[Inquisitor Lorsen's Thin Lip Curled. "There Is Truly Nothing In You Of What Separates Man From Animal, Is There? You Are Bereft Of Conscience. An Utter Absence Of Morality. You Have No Principle Beyond The Selfish."Cosca's Face Hardened As He Leaned Forwards. "Perhaps When You Have Faced As Many Disappointments And Suffered As Many Betrayals As I, You Will See It - There Is No Principle Beyond The Selfish, Inquisitor, And Men Are Animals. Conscience Is A Burden We Choose To Bear. Morality Is The Lie We Tell Ourselves To Make Its Bearing Easier. There Have Been Many Times In My Life When I Have Wished It Was Not So. But It Is So.]

"The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not."

John Hersey Quotes

"This private estate was far enough away from the explosion so that its bamboos, pines, laurel, and maples were still alive, and the green place invited refugees—partly because they believed that if the Americans came back, they would bomb only buildings; partly because the foliage seemed a center of coolness and life, and the estates exquisitely precise rock gardens, with their quiet pools and arching bridges, were very Japanese, normal, secure; and also partly (according to some who were there) because of an irresistible, atavistic urge to hide under leaves."

Caryll Houselander Quotes

"Christ asks for a home in your soul, where he can be at rest with you, where he can talk easily to you, where you and he, alone together, can laugh and be silent and be delighted with one another."

Sheila M Reindl Quotes

"Recovering is a process of coming to experience a sense of self. More precisely, it is a process of learning to sense ones self, to attune to ones subjective physical, psychic, and social self- experience. These womans core sense of shame and their difficulty tolerating painful emotions had led them to avoid turning their attention inward to their internal sense of things. In recovering, they "came to their senses" and learned to trust their sensed experience, in particular their sense of "enoughness""."

Mark Wigley Quotes

"The first treatise on the interior of the body, which is to say, the treatise that gave the body an interior , written by Henri De Mondeville in the fourteenth century, argues that the body is a house, the house of the soul, which like any house can only be maintained as such by constant surveillance of its openings. The womans body is seen as an inadequate enclosure because its boundaries are convoluted. While it is made of the same material as a mans body, it has ben turned inside out. Her house has been disordered, leaving its walls full of openings. Consequently, she must always occupy a second house, a building to protect her soul. Gradually this sense of vulnerability to the exterior was extended to all bodies which were then subjected to a kind of supervision traditionally given to the woman. The classical argument about her lack of self-control had been generalized."

Quotes About Better

"Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide." - Author: Michio Kaku

Quotes About Monomaniacal

"After reading Edgar Allan Poe. Something the critics have not noticed: a new literary world pointing to the literature of the 20th Century. Scientific miracles, fables on the pattern A+ B, a clear-sighted, sickly literature. No more poetry but analytic fantasy. Something monomaniacal. Things playing a more important part than people; love giving away to deductions and other forms of ideas, style, subject and interest. The basis of the novel transferred from the heart to the head, from the passion to the idea, from the drama to the denouement." - Author: Jules De Goncourt
