Joseph Weizenbaum Quotes

"Jeder ist immer erreichbar. Die ganze Welt beschleunigt sich, alles ist dringend, und wo alles dringend ist, ist nichts mehr dringend, und damit schlittern wir in eine Bedeutungslosigkeit hinein."

Gloria Smith Quotes

"Got to go sing in a few minutes... no, thats GOT to go sing in a few minutes, as in... GOT TO GO SING in a few minutes... hahaha Its an all consuming compassion/obsession... a drawing... a wonderful bliss... a union of soul and spirit, of notes and voice, of all of lifes vibrating essence. String theory... all of life is vibrating, is alive, and the life of that essence is music itself!!"

Paul Goodman Quotes

"But the self is precisely the integrator; it is the synthetic unity, as Kant said. It is the artist of life. It is only a small factor in the total organism/environment interaction, but it plays the crucial role of finding and making the meanings that we grow by."

Rita M Gross Quotes

"If one does not make an ego out of gender, one would still know whether one is a man or a woman, gay, straight, bisexual, transgender—whatever else we may think of. But those identities need to fit very loosely and be worn very lightly. All sense of privilege or deprivation that has developed around ones gender identity, all rigidity regarding proper roles and behaviors for the various genders, must be cut through."

Ernst Boris Chain Quotes

Warren Mitchell Quotes

"I knew that I did not have to buy into societys notion that I had to be handsome and healthy to be happy. I was in charge of my spaceship and it was my up, my down. I could choose to see this situation as a setback or as a starting point. I chose to begin life again."

Irenaeus Of Lyons Quotes

"He [Jesus] fought and conquered. On the one hand, he was man who struggled for his fathers and through his obedience cancelled their disobedience. On the other hand, he bound the strong one and freed the weak and bestowed salvation on his handiwork by abolishing sin. For he is our compassionate and merciful Lord who loves mankind ... Had not man conquered mans adversary, the enemy would not have been conquered justly. Again, had it not been God who bestowed salvation we would not possess it securely."

Quotes About Thanks For The Memories

"I sip my coffee. I look at the mountain, which is still doing its tricks, as you look at a still-beautiful face belonging to a person who was once your lover in another country years ago: with fond nostalgia, and recognition, but no real feelings save a secret astonishment that you are now strangers. Thanks. For the memories. It is ironic that the one thing that all religions recognize as separating us from our creator--our very self-consciousness--is also the one thing that divides us from our fellow creatures. It was a bitter birthday present from evolution, cutting us off at both ends." - Author: Annie Dillard

Quotes About Charity In The Bible

"Well, Espen, youre no drug addict, so why do you beg?" "Because its my mission to be mirror for mankind so that they can see which actions are great and which are small.""And which are great?"Espen sighed in despair, as though weary of repeating the obvious. "Charity. Sharing and helping your neighbor. The Bible deals with nothing else. In fact, you have to search extremely hard to find anything about sex before marriage, abortion, homosexuality, or a womans right to speak in public. But, of course, it is easier for Pharisees to talk aloud about subordinate clauses than to describe and perform the great actions the Bible leaves us in no doubt about: You have to give half of what you own to someone who has nothing. Thousands of people are dying every day without hearing the words of God because these Christians will not let go of their earthly goods. Im giving them a chance to reflect." - Author: Jo Nesbø

Quotes About Polite Conversation

"Silence is a mirror. So faithful, and yet so unexpected, is the relection it can throw back at men that they will go to almost any length to avoid seeing themselves in it, and if ever its duplicating surface is temporarily wiped clean of modern lifes ubiquitous hubbub, they will hasten to fog it over with such desperate personal noise devices as polite conversation, hummin, whistling, imaginary dialogue, schizophrenic babble, or, should it come to that, the clandestine cannonry of their own farting. Only in sleep is silence tolerated, and even there, most dreams have soundtracks. Since meditation is a deliberate descent into deep internal hush, a mute stare into the ultimate looking glass, it is regarded with suspicion by the nattering masses; with hostility by buisness interests (people sitting in silent serenity are seldom consuming goods); and with spite by a clergy whose windy authority it is seen to undermine and whose bombastic livelihood it is perceived to threaten." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Done Waiting For Him

"It was with some surprise that I saw that the person waiting for me at the airports exit was Adrian. A grin spread over my face, and I picked up the pace. I threw my arms around him, astonishing both of us. "I have never been happier to see you in my life," I said. He squeezed me tightly and then let me go, regarding me admiringly. "The dreams never do justice to real life, little dhampir. You look amazing.""And you look . . ." I studied him. He was dressed as nicely as always. His dark brown hair had that crafted messiness he liked, but his face—ah, well. As Id noted before, Simon had gotten a few good punches on him. One of Adrians eyes was swollen and ringed with bruises. Nonetheless, thinking about him and everything hed done . . . Well, none of the flaws mattered. " . . . Gorgeous." "Liar," he said."Couldnt Lissa have healed that black eye away?" "Its a badge of honor. Makes me seem manly." - Author: Richelle Mead

Quotes About Not Texting

"Whats not so great is that all this technology is destroying our social skills. Not only have we given up on writing letters to each other, we barely even talk to each other. People have become so accustomed to texting that theyre actually startled when the phone rings. Its like we suddenly all have Batphones. If it rings, there must be danger. Now we answer, "What happened? Is someone tied up in the old sawmill?""No, its Becky. I just called to say hi.""Well you scared me half to death. You cant just pick up the phone and try to talk to me like that. Dont the tips of your fingers work?" - Author: Ellen DeGeneres

Quotes About Earning Respect

"Law and custom are becoming the subjects of a new field of learning. The anarch endeavors to judge them ethnographically, historically, and also – I will probably come back to this – morally. The State will be generally satisfied with him; it will scarcely notice him In this respect he bears a certain resemblance to the criminal – say, the master spy – whose gifts are concealed behind a run-of-the-mill occupation." - Author: Ernst Jünger
