She wrote the words of Marx quoted above and when the examination was over hurried to the monument to check. Reading the inscription "Religion is the opiate of the people," she fell to her knees, saying, "Thank God."

George Eldon Ladd Quotes

"The miracles of healing, important as they were, were not an end in themselves. They did not constitute the highest good of the messianic salvation. This fact is illustrated by the arrangement of the phrases in Matthew 11:4-5. Greater than deliverance of the blind and the lame, the lepers and the deaf, even than raising of the dead, was the preaching of the good news to the poor. This "gospel" was the very presence of Jesus himself, and the joy and fellowship that he brought to the poor."

Derek Jarman Quotes

"If you can, trap me. Ill make a good patient because I was brought up in the environment of authority; its going to be hard to pull me in though- Ive been running all my life, playing truant. If you can capture me Ill buckle down. Ill loathe you in secret and put on a good face."

Leonard Susskind Quotes

"Im afraid I am a bit of a technophobe - a nineteenth-century man caught in the twenty-first century. But there is one piece of technology that I would especially welcome: a device to automatically balance restaurant tables on all four legs so that they dont rock back and forth."

Quotes About Pretending To Be Friends

"Benedict, it is true I cannot accept any future you have offered me. We both know why." Except he didnt, but he said nothing and she continued. "But I would be lying if I told you that I didnt still…think of you. Of us." He stared. Was this happening? Was she truly saying these things after three years of polite distance and pretending to be friends? "You do," he said, flat and emotionless for he feared revealing too much. She nodded. "It seems there is unfinished business between us. On both sides. And since everything is about to change, I wonder if we should resolve that business, if only so it wont haunt us." "What are you saying?" he asked softly. She swallowed and her voice trembled as she whispered, "Be with me again." - Author: Jess Michaels

Quotes About Intimate Connections

"One time I listened to Farmer give a talk on HIV to a class at the Harvard School of Public Health, and in the midst of reciting data, he mentioned the Haitian phrase "looking for life, destroying life," Then he explained, "Its an expression Haitians use if a poor woman selling mangoes falls off a truck and dies." I felt as if for that moment I could see a little way into his mind, It seemed like a place of hyperconnectivity, At moments like that, I thought that what he wanted was to erase both time and geography, connecting all parts of his life and tying them instrumentally to a world in which he saw intimate, inescapable connections between the gleaming corporate offices of Paris and New York and a legless man lying on the mud floor of a hut in the remotest part of remote Haiti. Of all the worlds errors, he seemed to feel, the most fundamental was the "erasing" of people, the "hiding away" of suffering. "My big struggle is how people can not care, erase, not remember." - Author: Tracy Kidder

Quotes About Lip Biting

"Adin looked up at Donte, who was then in the middle of taking a sip of his wine. He took in Dontes demonically beautiful face, long and angular, with its hooded eyes and high cheekbones, its wine-darkened lips. He watched as Donte savored it, imagining the warmth of the wine on the inside of Dontes mouth and against his tongue. He could almost feel it as it slid down the column of Dontes throat, teasing his Adams apple into a subtle bob, and suddenly Adin was the wine, slipping down that throat, and just as inexplicably, Adin felt Dontes mouth on him everywhere at once, biting…licking…sucking. Adins breath sped up; his skin warmed with the beginnings of a flush brought on by arousal." - Author: Z.A. Maxfield

Quotes About Losing Someone You Love To Death

"And the Witch tempted you to do another thing, My son, did she not?""Yes, Aslan. She wanted me to take an apple home to mother.""Understand, then, that is would have healed her, but not to your joy or hers. The day would have come when both of you would have looked back and said it would have been better to die in that illness."And then Diggory could say nothing, for tears choked him and he gave up all hopes of saving his mothers life; but at the same time he knew the Lion knew what would have happened, and that there might be things more terrible even than losing someone you love to death." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Coragem

"oh, a medonha coragem dos que vão arrancando de si, dia a dia, a doçura da saudade do que passou, o encanto novo da esperança do que há-de vir, e que serenamente, desdenhosamente, sem saudades nem esperanças, partem um dia sem saber para onde, aventureiros da morte, emigrantes sem eira nem beira, audaciosos esquadrinhadores de abismos mais negros e mais misteriosos que todos os abismos escancarados do mundo" - Author: Florbela Espanca

Quotes About African Wilderness

"In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America, and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter, and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the circle of ethics. -" - Author: Peter Singer
