Ally Condie Quotes

Russ Shafer Landau Quotes

"One salutary development in recent ethical theorizing is the widespread recognition that no short argument will serve to eliminate any of the major metaethical positions. Such theories have to weave together views in semantics, epistemology, moral psychology and metaphysics. The comprehensive, holistic character of much recent theorizing suggests the futility of fastening on just a single sort of argument to refute a developed version of realism or antirealism. No one any longer thinks that ethical naturalism can be undermined in a single stroke by the open question argument, or that appeal to the descriptive semantics of moral discourse is sufficient to refute noncognitivism."

Diane Loomans Quotes

"If I had my child to raise all over again,Id finger paint more, and point the finger less.Id do less correcting, and more connecting.Id take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.I would care to know less, and know to care more.Id take more hikes and fly more kites.Id stop playing serious, and seriously play.Id run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.Id do more hugging, and less tugging.I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.Id build self esteem first, and the house later.Id teach less about the love of power, and more about the power of love."

Kim Dominic Solo Paz Quotes

"In life, not everything we thought is right and not every right thing is what we must do because sometimes you can find even better solution or even better decision. Because everything can be changed or will change without us knowing. Like earlier, I thought that it will rain because there are no stars but now the sky is full of stars. Like in Life, everything might change and maybe not now but eventually it will. Just give it your best shot because there will always be a new day."

"The tears grappled with her face. Rudy, please, wake up, Goddamn it, wale up, I love you. Come on, Rudy, come on, Jesse Owens, dont you know I love you, wake up, wake up, wake up.."But nothing cared...She leaned down and looked at his lifeless face and Liesel kissed her best friend, Rudy Steiner, soft and true on his lips. He tasted dusty and sweet. He tasted like regret in the shadows of trees and in the glow of the anarchists suit collection. She kissed him long and soft, and when she pulled hersel away, she touched his mouth with her fingers. Her hands were tremblin, her lips were fleshy, and she leaned in once more, this time losing control and misjudging it. Their teeth collided on the demolised world of Himmel Street." - Author: Markus Zusak

Nothing to be proud of, mister." - Author: Christopher Ryan
