Quotes About Christian Fanatics

"Many [Tudor-era religious radicals] believed then, exactly as Christian fundamentalists do today, that they lived in the last days before Armageddon and, again just as now, saw signs all around in the world that they took as certain proof that the Apocalypse was imminent. Again like fundamentalists today, they looked on the prospect of the violent destruction of mankind without turning a hair. The remarkable similarity between the first Tudor Puritans and the fanatics among todays Christian fundamentalists extends to their selective reading of the Bible, their emphasis on the Book of Revelation, their certainty of their rightness, even to their phraseology. Where the Book of Revelation is concerned, I share the view of Guy, that the early church fathers released something very dangerous on the world when, after much deliberation, they decided to include it in the Christian canon."[From the authors concluding Historical Note]" - Author: C.J.

Quotes About Advice To Youth

"Good parents use the mistakes they did in the past when they were young to advice the children God gave to them to prevent them from repeating those mistakes again. However, bad parents always want to be seen as right and appear "angelic and saintly" as if they never had horrible youth days." - Author: Israelmore Ayivor

Quotes About Referential

"Transcendental artists are messengers. Their symbolic vocabulary originates from the infinite wisdom of higher spheres, in a non-referential time/space continuum... the way of the shaman. The presence of glyphs speaks a universal language of the soulthat transcends words. If one considers the notion of parallel realities and the plurality of dimensional realms, the premise of art as "consciousness-provoking vessel" can be viewed as an organic and natural occurrence." - Author: ELLE NICOLAI

Quotes About Armstrong

"It wasnt about wanting to die or having nothing left to live for; it was about letting go. You live your life doing what youre supposed to do, following the rules, following your conscience no matter what your gut tells you - and most times, thats okay. Control is good. It allows you to believe in certainty and absolutes, like lining up the perfect shot. But when you hold on for so long, and hold on so tight, every once in a while you have to close your eyes and jump."Kelley Armstrong - Exit Strategy" - Author: Kelley Armstrong

Quotes About Strikes

"Test-oriented teaching strikes me as anti-educational, a kind of unpleasant game that subverts the real aim of education: to waken a student to her or his potential, and to pursue a subject of considerable importance without restrictions imposed by anything except the inherent demands of the material." - Author: Jay Parini

Quotes About Throwback Time

"This is a throwback to the Aristotelian conception of nature, banished from the scene at the birth of modern science. But I have been persuaded that the idea of teleological laws is coherent, and quite different from the idea of explanation of the intentions of a purposive being who produces the means to his ends by choice. In spite of the exclusion of teleology from contemporary science, it certainly shouldnt be ruled out a priori. Formally, the possibility of principles of change over time tending toward certain types of outcome is coherent, in a world in which the nonteleological laws are not fully deterministic." - Author: Thomas Nagel

Quotes About Sheridan

"Why do you ask?""Because I can.""You can what?""I can go in the private collection!" I scurried toward him. "My father had a lifetime subscriptioin, Mr. Sheridan, and not just that, but he had special privileges. Im certain I could use his name to get you into the private collection."Daniels jaw fell. "Why didnt you say so before?""What?" I recoiled. "How was I supposed to know you needed it?""We couldve gone ages ago!"My enthusiasm transformed into outrage. "In that case, why didnt you say you needed it?""Because I didnt know you had a subscription!""Aha!" I cried, thrusting a finger at him. "Your arguments a circle!"Daniel sprang up. "We wasted all this time-""Silence!" Joseph roared. "You are like squawking parrots, and I have had quite enough. Miss Fitt, I would ask that you take Mr. Sheridan to the library immediately. Daniel, I would ask that you keep that big mouth of yours silent." - Author: Susan Dennard
