Leslie Morgan Steiner Quotes

"My mom is one of my role models in a complicated way. I learned from her how to be a good mom. She was one of those natural moms who really took to it. Her chosen profession was teaching. She loves kids. But she was extremely frustrated and unhappy because for much of my life she was a stay-at-home mom."

Frans G Bengtsson Quotes

"...Orm always afterwards used to say that, after good luck, strength, and skill at arms, nothing was so useful to a man who found himself among foreigners as the ability to learn a language."

Milarepa Quotes

Philip Schultz Quotes

"I could take a walk with my wife and try to explain the ghosts I cant stop speaking to. Or I could read all those books piling upabout the beginning of the end of understanding...Meanwhile, its such a beautiful morning,the changing colors, the hypnotic light.I could sit by the window watching the leaves,which seem to know exactly how to fallfrom one moment to the next. Or I could loseeverything and have to begin over again."

Raymond S Moore Quotes

"Parents should also question much of the contemporary emphasis on special materials and equipment for learning in a childs environment. A clutter of toys can be more confusing than satisfying to a child. On the other hand, natural situations, with opportunieties to explore, seldom overstimulate or trouble a small child. Furthermore, most children will find greater satisfaction and demonsstrate greater learning from things they make and do with their parents or other people than from elaborate toys or learning materials. And there is no substitute for solitude - in the sandpile, mud puddle, or play area - for a yound child to work out his own fantasies. Yet this privilege is often denied in our anxiety to institutionalize children."

Richard Monckton Milnes Quotes

Irwin Thomas Quotes

"I find great beauty in songs with a creative interpretation, but most people generally dont get that, and go for the simple songs, but I prefer something a bit more complicated, which is more meaningful to the creator."

Chuma Nwokolo Quotes

"For now I sit on my final island of the present as my radius of memory shrinks; lost already are the islands of work, of old friendships...Other islands fade as I brood upon them."

Quotes About Education From Presidents

"May there not be some subconscious jealousy that motivates our reactions to other people? Why do we eat chocolate sundaes when we know that we should reduce? Are we free from the influence of parental training? The Scriptures say, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Parental training and all education proceed on the assumption that the will is not free, but can be trained, motivated, and directed. Finally, beyond both physiology and psychology there is God. Can we be sure that he is not directing our choices? Do we know that we are free from his grace? The Psalm says, "Blessed is the man whom you choose and cause to approach you." Is it certain that God has not caused us to choose to approach him? Can we set a limit to Gods power? Can we tell how far it extends and just where it ends? Are we outside his control?" - Author: Gordon H. Clark

Quotes About Emirs

"Izum lokomotive sadrži u klici plan zrakoplova koji neizostavno vodi do svemirske rakete. To je logika sadržana u samim stvarima, ili, da kažemo drukčije, dio je božanskog nauma. Možete cijelo čovječanstvo zamijeniti za neko drugo, ipak će evolucija koja ide od bicikla do rakete ostati nepromjenjena. Čovjek nije autor te evolucije, nego samo izvršitelj. Čak jadni izvršitelj, jer mu nije poznat smisao onoga što izvršava. Taj nam smisao ne pripada, pripada samo Bogu, a mi smo ovdje da ga slušamo kako bi mogao raditi što mi se sviđa." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Intense Feelings

"Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a hot mess or having too many issues are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world." - Author: Anthon St. Maarten

Quotes About Bestia

"Nothing, not even the best and noblest, can go on as it now is. Nothing, not even what is lowest and most bestial, will not be raised again if it submits to death. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. Flesh and blood cannot come to the Mountains [heaven]. Not because they are too rank, but because they are too weak. What is a Lizard compared with a stallion? Lust is a poor, weak, whimpering whispering thing compared with that richness and energy of desire which will arise when lust has been killed." - Author: C.S. Lewis
