Jack Whiteside Parsons Quotes

"Freedom like charity, begins at home. No man is worthy to fight in the cause of freedom unless he has conquered his internal masters. He must learn control and discipline over the disastrous passions that would lead him to folly and ruin. He must conquer inordinate vanity and anger, self-deception, fear, and inhibition."

David Samuels Quotes

"Reality. Look, take the Muslim Brothers. They were very strong and very great until they woke up one morning and were in charge. Everything was good as long as it was theoretical. But in the morning, when you have to pay the subsidy for the pita, theory is not enough. For example, they wanted tourists not to wear bikinis. No bikinis, no tourism. No tourism, no work. Look, the world isnt changed by ideologues."

Quotes About Concern For Someone

"I settled back on the bed with my own heavy sigh. "The point of this reluctant outpouring of all my crap isnt to make you feel guilty. I dont need anyone to be concerned for me. Thats my point. Will that change one day? I dont know. Im not asking it to. But Rhian, when you trusted James with all you baggage you decided that day that you were asking someone to be concerned. You were tired of being alone. Will staying with him be hard? Yes. Will fighting your fears every day be difficult? Yes. But how he feels for you... jeez, Rhian... thats worth it. And telling yourself that its okay to run way from him to be alone just because Im alone and okay with it, is bullshit. Im alone because I just am. Youre alone because you made a choice. And its the wrong fucking choice." - Author: Samantha Young

Quotes About Long School Days

"Distances and days existed in themselves then; they all had a story. They were not barriers. If a person wanted to get to the moon, there is a way; it all depended on whether you knew the directions... on whether you knew the story of how others before you had gone. He had believed in the stories for a long time, until the teachers at Indian school taught him not to believe in that kind of "nonsense". But they had been wrong." - Author: Leslie Marmon Silko

Quotes About Steepness

"There is a sacred horror about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills; but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling. Every summit seems an exaggeration. Climbing wearies. The steepnesses take away ones breath; we slip on the slopes, we are hurt by the sharp points which are its beauty; the foaming torrents betray the precipices, clouds hide the mountain tops; mounting is full of terror, as well as a fall. Hence, there is more dismay than admiration. People have a strange feeling of aversion to anything grand. They see abysses, they do not see sublimity; they see the monster, they do not see the prodigy." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Clicky Groups

"Although he was a young and virile man at 37, he was not inexhaustible. In addition to food and drink, he had better lay in a couple thousand tablets of viagra. The drug would probably remain potent if he vacuum packed the pills in groups of 10 and kept them in a freezer. That would work unless civilization completely collapsed and power companies were unable to function. Fortunately, Jim had a propane-powered backup generator with half a dozen tanks of fuel already on hand. If Henry added to the propane supply, and he used the generator only for essential maintenance like keeping the viagra freezer operating in warm weather, he would be happy here on the farm for a looong, looong time. Unless, even now, dead Jim was out there in the generator shed sabotaging the machinery." - Author: Dean Koontz
