Michael A Mullett Quotes

"Humanists were people who wanted to return to ideas found in old Greek and Latin writing of Greece and Rome, written many centuries earlier. Christian Humanists also wanted to get back to these ideas, but they were mainly concerned with learning about the early Christian Church, before it had become involved with money-making and superstition. They wanted to read the books of the early Church, especially the gospels of Christ, in the original language of Greek, so that they would know exactly what the writings meant. The leader of the Christian Humanists was Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), who attacked superstitions in the Catholic Church in his writing."

Quotes About Cant

"Such applications were sometimes granted because the GDR, unlike any other eastern European country, could rid itself of malcontents by ditching them into West Germany, where they were automatically granted citizenship. The Stasi put all applicants under extreme scrutiny. People who applied to leave were, unsurprisingly, suspected of wanting to leave which was, other than by this long-winded and arbitrary process, a crime. An ‘application to leave was legal, but the authorities might, if the fancy took them, choose to see it as a statement of why you didnt like the GDR. In that case it became a Hetzschrift (a smear) or a Schmäschrift (a libel) and therefore a criminal offence." - Author: Anna Funder

Quotes About Barristers

"[T]he horrible thing about all legal officials, even the best, about all judges, magistrates, barristers, detectives, and policeman, is not that they are wicked (some of them are good), not that they are stupid (several of them are quite intelligent), it is simply that they have got used to it. Strictly they do not see the prisoner in the dock; all they see is the usual man in the usual place. They do not see the awful court of judgment; they only see their own workshop." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Seeming Strong

"However, one thing that grave illness does is to make you examine familiar principles and seemingly reliable sayings. And theres one that I find I am not saying with quite the same conviction as I once used to: In particular, I have slightly stopped issuing the announcement that "whatever doesnt kill me makes me stronger."In fact, I now sometimes wonder why I ever thought it profound...In the brute physical world, and the one encompassed by medicine, there are all too many things that could kill you, dont kill you, and then leave you considerably weaker." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Paris Love

"Now you are walking in Paris all alone in the crowdAs herds of bellowing buses drive byLoves anguish tightens your throatAs if you were never to be loved againIf you lived in the old days you would enter a monasteryYou are ashamed when you discover yourself reciting a prayerYou make fun of yourself and like the fire of Hell your laughter cracklesThe sparks of your laugh gild the depths of your lifeIts a painting hanging in a dark museumAnd sometimes you go and look at it close up" - Author: Guillaume Apollinaire

Quotes About Abadon

"Eszébe jutott Szerda megjegyzése, és önkéntelenül elmosolyodott: túl sok emberrel találkozott, akik mondogatták, hogy tilos elfojtani az érzéseket, ki kell mutatni az érzelmeket, szabadon kell ereszteni a fájdalmat. Árnyék úgy gondolta, sok minden szól az érzelmek elfojtása mellett. Ha elég sokáig és elég mélyen eltemeted őket, egy idő után nem érzel semmit." - Author: Neil Gaiman
