G Edward Griffin Quotes

"PROPER ROLE OF THE STATE
     I believe that the proper role of the state is negative, not positive; defensive, not aggressive. It is to protect, not to provide; for if the state is granted the power to provide for some, it must also be able to take from others, and that always leads to legalized plunder and loss of freedom. If the state can give us everything we want, it also must be powerful enough to take from us everything we have. Therefore, the proper function of the state is to protect the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, nothing more. That state is best which governs least."

Muhammad Ali Quotes

Autumn Rosen Quotes

"Stop being the shy boy that wants to do everything right and responsibly. Im sick of your honorable intentions Eli. In fifty years, when Im old in my bed I want to wake up when the sun shines in my window and know that the person lying beside me was the right choice. I dont want to look at someone else and always wish it was you." ~ Maggie Parsons from Epitaphs from the Afterlife"

Quotes About Overwhelming Joy

"The adoring crowds and overwhelming Democratic support in the 2008 election was based largely on joy at jettisoning Bush and the appeal of electing a superbly qualified charismatic African American leader." - Author: Mary Frances Berry

Quotes About Being 17 Years Old Tumblr

"Something had broken inside her. No past or future, no sense of time, each day as endless as it was to a child. Linh had been right about her being a tourist of the war in the beginning, but with that detachment there had also been a kind of strength. As Darrow had said, there was a price to mastery. Now she was in limbo, neither an observer of the country, nor a part of it. For the first time since she was a child, she considered praying, but it seemed small and cowardly this late in the game." - Author: Tatjana Soli

Quotes About Clairvoyance

"Clairvoyance is the faculty which is awakened when this quality is developed and disciplined, not the clairvoyance of the mediumistic seance rooms, but the true clairvoyance or clear seeing of the mystic. That is, this aspect of the mind has the capacity to interpret that which is seen. Discernment or the capacity to diagnose is the quality of James the son of Alphaeus." - Author: Neville Goddard

Quotes About Sun And Love

"Sometimes shed go a whole day without thinking of him or missing him. Why not? She had quite a full life, and really, hed often been hard to deal with and hard to live with. A project, the Yankee oldtimers like her very own Dad might have said. And then sometimes a day would come, a gray one (or a sunny one) when she missed him so fiercely she felt empty, not a woman at all anymore but just a dead tree filled with cold November blow. She felt like that now, felt like hollering his name and hollering him home, and her heart turned sick with the thought of the years ahead and she wondered what good love was if it came to this, to even ten seconds of feeling like this." - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Moody Friends

"When one reads, and re-reads, Moby Dick, it seems to me that one gets a more convincing, a more definite, impression of the man than from anything one may learn of his life and circumstances; an impression of a man endowed by nature with a great gift blighted by an evil genius, so that, like the agave, no sooner had it put forth its splendid blooming than it withered; a moody, unhappy man tormented by instincts he shrank from with horror; a man conscious that the virtue had gone out of him, and embittered by failure and poverty; a man of heart craving for friendship, only to find that friendship too was vanity. Such, as I see him, was Herman Melville, a man whom one can only regard with deep compassion." - Author: W. Somerset Maugham

Quotes About Friends Just Using You

"What are you two betting on?""Good grief. What, does she have eagle ears or something?""No, you dork. Your whisper is just you talking in normal volume but making your voice raspy. Really, you sound more like a chick whos been smoking for thirty years."Jen shrugged. "Im just throwing that out there. You can take it and apply it at your leisure."Fane was chuckling at Jens words when Jacque elbowed him, causing him to cough."You dont get to laugh, wolf-man."Jacque turned back to Jen. "Thank you for that observation, Sherlock.""Always glad to help a friend in need, Watson." Jen grinned at Jacques irritated look." - Author: Quinn Loftis

Quotes About Converse

"I dont like to try very hard. Most of the time its just jeans, a T-shirt and Converse trainers. Casual, comfortable and boyish is how Id describe my look. The way people wear clothes makes them stylish, rather than the clothes themselves." - Author: Jessica Hart

Quotes About Applying Yourself

"The cynic school was a thing of antiquity, but every subsequent age has had its lonely adherents: to satirize the very thing you depend on, to offer a way out but crudely and unsatisfactorily, too myopic with frustration and intoxicated by rebellion to admit there is no way out. Addicted to futility, you live in your barrels and keep up your search for the ‘good man, laughing all the while. A noncontagious laughter that loops back upon itself; your only pleasure an insincerity. And yet you, like the stoics, propose to live according to nature? Not so, ‘friends! Your mockery cant escape the interpersonal – and so you do live according to what is natural, just not in the way you thought. Deeply aware of status, you turn your scorn into a virtue, applying it more even than the dozing patrician, smearing it over yourself like cow-dung. If everyone lived in barrels you would smash yours and take to a house, decrying ‘the rolling estate." - Author: Bauvard

Quotes About Fait

"For the truth is ... that human beings have neither kindness, nor faith, nor charity beyond what serves to increase the pleasure of the moment. They hunt in packs. Their packs scour the desert and vanish screaming into the wilderness. They desert the fallen." - Author: Virginia Woolf
