Quotes About Pope Benedict

"New Rule: Let the Pope be Pope. An animal-rights group in Italy has asked Pope Benedict to give up his fur-trimmed cape and hat. To which the Pope replied, "Dont be hatin on my cape, bitch." Sorry, but Popes are the original divas, they invented bling, theyve been wearing outlandish outfits for a thousand years--almost as long as Elton John. The clothes, the jewels, the fancy palace...Those arent just symbols of the Papacy, they are the Papacy. The day the Pope shows up on the balcony in a pair of jeans and polo shirt is the day a billion Catholics go, "What the hell were we thinking?" - Author: Bill Maher

Quotes About Pinching Cheeks

"Or she would look at him with a sullen expression, once again he would see before him a face worthy of figuring in Botticellis Life of Moses, he would place her in it, he would give her neck the necessary inclination; and when he had well and truly painted her in distemper, in the fifteenth century, on the wall of the Sistine Chapel, the idea that she had nevertheless remained here, by the piano, in the present moment, ready to be kissed and possessed, the idea of her materiality and her life would intoxicate him with such force that, his eyes distracted, his jaw tensed as though to devour her, he would swoop down upon that Botticelli virgin and begin pinching her cheeks." - Author: Marcel Proust

Quotes About Outside Beauty

"At the foot of the mountain, the park ended and suddenly all was squalor again. I was once more struck by this strange compartmentalization that goes on in America -- a belief that no commercial activities must be allowed inside the park, but permitting unrestrained development outside, even though the landscape there may be just as outstanding. America has never quite grasped that you can live in a place without making it ugly, that beauty doesnt have to be confined behind fences, as if a national park were a sort of zoo for nature." - Author: Bill Bryson

Quotes About Greed And Pride

"The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility...According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Gaap

"De ijskoningin van de pose liet zich het liefst van al portretteren in een decor van bloemen of struiken. Ze had ook de eigenaardige tic deze bloemen of struiken te moeten aanraken voor de camera.
