[Man Does Not Live By Bread Alone. I Have Known Millionaires Starving For Lack Of The Nutriment Which Alone Can Sustain All That Is Human In Man, And I Know Workmen, And Many So-called Poor Men, Who Revel In Luxuries Beyond The Power Of Those Millionaires To Reach. It Is The Mind That Makes The Body Rich. There Is No Class So Pitiably Wretched As That Which Possesses Money And Nothing Else. Money Can Only Be The Useful Drudge Of Things Immeasurably Higher Than Itself. Exalted Beyond This, As It Sometimes Is, It Remains Caliban Still And Still Plays The Beast. My Aspirations Take A Higher Flight. Mine Be It To Have Contributed To The Enlightenment And The Joys Of The Mind, To The Things Of The Spirit, To All That Tends To Bring Into The Lives Of The Toilers Of Pittsburgh Sweetness And Light. I Hold This The Noblest Possible Use Of Wealth]

John Rogers Quotes

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year olds life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."[Kung Fu Monkey -- Ephemera, blog post, March 19, 2009]"

Crystal Bowersox Quotes

"I had what you could call a chaotic childhood. My parents divorced when I was 2; I went back and forth between my moms and dads houses for years."

Donald Harington Quotes

"Jacob realized that if she kept on going like that he might very well cry out himself. But just then a voice outside the wagon called "JAKE! AIR YE IN THAR?" and he knew it was Sarah. "ANSWER ME!" she requested, so he did. "Yeah, Im in here, but Ill be right out." He was bucking beneath the weight of Virdie in an effort to finish. "WHATRE YE DOIN IN THAR, JAKE?" Sarah wanted to know. "Im havin words-" he panted "-with this here Rebel foe." He was nearly there, although he realized that the wagon must be visibly shaking. Virdie suddenly stuffed her dress into her mouth, but it was not enough to keep another one of her long groans from coming out. "JAKE!" Sarah hollered. "YOU AINT A-HURTING HER, AIR YE?" "Jist a little," he answered, "to teach her a lesson." And then he got there, rapturously, reflecting, Godalmighty, if I could git this reglar, maybe Id jine the Rebels after all."

"There is a gulf between the high value Americans put on life in theory and its cheapness in practice."

Xinran Quotes

"(While interviewing The University Student:)Oh, poor Xinran. You havent even got the various categories of women straight. How can you possibly hope to understand men? Let me tell you. When men have been drinking, they come out with a set of definitions for women. Lovers are "swordfish", tasty but with sharp bones. "Personal secretaries" are "carp", the longer you "stew" them, the more flavour they have. Other mens wives are "Japanese puffer fish", trying a mouthful could be the end of you, but risking death is a source of pride.And what about their own wives?Salt cod, because it keeps for a long time. When there is no other food, salt cod is cheap and convenient."

"Sorry! But Im not a game played when ever you want to play it!"

Leslie Vernick Quotes

"Dont get me wrong. A good marriage, adequate financial resources, even a clean home and well-behaved children do bring some measure of happiness. However, temporal blessings, as wonderful as they may be, are only a taste of the real thing. They cannot sustain inner happiness any more than eating a scrumptious meal keeps tomorrows hunger at bay."

Ramakrishna Quotes

"As long as I live, so long do I learn."

CS Friedman Quotes

"The Tyr had tried. It had really tried. It must have gone over every element of human psychology, tried desperately to understand the nature of human aesthetic sense … and then failed, miserably, in every regard."

Quotes About Midway

"A carnival in daylight is an unfinished beast, anyway. Rain makes it a ghost.

Quotes About Body Waxing

"In the case of acupuncture, the time period must also be considered. On a fine day, the sun shining, blood in the human body flows smoothly, saliva is free, breathing is easy. On days of chill and cloud, blood flows thick and slow, breathing is heavy, saliva is viscous. When the moon is waxing, blood and breath are full. When the moon wanes, blood and breath wane. Therefore acupuncture should be used only on fair warm days, when the moon is waxing or, best of all, when the moon is full.Interesting, Grace said in a comment, in bioclimatic research in the West, coronary attacks increase in frequency on cold chilly days when the sun is under clouds.Dr Tseng turned the page of his blue cloth-covered book.

Pursing her lips, she blushed a dark, deep red. I knew I had said something wrong, but it took me a few days to understand the reason for Miss Mansons disapproval and discomfort. She blushed a beetroot red because I had unwittingly questioned the core belief of the school: British was Better." - Author: Nayana Currimbhoy

Quotes About Wrist Watches

"Those who think money cant buy happiness just dont know where to shop … People would be happier and healthier if they took more time off and spent it with their family and friends, yet America has long been heading in the opposite direction. People would be happier if they reduced their commuting time, even if it meant living in smaller houses, yet American trends are toward even larger houses and ever longer commutes. People would be happier and healthier if they took longer vacations even if that meant earning less, yet vacation times are shrinking in the United States, and in Europe as well. People would be happier, and in the long run and wealthier, if they bought basic functional appliances, automobiles, and wristwatches, and invested the money they saved for future consumption; yet, Americans and in particular spend almost everything they have – and sometimes more – on goods for present consumption, often paying a large premium for designer names and superfluous features." - Author: Jonathan Haidt
