Stephen Cope Quotes

"The feminine comes to us in nature. Go outside. Look at the amazing waves of green, of lilacs, of blue mountains. We are in the presence of the manifestation right here. And shes reaching for you."

Michael J Gerson Quotes

"To restrict or legalize abortion, to allow or forbid gay marriage, a legislator would need to write and pass a law, get it signed by the president or a governor, and perhaps override a veto. A Supreme Court justice need only persuade four other people. If he or she is not internally constrained by the authority of a text, he or she is not constrained."

Diane Kelly Quotes

"Id learned how to handle a gun before I was fully potty trained."

Mark Fisher Quotes

"Deleuze and Guattari describe capitalism as a kind of dark potentiality which haunted all previous social systems. Capital, they argue, is the ‘unnamable Thing, the abomination, which primitive and feudal societies ‘warded off in advance. When it actually arrives, capitalism brings with it a massive desacralization of culture. It is a system which is no longer governed by any transcendent Law; on the contrary, it dismantles all such codes, only to re-install them on an ad hoc basis."

Jose N Harris Quotes

"One day, I saw a tiny nopalito (cactus sapling) growing not too far from an old tree. I wanted to dig it up and replant it near our house in Zacatecas. I told my mom that I would protect it from the wind and that I would water it every day so that it could grow nice and tall and strong. My mom frowned at me. "Youd be destroying what makes it special," she said. "Its a nopalito, it is its struggle that makes it so beautiful..."

Tara Taylor Quinn Quotes

"Im too intense. I feel too much. And when I experience certain sensations, I act. Even if the situation is one I should probably walk away from. But you know what?" She was feeling a little better. "Im never going to walk away, not from any of it. I cant. I am what I am. Im intense, just as my fiance said. I feel everything around me, and Im glad about that. I cant imagine life without the depth, without the magic that accompanies the pain."

Ophan Bunjos Quotes

"Harus menjadi pemberani pada hidup yang dipilih, harus menjadi pejuang pada hidup yang di luar pilihan."

Christian Nestell Bovee Quotes

"A failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough."

Sibilla Aleramo Quotes

"Il mio allontanamento dai volumi di scienza era una colpa assai meno grave di quella che consisteva nellaver trascurato di gettar gli occhi sul grande libro della vita."

PN Elrod Quotes

"Love is responsible for nearly every kind of insanity in the world though greed, vanity, and pure meanness contribute their portion to general misery."

Quotes About Life Experiences Making You Who You Are

"I think it was Alfred Hitchcock who said 90 percent of successful moviemaking is in the casting. The same is true in life. Who you are exposed to, who you choose to surround yourself with, is a unique variable in all of our experiences and it is hugely important in making us who we are. Seek out interesting characters, tough adversaries and strong mentors and your life can be rich, textured, highly entertaining and successful, like a Best Picture winner. Surround yourself with dullards, people of vanilla safety and unextraordinary ease, and you may find your life going straight to DVD." - Author: Rob Lowe

Quotes About Cloning Animals

"As Jeremy Bentham had asked about animals well over two hundred years ago, the question was not whether they could reason or talk, but could they suffer? And yet, somehow, it seemed to take more imagination for humans to identify with animal suffering than it did to conceive of space flight or cloning or nuclear fusion. Yes, she was a fanatic in the eyes of most of the country. . .Mostly, however, she just lacked patience for people who wouldnt accept her belief that humans inflicted needless agony on the animals around them, and they did so in numbers that were absolutely staggering." - Author: Chris Bohjalian

Quotes About Diversidade

"Há uma condescendência devastadora em sacrificar pessoas, especialmente crianças, no altar da "diversidade" e na virtude da preservação de uma variedade de tradições religiosas. O restante de nós vive feliz com nossos carros e computadores, vacinas e antibióticos. Mas vocês, pessoinhas exóticas com seus chapéus e calçolas, suas carroças, seu dialeto arcaico e suas casinhas de banho, vocês enriquecem nossas vidas. É claro que se deve permitir que vocês aprisionem suas crianças em seu túnel do tempo seiscentista, senão perderíamos uma coisa irrecuperável: uma parte da maravilhosa diversidade da cultura humana. Uma pequena parte de mim ver alguma coisa nisso. Mas a maior parte fica é com enjoo." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Cooking

"Taking solitude in stride was a sign of strength and of a willingness to take care of myself. This meant - among other things - working productively, remembering to leave the house, and eating well.

So why, when I was alone, did I find myself trying to subsist on cereal and water? Id need to learn to cook for one." - Author: Jenni Ferrari Adler

Quotes About About Friendship

I want to get over him, not lose him for good! How must he feel, with me not replying to his texts and e-mails like this? What kind of friend am I?" - Author: Abby McDonald
