"Either you make things happen or you quit."

Roger Mudd Quotes

"And what it depends on, of course, is whether the story itself is worth the ethical compromise it requires and whether the competition is onto the story."

Lockes Quotes

"When once we quit the basis of sensation, all is in the wind. To talk of immaterial existences, is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, God, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no God, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise. But I believe that I am supported in my creed of Materialism by the Lockes, the Tracys, and the Stewarts (Letter to John Adams Monticello, Aug. 15, 1820)."

Bernard Kouchner Quotes

Paula Heller Garland Quotes

"I had to ask myself why Im continuing to engage in behavior I knew hurt. What was my payoff? Did it confirm my belief I was not enough? Did I think I needed to suffer? Did I think I could save him? Why not save myself instead? What a miserable realization that I knew all of this yet failed to take action."

Anton Rubinstein Quotes

"Pianists call me a composer, composers call me a pianist. The classicists think me a futurist, and the futurists call me a reactionary."

Wolfgang Tillmans Quotes

"On the one hand I follow a vocation because I have an ability that I should exercise, but I want to use it for a reason, because I dont see that the freedoms that I enjoy are God-given realities. So I have a very healthy, activist general tension in me which feels that no, this is not gratuitous, it is important to keep this in focus."

Louis E Boone Quotes

"Dont fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have."

Quotes About Horrible Coworkers

"To believe in explanations is good, because it means you may believe also that beneath the chaotic, mindless jumble of everything, beneath the horrible disjunction you feel at every moment between you and all you are not, there dwells in the universe a secret harmony, a coherence and rightness like a balanced equation thats out of reach for now but some day will reveal itself in its entirety." - Author: Paul Murray

Quotes About Coherence

"My last chance had vanished into itself like a snail coiling up into his shell. Insidiously I had lost my grip, and now this was it. I thought all this without much emotion. I really didnt care anymore. I couldnt hang on anymore. I didnt have the guts to kill myself, but I didnt want it to continue. I walked a couple of blocks, empty, listless, and wished I could cry. ...The diabolic hope, the purposeful pulsing of blood, the flight into coherence allowed for some rationalizing an afterlife. A new theology was evolving, one that had a faith-in-death clause. It was evolved when I kicked a dead waterbug on the pavement. It was dried out, hollowed, emptied, like some kind of shell. Maybe, I thought, its body is a shell, maybe all bodies are shells. We hatch and die. Our spirit or something like that is the yoke: it lives the real life, the true life. It wasnt comforting." - Author: Arthur Nersesian

Quotes About Energizes

"I often hear people say that they read to escape reality, but I believe that what theyre really doing is reading to find reason for hope, to find strength. While a bad book leaves readers with a sense of hopelessness and despair, a good novel, through stories of values realized, of wrongs righted, can bring to readers a connection to the wonder of life. A good novel shows how life can and ought to be lived. It not only entertains but energizes and uplifts readers." - Author: Terry Goodkind

Quotes About America Funny

"Needs? I guess that is what bothers so many folks. They keep expanding their needs until they are dependent on too many things and too many other people... I wonder how many things in the average American home could be eliminated if the question were asked, "Must I really have this?" I guess most of the extras are chalked up to comfort or saving time.Funny thing about comfort - one mans comfort is another mans misery. Most people dot work hard enough physically anymore, and comfort is not easy to find. It is surprising how comfortable a hard bunk can be after you come down off a mountain." - Author: Richard Proenneke
