Claude Adrien Helvetius Quotes

"Discipline is simply the art of making the soldiers fear their officers more than the enemy."

Eric Schlosser Quotes

"Widespread introduction of the process [of irradiating foods] has thus far been impeded, however, by a reluctance among consumers to eat things that have been exposed to radiation. According to current USDA regulations, irradiated meat must be identified with a special label and with a radura (the internationally recognized symbol of radiation). The Beef Industry Food Safety Council - whose members include the meatpacking and fast food giants - has asked the USDA to change its rules and make the labeling of irradiated meat completely voluntary. The meatpacking industry is also working hard to get rid of the word irradiation,; much preferring the phrase cold pasteurization....From a purely scientific point of view, irradiation may be safe and effective. But he [a slaughterhouse engineer] is concerned about the introduction of highly complex electromagnetic and nuclear technology into slaughterhouses with a largely illiterate, non-English-speaking workforce."

"Because of racism, he cant govern effectively is not a great argument for re-election."

Protagoras Quotes

"Concerning the gods I cannot know either that they exist or that they do not exist, or what form they might have, for there is much to prevent ones knowing: the obscurity of the subject and the shortness of mans life."

Michelle Herman Quotes

"She had not made a decision to give up sex, only the clamor of romance, because it was exhausting her, doing her no good and too much harm..."

David Icke Quotes

"The Christian Bible is a symbolic book, not a literal one. The one Christians know as Jesus was actually a symbol for the sun. Ancient sun worshippers believed the sun died at the end of the winter solstice and then three days later it would be reborn at the start of its cycle - December 25."

Catherine Ashton Quotes

"In the EU you have half a billion people who share a common belief in democracy, in rights, in the kind of economic life we want."

Quotes About Flocks Of Birds

"What is more cheerful, now, in the fall of the year, than an open-wood-fire? Do you hear those little chirps and twitters coming out of that piece of apple-wood? Those are the ghosts of the robins and blue-birds that sang upon the bough when it was in blossom last Spring. In Summer whole flocks of them come fluttering about the fruit-trees under the window: so I have singing birds all the year round." - Author: Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Quotes About Chennai Flood

"I pushed her shiny blond hair away from her face and leaned down, our faces only inches apart. She inhaled softly, our lips so close I could feel her breath and the scent of her skin, like honeysuckle in springtime. She smelled like sweet tea and old books, like she had always been here.I pulled my fingers through her hair and held it at the back of her neck. Her skin was soft and warm, like a Mortal girls. There was no electric current, no shocks. We could kiss for as long as we wanted. If we had a fight, there wouldnt be a flood or a hurricane, or even a storm. I wouldnt find her on the ceiling of her bedroom. No windows would shatter. No exams would catch fire.Liv held up her face to be kissed.She wanted me." - Author: Kami Garcia

Quotes About Poverty In America

"All this is simply to say that all life is interrelated. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality; tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. As long as there is poverty in this world, no man can be totally rich even if he has a billion dollars. As long as diseases are rampant and millions of people cannot expect to live more than twenty or thirty years, no man can be totally healthy, even if he just got a clean bill of health from the finest clinic in America. Strangely enough, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be." - Author: Martin Luther King Jr.

It needs care and love! Which is more than Im getting from you!" - Author: Shelly Laurenston

Quotes About Blah Days

"The wild pursuit of status and wealth has destroyed our souls and our economy. Families live in sprawling mansions financed with mortgages they can no longer repay. Consumers recklessly rang up Coach handbags and Manolo Blahnik shoes on credit cards because they seemed to confer a sense of identity and merit. Our favorite hobby, besides television, used to be, until reality hit us like a tsunami, shopping. Shopping used to be the compensation for spending five days a week in tiny cubicles. American workers are ground down by corporations that have disempowered them, used them, and have now discarded them" - Author: Chris Hedges
