shed have to kill him to get away." - Author: Nalini Singh

Quotes About Nothing New Under The Sun

When someone says You never stand in the same river twice someone else has already replied There is nothing new under the sun. In the minds arithmetic, 1 plus -1 equals 2. Truths are not quantities but scripts: Become for a moment the mind in which this is true." - Author: James Richardson

But she had known something all along that I hadnt: that being ashamed of what you want or how you feel is pointless, and letting anyone else make you feel ashamed is a waste.

And I wasnt sure what I wanted, but I didnt want to make any decisions until I knew. And I was proud of that." - Author: Kody Keplinger

Quotes About Had A Great Time

"Sissy had two great failings. She was a great lover and a great mother. She had so much of tenderness in her, so much of wanting to give of herself to whoever needed what she had, whether it was her money, her time, the clothes off her back, her pity, her understanding, her friendship or her companionship and love. She was mother to everything that came her way. She loved men, yes. She loved women too, and old people, and especially children. How she loved children! She loved the down-and-outers. She wanted to make everybody happy. She had tried to seduce the good priest who heard her infrequent confessions because she felt sorry for him. She thought he was missing the greatest joy on earth by being committed to a life of celibacy." - Author: Betty Smith
