"Good nutrition and vitamins do not directly cure disease, the body does. You provide the raw materials and the inborn wisdom of your body makes the repairs. Someday healthcare without megavitamin therapy will be seen as we today see childbirth without sanitation or surgery without anaesthetic."

Aesop Quotes

"It is one thing to conceive a good plan, and another to execute it"

Sean Bean Quotes

"I sort of leave the character at the end of the day. I dont carry anything around with me - no excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think its too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective - your work is your work, and your leisure time is something else."

Margaret Mazzantini Quotes

"Gli amori nuovi sono pieni di paure, Angela, non hanno un posto nel mondo e non hanno capolinea."

Danielle Raine Quotes

"The cruel irony of housework: people only notice when you dont do it."

Trinh T Minh Ha Quotes

"Neither black/red/yellow nor woman but poet or writer. For many of us, the question of priorities remains a crucial issue. Being merely "a writer" without a doubt ensures one a status of far greater weight than being "a woman of color who writes" ever does. Imputing race or sex to the creative act has long been a means by which the literary establishment cheapens and discredits the achievements of non-mainstream women writers. She who "happens to be" a (non-white) Third World member, a woman, and a writer is bound to go through the ordeal of exposing her work to the abuse and praises and criticisms that either ignore, dispense with, or overemphasize her racial and sexual attributes. Yet the time has passed when she can confidently identify herself with a profession or artistic vocation without questioning and relating it to her color-woman condition."

Francis Assikinack Quotes

"In my opinion, it was chiefly owing to their deep contemplation in their silent retreats in the days of youth that the old Indian orators acquired the habit of carefully arranging their thoughts.They listened to the warbling of birds and noted the grandeur and the beauties of the forest. The majestic clouds—which appear like mountains of granite floating in the air—the golden tints of a summer evening sky, and the changes of nature, possessed a mysterious significance.All of this combined to furnish ample matter for reflection to the contemplating youth."

Michael Hardt Quotes

"Revolution does have to be violent precisely because the Pharaoh wont let you go. If the Pharaoh would let you go, the revolution wont have to be violent."

Enrico Fermi Quotes

"Before I came here I was confused about this subject. Having listened to your lecture I am still confused. But on a higher level."

Daniel Barenboim Quotes

"Anti-Semitism has no historical, political and certainly no philosophical origins. Anti-Semitism is a disease."

Quotes About Soil And Water

"The soil in which the meditative mind can begin is the soil of everyday life, the strife, the pain, and the fleeting joy. It must begin there, and bring order, and from there move endlessly. But if you are concerned only with making order, then that very order will bring about its own limitation, and the mind will be its prisoner. In all this movement you must somehow begin from the other end, from the other shore, and not always be concerned with this shore or how to cross the river. You must take a plunge into the water, not knowing how to swim. And the beauty of meditation is that you never know where you are, where you are going, what the end is." - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti

God was hissun before — now that sun became all darkness… He was without God — hewas as if he had no God. All that God had been to him before was taken fromhim now. He was Godless — deprived of his God. He had the feeling of thecondemned, when the Judge says: "Depart from me, ye cursed," "who shallbe punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord andfrom the glory of his power." He felt that God said the same to him. Ah! This isthe hell which Christ suffered. The ocean of Christs sufferings isunfathomable… He was forsaken in the [place] of sinners. If you close with himas your surety, you will never be forsaken… "My God, my God, why hast thouforsaken me?" [The answer?] For me — for me." - Author: Robert Murray McCheyne

Quotes About Lucian Freud

"Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross." - Author: Michael Ondaatje

Quotes About Fish Dying

"Stop being so greedy, and so selfish. Realize that there is more to the world than your big houses and fancy stores. People are starving and you worry about oil for your cars. Babies are dying of thirst and you search the fashion pages for the latest styles. Nations like ours are drowing in poverty, but your people dont even hear our cries for help. You shut your ears to the voices of those who try to tell you these things. You label them radicals or Communists. You must open your hearts to the poor and downtrodden, instead of driving them further into poverty and servitude. Theres not much time left. If you dont change, youre doomed." - Author: John Perkins
