Abraham Skorka Quotes

"Having personality does not mean being violent, rather honouring life by taking a stand. In this era so devoid of values, where people think it is safe to do everything that comes to mind, there is a need for purity. Man can and must have direction. Jews and Catholics must work together to help the man who suffers, and most importantly, look ahead."

Paolo Bacigalupi Quotes

"Politics is ugly. Never doubt what small men will do for great power."

Nikolai Leskov Quotes

"Ах, как все вы, господа, даже самые гуманнейшие, в сущности злы инетерпимы! Ну, ну, сделал бедный человек что-нибудь для того, чтоб усвоитьвозможность воспользоваться положением дел... ну, ну, что вам от этого, treschaud (Очень жарко (франц.).) или froid(Холодно (франц.)). Ничуть не бывало:вокруг вас все обстоит благополучно, и ничто не волнуется, кроме собственнойвашей нетерпимости."

"Where Id like to see more women is at the executive table."

Peter Gethers Quotes

"People happily kill other people in the name of everything from a god to a country to an overly developed sense of annoyance when someone cuts across two lanes on a freeway without signaling. Cats will, on occasion, kill other cats but for the most part they are content to puff up their furr, yowl like banshees, and rip the occassional ear off - and all this is usually done for the sake of food or protecting their own territory (which may not be condonable but it is at least rational) ."

Gerald Howard Quotes

"Work—especially the sort of work that gets your hands dirty and that brands you as a member of the working class—no longer seems germane to our novelists apprenticeships and, not coincidentally, is no longer easy to find in the fiction they produce. Whether one finds this scarcity something to worry about or simply a fact to be noted probably says a lot about ones class origins and prejudices."

Penelope Ann Miller Quotes

"I did not get Botox because you wouldnt see any expression in my face. Hopefully it has paid off."

Shadowlands Quotes

"He comes, he sleeps, he goes. So the plot thickens."

Simon Schama Quotes

"The digital communications technology that was once imagined as a universe of transparent and perpetual illumination, in which cancerous falsehoods would perish beneath a saturation bombardment of irradiating data, has instead generated a much murkier and verification-free habitat where a google-generated search will deliver an electronic page on which links to lies and lunacy appear in identical format as those to truths and sanity. But why should we ever have assumed that technology and reason would be mutually self-reinforcing? The quickest visit to say, a site called Stormfront will persuade you that the demonic is in fact the best customer of the electronic."

Quotes About Change And Success

"There is one aspect of the change in moral values brought about by the advance of collectivism which at the present time provides special food for thought. It is that the virtues which are held less and less in esteem and which consequently become rarer and precisely those on which the British people justly prided themselves and in which they were generally agreed to excel. The virtues possessed by Anglo-Saxons in a higher degree than most other people, excepting only a few of the smaller nations, like the Swiss and the Dutch, were independence and self-reliance, individual initiative and local responsbility, the successful reliance on voluntary activity, noninterference with ones neighbor and tolerance of the different and queer, respect for custom and tradition, and a healthy suspicion of power and authority." - Author: Friedrich Hayek

Quotes About Hawaii Life

"Everywhere I went in the wild corners of Hawaii, I found that the biology was as astonishing as the beauty. The landscapes have value beyond the enchantment of a waterfall or the surreal drama of an expanse of slick rock with bits of green life taking hold. Exploring these islands intrigues the mind and stirs the imagination, for nature in Hawaii is at her most inventive and extravagant best." - Author: Cynthia Russ Ramsay

Quotes About Librarian

"As adults we choose our own reading material. Depending on our moods and needs we might read the newspaper, a blockbuster novel, an academic article, a womens magazine, a comic, a childrens book, or the latest book that just about everyone is reading. No one chastises us for our choice. No one says, Thats too short for you to read. No one says, Thats too easy for you, put it back. No one says You couldnt read that if you tried -- its much too difficult.Yet if we take a peek into classrooms, libraries, and bookshops we will notice that childrens choices are often mocked, censured, and denied as valid by idiotic, interfering teachers, librarians, and parents. Choice is a personal matter that changes with experience, changes with mood, and changes with need. We should let it be." - Author: Mem Fox

Quotes About Habit

"Toute ma vie, jai été habitué à ce que les autres se trompent sur mon compte. Cest le lot de tout homme public. Il lui faut une solide cuirasse; car sil fallait donner des explications pour se justifier quand on se méprend sur vos intentions, la vie deviendrait insupportable. Je me suis fait une règle de ne jamais intervenir pour rectifier ce genre derreur, à moins que ne lexige la cause que je défends. Ce principe ma épargné bien du temps et bien des tracas." - Author: Mahatma Gandhi

Quotes About Lame Excuses

"People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives." - Author: J. Michael Straczynski

Quotes About Being Taken Seriously

Quotes About Fake Items

"Inside the room there sat a rocker, which she sat on, and which had rocked her while she sipped the beer, because in spite of herself she had become so giddy to have so quickly relieved her heart that she allowed herself to lean backwards while in the rocker, which had made it possible for the rocker to rock her, although it was not her intention to be so rocked. Also there stood an ironing board with a still hot iron on it that was burning a yellow shift, and there was, among several items that were not as noticeable to the woman, and yet were noticeable enough to at least bear mention, a fake man."I hope you dont mind me asking," said the woman who lived in the room, but then while in her chair she nodded off." - Author: Justin Dobbs

Quotes About Funny Complaints

"Susan was a tough-minded romantic. She wanted to fall in love with a book. She always had reasons for her devotions, as an astute reader would, but she was, to her credit, probably the most emotional one among us. Susan could fall in love with a book in more or less the way one falls in love with a person. Yes, you can provide, if asked, a list of your loved ones lovable qualities: hes kind and funny and smart and generous and he knows the names of trees.But hes also more than amalgamation of qualities. You love him, the entirety of him, which cant be wholly explained by even the most exhaustive explication of his virtues. And you love him no less for his failings. O.K., hes bad with money, he can be moody sometimes, and he snores. His marvels so outshine the little complaints as to render them ridiculous." - Author: Michael Cunningham
