Mika Waltari Quotes

"During my life I have seen, known, and lost too much to be the prey of vain dread; and, as for the hope of immortality, I am as weary of that as I am of gods and kings. For my own sake only I write this; and herein I differ from all other writers, past and to come."

James KA Smith Quotes

"By calling into question the very ideal of a universal, autonomous reason (which was, in the Enlightenment, the basis for rejecting religious thought) and further demonstrating that all knowledge is grounded in narrative or myth, Lyotard relativizes (secular) philosophys claim to autonomy and so grants the legitimacy of a philosophy that grounds itself in Christian faith. Previously such a distinctly Christian philosophy would have been exiled from the pure arena of philosophy because of its infection with bias and prejudice. Lyotards critique, however, demonstrates that no philosophy - indeed, no knowledge - is untainted by prejudice or faith commitments. In this way the playing field is leveled, and new opportunities to voice a Christian philosophy are created. Thus Lyotards postmodern critique of metanarratives, rather than being a formidable foe of Christian faith and thought, can in fact be enlisted as an ally in the construction of a Christian philosophy."

Siegfried Kracauer Quotes

"Es gibt eine Menge phantastischer E.T.A.-Hoffmann-Figuren unter den Angestellten vorgerückteren Alters. Irgendwo sind sie steckengeblieben und erfüllen seitdem ununterbrochen banale Funktionen, die alles andere eher als unheimlich sind."

"People dont know that New York really is just made up of a group of very small neighborhoods."

Wendy Liebman Quotes

"Ive been pitching a show of five female stand-up comedians through the generations, from Phyllis Diller to Amy Schumer, so when I got an e-mail asking me if I would participate in the Women in Comedy Festival, I was thrilled."

Dolores Cannon Quotes

"The awakening is the purpose. The awakening of the fact that in essence we are light, we are love. Each cell of our body, each cell and molecule of everything. The power source that runs all life is light. So to awaken to that knowledge, and to desire to operate in that realm, and to believe that it is possible, are all factors that will put you there."

Wole Soyinka Quotes

"There is only one home to the life of a river-mussel; there is only one home to the life of a tortoise; there is only one shell to the soul of man: there is only one world to the spirit of our race. If that world leaves its course and smashes on boulders of the great void, whose world will give us shelter?"

Quotes About Visual Effects

"I learned first of all not to be intimidated by any visual effects that I dont understand. It can all be learned. You can then use them as tools to tell your story. I also learned that you have to be really vigilant, the more complex the movie, to not lose yourself and to not lose sight of the priority." - Author: Shawn Levy

Quotes About Something Special

"Do not let yourself get in your own way. Dont judge yourself and knock yourself down. There is enough of that out there already. Remember: you are an artist, and you bring something special to this craft. Take in notes and criticism, but dont let them define you. Dont try to become a watered down version of yourself." - Author: Valerie Azlynn

Quotes About Civic Education

"There is only one Education, and it has only one goal: the freedom of the mind. Anything that needs an adjective, be it civics education, or socialist education, or Christian education, or whatever-you-like education, is not education, and it has some different goal. The very existence of modified "educations" is testimony to the fact that their proponents cannot bring about what they want in a mind that is free. An "education" that cannot do its work in a free mind, and so must "teach" by homily and precept in the service of these feelings and attitudes and beliefs rather than those, is pure and unmistakable tyranny." - Author: Richard Mitchell

Quotes About Efforts

"A need for approval lies behind all efforts of evangelism. If someone else can be convinced, that will show us that we are on the right path. The attempt to convince someone of anything is a mark of insecurity. (173)" - Author: Ravi Ravindra

Quotes About Sonne

"« Toute communauté, quelle soit familiale ou autre, nous est haissable, dégradante. Nous sommes ensemble dans une honte de principe davoir à vivre la vie. Cest là que nous sommes au plus profond de notre histoire commune, celle dêtre tous les trois des enfants de cette personne de bonne foi, notre mère, que la société a assassinée. Nous sommes du côté de cette société qui a réduit ma mère au désespoir. À cause de ce quon a fait à notre mère si aimable, si confiante, nous haïssons la vie, nous nous haïssons." - Author: Marguerite Duras

Quotes About Not Being Perfect Person

"When describing me, Tracy often refers to a well-known concept of physics: inertia. As Newton avers in his first law: An object that is not moving will not move until a force acts upon it. An object that is moving will not change its velocity until a net force acts upon it. In other words, depending on whats happening in my life at any given moment, I can either be the laziest human being on the planet, or the busiest. Im perfectly content to do absolutely nothing until Im catalyzed by some person or project, and then I go nonstop until some countervailing force acts upon me, and I revert back to static mode." - Author: Michael J. Fox

Quotes About Not Feeling Wanted

"Just as we may, through an appalled realization that we were unaware of what was going on in the mind of one we thought we knew, come to wonder how we ever know what another person is thinking or feeling, so too we may, having on some occasion wanted badly to understand and having clearly failed, come to wonder how we ever manage to understand, and how we know that we have succeeded." - Author: Patrick Wilson

Quotes About Durrell

"The Bear had once confided to me that Durrells ego could fit snugly in the basilica of St. Peters in Rome but in very few other public places. This runaway megalomania marked him as a blood member of the fraternity of generals. If looks alone could make generals, Durrell would have been a cinch. He was built lean and slim and dark, like a Doberman. A man of breeding and refrigerated intelligence, he ordered his life like a table of logarithms." - Author: Pat Conroy
