[Napoleon, The Greatest Of The Conquerors, Is A Sufficient Proof That Great Men Of Action Are Criminals, And Therefore, Not Geniuses. One Can Understand Him By Thinking Of The Tremendous Intensity With Which He Tried To Escape From Himself. There Is This Element In All The Conquerors, Great Or Small. Just Because He Had Great Gifts, Greater Than Those Of Any Emperor Before Him, He Had Greater Difficulty In Stifling The Disapproving Voice Within Him. The Motive Of His Ambition Was The Craving To Stifle His Better Self.]

Quotes About Change Ecards

"Jesus used paradoxes to help us see the kingdom of God. His paradoxical statements turned the secular world upside down. As we have already noted, He said that whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave. He said that the last shall be first, and the first shall be last. He said: I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. He said that Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it." - Author: Kent M. Keith

Quotes About Only Child

"My wifes name was Mala. The marriage had been arranged by my older brother and his wife. I regarded the proposition with neither objection nor enthusiasm. It was a duty expected of me, as it was expected of every man. She was the daughter of a schoolteacher in Beleghata. I was told that she could cook, knit, embroider, sketch landscapes, and recite poems by Tagore, but these talents could not make up for the fact that she did not possess a fair complexion, and so a string of men had rejected her to her face. She was twenty-seven, an age when her parents had begun to fear that she would never marry, and so they were willing to ship their only child halfway across the world in order to save her from spinsterhood." - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri

Quotes About Visionary Thinking

"Visionary feminism is a wise and loving politics. It is rooted in the love of male and female being, refusing to privilege one over the other. The soul of feminist politics is the commitment to ending patriarchal domination of women and men, girls and boys. Love cannot exist in any relationship that is based on domination and coercion. Males cannot love themselves in patriarchal culture if their very self-definition relies on submission to patriarchal rules. When men embrace feminist thinking and preactice, which emphasizes the value of mutual growth and self-actualization in all relationships, their emotional well-being will be enhanced. A genuine feminist politics always brings us from bondage to freedom, from lovelessness to loving." - Author: Bell Hooks
