Da Xia Quotes

"My small friend, do you really understand? Or are you just looking for pity? Do you want me to say "Its not your fault, it was determined by fate"? Or do you want me to say, "You have done enough, rest, for now"?My small friend. When the day comes, that you truly understand the meaning of the word "Path", is the day we shall talk about "Inactivity"."

Fatema Mernissi Quotes

"By putting the spotlight on the female child and framing her as the ideal of beauty, he condemns the mature woman to invisibility. In fact, the modern Western man enforces Immanuel Kants nineteenth-century theories: To be beautiful, women have to appear childish and brainless. When a woman looks mature and self-assertive, or allows her hips to expand, she is condemned ugly. Thus, the walls of the European harem separate youthful beauty from ugly maturity."

James Webb Quotes

"In such a wild, uncharted place the book of God was vital, for it nourished their spirit and laid boundaries for their conduct. Other subjects simply had no relevance. Trigonometry and calculus would not help them find their way among the mountain trails. Adam Smiths economics were of no consequence in the matter of planting corn and breeding cattle. Nor did they need the essays of Plato or the plays of Shakespeare to teach them how to shoot a rifle, or to make clothes from animal skins, or to clear away the wilderness with their own bare hands."

Quotes About Best Punctuality

"Last night I missed two free throws which would have won the game against the best team in the state. The farm town high school I play for is nicknamed the "Indians," and Im probably the only actual Indian ever to play for a team with such a mascot.This morning I pick up the sports page and read the headline: INDIANS LOSE AGAIN.Go ahead and tell me none of this is supposed to hurt me very much." - Author: Sherman Alexie

Quotes About Button Ups

"Its like when you put instant rice pudding mix in a bowl in the microwave and push the button, and you take the cover off when it rings, and there youve got ricing pudding. I mean, what happens in between the time when you push the switch and when the microwave rings? You cant tell whats going on under the cover. Maybe the instant rice pudding first turns into macaroni gratin in the darkness when nobodys looking and only then turns back into rice pudding. We think its only natural to get rice pudding after we put rice pudding mix in the microwave and the bell rings, but to me, that is just a presumption. I would be kind of relieved if, every once in a while, after you put rice pudding mix in the microwave and it rang and you opened the top, you got macaroni gratin. I suppose Id be shocked, of course, but I dont know, I think Id be kind of relieved too. Or at least I think I wouldnt be so upset, because that would feel, in some ways, a whole lot more real." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Give And Take In A Relationship

"If we cant forget, how can we forgive? I believe that forgiving cant be done by willpower alone. I can will myself to write out my own memories and feelings. I can will myself to imagine onto the page how someone else may have felt. I can will myself to research someone elses life in order to better understand what happened. But I dont think I can forgive by simply willing to forgive. Forgiving happens to us when our hearts are ready. Sometimes it takes the form of working on our own story until quietly, often surprisingly, we simply let go of the hurt. Sometimes forgiving makes it possible to pick up the pieces of a broken relationship and begin again. Sometimes it means letting a relationship go. We cant forgive through willpower. What we can do is work toward readiness of heart. Writing as a spiritual practice can be that kind of work.When our heart is ready, we often dont even know it until forgiveness happens within us. It is a gift." - Author: Pat Schneider

Quotes About Plugar

"Lucru de mirare, boierii, marii moşieri, profesorii universitari, ofiţerii superiori, episcopii şi foştii înalţi demnitari s-au dovedit mai puţin exigenţi asupra igienei decît ciobanii, lucrătorii şi plugarii, care mai toţi au fost - după cum singuri spuneau - scîrboşi şi gingaşi la mîncare şi nu încetau de a stabili reguli profilactice mai abitir ca la institutul Pasteur sau norme de folosire a tinetei şi de spălare pe mîini mai stricte decît ritualurile tribale ori ale ceremonialului defecării unui brahman." - Author: Nicolae Steinhardt

Quotes About Unity And Equality

"Equality of opportunity is not enough. Unless we create an environment where everyone is guaranteed some minimum capabilities through some guarantee of minimum income, education, and healthcare, we cannot say that we have fair competition. When some people have to run a 100 metre race with sandbags on their legs, the fact that no one is allowed to have a head start does not make the race fair. Equality of opportunity is absolutely necessary but not sufficient in building a genuinely fair and efficient society." - Author: Ha Joon Chang

Quotes About Counterfeiting

"We may test the hypothesis that the State is largely interested in protecting itself rather than its subjects by asking: which category of crimes does the State pursue and punish most intensely—those against private citizens or those against itself?The gravest crimes in the States lexicon are almost invariably not invasions of private person or property, but dangers to its own contentment, for example, treason, desertion of a soldier to the enemy, failure to register for the draft, subversion and subversive conspiracy, assassination of rulers and such economic crimes against the State as counterfeiting its money or evasion of its income tax.Or compare the degree of zeal devoted to pursuing the man who assaults a policeman, with the attention that the State pays to the assault of an ordinary citizen. Yet, curiously, the States openly assigned priority to its own defense against the public strikes few people as inconsistent with its presumed raison detre." - Author: Murray N. Rothbard
