Robert J Wiersema Quotes

"Nostalgia is, by its very nature, bittersweet, the happiest memories laced with melancholy. Its that combination, that opposition of forces, that makes it so compelling. People, places, events, times: we miss them, and theres a pleasure in the missing and a sadness in the love.The feeling is most acute, sometimes cripplingly so, when we find ourselves longing for the moment were in, the people were actually with.That nameless feeling, that sense of excruciating beauty, of pained happiness, is at the core of "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)."

Quotes About Crisis Situations

"The crisis creates situations which are dangerous in the short run, since the various strata of the population are not all capable of orienting themselves equally swiftly, or of reorganizing with the same rhythm. The traditional ruling class, which has numerous trained cadres, changes men and programmes and, with greater speed than is achieved by the subordinate classes, reabsorbs the control that was slipping from its grasp. Perhaps it may make sacrifices, and expose itself to an uncertain future by demagogic promises; but it retains power, reinforces it for the time being, and uses it to crush its adversary and disperse his leading cadres, who cannot be be very numerous or highly trained." - Author: Antonio Gramsci

Quotes About The Element Air

"As he fills me, I wonder if—in the same way that sex makes its own unique perfume—we dont really "make" love. As in create, manufacture, evoke an independent element in the air around us, and if enough of us did it really well, for real, not just for the hell of it, we could change the world. Because when hes in me, I feel the space around us changing, charging, and it seems to set off some kind of feedback loop, where the more he touches me, the more I need him to." - Author: Karen Marie Moning

Quotes About Kairos

"I want my heart to be the thin place. I dont want to board a plane to feel the kiss of heaven. I want to carry it with me wherever I go. I want my fragile, hurting heart, to recognize fleeting kairos, eternal moments as they pass. I want to be my own mountain and my own retreat." - Author: Anna White

Quotes About Christian Service

"We may not say that we have the answers. Questions of how to conduct oneself as a Christian, or how to serve as a Christian, must be answered by life itself- the life of the individual in his direct responsible relationship to God. This is a dynamic, never a static thing. And how can we speak at all of the true meaning of conduct and service if we do not speak first and last of love? For it is love which sums up all other commands. The one who loves knows better than anyone else how to conduct himself, how to serve the one he loves. Love prescribes an answer in a given situation as no mere rule can do." - Author: Elisabeth Elliot

Quotes About Rice Fields

"They dont believe in anything either. You and your like are trying to make a war with the help of people who just arent interested.""They dont want communism.""They want enough rice," I said. "They dont want to be shot at. They want one day to be much the same as another. They dont want our white skins around telling them what they want.""If Indochina goes--""I know that record. Siam goes. Malaya goes. Indonesia goes. What does go mean? If I believed in your God and another life, Id bet my future harp against your golden crown that in five hundred years there may be no New York or London, but theyll be growing paddy in these fields, theyll be carrying their produce to market on long poles, wearing their pointed hats. The small boys will be sitting on the buffaloes. I like the buffaloes, they dont like our smell, the smell of Europeans." - Author: Graham Greene

Quotes About Gandalf The Ring

"But this is terrible!" cried Frodo. "Far worse than the worst that I imagined from your hints and warnings. O Gandalf, best of friends, what am I to do? For now I am really afraid. What am I to do? What a pity that Bilbo did not stab that vile creature, when he had a chance!""Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need. And he has been well rewarded, Frodo. Be sure that he took so little hurt from the evil, and escaped in the end, because he began his ownership of the Ring so. With Pity.""I am sorry," said Frodo. "But I am frightened; and I do not feel any pity for Gollum." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
