But they will let you down."

Quotes About Communal Riots

"Some writers like to boil down headlines of liberal newspapers into fiction, so they say there shouldnt be communal riots, everybody should love each other, there shouldnt be boundaries or fundamentalism. But I think literature is more than that; these are political views which most of us hold anyway." - Author: Arundhati Roy

Quotes About Having Gun Control

"But for a younger generation of conservative operatives who would soon rise to power... They were true believers who meant what they said, whether it was No New Taxes or We are a Christian Nation. In fact, with their rigid doctrines, slash-and-burn style, and exaggerated sense of having been aggrieved, this new conservative leadership was eerily reminiscent of some of the New Lefts leaders during the sixties. As with their left-wing counterparts, this new vanguard of the right viewed politics as a contest not just between competing policy visions, but between good and evil. Activists in both parties began developing litmus tests, checklists of orthodoxy, leaving a Democrat who questioned abortion increasingly lonely, any Republican who championed gun control effectively marooned. In this Manichean struggle, compromise came to look like weakness, to be punished or purged. You were with us or you were against us. You had to choose sides." - Author: Barack Obama

Quotes About Were Meant To Be

"we simply cant drop everything and run away, can we?A warm wind kicked up, ruffling through his thick, dark hair. Very softly, he said, I see. Is this where you preach to me of how English civilization will save the savages?She hated this, *hated* the way he was suddenly looking at her - as though she were some unfamiliar specimen whose novelty was rapidly losing interest. Be fair, sir! All I meant was that weve created a society here. Laws, a justice system, a - postal service ... The argument sounded weak even to her own ears. I simply mean that to leave those things behind would hardly be simple." - Author: Meredith Duran

Quotes About Ascham

"I snorted. ‘For a great sultan who is lord and ruler of all that he surveys, his English is lamentably poor. He cant even spell England properly.Still holding the note, Mr Ascham looked up at me. ‘Is that so? Tell me, Bess, do you speak his language? Any Arabic or Turkish-Arabic?‘You know that I do not.‘Then however lamentable his English may be, he still speaks your language while you cannot speak his. To me, this gives him a considerable advantage over you. Always pause before you criticise, and never unduly criticise one who has made an effort at something you yourself have not even attempted." - Author: Matthew Reilly

Quotes About A Good Start In Life

"Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to a ceremony celebrating Blake Hartt and Livia McHugh. Today is not the start of their lives together. It will mark the day we all stood, clapped, and gave good wishes. But their fates were destined for each other long before they even met. True love, the kind that lasts forever, is very rare indeed. It takes compromise, continued growth, and trust."Cole paused to look from Blake to Livia and back again. "Livia and Blake have a head start on all those things," he continued. "Time has tested them already, asking a fresh love to face terrifying and life-changing tasks. These two had to find and hold onto their love, even when it felt like all was lost." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About Labor Day

"I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person." - Author: Og Mandino

Quotes About There Being No God

"I dont accept the currently fashionable assertion that any view is automatically as worthy of respect as any equal and opposite view. My view is that the moon is made of rock. If someone says to me "Well, you havent been there, have you? You havent seen it for yourself, so my view that it is made of Norwegian Beaver Cheese is equally valid" - then I cant even be bothered to argue. There is such a thing as the burden of proof, and in the case of god, as in the case of the composition of the moon, this has shifted radically. God used to be the best explanation wed got, and weve now got vastly better ones. God is no longer an explanation of anything, but has instead become something that would itself need an insurmountable amount of explaining. So I dont think that being convinced that there is no god is as irrational or arrogant a point of view as belief that there is. I dont think the matter calls for even-handedness at all." - Author: Douglas Adams
