[Pitchers Did Me A Favor When They Knocked Me Down. It Made Me More Determined. I Wouldn't Let That Pitcher Get Me Out. They Say You Can't Hit If You're On Your Back, But I Didn't Hit On My Back. I Got Up.]

Quotes About Borders

"I might be tempted to make to Christendom a proposal different from that of the Bible society. Let us collect all the New Testaments we have, let us bring them out to an open square or up to the summit of a mountain, and while we all kneel let one man speak to God thus: Take this book back again; we men, such as we now are, are not fit to go in for this sort of thing, it only makes us unhappy, This is my proposal, that like those inhabitants in Gerasa we beseech Christ to depart from our borders. This would be an honest and human way of talking -- rather different from the disgusting hypocritical priestly fudge..." - Author: Søren Kierkegaard

Quotes About Success Not Coming Easy

"The village lay in the hollow, and climbed, with very prosaic houses, the other side. Village architecture does not flourish in Scotland. The blue slates and the grey stone are sworn foes to the picturesque; and though I do not, for my own part, dislike the interior of an old-fashioned pewed and galleried church, with its little family settlements on all sides, the square box outside, with its bit of a spire like a handle to lift it by, is not an improvement to the landscape. Still, a cluster of houses on differing elevations - with scraps of garden coming in between, a hedgerow with clothes laid out to dry, the opening of a street with its rural sociability, the women at their doors, the slow waggon lumbering along - gives a centre to the landscape. It was cheerful to look at, and convenient in a hundred ways. ("The Open Door")" - Author: Margaret Oliphant

Quotes About Abihu

"And those who will carefully study the so-called Mosaic code contained in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, will see that, though Jahvehs prohibitions of certain forms of immorality are strict and sweeping, his wrath is quite as strongly kindled against infractions of ritual ordinances. Accidental homicide may go unpunished, and reparation may be made for wilful theft. On the other hand, Nadab and Abihu, who offered strange fire before Jahveh, which he had not commanded them, were swiftly devoured by Jahvehs fire; he who sacrificed anywhere except at the allotted place was to be cut off from his people; so was he who ate blood; and the details of the upholstery of the Tabernacle, of the millinery of the priests vestments, and of the cabinet work of the ark, can plead direct authority from Jahveh, no less than moral commands." - Author: Thomas Henry Huxley

Quotes About Local News

"Be very careful of what you allow to infiltrate your consciousness and subconsciousness. When you watch too much television, youll start to feel inferior from all the commercials hard selling the idea that youre not complete unless you buy their product [...] The ad agencies appeal to your fear of not being wanted or loved. Its the same with the local news. They get you to stay tuned with a constant stream of fear tactics [...] Its as if our culture is addicted to fear and the flat screen is our drug dealer. Dont allow that crap into your head!" - Author: RuPaul

Quotes About Religion Nietzsche

"Since I was in flight from religion, I assumed that my classmates had to be in flight from religion too, albeit in a quieter, savvier way than I had as yet been able to discover. Only today do I realize how mistaken I was. They were never in flight at all. Nor are their children in flight, or their grandchildren. By the time I reached by seventieth year, I used to predict, all the churches in the world would have been turned into barns or museums or potteries. But I was wrong. Behold, new churches spring up every day, all over the place, to say nothing of mosques. So Nietzsches dictum needs to be amended: while it may be so that only the higher animals are capable of boredom, man proves himself highest of all by domesticating boredom, giving it a home." - Author: J.M. Coetzee
