Alex Bledsoe Quotes

"It was still late summer elsewhere, but here, high in Appalachia, fall was coming; for the last three mornings, shed been able to see her breath. The woods, which started twenty feet back from her backdoor like a solid wall, showed only hints of the impending autumn. A few leaves near the treetops had turned, but most were full and green. Visible in the distance, the Widows Tree towered above the forest. Its leaves were the most stubborn, tenaciously holding on sometimes until spring if the winter was mild. It was a transitional period, when the world changed its cycle and opened a window during which people might also change, if they had the inclination."

Stephen Fry Quotes

"I was in Christopher Columbus, and sported its blue badge with great pride. It took me many years to understand or truly believe that Columbus was actually Italian. Even to this day I cant fully accept it. Why would a school in the heart of England choose a foreign hero? Perhaps they were unaware of his nationality themselves. It was common knowledge that the British discovered everything – trains, democracy, television, printing, jets, hover-crafts, the telephone, penicillin, the flush lavatory and Australia, so it was reasonable to assume Christopher Columbus must have been a Briton."

Ed Stetzer Quotes

"Barna is correct when he writes, "After fifteen years of diligent digging into the world around me, I have reached several conclusions about the future of the Christian church in America. The central conclusion is that the American church is dying due to lack of strong spiritual leadership. In this time of unprecedented opportunity and plentiful resources, the church is actually losing influence. The primary reason is the lack of leadership. Nothing is more important than leadership."7"

Dane Hatchell Quotes

"Why is it so important for me to forgive that son-of-a-bitch? Im not the one at fault here. It shouldnt be about me. Hes the one that did wrong. Screw his feelings. He should feel like hes hated for what he did." Lisa added another used tissue to the growing pile on the table.Lyn warmly smiled. "Forgiving Byron isnt for his sake, its for yours. The block in your lifes road can only be removed if you forgive him for what he did. If you dont, youll just keep bumping into that block again and again. The life you live will be miserable. Youll never be able to break the chains of the past."Lisa listened and let the words sink into her subconscious. She realized the only way to get to the end of the road was to take the first step. There was a block preventing her from moving forward in life. She had to find a way past it."

Anthony Bourdain Quotes

"In another telling anomaly of the meat-grinding business, many of the larger slaughterhouses will sell their product only to grinders who agree to not test their product for E. coli contamination--until after its run through a grinder with a whole bunch of other meat from other sources...Its like demanding of a date that she have unprotected sex with four or five other guys immediately before sleeping with you--just so she cant point the finger directly at you should she later test positive for clap."

Quotes About Natural History Museums

"If humans one day become extinct from a catastrophic collision, there would be no greater tragedy in the history of life in the universe. Not because we lacked the brain power to protect ourselves but because we lacked the foresight. The dominant species that replaces us in post-apocalyptic Earth just might wonder, as they gaze upon our mounted skeletons in their natural history museums, why large-headed Homo sapiens fared no better than the proverbially pea-brained dinosaurs." - Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quotes About The Haves And Have Nots

"There are two visions of America a half century from now. One is of a society more divided between the haves and the have-nots, a country in which the rich live in gated communities, send their children to expensive schools, and have access to first-rate medical care. Meanwhile, the rest live in a world marked by insecurity, at best mediocre education, and in effect rationed health care―they hope and pray they dont get seriously sick. At the bottom are millions of young people alienated and without hope. I have seen that picture in many developing countries; economists have given it a name, a dual economy, two societies living side by side, but hardly knowing each other, hardly imagining what life is like for the other. Whether we will fall to the depths of some countries, where the gates grow higher and the societies split farther and farther apart, I do not know. It is, however, the nightmare towards which we are slowly marching." - Author: Joseph E. Stiglitz

Quotes About Stopping Trying

"...it pointed to an alternative approach, a ‘negative path to happiness, that entailed taking a radically different stance towards those things that most of us spend our lives trying to avoid. It involved learning to enjoy uncertainty, embracing insecurity, stopping trying to think positively, becoming familiar with failure, even learning to value death. In short, all these people seemed to agree that in order to be truly happy, we might actually need to be willing to experience more negative emotions—or, at the very least to learn to stop running quite so hard from them." - Author: Oliver Burkeman

Quotes About Pullman Strike

"As a child, he had hardened his heart and learned to take their punches. He had learned to spit back and take down anyone who cast a jaundiced eye or who made a comment about either him, his mother, or his sister.Hed told himself that he didnt need anyones love or caring. And so he had learned to live like a feral animal, always ready to strike out when someone tried to touch him." - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Inspirational Fishermen

"though the only spout in sight was that of a Fin-Back, belonging to the species of uncapturable whales, because of its incredible power of swimming. Nevertheless, the Fin-Backs spout is so similar to the Sperm Whales, that by unskilful fishermen it is often mistaken for it. And consequently Derick and all his host were now in valiant chase of this unnearable brute. The Virgin crowding all sail, made after her four young keels, and thus they all disappeared far to leeward, still in bold, hopeful chase.Oh! many are the Fin-Backs, and many are the Dericks, my friend." - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Idle

"What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? (Just to give you an idea, Prousts reply was To be separated from Mama.) I think that the lowest depth of misery ought to be distinguished from the highest pitch of anguish. In the lower depths come enforced idleness, sexual boredom, and/or impotence. At the highest pitch, the death of a friend or even the fear of the death of a child." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Feeling Good

"As a rule, we dont like to feel to sad or lonely or depressed. So why do we like music (or books or movies) that evoke in us those same negative emotions? Why do we choose to experience in art the very feelings we avoid in real life?Aristotle deals with a similar question in his analysis of tragedy. Tragedy, after all, is pretty gruesome. […] Theres Sophocless Oedipus, who blinds himself after learning that he has killed his father and slept with his mother. Why would anyone watch this stuff? Wouldnt it be sick to enjoy watching it? […] Tragedys pleasure doesnt make us feel "good" in any straightforward sense. On the contrary, Aristotle says, the real goal of tragedy is to evoke pity and fear in the audience. Now, to speak of the pleasure of pity and fear is almost oxymoronic. But the point of bringing about these emotions is to achieve catharsis of them - a cleansing, a purification, a purging, or release. Catharsis is at the core of tragedys appeal." - Author: Brandon W.
