"No strike could ever be won with a Communist at its head since the employers would make victory impossible."

Johann Hari Quotes

"This denial is bizarre. Last time Chomsky denied something I attributed to him, it was Chomskys word against mine and there was no way to resolve this argument. This time, however, theres some fairly conclusive evidence. Look at http://blog.zmag.org/ttt/. It describes itself as the official weblog of Professor Noam Chomsky, and it is attached to Z Magazine, for which Chomsky has regularly written for over a decade. It claims Chomsky makes direct blog entries. Yet Chomsky claims he has nothing to with with it. Are we really meant to believe this? If it is true, why does he carry on writing for a magazine that publishes a false blog in his name?"

"We fear what we dont know, or whatever seems like a mystery to us."

"I was a dancer for fifteen years, and I think a lot of what dancing gives you crosses over so much into anything to do with fighting, martial arts, anything action."

"Words are born in thought, leaving lips, they acquire soul in the ears, yet sometimes this auditory magic does not make it as far as the mouth because it is swallowed dry."

"A good historian is timeless; although he is a patriot, he will never flatter his country in any respect."

Elaine White Quotes

"Were soldiers, Emily. If were not elders or council members then thats all we are. Were here to serve those above us. Were novel worthy, day walking, blood sucking, tortured souls trapped in a body that cant die for all eternity with no feelings, no emotions and no heart. We dont get to feel love, passion or desire. We do as were told, for the good of the clan and because were told to do it. And we protect people. So whatever grand delusions you have about being some kind of wonderful child and the masters favorite are just misguided attempts to feel human again. Get over it."

Quotes About Giving In The Bible

"Well, Espen, youre no drug addict, so why do you beg?" "Because its my mission to be mirror for mankind so that they can see which actions are great and which are small.""And which are great?"Espen sighed in despair, as though weary of repeating the obvious. "Charity. Sharing and helping your neighbor. The Bible deals with nothing else. In fact, you have to search extremely hard to find anything about sex before marriage, abortion, homosexuality, or a womans right to speak in public. But, of course, it is easier for Pharisees to talk aloud about subordinate clauses than to describe and perform the great actions the Bible leaves us in no doubt about: You have to give half of what you own to someone who has nothing. Thousands of people are dying every day without hearing the words of God because these Christians will not let go of their earthly goods. Im giving them a chance to reflect." - Author: Jo Nesbø

Quotes About Hula Hoops

"Smoke was a person with a sense of history. Do you know what I mean?" ...in truth, I DID know what she meant. Da Vinci, Martin Luther King, Jr., Genghis Kahn, Abraham Lincoln, Bette Davis - if you read their definitive biographies, you learned even when they were a month old, cooing in some wobbly crib in the middle of nowhere, they already had something historic about them. The way other kids had baseball, long division, Hot Wheels, and hula hoops, these kids had History and thus tended to be prone to colds, unpopular, sometimes plagued with a physical deformity (Lord Byrons clubfoot, Maughams severe stutter, for example), which pushed them into exile in their heads. It was there they began to dream of human anatomy, civil rights, conquering Asia, a lost speech and being (within a span of four years) a jezebel, a marked woman, a little fox and an old maid." - Author: Marisha Pessl

Quotes About The Library Of Alexandria

"They say that Caliph Omar, when consulted about what had to be done with the library of Alexandria, answered as follows: If the books of this library contain matters opposed to the Koran, they are bad and must be burned. If they contain only the doctrine of the Koran, burn them anyway, for they are superfluous. Our learned men have cited this reasoning as the height of absurdity. However, suppose Gregory the Great was there instead of Omar and the Gospel instead of the Koran. The library would still have been burned, and that might well have been the finest moment in the life of this illustrious pontiff." - Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau

Quotes About Genuine Smiles

"An ad that pretends to be art is -- at absolute best -- like somebody who smiles warmly at you only because he wants something from you. This is dishonest, but whats sinister is the cumulative effect that such dishonesty has on us: since it offers a perfect facsimile or simulacrum of goodwill without goodwills real spirit, it messes with our heads and eventually starts upping our defenses even in cases of genuine smiles and real art and true goodwill. It makes us feel confused and lonely and impotent and angry and scared. It causes despair." - Author: David Foster Wallace

Quotes About Racehorses

"Human beings are ultimately nothing but carriers-passageways- for genes. They ride us into the ground like racehorses from generation to generation. Genes dont think about what constitutes good or evil. They dont care whether we are happy or unhappy. Were just means to an end for them. The only thing they think about is what is most efficient for them." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Wison

"I will say this: the first film that I was on was In the Heat of the Night, that Norman Jewison directed with Sidney Poitier. Im on the set, and Im totally taking it for granted. Everyone is working for everyone else and pulling for the very best, and it makes everyone better because you feel that effort and concern and appreciation." - Author: Scott Wilson

Quotes About Spending Time With Grandchildren

"Some people center the universe around themselves; while making other people nothing but decorations to their existence. "I will do this and then I will do that and then people will think this about me and then people will think that about me, and then I will add that person to my life when the convenient time arrives, and this person over here would make a very convenient addition as well..." They build their own thrones for themselves, and add decorations all around their thrones. The problem with that is: it does not bring happiness. A throne must be built for you; it must not be you who builds your own throne. If so, everything that you think you are is only an illusion! And illusions dissolve one day. Poof!" - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About Reflecting Christ

"Christian writers, whether they like it or not, do not simply write for themselves; for good or ill, readers will see their work as reflecting Jesus Christ and his church. And if only for this reason - though there are other reasons - one must take great care when dealing with potentially controversial topics not to imagine ones every pronouncement preceded by Thus saith the Lord. The law of love, on which all the law and the prophets depend (Matt. 22:40), mandates charity toward ones opponents in argument." - Author: Alan Jacobs
