Quotes About Giant

"We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society.

Quotes About Ingrede

"Es waren ausschließlich Männer, diese zwanghaften Buchkäufer und Sammler, die erfüllt waren von der neurotischen Überzeugung, wenn sie es nur einen Tag versäumten, hierherzukommen, könne damit auch ein Buch verloren sein oder zumindest in den Händen eines anderen Käufers landen. Was für ein Leben führten sie? Das Arcade war für sie das erste Ziel des Tages , wo sie rasch vorbeischauten, um einen Blick auf die Neuzugänge zu werfen, die am Fuße von Pikes Plattform aufgestapelt lagen; eine obligatorische, tägliche Suche nach verborgenen Schätzen. Raffgier trieb sie an und Missgunst - die beiden Ingredenzien einer jeden Passion, wie ich vermutete." - Author: Sheridan Hay

Quotes About Flaws In Society

"The classical heritage as shaped by and filtered through Roman culture had two great flaws. First, it prevented the very rich oral cultures of the ancient Mediterranean from surviving from antiquity into later times. All that was left as creative forces were Greek philosophy and Roman law. These were very substantial cultures but they represented a great narrowing of what could be passed on from antiquity to later centuries..."Second, another deficiency of classical culture was its lack of social conscience, its obliviousness to the slavery, poverty, disease, and everyday cruelty endured by more than half of the fifty million people who inhabited the empire. The classical heritage represented a narrow and insensitive social and political theory reinforcing a miserably class-ridden and technologically stagnant society." - Author: Norman F. Cantor

Quotes About Interpreting Scripture

"[T]he scripture worshippers put the writings ahead of God. Instead of interpreting Gods actions in nature, for example, they interpret nature in the light of the Scripture. Nature says the rock is billions of years old, but the book says different, so even though men wrote the book, and God made the rock and God gave us minds that have found ways to tell how old it is, we still choose to believe the Scripture." - Author: Sheri S. Tepper

Quotes About Olas

"Nicholas wanted to scream until his throat bled. Or tear apart a wall of concrete with his bare hands. Anything – anything – to get the woman off his mind. The temptation she offered. The peace, the hope. They were killing him, taking away the need for revenge and replacing it with the need for her. As though she alone could collect the torn pieces of his life, stitch them back together, and help make him whole again.He couldnt take it, feeling again. Needing again after so many years spent in disconnect. It was too much, and if he hadnt run from her like a total coward, he would have succumbed – lost himself inside the woman and given up to oblivion without a single ounce of remorse." - Author: Angela B. Wade

He shall moldThy spirit and by giving , make it ask." - Author: Samuel Taylor Coleridge
