Quotes About Shifting Focus

"All Renaissance drama, especially the works of Marlowe and Shakespeare, is profoundly concerned with shifting power relations within society. The individual was a new force in relation to the state. The threat of rebellion, of the overturning of established order, was forcefully brought home to the Elizabethan public by the revolt of the Earl of Essex, once the Queens favourite. The contemporary debate questioned the relationship between individual life, the power and authority of the state, and the establishing of moral absolutes. Where mediaeval drama was largely used as a means of showing Gods designs, drama in Renaissance England focuses on man, and becomes a way of exploring his weaknesses, depravities, flaws - and qualities." - Author: Ronald Carter

Quotes About Science And Faith

"Then every man would be as a god, you see. The result of this, of course, would be that there would no longer be any gods, only men.

Quotes About Mass Extinction

"We tell our children theyre trapped like rats on a doomed, bankrupt, gangster-haunted planet with dwindling resources, with nothing to look forward to but rising sea levels and imminent mass extinctions, then raise a disapproving eyebrow when, in response, they dress in black, cut themselves with razors, starve themselves, gorge themselves, or kill one another." - Author: Grant Morrison

Quotes About Cute Relationships

"...I became acutely aware of an unusual ability--a divine gift, I believe--of extraordinary eye and hand coordination. Its my belief that God gives us all gifts, special abilities that we have the privilege of developing to help us serve Him and humanity. And the gift of eye and hand coordination has been an invaluable asset in surgery. This gift goes beyond eye-hand coordination, encompassing the ability to understand physical relationships, to think in three dimensions. Good surgeons must understand the consequences of each action, for theyre often not able to see whats happening to see on the other side of the area in which the area theyre actually working." - Author: Ben Carson
