Ander Monson Quotes

"Anything I run across can light up the circuitry of my brain, and set me on an adventure. To research strains of yeast; hiccup fetishists; the proper use of inverse, obverse, converse and reverse; the ratio of main narrative to tangent, of forward action to aside. What else do we do but quest, pursue meaning in the information wash? Where does that storm sewer opening from the river into the citys underneath go to, anyhow? I grab a headlamp and head in. Its long and low and dark and stinks and extends for miles. Underneath the city is another city. The one above begins to disappear. Thats what were after, isnt it? To disappear? To venture into darkness, to let what we know or think we know recede for an hour, a day, a novels length, and see what meaning can be made of what remains?"

Bob Ainsworth Quotes

"My heroes are the non-commissioned officers. If I had another life thats what Id be - a regimental sergeant major or a similar rank. Thats where the spirit of the armed forces is."

Mauriel Joslyn Quotes

"…little people like me have to keep the true story alive. That way, when the revolution ends, and people come looking for the history, we can say, ‘Here it is – we kept it for you."

Ronan Farrow Quotes

"Being under the microscope meant I was never given any slack. I still managed to screw up plenty in life, mind you, but in the things I really cared about - the legal work, or the stories I was telling as a writer, or the office I built in government - I wasnt left a lot of margin for error. Its kept me driven."

Nick Clooney Quotes

"In matters large and small, many people seemed concerned about churlishness, an ugliness in our relationships that appears to be increasing rather than decreasing."

Mary Midgley Quotes

"The symbolism of meat-eating is never neutral. To himself, the meat-eater seems to be eating life. To the vegetarian, he seems to be eating death. There is a kind of gestalt-shift between the two positions which makes it hard to change, and hard to raise questions on the matter at all without becoming embattled."

Andri Azis Quotes

"Berjalanlah agar yang indah-indah menjadi terkenang. Melepaskan bukan berarti menghilangkannya. Melepaskan itu justru membebaskan untuk bisa memilih. Memilih bagian mana yang akan tetap tinggal dan mana yang akan pergi."

Jeev Milkha Singh Quotes

"For golf, being in the Olympics is a big boost. More so for Indian golf."

Quotes About Prawda

"Skoro tylko kot doprowadzony został do komisariatu, stwierdzono tam, że rzeczony obywatel intensywnie wonieje spirytusem, w związku z czym jego zeznań nie przyjęto za dobrą monetę. Tymczasem staruszka, dowiedziawszy się od sąsiadów, że jej kota przymknęli, popędziła do komisariatu i zdążyła na czas. Wystawiła kotu jak najpochlebniejsze świadectwo, zeznała, że zna go od pięciu lat, od małego kociaka, że ręczy za niego jak za samą siebie, udowodniła, że nigdy jeszcze się nie zdarzyło, by przyłapano go na czymś zdrożnym, oraz że nigdy nie wyjeżdżał do Moskwy. W Armawirze się urodził, tu się wychował, tu się kształcił w łowach na myszy.Kot został uwolniony z więzów i zwrócony właścicielce, acz, co prawda, ciężko doświadczony przez los – przekonał się bowiem na własnej skórze, co to znaczy fałszywe posądzenie i oszczerstwo." - Author: Mikhail Bulgakov

Quotes About Migrations

"Even in a minute instance, it is best to look first to the main tendencies of Nature. A particular flower may not be dead in early winter, but the flowers are dying; a particular pebble may never be wetted with the tide, but the tide is coming in. To the scientific eye all human history is a series of collective movements, destructions or migrations, like the massacre of flies in winter or the return of birds in spring." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Religious Diversity

"In this postcolonial context, my contention is that interreligious engagement is enhanced by renewed attention to the particularity of religious traditions. From a European (Anglican) standpoint, a revised particularist theology of religions is proposed as an appropriate Christian theology for our time that respects the integrity of Christianity and of other religious traditions. This particularist approach concerns Christian terms of engagement with other religious traditions, as these may be understood in Christian theological terms. Having regard to questions raised in the opening paragraph above, centred in trinitarian thinking, as capable of hospitality to the liberative and interreligious concerns of post-colonial, Asian and feminist theologies; respectful interreligious engagement and the pursuit of gender justice amid increasing global diversity need not require repudiation of orthodox trinitarian thought and its liturgical expressions." - Author: Jenny Daggers
