Fritz Perls Quotes

Queen Victoria Quotes

"When I think of a merry, happy, free young girl - and look at the ailing, aching state a young wife generally is doomed to - which you cant deny is the penalty of marriage."

Eugene Field Quotes

"Ideas came with explosive immediacy, like an instant birth. Human thought is like a monstrous pendulum; it keeps swinging from one extreme to the other."

Deborah Feldman Quotes

"Later, in my adulthood, I will read the book again, even watch the movie, and understand that I wasnt equipped, as a child, to make room for arguments that would undermine every single choice made for me, that would shatter the foundations of my very existence. I would see that I had to believe everything I was taught, if only to survive. For a long time I wouldnt be ready to accept that my worldview could be wrong, but I do not look back with shame at my ignorance."

Jacobus Henricus Van T Hoff Quotes

"A famous name has this peculiarity that it becomes gradually smaller especially in natural sciences where each succeeding discovery invariably overshadows what precedes."

Gregor Wurst Quotes

"If the Gospel of Judas found in Codex Tchacos can be convincingly identified as being a Coptic translation of the original Greek Gospel of Judas that Bishop Ireneaus mentioned around A.D. 180 in his book, "Against Heresies," it will be an important step in the study of ancient gnosticism. We would have for the first time the chance to trace back the history of Sethian gnosticism to before the time of Irenaeus. This would be a significant gain in our knowledge of early Christianity."

Avantika Quotes

Quotes About Improper

"Theyre both about the correct or proper way to do something. There is a correct and proper way to use words and there is a correct and proper way to behave with other people.

Quotes About Buddhist

"I know a wise Buddhist monk who, in a speech to his fellow countrymen, once said hed love to know why someone who boasts that he is the cleverest, the strongest, the bravest or the most gifted man on earth is thought ridiculous and embarrassing, whereas if, instead of I, he says, we are the most intelligent, the strongest, the bravest and the most gifted people on earth, his fellow countrymen applaud enthusiastically and call him a patriot. For there is nothing patriotic about it. One can be attached to ones own country without needing to insist that the rest of the worlds inhabitants are worthless. But as more and more people were taken in by this sort of nonsense, the menace to peace grew greater." - Author: Ernst Hans Josef Gombrich

Quotes About New Urbanism

"Although it has become the most visible of American suburban landscapes, the edge node has few architectural defenders. Even developers despair: Shopping centers built only in the 1960s are already being abandoned. Their abandonment brings down the values of nearby neighbourhoods. Wal-Marts built five years ago are already being abandoned for superstores. We have built a world of junk, a degraded environment. It may be profitable for a short-term, but its long-term economic prognosis is bleak. -Dolores Hayden quoting Robert Davis, Postscript, in Congress for the New Urbanism, Charter of the New Urbanism, 2002." - Author: Dolores Hayden

Quotes About Working Out For Yourself

"I gather," he added, "that youve never had much time to study the classics?""That is so.""Pity. Pity. Youve missed a lot. Everyone should be made to study the classics, if I had my way."Poirot shrugged his shoulders."Eh bien, I have got on very well without them.""Got on! Got on? Its not a question of getting on.

Thats the mistake we all make. Take yourself now, youre getting on, youll be wanting to get out of things, to take things easy--what are you going to do then with your leisure hours?" - Author: Agatha Christie
