So We've Gone From Pushing Cement To Now In One Generation Pushing Legislation. But We Always Want Any President To Succeed, To Do Well; That Means America Does Well And Americans Do Well.]

Quotes About Compartments

"Ultimately, I see the Goddess as incorporating the full spectrum of existence, not just what we call ‘the feminine. The latter is actually a construct of a culture that divides existence into compartments, and in particular into the dualities with which we are so familiar: light/dark, female/male, mind/body, earth/spirit and so on.The true nature of existence, including true human nature, I believe, is not so split. Acting and living from the integration of all these components is what I call spirituality. Thus, the Goddess represents a unity and wholeness which is the birthright and potential of every human being. All of us, all of existence, are the Divine. In order to complete this whole by bringing back that which has been denied, I name the Divine the Goddess." - Author: Testy McTesterson

It is the crazy that teaches us to use our gifts wisely and own all the attackers." - Author: Criss Jami

Quotes About Hector Of Troy

"He was close enough so that I could see his face clearly, even with his helmets cheek flaps tied tightly under his bearded chin. I looked into the eyes of Hector, prince of Troy. Brown eyes they were, the colour of rich farm soil, calm and deep. No anger, no battle lust. He was a cool and calculating warrior, a thinker among these hordes of wild, screaming brutes. He wore a small round shield buckled to his left arm instead of the massive body-length type most of the other nobles carried. In it was painted a flying heron, a strangely peaceful emblem in the midst of all this mayhem and gore." - Author: Ben Bova
