Jack Dee Quotes

"Well, I dont ever get excited. I havent been excited since I got a Chopper bicycle when I was about 12. Once you get older you realise theres always a catch to everything. So when I get, say, a commission to make a TV show, the catch is that you have to deliver something and then the sense of responsibility overwhelms the joy of the occasion."

Jacques Maritain Quotes

"A single idea, if it is right, saves us the labor of an infinity of experiences."

Nancy Missler Quotes

"Overcomers are not perfect. They fail just like the rest of us, but they keep on getting up, keep on repenting, and keep on being willing to surrender themselves to Christ and letting Him, who is the only perfect One, work through them."

R Joseph Hoffmann Quotes

"The division in human religion has always been between those who see the fall of man as a fall into freedom and those who see it as an act of defiance against the tyranny of an all-powerful father. But Adam and Eve were never in heaven; they were in the mud, and had to leave the only home they had ever known behind. And why? For choosing love and freedom over perpetual infancy and slavery of the will. Their sin was moral responsibility. Their reward is clear: "They have becomes gods--knowing good and evil." And for that, they were condemned to live in a world of discovery and choices."

Gabourey Sidibe Quotes

"Being an actress wasnt a plan at all, so whats happened to me is very strange. Life isnt very normal, even though Im still very much a normal girl. I ride the subway, I ride the bus, and all of that."

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Quotes

"As religion is now practiced and science is now practiced, there is no intersection between the two. That is for certain. And its not for want of trying. Over the centuries, many people - theologians as well scientists - have tried to explore points of intersection. And anytime anyone has declared that harmony has risen up, it is the consequence of religion acquiescing to scientific discovery. In every single case."

Joe Lhota Quotes

"My dad was a New York City cop. His father was a New York City fireman. And my mothers dad was a city taxi driver."

Barbara Cartland Quotes

"To sleep around is absolutely wrong for a woman; its degrading and it completely ruins her personality. Sooner or later it will destroy all that is feminine and beautiful and idealistic in her."

Quotes About Clement Attlee

"This historic general election, which showed that the British are well able to distinguish between patriotism and Toryism, brought Clement Attlee to the prime ministership. In the succeeding five years, Labor inaugurated the National Health Service, the first and boldest experiment in socialized medicine. It took into public ownership all the vital (and bankrupted) utilities of the coal, gas, electricity and railway industries. It even nibbled at the fiefdoms and baronies of private steel, air transport and trucking. It negotiated the long overdue independence of India. It did all this, in a country bled white by the World War and subject to all manner of unpopular rationing and controls, without losing a single midterm by-election (a standard not equaled by any government of any party since). And it was returned to office at the end of a crowded term." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Abortionists

"Nw a kind of no-mans-land occupied by a neo-Elizabethan hugger-mugger of racketeers, drug dealers, gangsters and abortionists, the shark-toothed area seemed only a rowdier version of the city all around — a freewheeling, free-spending center of free enterprise." - Author: Pico Iyer

Quotes About Confusion In A Relationship

"I said that the question about death, and more precisely, the confusion about death, lies at the very heart of human understanding, and in the final analysis, the relation of man to life, that which we call his worldview, is ultimately determined by his relationship to death. All of civilization seems to be permeated with a passionate obsession to stifle this fear of death and the sense of the meaninglessness of life that oozes out of it like a slow-dripping poison. What is this intense conflict with religion, if nothing other than a mindless attempt to root out of human consciousness the memory and concern with death and consequently the question: why do I live in this brief and fragile life?" - Author: Alexander Schmemann

Quotes About Life From The Bible

"Dragons and Afterlife .. I dont see any difference between both of them, we didnt see neither the dragons nor afterlife, we just heard about them and both of them are superstitions with no scientific or logical evidence .. But the only reason you believe in afterlife unlike dragons is that youve been taught to believe in it from your birthday. now if they taught you to believe in dragons and if it were mentioned in your Bible or your holy book you would have believed in it .. herein lies the danger of religions, you can believe something exists without any evidence .. and thats why you should only follow science and let go of your religious teachings" - Author: Sherif Gaber
