Phil Wohl Quotes

"It was a rite of passage each year at Manhattan Life Insurance Company. The golden doors would open every summer to a new crop of bright-eyed college students, all of which were over-qualified for a job that required little more than a high school-equivalent GED and a fully loaded MetroCard."

Alisa Harris Quotes

"The more ardently I see humanity as a glorious abstract that must conform to my ideal of how the world should be, the harder it is for me to love the person on the other side of the picket line who is holding up progress. I can love the downtrodden in the abstract, but as I shivered under the bridge that night with Jorge, I realized that its harder to love the illegal immigrant with the bottle-slashed face and the body unwashed for weeks, the workers gathering to eat day-old bread and chicken and rice out of foam containers, the crowd of thousands clamoring for bread and fish and healing, the unclean woman hoping to touch the hem of the Saviors robe."

Quotes About Wealth In The Good Earth

"Lifting and Leaning There are two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.Not the good and the bad, for tis well understood The good are half bad and the bad are half good.Not the happy and sad, for the swift-flying years Brings each man his laughter and each man his tears.Not the rich and the poor, for to count a mans wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health.Not the humble and proud, for in lifes busy span He who puts on vain airs is not counted a man.No! The two kinds of people on earth I mean Are the people who lift and the people who lean.Wherever you go you will find the worlds masses Are ever divided in just two classes.And, strangely enough, you will find, too, I ween, There is only one lifter to twenty who lean.In which class are you? Are you easing the load Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?Or are you a leaner who lets others bear Your portion of worry and labor and care?" - Author: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Quotes About Sunshine And Clouds

"In general, I weathered even the worst sermons pretty well. They had the great virtue of causing my mind to wander. Some of the best things I have ever thought of I have thought of during bad sermons. Or I would look out the windows. In winter, when the windows were closed, the church seemed to admit the light strictly on its own terms, as if uneasy about the frank sunshine of this benighted world. In summer, when the sashes were raised, I watched with a great, eager pleasure the town and the fields beyond, the clouds, the trees, the movements of the air—but then the sermons would seem more improbable. I have always loved a window, especially an open one." - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Scientific Investigation

"Just as the dignity of man is based on his freedom--to the extent that he may even say no to God--likewise, the dignity of a science is based on that unconditional freedom which guarantees its independent search for truth. And just as human freedom must include the freedom to say no, so the freedom of scientific investigation must face the risk that its results will turn out to contradict religious beliefs and convictions. Only a scientist who is ready to fight militantly for such an autonomy of thought may triumphantly live to see how the results of his research eventually fit, without contradictions, in the truths of his belief." - Author: Viktor E. Frankl

Quotes About Frisbee

"Hed discovered that his memories of that summer were like bad movie montages - young lovers tossing a Frisbee in the park, sharing a melting ice-cream cone, bicycling along the river, laughing, talking, kissing, a sappy score drowning out the dialogue because the screenwriter had no idea what these two people might say to each other." - Author: Richard Russo

Quotes About Bible Damnation

"The book the man is reading is the Word of God, the Bible. It has become both the focus of and the reason for his current state of perplexity and distress. The heavy burden on his back is his awakened knowledge and sense of his own sin. The man discovers the frightful condition of his heart, which provokes genuine and constant fears of damnation. These fears are an ever-present weight upon his entire person.4." - Author: John Bunyan

Quotes About Voting Rights

"The House adjourned without voting on the bill, but the following year a similar bill—mandating equality in hotels and restaurants open to the public, in transportation facilities, in theaters and other public amusements and in the selection of juries—passed both chambers. The measure reached the White House about the time the two sides in Louisiana cobbled a compromise that allowed Grant to withdraw Sheridan and most of the federal troops. On March 1, 1875, the president signed the Civil Rights Act, the most ambitious affirmation of racial equality in American history until then (a distinction it would retain until the 1960s)." - Author: H.W. Brands

Quotes About Tana

"Andrés palpó la gasa delicadamente, llevándola hacia la ventana para mirar la luz que hería el recamado. Estuvo largo rato pensativo, examinando ese objeto vivo aún pero a punto de expirar, extendido levísimo en sus brazos, brillante en medio de todo el polvo." - Author: José Donoso

Quotes About Japanese Culture

"[Donald] Keene observed [in a book entitled The Pleasures of Japanese Literature, 1988] that the Japanese sense of beauty has long sharply differed from its Western counterpart: it has been dominated by a love of irregularity rather than symmetry, the impermanent rather than the eternal and the simple rather than the ornate. The reason owes nothing to climate or genetics, added Keene, but is the result of the actions of writers, painters and theorists, who had actively shaped the sense of beauty of their nation.Contrary to the Romantic belief that we each settle naturally on a fitting idea of beauty, it seems that our visual and emotional faculties in fact need constant external guidance to help them decide what they should take note of and appreciate. Culture is the word we have assigned to the force that assists us in identifying which of our many sensations we should focus on and apportion value to." - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About Anlamak

"Biriyle yüz yirmi yıl bir arada yaşasak,bize ne düşündüğümüzü sorsalar,onun karmaşık kişiliğinin hakkını vermemiz ve "Onu henüz tanımaya başladım" diye yanıtlamamız gerekir.Ancak bunun yerine,biriyle tanıştıktan iki dakika sonra bir izlenim oluşur zihnimizde: "Ondan hoşlandım/ Ondan hoşlanmadım".Biyolojik bir ihtiyacın ilkel kalıntısıdır bu tepki;mağara adamı,birisiyle karşı karşıya geldiğinde onun dost mu düşman mı olduğunu bir bakışta anlamak zorundadır." - Author: Alain de Botton
