Liam OFlaherty Quotes

"...we have seen that the priests regard the state as an enemy to be exploited, it is only natural that our politicians do likewise. Thus, although patriotism is held in greater esteem in this country than in any other country in the world, there is no other country in the world where patriotism is less in evidence among politicians and among the general mass of the community. For patriotism and the state are so closely allied that love of one is necessarily love of the other. And if any man considers the state an enemy and an institution to be exploited, it follows naturally that he is no patriot. Thus the amazed tourist will see that it is very fashionable for Irish politicians who are not in the government to denounce the government and then when they get into the government it is equally fashionable for them to use the powers of government for the purpose of robbing the country."

Quotes About Holocaust Genocide

"The Wests post-Holocaust pledge that genocide would never again be tolerated proved to be hollow, and for all the fine sentiments inspired by the memory of Auschwitz, the problem remains that denouncing evil is a far cry from doing good." - Author: Philip Gourevitch

Quotes About Hearing Your Voice

"If you arent hearing your inner voice, it could mean youre overburdened or not stimulated enough, or that youve learned to shut it off because the people around you have refused to engage it. Perhaps youve had a hardening of the arteries around your soul. I believe the choices we make in our lives and the people and places surrounding us increase the volume of our inner voice, decrease it, or annihilate it entirely." - Author: Kelly Cutrone

Quotes About Promoting Business

"The crash did not cause the Depression: that was part of a far broader malaise. What it did was expose the weaknesses that underpinned the confidence and optimism of the 1920s - poor distribution of income, a weak banking structure and insufficient regulations, the economys dependence on new consumer goods, the over-extension of industry and the Governments blind belief that promoting business interests would make America uniformly prosperous." - Author: Lucy Moore

Quotes About Change Life And Love

"Its all a lie. I said to myself. Romance. This notion that some guy is going to swoop and fall madly in love with me and change my life and make everything perfect. Its one big, horrible lie and I bought it. Hook, line, and a ten thousand-pound sinker. Or I guess I should say its a lie for a girl like me. For Skye, thats another story. The first time Dakota kissed me, down at the hot tub, I remember thinking, this is too good to be true. But if something feels too good to be true, maybe its not true. Maybe the truth is that Skye deserves him. Shell always be the winner. And I, pathetically, will always be me." - Author: Carolyn Mackler

Quotes About Letting Go Being Free

Today is YOURS to shape - own it - break free from people and things that poison or dilute your spirit." - Author: Steve Maraboli

Quotes About Being Realistic In Life

"Just as we all like love tales because there is an instinct of sex, we all like astonishing tales because they touch the nerve of the ancient instinct of astonishment. This is proved by the fact that when we are very young children we do not need fairy tales: we only need tales. Mere life is interesting enough. A child of seven is excited by being told that Tommy opened a door and saw a dragon. But a child of three is excited by being told that Tommy opened a door. Boys like romantic tales; but babies like realistic tales -- because they find them romantic. In fact, a baby is about the only person, I should think, to whom a modern realistic novel could be read without boring him." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Marcia

"I love that name. A country named Chad. Sounds like somebody who lived next door to the Brady Bunch. But if Chad actually lived next door to the Bradys, Greg would be roasting over a slow fire and Marcia would be standing naked on an auction block, because Chad is one of the hungriest, craziest, most desperate places on the planet." - Author: Gary Brecher

Quotes About Childhoods

"A Ritual to Read to Each OtherIf you dont know the kind of person I amand I dont know the kind of person you area pattern that others made may prevail in the worldand following the wrong god home we may miss our star.For there is many a small betrayal in the mind,a shrug that lets the fragile sequence breaksending with shouts the horrible errors of childhoodstorming out to play through the broken dyke.And as elephants parade holding each elephants tail,but if one wanders the circus wont find the park,I call it cruel and maybe the root of all crueltyto know what occurs but not recognize the fact.And so I appeal to a voice, to something shadowy,a remote important region in all who talk:though we could fool each other, we should consider---lest the parade of our mutual life get lost in the dark.For it is important that awake people be awake,or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep;the signals we give---yes or no, or maybe---should be clear: the darkness around us is deep." - Author: William Edgar Stafford
