Frank Kermode Quotes

"The books which seal off the long perspectives, which sever us from our losses, which represent the world of potency as a world of act, these are the books which, when the drug wears off, go on to the dump with the other empty bottles. Those that continue to interest us move through time to an end, an end we must sense even if we cannot know it; they live in change, until, which is never, as and is are one."

Assata Shakur Quotes

"No movement can survive unless it is constantly growing and changing with the times. If it isnt growing, if its stagnant, and without the support of the people, no movement for liberation can exist, no matter how correct its analysis of the situation is. Thats why political work and organizing are so important. Unless you are addressing the issues people are concerned about and contributing positive direction, theyll never support you. The first thing the enemy tries to do is isolate revolutionaries from the masses of people, making us horrible and hideous monsters so that our people will hate us."

David Millar Quotes

Quotes About Self Flattery

"When they [parents and educators] talk of building self-esteem, they often resort to empty flattery rather than character-building honesty.

Quotes About Doves In The Bible

"Charis herself gave up Christianity a long time ago. For one thing, the Bible is full of meat: animals being sacrificed, lambs, bullocks, doves. Cain was right to offer up the vegetables, God was wrong to refuse them. And theres too much blood: people in the Bible are always having their blood spilled, blood on their hands, their blood licked up by dogs. There are too many slaughters, too much suffering, too many tears.She used to think some of the Eastern religions would be more serene; she was a Buddhist for a while, before she discovered how many hells they had. Most religions are so intent on punishment." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Life Lion King

"The finest SF comes to grips with lifes mysteries, with our resentments against our own natures and our limited societies. It does so by asking basic questions in the artful, liberating way that is unique to this form of writing. Echoes of it are found in other forms of fiction - in the novel of ideas, in the historical novel, in the writings of the great philosophers and scientists; but the best SF does this all more searchingly, by taking what is in most people only a moment of wonder and rebellion against the arbitrariness of existence and making of it an art enriched by knowledge and possibility, expressing our deepest human longing to penetrate into the dark heart of the unknown." - Author: George Zebrowski

Quotes About There Being No God

"I dont accept the currently fashionable assertion that any view is automatically as worthy of respect as any equal and opposite view. My view is that the moon is made of rock. If someone says to me "Well, you havent been there, have you? You havent seen it for yourself, so my view that it is made of Norwegian Beaver Cheese is equally valid" - then I cant even be bothered to argue. There is such a thing as the burden of proof, and in the case of god, as in the case of the composition of the moon, this has shifted radically. God used to be the best explanation wed got, and weve now got vastly better ones. God is no longer an explanation of anything, but has instead become something that would itself need an insurmountable amount of explaining. So I dont think that being convinced that there is no god is as irrational or arrogant a point of view as belief that there is. I dont think the matter calls for even-handedness at all." - Author: Douglas Adams
