Quotes About Food And Beverages

"I can think of no sadder example of our food paradigm than two posters taped to the window of a California IHOP. One is a colorful photo of pancakes heaped with bananas, strawberries, nuts, syrups and whipped cream with the caption, Welcome to Paradise. Lower down, an 8x10 photocopy states: Chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm may be present in food or beverages sold here. Such signs are posted on many fast-food outlets. Heaven isnt a place on earth, at least not at these drive-throughs." - Author: Adam Leith Gollner

Quotes About Condon

"It was quiet another moment. The priest said, "I think it would be good to pray." "For his soul," Ray consented. Father Morris sat up straighter, frown forming on his normally placid face. "And for his life too. I do not condone revenge. I do not condone bloodshed. I do not condone murder." He let out a deep breath. "But I understand what your brother was trying to do." And how was that even possible? How did a man of the cloth understand what had happened in Aaron Quinns blood-spattered office? "How?" was all Ray could ask. Father Morris stood. "Weve had this conversation before, Ray, but youve forgotten. Read the Old Testament," he said as he turned for the door. "And I will pray for your brother." - Author: Lauren Gilley

Quotes About Blind Loyalty

"Among [Applewhites] other teachings was the classic cult specialty of developing disdain for anyone outside of the Heavens Gate commune. Applewhite flattered his would-be alien flock that they were an elite elect far superior to the non-initiated humans whom he considered to be deluded zombies.[...]Applewhite effectively fed his paranoid persecution complex to his followers to ensure blind loyalty to the group and himself while fostering alienation from the mundane world. This paradoxical superior/fearful attitude towards "Them" (i.e., anyone who is not one of "Us") is one of the simplest means of hooking even the most skeptical curiosity seeker into the solipsistic netherworld of a [mentally unbalanced] leaders insecure and threatened worldview." - Author: Zeena Schreck

Quotes About Solitary Trees

"This solitary hill has always been dear to meAnd this hedge, which prevents me from seeing most ofThe endless horizon.But when I sit and gaze, I imagine, in my thoughtsEndless spaces beyond the hedge,An all encompassing silence and a deeply profound quiet,To the point that my heart is almost overwhelmed.And when I hear the wind rustling through the treesI compare its voice to the infinite silence.And eternity occurs to me, and all the ages past,And the present time, and its sound.Amidst this immensity my thought drowns:And to founder in this sea is sweet to me." - Author: Giacomo Leopardi
