Anu Silfverberg Quotes

"Eräs tuttu mies kysyi joskus, luinko sen lopulta loppuun asti. Hän arveli, ettei itse voisi lukea, koska "kokemus olisi niin masentava". Niin, luin kirjan ja menetin viikon yöunet. Mutta olen silti yhä tässä, voin hyvin. Juuri siksi juuri sellaiset kirjat on luettava. Tietäminen on vähintä, mitä voimme tehdä. Olemme sen velkaa."

Quotes About Our Messed Up Society

Quotes About Mothers And Their Sons

"Some mothers seem to have the capacity and energy to make their childrens clothes, bake, give piano lessons, go to Relief Society, teach Sunday School, attend parent-teacher association meetings, and so on. Other mothers look upon such women as models and feel inadequate, depressed, and think they are failures when they make comparisons... Sisters, do not allow yourselves to be made to feel inadequate or frustrated because you cannot do everything others seem to be accomplishing. Rather, each should assess her own situation, her own energy, and her own talents, and then choose the best way to mold her family into a team, a unit that works together and supports each other. Only you and your Father in Heaven know your needs, strengths, and desires. Around this knowledge your personal course must be charted and your choices made." - Author: Marvin J. Ashton

Quotes About Not Believing In Magic

"Transition and change - guaranteed to cause anxiety. That anxiety shows itself in physical and behavioral ways, but also with thoughts (sometimes really crazy ones). This is the (primitive/automatic) brains way of keeping us safe from the danger of change. We end up getting so involved with the feeling and thoughts of anxiety, we get distracted from the "danger". If we trust the anxiety then our primitive brain has succeeded in "protecting" us from the danger. I suggest not believing, trusting, or taking direction from the anxiety and continue your pursuits forward. Then, you will be amazed at your ability to attract and reveal your true capabilities, your light, your magic." - Author: Charles F. Glassman

Quotes About Cheaters Never Win

"People do more for their fellows than return favors and punish cheaters. They often perform generous acts without the slightest hope for payback ranging from leaving a tip in a restaurant they will never visit again to throwing themselves on a live grenade to save their brothers in arms. [Robert] Trivers together with the economists Robert Frank and Jack Hirshleifer has pointed out that pure magnanimity can evolve in an environment of people seeking to discriminate fair weather friends from loyal allies. Signs of heartfelt loyalty and generosity serve as guarantors of one s promises reducing a partner s worry that you will default on them. The best way to convince a skeptic that you are trustworthy and generous is to be trustworthy and generous." - Author: Steven Pinker

Quotes About Being Kind And Helping Others

Then at any moment we could turn it to whatever side we felt like being and the adults could treat us accordingly." - Author: John Marsden
