Quotes About Extending Love

"Rakitin doesnt understand it, all he wants is to build his house and rent out rooms...Life is simple for Rakitin: Youd do better to worry about extending mans civil rights, he told me today, or at least about not letting the price of beef go up; youd render your love for mankind more simply and directly that way than with any philosophies. But I came back at him: And without God, I said, youll hike up the price of beef yourself, if the chance comes your way, and make a rouble on every kopeck." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Love Reddit

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. Youd be surprised how far that gets you. - Neil deGrasse Tysons response on Reddit when asked "What can you tell a young man looking for motivation in life itself?"http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments..." - Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quotes About Great Halls

"Martin thought of the iron El trestles winding and stretching across the city, of department store windows and hotel lobbies, of electric elevators and street-car ads, of the city pressing its way north on both sides of the great park, of dynamos and electric lights, of ten-story hotels, of the old iron tower near the depot at West Brighton with its two steam-driven elevators rising and falling in the sky--and in his blood he felt a surge of restlessness, as if he were a steam train spewing fiery coal smoke into the black night sky as he roared along a trembling El track, high above the dark storefronts, the gaslit saloons, the red-lit doorways, the cheap beer dives, the dance halls, the gambling joints, the face in the doorway, the sudden cry in the night." - Author: Steven Millhauser
