"Our single greatest challenge is the ability to move power to markets outside North Dakota."

Bill Styron Quotes

"Perhaps the critics are right: this generation may not produce literature equal to that of any past generation--who cares? The writer will be dead before anyone can judge him--but he must go on writing, reflecting disorder, defeat, despair, should that be all he sees at the moment, but ever searching for the elusive love, joy, and hope--qualities which, as in the act of life itself, are best when they have to be struggled for, and are not commonly come by with much ease, either by a critics formula or by a critics yearning."

Valerie Frankel Quotes

Candace Watters Quotes

"This is not another book about seeking fulfillment in your singleness. As beings created in Gods image, we were designed for relationship—thats why extended singleness leaves so many women discontent. Its also why we should be intentional about finding fulfillment in marriage. Getting married isnt just something thats ‘nice if it happens. Marriage is what most of us are called to pursue."

Zalman Schachter Shalomi Quotes

Giorgio Agamben Quotes

"Uma obra crítica ou filosófica, que não se mantenha de alguma maneira numa relação essencial com a criação, está condenada a girar no vazio, do mesmo modo que uma obra de arte ou de poesia, que não contenha em si uma exigência crítica, está destinada ao esquecimento."

TA Webb Quotes

"I like you, Mark, and I hope youll come see me again. Youre a nice guy and you have an old soul. I hope we can be friends."

Kathleen Jamie Quotes

"We know we are a species obsessed with itself and its own past and origins. We know we are capable of removing from the sanctuary of the earth shards and fragments, and gently placing them in museums. Great museums in great cities—the hallmarks of civilisation."

Quotes About God And His Creation

"Kali comes from the Sanskrit word ‘kal, meaning time. She is a Hindu goddess, who is greatly misunderstood by the Western world as being associated with sex, death and violence, but in the Hindu text she kills only demons. For humankind, she represents the death of the ego and the will to overcome the ‘I am the body idea. She reminds us that the body is only temporary, and through this realisation she provides liberation to her children. To the soul who aspires to greater spiritual endeavours, Kali is receptive, supportive and loving. It is only a person filled with ego who will perceive Kali in a fearsome form. Her black skin represents the womb of the quantum darkness, the great non-manifest from which all of creation arises and into which all of creation will eventually dissolve." - Author: Traci Harding

Quotes About Law And Ethics

"All rational knowledge is either material, and concerns some objects, or formal, and is occupied only with the form of understanding and reason itself and with the universal rules of thinking, without regard to distinctions among objects. formal philosophy is called logic. Material philosophy, however, which has to do with definite object objects and the laws to which they are subject, is divided into two parts. This is because these laws are either laws of nature or laws of freedom. The science of the former is called physics, and that of the latter ethics. The former is also called theory of nature and the latter theory of morals." - Author: Immanuel Kant

Quotes About Skiing And Life

"Speech, tennis, music, skiing, manners, love- you try them waking and perhaps balk at the jump, and then youre over. Youve caught the rhythm of them once and for all, in your sleep at night. The city, of course, can wreck it. So much insomnia. So many rhythms collide. The salesgirl, the landlord, the guests, the bystanders, sixteen varieties of social circumstance in a day. Everyone has the power to call your whole life into question here. Too many people have access to your state of mind. Some people are indifferent to dislike, even relish it. Hardly anyone I know." - Author: Renata Adler

Quotes About Cubicle

"Люди производят продукт, о котором не имеют никакого понятия, – продолжал он. – Несмотря на то, что ежедневно думают только про него. Как бы ни называлась человеческая профессия, это просто участок карьера по добыче денег. Человек работает в нем всю жизнь. У него это называется «карьерой», хе-хе… Не подумайте, что я злорадствую, но современное рабочее место в офисе – cubicle – даже внешне похоже на стойло крупного рогатого скота. Только вместо ленты с кормом перед мордой офисного пролетария стоит монитор, по которому этот корм показывают в дигитальном виде. Что вырабатывается в стойле? Ответ настолько очевиден, что вошел в идиоматику самых разных языков. Человек делает деньги." - Author: Victor Pelevin
