Joanna Macy Quotes

"The refusal to feel takes a heavy toll. Not only is there an impoverishment of our emotional and sensory life, flowers are dimmer and less fragrant, our loves less ecstaticâ but this psychic numbing also impedes our capacity to process and respond to information. The energy expended in pushing down despair is diverted from more creative uses, depleting the resilience and imagination needed for fresh visions and strategies."

Paul Cartledge Quotes

"All history is present history in the sense that the concerns of the present are bound somehow to affect the way history is studied and written. All history is also personal, since it is impossible to avoid the influence of ones own opinions and prejudices on the selection and emphasis of ones historical material."

Nicole Ireland Quotes

"How am I going to tell the kids? How do I tell the man that I love, the man that I swore Id grow old with that we wont have that happy ending that he and I have worked so hard for? How do I say goodbye to all of you? How do I let go?"

Quotes About Foreigner

"If he were allowed contact with foreigners he would discover that they are creatures similar to himself and that most of what he has been told about them is lies. The sealed world in which he lives would be broken, and the fear, hatred, and self-righteousness on which his morale depends might evaporate. It is therefore realized on all sides that however ofter Persia, or Egypt, or Java, or Ceylon may change hands, the main frontiers must never be crossed by anything except bombs." - Author: George Orwell

Quotes About Rosario

"Ser Frodo, ser un ciudadano participativo, requerirá hacer una "declaración de fe" como la frase que acuñó Rosario Castellanos. Una filosofía personal basada en la premisa que la acción individual y colectiva sí sirve. Una lista de reglas para ver y andar, vivir y cambiar, exigir y no sólo presenciar. Un conjunto de creencias que son tregua contra el pesimismo, antídoto para la apatía, recordatorio del destino imaginado. Un ideario con el cual combatir el desconsuelo que deja leer los periódicos o ver los noticieros de manera cotidiana." - Author: Denise Dresser

Quotes About Troya

"Sairin bana siirinde okudugu Troyanin dususu hikayesinde kralin kizi Cassandra olacaklari onceden goruyor ve Troyalıların buyuk atı sehre sokmalarını onlemeye calisiyor, ama onu kimse dinlemiyordu: Uzerrindeki lanetti bu, hakikati gorecek, bunu soyleyecek, ama onu kimse duymayacaktı.

Quotes About Dosti

"Starý Bailey věšel prádlo. Třepetalo se a vlálo na střeše Central Pointu. Supermoderní budova se Starému Baileymu nelíbila, ale, jak často říkával svým ptákům, výhled shora byl nedostižný, a navíc, střecha Central Pointu je jedno z mála míst v západní části Londýna, odkud se na Central Point nemusíte koukat." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Philosophies Of Education

"I am not a democrat only because humility and equality are spiritual principles corrupted by the attempt to mechanize and formalize them, with the result that we get not universal smallness and humility, but universal greatness and pride, till some Orc gets hold of a ring of power--and then we get and are getting slavery." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Story Of My Life

"When you see and know that your wellspring is an Eternal Source, and not other people around you, or your past experiences, not even your life story, that is when you are able to truly give to others, without running out and without feeling empty. Because I see God in everything that I touch and feel and think and because I believe that He sees me in everything, too, hence I am able to give to others without thinking of myself as limited source. What I have doesnt come from others, it doesnt come from my life story and it doesnt come from a box. What I have comes from a wellspring, an Eternal Source. The good news is that it never runs out, there is plenty for all and for everyone." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
