Cleon T Day III Quotes

Carey McWilliams Quotes

"A preoccupation with power - black power, student power, flower power, poor power, the power structure - is the striking aspect of the American political scene at the moment. Oddly enough, obsession with power goes hand in hand with a fear of power. Some of the New Left groups that talk the toughest about power are extremely reluctant to see power operate in any institutional form; within their own organizations, they shun hierarchies and formally structured relations of authority. What the preoccupation with power reflects, essentially, is a deep=seated, pervasive feeling of powerlessness."

Irenaeus Of Lyons Quotes

"He [Jesus] fought and conquered. On the one hand, he was man who struggled for his fathers and through his obedience cancelled their disobedience. On the other hand, he bound the strong one and freed the weak and bestowed salvation on his handiwork by abolishing sin. For he is our compassionate and merciful Lord who loves mankind ... Had not man conquered mans adversary, the enemy would not have been conquered justly. Again, had it not been God who bestowed salvation we would not possess it securely."

Daniel Keyes Quotes

"Im not close to him." He looked at me defiantly. "But hes put his whole life into this. Hes no Freud or Jung or Pavlov or Watson, but hes doing something important and I respect his dedication - maybe even more because hes just an ordinary man trying to do a great mans work, while the great men are all busy making bombs."

Janet Leigh Quotes

"In order to dream, you need to have a springboard which is the facts... It gives it that touch of reality, and I think thats quite important... truth with fiction."

Quotes About Singing Loudly

"Water, wind and birdsong were the echoes in this quiet place of a great chiming symphony that was surging around the world. Knee-deep in grasses and moon daisies, Stella stood and listened, swaying a little as the flowers and trees were swaying, her spirit voice singing loudly, though her lips were still, and every pulse in her body beating its hammer strokes in time to the song." - Author: Elizabeth Goudge

Quotes About Mccarthyism

Quotes About Withered Roses

"That love, which is the highest joy, which is divine simplicity itself, is not for you moderns, you children of reflection. It works only evil in you. As soon as you wish to be natural, you becomecommon. To you nature seems something hostile; you have made devils out of the smiling gods of Greece, and out of me a demon. You can only exorcise and curse me, or slay yourselves in bacchantic madness before my altar. And if ever one of you has had the courage to kiss my red mouth, he makes a barefoot pilgrimage to Rome in penitential robes and expects flowers to grow from his withered staff, while under my feet roses, violets, and myrtles spring up every hour, but their fragrance does not agree with you. Stay among your northern fogs and Christian incense; let us pagans remain under the debris, beneath the lava; do not disinter us." - Author: Leopold von Sacher Masoch

Quotes About Composer Love

"Leave off driving your composers. It might prove to be as dangerous as it is generally unnecessary. After all, composing cannot be turned out like spinning or sewing. Some respected colleagues (Bach, Mozart, Schubert) have spoilt the world terribly. But if we cant imitate them in the beauty of their writing, we should certainly beware of seeking to match the speed of their writing. It would also be unjust to put all the blame on idleness alone. Many factors combine to make writing harder for us (my contemporaries), and especially me. If, incidentally, they would use us poets for some other purpose, they would see that we are thoroughly and naturally industrious dispositions . . . . I have no time: otherwise I should love to chat on the difficulty of composing and how irresponsible publishers are." - Author: Johannes Brahms

Quotes About Evangelicals

To honor that Word as he deserves to be honored,evangelicals must know both Christ and what he has made." - Author: Mark A. Noll
