Martha V Parravano Quotes

"Consider a small child sitting on his mothers lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the center of a closed circle - that of mothers body, arms, and the picture book... That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart form the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our societys technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic."

Johann Christoph Arnold Quotes

"Progress is hardly ever dramatic; in fact, it is usually very slow. As every parent and teacher knows, education is never a matter of ten-step plans or quick formulas, but of faithful commitment to the mundane challenges of daily life: getting up from the sofa to spend time with our children, loving them and disciplining them, becoming involved in their lives at school and, most important, making sure they have a wholesome family life to return to at home. Maybe that is why Jesus teaches us to ask for strength little by little, on a daily basis - "Give us this day our daily bread" - and why he stresses the significance of even the smallest, humblest beginnings: "Wherever two of you agree about anything you ask for, it shall be done for you... For where two or three come together in my name, I shall be with them" (Mt. 18:19-20)."

Kristin Cast Quotes

"Darius didnt have any trouble finding the Street Cats building. It was a cozy-looking square brick building with big front windows crowded with cat stuff. I made a mental note to pick up a little something for Nala from their gift shop. My cat was grumpy enough without her thinking that Id been cheating on her (translation: I would smell like a zillion other cats) and hadnt even brought her a present."

Marlene Steinberg Quotes

Patients who report histories of childhood trauma characteristically describe themese of ongoing inner struggle regarding their identity; of inner battles for survival; or other images of anger, conflict, and violence."

Johnny Rico Quotes

"Donkeys...Ive decided that donkeys are universally cute. Really cute. So cute that donkeys defy any arguments of preferences being relative. When you pet their noses, they blink their eyes and bashfully look away as if embarrassed. And when donkeys hee-haw, they have their mouths and lips curled up as if they are smiling. Boyfriend and girlfriend donkeys rest their heads on each others rumpt and fan each others faces with their tails. And kid donkeys, the size of an average dog, trot around with big smiles on their faces and floppy, dangly, long donkey ears. Too cute."

Nando Parrado Quotes

"As we used to say in the mountains, "Breathe. Breathe again. With every breath, you are alive." After all these years, this still the best advice I can give you: Savor your existence. Live every moment. Do not waste a breath."

Quotes About Mond

"Az a helyzet, hogy hinni akarunk. A diákok a klasszikusokban, a választópolgárok a képviselőikben, az országok az államférfiakban, ámde nem tudnak hinni bennük. Mert nagy a hangzavar, és a sok kusza, önellentmondó és meggondolatlan bírálat közt nem tudnak eligazodni. Az újságok esetében még rosszabb a helyzet. Bármely gazdag, reakciós párt, ha kellőképp áthatja a pénzügyi zsenialitásnak nevezett kapzsiság és bírvágy szelleme, bízvást szert tehet egy újságra, amely aztán lelki tápláléka lesz sok ezer fáradt és űzött embernek, akit annyira lefoglal az úgynevezett modern élet, hogy már csak előemésztett eledel fogyasztására képes. A választó két rongyos centért politikai meggyőződést, előítéletet és filozófiát vásárolhat magának." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Advantages Of Technology

"A permanent base on Mars would have a number of advantages beyond being a bonanza for planetary science and geology. If, as some evidence suggests, exotic micro-organisms have arisen independently of terrestrial life, studying them could revolutionise biology, medicine and biotechnology." - Author: Paul Davies

Quotes About Studies And Work

"Through this process, wisdom clarifies the way that the mind manufacturers emotion and karma, and finally penetrates the illusion of self. Just as though one were investigating how a magician created his display of illusions, one studies mental events to understand the conditions and causes that support the operation of ordinary self-oriented experience. One first understands the root emotions as the basis for samsara, then studies the workings of the associated emotions and how each one manifests a distinctive character. Gradually, the manner in which the self supports emotion and emotion supports the sense of self becomes clear. Self and emotion are seen as relying on and reinforcing each others existence. Understanding how this collusion gives rise to the whole range of samsaric delusion liberates the mind from all forms of deception." - Author: Dharma Publishing

Quotes About Psalm Of Life

"If we think we will have joy only by praying and singing psalms, we will be disillusioned. But if we fill our lives with simple good things and constantly thank God for them, we will be joyful, that is, full of joy. And what about our problems? When we determine to dwell on the good and excellent things in life, we will be so full of those things that they will tend to swallow our problems." - Author: Richard J. Foster
