Will Davis Jr Quotes

"Once you decide to forgive, you initiate the healing process. Forgiveness gives your soul permission to move on to the higher and healthier ground of emotional recovery. Forgiveness is to your soul what antibiotics are to infection. It is the curative agent that will help to fully restore your soul. It doesnt immediately remove the pain of defense but it does start you on the road to recovery."

Karen Hesse Quotes

"I dont know what I am thinking. But I am alone. I am trapped in the net of the room. In the net of humans. I think maybe I am drowning in the net of humans."

Osama Bin Laden Quotes

"What America is tasting now is something insignificant compared to what we have tasted for scores of years. Our nation (the Islamic world) has been tasting this humiliation and degradation for more than 80 years. Its sons are killed, its blood is shed, its sanctuaries are attacked and no one hears and no one heeds. Millions of innocent children are being killed as I speak. They are being killed in Iraq without committing any sins. . . . To America, I say only a few words to it and its people. I swear to God, who has elevated the skies without pillars, neither America nor the people who live in it will dream of security before we live it here in Palestine and not before all the infidel armies leave the land of Muhammad, peace be upon him."

Lewis Black Quotes

"Americans continue to rapidly homogenize ourselves into a neutered oblivion. For a country founded on the protection of the unique, we relish our sameness."

Marian Tee Quotes

"I should have learned my lesson from Greek myths, really. It so doesnt pay to fall in love with a god. Its either you get transformed – flower, bull, you name it, the gods can be that petty – or you just get…crushed."

Tessa Hadley Quotes

"I hate to think of you stuck here all day every day, doing nothing with that brilliant brain of yours.""It never was brilliant. Anyway, who keeps these books to see whos used themselves wisely and whos wasted?"

Quotes About Genius And Creativity

"It was a vicious circle, though. The more gratification we found in our own geniuses, the more isolated we grew. Our home was like an artists colony. We ate together, but otherwise were absorbed in our separate pursuits. And in this isolation, our creativity took on an aspect of compulsion." - Author: Alison Bechdel

Quotes About Basho

"It was quiet in the cell. Rubashov heard only the creaking of his steps on the tiles. Six and a half steps to the door, whence they must come to fetch him, six and a half steps to the window, behind which night was falling. Soon it would be over. But when he asked himself, For what actually are you dying? he found no answer.It was a mistake in the system; perhaps it lay in the precept which until now he had held to be uncontestable, in whose name he had sacrificed others and was himself being sacrificed: in the precept, that the end justifies the means. It was this sentence which had killed the great fraternity of the Revolution and made them run amuck. What had he once written in his diary? "We have thrown overboard all conventions, our sole guiding principle is that of consequent logic; we are sailing without ethical ballast." - Author: Arthur Koestler

Quotes About Being A Good Person Without Religion

"Probably the hardest thing in the world for a man is the simple observation and acceptance of what is. Always we warp our pictures with what we hoped, expected, or were afraid of. In Russia we saw many things that did not agree with what we had expected, and for this reason it is very good to have photographs, because a camera has no preconceptions, it simply sets down what it sees." - Author: Steinbeck

Quotes About Dodos

"Man filmu žurnālistika ir pavisam nesaistoša blakus nodarbošanās. Es nenododos tai ne tuvu ar tādu profesionālu pamatīgumu kā daudzi no maniem biedriem. Kad diena pavadīta pie rakstāmmašīnas, ir gluži patīkami vakarā aizbraukt uz kādu studiju un noskatīties izrādi. Es skatos caurmērā divas, trīs filmas nedēļā. Ziemā vairāk, vasaras mēnešos mazāk. Telpas ir ērtas un mājīgas. Skatītāji parastie, pazīstamie ļaudis. Izrāda vienmēr tikai vienu filmu – lieki nenogurdinot. Preses izrādes šad tad apmeklē aktieri vai režisori, apsēstas pēdējā rindā un vēro žurnālistu reakciju. Tuvojoties godalgošanas laikam, Holivūda spēcīgi sasparojas. Vairojas preses konferences, vairojas pirmizrādes ar drūzmu, starmetējiem, ar premjēru piedalīšanos, fotografu bariem, televīzijas kameru bīdīšanos. Savs raibums un spirgtums ziņotājā – vērotāja gaitām piemīt, un tikai ļoti retais žurnālists maina savu profesiju pret kādu citu, mierīgāku darbu" - Author: Anšlavs Eglītis
