"The journey transforms the destination."

Giovanni Papini Quotes

"A ciência é uma sucessão de hipóteses que se contradizem, de teorias que se contrapõem, de concepções caducas e de esperanças mortas. E a Ciência, tal como soterrou a Magia, poderá um dia ser morta e substituída por um modo de conhecimento superior.Vangloria-se de reduzir as fadigas e as infelicidades dos homens e, com a a ajuda proporcionada à indústria, multiplicou as necessidades e, portanto, o trabalho e a escravidão, aumentando com os conhecimentos inúteis e a vida mais insaciável, a nossa carga de dores.Pretende substituir-se ao sacerdote e não consegue responder às exigências mais desesperadas acerca do destino e da morte, pelo que os homens, após uma longa embriaguez de cientismo, regressam, pouco a pouco, às revelações da fé."

Albert Besselaar Quotes

"At some stage in your life you need to stop fighting for others and look at who fights for you. Only then you will truly know who to cherish and who to fight for."

Therese Doucet Quotes

"Leaving your religion and having to invent your own system of values is a big deal, after all."

Frithjof Schuon Quotes

"A civilization is integral and healthy to the extent [that] it is founded on the "invisible" or "underlying" religion, the religio perennis, that is, to the extent [that] its expressions or forms are transparent to the Non-Formal and tend toward the Origin, thus conveying the recollection of a lost Paradise, but also - and with all the more reason - the presentiment of a timeless Beatitude. For the Origin is at once within us and before us; time is but a spiral movement around a motionless Center."

Peter Enseleit Quotes

"...to many of us prayer is more like talking to a chocolate pudding than participating in an amazing relationship with a living being."

John Naisbitt Quotes

"We are shifting from a managerial society to an entrepreneurial society."

Abraham Robinson Quotes

"As far as I know, only a small minority of mathematicians, even of those with Platonist views, accept the idea that there may be mathematical facts which are true but unknowable."

Quotes About Best Mermaids

"She allowed the sweet thrill of hearing Mack Logans voice, even in the background, run through her before she dismissed it as another childhood fantasy. When theyd been best friends as children, shed had an unbounded belief in mermaids and fairies, in fairytales and natures mysteries. Shed believed she could fly with Peter Pan, breathe underwater, walk without touching the ground. And she believed Mack Logan loved her. Reality had a way of ruining a girls dreams." - Author: Patti Callahan Henry

Quotes About The American Revolution And Freedom

"It was because in 1776 our fathers retired the gods from politics. The basic principle of the American Republic is the freedom of man in society.The Declaration of Independence was the product of Intellectual Emancipation, and that is why, from thenceforth, our date of existence should be recorded, not from the mythical birth of Jesus Christ, but from the day of our Independence! This should be the year one hundred and seventy-eight in our calendar!Despite discouraging signs here and there, the seeds of freedom planted by the American Revolution will take root, and throughout the world, if man will learn to zealously guard his freedom, Peace and Progress will come to all the world." - Author: Joseph Lewis

Quotes About Ancient Egyptian Civilization

"The early and relatively sophisticated Egyptians understood that their civilization would be threatened if they bred with the Negroes to their south, so pharaohs went so far as "to prevent the mongrelization of the Egyptian race" by making it a death penalty-eligible offense to bring blacks into Egypt. The ancient Egyptians even constructed a fort on the Nile in central Egypt to prevent blacks from immigrating to their lands. In spite of the efforts by the Egyptian government to defend their civilization, blacks still came to Egypt as soldiers, slaves, and captives from other nations. By 1,500 B.C., half of the population of southern Egypt was of mixed blood, and by 688 B.C., societal progress had ended in Egypt when Taharka became the first mulatto pharaoh. By 332 B.C., Egypt had fallen when Alexander the Great conquered the region." - Author: Kyle Bristow

Quotes About Age Difference

"It is generally recognized that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multitasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics. It is not politically correct to say such things....But it cannot be denied that there are differences between men and women. Of course, these are differences between the averages only. There are wide variations about the mean." - Author: Stephen Hawking

Quotes About How To Be A Leader

"Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose." - Author: Ken Goldstein

Quotes About Mccartney
