Aussiescribbler Quotes

"The door to heaven is open to us at any time we are willing to accept that we are of absolutely no importance. The bars of our own hell - the "mind-forged manacles" as Blake put it - are our attempts to justify ourselves or prove our self-worth. Accept that none of this matters and we can see that heaven is all around us. It is there in a childs smile, in the rain that waters the earth, even in the maggots that rise in new life from dead meat. All around us is evidence that life and love are eternal and unbroken by strife and suffering."

Thomas McDonell Quotes

"I wasnt into acting when I was a kid. Maybe because I was shy or it didnt occur to me."

Quotes About Health Education

"Poor health was not just the result of random acts, bad luck, bad behavior or unfortunate genetics. Deliberate public policy decision about housing, education, parks and streets were the key drivers of racial differences in mortality. Crime kept people off the streets and limited their ability to exercise. The lack of grocery stores limited dietary choices. The lack of primary care doctors and specialists in these communities made chronic disease care more difficult. The degradation and loss of hospital services in these communities affected hospital-based outcomes. … The chronic underfunding of critical health services at Cook County Hospital and other safety-net providers contributed to these poor outcomes as well. The deleterious impact of social structures such as urban poverty and racism on health has been called structural violence." - Author: David A. Ansell

Quotes About Dangerous Secrets

"Forests to the [early] Northern European peoples were dangerous and generous, domestic and wild, beautiful and terrible. And the forests were the terrain out of which fairy stories, one of our earliest and most vital cultural forms, evolved. The mysterious secrets and silences, gifts and perils of the forest are both the background to and source of these tales....Forests are places where a person can get lost and also hide -- and losing and hiding, of things and people, are central to European fairy stories in ways that are not true of similar stories in different geographies. Landscape informs the collective imagination as much as or more than it forms the individual psyche and its imagination, but this dimension is not something to which we always pay enough attention." - Author: Sara Maitland

Quotes About Retro

"Si la simple expression de la douleur et de la joie soulage le coeur, les épanchements de la poésie lyrique [ont] une mission plus haute ; celle, non de délivrer lesprit du sentiment, mais de laffranchir dans le sentiment.En effet, la domination aveugle de la passion consiste en ce que lâme sidentifie tout entière avec elle, au point de ne plus pouvoir sen détacher, de ne pouvoir se contempler et sexprimer elle-même. Or la poésie délivre, à la vérité, lâme de cette oppression en lui mettant sous les yeux sa propre image. Elle fait de chaque sentiment accidentel un objet purifié, dans lequel lâme affranchie retourne libre à elle-même dans sa conscience délivrée et sy retrouve chez elle." - Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
