Nadia Bolz Weber Quotes

"This desire to learn what the faith is from those who have lived it in the face of being told they are not welcome or worthy is far more than "inclusion." Actually, inclusion isnt the right word at all, because it sounds like in our niceness and virtue we are allowing "them" to join "us"—like we are judging another group of people to be worthy of inclusion in a tent that we dont own."

Sita Brahmachari Quotes

"Mira Levenson. Aged twelve. Looks, long dark shiny hair, dark brown eyes (almost black), brown skin. Beautiful. Favorite colour, copper orange, I think. Personality, clever, bright, serious, shy, funny without realizing it, holds back her thoughts, mystery girl, arty. What Ive noticed: shes stronger than she thinks she is; she doesnt speak much ay school. What I know: shes got a loud laugh (when she lets it out). Her best friend is Millie Lockhart. She doesnt need Millie as much as she thinks she does. Her grandmother is dying and she loves her. She started talking in Pat Prints class. I know she doesnt know how much I think of her, how much I miss her if shes not around. What I think she thinks about me is that Im a bit of a joker, but Im deadly serious.Deer...apple...green...sea...See you on Friday!LoveJidé"

Quotes About Benefits Of Dance

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." - Author: Alexander Fraser Tytler

Quotes About Group Membership

"It is true that some secluded intellectuals in their esoteric circles talk differently. They proclaim the priority of what they call eternal absolute values and feign in their declamations—not in their personal conduct—a disdain of things secular and transitory. But the public ignores such utterances. The main goal of present-day political action is to secure for the respective pressure group memberships the highest material well-being. The only way for a leader to succeed is to instill in people the conviction that his program best serves the attainment of this goal." - Author: Ludwig von Mises

Quotes About Motherhood And Sacrifice

"After Mary confessed that dream to him, Jack got to wondering how women felt about motherhood once their children are grown and didnt need them anymore. How do they close the storybooks, box up the toys, and pack up the memories of the deeply lived-in childhoods of their babies? Childhoods that fly by quickly and selfishly, without regard to a mothers unconditional love and sacrifice. How does a mother go on being a mother when one day she wakes up and finds that her arms are empty and her grown children are walking away from her without so much as a glance back?" - Author: Lilli Jolgren Day

Quotes About Life Illusions

"He was dead; I needed to let his memory go, too. That was the first step for me, before discrimination.Yet my love was the ghost of a young girls dream. It walked alone in the abyss, stubbornly, where only illusions prospered on tears and regrets. My love had a life of its own; it was perverted but nevertheless still vital. For that reason, I wanted to return to deep space. Honestly, I would have preferred it if we had traveled forever and never stopped at another star system. To fall into endless blackness, that was my new fantasy.The young girl with the ancient dream wept. I could hear her; I even saw her tears on the glass of the observation deck. It made me feel old. I didnt want to know her name. I couldnt forget Tem but I needed to forget her." - Author: Christopher Pike

Quotes About Discredited

"What is the scholar, what is the man for, but for hospitality to every new thought of his time? Have you leisure, power, property, friends? you shall be the asylum and patron of every new thought, every unproven opinion, every untried project, which proceeds out of good will and honest seeking. All the newspapers, all the tongues of to-day will of course at first defame what is noble; but you who hold not of to-day, not of the times, but of the Everlasting, are to stand for it: and the highest compliment, man ever receives from heaven, is the sending to him its disguised and discredited angels." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
