Rudolf Erich Raspe Quotes

"If the Baron meets with a parcel of negro ships carrying whites into slavery to work upon their plantations in a cold climate, should we therefore imagine that he intends a reflection on the present traffic in human flesh? And that, if the negroes should do so, it would be simple justice, as retaliation is the law of God! If we were to think this a reflection on any present commercial or political matter, we should be tempted to imagine, perhaps, some political ideas conveyed in every page, in every sentence of the whole. Whether such things are or are not the intentions of the Baron the reader must judge."

Quotes About Politics And Family

"Ultimately, totalitarianism is the only sort of politics that can truly serve the sky-gods purpose. Any movement of a liberal nature endangers his authority and that of his delegates on earth. One God, one King, one Pope, one master in the factory, one father-leader in the family at home." - Author: Gore Vidal

Quotes About Showing Off

"I looked into his sandy brown eyes, at one with the hair. At the business- like outward presentation of the man who daily printed sneers, innuendo, distrust and spite and spoke without showing a trace of them. Off the record, I said,bash his face in." - Author: Dick Francis

Quotes About Horrible Parents

"When I was young - really young - I used to think that the kids who had money, who were popular at school and who did well at things must have had horrible home lives - abusive parents or nasty siblings or lived in cupboard under stairs.Its kind of sick when you think about it, but what I figured was that life should be fair - everyone had to have good and bad things in their lives, and no one could have a wholly good life or a wholly bad life because that would upset the balance of things.I know now that I was wrong." - Author: Steph Bowe

Quotes About Tips

"But here there were houses full of *stuff*, fancy sheets woven with silk floss as soft as a babys bum; fancy washstands carved of dark wood that glowed like cherries where the light hit it; curtains the shade of the summer sky, heavy and glossy and smooth to the touch. The velvet-flocked wallpaper was so soft beneath her fingertips that had her eyes been closed, she might have thought she was brushing the belly of a rabbit. And the stool in the corner! One wouldnt imagine youd get too fancy with such a piece, but this stool was covered with embroidery so fine that her knuckles ached just looking at the stitches. Unbelievable. The rich even spoiled their arses!" - Author: Meredith Duran

Quotes About Mom And Son Relationship

As long as either person is still alive, that relationship survives. (It changes, but it survives.)" - Author: John Green

Quotes About Unconditional Love Of A Sister

"SONNET 57Being your slave, what should I do but tend Upon the hours and times of your desire? I have no precious time at all to spend, Nor services to do, till you require. Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hourWhilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,Nor think the bitterness of absence sour When you have bid your servant once adieu; Nor dare I question with my jealous thought Where you may be, or your affairs suppose, But, like a sad slave, stay and think of noughtSave, where you are how happy you make those. So true a fool is love that in your will, Though you do any thing, he thinks no ill." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About The Roman Empire

"When Edward Gibbon was writing about the fall of the Roman Empire in the late 18th century, he could argue that transportation hadnt changed since ancient times. An imperial messenger on the Roman roads could get from Rome to London even faster in A.D. 100 than in 1750. But by 1850, and even more obviously today, all of that has changed." - Author: Walter Russell Mead

Quotes About Good Morning To Him

"Swinging the door open, I took a sip. All of the coffee in the world wouldnt help if more visitors showed up at my door this early in the morning but the caffeine fortification was a bonus. The delivery guy pushed his clipboard at me. I held up my cup and raided my eyebrows.We had an entire conversation in the next seven seconds with our eyes and eyebrows.I told him that I wasnt giving up my coffee for his delivery. He told me that if Id just sign on the damned dotted line he would get the hell out of here.I replied in turn that if hed hold the clipboard instead of shoving it at me (I threw in a nod here for good measure), Id sign the damned line.He finally sighed, turned the clipboard around and held the pen out.I braced the door with my hip, grabbed the pen and scrawled Wilma Flinstone on the paper." - Author: Nicole Hamlett
