Manly P Hall Quotes

"We can only escape from the world by outgrowing the world. Death may take man out of the world but only wisdom can take the world out of the man. As long as the human being is obsessed by worldliness, he will suffer from the Karmic consequences of false allegiances. When however, worldliness is transmuted into Spiritual Integrity he is free, even though he still dwells physically among worldly things."

Iain De Caestecker Quotes

"My mom was always keen I stayed in school and got good grades, and she was always keen for me to do medicine. I used to go to drama classes when I was younger, and she would always take me. But when I got to an age when I decided it was what I wanted to do, when she accepted it, she had actually been the most supportive person ever."

Charlotte Munro Quotes

"By the sound of things, you know nothing about mathematics.You can put it like that. Im utterly useless.Useless is such a harsh word, you are merely... inexperienced.

Rukhsana Khan Quotes

"I have a pesky little critic in the back of my mind. Hes a permanent fixture and passes judgment on everything I write.In order to placate him, especially when Im endeavoring to write anything as ambitious as a novel, I have to constantly mutter, Im not writing a masterpiece, Im not writing a masterpiece.This mantra lulls him into a kind of stupor so that he pays no attention to what Im doing, because after all, Im not claiming its any good. Slowly, and secretly, one page at a time, I write my story.I know Ive succeeded when he grudgingly admits, Thats pretty good. And if Im lucky, every once in a while, I blow him away."

Cara Castronuova Quotes

"I know that when I get stressed, I want to eat junk food. So now I just know - Im stressed, I want to eat junk food, so Im going to go work out instead, or eat something healthy. It really works."

Hal Borland Quotes

"In a painful time of my life I went often to a wooded hillside where May apples grew by the hundreds, and I thought the sourness of their fruit had a symbolism for me. Instead, I was to find both love and happiness soon thereafter. So to me [the May apple] is the mandrake, the love symbol, of the old dealers in plant restoratives."

Stephen Amell Quotes

Quotes About Buber

"Most of all I found myself listening- listening in the acutely active way that makes dialogue a truly hermeneutical act. Hermeneutics is the science of the interpretation of texts. Hermeneutics helps bring the meanings in texts to expression. Conversation as a hermeneutical enterprise helps persons bring their own meanings to expression. With sensitive, active listening we "hear out of" each other things we needed to bring to word but could not, without an other. This is Martin Bubers "I Thou" relationship with its dialogical transcendence; this is Reuel Howes "miracle of dialogue." - Author: James W. Fowler

Quotes About Spijt

"[...] We leiden ons leven weliswaar allemaal in de verwachting van betere tijden, maar tegelijk verlangen we vaak met spijt terug naar het verleden. Het heden beschouwen we daarentegen als iets heel tijdelijks, als niet anders dan de weg naar ons doel. Om die reden zien de meeste mensen, wanneer ze op hun leven terugkijken, dat ze voortdurend ad interim hebben geleefd, en stellen ze tot hun verbazing vast dat wat ze zo achteloos en zonder ervan genoten te hebben voorbij hebben laten gaan precies de dingen waren in de verwachting waarvan ze geleefd hadden." - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

Quotes About Violet

"He knew many things now that he had not known only a short time earlier. He knew that despite all the good things happening now, John would still miss his parents, and Violet and her family would still miss her brother, and Nicholas would miss having John at the Manor, and when Viloet went away to art school, he would miss her, too.Nothings easy, Nicholas thought, sneaking glances at his friends, who were serving themselves more pie. But some things help." - Author: Trenton Lee Stewart

Quotes About Nieve

"Los pájaros se entierran en pleno cielo. Incluso la más elegante de las nubes está repleta de sus cuerpecitos yertos.Se dice que de cada 10.189 gotas de lluvia, 1 sería la lágrima de un pájaro y que de cada 16.474 copos de nieve, 1 el fantasma de un pájaro descolgado de la placenta celeste." - Author: Mathias Malzieu

Quotes About Picture Desperation

"Soul. The word rebounded to me, and I wondered, as I often had, what it was exactly. People talked about it all the time, but did anybody actually know? Sometimes Id pictured it like a pilot light burning inside a person--a drop of fire from the invisible inferno people called God. Or a squashy substance, like a piece of clay or dental mold, which collected the sum of a persons experiences--a million indentations of happiness, desperation, fear, all the small piercings of beauty weve ever known." - Author: Sue Monk Kidd

Quotes About The Giver Book

Quotes About Problems Tagalog Tumblr

"Thought and science are therefore raising problems which their terms of study can never answer, many of which are doubtless problems only for thought. The trisection of an angle is similarly an insoluble problem only for compass and straight-edge construction, and Achilles cannot overtake the tortoise so long as their progress is considered piecemeal, endlessly having the distance between them. However, as it is not Achilles but the method of measurement which fails to catch up with the tortoise, so it is not man but his method of thought which fails to find fulfillment in experience." - Author: Alan Wilson Watts

Quotes About Disappointment And Anger

"The other night we talked about literatures elimination of the unessential, so that we are given a concentrated "dose" of life. I said, almost indignantly, "Thats the danger of it, it prepares you to live, but at the same time, it exposes you to disappointments because it gives a heightened concept of living, it leaves out the dull or stagnant moments. You, in your books, also have a heightened rhythm, and a sequence of events so packed with excitement that I expected all your life to be delirious, intoxicated."Literature is an exaggeration, a dramatization, and those who are nourished on it (as I was) are in great danger of trying to approximate an impossible rhythm. Trying to live up to Dostoevskian scenes every day. And between writers there is a straining after extravagance. We incite each other to jazz-up our rhythm." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Preventive
